  • YOU need ..... keep stating your demands, but you are clueless.

    Many photographers are less demanding than you and accept that every camera is a compromise. Why MUST a camera hava a...

  • Yes, despite the impressive feature list the lack of a tilt screen puts this camera much lower on my list. Really a surprise as the FZ1000 does have EVF and tilt screen ...

    And when comparing to...

  • regarding 'diffraction limited' S110 at maximum tele: I found the images of the S110 at 120mm to be VERY sharp (very fine details visible), but low contrast (a bit 'hazy'). With some PP they can...

  • question for DPR crew: how does the G7X handle when turned upside down for 'over-the-head' shots?

    @hk: G1X2 needs stopping down 1-2 stops for good quality, especially at the extreme ends of the...

  • funny, over at the Canon forum some people are loudly complaining about the 'Nikon sponsored Photokina coverage'.

    I guess Canon has a bit more new camera products at Photokina than most other...

  • big high res unit: bigger camera, more power drain, higher cost. Just doesn't match the GMx concept.

  • I like to have an EVF but I would NEVER consider a detachable EVF that makes the camera definitely non-pocketable, is inconvenient in many ways, tends to get lost or damaged etc.

    An add-on EVF for...

  • the 'crap' you are talking about was acceptable to every pro videographer just 5-10 years ago. I used several digital cameras with 200K or so viewfinders around ten years ago, and they saved the...

  • @brownie314:
    Yes, and that 70D is hardly better than the top APS-C models from 6-8 years ago (almost same DR, 1/2 stop better High ISO performance, only a bit more resolution). No progress in IQ.

  • yet another machinegun style brick from Canon with no real improvement in sensor quality compared to 8 years ago or so ... really sad. Dual pixel is some progress, but not in image quality where it...

  • I don't understand what someone who thinks cellphones will soon beat 1" quality compacts does on a site like DPR ...

    Cell phones are a joke for ergonomics, and I'm not even going to discuss all...

  • LX100 should have 1/2-1 stop better low light performance than G7X due to the effectively 50% bigger sensor and the better equivalent aperture of the lens. But the Canon has 50% more pixels, and...

  • it is sad indeed that despite lacking an EVF (EVF usually means more battery drain) G7X has the worst battery capacity among its competitors. Maybe it was important for Canon to keep the weight low...

  • Yes - the LX100 needs to have clearly superior image quality, otherwise it seems much bulk and extra cost for very little gain.

    For me the GM5 with compact kit zoom would be a potential...

  • apart from the big advantage that you can take shots from unusual (low) angles - BIG advantage as most people know who have worked with such cameras - it helps in viewing the display in unfavorable...

  • Canon always leaves something out for the next model ;-)

  • typically Canon: a bit dull, nothing revolutionary - but a very solid product that provides strong competition to RX100-2/3 and LX100 (also in price). We can expect better ergonomics and better...

  • but in addition to a much bigger sensor and much brighter lens (at tele) it does have a tilt screen, which is great!

  • maybe it looks better from the outside, while the Canon looks dull ... but Canon G7x has very nice specs in a cheaper and smaller package: longer zoom reach, 20 instead of 12 MP, tilt screen, ND...

  • Canon G7X has tilt screen, ND filter and 100mm zoom (and lower price). No EVF though, but I prefer that to EVF and no tilt screen.
