G1X: Rainy Day

OS Rain

Although hoping for a beautiful sunset, water and beach scene, I was determined to take a picture of something and this was the best I could do.  Actually, I like it and have added it to my G1X collection at Smugmug.

This picture was taken at ISO 200, 1/15 second and f4.5 at a mid-zoom focal length.  The G1X was in manual focus mode at minimum focus distance – roughly 15 inches or so.  Although I could have elected to increase the ISO setting, I decided instead to brace the camera against the car seat and accept the 1/15 second shutter speed.

Hello Gordon,
As I probably won't use video, would you recommend the G9 or the G12 for general ease of use (novice) and wide angle? Thanks for your assistance and helpful blogs. Lisa

I recommend the G12 over the G9. I have both and rarely used the G9 after getting the G12.
