daft: Does it have the Sony Sensor? Or is it a new 1" Sensor from Canon?
According to the DPReview first impressions they think it is the Sony sensor.
phazelag: Did you see the battery life? Number of shots?
And its not smaller than the Sonys?
Other than Menu familiarity what advantage does it have on the Sony?
I was interested in this, but now I its a non starter.
210 shots is a lot of images - for me. You must be a spray and pray kind of guy, eh? :)
Ian SS: What happened to the hot shoe? This is a G camera, I am disappointed.
This is NOT a G camera. It's a new series for 1" sensors. The trade-off is a larger sensor without 4K and OVF or EVF - for now.
Photos Of Our Planet: I was somewhat interested in this camera. But the 1/2000 minimum shutter speed is just too much. Since I live in Arizona I constantly would have to stop down (which reduces sharpness via diffraction) even at base ISO to not over expose. 1/4000 is a minimum these days. I don't want to carry a silly ND filter. That should be in camera or have higher shutter speeds at this point. Especially for $549.
Oops. Sorry, I thought you were talking about the G7X, which does have a 3 stop ND filter.
vesa1tahti: No specs...
Ever heard of Canon USA? :) It's all here:http://consumer.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/digital_cameras/powershot_sx60_hs
steve_hoge: Need specs...like how fast is that lens on the SX60?

Bigger iPhones? But, didn't Tim Cook two years ago tell us that the 4" iPhone was the "perfect size for one handed use?" Still, the camera looks a bit better, but the deals on the 5s will make it very attractive to first-time users.
- Glad to see that "Silent Mode" is carried over to the X30.
- Can someone explain the advantage of the "Classic Chrome" film look? The samples I've seen on the Fujifilm site don't look all that unique or different - not the Kodachrome look we had back in the day.
It's a nice evolution of the X20. Price is right and feature set is very good. But, I think DPR summed it up well on the last page as follows: "...it can't keep up with the RX100 II and G1 X II in terms of image quality."
Now, on to the rumored LX8, please.
No built-in ND filter! Even the LX-7 has one. A pity...
I found a Sony camera last fall while on a trip to New Jersey. Examining the images turned up the initials on a youngster's soccer jersey. I Googled the initials, which turned out to belong to a club in another state which had a website and Facebook page. I emailed the coaches on the website. They knew the player and owner who contacted me the same day. I sent him the camera.
The owner said he'd lain awake nights trying to remember where he'd lost the camera. It had at least 100 images on it THAT HAD NEVER BEEN COPIED TO A COMPUTER!
I was just paying someone back for the camera bag that was returned to me when I left it - full of lenses - on a busy sidewalk at a cruise terminal in Florida.
Thanks for putting up the GM1 comparison so quickly.
Does the camera have a "silent" mode, i.e., the ability to turn off all sounds and flash, say in a museum or theater.
Are there filter threads on the lens barrel?
John McCormack: Anyone else having a problem viewing the samples gallery? I've tried a couple of browsers but they seem to be offline. ???
edit: Never mind. User error I think.

Fotogeneticist: Impressive... what's the flash sync speed for this camera? Why doesn't anyone include flash sync in specs anymore? After using a Ricoh GR Digital with a max flash sync of 1/4000 with a wireless flash setup (possible even without a hotshoe using an optical slave, which is what I am doing with my Nikon V1) I could never use a camera without at least 1/250 flash sync. Being able to overpower the sun with a ring flash at max aperture and get a nice blurry background in addition to the wraparound effect is addictive! If this thing has a fast flash sync, it may just replace my Ricoh GR or Nikon V1!
eidt: Oops. Sorry this was already commented upon.Flash synch. is 1/50 sec. according to Panny. rep. on the B&H video preview at Photo Plus Expo this week.
Henry Falkner: It is a pocket-sized interchangeable lens camera with a 16 MP micro 4/3 CMOS sensor, and therefore in consideration for a 24x zoom P&S user like me. I would need a long zoom for something like yesterday's arrival of the tall ships. I then would regard the camera body as an attachment to the lens. I am concerned about the placement of the video button close to the display button. A similar placement on my SZ-30MR leads to operator errors when I am working on auto pilot.
Henry, I believe you can disable the video button with a menu or Fn key. Take a look at this preview video on YouTube:http://youtu.be/uxkI8psIh4U
I don't get the GM1 - for an amateur at least. Yes, it's small with a big sensor, but the kit lens is slow and short in reach. There's no hot shoe. To get a faster lens jumps the price up to or over $1,000, I think. Nice for a professional's second camera. I'll stick to the 1/1.7 cameras until or unless the price on the GM1 falls in the next six months.
Ben Herrmann: Bingo....glad to see this. I really like the P7700 with regards to IQ. Having this higher def EVF makes all the difference in the world. Will definitely pick this one up.
I'm with you, Ben. Always liked the Nikon colors. Can you tell me if the P7700 (and presumably the P7800) takes filters directly on to the lens barrel? Thanks.
