As much as I like my G11, I find I am itching to get around some of its limitations.
I do a lot of custom shooting, bracketing for conditions etc. and I find my G11 doesn't let me do all that I want it to. Don't get me wrong, I really like it for what it is, but the tiny sensor does have limitations. And I will keep the G11 for its intended purpose, but sometimes I need a little more versatility......
DOF is nearly non existent, thats one thing I wish I could work around. The shutter lag bugs me sometimes too. And the reach is a little short for my liking.
I have been looking at the specs on a Pro1 and see that it has a larger sensor than the G9 or G11. I know the Pro1 is old and outdated, but it seems to still be a pretty good camera. I can't afford a G1X right now but thought a used Pro1 might offer some things my G11 doesn't.
I actually bought a used Pro1 yesterday to play with and compare. Got a great deal on it.
Have any of you Pro1 owners out there had a G series as well? Do you have any picture and camera usage comparisons to see side by side how the Pro1 stands up to the G9 & 11? I use G9 & G11 because I have owned both of those.
And one last thing - I know how to do a "shutter actuation" count on the G9 and G11. I tried the same process with the Pro1 and it doesn't work.
Does anyone know how to do a total picture count on the camera?
