They added a mic jack! If they have good stabilization and DPAF I'd be intruiged. Super light vlogging solution. Don't really care about 4k.

I would love to see dual pixel focusing on this. What other improvements would anyone want to see?

Does anyone still buy these things? It would seem that a typical smartphone would serve this purpose. It's an honest question, I am wondering who these things are for.
A smartphone doesn't stand a chance against these, but those who care about that are probably going to buy something even better.

Looks interesting.
If true then I am glad that Canon didn't change much at the lens.
Of course making it better is always welcome.
But there also were rumors of wider FL range at the cost of aperture.
The later would be the more important part for me.

Honest answer:
Have you ever shot with a phone cam in dim light without flash?
Quite common subject this time of the year might be children in front of the candle lit Christmas tree.
My brother-in-law tried so and was really unhappy with the result of his toddler. Looked like in a snow storm of image noise.
I recommended a 1" camera as he was not willing to go bigger and since he has the G7x Mk II he never complained again.

Can you imagine the difference in light gathered by a 1" sensor compared to the tiny one in a smartphone?

In good light it is really hard to tell the difference. But not, if the light conditions get difficult.

I own the G7XII. Great pocketable camera. Easy to pick it up and go. IQ, flash, AF, AF in low light are all significant improvements over my iPhone.

I have actually printed pictures from my G7XII, enlarged them (~11x17") and put them on my wall. Look great. iPhone pics look good, on an iPhone. I have never really liked them if I try to enlarge, etc.

They a for people who wants a really good travel camera. It beats a smartphone by far. Used the mark ii on a trip to Mexico. The best P&S next after the EOS R (sold my 5D mark IV to get this)

People like my father seem to like them, He was a photo guy in the film days but never made a strong transition into digital. So he has good photo skills but doesn't want a huge camera.

These PowerShot 1-inch compacts are great! Good optics and very good sensors (Sony?). Hoping for weather sealing like the G1X.

I have never used one but I see these cameras as a good all round system for those who like to own ONE camera and want to have SOME flexibility with the zoom and REALLY are interested in reasonable IQ. I would never give my M50 + EF-M 32 away for such a camera but I like to shoot primes and do zooming by feet - but I understand that there are others who cannot walk that much ...

There is a huge difference. Following is the same image with G9 X II, SX280 HS (a small sensor compact) and my Honor 8:

Now there are better smart phones but that is pretty typical IMO.

so much this :)

The cases for SLRs are insanely expensive!

I've been using the G7X first version and now G7X II underwater exclusively for 2 years now. Stellar results in a small package :)

Don’t new phones run ~$1000?
(Some) People don’t think twice about dropping $1K for a phone but think it’s outrageous to spend that on a camera.
