  • Canon G2

    Sorry this should have been posted as a reply to the earlier thread on Canon G2/G3 cameras. Inadvertently hit the new thread key.

    I have had my G2 since November. So far I am very pleased with it. It allows me to use my Canon 550 ex flash and Photoshop will import the images from the camera directly.

    It saved my bacon a couple times in the photography class I was taking when I did not have the time to shoot, develop/print,scan and process the digital images. So I just whipped out the G2 and went directly to digital capture.

    I made some pretty slick panoramas also for that class using the G2.

    I also added the Canon telephoto lense for the G2 but have not used it yet. I am using 256meg flash cards and have not even come close to filling one shooting in RAW mode only.

    In my opinion it is a great "first" digital camera for a serious amateur photographer. My next step will probably be to something like the Canon D60.

    half of photo black at 1/400s - shutter trouble?

    A while ago I purchased an Canon EOS 30D, it has worked absolutely marvelous up until today. I was to shoot some product photos for an ad and I noticed that at shutter speeds higher than 1/300s some shading of the lower part of the picture occurred and above 1/400s it took out most of the image....

    Nikon F100 w/50mm Nikkor (I'm a traditionalist)
    Fuji E900 (small, carry it with me, smallest camera that does raw files)
    Olympus XA (my tiny film camera,...

    Canon settings

    I have a Canon digital photo and I used only automatic settings. I want to learn more about manual settings because it is a different mode to shot the best photos than auto mode, I think. Also, what is the best method, manual or digital zoom? I want to know how to correct in manual mode...
