The Perfect companion to a DSLR
I have a Canon 40D and a Canon 7D DSLR. Being retired, I take pictures mostly for pleasure but also supply two digital libraries and a local magazine. Image quality and reliability are key issues for me and it is why I have for a very long time stuck with Canon cameras. The 40D is a backup to the 7D and two cameras is fairly essential for my occasional reportage work when changing lenses simply is not an option. I find carrying a DSLR is a lump to carry especially when rambling so I was looking for a lighter substitute to replace my 40D backup. I also have an earlier Canon compact but I find the IQ simply inadequate. I didn't want a mirrorless compact with lens changing capabilities because for the more demanding photography my immediate choice world by my trusty 7D which does just what I want. Having to purchase another set of expensive lenses was unattractive to say the least I was immediately attracted to the G1X by its much larger than normal sensor size, its compact size, I can slip it into a pocket, and its much reduced weight when compared with a DSLR fitted with a professional lens. On receiving the G1x, I was immediately impressed by its obvious good build quality and the ability to adjust the focus of the optional viewfinder; but what a horrible little viewfinder with a clipped view when compared with a DSLR. I had to start to learn to use the screen display which was fairly easy and pretty good, but I still prefer my DSLR viewfinder. The next thing was the over simplified manual on a CD in which I quickly lost interest. I found the on-board camera menus with their help hints good but quickly learnt the camera performed pretty well in the auto settings with little benefit gained from using the aperture, shutter, priority or manual settings I was used to with my DSLR. I shoot raw. Using either Canon DPP or CS6, I find the G1X had good dynamic range and low noise performance, not as good as the 7D but still good enough for bureau work. Particularly impressive were the night time street shots where I could control the image noise in CS6 (probably better in Cannon's DPP) and not lose an unacceptable degree of detail. Another surprise was the performance of the built in flash. I've just come back from a seminar where out of the blue I was asked to take a group photograph around a new logo. The camera was in my laptop case so I agreed. Using the natural light as a best as I could, the built in flash did a superb fill in job. I was impressed! So was the customer! Focusing is interesting; initially I tried selecting a focusing point as I would on the 7D.. no, no too slow, much better to use an auto setting and how easy it was to get well focused images. I particularly like the way the display shows an enlarged picture of the focusing spot the camera used after the photo is taken. The camera’s exposure system is pretty well spot on; no complaints. Night shots were a doddle. Macro performance is limited, realistically a tripod and manual focusing is the work around. If you want good macro out of a compact, go for one with a smaller physical area CMOS and loose the IQ and suffer more image noise. A disappointment perhaps is the cameras slow continuous shutter speed. It has a high speed burst mode but to me, I shall always use the 7D for this type of work. In summary, the G1X has near DSLR image quality and much, much better IQ than any other compact I have ever used. Read full review

Canon G1X New Standard
The G1X is a very good camera in lots of ways picture quality,feature (the video is exxcelent) and quick to track the subject, its a nice size weight in the hand and easy to use even the "Pop" up flash is good for quick snaps but Canon do have a new unit for the G1X I bought a genuine case with mine mainly as i know it will fit right and some genuine Batteries also as i found the G1X fairly power hungery ! not excessive just a bit more than the old G12 i had, i also picked up a genuine protect cap for the lense just to kepp any dust at bay Features ? well to be honest i dont use as many as are inc in this new model mainly as its dam clever at giving you good pics. i cant say there are many faults ? well only one in my book but i can live with that :) the fault been that the display screen at the rear has a awfull little clip/clasp you need a long fingernail to open ? i do hope the next model has a better one :) Picture/video quality is what we look for and this new G1X has heaps of that i have took about 200 pics/25 videos with it and there pin sharpe a good job all round by Canon and highly recomended to (but fix that display catch lol) other than that well worth the £600 odd asking price Read full review

Best Point and Shoot camera for amateur or professional.
Have had Canon G 11 in the past so expected this camera to be better and it was. With it having a larger sensor ie SLR size I found the image quality to be stunning. I was aware it had a few shortcomings with respect to action shots and macro but that didn't bother me as my primary subject matter would be landscapes. Lens was very sharp across the zoom range with very little corner softness. CA was minimal.

small alternative for SLRs.
Perfect alternative for those, who doesn't like the size of SLRs. 18,7 x 14,0 mm sensor gives you real quality - comparing to todays standard wich is 1/2,5" (5,8 mm 4,3 mm) - which you can find in most of compact cameras.

Amazing compact camera!
Bought for its size manual operation and raw option. Compact, but not so compact that fits on a pocket. Overall, excellent!
