Tonkotsu Ramen: At that price...... it will not sell well..
Yeah, but Motorola isn't Samsung or Apple
tkbslc: I'm not seeing much noise difference between the G7X and the LX100 when compared at the 8MP "print" preset. Certainly not the 1 stop you'd expect based on the sensor sizes.
Surprisingly, the LX100 seems to have sharper corners vs the G7X, despite fears to the contrary based on the sample photos.
RX100 M3 seems to be lagging behind both by a hair.
But all things aren't equal when you are viewing the 1" sensor images at 50% higher magnification. Noise is magnified, too.
cpkuntz: Typical Canon dull colors, plastic skin, mushy details, and blown highlights. In 2012 these sensors were badly beaten. Now they are embarrassing.
You can criticize many things about Canon's sensors, but it's pretty well accepted they have great color and skintones. That's not blind defense, just listing a key strength. Many Nikon photographers will admit the same.
I'd wager if you did a survey, you'd find Canon colors and skintones at the top.
I don't see a "considerable" difference at all. Not at the same output size.
Sidath Senanayake: I think my RX100 (version 1) does considerably better than the samples here. And that's with looking at 20MP at 100% rather than 12MP.
I was hoping that the image quality in this camera would justify it's noticeably larger size (compared to the RX100 series). Sadly it looks as though that isn't the case :(
"Nor do I care, a jpeg out of a 5 year old Canon Rebel will be better than a jpeg of the same shot out of an iPhone."
Exactly my point, so why vilify JPEGs from nice cameras? And I never mentioned iphones.

Have you checked all those cameras to see if they are set to raw?
HowaboutJPEG since that's what many people like shooting on holiday?
Richard Murdey: See, this is about what I expect for a large sensor, fixed zoom compact camera.
A bit of noise, a bit of cruft, but overall some decent detail and all with reasonably natural looking rendition. Perfectly acceptable, in other words. Images you'd be happy with.
The LX100 ... what was going on back there?
Uh, what? Half of those LX100 were shot in gorgeous scenery on a sunny day. If anything dpreview lobbed the LX100 a slow pitch.
JeanPierre Thibaudeau: These pictures samples have the best color rendition I have seen in a while. So natural, so true to life without having too much saturation.
Looks like a winner for many of us.
That's why many of us keep shooting Canon despite everyone telling us our sensors are unusable.
mpgxsvcd: If I really wanted to make the G7X look good and the LX100 look horrible I would have taken the images in these two galleries. Thankfully one day Dpreview will give us studio samples to do a true comparison between the G7X and the LX100.
For now all I got from these galleries is that the person shooting the G7X galleries really didn’t want to make it look bad. Stick it at ISO 6400 with a 1/400 shutter speed in a dimly lit bar and let’s see if everyone is still singing the G7X’s praises.
I am not saying that is the only measure of a good camera. However, it seemed to be the one thing that everyone was critiquing the LX100 for and the G7X was given a free pass on that test.
Of course it must be intentional sabotage to make the Canon look better! You caught them!
Cane: Pixel peeping a p&s and complaining about the results is like whining on the Mini Cooper car forum about its towing capacity. I mean really, what do you want? And the fanboy comments in this thread are epic. I have been laughing for 10 minutes.
And I saw a trailer not attached to any vehicle parked on the side of the road!
Wait, what were we arguing again?
BarnET: Last time I saw a article like this on DPR.It was a pathetic Indian photo contest.Wonder what the disappointing news will be this time.
I think some people would be the most disappointed if Canon actually released something impressive.
Ramesh: It was mentioned in "Canon Rumors" that the campaign originated in following IP addresses 22.214.171.124 , 126.96.36.199,both of which are hosted on the same server as Phaseone.com!. Probably canon is entering MF by buying Phase One!
Both of those resolve to Dynect redirector, which is just a DNS management and stats service used by hundreds or probably thousands of companies.
FBoneOne: They sold the company to Sony :-)
Sony doesn't have any money, so that would fit with the impossible theme.
mpgxsvcd: I seriously don’t get what they are trying to say. It really sounds like their slogan means they see everything as impossible. It almost sounds like their big news is that they are giving up. That what they are trying to say is they realize that everything is impossible.
Something must be getting lost in translation here because that is the single worst advertisement I have ever seen. The “So Called Experts” includes Dpreview. Are they seriously calling out Dpreview after their rep absolutely bombed that interview?
Canon has lost their minds.
Yeah, I kind of read it like that, too.
"We only see impossible" Sounds like they can't see any way to accomplish anything.
Potemkin_Photo: Canon buys ALL the remaining camera companies so that they can dribble out warm-overs at Photokina for the next 100 years and raise prices 25% with each upgrade.
Might be nice. Then we could all get back to taking photos.
LoganVii: Lowering prices, BIG TIME!
They just did that, actually
rrr_hhh: I don't get it at all : may be because I'm not a native English speaker ? But really, I would be hard pressed to translate any of these sentence into my own language.
I mean : one can launch a teaser without telling anything about the subject/object coming, but why on earth making such un-understandable statements : which image of Canon do you think they to are offering to their customers ? What I get from it us just that Canon isn't able to communicate, not even at the symbolic level in order to create a positive image of the brand.
Plus, given the avalanche of negative comments targeting those who don't think Canon is able to see the impossible, well, I just feel aggressed/insulted.
Talk about a communication fiasco...
The whole point is to get people thinking about Canon for a few days while the counter drops to zero. It's creating interest by being so vague that you are forced to imagine.
The risk is that if you announcement doesn't end up being good enough to warrant that kind of imagination, then people feel cheated and misled. So it better be good.
