  • I own a G15 (image quality more or less similar to G16) and use a G12 at work (I believe same sensor as G11).  I'm not so sure at low ISO's that you'll really see much of an image improvement, ...
  • How can Canon justify the high price of the S200 vs. the S110?  Unless you're one of the folks who believes CCD color is better than CMOS color, the S110 trumps it in every aspect.
  • If true, wouldn't this be a G1X II killer?  Reviews suggest the 1" Sony sensor is pretty much on par with the Canon despite the difference in size.  With a much faster lens and greater zoom, who ...
  • In my case, I have an aging Canon Rebel setup (1000D/xsi) that largely sits unused in favor of my Canon G15. I do miss the low light performance and speed of operation of a DSLR and have been ...
  • That's the thing I didn't understand as I had read of such but the store lighting in Best Buy was pretty good I'd say.  As this issue is fairly well known, I'm surprised Canon hasn't issued a ...
  • Replied in Canon G16
    That was a killer, killer deal on the G15 if you got it before Christmas when the price dipped below $200, especially considering I paid $480 for mine just after release.  The speed of operation ...
  • Finally local Best Buy has working G1X II camera out on display so I was playing with it today.  The strange thing is, the camera refused to focus at wide angle when aiming at distant objects ...
  • That's an interesting thought.  Why would Canon skip over G5X unless it had a future camera planned with that moniker.  I agree below specs are hugely ambitious and unrealistic.  The G7X as it is, ...
  • Now that the G3X seems pretty certain, the rumor of the 24-200 F1.4-20 camera seems not to be reinforced much lately. Could rumor in truth being an early mistake on the G3X projected specs? http:// ...
  • The rumor did say "several powershots".  If they come out with a big honker to compete with the Pany, then I also hope they come up with a smaller, less ambitious zoom as a successor to the G16. An ...
  • I bought my G15 to "supplement" my S100 but I found in most instances, the G15 was pocketable enough so that now I rarely use the S100.  The advantage of the fast lens is immense but you having an ...
  • Carl, I don't ever see the second option happening.  This would essentially make it a better camera than the G1X II.  This would be a faster lens on a sensor that from most review sites is on par ...
  • Replied in G17 rumour.
    Sony RX10 is appreciably bigger (much thicker with lens) then even G1X Mark II.  Just how big is this rumored camera going to be?  I'm not sure Canon would name a camera that overwhelms the G16 in ...
  • Interesting.  The LX7 has quite a loyal following.  Any particular reason for purchasing a G15 when already owning a LX7?  I bet the LX7 is faster in operation as that is my biggest gripe ...
  • My thoughts and experiences exactly when shooting the 5 year old.  The camera definitely "got in the way" of which my DSLR did not.  As I posted in other threads, I'm not expecting high speed ...
  • G1X Refurb, $269.99, SX50 Refurb, $179.  With all three cameras still available and refurb prices continuing to drop, my thought is they plan on discontinuing these cameras.
  • I use a G12 at work and echo Andy's thoughts completely.  The articulating screen and also ISO knob of the G12 is nice but the other aspects of a (for me G15, G16 even better) completely outweigh ...
  • Yes on paper, unless someone really wanted an EVF that bad, can't see why anyone would choose the F30 over the G16.  Bigger body, less zoom and I would think only a marginal image resolution increase.
  • Carl will be interested if or when you post thoughts on the Fuji X30 compared to the G16 as I see the Fuji is in your review que.
  • Thank you for your thorough and concise review.  Your review makes me want to trade up from the G15, even though the G15 is treating me fine.  One niggle I have which I have posted before is I ...
