Great post VF. You can get instruction on just about anything these days on YouTube. A friend of mine who does commercial work uses that set up a lot but with a reflector on the opposite (dark) side for a little fill. He comes up with some dramatic looking stuff. I tried a 3-light set up recently just for some family portraits. With the D800 I have been obsessed with detail and sharpness. The lesson I learned is that detail is not always a good thing with portraits--every skin blemish and imperfetion my kids have showed up crisp and clear. Plus with the aperature I was using, I had too much depth of field. The background needed to be much softer. Oh well. That's why we practice these things (and post process in Photoshop!).

can't believe (oh wait, it's canon) they already have a G15, G1X isn't even half a year old!!!

I think the G1x was a step outside the regular G series line--not a true replacement for the G12. It was a response to the mirrorless camera craze and the push toward larger sensors. It has great image quality, but it doesn't do some of the stuff the the G's were known for. It's bigger and it can't focus close. Now with the G15 they have moved in a different direction. It's more of a G12 replacement, however the fold-out LCD screen is gone in order to slim it to a more pocket-friendly size. They also dumped the handy ISO wheel. It's funny, how whenever a new camera comes out it's a give and take. They make improvements, but then take away some good features too.
