I disagree. I wouldn't buy it if it has a touch screen.
All photographers are not working in studio or preparing photos for hours.
When travelling, walking, hiking, you often cannot keep your hands clean enough for a good use of touch screen.

There are as many ways of using a camera as there are photographers.

ddtwenty: why don't just put 24p to the 4k resolutions?

It will make a lot more value to this camera.

Why 24p is better than 30p?

PeterBM: Still waiting "my" good camera:
- compact with large sensor
- good fixed lens, min range 28-135, possibly more
- max aperture 2.8, possibly better
- overall good features (photo quality, responsiveness, focus accuracy, ...)
- and absolutely a fully articulated screen

Stylus 1 has a tilting screen. For "my" use, it has 2 drawbacks, versus a fully articulated one:
- more fragile,
- screen is not protected when camera is off, in the bag

It's not only a question of more and more, it's mainly a question of choice and trade-offs. If GX7 had a fully articulated screen and no touch screen, i would buy it quickly to replace my rather used G11. Unfortunately, after its successful G serie (those with this kind of screen), Canon prefer copy Sony. Today, I have nothing to replace my G11.

May be my specs are not complete: F2.8-F4.0 for a 28-135mm would be ok. I don't think it is so much far from the F1.8-F2.8 with 24-100mm of the G7X and even of the F2.0-F3.9 with 24-120mm of the G1XII which have a larger sensor.
For travelling and hiking, tilting and touch screen are bad.
The most approaching camera of my wish is the Panasonic FZ1000, just a bit too much heavy and big (I don't need a viewfinder)

PeterBM: Canon G7X or Canon RX7 ? Canon, a follower of Sony?
Exit, the successful interface of (most of) G serie cameras.
The best one was those of G12: its fully articulated screen, its set of dials and its menu. Now, a fragile tilting mechanism, a fouling touch screen!
What a pity !

We are not in this pricing range. Nor with a plastic design.

In reply to:

ThePartaker: The screen tilts up and down. It also has a 3 step neutral density filter built in.
There also seems to be provision for a filter attachment and teleconverter to increase the lens reach but one is not shown.
For details see: http://www.canon.co.uk/For_Home/Product_Finder/Cameras/Digital_Camera/PowerShot/powershot_g1x_mark_ii/?WT.ac=SS_G1XMarkii_UK#p-accessories5

Thank you! Thank you also yabokkie! Why DPR don't precise it? Am I the only guy looking for precise use of articulated screen?
Now I think this camera is close to the camera I wish.

Direct link | Posted on Feb 14, 2014 at 08:30 UTC

@DPR: It would be interesting you precise in your specs if screen tilting is only one way, upward or downward, or both. I was interested by Sony RX100, but when at shop I saw that tilting was only upward, I gave up.

What a pity!
Many years I am waiting such a camera: good all-around compact with a large sensor and with a swivelling screen . I said it when GX1 came that I will hope a good GX2 to come. It's here but swivelling screen disapears.
Canon prefers copy Sony with its RX100. Selfy is so important!

Please, can it tilt downward to shoot above heads ?

Manufacturers of cameras do not provide references of sensors?

Direct link | Posted on Oct 12, 2012 at 08:22 UTC as 20th comment

I do not catch. Is it a new sensor for future cameras or is it used in to-day cameras as the P7700?
