I'm really dissapointed by Canon, they are far behind other companies when it comes to features. They could at least add DR, but would also prefer to have HDR and 60fps @1080p.

S120 and G16 both have 60fps and HDR so I thought that most of new Canons will have this features.

Bracketing in 14 bit raw, exposure blending and Graduated ND filters will all give you great dynamic range if you need it.

I agree but I am tired of processing and storing .raw file and having them slow down my write speed for certain shoots.  Having a DR option is still nice.  Though like you said its there if you want to work for it.

and when is Canon going to include sweep panorama for the first time in one of their cameras, like in 20 years?

Panoramas are easy to take without panorama sweep and the quality is better.

Yes they are better.  Most of the Pano options on camera are not as good as an iPhone because the size minimized to something so small it can't printed.  If they stitched full size and did it well, I would appreciate the option.

This is not accaptable!

Don't buy it, every camera is compromise somewhere along the line, the G1X is less of a compromise than most. If Canon tried to fit in every feature that everyone wanted you'd have a camera the size of a small hatchback and then someone would moan about the size.

Agree
