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
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
Threw my ST-E2 on the G16 for grins too..
One thing i wasn't expecting though when shooting in Manual mode the flash is also manual.. no E-TTL... not the end of the world but just assumed E-TTL would still work...
