Oh, I can hear the laughter of your overpriced P&S that isn't half as capable as an old G12. Like flash.
you mean sync speed?
to be honest i could not care less on a P&S and i guess that applies to 90% of the customers.
i don´t have an external flash with me all the time.
and when i know that i will shoot flash i sure don´t grab one of my P&S.
I'm not the only one. David hobby used an old g-series cam for the same reasons. It's a power users camera which the Rx100 is NOT. It's not even comparable to G-series cameras in flexibility.
nobody said your the only one... but you and david are how many percent of the possible buyers?
im a strobist myself but i never used my P&S for that.
strobist setups normaly need time and gear to setup, i don´t do it out of the blue.
oh nice motive..... let´s setup my 3 strobes + umbrellas and stands i carry all day to shoot it with my P&S.
never happend to me.
so when i shoot that stuff i use my DSLR.QuoteAlso, this forum doesn't really cater to the 90% of customers.
exactly.. way to many geeks here.
the majority doesn´t even know what x-sync is.
and so i doubt it´s a big point on their feature list.
What are you on about? Were not comparing DSLRs to P&S's. Were comparing P&S to P&S and the G-series cams have an advantage of being flexible. I'd take my G15 over a Rx100 anyday for what I do. Small light kits with High Sync speeds means I don't have to ND my SLR, I don't have to carry my SLR, I don't have to take as big as lights as with my SLR.
Your not seeing the potential if this G1x II has an electronic shutter.
