It is not a sarcastic answer. If you don't have the banding (not "bending", unless you are talking about deforming your camera), that means you keep your shadows dark, with no detail in them. Try to raise the shadow detail, and you will see noise and banding.

No, banding is because he used a camera with Canon sensor.

(unknown member): What's the point of a camera without a viewfinder?

Most cameras are used without a viewfinder. I have seen even DSLRs used with rear screen, despite how slow they are in this mode.

AbrasiveReducer: As with all Canon cameras, dynamic range is fine if it's overcast but takes some knowledge to deal with in higher contrast situations. Exposing for a full minute at 800 ISO doesn't seem like a good idea, either. Other than that, it looks like a nice package with a decent sized sensor. I'd like to see a nice holiday rebate but since the original G1X is still in the line at $550 retail, probably not.

I think I have seen the original G1X for $350 or so somewhere.

Sirandar: No matter how good it is, it is obsolete with no micro SD card.

Too bad ... I was interested. If the 64GB one was a reasonable price I might consider it, but you can usually never find those and if 649$ is starting price, the 64GB will be 849$.

My crappy Galaxy S3 with 100GB is still a better phone for me because it is more than quick enough, does everything well enough and I can store all my files, music and pics on it and never sync again unless there is something new I want to put on. And you can get an S3 now almost for free.

64GB in the States is $699.

MikeFairbanks: I just re-read the article and it says they won't be available for a while and pre-orders coming soon. I wish they would stop this trend and, instead, release them the very day (or next day) after announcement. But that's just me.

Why? You prefer to be kept in the dark about an upcoming release for a few more weeks? Then don;t read news.

Tripeiro: I have the Nexus 5 and it was a great value for money purchase. Top end specs at a very affordable price, that was its appeal, even with shady omissions (SD card). Double the price for a similar updated offer? Go away Google, Huawey and LG are still around to offer high-end specs for decent prices.

$649 for a 32GB phablet is still lower than $800 for Samsung Note 4. Of course it is not the same super value as Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 had been.

Jogger: When did everyone start carrying around $800 phones in their pockets.. the new iPhone 6+ is $1100 + taxes.. wtf.

$1100? Where is it? Here in the US it is $649 for 32GB model, $699 for 64GB.
You probably have to thank your government for the extra cost.

0mega: It is a bumper that the new nexus 6 cost more than I wanted, best is to wait a few months that will likely get $50 drop and tax free, I won't go get one right away that included tax will surpass $700 mark. Or just wait till new android L if it can really help improve my nexus 5 battery, the main issue i had with nexus 5 is the horrible battery life can only last 4-6 hours in moderate usage.

Horrible battery life is probably because you use the stock email app (yellow icon) with some mail service which is not optimized for it (yahoo?). Use some other mail app, like Yahoo mail for yahoo account. I know 2 (TWO) people for whom it made a huge difference.

photophile: Still no mention of RAW support! I have had the Nexus 5 for a few months now. Great phone/gadget etc - but less than stellar camera output. Crunches 8MP worth of data down to sub 2MB - with fairly strong detail smearing. Was hoping RAW would offer a bit of headroom to PP my own pics.

Wait for Android 5.0, it is just a few days now...

Kiril Karaatanasov: The Nexus line is going from bad to worse. I have had all Nexus phones to date but just bought Xperia Z3 Dual to replace the Nexus 5. Nexus 6 is no starter except I may get one to use as debugging tool. Why Motorola? Sony, LG and may be HTC or even Huawei would have been better choice... Motorola are proving every year for past 5 years to be the worst Android brand.

What is so bad about it? Seems like a perfect thing for those who want its huge size. Sure, if you want bloatware and no updates (or very late update once et best), you might choose something else except Nexus. If you want low quality and no support, you may even choose Samsung or even Huawei.

Eric Calabros: "Though this kind of shot results in expected sensor noise"
Sorry, I didn't expect that much

Sony 4/3 sensor in most Olympus m43 cameras, Panasonic GH3 and probably Kodak S-1 does not have a noise problem at ISO800. Not at all.
As you can see from that comparison, more than 2 y/o Olympus E-PM2 beats Canon G1X Mk II in every category by a very good margin:

Yes, it is maybe slightly smaller than the crop used in G1X2, but technology matters more.
