If you own a G12, you know that it has two spots on the top dial for storing "custom" settings. I like to take pictures of the sky, so after some research, I cooked up my own secret recipe for sky photos that I dutifully stored in C2. My wife and I take the dogs for a walk a couple of days ago, and beautiful clouds were doing their thing overhead. I switched on the G12, selected G2, and took a photo. A bit later we stopped by a pond that I have photographed many times. I was struck that most of the ice had melted, but a couple of ducks were standing on submerged ice so that it appeared they were walking on water. I selected the "landscape" mode on the Scenes menu and took a couple of shots. I forget to switch back to G2 and snapped a few more pix of clouds on our stroll. When I pulled the pictures up on my computer monitor, the truth was apparent: the lanscape mode worked better for sky photography than my secret recipe! Darn camera . . . now I just might have to try a couple of those other pre-canned modes . . .
