Would definitely buy this product again.

  • Excerpt: Previously only owned DSLRs and I wanted an advanced point and shoot to carry easily on vacations for easy schlepping and this only came close to my requirements. Not a pocket camera if you are looking for one but definitely a small one but quite heavy. Great pictures both outside and inside.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, No Viewfinder, Short Battery Life

  • Summary: GREAT picture quality but the trade off of this well made durable camera is that it is really too big and heavy for most pockets and rather than carrying it "everywhere" as I imagined I find I usually pick up my Canon SX230 HS with the higher zoom that this was supposed to replace since it still...

Solid little camera

Charlie, B&H Photo

  • 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

Excellent DSLR Alternative

JJ the Movie Guy, B&H Photo
27 December 2014
  • 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

Great, capable camera

22 December 2014
  • 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
  • Cons: Limited Zoom, Short Battery Life
