A reworked view from Cromarty. (2 images to make the pano instead of 3. I also used Photoshop to do the stitching instead of Microsoft ICE)

Stiga I like these photos. I'm still playing with and learning my very new G5X.
It's certainly different to the G12.

I see you mention HDR in one. Do you run that in most, all landscape shots.

Hi avondale, yes I often do use HDR for landscapes but, if there is full sun on the main subject, I soft-pedal it - otherwise one ends up with a very flat image. Here is an example wherte HDR has not worked very well.

I used my usual workhorse SNS-HDR 2 for this one

Here is the original JPEG with just a few Photosjop tweaks

In some ways, the G5 X is similar to the G12 but resolution at infinity is superior becous of the larger sensor.

I see what you mean Stiga, about the HDR and the top image.

I actually discovered something today.
I've always followed the advice to format card in camera. Until the G5X.
I had an empty card, inserted and charged off into the great unknowns.
I wasn't overly impressed.
Focus was iffy, exposure too, generally a bit contankerous all round. I read more and played more.
Then I put in another card, formatted and voila. My woes suddenly ended.
It was unreal the difference in camera behaviour. It transformed into what I believed it should be.
Seeing is believing they say.

If you are going to take bracketed shots any time, make sure you have a fast card. I use a Sandex Extreme 90Mbit/sec

Thank you Jim. It has been the hottest summer for a long time and obviously some things have liked it. We have more apples than we know what to do with. I suppose we should be making cider!

Hope your wife continues to recover from her ordeal.

Beautiful looking apples, and garden.
You certainly get results from that G5X.

I've very mixed feelings about mine.
It's rather erratic in the focus department.

Richard, many thanks. I had focussing problems when IU started using the G5 X but I found this Canon Knowlege Base page very helpful. Images are blurry or not in focus (PowerShot G5 X). Images are blurry or not in focus (PowerShot G5 X) (external link) As long as I am careful when I half-press the fireing button, I now get consistent results. But if I grab a shot without care, half my shots are focussed incorrectly.

If you Google focusing with the G5 X, you will also find useful discussions on other forums.

Thanks Stiga.
I do need to read up on it as it's a nifty little camera and in every way fits my needs for intended use.
I'd been spending so much time with my main camera and would grab the G5X and expect it to just perform.
(I'm sure my G12 was never this cantankerous  :p
