Getting Started in May

We'll get May started off with some recents shots made with my Canon G1X.  With its almost APS-C sized sensor this compact camera with a built in 28-112mm equivalent lens is a nice carry around option when photography isn't a main priority.

Unlike Canon EF-S lenses, which are used on APS-C sized sensors and have a "field of view" crop factor but are focal lengths as if they covered a full frame sensor, the G1X lens is actually a 15.1-60.4mm lens with the field of view of a 28-112mm full frame lens on a full frame camera. While Canon APS-C cameras have a field of view crop factor of 1.6x with EF or EF-S lenses, the G1X has a crop factor of 1.85x.

The captions will contain shooting data. I will put focal length equivalent figures in the caption for reference. This first shot is from last week.

G1X, 35mm eq., f/5.6, 1/1000 sec., ISO 400

The remainder of the images are from this morning. The last two are 100% crops of different portions of the third image.
