G7X....clearly a winner.

Dpr continues to slide downhill with its ratings. Credibility? Keep looking.

In reply to:

wildkat2: I sold images on Fotolia for a few years before switching to Dreamstime exclusively. Their payouts were terrible even for micro stock which is saying a lot.

I know your experience and concur.

Your info is incomplete. Fotolia sells many if not most images for as little as 0.29 cents per image. Subscriptions have killed the site as a place for photographers to make some income. Good for buyers, not for sellers. I know.

Canon G7X gets my vote for experienced photogs.

Canon G7X has all competitors beat on what it offers: lens, touchscreen, and more. Clearly the deserved #1 choice.

In reply to:

Rupert Bottomsworth: I don't understand why they've said the lens zoom range is a con/negative. What do they expect? A 7-300mm f/0.95 at this size?

There is so little to like in this...low res, short lens, bulky, and no touch screen. I'd have to sell this used in 30 minutes.

Amazing error: best cam not seen in list: Canon G7X.
Credibility diminished.

Best pocket camera hands down. Period. The biased pundits are out to lunch. Amateurs pretending to know irrelevant stuff. None of the critics know how to make images of quality that sell in the marketplace but think they know ? Gimme a break. Get some coffee.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Review preview (803 comments in total)

You got to wonder why Sony seems incapable to make a cam with touchscreen AF. For the sake of competition I hope they get to work to build something with being interested in. And that uber-short lens.... so very limiting.
Thankfully Canon has a class leading G7X.

In reply to:

brownei: another half built camera with no view finder; and a swivel screen like the G12 is so much more versatile imo. Sounds so close to another a great camera from Canon but this one hasn't got my name on it :(.

There is no rival to the latest Canon. The G7X is far ahead of Sony....not serious competition.
Maybe Sony can come up with something new to try to rival the G7X. It might make it interesting.
But maybe they are not able to match the lens range nor the touchscreen at this time.

jonrobertp: This cam is better than the latest Sony. Pop up VF vs touch screen is no contest. optical VF is not a big deal any longer...passé. Lens ---Canon wins easily.
The Sony got 2% higher score because it came out first. Had this cam come out ahead of the Sony it would be the Gold recipient and the Sony the silver. Just a matter of a few months timing.

This is the very best camera for any pocket on the market today.

The only reason this unit got Gold was due to having no competition at the time it came out. The new canon easily beats it in features and usefulness.
Most ppl are fine w lcd shooting these days. And to not have a touchscreen nor touchscreen AF....in this day...is clearly behind the times. B-.

The EC in my G7X works perfectly ...to my liking. Much preferred over what I had in my RX100. So I cannot agree with the reviewer on this detail.

In reply to:

Fudgington: This seems a rather negative review and one not borne out by other users on the focus issues. I was hoping to get this camera as an improvement on the S120 as a carry around camera, so this is a little disappointing. I guess the best thing to do is try it out for myself rather than place too much store by reviews...

Did you notice that touch screen af seems better than regular ? Also wide area af followed by touch screen in dark low contrast situations sure helps.
