On Shooting with the Canon PowerShot G3 X article (233 comments in total)

1. External EVF is ok to keep the size down
2. fps still can accept as to be use for travel
3. Slow Len is biggest problem for this camera
4. 4k is good to have, not the mush as many do not has 4k display yet
5. Price is too high.
Give me 400mm with f4, I will give my money.

KW Phua: A good camera for people use short lens only.
Waiting for someone more innovative for bigger sensor (FF) P&S 15-600 f1.2/f4. I will pay 3k. That help me to keep my DSLR at home. With Dual Pixel AF Dual Pixel ISO.That is my dream camera.

No body know what is light, so we need bigger lens for bigger aperture. So if someone can make small lens with big aperture and long Focus Length, then I call him innovative.

sneakyracer: Sony just launched their sensor tech about 10 years ahead of Canon. Bravo Sony!

When Canon used COMS in 1Ds in 2002, where is Sony. A900 in 2008 and the IQ was bad. It took so many years and money from the Fan to support them till today to fulfil the Fan. Yes, it is a good sensor. Come on Canon, waiting for yours. Not only sensor, good camera.

When joke turns to reality -> Innovative
No meaning to make small camera but the lens still so big.

On Canon PowerShot G3 X: What you need to know article (596 comments in total)
In reply to:

JurijTurnsek: The sad part here is that Canon probably already has a 4K version completed in the lab, along with a integrated EVF version, only to be released as incremental updates next year and the year after that.

Now, if you like to support businesses that take advantage of you like that and charge a pretty penny for the smallest updates, go right ahead. But you are just confirming their sales strategy and don't give them incentive to change.

Same as RX100 Mk1, Mk2, Mk3.....

ManuelVilardeMacedo: Can we still call this a 'compact' camera?

Yes. Try 600mm on the DSLR or mirrorless.
But not packable.

I see many DSLR shooters use the back LCD for shooting. This camera is for them. With the tillable screen, it help to prevent bright sky light. Furthermore it is a touch screen, and become useless if using EVF.

On Readers' Showcase: Martin Kozak article (69 comments in total)

I believe this photographer can take better picture with P&S/iPhone then many people using 16 stops DR camera. Capture the right moment, beautiful artistic picture. He got the skill and fully understand what his gear can do for him.

On Sony rides wave of US Mirrorless sales surge article (732 comments in total)
In reply to:

Photoman: Can you hear your profiles dropping Canon & Nikon??? Will you take mirrorless seriously NOW Canon & Nikon. DSLR's are dying and so are your profits...do you want to be another Polaroid or Agfa?!

Beside the sensor, any maker can make mirrorless. Canon is R&D on the AF. When the time is right I believe they will release Pro-mirrorless. Just hope that I still can use exiting L lens.

For planned shoot DSLR with complete system still my choice. iPhone will take over when DSLR left at home. Until one day EVF catch up with the AF speed, DSLR still will be available. Hope that Dual Pixel type of technology can evol one day and with 8K video, I will shoot video and get the best frame for my still picture. Offcouse with high speed recording and high capacity storage. Save money now, invest wisely. Which maker have higher chance? Keep your eyes open. Don't waste money on toys.

KW Phua: How can this be a DSLR user? Holding one hand, using the rear viewfinder for shot. How to get an sharp image without shake. Even when I use smart phone for shoot, I hold with both hand and not to extend the arm.

I forgot that Rambo firing the GPMG with only one hand.

@HowaboutRAW, totally agree with you at this moment. It is the same when people said Mirrorless is the future of photography.
EVF still not real time, AF tracking still not on par, except sensor.
Photography is not about sensor alone. Is one of the key factors.
Photography is an art, graphic, information, moment, memory.
Thanks
