on paper i looks like a very good camera.Panasonic is a very good company..but for a compact camera it is too big..and for a DSLR its too small especially if you use big lenses..
to really test the sensor you need to take some photos of kids running arround insidethe home at night in low light condition..
Zeisschen: Even Canon's speedlights look like a product from the 90s
are you form the 1800`s..it sounds so
its not an improvement over Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III.the images looks soft at best...
would love to see how sony sensor will perform in high ISO low light..for example Candle light kids birthday while the kinds are running arround
some argue its too expensive compare to nikon or canon lenses..this could be right..both canon and nikon lenses are very good for general use..but if perfection is needed then you look for these lenses like Zeiss or Leica..
there is a reason why they say: you buy what you really need.
Picturenaut: Just a comment after using a 7DII for a while now. If the 5D's noise performance is about similar to the 7DII's, then no real photographer would go beyond ISO 12800 (or much less!). So I don't find Canon's decision to cap ISO sensitivity at ISO 6400/12800 in the 5D's "odd", as Barnaby Britton states here, but wise. Higher ISO's would be just a marketing gag, and that's not needed for a pro/prosumer market product. Nobody would invest in such extremely high resolving (studio/landscape) cameras to shoot them with ISO settings that kill all this resolution advantage.
Lol not just high ISO..thats so yesterday..high ISO at candle light kids party running arround..
Stollen1234: Amazing entry Camera..thank you Canon. for the price you get a lot of super features.most important the image quality..if you take a look at the Photos they are almost better than both Nikon and Sony FF cameras.
Omega3 and magnesium really..Whats your drugs?

photoaddict: I bought Nikon 5500 for this reason. I am switching from Canon to Nikon. I am blown away with the better image quality on Nikon.
But rest assured, if you expose the shot correctly with either one of those brands, you'll not notice anything different.
However, when it comes to pushing EV in software, that's when the difference becomes apparent. NEF stays much cleaner than CR2 when EV is set to more than 2.
ttran88: Is Canon trying to get out of the camera business?
no..maybe you need to try harder to promote the other brands to increase their market share??
AbrasiveReducer: It's like a Toyota Corolla.
you dont start photography with a Rolls Roys..do you..
Corolla is a good car
nikkornikon: I got a message from the President of Canon, Mr. Akihiro Canon and he wanted me to tell you all...If you don't like this camera, and it's over the top price, and no 4k, and our rather Old Dusty Sensor..or any up to date features on other cameras, then by all means, move along to Sony. Thanks...Mr. Akihiro Canon.
good to know..still getting only a canon
eddie_cam: Max. 1/2000 sec. at f/2.8? No 4K? Only 5.9 fps? No built-in EVF? Good luck with that, Canon!
this camera will sell very well:)1/2000 would cover more than 90% of shooting style taken with these types of cameras..EVF is not that important..no 4K , well i bet you dont have a computer or TV to take advantage of the 4K..only5.9? well its speedy enough almost like DSLR
janist74: "get close to the action" at 600mm without EVF you really need some kind of slow-mo action to be able to get close/follow. But for sure the Canon name will sell the camera... the questions is when we see Canikon gowing down like e.g. Nokia due to their ignorant/idealess strategy. (For this preis you get an Oly E-M5 with 75-300, what for sure is a bit bigger, but no comparison in functionality.)
And few more bucks and i will get a DSLR..few more bucks and i will get a FF one.. Few more bucks and i will get a medium camera..few more bucks and i will get a leica..few more bucks and you might get a life
ManuelVilardeMacedo: Can we still call this a 'compact' camera?
is it really important if it is a compact or not?? how about to find out if you really need this camera..
chrispicasso: Canon must be head holding & wailing when sony announced those three cameras last week - inspiration has left the house.
TheDevil: I think when cameras get this small they don't need an EVF, especially if they have a touch screen. My G7X works fine outdoors, the screen is bright and visible. The touch screen makes it pretty intuitive to pick your focus points. I also like how the screen flips up vertical like the G7X.
no need for EVF..
lets hope its a good sensor..would love to know how it will performe when taking photos of kids playing at a candle light dinner :)
RStyga: Leica's new fixed lens camera is too bulky and too expensive, and no EVF of FF sensor will compensate for it. An A7II would be a more prudent choice. But Leica's target group of victims is immune to these arguments so happy ending for all..
no..not all are really interested in the image quality..some trolls are just interested in BS and sadly they have no lifes...
i think its a great camera..i like especially the wifi and NFC..its great for posting photos to facbook:)
