007peter: Beautifully filmed, and a Great "IN-REAL-LIFE" review. I much prefer this kind of IRL review over just listing specs. I think the fixed-compact has mature to a point that it is challenging the NEEDS of having a DSLR or Mirrorless iLC. I think for 90% of the population, this kind of 1" fix camera makes more sense than interchangeable. My only annoyance is the PRICE TAG, pricing more expensive than an entry-level M43 camera like E-PL6 for $299.

If Canon can price this camera toward $300 ~ $400, its a no brainer

In the long run, I think it's inevitable that large-sensor fixed-lens compacts will cut into ILC sales. As a practical matter, many people who buy an ILC will never go beyond the kit lens.

Wow, that's way more compact that if a comparable lens would have been attached to a DSLR. Oh, wait... :-)

Khairil: What? Just look at Nikon's beginner's D3300... Still sleeping, canon?

The launch price of this camera is $100 less than the launch price of the Nikon D3300. (This camera's niche is to be extremely affordable.)

$1,699 for body-only. Mirrorless enthusiasts say that mirrorless cameras cost less to manufacture than DSLRs, but that doesn't seem to be reflected in their prices.

I got this company confused with Ono - maker of the famous Yoko Backpack.

This camera is low spec, because its niche is to be very affordable. The previous version currently goes for $400 on the Canon USA store.

In reply to:

justmeMN: The 2013 Canon 70D DSLR has Dual Pixel AF, so this technology was probably licensed from Canon.

(The 2016 Canon 80D has an improved version of Dual Pixel AF.)

Samsung's press release states that their "image sensor is equipped with Dual Pixel technology that has been reserved for DSLR cameras."

That's clearly a reference to the previously mentioned Canon DSLRs.

saeba77: For me the only problem are the cost of good lens. With 3t0 euro i can buy a very good nikon or canon 1.8 lens....for sony it's not the same

Because the Sony kit lens is bad, CameraLabs recommends using the Sony 16-70mm f4 instead. I checked Sony's web site, and that lens goes for (!) US$1,000.

(Regarding Sony's sales claims.)

The last IDC worldwide ILC market share numbers I could find are Canon 43.3%, Nikon 32.1%, and Sony a weak 13.0%.

$1199 (body only) for shutter shock and bad JPG colors. What a deal.

The leather comes from vegan cows, so it's perfectly acceptable for vegans to buy this backpack. :-)

Now, it's time to have a yummy hamburger for lunch...

In reply to:

Mike FL: "two priorities for future sensors are lower power consumption and increasing processing speed." per Canon.

"future sensors are lower power consumption"? no kindling.

Canon G5X, G7X and G9X use very much the same SONY 1" sensor as SONY RX100s.

Canon and SONY use battery which have very much the same spec; 3.5V, 1250mAh, 4.5Wh.

Here are the Battery life (CIPA):
- All Canons are less than 220 shots
- RX100s are from 280 to 350 shots

Not to mention that RX100s have more processing speed/power which supposedly has higher power consumption. So Canon's problems are much bigger/wider than poor Canon's own sensor + poor processing power.

It is glad to see Canon uses SONY 1" sensor, otherwise Canon G5/7/9X will be ended up with:

- poor IQ
- poor AF system
- poor battery life
- Poor processing power

Let see "increasing processing speed.". By using *current dated" electronics will reduce the battery life further. NO?

Wake up Canon, do not fool users.

Perhaps one battery life factor is the fact that the Sony is too backwards to have a touch-screen on their RX100s. Even the $430 Canon G9 X has a touch screen.
