This is a great (old) video of professional photographer Gary Knight sets up his Canon G10 (now G12) as a street photography camera.
He adds a hotshot 35mm viewfinder
He presets the zoom lens to 35mm and locks it there
He sets ISO to 200 or 400 (film speeds he’s used to)
He saves all of those settings so he can return to them easily.
I love the G series ergonomics and I’ve not considered adding an external viewfinder to make up for Canon’s useless built in viewfinder. I do make various settings on my S100 (and have on all of my Canon cameras) that I return to easily because they’re saved.
It’s great to see a professional photojournalist using this type of camera instead of a Leica or a big DSLR kit.
