Maybe they have a new model coming out in a few months.
I quite like the G series cameras they are one of the better models in this price bracket. Never had a lot of interest in the LX and S models

Rice fields are very photogenic with all of the graphic lines. I like the rain soaked leaves as well. We are just entering our rainy season here in the UK. It's called the summer .
Birma wrote:We're supposed to be in our driest season now Henry, but for the last few years we have had cooler, wetter summers. The Meteorologists here had a conference earlier in the year and decided that we are going through a cyclic phenomenon where warmer water in the North Atlantic causes cool wet summers here for 10-16 years! We might be 6 years in to this cycle which last happened in the 1950-60s and before that 1880s. Umbrellas and rain coats are required at all times of year .

Birma wrote:There is a chance of rain all year around. Typically the Late Spring, Summer and Early Fall (Autumn) are drier, but this has changed in the last few years. Last year was one of the wettest on record in the south of the UK. I think one of the reasons that people in the UK talk about the weather all of the time is that it is so unpredictable and changeable.

bakubo wrote:A few years ago I lived part-time in Vancouver, British Columbia for several years. Generally, they get about 9 months of almost daily rain. Summer is beautiful, but the summer is sometimes as short as 2 months. I think it was 2003 when we had a 4 month summer! The TV news and newspapers kept remarking that summer about how amazing that it was lasting so long. I think it was in 2005 when we had a summer that was only 2 months or slightly less. I also remember that Tim Horton's (donut and coffee chain) had a funny TV ad one year late in the summer that ran often. A young woman was walking along the sidewalk and suddenly she lets out this blood curdling scream and has this look of total horror on her face. The camera then looks down at the sidewalk and there is a single red and yellow leaf. It made her realize that the short summer was ending. Anyway, Canadians often would comment about their poor weather, but I would always tell them that all that rain made everything so lush and green. I assume it is the same where you are.

bakubo wrote:The G12 had an articulating LCD, but the G15 does not. I am rather happy about this change because I rarely use the tilt/swivel LCD of my other cameras and for a carry everywhere camera I value the size/weight savings much more than the tilt/swivel convenience for the rare times I would use it on this sort of camera.
For a carry everywhere camera when I am out and about going through normal life I want something that is all self-contained (lens, flash, lens cover) and that is small and flat enough that I can put it in a jacket pocket or cargo shorts pocket.

Directly in front of you while standing at the urinals is this window that allows you to take a leak while looking down at the train platform and train tracks. What I want to know is what these guys are looking at????
