Pros Sharp photos with lots of vibrant colors & contrast up to ISO 3,200
Nice articulating screen
Excellent flash coverage with the ability to use external flashes
Cons Snap On Lens Cap!! UG!!!
Summary The G1X is a marvelous camera that takes detailed, vibrant photos as ISO's that would have been unimaginable a year or two ago. I also own a 5d Mark 2 and 1d Mark III. The image quality from this camera is just as good as either of my Canon dSLR's in a much more portable and less intimidating package. It is not a camera for fast moving subjects, but for most everything else this camera really shines.
Pros Superb picture quality under almost all conceivable conditions.
Fast and easy changing of settings.
Wonderful, extremely useful, articulating LCD screen (and I wouldn't want to buy a camera without one).
Lightweight for its size and capabilities.
Cons Macro use requires auxiliary lens.
Snap-on lens cap.
No filter threads engraved in lens housing (requires filter adapter).
Auto focus not as quick as on some models (but adequate under most conditions).
You must print the owner's manual (necessary!)
Summary The title says it all: this is the best camera I have every owned and I would recommend it to anyone who wants superb pictures and who is willing to take the time (and make the effort) to learn how to use it.
Pros Got this camera 1 wk before a once in a lifetime trip to Aust and N Zea. Used the 24 hour flight time to familiarize myself with its workings. Wished I'd had more than the "getting started" guide. However was able to take some frame worthy photos.
Cons Auto focus is a bit slow, and macro is a joke, but as was mentioned before there are accessories to get around the macro problem
Summary Would recommend this in a minute. The zoom range covers about everything you would need when traveling. Fit easily into my handbag. And am very pleased with the fact that you can shoot both raw + jpeg
Pros Great picture quality, great for someone who is after a camera that takes great quality pics but doesn't want the size of a dslr. Have used this for a week and have been to a few parties and motorsports events. great camera! very happy customer.
Cons Macro Picture ability, but overcame that with adaptors and macro lenses...
Summary Superb picture quality along and easy to get use to if you want to go more advanced with the manual mode. Great camera for those who don't want to carry a big DSLR around with them and not give up quality.
Thanks for your submission!
