I was out with a friend yesterday at Barmouth in Wales. The weather didn’t really play its part but the cameras still performed wonderfully. The G7X was particularly nice to use (despite the criticisms I might have levelled against it in past blog posts). It was nice to have a pocket camera that I could easily slip in and out of my pocket and I’m growing to realise that Canon got it right in terms of size and usability.
The other feature that I found really useful was the Macro mode. It allowed me to get in close although my back tried to prevent me from doing so. The image you see above was actually shot one handed whilst leaning over a bush. I was able to pick the focus point with my thumb and shoot the image. My other had was hanging on to a tree in case you’re wondering. This also shows me that the image stabilisation is working well as I doubt I could have taken a steady shot otherwise, even with the fast shutter speed.
I also ran the image through my Lenscraft Vintage Colour Collection of presets so I could show a few variations below. I’m running an introductory 50% off offer until the end of September on all my presets. The discount code is 50MEMBER and is open to all Lenscraft subscribers as well as readers of this blog post.
