PowerShot / Re: The New Canon PowerShot G7 X

Far easier to fit a Sony RX100 III into a pocket than a Canon G7X, but if your talking about the LX100, then compare it to the G1X II at  4.6 x 2.6 x 2.9 inches which is more an appropriate competitor given the sensor size and features.

EOS-M??? Do they still make those things?

Dimension of G7X: 103 x 60 x 40 mm (4.06 x 2.36 x 1.57″)
Dimension o fLX100: 115 x 66 x 55mm
That makes the LX100 even less pocketable than the EOS-M with 22mm lens.

Maybe the G9X will address the shortcomings of the G7X?


Does seem to be aimed directly at the Sony RX100 family, but like many others beforehand I would have liked EVF.

Even Sony realised their mistake by selling the EVF as an extra on the Mark II only to incorporate one (very cleverly) into the Mark III.

The video on this seems to be lacking as well, when compared to the Sony RX100 Mark III.

For Canon users, the main advantage to not buying Sony as a pocketable camera, is the menu system. I guess Canon uses a similar system on these smaller cameras as they do on their DSLRs?

When it comes out I will definitely go and take a look, but I do not have the same expectations or excitement as I did when I first saw the RX100 Mark III.

I doubt Sony are worried, which is a shame. How long is it until the RX100 Mark IV comes out?!! ;-)

But the RX100 III has smaller dimensions than the larger G7X?????

LX100 competes with the G1X given the advanced features and much larger sensor doesn't it?

Once again, too late to the game as the field has already changed.  LX100 is the new authority...anything less than Four Thirds sensor, no thanks

If the G7 X has the S120 form factor, it will fit in a jeans pocket.  Is that true of the LX100?

This reminds me when Isuzu produced the Rodeo SUV which sold very well.  Honda was scrambling desperately for an SUV at the time for that was the market.  So Honda turned to Isuzu to rebadge the Rodeo and sell it through Honda dealerships as the Passport.  Some consumers fell for it and the worst was several publications that do annual auto surveys, people actually rated the Passport higher in quality simply cause it was a Honda.

Seems Canon is having a similar dilemma....

Can you spot the Canon model below?


Same size as the RX100II, a Canon first for a P&S with a top sensor. Nice.

Weight 50% more than RX100II, not nice at all, but the lens is much faster at the long end which is very nice. So a pick your poison, faster lens or deal with a bit more weight.

Seems like there is now a viable RX100 alternative.

I wonder if the UI is a bit nicer than on the RX100?

Sure.  Guess its up to each buyer to decide what is best for them.


Wow this looks like an awesome compact camera from Canon. I'm actually a little bit interested.

That Panasonic LX-100 also looks tempting. Exciting times! ;D

It's the Canon Me2 camera. LOL

Some innovation would have been asking to much I guess.  Would take the RX100 III any day over a fake wanna be GwannaB X

Not sure, but I wouldn't care about stuffing a camera in my pocket.  Given the smaller sensor, lack of EVF, lack of Hotshoe, lack of 4K, etc. I wouldn't know or care as the Four Thirds camera offers superior IQ.

well, no winner. too late. Should have come out with that thing 2 years ago instead of stupid Powershot S 100/110/120 and instead of also stupid G1 X/II 

+
at least a 1" sensor
fast lens, useful focal length range
built in fill flash
WiFi + NFC built in ... but not in much bigger 7D II ... so incredibly and utterly ridiculous!
Control Ring ... yes, yes yes (if fully user assignable)
Touch LCD

-
no APS-C sensor
no top-notch EVF
price (whatever it is, it will be way too high)
not Retina/hi Res LCD, only 640x480

=
no buy, as far as I am concerned

Anything more than $550 isn't worth the money.  Better value on the RX100 II or III.

Hmmm.  Maybe it is time to upgrade my G6!  Well, when I want something small I've got my M.  And, my wife is VERY happy with her RX1000iii 'cause she really wanted a viewfinder.

It's too early to tell, but I doubt this will out perform your RX100 III. The EVF is a nice feature to shoot outdoor. The price remains primary factor for these two. I don't see how Canon would priced at $800ish. If it around $600ish and MUST BE pocketable then Canon has upper hand.

EVF? Or Hotshoe, 4K, or something.

Seems like something from 2012. LOL

Sorry Canon YAWN.

Nice, but where is the EVF???

Well, it cannot compete against the LX100 as the sensor in the G7X is too small.

Please Canon, DON'T pull another G1X II with a horrific sensor nor a S120 with a slow lens.

For it to be competitive, it needs to have a 1.8-2.8 lens or faster.


I'm really looking forward to that G7X. Let's see how it competes with RX100III and LX100...  ::)

And your basing your information on what source???

50:50 chance the rumor is wrong and it´s a 2/3 inch sensor.

Any specs as of yet?

<p>We’re told by a very good source that Canon will announce a new PowerShot camera with a 1″ sensor. The camera will be nearly as compact as the S series camera and is intended to compete with Sony’s RX100.</p>
<p>No specs were given.</p>

Very true.  Just look at the RX100 III (scored 67) outperforms the G1X II (scored 58).

Here's the problem:  It will probably have a Canon-made sensor.  Sony's 1" sensor already outperforms the much larger sensor in the G1X ii.
