Canon E1CNPSG7XMIIISL First Impressions

"A good buy in my book."

Simple to figure out how to use, even for beginning photographers. Some people even claim that the Canon E1CNPSG7XMIIISL rivals medium format quality. I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. Manual focus would've been nice. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it.

Canon E1CNPSG7XMIIISL Final Thoughts

"Husband loves this Canon E1CNPSG7XMIIISL."

Just ordered my soft box lights. I needed a Streaming Point & Shoot Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone. 5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. It is easy to use and takes clear pictures. Maybe it is for a small POS.

"That is a bargain."

Every thing was fine except I would have liked a better memory card. Full manual, Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority. Simple to figure out how to use, even for beginning photographers. This is great because my mother likes the viewfinder and I like the LCD. Maybe it is for a small POS.

"It's range is awesome."

Looking forward to seeing how the weight savings impact my hikes and travel. The lens adapter works seamlessly with no performance penalty. Love the small compact size which will be perfect for traveling. However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use. The recommended solution is to send in the camera for cleaning.

"An AMAZING DEAL!"

PHOTO4LESS Canon G7 X Mark III (Black) Final Thoughts

"So, not real."

Or, you can select all-manual, if you want to set everything yourself. Plus I have various DSLRs and a beautiful PHOTO4LESS. So glad I chose the PHOTO4LESS Canon G7 X Mark III (Black). The lens adapter works seamlessly with no performance penalty. Where this PHOTO4LESS Canon G7 X Mark III (Black) really shines though is the video recording oddly enough.

Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over. I was pretty skeptical buying another point and shoot.

"So far I like it a lot."

For me the upgrade was worth it as it had things I find extremely useful. After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed. With a prime lens, zoom is one less thing you worry about. I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually. It took me a while to figure it out.

The stability at long zoom was fantastic. The Canon 8191B001 is small and fast. The image I've shared was taken from over 15 feet away with just the optical zoom. Takes great low light & fireworks pictures. Me and my husband have planned a trip to Bahamas.

Excellent two characteristics in a Streaming Point & Shoot Digital Camera. It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image.
