Good start for new tendention, IMHO!
This Camera have Sony CCD 1/2.3", but G10 1/1.7" - so what did balico have to say about Canon developers?
The only achievement of this camera in comparison with an slr camera is the lower cost of production due to absence of expensive mechanics lift the mirror and additional sensors for metering and autofocus. The manageability and handability of the grip have sharply decreased, also the design proved to be a suitable only for a narrow segment of buyers. It reminds me of artillery fire registration around classic without slr cameras: Q - undershoot, K - flight. So the target can get before the Canon, for which, as it seems, Nikon and Pentax conduct free research of the without slr cameras market
Anirban Banerjee: Lens is too slow at 60mm (120mm equivalent).
Too slow compare to what?
andersf: Looks awesome. What I don't understand is why they decided on a 4:3 sensor? 3:2 or even 16:9 would have made more sense.
Composition rarely requires a square frame, and cutting the top of the frame, we will use significantly less space than if the picture was originally a rectangular
Flashback: I agree why not 3:2?
3/2 requires a larger lens with equal diagonal
dmanthree: What a curious camera. While it looks nice, why would I buy this instead of something with interchangeable lenses? The f2.8 aperture is nice, but it vanishes quickly as the zoom extends.
Firstly,EVIL are not so small as this one except with prime pancake only; secondly, EVIL kit lens are not faster, but at most of focal lengths G1X's optics faster than most of the zoom lenses. As a second camera and/or the camera for constant carrying with myself, this one is far preferable (giving greater flexibility in use with the small size, which covers most of the typical cases)
It' a TRUTH!:))
Improvement in pictures of the 7100 are insignificant in comparison with the predecessor, and JPEG-engine frankly surprised with shift red tones in the brick-and-orange. I believe that the "old man" Canon still is the leader among the advanced on equipment compact cameras. Taking into account the maximum aperture of the S100, it was on a one stop wins in detail, especially in JPEG. This is clearly seen on a white letters at red paper. Also G12 and S100 have a wider dynamic range. Disappointed only optics S100, very soft on the right and in general impression beck-focus on the whole plane. However, a large sensor with a small number of pixels is better than any minor brothers:)
