Who's running this country anyway? Strip off another freedom, add another fee. Enough with the nanny state.

No RAW files = loser. Limited manual control = loser.

Far better off buying a used Canon G-series camera.

On article Canon PowerShot G1 X Review (16 comments in total)

I've been wanting this camera since it was announced. I'm primarily a DSLR shooter, and FF at that. I also have owned a G6 and currently G10 and S110. So, I'm pretty familiar with where this camera fits in and what a step it is for Canon to take.
I just bought a used version at a very nice price so will be trying it out in the near future.
I would have rated the camera a little higher, based on my past experience with Canon and reports I've read from reviews and owners. Particularly, Optics and Performance would have got a couple ticks up in my estimation. I think a 79 or 80 would have been appropriate -- being practically in a category of its own: attached zoom, large sensor, compact camera.
It won't be a camera for everyone, true. But if you want better IQ than P&S and use it as a second camera to your DSLR for quick grab shots and take-anywhere convenience, you should be well served! :)

Most annoying ad campaign -- at least for 2013. I wish we had Razzies for ads.

JohnMatrix: two questions:
1. why would you want to do this? (the end result is quite annoying to watch IMO).
2. why is this even 'news'?

Pierre -- Amazing, and very exciting to see how you capture the band in action. Nice still shots! I really appreciate your remarks here in the forum too. Love the punk/grunge scene, thanks. What ISO were you shooting the two cameras at? Thanks for the insight. Jim

Awful, biased reportage! Leave Nikon, gun owners and hunters alone.

On article Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? (1507 comments in total)

Best for me is the 5D3. It helps drive down existing prices for used Canon full frame bodies. It made a 1Ds3 affordable for me at $2300. Great!
