"You can’t get really good photos using them..."

By Tom Svensson, Tuesday March 07, 2017
To capture birds remotely I used the WiFi in the camera along with the Canon Camera Connect app on my smartphone and waited and waited! People should use this great feature to play around with! Taken remotely using the PowerShot G5 X.

I sometimes hear this statement by photographers, referring to compact cameras, and I must say I disagree. These modern compacts are so good you can really get loads out of them. So I decided on my latest holiday to try out the PowerShot G5 X.

Can I get nice landscape photos? Can I get some fun animal photos? I started out by taking some landscapes and that turned out to be rather easy; it really was so simple to work with and I did find that the quality of the image files was really good out of camera! So don’t worry about that when bringing a smaller camera.

The next project was to get some animals photos out of it and here I thought it would be very hard but it turned out to be rather easy! Since the camera has WiFi, you can shoot that way using the camera in remote via the Canon Camera Connect app. And I must say remote is so fun to use and I could get very different photos of birds than I would have done had I only used my DSLR.

So if you are on holiday or on a short trip and don’t want to carry all the big gear with you, don’t worry! Just bring one of these compacts and you can do almost everything you can with the big gear! Remember: the best camera in the world is the one you have in your hand when the moment happens – and that it says Canon on it ;-)

One more test on landscapes but then there is always something that wants to be in the photo ;-) Taken remotely using the PowerShot G5 X.
