I reset my Canon G9 camera to factory defaults, and it’s no longer lagging between shots. That’s a relief, and means I can get several more years of use out of it. 📸

My 12-year old Canon G9 is slowing down. It takes several seconds to process each shot, which made photographing animals at Longleat a challenge. I’ll use it for still life stuff until it gives up the ghost, but I think I’ll be using my iPhone SE as my primary camera now.

Soon, it won’t be surprising to have everyday (not just high-end) phones with three to five lens modules that do everything from wide-angle photography to longer aperture telephotos from a single device. With software improvements coming in thick and fast, I expect this will be the new reality within 24 months.
