    A few snaps with my new G10

    Finally the rain stopped and I was able to get out with the G10. I have to say, I'm really loving this camera! I took about 100 shots but have only processed a few so far.

    Tallahassee "Downtown Market" is home to produce vendors as well as arts and crafts people selling their wares. Only open on Saturdays.

    Around the block from the market are buildings in a mix of different architectural styles, some are mundane, and a few are rather interesting. The 28mm end of the G10's zoom was handy.

    These were all shot in RAW, and converted in DPP. Colors seem spot on right out of the camera, only adjustments I made were a little curves/contrast and some sharpening on the downsized images. Very pleased with the IQ, caveat - I haven't done anything with high ISO's yet.

    Thanks for taking a look
    Regards,
    Joan

    Thanks, Helen!
    Tried to upload a few more, but I keep getting an error message, something about security.

    OK, maybe if I try one at a time?

    Dale and Terry, thank you, it is a FUN camera to use. Processing with DPP is a pain, but I'm sure it's just a matter of time before updates will come along for LightZone and Aperture. Then I will really go to town! ;-)

    Thanks, Cindy. We were posting at the same time. I'm having trouble uploading here, so will have to resort to using pBase.

    Re: A few snaps with my new G10

    Hi Joan,
    image quality looks very nice. At the moment I'm testing the G-10 and the Nikon P-6000, but my DDP (3.4.1.1) refuses to open G-10 RAW files. (the P-6000 is supported in ACR, but alas not the G-10 yet). Which version of the DPP are you using?

    Re: A few snaps with my new G10

    Hi Arne, I am using DPP 3.5 which came with the camera. AFAIK, the only other RAW converter that currently opens the G10's files is Raw Photo Processor for Mac. It's freeware, so I downloaded and gave it a try, but it doesn't seem quite right, colors are WAY off.
    Regards,
    Joan

    Joan looking really nice. Joan I would love to try and open a raw in C1 Pro and see if it works. If you would like here is what to do . Go to www.yousendit.com than send a raw file to yourself. Than just post a link here to the download. Thanks

    Re: A few snaps with my new G10

    Thanks, Amin. I have to get the hang of processing these huge files, but at least as an outdoor camera, I think the G10 has a lot of promise. jpegs are pretty "smudgy" in the shadows, but raw looks MUCH better.

    OK, Guy, I'll give it a try, but don't be surprised if it doesn't open. Canon changed the raw format for the G10 for some inexplicable reason and people are griping about the lack of support so far.

    Here's the downsized version of the file I'll put up there:

    Hi Mike, it's jacket or cargo pants pocketable, but not "regular" pocketable. I think it's quite a bit larger than the DP1.

    Here's the link to the raw file:

    http://www.yousendit.com/download/Y2...UnFQb0pFQlE9PQ


    IMO, the best way to enjoy the G10 is to view the files at 50% size, not 100%, then any imperfections magically disappear. I'm going to try shooting some jpegs at reduced resolution equal to about 9Mp and see how they look.

    Joan

    Yikes no go in C1 nor ACR. Oh well worth a try, guess we have to wait for updates in both programs.

    Re: A few snaps with my new G10

    Yep, that's what I figured. LightZone opens the files but they look like negative version, really WILD!

    OK, I must be stupid ... I can't seem to get proper 100% crops out of DPP. I thought I should output at 72dpi, but that doesn't seem to give me the right size to view on the web at 100%. What am I doing wrong?

    Joan

    That's kind of tough for me to say yet. I only used evaluative metering yesterday and did manage to blow a lot of highlights, but it was a very bright day and I was out from about 11:30am to 1:30pm, the worst possible time to take pictures. Properly exposed shots seem very good though.

    Re: A few snaps with my new G10

    Joan I have to pay you a compliment. Since you joined this forum several months ago and let's be honest a little green behind the ears You have really grown quite a bit with your photography and i mean that with the highest praise. You really seem to be understanding and improving significantly. I hope being here with other members and learning from them is at least part of that success. Certainly would make this forum a valid place to hang out and what it's mantra is. A place to learn.

    No blushing allowed i really mean this.

    Hi Joan, thanks, I just looked at Canon's download page and version 3,5 isn't available for downloading yet. So I'll have to open the SW package after all

    Wow, Guy, THANK YOU, so much! Green behind the ears is an understatement, I have a L-O-O-O-N-G way to go yet but I am starting to learn, and getDPI is definitely a big help. You've created a wonderful learning and chatting environment here, and I really appreciate how kind and helpful everyone is.


    Yep, Arne, guess you'll have to crack open the CD if you want to play with raw right away, which stinks as it's a frustrating program to use (at least for me).
    Regards,
    Joan
