    hello all,

    I just got a new G3 and I am new to Digital photography. I was
    wondering what is the best setting to use and maximize the quality of
    the pictures taken. I am currently using RAW setting and converting
    to TIFF or GIF depending on my needs (Web email etc).

    I noticed that since i have been taking hundreds of pictures that if I
    zoomed at around 4X or so, the quality of the picture deteriorates and
    have seen it with other cameras that are also 4MP remain excellent
    (relatively speaking).


    Also any good web sites for G3 and digital photo newbies?

    Hi, The only thing I would say is that when using any zoom lens you amplify
    any movement of the camera - try using a support such as a nearby wall or
    tree and take a photo at max zoom then take another without using the
    support of the same subject - it will give you a rough idea of how much
    camera wobble happens when you hand hold a camera when zoomed out - the
    optical zoom on the camera shouldn`t be prone to any image deterioration if
    focused corectly and it`s held with adequete support ... regards ... Zol.

  3. Great Camera, I haven't seen the 4x issue myself. What changes in the
    photo?

    As to good sites, you may want to check out...

    photography-on-the.net/forum/

    This site hosts a forum for most Canon Digital Cameras and has a
    specific forum for the G3. A lot of G3 questions and issues are answered
    in the forum. Plus like rpd, the posters are great.

    Happy photo taking..

  4. I don't think you can use smaller than full size image either in RAW.

    In practice, that's not a problem. If you want maximum quality (which
    is probably why you're shooting in RAW, you also don't want the camera
    changing image resolution on you, either up (digital zoom) or down
    (smaller images). You're better off doing this on your computer.
