The message is very clear: If you want 4K video clips buy anything but Canon, unless you pony up with the big bucks for their top cameras

Annoying but true! I wonder how long they will hold out before introducing 4K into their cheaper cameras? Will it take ever other manufacturer having 4K, in all their budget cameras, before they relent?!

unlike the whiners and complainers.. I'm looking forward to the similar DIGIC 7 improvements from the G7X for this camera.

Cool: 2010 million Pixels!!!!

What's the file size? Where can I buy a supercomputer to process this?

Tempting, essentially the same size as my S100 (now my older daughter's) but better IQ. Would prefer 24mm equivalent on the wide end, that's a significant improvement over 28mm (one reason I got the S100 to replace the S95, the latter is now my younger daughter's).

But...I think I'll stick with the M2.

I don't know how long they'll hold out, it's already an embarrassment.
In the video world, 1080p is the old SD quality, and 4K is the new "HD standard quality." Only offering 1080p video is like putting out a stills camera with an 8 MP sensor today, when the competition is selling 24 MP cameras.

From your comment here, I presume you own/owned both the G7X and the G7X II...and I surmise that the G7X II has DIGIC 7 while the older G7X has DIGIC 6?

Can you elaborate on the ways that DIGIC 7 improved the usability/responsiveness of the II (compared to the original G7X)?

Whether it is Canon's S series (such as the S95, which I own), the G series (such as the G9X, which I do not own), or the EOS M family (own and enjoy both the M and M2)...I would pay more for cameras with the dimensions and weights of all three of these sets of cameras...and I would even settle for LESS battery life...if Canon souped up their responsiveness with better/faster processing power and AF abilities.

I am hoping this drops the price of the G9X Mark I, so I can replace my wife's aging S110. I like 1-inch sensor cameras (previously had RX100, now have a Panasonic LX10), but my wife values portability more than anything else, so I've had my eye on the G9X for a while, but think the $429 price it's at right now is a tad dear for what I get.

What is the need for having 4k in a camera like this? Serious question, because I would imagine any ILC would be better suited then this.

Why do you need ISO 6400? Why do you need a 24 f/1.4 ? Why do you need an 11-24mm zoom?
If you can't figure it out yourself, you wouldn't understand or accept any explanation.

Why is no one else troubled by the fact that these images and the specs are identical to the G9 X, save for the swap-out of a DIGIC 6 image processor. Is that it? 15+ months of R&D has resulted in Canon doing no more than a microprocessor upgrade?!

Nice contribution!

Some reasons:
- Future proofing : You or your clients may not need 4k now but soon they will. I hate cutting in old sd footage. I will hate cutting in 1080.
- Room for post : Stabilizing footage without loss. This edit style is quite hot atm and it benefits greatly from 4k since there is alot of zooming, panning, rotating and cropping in post. https://vimeo.com/88224399 You can see some of the shots are not holding up.
- 1 camera 2 shots : Nice to have for interviews. Shoot 4k and deliver in hd so you can shoot a wide and tight shot at the same time.
- Often clients ask for still so they can make gfx like posters. 1080px is not alot to work with.
- It sells

The question wasn't, "Why 4K?" But thanks for answering that unasked question anyway! Unless you think this is a camera intended for professionals, interviews, and such. Do you routinely or even occasionally use a point-n-shoot to capture video footage for clients?

The question is highlighted above, and since the camera in question is a P&S, and smartphones are gutting the P&S market, it would seem quite reasonable to include 4K.

We are troubled, but there's nothing much left to say. We all know it's a poor update that Canon seems very good at in the entry level area.

Canon's major issue is the fact the senior management are mostly 75-85 years old. These old fossils have long lost the plot and are from an ultraconservative era. They just don't get it. The head of Sony's imaging group is in his 40's and look at the goals they are kicking. Nikon I presume is not much better than Canon as they seem to make similar crazy decisions.

LOL...

Yes, let's look at those goals. Sony imaging loses 25% y/y sales in 1H16 (nowhere nearly all attributable to the quake)...score. Sony imaging raises full FY16 projection by 4%, meaning a projected y/y loss of 21% sales...score. Sony loses more market share to Canon...SCORE. It's Sony...for the win!!
