Few notable former offerings I've either owned or extensively tested PowerShot G1X II Sony RX100 III (extensively tested) G7X II (extensively tested) EOS 5D III EOS R Nikon 1J3 EOS M3, M5, M50 PowerShot S110 Ratings based on vs other point and shoots... I'll say a couple things out the gate: This is "the" point and shoot to own. Period. It's not exciting with a 24-72 reach f/4.5-9 equivalence. However, it has the sharpest zoom optic for a point and shoot, coupled with the most capable sensor ...

I do long ocean swims several times each week and have been carrying a camera with me on those swims for the past thirteen years. I briefly tried towing a bowling ball (Canon 5D in giant Ikelite housing) behind me, but when it refused to focus on a Humpback Whale swimming by, I gave up on it. Now I carry small cameras. I have been thrilled with the results I've gotten with the Olympus TG4. Recently a magazine asked to use some of those swim photos, but were dismayed by the softness they ...

I've had the camera for about a month now and feel ready to review it. First, and perhaps most important, this is a review of how well this camera meets my photographic goals. That's the only meaningful basis on which to compare cameras, in my experience. I don't personally care if camera X is the perfect vlogging tool, for example, or is great for shooting sports. I do neither of these things. Also, a bit of background: I own a Nikon DSLR and am reasonably happy with it. It's a mid-range ...

I have a Sony RX100III  that the diopter adjustment recently always moves out of focus. Now it sits in the drawer only used for traveling real light. Familiar with the Powershots from the G12 onward I have enjoyed the G1X Mark 3 picture quality, (which is amazing ). Also the very accessible controls. Very pleased!

I have had Sony RX100V for over a year now and I had all the RX100 series previously . I also had some Canons . Last week I picked up Canon G1XIII and returned it after 2 days. The Sony beats it in every possible aspect! It has better autofocus, much sharper lens with much less chromatic aberrations , better (and here I was really shocked ) low light performance and much smaller form factor . While Sony can be charged through USB using the supplied cable and adapter , Canon can’t! It comes ...

After one month and 800 pictures I appreciate that camera like as a little DSLR.

Pros: - good grip, reasonable button placement, lightweight, swivel screen - Image quality on par with canon 800d, nice colour reproduction - Good image stabilisation - Autofocus is quick and works in low light, approximate the speed of efs-35mm macro - On-camera flash is handy - Panorama mode needs some practice but produces good results- Good EVF - Charging via USB Cons: - Poor battery life, lasts about 200 shots per charge with flash off- Slow aperature somewhat limiting - Long shortest ...

Over the last 3 few years I have changed my cameras far too many times most due to my addition to GAS but equally looking for the best image from a camera I can get even with my mediocre skills I recently sold the Fuji X100F -a brilliant camera with fantastic images and great filters. I thought this was a keeper but I soon realised that it was a niche camera and a bit of luxury. I just didn’t think I’d get the use out of it for the cost and I really wanted a go to compact camera to complement ...

Just inputting an entry for the G1X III into the user reviews to give it a metric as I've written heavily on it on the forums, but just need to slap one in. Excellent for Pets/Kids; the camera is perfect for running around chasing things between it's small form factor and fast AF. Top notch. Okay for action / sports; fast accurate AF and tracking, but zoom range is limiting compared to predecessors for sports usage (Consider a DMC-FZ1000 or RX10 III/IV) Excellent for landscapes; large sensor, ...

Not the best camera in the world but certainly not the worst by any means. Reasons to mark it down . Expensive. Has decent video but no external mic or even manual gain control. Not enough zoom, 100mm would have been nice, 120mm better. Understand why the lens is 2.8-5.6 but why not 2.8-4? Has Bluetooth but no ability to use the very handy Bluetooth remote. Not able to use the Canon GP-2 GPS adapter but must use a smartphone paired with camera to geo-tag. All these would have made for a ...
