A Saturday morning dive – CANON PowerShot G-12

Yesterday I published some pictures of our Saturday underwater stroll. I acquired pretty motivating feedback and you requested loads of thoughts.

You requested me about my gear. It is a CANON PowerShot G-12. Regretably Canon discontinued the creation of this excellent digital camera. Allow me to inform you a limited story.
I begun in the late 1960’s with a Minolta SRT-101. This digicam survived my wild yrs. Even a single year of sands in the Sahara couldn’t ruin this mechanical question. In early 2000 I switched to the Canon collection of electronic cameras. I kept my Minolta lenses and nevertheless use them in some cases on my SONY Alpha. But my preferred camera is the CANON PowerShot G-12.

Early this 12 months my CANON PowerShot G-12 stopped operating with a “LENS ERROR” ? . This is a pretty typical challenge of this camera. I inquired for repair service opportunities. In the Philippines it is simply just extremely hard. Just one can ship the digicam to a mend heart in Malaysia or Japan, but every person on the World-wide-web states that it is much more highly-priced than a new camera.

I then had a look on auction platforms and identified 2 delivers on “ricardo.ch”. As an auction newbie I skipped the first auction. But the next one I received!  ? It had not only been the camera but also an underwater housing. Below it is, my new products:
