Cameras displaying the Likea brand name are also pretty suspicious. -jk

Hmmm. Another benefit of large-sensor compact cameras.

These tripods are small, but carrying a table around everywhere isn't very convenient. :-)

Whitesands: The fuji is an excellent camera even before the firmware and is the top mirrorless out there...It's strange but some folks that own other brands attach their ego to the camera they own and when they hear stories of nikon and canon full frame shooters selling everything to go with the Fuji X-T1 they strangely get jealous or envious or something and then they troll and attack...

Yes, everyone is jealous of the brand of camera that you own - LOL.

I wish the price was as "compact" as the camera. :-)

(It has a 1" sensor, but costs more than many APS-C DSLRs.)

Yesterday, I saw another television ad for Samsung washing machines. When people think of Samsung brand, that's the kind of thing they think of, not cameras.

Samsung lacks brand identity in the camera sector. The notion that Samsung is going to somehow overtake Canon/Nikon is hysterical.

This lens is impossible, magical, innovative, revolutionary, groundbreaking... :-)

This opinion piece includes an impossible amount of hyperbole. :-)

forpetessake: Sony is soon going to make Canon a third party lens manufacturer.

With the introduction of the a7R II, Sony's ILC market share may skyrocket from it's current 11%, all the way up to 12%.

"I couldn't help but feel like a kid in a candy shop"

There was no candy for people waiting for an updated (more affordable)Sony APS-C camera. (a6100? a7000?)

Every company claims to listen to their customers. That's a standard business-speak cliché.

That said, Sony is doing some good things.

"In terms of noise reduction we’re learning a lot from our competitors about the best way to do it. We need to learn more. And color reproduction, too."

It's nice that Sony has acknowledged these problem areas, and is working on them.

Mirrorless enthusiasts like to point out that mirrorless cameras are smaller than DSLRs. So what? Not everyone is obsessed with camera size.

The Canon SL1/100D demonstrates that DSLRs don't have to be particularly big. It's body is 10% narrower, 3% shorter, 10% thicker, than an Olympus OM-D E-M1.

The Canon T6i/750D and Nikon D5500 aren't exactly huge, either. They are, however, big enough to have decent ergonomics.

In reply to:

justmeMN: In the long run, I suspect that large-sensor, fixed-lens, compact cameras will become increasingly popular. Many/most people who buy ILCs never go beyond the kit lens, so they don't benefit from the ability to change lenses.

@brendon1000: Clarification - By fixed-lens I meant non-interchangeable zoom lens.

On Canon PowerShot G3 X: What you need to know article (565 comments in total)

Two possible reasons that Canon may have wanted the EVF to be optional, rather than built-in.

Cost/Price: It's already expensive. With the addition of a built-in EVF, the price would be even higher, decreasing sales.

Buyer Experience: People upgrading from a smartphone or low-end compact camera have never used a viewfinder, and probably wouldn't miss it.

They may not be convincing reasons, but they are reasons nonetheless. :-)
