Suhas Sudhakar Kulkarni: When I read the name "G7X" I wondered why canon is messing up their naming with Panasonic (they have GX7)But then, Canon powershot started using "G" before panasonic Lumix G. So Panasonic must use something else. Otherwise it's confusing!
It's not any different between Nikon D70 vs Canon 70D? D60 vs 60D?

photography is an art , photogrpher must be at the high-end of the morality and positivity .
it's about depth of feelings .
Bravo to Nikon for adding a flip screen!
In the midst of all the moaning and complaining in here, I would like to make my contribution.
NIKON, HOW DARE YOU MAKE A CAMERA THAT DOESN'T DO EVERYTHING! IT DOESN'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO NAVIGATE MY CAR THROUGH TRAFFIC VIA BLUETOOTH! I NEED THIS FEATURE AND I DEMAND IT. NOW!
There. I didn't want to feel left out.
dbo: Regarding battery life just respect basic rule number 1.
1) Always, absolutely always keep a spare battery in your camera bag.2) Always, absolutely always keep a spare memory card in your camera bag.
3) Always, absolutely always remember to bring your battery charger with you in your camera bag.
...or else, it wouldn't matter how many spare batteries you carry with you.
Mark Ma: I'm a Canonite and all my cameras are Canons. However, after comparing this new Canon with Sony RX100 II and RX100 III, I'm leaning toward buying a Sony because of two things: Sony's battery lasts longer (50% longer) (mainly because of the EVF) and Sony's video modes include AVCHD.
Moot points for me. I'd still prefer canon for the image quality.
Iwan33: RX 100 is a gem and has served me almost 2 years now. But honestly I always liked the colors of my Canon cameras, hopefully this is a RX 100 with canon JPEG colors (only shooting JPEG). That it has a brighter lens is the cherry on the pie.
You're not alone. I, too, believe that Sony colors leave much to be desired.
Chris62: In full size we can see strange thing - smaller sesnor cameras Olympus/Panasonic deliver better quailty.
Until you compare it to a full frame camera at full size.
Galbertson: Rockwell states audio in jack for Nikon's own little stereo mic. Will other third party mics also work?
Rockwell also stated he invented aluminum foil. Only the deaf listens to him.
Fuji colors are great when photographing portraits and people. For everything else, it's awful.
Jylppy: Figuring out this in the beginning of my hobbyist-photogapher career was a big "Heureka"-moment for me and the reason I sold off my 4/3 Olympus and bought Canon 5D. Yes, plenty of bulk to carry around, but I finally got the bokeh I was after. Everybody makes their own choices for the reasons important to them, but understanding "Equivalence" is fundamental to not to be fooled by the "F-numbers".
@GreatBustard: This especially applies to amateur landscape photographers.
HeyItsJoel: That's it. I'm going full frame.
I was sold between micro 4/3 and APS-C cameras because of their small footprint. But after reading this, I've decided that anything worth doing in photography is worth doing right.
The thought of having to lug all that heavy equipment around while traveling definitely sucks. But in the end, image quality should not be sacrificed. This couldn't be more important when traveling to a location I will be more likely to go to only once in my life. That means getting it right the FIRST time.
@ nerd2: I was thinking more in the canon/nikon line. Not Sony.
@ mostly: You are wrong.
That's it. I'm going full frame.

JamesInCA: Why would anyone sculpt from marble when they can get the same visual results with fiberglass so much easier?
Why would someone play an actual wood violin when a modern keyboard will make the same sound without all the horsehair and pine sap?
Why make a painting of something when you could just take a picture and use some photoshop filters?
Why would anyone drive a stinking, inefficient, and unsafe car from the 1950s?
Why would anyone sleep in a tent when there's a handy Motel 6 a few minutes away?
I agree. Why would they?
HeyItsJoel: He tried to use a typewriter to pay his taxes online. The IRS is looking for him.
I don't pay England any taxes. We settled all this tax stuff at the Boston harbor before, remember? ;)
Alexander Gardner, credited for taking famous photographs of Abraham Lincoln, came back from the dead looking for this guy. He wanted to take a picture of him with his shiny new full frame DSLR. John Wilkes Booth, conceiling a weapon, decided to join in on the search. His intentions are unknown.
He caused a traffic jam at a major intersection by stopping in the middle of the streeet and posing for the traffic camera. He thought it was a free outside photo booth. Snopes is trying to contact him to verify his stupidity.
