Black Box: We've seen ALL kinds of names for image processors. Suffox, Bionz X (Gosh! Doesn't Japanese Word warn them it's difficult to pronounce?), Expeed, DIGIC... Now "DRY ME FOUR"? For crying out loud, hire an ENGLISH SPEAKING marketing company already!

Black Box:
Why? What does it matter?

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II: a quick summary article (535 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sdaniella: for me, the G1X noise hit tolerable limits at ISO 1600 ... intolerable beyond (worse on m43 systems and Nikon 1)

if Canon product rep video claims IQ noise for G1XMkII is better at ISO 1600 than older G1X at ISO 400 ... gives me added interest and impetus to get the MkII ... now that it has a 24mm eq ff fov ... my only misgivings is absence of VASS (vari-angle swivel screen) and extra cost to have evf and a more ergonomic, yet still inadequate, grip ... but IQ of older G1X matched the EOS 60D ... will MkII match or exceed IQ of EOS 70D (even if AF/fps/video cannot?)

will a prosumer PowerShot Pro1X come later with all of the above BUILT-IN !???

hhmmm ...

I really prefer the tilt screen. Much lower profile for street photography. My husband shoots with a Nikon P7700 and I am always wondering when that big flap is going to get yanked off somehow...

I totally agree with this thread so far. Caged and restrained animals are sad creatures. Who do we presume to be, when we assume we can treat them this way? We have to ask ourselves: "how would I like it if I had to be in his place?" A loaded question most will strive to avoid or rationalize.

So true that wildlife photography is infinitely more challenging and rewarding in every way.
