Aimed squarely at the "prosumer" marketplace the G1 enters the arena as a direct competitor to the Coolpix 990, Sony F505V and Olympus C-3030Z. Canon have listened, the G1 supports CF Type II (for IBM Microdrive) has a flash hotshoe and (Pro 70 users will love this) and flip out and twist LCD screen for viewing at any angle, and there's RAW mode images too..
|Canon PowerShot G1||Top view, note the inner mode dial and outer record / off / play dial. Top mounted hotshoe, Zoom lever surrounds shutter release. Nice big LCD readout on the top of the camera.|
|Here's that lovel flip-out and twist LCD we first saw on the Pro 70, coated with a special anti reflective layer. Rear controls seem logical enough, plenty of control over camera settings without having to navigate LCD menus.||Anyone else think this would just topple over on its own? The G1 with Canon's new 420EX speedlight, it'll take the 220EX, 380EX and 550EX too.|
