That's not my job, its canon's job, what I am saying is that it would be no good for me as I use one camera and it must do everything.

After half a century of photography I haven't found it.

When you do, please be sure to let DPReview know.

I should have added, 'that I require' just as you do need to shoot in the dark a lot, so need a larger sensor as in the G1X II .

That cameras that I can announce here is the two I own, the SX260 and IXUS 255.

So I agree that it does need to suit the owners needs, and maybe it would have offended less people if I had not stated in this thread that the G1x II does not meet my needs. Posts cannot be removed once said.


Well said Brian. Yes, I think all cameras must be compromises and all any of us can do is look for the compromises, and the aesthetic characteristics, that best suit us.
