Michael Jardine: I'm entertained by the fast and furious flurry of negative comments here. Personally, I think we're seeing the beginning of the end of the DSLR.

I'm entertained you even think they are in the same category of customer.

On Canon PowerShot G3 X: What you need to know article (595 comments in total)

There's a lot to like about it, but the price and omission of a viewfinder and 4K is going to be a sticking point vs the competition.

vroger1: As an old time Leica photographer it is my sole opinion (I say sole because so many will disagree) if you don't have a viewfinder- you are a snapshooter no matter how much time you spend in post processing. VRR

"It's only a photo if you use wet plates." That's what my pappy used to say.

Sdaniella: this is the first Powershot G series that has most of the features ALL INCLUDED I've wanted, except minor points (tripod mount not in line with lens centre), in a long while.

Powershot G3X:
1) ES-LV w/full mini-EOS-1 like dual controls (finally!)
2) VASS Vari-Angle Swivel (Forward) Screen (or MATS: Multi-Angle Tilt (Forward) Screen)
3) Sensor larger than previous generation sub 1" sensor Powershot G/Pro1
4) 24mm eq.ff.fov builtin starting WA Zoom
5) Minimum 1080p video (Manual Exposure capable; like EOS FF LV dSLRs)
6) Minimum 5x Zoom (it has 25x)
7) tripod NOT centred with lens :\

My old Sony DSC-R1:
1) ES-LV w/full mini-EOS-1 like dual controls (*smile*)
2) VASS Vari-Angle Swivel (Forward) Screen (*smile*)
3) APSC Sensor larger than previous generation sensor Powershot G/Pro1 :)
4) 24mm eq.ff.fov builtin starting WA Zoom :)
5) NO VIDEO!!!??? (*boo*) :(
6) Minimum 5x Zoom :)
7) tripod centred with lens (ideal)

now, if only I could get all of it right in an FF
only asking for JUST 8

Hopefully not much, because nobody is buying any of it.

PazinBoise: Man I love my fellow camera/photography enthusiast as many of their sentiments are the same...

Customers: We want new products that do great things!

Camera companies: Alright here you go!

Customers: Bah! This is dumb why wouldn't I just this already existing that I was complaining about last week for being old hat!

**Though I will note that the Sony A7rII is probably the only product announced where the overall sentient did not reflect this general attitude.

Amen, brother.

Thank you so much!

I'm going to pretend you aren't this ignorant.

In reply to:

adengappasami: 599. AM i reading it right. And did they think about how frequently apple changes that charger port or connector port in that phone.

But again if you can buy the phone and watch, 599 is not a big dea.

quote: "The Iphone used the 30 pin connector from 2003-2012"

iPhone didn't exist until 2007.

Nobody mentioned iPod.

Apple just killed all the ports on their macBook for USB-C, after trying to convince everyone that Thunderbolt was the future. For all we know, iPhone 7 has USB-C

Seems like they missed an opportunity by not also including wi-fi. I get the benefit of direct connection, but wi-fi would open it up to more platforms as well as provide more creative use options on the iphone.

In reply to:

jp_eagle: the connection to the phone should use cable. it would be more flexible and convenient to take a shot.

Lightning extension cables exist. So you could rig something up.

Might want to check your iPhone dates. 2003 was palm pilot and Nokia days.

The DxO Score published for this camera is highly suspect and even moreso when the company scores their own product.

tkbslc: The X100 series has delivered on this camera's exact goal for several years now. Not sure what the fuss is about.

As long as you realize you are only paying for luxury, I guess that is OK.

In reply to:

tkbslc: Pricing is a little ambitious given the competition from Panasonic.

Lx100 and fz1000 will definitely be in the minds of anyone considering these two cameras, so I think price is very relevant.

In reply to:

ttran88: Sony is the only camera maker that wants our money. I seriously don't even know what to buy from Nikon or Canon any more.

The Catch 22 is that Canon and Nikon are the ones selling the lenses you'd want to use.

Maybe Canon and Nikon can send Sony some info on how to update lenses.

You had me fooled into thinking this was a compact mirrorless body until image 9.
