Third Party Manufacturers / Re: G12 Successor Preview
« on: August 22, 2012, 06:06:40 PM »
Even if Canon brings out the G12 successor, the P7700 now has the edge and Canon will need to at least match or beat what Nikon has done.

The RX100 is very enticing, but the P7700 is even more interesting at this point if you can deal with the size difference.

With Sony's Clear Image Zoom of 7.2x, the lens and zoom comparision kind of becomes mute.

Then you compare the sizes and keep in mind the RX100 still has a sensor about 3 times the size of the P7700:

This has got me thinking. If this P7700 is due by late September it might be a kick in the pants for Canon to release any G12 successor they might have up their sleeves just in case Nikon steals their thunder!
 
As far as I am concerned this is a definite G12 beater, lighter body, brighter lens, better sensor, zoom could have begun at 24mm and been shorter at the long end. I think it's going to be a tough cookie to beat if Canon doesn't bring out a G13/14 by Photokina
and make it available before the 27th of September when the Nikon 7700 goes on sale!

Agree.  I can see Canon doing the exact same with the G12 successor, faster lens, a little more zoom and a CMOS sensor.



Actually it looks very much like a G12 successor even to the vari angle screen.

So the Nikon P7200 successor has been announced.  Still the same size sensor, but the removal of the viewfinder and changed from a CCD to CMOS sensor plus the change to a zoom 28mm-200mm F2-4 in 35mm.

Is this likely the same we will see with the G12 successor?

49
No.  The G1X is a completely different line; it is NOT the G12 successor.

Where's the successor to the G12?

Did you miss the G1 X announcement?  :P

Are you referring to the one today for the Canon Officially Announces the PowerShot SX160 IS & SX500 IS?


Is Canon announcing something Aug 22?


The RX 100 is more expensive but it does have a larger more advanced sensor and therefore would produce a higher IQ. If I were you I'd wait untill the 22nd to see what Canon has up their sleeves next, or at least until Photokina on the 18th of September to see if there's an update on the S100. In the meantime you can save up some cash in case they announce something really tasty like a G13. If they don't I'll be going for the RX100 it gets such good reviews.

Apparently rumour has it that there will be an Powershot announcement on the 22nd of August we have no idea what it will be.

G1X is pocketable?

I don't see this as a G1X replacement, but rather a higher model in the line. The G1X is the ultimate "pocketable" camera, while the Pro X is the ultimate all-in-one travel cam.

On the RX100, think you are referring to Clear Zoom which automatically gives it 7.1x and something like 10x if you drop it to 10mp.  This is non digital.

As for the Nikon, seems like it will hopefully be a whole new camera with a 1" sensor instead of the current 1/1.7" which is in the G12, P7100, and S100.


I'll be very interested to see what Nikon do with the 7200 as the sensor on the 7100 did not get rave reviews. If it's not better that the G12 and there's no G12 replacement in the shops by mid September I can see myself being tempted by the RX100 as if you drop the pixels from 20mp to 10mp apparently it increases the zoom range from 3.6 to 5.1x . I only just discovered that little tip. Better a camera with at least 5x zoom and 10mp than 20mp and only 3.6 zoom.

So thanks for the news, I'll be watching with baited breath.

Its either the P7200 or another new line in the Coolpix lineup.  Suppose to be announced on the 22nd; a larger sensor compact.

Could definitely see a faster lens (something like the X10 would be ideal) and a newer sensor.

I don't see Canon dropping the lens to ƒ1.9 in the G12 successor, but more like the S100 successor.

Are you following the Nikon announcement?



You are probably correct in saying that the next Gxx wont have a bigger sensor in order not to cannibalise sales of the G1X but they might replace the current sensor with a cmos or more advanced type of sensor. The other thing they might do is introduce a better lens, we still have not seen the hinted at camera with an ƒ1.9 lens they could also introduce a 24mm to 150mm, 6x or greater zoom?

My final comment for the moment is that they could reduce the number of physical controls and make the screen a touch screen as on the new EOS-M making the design sleeker and perhaps even lighter?
What Nikon announcement? A successor to the G12 and the RX100?

Thanks for the feedback.  Forgot to also include the RX100 though it is a bit pricier than I wanted to pay.  Above all, looking for a quality camera that will work best of them all in Auto mode and cover a wide range of shooting.

Unless I plan on doing large enlargements, would there be much difference in IQ noticeable?


Totally different cameras, SX260 small sensor, S100 larger sensor.
Go to a camera store and try them, they is going to be a  difference in feel and the controls. 
The SX260 has a long zoom range, built-in GPS, but slow autofocus and not so good high ISO performance. 
The S100 has better performance, but a shorter zoom range and no GPS.  Tradeoff to get the features you prefer.  You are going to like either if you buy it for its strong points, and if it feels comfortable to you.

The G12 successor will likely be in its current orm, larger than RX100 and not pocket size which is the purpose of the S series. MAs for sensor size, I don't see Canon jeopardizing the G1X but going anything larger than its current 1/1.7".

Next week we sold hear from Nikon which is suppose to announce a largers sensor compact to either replace the P7100 r spinoff a new line.

Understandable, here is hoping Canon steps up its game in the S100 successor, otherwise the pocket camera of the year will be the RX100.


Yes you are right. I am thinking of the Sony  RX100.

It would be a great pity if I lashed out £500 more in desperation than in common sense, on an RX100 only to find later that Canon trumps it with a genuine successor to the G12 :(

59
Besides the Canon G series, would you consider the S series?

Interesting reading. Especially as I am stuck in the need to get a new camera to travel with, within the month. The G11 has reached the end of it's useful life for me, there's no point in buying a G12 if there's a suspected G13/14 on the horizon. I'd kick myself silly if while waiting for the Gxx to come along I settled for the G12. So I have been looking around, like many I have a good dslr an Oly E410 with kit lenses and a great 12 -60mm Zuiko lens but it's too heavy for me to travel with (no silly remarks please).

The Canon EOS M wont be available until mid October when I will already be away. So what do I get in the meantime. No excuses that it's for the wife, it's for me. My wife never touches a camera unless I put it in her hands.

Anyway I dont want to travel with loads of lenses and so the RX100 looks very tasty to me too, I looked around for competition I couldn't see anything near it. Pity about the restricted zoom but it does seem to get good write ups around the groups. let's face it I wouldn't even be talking Sony if Canon got their act together and announced the G13 or 14 or whatever they or going to call it, bet they announce it at Photokina available........ xmas! Just like the EOS M announced recently not available till mid October, is that just to get us salivating or to make sure we dont wander off to the competition in the meantime? 

By the way, I looked at an OMD body and compared it to my G11, it's fine until you start putting lenses on it, it will be the same with the EOS M but at least the OMD has a swivel screen (I think).

Trying to decide between the S100 and SX260.  Camera will be used solely in Auto mode.  Much feifference in IQ?  Solely interested in still shots, no video.  This will be used as my sole camera for all purposes.
