To me it looks like Leica missed a few decades, lol ... i mean look at the back side! It also looks somehow like those old Russian cameras from ... i dont know, 30-40 years ago. Is someone actually buying a camera like that? ... and thumbs for someone who already had it :D
I'm glad those guys dont fly around here :D
Alakarhu, not Alarkahu. ;)
YAY, finally Canon listened to my whises: VAriAngle screen is back and NO lens cap!!! Me want G5X!!!
LiSkynden: Did anyone else notice that Canon moved the good old "vari-angle" screen to their semiPro SLRs and started to use that stupid selfie screen on their advanced P&S cameras?
I asked this a few times before but never got an answer to it: how do you shoot a low angle portrait with the selfie screen?
Bring back the vari-angle screen!!!
- Not true- Not true
1. I always open the fully articulating screen same time i press the power button. This is because i have been using VariAngle so long that its just a routine move. So it doesnt take any longer to activate than what the camera takes to power up.
2. I have VariAngle on my Canon 60D and nope, its not impossible to use your left hand to hold the or use the lens.I would say its more like other way around cause the tilting screen sticks to you stomach, while VariAngle is on the side and the CAMERA is steady against your stomach.
But well, some like mother and some like daughter ;)
Zeegee: Canon is digging themselves a deeper hole with each "new" consumer camera.I switched over to the Lumix G1 ages ago...amazingly it has a swivel LCD and an EVF..........everyone should say a prayer for Canon, they seem to be on a very slippery slope
What about Nikon s9900? Looks really good but only thing that worries me is the f3.7 lens...
Duckie: Looks like a painting from a museum! Wonderful!
I was just gonna say that :D
Olympus brings its Air lens-style connected camera to US ... but not to us?haha. :P
Im not over reacting. Try to turn the camera to portrait position, and now flip out the tilt screen ... now do a low or high angle shot with it...! Its same as if it would be fixed.
Its a trend, and i hope it passes.
Yeah, and i am seriously looking at Nikon p7800 at the monet ... me, who owns at least 6 Canons :D

LiSkynden: Starts to look like back in 2004 ... Canon PowerShot G6 lol. Howcome its so bukly???
Sorry, I noticed only now that G3X is a superzoom camera :O I mean 24–600 mm ... doesnt look that bulky anymore :DI thought G3X was just a new model from G1Xmk2 ...
Starts to look like back in 2004 ... Canon PowerShot G6 lol. Howcome its so bukly???
LiSkynden: Just asked my wife "do you know what Surface is" ... she satrted to explain what surface means in our language, lol. So I asked "do you know what Microsoft Surface is" ... she said "no i dont".
I Would say Microsoft did their Surface commercing really badly.
Actually Papi61, i think my wife knows who Egon Schiele is was, but i didnt, lol. She also knows iPad and GalaxyTab.
Surface is just not "sexy" enough, for women to know what the hell it is.
Thanks ljmac , thats exactly what i meant.

I may be stupid but why does the lens have to be that big even thoguh only a small amount of it is showing? This was already in the previous model, but i dont get it. Looks kind of weird and stupid to have that big "lens" but the actual lens seems to be really small, ... why is this?
LiSkynden: Looking at that one pic it looks like it has a "selfie" LCD YAY!!!
OF course not. I hate the new selfie LCD trend!
Looking at that one pic it looks like it has a "selfie" LCD YAY!!!
LiSkynden: I dont believe it... again another stupid selfie LCD camera! First every camera brand ditched the good old vari-angle screen and now everyone puts on this stupid selfie LCD???
They have their smart phones for that. They dont buy bulky cameras with selfie LCD, helloo!
I wasnt talking about Panasonic only. Canon G7X, Samsung NX mini ... i bet there will be more soon.
And "bulky" i meant comparing to a mobile phone, that they carry around everywhere anyway, so why would they take a camera with them.When Canon released their first selfie camera, everybody was laughing ... what was it again ... Canon PowerShot N. now every brand wants to have at least one.
And i am not a dramaqueen, lol ...This is only because i want the vari-angle screen back :(Oh and i carry my BULKY Canon 650IS around :D
