On Canon PowerShot G7 X Review preview (412 comments in total)
In reply to:

veroman: Why no viewfinder and/or no hot-shoe for an external EVF????

The same reason there is no hot shoe of viewfinder on the Canon S120.

On Canon PowerShot G7 X Review preview (412 comments in total)

Strange. In Camera Labs review they state "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."

These can't be pro lenses, because they aren't white. :-)

Olympus just announced more financial losses for the Imaging division.

I guess they are going to cut costs by selling empty tubes, rather than actual lenses. :-)

A mirrorless camera in a camera bag is just as convenient/inconvenient as a small DSLR in a camera bag.

Just cover the entire body of the camera with something like skateboard grip tape. :-)

rybu: Does anyone know how many of the posters on these forums are Canon or Nikon employees? There's a lot of "pushing a message" from uninformed people here.

Take off your tin foil hat.

From a marketing standpoint, the look of the original G7 X emphasizes pocketability, like Canon's S120 series.

For a complete system, Olympus need an empty camera body to go with those empty tubes. :-)

Andreas Voigt: Empty tubes? Oh boy, looks like the release of those lenses is far away. It's the same stuff they had on display at Photokina... I was hoping to get the 7-14 before next spring.

The depicted lenses are pre-pre-pre-production. :-)

"Has received an invitation from Sony Electronics to join the program."

Sony has sent an invitation to the one professional photographer that uses a Sony camera. :-)

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! :-)

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*):

http://www.canon.nl/assets/videoplayers/video.html?bctid=3785004121001

(Canon NL)

*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.

hhmmm...

@Sdaniella It could be a 1" sensor, with a zoom that's significantly longer than the G7 X. That's my guess.
