Hi there, Hiro-

The old saying goes something like this: "If you don't have your camera with you, you can't use it!" Here is a photo I took with the G-11 without flash at ISO 800 (F 4.0 1/100, AWB) to document the shipment of a Pentax K-20 I had sold, and was today shipping to Rome, Italy.

Once again the G-11 came through in a pinch with a great image even under fluorescent lighting, while using AWB.

Have a great day.

Good Morning Hiro-

Well, the S-90 is supposed to be delivered today, so I will also get a thread started, as promised on the SP-90 as well. The S-90 might fit into the case you carry to the classes you teach, because it is a good deal smaller than the G-11 camera.

Have a great day.

Great shot Sarah. My daughter (whose 2) loved seeing Mickey. I love the colour and detail in the shot.

Hope you had a great time at Disney.

Thanks, Shutterbug-

We had a great weekend at Disneyland. The grand children loved it. However, it was a long day for them.

Today we have a lovely G-11 sunset for you. In the Fall, along the Oregon coast line, we have great sunsets.

Have a great day. This photo was taken from our back deck.

Great picture Sarah. I've tried attaching the 10th shot I took with the G11 and the first sunset picture using the camera. I live in a beach community so I'm usually at the water quite often.

Remember....I'm still learning so please be kind

Shutterbug-

Thanks for a nice photo. I have found over the years that by letting the sun in a sunset get down much nearer the horizon line, the color and the drama is actually enhanced.

You can also use the Sunset Scene Mode, or use a bit of minus Exposure Compensation, or add a bit of saturation in post processing.

Have a great day and a Happy Thanksgiving!

I just bought the G11 a few days ago. There wasn't much competition out there except Canon's own S90 and Panasonic's LX3. I ruled out the LX3 first mainly because of it's limited zoom, 60mm is in the realm of "normal" length. Much to short for capturing the kids at play. I would have loved the 24mm end but, that is not as important to me. The S90 size was compelling though again the 100mm vs 140mm reach swayed me to the G11. Not only that but, the hotshoe for future use, the ISO and EV dials are priceless and finally the rotating LCD. My old Nikon CP5700 had one and I've missed it more than I thought.

I shoot RAW exclusively, just my preference of course. The G11 has it so why not squeeze all the detail you can out of it. Also, I'm not a rapid fire shooter so tweaking RAW files from the day won't take much time.

Here are some shots so far, more can be seen here; http://www.pbase.com/ajuett/g11

100 ISO - look out dSLRs




1600 ISO - no flash, a 60w light behind, 40w light to the left of my son.




80 ISO - tripod used and skylight used for lighting.
