While I own a full frame Canon 5D Mark III camera, I have been thinking of getting a second camera but a point and shoot type. My 5D is great but is heavy like many DSLRs and with my back problems, carrying around a heavy camera and bag is not helping. Sometimes I just need a camera small and lightweight that I can through into my pocket. I do find that most of the time I am out at the park or riding the bike trail, all I really need is a lightweight small camera.
Canon has come out with two such cameras, G7 X Mark III and G5 X Mark II. The G7 X Mark III, the cheaper of the two, does not have a viewfinder something I am use to having. And it seems more for the vlogger for which I am not. The G5 X Mark II seems to be for the photographer which probably explains why it is the only one of the two that has a pop up viewfinder but it costs a little more than the G7. While I have a iPhone, camera phones in my opinion just can't match the abilities and quality of a camera with an actually zoom lens.
Once again, a little combination of photography and art using a photo I took from this year's Pelotonia 2019. First, taking a photo into Corel Painter 2020 and using the auto painting feature and using a impressionist style brush. Then, taking what was created and opening into Affinity Photo. There I blend the art and the photo together and added a texture to complete the work.
Pelotonia 2019 was this past weekend in central Ohio and I got out and shot several hundreds of photos during the weekend event on Saturday. Check out my Pelotonia 2019 gallery on SmugMug! As I slowly make through all the shots, I will be adding more to the gallery.
