PowerShot / Re: The New Canon PowerShot G7 X
« on: September 13, 2014, 06:51:48 PM »
+1

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!

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???

Is it going to have a 1" sensor?  If not, yawnnnnnnn.

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.

Canon should have given the G1X II a newer sensor.

that the sensor performance is reported to be the same or slightly worse than the G1X sensor is a bit disappointing of course.

http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Canon/PowerShot-G1X

the G1X II sensor is bigger than the sony RX100 sensor, yet shows worse results.

that can´t be explained with an old manufacturing process either.
as some have reported the powershot sensors are produced on a smaller litho process than the DSLR sensors.

i have yet to test the G1X II but from the specs and reports the sony A6000 looks more tempting... for less money too.

More like the level of details revealed reflects the same level of excitement to expect? LOL

Very true, another G1X II scenario again.

I think (but I am not sure...going from memory here) that the S95 is CCD and the S100 on up are CMOS.

I think that's true.  Canon is moving to CMOS on all their higher end point and shoots. 
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.

PowerShot Cameras / Re: Will the G17 have a 1" sensor?
« on: July 29, 2014, 01:54:15 PM »
You are thinking they will just go with a faster lens on the G17.

It sure would be nice to have a larger sensor in the G17 or even S130 to better go up against the RX100 series.


It outperforms Canon only in certain aspects. Not all. Not generally better cam.
I believe G series must be small and cheaper, so if they make G17, it will propably have smaller sensor than 1".

I find it helpful to get feedback from reviews for those that review camera regularly and can compare them among others in their class instead of biased comments from those that don't even own the camera.

As I said, I am not looking to get either.

I was merely pointing out that comments like "it has stunning low-light-capabilities" and "The G1X II would be a no brainer had Canon given the G1X II a modern sensor, as it stands the RX100 III still out performs it" are either bullshit, or don't actually stand up to image comparisons.

But why should we let actual images sway us when we have internet printed reviews that support our preconceived ideas? Enjoy your RX100III.

Well if your looking to buy a camera to shoot solely at 1600, 3200, or 6400, knock yourself out, but don't think that's the norm. 

Be sure to check out there review on the G1X II.  "With a larger sensor and faster lens than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II - which is the Mark II's closest competitor - one would expect vastly superior image quality. As it turns out, that's not the case. The G1 X II's sensor has a high 'noise floor', which is to say that there's a lot of noise and not much detail in the shadows. Thus, if you try to brighten dark areas of a photo, you'll end up with more color noise than you will detail. While using either of the DR Correction tools on the camera do work as advertised, the trade-off is a lot more noise. The point here is that while the G1 X II's sensor is much larger than that of the RX100 II, Sony's much more modern sensor performs much better than the Canon's, to the point where it cancels out that disparity."

Noticed they also gave the G1X II only a Silver rating while the RX100 III received a Gold...interesting.




Guess it all depends what you want, as the article in the link mentions, want the best IQ, then it's the RX100 III.

To each their own....


" if .......... you don't mind losing zoom power and shallow depth-of-field,"

Er, what if you do? And what if you don't want or need 20MP from a P&S?
But if you look at their example images in RAW, particularly at higher iso, that isn't what they actually show. You can lead a horse to water.........

Not saying the RX100III isn't an excellent camera, just that comparison images don't actually agree with the comment. But what do I care, I wouldn't buy either.
