I agree. It may be a brand new processor but it uses 4 year old technology.

How do they rate battery life for cameras that don't have a flash?

The processor is the old technology. The frame rates for RAW burst shooting is pathetic.

If you compare the G7x to the G1X II you should also compare it to the Panasonic LX100.

It is clear from this article that Dpreview does not respect Canon anymore. There were some pretty snide remarks in the article.

After reading this article I get the feeling that Dpreview isn’t too worried about appeasing Canon. They definitely didn’t pull any punches in this article. This was a good thorough assessment of this camera.

It isn’t a bad camera. However, the Sony and Panasonic offerings are truly great cameras.

According to Canon "They have a better sensor than this".

The astronomy community would be very interested in this sensor.

I used a 1.3 Megapixel camera in 1999 and loved it. I could definitely still do ok with a less than 2 megapixel camera today if it could see in the dark.

No I am going to show you how to use the LX100 properly to take better pictures and videos than this person could take with the G1X. I will show how to properly utilize the aperture on a small sensor camera.

Considering the G1X costs about the same and has a larger sensor that sounds like a legitimate challenge to me.

I don't have the Canon G1X but I will have the Panasonic LX100 soon. I will show you what I mean in that LX100 review.

At Canon we see impossible. Impossible to lug this lens around.

The latest Canon Point and Shoot Super Zoom does 24–1008 mm @ F3.4 - F6.0 for about $350.

Looks like a good lens for spying on something or someone.

I could easily do better than this photographer with this camera because I know the camera's limits. I know that stopping this camera down won't help. The depth of field is not that shallow. Closer to wide open is MUCH better than closer to F13.

His post processing is way too aggressive as well. It was very clear that this photographer was accustomed to shooting with much larger sensors and he didn't spend the time to figure out how to shoot with a smaller sensor camera.

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: I can’t figure out what is more impressive. The fact that Dpreview placed this camera in the “Professional Interchangeable Lens Category” or the fact that it was actually competitive in that category.

I can’t believe that the GH4 is listed in the “Professional Interchangeable Lens Category” and the Canon 5D MKIII, Nikon D800E, and Sony A7R are not. Those are all listed as Semi-Professional.

"That's a database error, I'm afraid. I'm trying to find someone able to fix it."

So it showed up to a fight out of its weight class and held its own. That is definitely impressive.

Thanks Richard. Can you give us a hint as to which category it actually belongs to?
