On article Canon PowerShot G3 X: What you need to know (612 comments in total)

Waiting for some creative photographers to show the world that View Finders in any format restrict your photography. Wait for the rain of Viewfinder lovers to go on now... Every counter argument can be dismissed, that's all I'm saying...

BeaniePic: Been using the PS G7X for 2 months. Probably the best compact camera I've used. Touch screen focusing is a dream, quick even in low light. The control ring is what I love most as the images are what I'd expect, being able to control what I want to do so easily. Entered 3 shots into local camera club competition to see how they went against larger format cameras. Came 2nd in 2 classes, no one would believe the Pics came from a compact camera.
Think I've converted the whole club to this camera. But as always it's each to there own, pound for pound this has got to be one of the best compact cameras on the market for the price.

Only seen your reply. No firmware update, straight out of the box. Not sure what the reviewers were using, maybe pre-production. This has been the fastest AF compact camera I've used. Totally in love with it.

PeterBM: It's not only a question of more and more, it's mainly a question of choice and trade-offs. If GX7 had a fully articulated screen and no touch screen, i would buy it quickly to replace my rather used G11. Unfortunately, after its successful G serie (those with this kind of screen), Canon prefer copy Sony. Today, I have nothing to replace my G11.

It is Touch Screen...

Thank you Canon for making a Camera that will do the job it's designed to do. As for not having a Vari-Angle Touch Screen I get it. This camera will be used by Sports and Wildlife Photographers who shoot in all types of harsh situations. If there was a Vari-Angle Touch screen on this it probably would have issues with letting in moisture and also affecting the Touch Screen. I wish the Spec lead photographers would think before making comments. And as for Mirrorless, well I wont go there again as I've already made my statement on that...

Jon_Doh: Canon continues to fall farther behind the competition. There will come a point in time when they can no longer rely upon "it's the entire system that matters" and their lens line up. True, the 7D II is a great upgrade, but the 5D III is long in the tooth and over priced and the rest of their line up simply stinks.

And as for Jon_Doh claiming I'm a Canon Fanboy.... Totally as It has been the system that consistently and I mean consistently give's me the output I need and make my living on, no other system has come close yet...

I can only speak for myself and a few hundred photographers out there that can't work with mirror-less systems, but using the word system is even a joke on mirror-less... I have hit brick wall after brick wall when taking serious shots with this format. Oly, Fuj,i Pana and especially Sony "systems" have had to be sent back time after time. I have used Canon for over 20 years and have also dropped into Nikon now and again, they can give me the systems I need. These other brands have a way to go yet, not saying they are brining out some interesting kit. But like most brands out there they are trying to crowd please instead of giving "photographers" systems that actually does the job it claims it can do consistently. That's my and many, many other photographers I deal with and speak to have to say anyway. But as I said at the start, you can say what makes you fell better. It's just not as truthful as you may think.

Here, here, all this 4K in consumer products is a scam and only for the spec lead out there.

Keep saying it to yourself if it makes you feel better. Your way of the mark, but once it makes you feel better that's all that matters...

Stop going on about 4K. When 4K is mainstream, all the toys that have brought it out now will be junk. When consumers don't even have 4K screens this is laughable. This is an enthusiast sports and wildlife photographers camera.

£150 cheaper than the RX100 III, with better focal length and aperture. Wait for the trolling haters to slam it now.

Dan1964: I'll never buy another Canon pixma. Never had a printer that used so much ink just turning it off and on.

The statement about ink from the cartridge being used to clean the print heads is correct. One fact to take note of is that using most 3rd party inks is a false economy. Was part of a test not that long ago that showed more ink from 3rd party inks used more to clean the head than originals, and on average use you would replace 3X the amount of 3rd party inks before 1 original was emptied. So when using 3rd party ink multiply the ticket cost x 3 to get a true cost of printing on average use, not continious. Also using 3rd party inks voids warranties if any issues arise around the print head.... Just saying....

peevee1: Huh. 2014 and no built-in WiFi, when every point and shoot has it already?!

And they still continue to play games. 5 fps at 36 mpix means that sensor and processor are able to produce 7.2 (not 6) fps at 1.2x and 11.2 fps (not 7) at DX crop. Artificial limits on a $3200 camera. Huh.

WiFi will not work in a Magnesium Alloy Body. It has to be an external unit.

Vegasus: Dear NIKON company, will u make the next D5 is mirrorless??? FF mirrorless like Sony a7?
I want FF Mirrorless, electronic viewfinder with similar features like fuji x-t1, wifi, bluetooth, built-in modem ( so take photo and send it right away to the internet, ho ho ho ho ) slightly smaller, lighter, expeed 5 perhaps, 20 megapixels, no grain at very high iso, ....

If only the A7 did what it said...

Beckler8: Gigantic DSLRs like this are becoming more and more niche - really just for certain pros that need specific types of performance. They should make a more versatile version, call it the D4V or whatever, that has many more video features like 4K, power zoom and AF that actually works. At least then hobbyists can justify the massive price and size because then suddenly it's a cinema camera as well.

World press photo cameras 2014. Nikon need this camera, but have a little way to go yet. http://www.thephoblographer.com/2014/02/18/canon-1d-x-dominates-world-press-photo-2014-list/

It's not the same 18MP sensor everyone. Please, please, read up on whats happening before you comment. Haven't been here for a while due to the lack of knowledge and understanding from commentators on this site. I'm leaving again....

Alec_c: Fanboys gathered to bring flowers to the new Canon muse ... Laughable.
How many of the these ... actually touched, held and shot this camera? I did so.
Dpreview rated ergonomics as excellent. I beg to differ big time: tiny buttons and especially wheels, unusable 4-way selector, cramped body and ultra-cramped hand hold ("sir, you should buy a grip"). The mobile screen is the only good thing to say about the ergonomics. Fit anything but a small and cheap lens and it will fall on it's nose.
One question though, all these people asking for smaller cameras are just pygmies with recently acquired internet connections or terminally weak exemplars of our species? Since when a few ounces of body should sacrifice even a basic thing as holding properly a camera. Unless you buy to keep it on a shelf and show to friends. To a similar comment, a gentleman (of debatable wit) suggested to hold it with the tips of the fingers.

I've owned for a month and am in total love with with. There you go... Sold many images from it as well. It's a complete dream of a camera...

Jack Hogan: "In terms of image quality the 70D is essentially on a par with its rivals"

Who's your daddy, DPReview? Informed photographers know that the IQ of the 70D is uncompetitive today and lags a couple of generations behind that of its rivals, whether that be DR, color sensitivity or spatial resolution. Its strengths lie elsewhere.

Your readers want objective information in order to make an informed decision when buying a camera of a certain class and budget.

Q: Is this the better camera for Landscapes? A: No
Q: Is this the better camera for Portraits? A: No
Q: Is this the better camera for Wildlife/BIF? A: No
Q: Is this the better camera for Video? A: Maybe
Q: if I go for a smaller/lighter system will I lose IQ? A: It depends on the kind of shooting you do

The fact is, once you start comparing it objectively to its brothers from another mother the 70D's IQ comes out looking pretty short. Sugar coat it, but this is what your readers expect from you.

Jack

Sounds like you've owned and used an EOS 70D for a while, I'm an early adopter of this model myself have already sold many images from it and disagree with every word you've typed. This camera out preforms older models as well as many other models on the market. Take it from someone who does this for a job, full time...

The Sony is actually quite a bit larger and around 4 times the price...
