Gobeatty,

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
images.

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 :-D

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...

OK, I have a G12 and get a G16 on Thursday. I have primarily shot my pics in P mode. I don't use TV or AV at all. I use most other functions in the camera and of course periodically I use M mode. What is the consensus here? Is this a good choice? Or would I be better off in another mode?

It depends on what you're doing. I have a G15. I use Tv and Av often. When controlling depth of field is important, Av is useful. For a fast shutter speed because the subject is moving, or a slow speed for a long exposure, I choose Tv. M also serves in these situations, but it takes longer to set up. For example, if I'm in public in daylight and I might want to capture a scene quickly, I'll leave the setting at Tv, 1/125, which is fast enough for hand holding, and maybe EC = –1/3 or –2/3 because the G15 tends to overexpose. ISO on AUTO. Then the camera is as close to ready for the average situation as I can get it in advance.

Thanks for the reply. I reposted this here, being I didn't mean to hijack the thread. Still learning :)

I have had an RX100 for over a year, I added the Franiec grip which improved handling, but I do find it a bit too small and the buttons quite fiddly. No problems with the image quality though.


I thought I would try a G16 out as I fancied a change and to see if it could complete with the RX100. After my first few tests I thought I would have to sell it as my first impressions were that the IQ was no where near the RX100 (indoor wide angle). After further tests I feel that although the IQ is not up there with the RX100, for me it beats it in several other areas:-


- Macro
- Zoom speed, the RX100 is quite slow to zoom
- Handling, size, buttons, menus (for me)
- Viewfinder, although pokey and not too accurate, it helps out in some situations
- Wider aperture when zoomed in
- More enjoyable to use (for me)

Not sure whether to keep both or sell one - or sell both when a large sensor G17 (or G1X II) comes out!

Just bought G16 and feel like it. Both burst speed and Full1080P HD video at 60fps are impressive--these are two main reason I want this camera.

Had the Sony RX100 for a couple days--don't like it--for it's colors rendered.

Looking forward G1X Mark II:)

Here are a few pics from the Detroit Institute of Arts. The first two are in the Rivera court. The second pic is of Diego Rivera himself. He is the guy with the derby on.

I have the old g3 ,which used to take the same batteries as my old D30.How things have changed.
I am in a quandry,i have a 5d mk11 with L lenses BUT my wife is fed up with me looking like a tourist lugging bags around [to be honest travelling light sometimes is a welcome change].
If i get the G16 for going on holiday am i likely to miss the 5d and all the lugging around.It will be used for general sight seeing/walking.
How good are the batteries in everyday use.
All advice welcome thanks :)

Gug, what were your settings for those pics?
Used mine the other night indoors at my kids birthday dinner. Some wide open shots at f1.8, sharpish in the centre, but very soft....almost oof.....at the edges. Guess thats not where it really shines.

It was F2.8, 1/125, ISO 250.I also gave the exposure compensation dial a click or two for more light.

It's horses for courses really. I got fed up with taking my Minolta 35mm plus lens plus flash to weddings etc. due to the bulk and used it less and less after buying a compact.

Having now got a DSLR I have a similar problem which is why I bought a G16. Primarily for my wife to use but also provides a less bulky option for me for general sight seeing/holidays and walking etc. and yet can produce very good results and of course can shoot in RAW.

For other uses I will use the DSLR.

Hi folks!

I got my G16 at the beginning of December there, and I'm loving it! I had been borrowing my husbands 400D but it's so darned bulky I couldn't be bothered carrying it around so missed so many opportunities. I really liked taking pictures but as my time behind the camera was sporadic, I wouldn't learn anything so decided to buy a compact camera with some birthday money. If anyone was undecided in what camera to buy, I would 100% recommend this one. Iv taken over 1100 images in the last 2 months and here are some of my favourites:
