PowerShot / Re: Official: Canon PowerShot G7 X

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

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?!! ;-)

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.


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?

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.

PowerShot / Re: Three New PowerShot Cameras Coming Shortly
« on: September 12, 2014, 02:59:41 PM »
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".
