It's not a camera for me but it would be fun to play with. Some clever people will get some cool shots out of it.
adhemar: Oh my, oh my, a compact 24-600mm and a 1" sensor. And quite bright, I am sure. The laws of physics have stopped applying.
But only for fixed lens cameras. Isn't that weird?
Only one lens mas to be mapped rather than account for all lenses that would fit that camera. Maybe I am wrong, but that seems easier.
Not quite the camera for me. Although this combined with a G7x and an SLR, would make a nice trio, depending on the need. I do hope the G17 is somewhere between this and the G7x.
With a fixed lens they can adjust for the optical aberrations with software more easily.
Leaving a viewfinder off shows Canon is not serious. A point and shoot without viewfinder is fine, to save cost and size. No ILC will ever be truly small especially when carrying an alternate lens or external flash. Why not make it a tiny bit larger and include an EVF?
Lack of a view finder is serious error. There are some great enthusiast grade all in one cameras out there with no view finder. No ILC is ever going to be super small or pocketable especially if you carry an alternate lens. Canon should have made the camera a tiny bit larger and added EVF.
Stollen1234: Is this a new trend? It looks like Canon is producing new cameras for specific kind of photography. Canon 7D II for wildlife birding and sports...the new 5DS for studio and landscape....
Is this really a good idea?
I think so.
It keeps coming back
I wonder how many they sold. My guess is very very very few. Rich people can sometimes (often?) be tacky but seldom that dumb.
How could there be even one buyer for that thing?
Wonderful news. There is no downside to this, nobody is taking your cell phone or DSLR away. It's great to have options. Film is an excellent learning and creative tool.
Battersea: Fuji seems to know what photographers really want.
That's what I thought, after I posted. ;-)
I am not a Fuji user (yet) but I love their cameras, they seem to design for real photographers.

Sony continues to be innovative. I still have not fallen in love with any of their cameras but I do like many aspects of most of their cameras.
Nice, artistic. Great vision.
Arpad Lukacs: Can we just agree that these are very beautiful images, but are not photographs.
What are they, if not photographs?
Beautiful design. Practical design. Seems very well thought out.
Great to see London photos again. Seems to be a really nice lens.
