  • Right. If looking at 100%, the 1080p frame *might* appear sharper than 16mp at 100%. Also mentioned is you're going way way beyond optical zoom into digital interpolation which will severely ...

    I think you will be happy with either. I don't find the speed or performance limiting on the g7x1... Then I don't shoot RAW, but even if I did, I find it difficult to imagine needing more than ...
  • This is what I mean. I don't often do a lot of processing to my images... some minor curve, brightness, shadow adjust perhaps, unsharp mask. If I can get some similar result with picture styles ...

    In other words, performance has greatly increased, and if you pixel peep extremely close you might see a difference in IQ. Still waiting for the pudding.
  • Thanks for taking the time to post this. It can be a lot of work writing out a proper review and getting pictures up etc... Another user asked about picture styles... I'm interested in this as ...

    Have seen nothing to show the g7xii has better IQ than g7x1. Speed, yes. IQ, possibly, but unlikely to be noticeable unless peaking extremely closely. If on a budget and don't need the extra RAW ...
  • Mmm.. Not sure how fast the G1X2 closes up. It's f3.9 at the long end (5x). G5X much brighter at f2.8 (4.2x), thus able to shoot at lower ISO. Regardless, I think the sensor of g5x should stand up ...
  • +1 95% I'm shooting in Av when I need to be in control. I often shoot in auto as well. Though auto almost invariably chooses largest aperture, It's fine for me. For typical shots (not macro), I ...
  • Look good to me. Same softish edges and corners as M1, but nobody notices that unless zooming in and peeping. I would love to see M1 vs M2 same shots at same time w/same settings.
  • BTW, I think it really depends on your shooting as well. For example, if you're mostly shooting non-portrait shots in good daylight, and don't care about touch to focus, there's not much of a ...
  • The sensor is 3x as big. If you think G15 was good in low-light, you should be beyond pleased with G5X. Cropping will make up for some of the reach difference, but not completely. There are many ...
  • Have you owned the g7x? I've not owned m2, but own m1. To me, SOOC images look about the same. There's no question that the low-light performance and thus versatility is a leap above G15. Here's ...
  • Significantly more versatility in low light. More bokeh. Touch display. FHD30P/60P. More responsive (digic 5 v digic 6). Higher res sensor, though it could be argued that sharpness suffers past ...
  • Your best off making a new thread with the desired parameters. What cameras do you have now? What will you be shooting? What's your budget? Etc..
  • Incorrect. The G7X1 puts a fairly decent smoking on RX100M2. And neither RX100M2 or M3 have a touchscreen or range or bokeh possibilities of the G7X.
  • Not sure if you can find one of these in Peru (top 4, and bottom 2 in pic), but maybe. They're all over the place in Thailand. I forgot my G7X charger last week on holiday and it saved my ass. ...
  • SOOC images rarely impress, regardless of camera. Have a gander at these (2nd tab) http://www.cyberphoto.se/info.php?article=g7xmk2 And these SOOC looking quite good. Some of them looking great. ht ...
  • Looking forward to hearing your review. I'm also a G7X1 owner who hasn't had any real world issues with the corners.
  • Any uncorrected RAW looks like that. Though true the corners tend towards soft at wide. Does that really matter for anyone other than people at dpreview that stare at corners? OP, Get the G7X or ...
  • Can check manual focusing with ring and d-pad? In G7X1 it was virtually useless. Needed to press or ring click 100's of times to manually adjust focus.
