The wifi has stopped working on my G1X MK II.
I first thought it was just because I upgraded to Windows 10, but it doesnt even connect to the access point, just searches endlessly.

Trumper, are you based in the UK or USA? If you're in the USA, be sure to order from the correct Amazon site. The link you provided is Amazon UK, just in case you didn't realize. :-)

I literally jumped out of the car and took this shot before we had to leave. Church ruins at the Pueblo in Taos, NM. It was closed when we arrived in the early morning for a wedding, so we had to come back later, but not before I grabbed this shot. Didn't realize my ISO was 2000 - I certainly did not need a SS of 1/250s for this shot. Still, even with the ISO and 12MP, it makes a nice 16x24" print. (.jpg sky artifacts are not in the print or 16bit tiffs).

I'm sad to say I don't use mine much.
As I get older I have downsized my travel kit and will take the G1X II as a back up and only bring one DSLR.
I have seen many great photos taken by you folks and need to get up to speed with it.

I just placed my order for a refurbished G1X Mk II from Canon ($549 and it comes with the custom grip). I'm pretty stoked to get it and start using it.

I've had a G10 for years and I'm finally going to upgrade. I'll be selling the G10 with an underwater housing on here soon :)

I'll be purchasing an underwater housing for the G1XIIfor a trip to Punta Cana in April.

Has anyone here used the G1XII with studio lighting/off camera flash? I'm interested how it would perform as a DSLR backup if needed.

Have not done that yet, but had wondered the same thing. Should be just fine. Am picking up a flash in a day or so, and will soon find out. I suppose you have had a chance to test drive yours a bit now. Any opinions?

In general, the only thing that has me a little disappointed so far is the performance at high ISO.

Nice macro capability with this cam and it's quick and easy to use. This was on upper Mandeville Canyon.

Very nice shot! Really shows the MkII to be a very capable lightweight grab-and-go camera

Mine has always been a bit of a pain on macro ,i don't know why,i tend to focus manually with macro as well no if it doesn't lock in.

My eyes aren't so good anymore so I virtually never manually focus with this cam. I just take as many images as I can and hope for a winner or two.

Lightweight!

Bought one as a backup for a recent trip in case we didn't get the G16 back from Canon.

Fortunately we did and it was no contest, we took the G16. Have only used the G1X Mk II briefly.

In fairness, as I've mentioned on another thread, it's not helped by not being able to fit the neck strap if using the Canon case. It's a bit heavy, particularly for my wife, if using the wrist strap.

Nice, quality camera though. I will take it out instead of the DSLR sometimes.

Well, it's all a matter of perspective. Compared to my pro bodies... ;-)a
