Canon PowerShot G1 X Digital Camera Review$799.99
Effects, Filters, and Scene modes
The G1 X comes with 14 preset scene modes, varying from mainstays like Portrait and Landscape, to the very useful High-speed Burst HQ mode, to fun extras like Movie Digest and Stitch Assist. Scene modes get their own dedicated position on the mode dial, so these techniques are always close at hand.
Picture effects also get their own stop on the mode dial, and these produce zanier images, with choices like Fish-eye, Miniature Effect, Color Accent, and Poster Effect. This mode is also home to the HDR shooting option.
Lens Accessory Adapter
Surrounding the lens barrel is what looks like a twisting manual ring...but it's not. This is actually a metal placeholder for optional accessories such as a teleconverter. The ring is easily removed via a mechanical release on the front panel, but we left it on in the hopes of providing a measure of protection for our lens assembly.
