#roadtophotokina5 – our photo walk series

The first G I encountered was the G9 and at that time I hadn’t seen or used no other camera like it. Price, features, quality size were basically unmatched. The next one I remember really hearing of was the G11. I know there was a G1X something and so on. Times have changed a lot since 2007. Mobile phones have been slashing at the small camera market…
