“Spent a few hours around Pier 39 San Francisco with Canon’s latest G1x point and shoot camera. All the footage here is done with the Canon G1x only. I attempted to make the footage look like Old San Francisco using Cinegrain.com film scans and boosted saturation and contrast.
Lots of aliasing and moire, but very impressed with the sharpness this camera captures. The G1x does not have FULL MANUAL Video controls, but the exposure can be locked before hitting the record button. After the exposure is locked, you can adjust exposure compensation if you’re trying to keep highlights or shadows.
I want to like this camera, but the price just doesn’t cut it. She’ll be heading back to the store next week. More information at cheesycam.com/canon-g1x-test-video-san-francisco-scenery/”
