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. Like most digital cameras it has more features than anyone will ever use. It records RAW and I can use my Speedlights with it or shoot with my studio lights.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, No Viewfinder, Short Battery Life
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. In terms of picture quality, I'd say it looks pretty darn identical to my t2i.My two issues with this camera is its lack of a viewfinder and the odd construction on the screen.
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. Something that was sorely lacking in their G-series. I miss the pivoting LCD, but do not miss the optical viewfinder, so that's sort of a wash, but the LCD is extremely bright and sharp.
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
Excerpt: Excellent camera. The insturctions are on line and that makes it difficult to figure something out if one is outdoors or away from a computer. Would be nice to have a comprehensive instruction manual - not just one that gives just 'wired' information.
Excerpt: I've used the G1 X Mark II for several months as a pocket camera for field work, taking a few thousand photos in that time (think insurance inspections and similar field jobs). I've used two models in the G-series previously for the same purpose; each wore out after a few years of heavy use.
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: I have been shooting with the 7D, 70-200mm 2.8 IS (v.1) and 17-55mm 2.8 IS for close to 4 years so I have become accustom to some pretty good image quality and have been waiting for a compact to hit the market that will give me the flexibility and control of full manual shooting and RAW capture so I don't have to pack 25 pounds back and forth to work just so I can capture that "One" occasional moment on the hour drive each way not to mention some venues where a DSLR and...
