On article Meet the Canon PowerShot G1 X III (327 comments in total)

Making an APS-C compact is not easy. If Canon made the zoom faster or longer, people would complain that the lens is too big.

In making an APS-C compact that includes a zoom, Canon did something that Fujifilm X100F, Ricoh GR II, and Nikon Coolpix A didn't. They should get credit for trying something different, rather than just following the APS-C compact crowd.

This camera will get the coveted DPR "Overpriced Award". :-)

ofquiet: Dammit, knock it off with all the EVFs on everything! Seeing someone make an updated small (pocketable) camera would be so refreshing at this point. We can't be stuck using the Sony RX100 for the rest of eternity. C'mon.

*And yes I know most people just use their cell phones these days, but if you've ever tried to use one in a challenging situation you should realize the very real limits of it. Not everyone is just shooting daylight selfies and lattes.

I think the Canon G9 X Mark II is the most pocketable 1" sensor camera on the market.

I'm not a fan of a high-price / high-margin / low-volume pricing strategy.

I wonder how many units they estimate they can sell at this price. I would think that unit sales would be really, really, low.

Instead of this, I wish Canon would have given their G5 X a simple Mark II /DIGIC7 upgrade.

Rooru S: People are saying that they would prefer a X100F over this camera... I do wonder...is 24mm f/2.8 at the wide end of a lens that zooms all the way to 75mm really that bad compared to 23mm f/2 FIXED FOCAL LENGTH lens that cannot zoom at all for obvious reasons? Or they're just complaining because the lens is f/5.6 at the long end?

All I see is a really compact APS-C camera that has more functionality than a X100-series for a similar price.

@CCD FTW: "More zoom doesn't = more functionality"

The last time I tried to "zoom with my feet" I ended up standing in a lake. :-)

stevo23: One ring to rule them all. It "beats" all previous cameras in this category in image quality - 5DSR, A7RII, D810. But then Nikon has been improving everything steadily unlike Canon who feels it acceptable to slip backward from one version to the next from time to time. (6DII) And notice that DPR is comparing it to the Fuji Medium format camera (GFX) in the test scenes and it compares quite well.

@stevo23:..."unlike Canon who feels it acceptable to slip backward from one version to the next from time to time."

The Nikon 7500 reportedly has some "removed features" compared to their 7200. No camera company is without sin. :-)

"Live view autofocus still clunky for both stills and video shooting" -DPR

So, in that one area, it's not even as good as a US$650 (with lens) Canon SL2.

Ebrahim Saadawi: It's seems like an excellent camera with a very lovely design and feature set but the price, what a shame. This camera will not sell very well, how could the almighty Canon not realize that fact?

And at that price you can simply get an EOS M5 + 15-45mm lens. What would I be losing, some size? that a gain TBH.

Pricing this at the M5 league is just wrong.

In addition, the G1 X III is even priced higher than an M5 + 18-150 kit lens.

The APS-C compact competition, the Fujifilm X100F and Ricoh GR II, don't have any zoom at all. They are fixed-focal-length cameras.

I still have mine, complete with remote control. I bought it on sale, after the G6 was released, so it must have been in 2004.

This looks like the kind of product that should have been put on Kickstarter, and then withdrawn.

Link | Posted on Oct 11, 2017 at 19:03 UTC as 13th comment

No wonder they are funding it on Kickstarter, rather than wasting their own money.

ChickenBalls: I don't know if I want to laugh or cry, being a Canon shooter since 2008 and have used eight of their DSLRs since then...
Their latest 6DmkII feels like a big "FU" Canon sent to many of us who have been hoping for a real still camera that is able to compete with the best

The Canon 6D II is pretty uninspired, but it is in a different price category than this Nikon. This Nikon is priced at $1,301 more.

Does Nikon have a trade-in program, so owners of Sony cameras can trade them in for a camera made by a real camera company? :-)

It's too bad that females aren't allowed to buy this camera. :-)

Nikon was never even close to bankruptcy. Nikon forecasts that, this fiscal year, the company will have an Operating Profit of 45.0 Billion Yen.
