On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1666 comments in total)

If Canon wanted to alienate their fan base this was a success.

I was right. They simply gave up.

All press is good press unless it is negative press. Then it is just “Bad News”.

Did Canon just troll all of Dpreview? Can we ban them from ever posting here again?

“Impossible!” You keep saying that word over and over again. I do not think it means what you think it means. I am Inigo Montoya. You killed my favorite camera company. Prepare to die.

I don’t know why I keep waiting for the “Next Big Thing” from Canon when I know I will just be disappointed every time.

mpgxsvcd: Does this camera max out at ISO 1600? I didn’t see any samples over ISO 1600. The LX100 gets bashed because its ISO 6400 samples were so bad. I wonder if the G7X can do it any better?

Sorry I appreciate your post. I didn’t even think to look at the ISO of that picture because it was so well lit. I was just very surprised that they chose ISO 2000 for that picture but ISO 1600 or less for everything else.

It looks like the specs say that the ISO goes from ISO 125 to 12800.

Is this a pre-production camera?

mpgxsvcd: I like how everyone is comparing F2.8 at ISO 1600 of the G7X to F1.7 at ISO 6400 of the LX100 and declaring the G7X the winner. I predict that everyone’s opinion will completely flip flop when the RAW studio samples come out and we compare apples to apples.

"It will actually be interesting to see the RAW photos from the LX100 without the automatic corrections in place. I suspect that the "LEICA" lens will be horrendous."

Sure that is possible as well. It could be acceptable though. The point is that these sample pictures have only shown that the G7X is pretty good in perfect situations where the lighting is great and the subjects are stationary. It also showed that the LX100 is bad if you use a 1/400 shutter speed in low light with a high ISO when you would probably have used ISO 1600 with 1/100 shutter duration in that situation in real life.

If I really wanted to make the G7X look good and the LX100 look horrible I would have taken the images in these two galleries. Thankfully one day Dpreview will give us studio samples to do a true comparison between the G7X and the LX100.

For now all I got from these galleries is that the person shooting the G7X galleries really didn’t want to make it look bad. Stick it at ISO 6400 with a 1/400 shutter speed in a dimly lit bar and let’s see if everyone is still singing the G7X’s praises.

I am not saying that is the only measure of a good camera. However, it seemed to be the one thing that everyone was critiquing the LX100 for and the G7X was given a free pass on that test.

"Third from the end, the front of the motorcycle, is ISO2000."

ISO 2000 in good light with everything blown out. That is a really fair comparison to the dimly lit Bar scene they shot the ISO 6400 images at for the LX100.

Richard Murdey: See, this is about what I expect for a large sensor, fixed zoom compact camera.

A bit of noise, a bit of cruft, but overall some decent detail and all with reasonably natural looking rendition. Perfectly acceptable, in other words. Images you'd be happy with.

The LX100 ... what was going on back there?

The LX100 images were taken to demonstrate its capabilities in the worst conditions. These pictures were taken to demonstrate the G7X’s strengths and to not show any of its weaknesses. Wait for RAW studio samples and then I think everyone’s tune will change.

Whoever, shot these Canon sample photos did a great job selecting scenes that showed the camera’s strengths without demonstrating its weaknesses. The person who shot the LX100 photos. Not so much.

mpgxsvcd: 5 years ago I said that I would one day shoot only 4K video and extract the stills directly from the video. Panasonic made that a reality last week. When Canon does the same I will start to care about the cameras they make.

http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/2577758

If I paid $10,000 for the camera I would expect more than 8 megapixel stills. If I paid less than $1000 for a camera I probably would be looking for something entirely different. The people buying the 1DC are in an entirely different market than the Rebel shoppers.
If they tried this feature in a Rebel it would work if they did it right. They would need 8K RAW for it to really work for Professional Photographer uses. Two entirely different markets and it shows that Canon is incapable of determining what their different users want.
The low end consumer could want the stills from video feature. The High End consumer just wants Ultimate Quality at any cost.

That is a 10,000+ camera. They need to do it in a sub $1000 for it to be accepted by the users who will want to use it. If they put that feature in a Rebel I would be impressed. Until then I will just keep using it on my GH4 and LX100.

This sounds like something a Kamikaze might say. Totally nuts but the only to do is get out of the way of their wrath. You can't reason with crazy.
