When I bought this camera I was a bit worried that I could not buy a Canonon lens-hood for it. It seems that I need not have worried :-)

Is there a way of preventing the focus frame from moving around on the screen?

I am not sure what you mean.

I have my G5X set to single point focus - which is always in the middle of the screen. So, my method is to place that on the object I wish to be sharp, half-press the firing button, re-frame the image and then complete the shot with full button pressure.

This image illustrates one of my single-pout focus shots. The tip of the red bar is in perfect focus and was in the middle of the screen inside the little focusing box before re-framing the shot.

Thank you for your help. I realized what was happening to me. I was using the viewfinder but also had the LCD screen facing me and when I would put my eye to the viewfinder my nose would touch the LCD screen and redirect the frame some where else. I simply reversed the screen facing into the camera body.

LOL! I always use LCD or viewfinder.

Well done. A nicely framed shot.

The second suits me best, what do the black stones indicate?

Where were these shots taken. They remind me of Deaath vally.

This is Death Valley. The stones are just desert art. Nothing ancient...in this photo other than the surrounding area.

It's getting on for 45 years since I drove through Death Valley but I still have vivid memories of that trip.

Thanks for posting.
