I was at a pawn shop and a guy had his mint G10 that he was pawning , The shop offed $35 and I butted in and offered $60, Not really up on these cameras the hot shoe caught my eye and after looking into them they are worth around $300 or so used, I guess I got a deal...

my 7D and 5D mk2 share alot of the menu of the G10 so I know my way around except for the widescreen picture mode, whats that for and why does the ring around the lens remove??

thanks .:)


my gear Canon 7D, Canon 5DMK2, 70-200 f2.8 IS, 50mm f1.8, canon 430 speedlight, canon 17-55 2.8 IS, canon 100mm macro sigma 10-20, Canon 17-85 , 60 cokin filters , 2x telecoverter.

You can take off the ring and add an adapter + filter/lens

Bloody hell you got a bargain there mate . In Australia Mine cos 10 x that amount, the G10 takes great photo's. I've had 2 of them with no complaints, except to the guy who stole one of them. They are great for sports too.

They are great to take to events where proffessional or dslr's are not allowed too haha

Widescreen mode just crops the top and bottom of your image in the camera, something you can do better on your computer software. You lose the pixels at the bottom and top, but some people would rather have the camera do the work of cropping for them to produce a quick JPEG.

The ring around the lens comes off, as stated above, to allow for a lens or filter adapter. Here's a link on Lensmate showing lots of options.

Canon also makes a filter adapter that zooms out and in with the lens, letting you use 58mm filters without concern for vignetting. This adapter will work on the G10/G11/G12, since they all share the same lens.

Here's a comparison on LL involving the G10 and a medium format camera.

The G10 can show a lot of noise at higher ISOs, so try to shoot at lower ISOs. Here's one method recommended on LL again.

Not sure if it was hot or not?? The pawn shops here all have to report camera gear serial numbers to the cops so it is hard to unload hot stuff at shops..

I am shooting more today and I love this thing!! Feels like a tank and shoots the best pics I have ever seen from a non dslr camera.

Only thing I miss is HD wide video

That is a SCREAMING deal on that camera :) The G series are terrific cameras; I'm sure you'll enjoy.
