  • Replied in why?
    Both G1Xs have the pixel density of the 7D and 60D etc.  I'll not speculate on why.  I tend to agree with Howard above.  The image quality was already fantastic for this size camera and they've...
  • Not necessarily the same sensor.  The long running Canon 18 MP APS C sensor that the G1X sensor is based on has gone through a number of iterations since its introduction without any dimensional...
  • It is exactly the same sensor size as the G1X. 24 mm effective on the wide end means you can't have both full height and full width - hence the choice in aspect ratio. Probably a good trade-off to...
  • Interesting, the LCD tilts from both top and bottom.  I wonder if it can be removed and reversed for full closure?  Might not be as bad as I first thought. :-O
  • My sentiments exactly Marco. Sorry to say I'm glad you were wrong in your prediction and that the line will continue. The mk 2 is an improvement assuming the lens and sensor are up to its...
  • Wow, its real then. Nice.  Sorry Marco, but I'm glad you were wrong. ;-) As a happy G1X owner, I welcome the continuation and improvements in the line. If Canon has done their job it looks like an...
  • I agree with Marco.  I think the 70D dual pixel technology will find its way into an EOS M2.  Canon has more investment there with its three M specific lenses. Doesn't mean I won't use and enjoy my...
  • Well, I think troll555 is beyond education on this judging by his condescending posts, but for those who are trying to make a decision regarding the G1X, the DxO data are well worth reviewing. In...
  • I've tested my G1X against much of the current Canon lineup.  It all comes down to the lens you choose on the SLR.  My 7D and SL1 pretty much equal the G1X when using a 15-85 lens.  The 15-85 will...
  • This is exactly my approach, and the X's bayonet adaptor makes this simple and quick.  The ability to take a polarizer is one of the reasons I started with the G series back with the G3.  For...
  • Nice set of images Papillon!  Thanks for posting. I'm just back from a 5 night backpack in one of the canyons of Cedar  Mesa, Utah and I'll echo the praise of the G1X for this purpose.  Just...
  • A couple of other features I really like are the live histogram display which allows you to use the exposure compensation dial to adjust before you shoot.  I believe this feature started with the...
  • Yes, but first make sure you have the AF Frame menu item set to FlexiZone and not Face or Tracking.  Go to the Menu, leftmost group with the camera icon, top menu item AF Frame. If you are in...
  • Good one Marco posting images from a $1400 50 f1.2 L lens ;-)  Not many mirrorless can mount lenses like that.  But seriously I do see lots of folks over on the FM EOS forum posting images using...
  • I can come up with some foibles I'd like fixed in a G2X. The delay and text when switching between Av mode an Tv mode is ridiculous, even old G series didn't do that. The manual focus mode is...
  • that no one has made the connection in this thread to the 70D's dual pixel phase detect AF!  If the 70D works as advertised then a 4/3 version of that sensor will work in the current G1X format...
  • Replied in G1x Sunsets
    Shoot in raw.  Make sure you don't saturate too much - the sun's disk will always blow.  Use Lightroom and work it out from there.
  • Let me be among the first to congratulate you on your acquisition. The price is certainly much more attractive than a year ago last spring when I bought mine. But then I have two sets of great...
  • I've had my G1X for over a year now as a supplement to my 5D2&3 kit.  The G1X is the successor to my G10 and previous Gs as for backpacking, underwater, and general compact travel use.  The image...
