Returning G1X sadly
Apr 20, 2012

I must say the G1X is a wonderful camera for the pictures that i was taking. Everything about it was great except for one thing. The size. I did read some of the reviews but until you hold the camera do you really realize how big the camera is. With that said I also have a 7d and a g12 so in my world the camera either fits in the pocket or it doesnt. My g12 can fit in my pocket or a nice case attached to the belt. The G1X no chance so from my perspective if i am going to have to carry a camera i will take the 7d. If the camera were a little smaller hands down would have replaced the g12. If someone is looking to compliment their pocket camera but is turned off by a DSLR then by all means the G1X is the cameras you are looking for. Picture quality was great but for me at $799 it wasnt that much better than my G12 for the carrying around.
