Last night while over at the studio doing a bit of organization, I took Elisabeth away from her homework for a few minutes to do a couple test shots with the G11. As I have previously said, one reason I like the G series of point-n-shoot cameras from Canon is the dedicated hot shoe. In addition to its ability to sync with my Speedlight flashes, it can easily work with my studio lighting.
For this shot, I set up a few softboxes and then simply eyeballed the exposure using the G11’s histogram. It took a couple shots before I landed on the settings used for this image.
I have got to say that I continue to be impressed by the capabilities of this little camera. Look for a more detailed write-up about it soon.
