Had a play with G1X - Current G series owners will love it

I had a play with a G1X on the Canon stand at SWPP in London over the weekend.

First impression is that its significantly larger than the G12 but we already know that, which is fine - get an S100 if not.

If offers nothing more though than the current G series aside from the potential sensor performance.

For me it didnt feel responsive whilst zooming and just like the current G cams there is no real control on the zooming length - just zoom till it looks right.

AF appeared usual - a little slow although i was indoors.

The viewfinder was standard G series.

So thats why I'm saying current owners will love it if they are after larger image sizes and low light performance (maybe). But for those wanting that mini DSLR type responsiveness and optical quality you may well be looking at the wrong camera.

A perfect camera for those perfect families perhaps, house, job, 2.5 kids, SUV and a G1X.

Yes it was a bit dull. Nice to see but a bit dull.

The 1DX was a nice thing to play with BTW lol
