I'm impressed with the sharpness and with the how well it does in mediocre indoor light. I actually was wanting the Sony 100 II, but want nothing without a good viewfinder.
Any advice on what's a high quality 16G memory chip for this Canon?

For the video on this camera, I would use nothing less than a class 10 card @ 45 mb's sec.

Completely agree with the lugging around thing! That was the reason was looking at the new P&S camera... I also share a lot of pics with family via my iphone... and while the iphone does ok, i wanted something that was convenient to carry and could easily transfer to the iphone... So far, very impressed with the G16!



I used to have a full EOS system ... and a number of lenses, speedlite etc. .... and found on a few holidays I left it behind and used wife's compact.
So sold all my kit.
G16 bought last week.

The Sony was my first choice ... but chose G16 for 3 reasons

1. tried cameras side by side and G16 fitted my hands much better, Sony felt far too small and awkward.

2. will be used in underwater housing - and being able to set programmable button for instant custom white balance is a huge benefit, Sony was multi step through menu.

3. The G16 was 30% cheaper :D

My first outing with the G16. Not a very good test as the weather was not cooperating
AND I haven't been able to upgrade the RAW converter for Lightroom yet (Tried DPP but
I either don't know how to use it or it's an awful program.)

Shot in 'A' mode, RAW + sJPEG. Didn't like the jpeg so, used DPP to convert to 16 bit TIFF
and then processed in Lightroom.

Used the optical viewfinder as the LCD is just too 'laggy' for high speed sports.

Can't wait to try it out on a day with some real light.

I know that sunset pix are easy for a camera but, I was looking to see how it would do anyway. I learned that I don't like the factory jpeg conversion. For this pic, I converted a raw file in DPP to tiff and imported to lightroom.

JPEG out of camera. Adjusted exposure, blacks, brightness and contrast in Lightroom.
(If anyone knows of a way to change the camera's jpeg processing, I'd really like to
know)

Generally, you can make adjustments in My Colors menu, and specifically in the Custom option. See pages 75 and 76 in your manual. There are other factors to adjust also, so I would recommend reading all the materials in the P Mode section, beginning on page 67.

Dennis your comments are great!
Had a G16 in my hands. It was hard to leave the store without it....

Canadian shoppers, Henry's had the best price when I checked on www.photoprice.ca (external link) I really miss my G9. (I don't miss my G11; had problems with it requesting date/time constantly. Internal battery?) The G16 focuses so nicely.
So quickly.

fishingjts- Thanks! I really think that I can do quite a bit better once we get some light. These overcast skies wreak havoc on sports photography.

Dennis- Thanks for the heads up. I downloaded the manual and spent some time reading and pushing buttons. When I get time, I'll do some playing to see if I can get the in camera jpegs going my direction. One thing I did notice is that the only way for the My Colors custom settings to work is if I turn off the RAW+sJPEG setting and stick with straight sJPEG. That's a bummer as I like to have RAW files to make up for any mistakes while shooting. If I can get the in-camera jpeg right and my competence up, My Colors just might do the trick.

All in all, I like this little camera. I've read a lot of reviews that call this camera big-ish. I've been using Canon 1D series bodies for the last 5 years or so and don't think that this camera is all that large. It easily fits in my camelbak while mountain biking. Stashes in the center console of my truck without taking up a bunch of space. Clips to my work backpack with a carabiner with no problem.

More to come as time permits.

Two,

I've been trying to just shoot Jpeg lately, set MyColors to Neutral, then PP on my computer(s). I've been retired for several years, and find tweaking photos is less "fun" than it used to be. My "easy button" approach tends more towards simple adjustments in Picasa, or even in PS Elements 10.

I "discovered" this concept by reading how folks without RAW achieved their excellent results on other forums (POTN Small Compacts & DPR Canon).

The above two sample threads showed me you don't always need to shoot RAW. I'm more inclined today to let my camera do more of the work, and enjoy my cameras more, IMHO.

Dennis

I agree with you 100%. If I can get to shooting nothing but JPEG's and let the camera do the work for me, I would be ecstatic. I enjoy shooting and viewing much more than processing!

Thanks for the help and the links. I will do some studying when time permits.

Yeah, I gave up shooting RAW a while back... ;)
