PowerShot Cameras / Re: G15 dissapointment
« on: September 17, 2012, 02:45:37 PM »
I was actually looking forward to the S110, but find it to be a major disappointment.  On the contrary, the G15 is better than I expected and thank you Canon for finally return the G series to it roots....FAST LENS!

Count me disappointed, too.

No flippy screen - that rules it out entirely.

Not only that, but it's still missing the GPS and 200/400 fps video modes introduced in the S100!

And also no 1080p/60.

The f/2.8 lens on the G11/G12 is fast enough for me - I don't need a faster lens in a compact (I have a DSLR if I need that, but it doesn't fit in my everyday backpack.)

I'm not at all interested in the G15.  I'm going to shop for a used G12 on eBay instead (to replace my G11).

Me too, but only if Canon has a sensor larger than 1/1.7"; otherwise the RX100 is getting my purchase.

I'm interested in the S110... maybe it'll be FF

Maybe the case, but from what we have seen so far, neither the G15 or S110 look exciting as the RX100.

Why isn't Canon offering more with a larger sensor?  Though that is only part of it.  If they haven't corrected the performance seen recently in the G1X, S100, and G12, then no spec will make up for it.

Yeah; haven't heard of that one before.

Now the question is when is the official announcement?

Yup 13 is bad luck in the West and 14 bad luck in China.
14 bad luck in China? Maybe you mean 4?

Well I know that 4 and 9 are unlucky in Japan so maybe the person I quoted got it wrong?

Enjoy! Seems to be a very impressive camera.  Unfortunately, Canon nor Panasonic nor Olympus have offered anything as impressive let alone better than what Sony is offering.

I got my RX100 today - very positive after playing around with it for a while. :)

Are you talking about the G15? If so, not sure there is any anticipation as we have already seen the specs and pics.  Nice, had it come out maybe 2009, it the competition has advanced so much more.

Really comes down to price and size.  If you want the smallest camera with the best image quality, RX100 is it.  No other camera will fit in your pocket with a built in flash and sensor size larger than 1/1.7" and offer the same or better performance, not the S100, S110, G12, G15, LX5 or LX7, EX2, or XZ1 or XZ2.

I want a compact, fixed lens camera to take everywhere when I'm not carrying my 5d2 or 7d. Have previously tried m43, E-P1 and E-PM1, and felt they were too slow and didn't want to buy multiple lenses for them and my dslrs. Bought an S100, it takes sharp, detailed shots but also tempted to exchange for RX100. I keep reading that the Sony has a sensor that is triple the size, and the price is double what I paid for the S100. Can anyone who has used both offer insight as to whether I should stay with the Canon or return it and get the Sony? Can the Sony offer double or triple the iq to justify the price? Thanks, Debbie

Agree.  Right now it still appears the compact camera is the RX100.

Disappointed to see Canon stuck with the smaller sensor.  Also sure hope Canon corrected the slow performance on the G12 and S100.

As far as model numbers are concerned, I would think that the S105 would be the next generation of this model seeing how they progressed from S95, S100, SXXX..... 

I still have both of these models and just bought the Sony RX100 about a month ago from Digital Rev in China. Got to admit, the RX100 IQ is spectacular.  It's fast and has many more usuable features than my beloved S100.

Now what Canon?

Looks like they are still using the smaller 1/1.7" sensor. Finally a faster lens, but looks like Canon is just now catching up to the competition, nothing really new or interesting.  RX100 is still the edge with smaller size to fit in your pocket with a larger sensor.

Hopefully should be hearing something this week.

Previously it was mentioned the G12 and S100 successors would be announced this week?  Any news or updates?  Now Wednesday and have not heard a thing.

The D800?  Also the RX100, FZ200, RX1, and the list goes on.

Seems Canon is in catch-up mode.

I think the D800 caught them flatfooted.  They thought the Pixel wars were over.  The market seems to think otherwise. Oh, and all reviews point to the D800 having those "quality" pixels.  I suspect Canon may have had stuff to announce that was not going to be competitive with the competition, particularly with their new pricing policy (you will pay MORE!!).  They have to regroup a bit and accelerate a few products.  Thats also dangerous as both Nikon and Canon seemed to have slipped in the first run quality department (5D3 light leaks, S100 problems, D800 auto focus problems).  Canon will have stuff soon enough but it looks like September will be light.  I suspect they will be focusing on their lenses (pun intended)
