When is a compact camera not a compact ? When it is a G1 X
Jan 13, 2012

Look at this...

It is larger than I thought. It is 33% heavier than a G12.

I am having problems knowing how to look at this camera.. Too big for a compact, you will still need a bag to carry it. I'm not sure it will even fit in a coat pocket like the G12 can, let alone the NEX.

I may as well carry a 600D. It too will fit in a small bag and be vastly better.

Camera Size comparator here...

It is a big ugly lump isnt it?? I am surprised at the dimensions and weight when you compare it to others.

I don't mean to bash it. But I really don't see the point.

I welcome debate to persuade me
