Canon Powershot G7

I bought my Canon G7 in April of 2007 upon the recommendation of a friend who lives in California & also shoots with a Canon 5D. He highly recommended this camera & to this day, he still uses his. My G7 does a Great job for what I got it for, (that is a small camera to take into restaurants & some parties/gatherings when I don't want to take along my DSLR),but it has given me a couple of minor(but quite aggravating) problems, which were fixed - the first time under warranty from Canon & the 2nd time, it cost me $159.00 to get it repaired.
Today, January 2, 2013 I took delivery of the New Canon Powershot G15. Please note, I AM keeping the G7. Why, you may ask? Because:
#1. It is solid & built like a Rock & they don't make them anymore
#2. I may have to loan it out to someone in our family should they need a good pocket camera.
#3. It's paid for & it works.
I have found that these are the settings I use:
When shooting outdoors on a very nice, sunny day, I set the camera to 'P' for Positive mode(it emulates slide film, & the ISO is at 80 or 100. For indoor shots & people, I set the camera to 'Neutral' as I have found that this gives the Best results, even indoors under flourescent lighting & when using No flash. While on the subject of flash, I have made a few test shots indoors with my Canon 430EX flash & it does a great job, although it is too large. I may someday buy the New Canon 270EX II flash, which is much smaller & would tend to be a better fit, so to speak.
