Having bought G1X - and realised the only advantage was the articulating screen - I sold it within 2 months.
The Macro was awful and there was a HUGE time lag from taking a photo to seeing it on screen.
The G16 is a DREAM to use on the other hand! - and the full HD 1080/60 is sweet.
Great - but only 1 mem card slots! :(
Nice specs, this is well worth upgrading to.
Would be the camera of the year if it had a flash!!
Could have been done with a Cann EOS 5d Mk3, Nikon D800......get my point? I have saved myself over £50k plus KIT? - not that I ever had the money for it anyhow!
ChrisKramer1: Remember the macro capability - small sensors do have advantages.
100% spot on here - people need to know this
i bought and returned the G15 for a G1X - Why?Articulated screen, larger sensor, but I found the G15 still has awful noise on photographs and HD video above 800 ISO (like the G12 I had before that).
The only awful thing now I find about the G1X - Macro close up photography is impossible which is heartbreaking.
Now I use my Nokia Lumia 920-which seems to take better photos than the G1X!
I returned teh G15 last week and swapped with G1X awaiting delivery today. The articulated screen is a great invention -Is Canon pushing buyers to the G1X for the articulated screen? - looks like it.
The video quality is improved on G15, but once again, a lot of noise above even 400 ISO - especially video footage in HD - The same happened with my G12. It must be due to the small sensor? It has more video features than my old G12 - 90% of them never used. Also, the G15 feels very rough, plasticky and cheap compared to the solid G12. Are these camera's weather sealed??
I hope the G1X fares better - or I will be dumping Canon for compacts.
No USB 3.0?
The articulated screen is a fantastic feature on my G12.The awful performance at anything above 600 ISO os a not so fantastic feature on my G12
my Konica Minolta 7d did this - (5MP and over 10 yrs old!)
