Now thats even better than:

Canonitis (Noun/Latin Origin)
- To never go the full step you really need to innovate and take over the market.


CameraLabs???? :-\ :-\ :-\

The post is about the CameraStore. LOL

Sorry to hear, but seems consistent with what others are experiencing with the soft images and AF issues

I have used the camera since friday. It is inconsistent in af accuracy. Most pictures are soft. When all hits then the pics are great but for a $700 convience camera it shoukd work better than that. I would like to consider the rx100 but do not like the short focal range and handling. I think the extra bulk and IQ would be better invested in the sony a6000 for the money. At least your carrying apsc sized sensor and hopefully the af can keep up.

Looks good, hopefully the G7X II will surpass the RX100 III:

RX100 III: ESSENTIAL
Ratings (out of 5)

Design    5
Features    5
Ease-of-use    4.5
Image quality    5
Value for money    4

G7X: Highly Recommended
Ratings (out of 5)
Design    5

"In terms of the direct competition, the Canon PowerShot G7 X has definitely made a big leap forwards. Compared to the very popular Sony Cyber-shot RX100 Mk III, it's a very close-run thing, with the lack of a viewfinder (or any way of fitting an external one) on the G7 X being the biggest single reason to choose the Sony model for the keen photographer. If you don't need this feature, then the touchscreen capabilities of the G7 X are very compelling, as is the longer lens range, although the Sony RX100 Mk III's screen can be tilted both up and down. For us, the built-in EVF gives the Sony model the edge, but your mileage may vary according to which features you most value. Both are equally worthy of consideration."


<p>PhotographyBlog has completed their review of the Canon PowerShot G7 X and came away impressed for the most part.</p>

They are biased or do you share that view towards anyone who goes against your own views?

The CameraStore is right on with the comments about both cameras and consistent with other reviews.  The G7X looks good on paper, but Canon was only able to get a longer focal length by cropping the sensor...result ~ distorted WA and 100mm shots.

BTW, welcome to the Canon Rumor Forum.

Cameralabs has their full review up and the camera compared quite sell to the Sony RX100 MIII.  The Canon focuses faster, has more blur in the photos, enjoys the ability to pull focus in videos and compares closely in optical quality beating out the Sony at 50mm, 70mm.  He scores both 89 points.  I'm looking forward to mine.

I thought this site is about Canon cameras and this post is about an early review on the G7X so relax.  I've never heard of Camera Store and after reading the post about those guys being biased I didn't bother to watch it.  Cameralabs is well respected for doing non biased in-depth reviews and he does a straight up comparison between the Canon and the Sony (and LX100 for that matter).  It's comical that people on here can be so persuaded by one video review of this camera from out in left field.  Time will tell once DP Review finishes their comprehensive review but I own this camera and it's doing everything as expected for me which is inline with the review on Cameralabs.  If you don't find another viewpoint relevant to discussing merits of this camera then why are you on here?  Just stop at the first post and move on.

Are these sensor going to be coming from Sony as well?

Yes that's correct, if you wanted a pocketable camera, the dimensions of the RX100 III fits the criteria much better and you get an EVF.  :)


Far easier to fit a Sony RX100 III into a pocket than a Canon G7X

WTF??

Sony RX100-III:   4.0 x 2.3 x 1.6" / 101.6 x 58.1 x 41.0 mm
PowerShot G7 X:  4.1 x 2.4 x 1.6" / 104.1 x 61.0 x 40.6 mm

Far easier?  Care to share whatever it is you're smoking/drinking/injecting that makes you think 2.5mm more width, 1.9mm more height, and 0.4mm less depth makes any sort of significant difference that would mean it's far easier to fit the RX100-III into a pocket than the G7 X?

Ah, the Canon RX10.  First, the Canon RX100 and now this.

Talk about innovation...

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.
