One of the main reasons i bought the G16... for those quick and easy snapshots! ;)

Working from home today... just grabbed the G16 off the desk for a quick snap...

These two are SOOC except for some cropping. I programmed 'my colors' custom to where I thought it would work best. I also enabled 'DR correction' and set it to 200. Good lighting would have help tremendously.

These two were shot in R+JPEG. I didn't like the jpegs at all. With R+JPEG selected, 'my colors' is disabled. So, RAW files processed in Lightroom. Some cropping. Lighting was a little better.

Not bad for a "Point & Shoot"?

What's bugging me a tad with your bike shots is the white parts - highlights - seem blown out. Do the files you see show this or is it an artifact of how the images are posted on the forum?

The first two photos (the landscape ones with riders on the ground) are jpegs sooc and yes, lightroom shows clipping of the highlights. The second two photos (the portrait ones with riders in the air) do not show clipping in lightroom. As you can see in this screenshot, even the original RAW file has very little clipping (I exposed at -1/3 stop during capture):

Any advice that you can offer to help make my pictures better is highly appreciated. If those second two pix look like the highlights are blown, something might not be right artistically despite the data showing otherwise.

Thanks for looking,

Tony.

Thanx for checking! Highlights blowing early is something I associate with P&S photos, so wasn't too surprised to see it from the otherwise excellent small sensor camera, although you wrote it was overcast (low contrast). I'm viewing on an iPad3, which has a reputation for being a high quality monitor, but I didn't check any data. It may also be the way the forum software is compressing or otherwise displaying the photos.

Hey, no problem on digging into this. I'm highly motivated to get better shots and any help I can get is appreciated. Seems like sometimes folks don't like to help. So,thanks.

Anywho, I also use an iPad3 to do much of my viewing and reviewing. Excellent screen! As for the forum monkeying with my photos, I'm doubtful as the images are linked to my pbase site where they are stored. In the future, I'll try underexposing some more and see how that works.

I am beginning to agree that this is a very nice P&S camera. Previously, I had an S90 as my 'pocket camera'. (I normally shoot with a 1DMK4 and an assortment of lenses). I was not at all happy with the s90 picture quality as well as a couple of other items. The G16 is a much better camera IMHO. I am really enjoying it.

Thanks! I am close to pulling the trigger, but wonder if I can just continue with my current plan of carrying just the 6D with 35 f2 when I want to go lite. So much of casual shooting I do is indoors/low light, and the 6D/35 combo is (relatively) light and way more low-light capable than any compact. The compacts do have a flash and the ISO can be turned up to 800 or 1600 to make that tiny flash more useful.

Ah, decisions!

Two is right. The embedded photos are hosted externally, in this case, in Pbase.
The forum software dosn't alter that images in any way. Is the browser in your computer that reads the files in Pbase and display them in your screen.

Attached images are stored in POTN server, however the dimentions in pixels (max.1024) and the file size ( compressed to max. 150KB) are set by the user before uploading them to POTN so neither POTN server nor forum software have an adverse effec on them.

Once AMASS is released, uploading images will be even easier for our members.

Gobeatty,

I haven't done much in the way of low light testing of the G16. Rest assured, the G16 will
not compare to your 6D. If you're expecting similar results, you will be disappointed. The
G16 is not an SLR. When viewing the jpeg's and raw files at 100%, I can see that the image
is not as clean as what comes out of my 1D. But, using good technique can result in usable
images.

One of the reasons I've been shooting motocross first with this camera is that mx is a very
challenging subject to shoot. I figured that if I could get at least some decent images from
a couple hours worth of shooting, this camera would do well (well for a p&s) in most other
situations. Next up on the testing schedule is landscapes, macros and some of my pets.

Just for kicks, I mounted my 600ex-rt flash on the G16. Looked odd, but worked fine.
Not sure if I'll ever do so in an effort to photograph anything for real. I was only looking to
see if and how it would work :-D

Blown out highlights such as those shown will be blown out on a DSLR also. The sheer sun coming off those areas will have no detail, or perhaps a little if you lowered exposure to make everything else much too dark.

OK, I have a G12 and get a G16 on Thursday. I have primarily shot my pics in P mode. I don't use TV or AV at all. I use most other functions in the camera and of course periodically I use M mode. What is the consensus here? Is this a good choice? Or would I be better off in another mode?
