Thanks for sharing your experience. I decided to go with G1 too that seems to have some features more suitable for my needs than 450D, which is a superb camera though. It is scheduled to arrive on Monday. So once I have it in my hands, I'll have more idea on ways of getting the best outputs it's capable of delivering.


you sound like you know what you're talking about so I'm sure it would be very much appreciated if you would share your findings! :D

I've had my G1 for about a month now. I do have to agree that the "out of the box" JPEG's are incredibly soft.

I know Gordon mentioned sharpening the pictures using the "in camera" options. However, you cannot apply these to the "IA" option, only the programmable choices.

The pictures however do look great using RAW and viewed through PHOTOfunSTUDIO. However, I still think that the converted images (using Silkypix) look soft when viewed in Windows Media Player (Gallery) as JPEG's.

Now I've a couple of questions that I'm hoping someone can help me with. Does anyone know whether Windows Media Player does show pictures softer than alternative photo viewing software? Secondly, is there anyway to change this?

My gripe is this. If I convert my photos from RAW to JPEG's, they look fine through PHOTOfunSTUDIO but not in Windows Media Player. If I send any of my pictures to friends/colleagues, they invariably using Windows Media Player and thus don't get the full affect of the G1's quality. Yet, if I oversharpen the images to look half decent in Windows, the pictures look over sharpened using Irfanview/PHOTOfunSTUDIO etc etc ...

I feel like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place! Anyone got any suggestions?
