Summary: We have just started figuring out how to use the camera. It will probably take awhile but we're excited about all the possibilities. We'll know better in a few months just how well if fulfills our expectations.
Excerpt: This is my "always have with me" camera. It is small, yet feels solid, and takes great pictures. There are a few things that I have gotten used to. It is a little slow to auto focus and the battery life on a charge is not great. I always have a charged spare.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, No Viewfinder, Short Battery Life
Pros: Fully featured, quality set for beginning photographer. Includes useful accessories for the same price as the bare camera on Amazon. Paper manual easy to follow within individual steps. Offers electronic manual.
Cons: HDMI cable does not fit camera. Also would have preferred an optical view finder.
Excerpt: Was looking to downsize from my Canon t2i. Didn't feel like carrying around a bunch of lenses anymore. G1X mark ii has this great built in lens that's 24-120mm 35mm equivalent. So that's a pretty darn good range, especially considering how light the camera is.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Small / Compact
Excerpt: Excellent image quality and fine controls in a rugged camera body makes Canon's G1 X not only a great backup/secondary camera, but the prime choice for a small main camera as well. Finally, Canon included a more sophisticated, responsive and accurate autofocus system.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
