Ah, sorry, I've been playing around with printing multiple frames (two,
three, or four) as a series--like a triptych--.  Didn't make that clear
enough.  You're quite right about the G. I could do it, and I *have* done
it, merely by pressing the shutter release on the G2.  But I was shooting
perhaps a meter or so away from the faces of two performing musicians.  The
G is *noisy*, as would be an M motor.  That's all.  The rapidwinder is
*very* quiet., and, in this context, the *rapidity* and the comparative
silence mattered.

For what it's worth, I *really* like the G1 and G2, and use them a *lot*.
Or, to put it another way: my mom used to say that she loved *all* her
children equally.
