  • The Nikon 1 V3 isn't really comparable. The whole point of a compact is to be...compact.

    If you need to carry around a bunch of lenses to accomplish the same thing the G1X Mark II can do with...

  • Very fair review. If Canon addresses the issues you listed under "Cons", the Mark III will be a classic camera. This one isn't there yet, but it will replace a DSLR for travel for many still...

  • For me, photography is mostly a practical/technical thing, not an artistic thing. For example - I sometimes go to auctions for used equipment. Viewing day is not the same day as the auction, so I ...
  • I think it saved 2 or 3 mm on the width of the camera (vs. vari-angle); see my other post about that. I don't agree with their priorities, but at least it's a rational reason. Ah, but the EVF can't ...

  • 1080p60? I'd be happy with 720p60.  Or even 480p60.  Why doesn't the G1X Mark II have any of those? 1920x1080 at 30p is 62.208 Mpixels/second.  If the DIGIC 6 can do that, then it should also be ...

  • The vari-angle design does all those things just fine. And I've never had a problem with fragility.
  • You can't tell from the photos here on DPR, but the screen on the G1X Mark II is not the usual Canon "Vari-angle" - it's a new thing that only tilts up-and-down, not left-and-right. What is with ...
  • No. There is no reason to care. The only reason I can think of is if you were planning to sell it on eBay and the buyer wanted to know the S/N (so in theory he could check if it was listed as stolen).
