stevez: I'm really enjoying these superb videos you're producing. Keep it up.
I like the video format, but I'm affraid that a significant part of DPR audience cannot understand native english speaking.Any % on this "issue"?For my part, french native, I have no issue reading any review in here, but listenning is quite a bit harder.Are subtitles a lot of work? I'm affraid they are.
topstuff: To me, it looks like something from the last decade.
I know its got killer AF and the BIF guys will love it, but to anyone who doesn't need the sports/BIF AF capability, its just a big heavy brick with average IQ, IMHO.
"Unless you really need ultra fast AF and the crop factor to shoot BIF or sports, there really is no need for anyone to want this camera."Totally right since this body is made espacially for them! This is not a mainstream body. What wade you think that?
KL Matt: Technically, the sensor rotates around 3 axes and moves along 1 horrizontal plane, but I suppose you could cheat and reference that horizontal plane as the two axes you would use to describe locations on a graph of it (but then again no, because you've already used up both of those two axes, X and Y, for yaw and pitch, so I'd say it is actually cheating to use the same axis twice.)Sigh. Marketing.
Sony (again) is working on this! :)2013 rumor :http://www.sonyalpharumors.com/sr5-there-is-a-sony-camera-to-come-also-for-nikon-and-canon-lens-owners/
2014 patent :http://www.sonyalphaforum.com/topic/19-sony-is-working-on-a-z-shifting-sensor-that-can-focus-with-all-manual-lenses/
For once it's not marketing BS. It's mechanical speaking. In the CNC machines industry, translation motion and rotation motion are seen as two different axis even if the are on the same direction.
Edit : degrees of freedom, that's what i was looking for. Thx Spatz :)
Mike Tunstall: My priority: does it take good pictures? Answer = yes. You can keep all the other stuff.
Very "black or white" vision. But the world is made of many shades of grey...Could you define what is a "good picture", for you at least?For me, the 24mm equiv. shots from the G7X are not "good pictures". And I was waiting for this from Canon since the first RX100 came out! Very disapointed.
maxnimo: I wonder which company will be the first to come out with a large sensor rugged camera. Hopefully before my grandkids die of old age.
I would prefer a big sensor (1" mini.) and high quality, fast fixed lens (equiv. 24/28/30mm). Such a compact body, shockproof and waterproof could be brought anywere without second thought.And you could put it in you jean's pocket without fear of dust! :)
Akpinxit: every second comment says " I don't do pixel-peeping" - that exactly it , why keep pushing 20MP of washed JPGs , if the target audience not even going to open image it's full size ?
I would love to have a SRAW option n this G7X (let's say 10/12MP)!
sssanti: I am disapointed Canon did not include an EVF. I would like to see another version of this camera with an EVF.
Well, I doubt g1x's can produce better hi-iso results than Canon dslr since they share the same sensor technology and same photosites size. Basically a Canon APSC cropped to 1,5".But I never tested one, so i cannot be affirmative.I just had a look to your studio scene tool link.And for me m4/3 (oly EM-1) is on par with apsc at 3200iso, and Sony's 1" lag a bit behind but not that far considering the size gap.I have to admit that A6000's apsc rule them all by a small margin. It's not the disaster announced by few, but a new sensor tech from Canon would be welcomed.
Boky: Is anyone going to miss the truly pocketable size of S - series cameras...? Is Canon going to kill S series? This camera looks good, but I do like S size a lot, purely because I forget I have the camera in my pocket...
maybe you've forgotten the 3rd dimension?
James Wages: So does it have 5-axis image stabilization in VIDEO mode or not?
yes! (see spec sheet at canon us website).
Beckler8: If they can make the same camera (or RX series) with longer but slower zoom lens, I'd prefer that. Not everyone values maximum low-light capability or shallow DOF above all else. Depending on your style, the nearly-useless 3-4x zoom just throws away a world of photo opportunities, esp. with video.
Wait a little : it's coming!http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=22905.0
Biro: I really want to love the LX100. I really do. I'm totally fine with the styling, size, sensor, lens and control interface. What's more, I have the cash in hand and can actually afford it.
But the lack of an integrated flash drives me crazy. The whole idea of the LX100, at least for me, is the have a reasonably sized, grab-and-go all-rounder for daily use. By definition, I don't want to bring along extra bits - whether lenses or flashes.
I'm only asking for something good enough for fill and reasonably close snapshots. It doesn't even have to be a pop-up (although being able to tilt back a pop-up unit for bounce purposes would be nice). Something akin to the flashes on Panasonic travel-zooms would be fine.
I'm not saying that I won't buy the LX100. But while the camera would have been an immediate pre-order with an integrated flash, I am now waiting to find out more about it. And I am seriously considering the Fuji X100T, Sony RX100 III and even the Canon G7X while I wait.
@papa natas :the sony's 1,228,800 dots. are still on a a 3:2 ratio screen with the same 720x480 resolution. They just add a fourth withe pixel to each RGB tri pixel to add brightness whn needed.Resolution and displayed information is exactly the same.
Sure it's looks better on the specs sheet. :)
3200iso is my limit on my EOS M (60d sensor). 6400iso is barely usable... And you want to shoot 12800iso with compacts? For thumbnails maybe, no more...
Is there really someone using iso128000 on these compact cams??Sorry but your point isn't valid.
John McCormack: Is there a 'silent' mode on the G7X? Also, is there an electronic level on the LCD?edit: Yes, I found that there is a level function. It can be seen in this PR video at 2:03: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bV6VRDlfVBQ&app=desktop
electronic level : picture 6
iudex: Considering the fast lens covering big 1" sensor I wonder why couldn´t Canon make an S series compact with brighter lens. If they are capable of producing 24-120mm lens with f1,8-2,8 for 1" sensor, how come they were not able to make the S100/110/120 with small 1/1,7" sensor any brighter than f1,8-5,7. I onwed the S100 and it was a nice small camera, but the slow lens (at telephoto) made me angry; I wasn´t able to lock focus at 120mm anywhere but in bright sunlight. So making a S130 with f1,8-2,8 would breathe new life into this small camera.
I want to agree with you... But would you buy a new shiny S130 at 600+$ price tag?The new G_X lenses are quite complex and then... expensive.
PeterBM: Canon G7X or Canon RX7 ? Canon, a follower of Sony?Exit, the successful interface of (most of) G serie cameras.The best one was those of G12: its fully articulated screen, its set of dials and its menu. Now, a fragile tilting mechanism, a fouling touch screen!What a pity !
One more who spkeak without having tried a Canon touch screen.I was like you before, then I bought one. Now, my S95 is awkward to use.To be fair, now i want BOTH : dials & button for settings kick access AND touchscreen for AF zone selection.On the G7X, you have both : dual dial design, customisable buttons, expo comp dial and tilting touchscreen.
Craig Atkinson: @dpreview Does this camera have stepped focal length option, 28, 35, 50, 80mm equiv as the Sony rx100m3 does?
Also...Sony have just slashed £100 off the m3, so in the UK it's now 599 - a reactive price I assume!
yes, you can assign step zoom to the front dial (as it's already the case on all S series).
brownie314: Cool - at least Canon has one interesting new product to show. This isn't innovative - more like a "me too" product. But still, I like the zoom range and that aperture range. Looks like a nice alternative to the Sony version. Should sell well.
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.
hmmm... no. From the very DPR review, bottom of page 7 : "Use the viewfinder and the number drops to a much less useful 230 shots per charge".
A viewfinder drain more battery than the screen. Even if it's counter-intutive.
