The Sweets Collection leaves a bad taste I my mouth. :-)
In Camera Lab's review they said "I tested the Canon G7X alongside the Sony RX100 III and found for Single AF acquisitions, the G7X proved quicker and more confident under pretty much all conditions."
Since this product is the Tough E-Mount, the original provided by Sony must be the Flims E-Mount. :-)
boinkphoto: My immediate thought was, "And the first time you drop it?"
Note to the New Intern: DON'T touch the lens! :-)
(As a practical matter, anything that expensive must be insured.)
MikeFairbanks: I'm going to move toward real computing tablets that can run regular applications, nut just the crashy ones and filter apps.
My understanding is that Surface Pro can run regular (Windows) applications.
The target audience for this advertising isn't the miniscule echo chamber of Angry DPR Ranters. :-) These folks just love to rant, for the sake of ranting.
I'm not surprised that the nice snake photo was taken by an 11-14 year old boy. Judging by my personal experience, most adults try to avoid snakes. :-)
Sdaniella: Canon Powershot Premium Compact newer "later model" large zoom video (teaser*):
*most have seen a similar (but not exactly same) Powershot G promo video but this has added a bit of Canon 'history promo' covering G1XMkII, G7X, and teaser of new model only shows up at the very end of the video clip (same as screen capture shown elsewhere)
The lens appears to follow pattern of an interchangeable zoom lens, rather than a fixed zoom lens.Sensor size, to keep zoom compact, would have to be smaller, maybe 4/3" sensor.If folks prefer G1X 1.5" sized sensor, then the interchangeable zoom will definitely be a "large zoom" for a Powershot.If the sensor is smaller, like a m43, it will be a model that slots below G1X-series, but above G7X.With an interchangeable "large zoom" compact, with 4/3" (or 2x crop) sensor (18x13.5), it could be an EOS-G mount, and adaptable to EOS-M lenses and EF lenses, too.
@Sdaniella It could be a 1" sensor, with a zoom that's significantly longer than the G7 X. That's my guess.
My guess is that "the later model zoom" uses a 1" sensor, and has a non-interchangeable lens.

Canon estimates that, this year, they will sell 9.5 million compact cameras, and 7.0 million DSLRs.
Not bad, for a company that does everything wrong, and that everyone hates. :-)
The Nikon D750 can't be any good, because it's not in my price range. :-)
I'm going to have to come up with frivolous reasons to criticize these photos. :-)
See Impossibly Childish DPR Ranters. :-)
plasnu: A money wasted campaign from Canon that only boosts the hatred.
The advertising director Canon hired may not understand the reason why so many people hate canon. People hate their arrogant corporate attitude, brainwashing ignorant people as pretending that they are still the best, which is not true any more. Read recent Canon's interview here that full of BS.
I understand that they have to fight with "stealth" negative campaign (probably from Samsung team), but only solution is to change the attitude and to become modest and honest.
"So many people hate canon" that they sell more cameras than any other company. :-)
Canon, how *dare* you make an advertising campaign that I disapprove of! I'm going to rant, and rave, and hold my breath until I turn blue! :-)
It's just an advertising/marketing campaign, not the end of the world. :-)
Look on the bright side. These ads don't feature (eww) Ashton Kutcher. :-)
The "pseudo-outrage" about this advertising campaign is hysterical.
Canon haters continue to rant, and Canon continues to sell more cameras than any other company.
SigmaDude: Canon sees impossible. Sony does it.
Sony did the impossible, when they managed to lose $2.1 Billion in one year. :-)
I really don't understand marketing/advertising people. Does stuff like this branding campaign actually increase sales? I doubt it.
How *dare* DPR take nice looking photos using a Canon camera! :-)
The Canon USA press release:
"Canon U.S.A. Unveils "Canon See Impossible" - A Branding Effort Empowering The Creative Spirit In Customers To Make The Impossible Possible"
It's not even a new product. It's that new box logo, and accompanying marketing theme.
