Derek,

I can carry mine in the inside pocket of my jacket. That pocket in my jacket is large enough to hold an iPhone and two packs if cigarettes, or one full size hand held 2-way radio to give you an idea of size.

Jon...

Thanks Jon,

guess I'm off to the store..:)

Derek

I don't know about that "shot" myself looks like a tough lie with those Pinecones in the way?

Very cool photo though.:mrgreen:

Good grief, how did I miss that blatantly obvious pun. :facepalm:

Can anyone tell me..

is the G12 'pocketable', at least in, say, a jacket/coat pocket: a shirt top pocket is obvously a no-no. Am seriously tempted by this G12, but it MUST be pocketable.

If not, looks like the LX5 is a contender (:oops:)

Don't dare try one in the dealer's, 'cause I know what will happen..


Thanks

Derek

It's pretty pocketable, especially in a coat. In the summer I have to put it in my lunchbox it's a bit wide. I was looking at the LX5 too, but the G12 won since it's compatible with canon speedlights.

I just returned from a month-long trip, and carried my G11 (same size as G12) in this bag from SFbags. I got the largest size, 42 (4.5" x 3" x 2"), which appears to be the smallest sized bag I found that fits my G11.

I like the included carabiner clip, because I can easily clip it to a belt loop on my right side and walk around without it swinging wildly. It's also easy to move to a front belt loop when sitting down, or remove from a belt loop and place the bag on a table or in a storage bin in my car. The bag also fits in a regular coat pocket if desired.

I found I preferred this method of carry to other bags I've tried, including a bag attached to my belt.

WOW.....for $1,099.00 it better cook me breakfast.

It does look very solid though and I suspect you get what you pay for.

Jon...

I bought the Ikelite housing for mine, a bit bulkier than this one is I'm sure but I paid about $650 for it, otherwise you have the canon one as an option as well....

Anyone noticed that the UK price has gone up? Two weeks ago Park Cameras wanted £389 - it's now £419:mad:

Have seen it elsewhere for as much as £429...

Can you point me in the right direction for that housing? Looking for something to protect the G in my WW Kayak. Great shot BTW.

Thanks for that - I got mine from Backscatter - www.backscatter.com (external link) - the ali housings are a little expensive but you get what you pay for.

Canon have their own housing which is about $200 so this may be a better option for you.

It's far cheaper to house a compact than a DSLR :cry::cry:

Derek - I used to have the LX3, which my wife has since I got the G12, and I would say the LX5 would be easier to pocket than the G12; unless you have the EVF attached.
The LX3 is a cracking camera and I got some lovely images from it.
The G12 fits into a fleece pocket with no problems, but NOT in the old jeans pocket!!

Some of the first pictures I've taken with the G12; I've not managed to get out much with it yet.

Wolverton, Bucks, UK.

Derek I've had both a G11 and now an LX5.

Frankly the lens protrudes so much on the LX5 that it's only slightly smaller than the G11 was.
It is lighter.

I carry or have carried both in a suitable pocket in my scottevest. It works very well for me. I wouldn't think to carry either in pants pockets, or a shirt pocket. Some jackets have large enough pockets.

Cargot pants certainly have large enough pockets.

If carrying is an issue, and it sometimes is for me, I would rush and buy an S95 and put a Richard Franiec grip on it.

Finally, the screen on my G11 was always usable. The viewfinder was a welcome asset. On the other hand, the screen on the LX5 is not readable when I take the camera skiing. So I bought the electronic view finder. It's costly!

I regret not buying the S95 and Franiec grip.

Best,


Dave

You can. I did this with PaintShop Pro X2 although Elements can do it too.
