Canon PowerShot G1 X Sample Pictures

Canon PowerShot G1 X Sample Pictures
Swamp Love Swamp Love
Some of the best trip pictures require you to simply take the effort to stop and take the shot. While traveling in the Florida Everglades, I came across this Swamp Love mural painted on the side of a small store. With the PowerShot G1 X in the rental SUV console, I simply pulled in and took the picture. This shot turned out to be one of my favorites from this trip - and was well worth the small inconvenience of stopping. Especially with the extremely convenient G1 X by my side.
 
28mm  f/8.0  1/30s  ISO 100
Corkscrew Swamp Wildlife Refuge Corkscrew Swamp Wildlife Refuge
I carried a Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III and EF 300mm f/2.8 L IS II USM II Lens through Corkscrew Swamp Wildlife Refuge, but fortunately had the small Canon PowerShot G1 X with me for some interesting scenery shots along the way - including the lichens-covered boardwalk.
 
Corkscrew Swamp Wildlife Refuge is a great place to visit. Painted Buntings, Little Blue Herons, Egrets, Alligators of all sizes, a Cottonmouth Water Moccasin and more landed on my "what I saw list" during my short visit.

Pennsylvania Wilds Barn Pennsylvania Wilds Barn
This is another of those pull-over-and-take-the-shot pictures that the Canon PowerShot G1 X is so convenient for. I minimalized the clear blue sky (leaving only a comfortable border of it) while emphasizing the wild phlox in the foreground.
 
28mm  f/8.0  1/125s  ISO 100
Worlds End State Park Ferns Worlds End State Park Ferns
Bright green ferns glow in the sun against a deep shade background only the road in Worlds End State Park near Forksville, PA . This is another example of a capture I made by simply stopping the car and grabbing the Canon PowerShot G1 X that was beside me.
 
80mm  f/8.0  1/125s  ISO 100
Captiva Island Sunset Captiva Island Sunset
It is a lot easier to get up early enough for a west coast sunset than those eastern ones. Here the sun sets over the Gulf of Mexico as seen from Captiva Island, Florida. This composition is an easy one. Level the camera with the sun about 1/3 of the way into the frame and allow horizontal rows of color to run through the frame - starting with the dark sand as the base.
 
112mm  f/8.0  1/400s  ISO 400
Air Boat Pilot at the Controls Air Boat Pilot at the Controls
Air boat rides can be wet (especially with an inexperienced pilot at the controls), but I still wanted quality memory shots of the ride. So, I chose to leave the expensive DSLRs behind and carried the PowerShot G1 X with me. The G1 X did a fine job of capturing the memories. Fortunately, they didn't let this young pilot actually fly the boat.
 
28mm  f/8.0  1/400s  ISO 100
Colonel Denning State Park Drain Pipe Colonel Denning State Park Drain Pipe
I had just finished a trail run at Colonel Denning State Park and was exploring the area around the lake and parking lots. I had the compact G1 X with me. Thanks to the camera's Hybrid IS, I was able to handhold this 1/5 sec water motion-blurred image.
 
28mm  f/5.6  1/5s  ISO 100
Manatee Area Caution Sign Manatee Area Caution Sign
I got a better picture of the Manatee area caution sign than I did of the many Manatees we saw in Florida. I was carrying the Canon EOS 1Ds III and Canon EF 300mm f/2.8 L IS II USM Lens as my primary camera at this moment. Having the small PowerShot G1 X with me allowed this capture.
