Canon PowerShot G1 X review

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • Summary: Camera manufacturers all seem to believe that there’s a middle ground between a point-and-shoot and a DSLR, and they’ve all tried to find it — Nikon with the 1 series, Sony with the NEX models, Olympus with the PEN line, Samsung with its NX cameras, and the like. The sell goes something like this: it’s a smaller camera, easier to use and less expensive, but still offering the same level of control (or nearly so) and the same level of image quality (or nearly so) as your...
  • Pros: Excellent pictures and video, Fast performance, Plenty of manual control
  • Cons: Poor autofocusing performance, Big and bulky, Expensive

Canon PowerShot G1 X Review

reviewguidelines.com
29 August 2013
  • Summary: For some time, the market is demanding solutions that make live compactness and image quality, or small bodies and large sensors. The buoyancy of the market of mirrorless is the confirmation. But there are many users who are not interested in interchangeable lenses, and therefore, looking for a complete solution that meets the majority of photographic needs.
  • Pros: Robustness and ergonomics, Display fully adjustable, Thread on the lens that allows you to mount filters, Image quality, Performance at high ISO.
  • Cons: - Tripod mount is not in line with the target and blocking the battery compartment and memory card, Viewfinder really of little use, Autofocu Dancer, Macro not sufficient for tightly frame, Optical brightness is not enough for a good detachment of the plans.

  • Conclusion: The Canon G1 X impresses on all fronts, delivering excellent handling and great results across its comprehensive range of exposure modes. Pricey it may be, but this camera's real-world performance goes a long way towards justifying its price tag.

  • Excerpt: Don't bother trying to use the optical viewfinder. It's junk. It's clear and bright enough, but at anything other than full zoom the lens barrel dominates the view. The optical viewfinder provides no shooting information - nothing at all, not even framing lines. It's just a plain, optical tunnel with a view that is mechanically coupled to the camera's zoom control. The optical viewfinder is useless and a complete disappointment on an otherwise wonderful camera.
  • Cons: The optical viewfinder on the G1 X is one of those things you just have to wonder about. I mean, why did Canon put so much well considered effort into almost every aspect of the camera's usability, build quality, handling and image quality, and then allow the inclusion of an optical viewfinder that isn't much different from the one you can still find on a throwaway, 35mm, single use, film camera? The optical viewfinder on the G1 X is an unmagnified telescope which mec...

Canon PowerShot G1X Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
28 September 2012
  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot G1X goes down in history as a ‘classic’. The unrivaled quality this camera presents will outlast it’s competitors. While the focus is more on quality and functionality rather than design and gimmicks, you won’t be disappointed. Canon have developed a top of the market camera with the G1X, ready to outlast and outlive.

Canon Powershot G1 X

neocamera.com
13 July 2012
  • Summary: The Canon Powershot G1 X is the first G-series to use a large sensor, somewhere between a 4/3 sensor and an APS-C one. The 14 MP one fitted in the Canon G1 X gives superb image quality, making it produce the best image quality among fixed-lens cameras. Noise levels are very low and images remain sharp and extrmely usable until ISO 3200 which only shows light noise. This matches the performance of the best cropped-sensor DSLRs.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, Low image noise, Good image sharpness, Good colors with tweak, Great WB in bright-light, Quick shutter-lag, Built-in 3-step ND filter, Intuitive interface, Durable build quality
  • Cons: Generally sluggish AF, Glacial AF in low-light, Some over-exposure, Bluish cast in low-light, Slow shot-to-shot speed, 1s video record delay, Low battery-life, No AEB in M mode, Optical tunnel viewfinder partly obstructed by lens

The new fixed lens king?

Gear Patrol
20 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Canon’s PowerShot G-series has always strived to meld the smaller form factor of a point and shoot with the photo quality of a larger-sensor DSLR, and with the new Canon G1 X ($799) , Canon continues to aim to do just that. Building on its predecessor’s, the G12, precedents the G1 X boasts a substantial 1.5-inch 14.3 megapixel CMOS sensor, which is the largest sensor ever dropped into a Powershot compact.

Canon PowerShot G1 X

PC Magazine
12 May 2012
  • Conclusion: The Canon G1 X is a compact camera with a big sensor and a fixed zoom lens. At $800, it's a tough sell, as you can get an equally-capable compact camera, D-SLR, or mirrorless interchangeable lens camera for less money.
  • Pros: Large image sensor. Sharp lens. Good high ISO performance.
  • Cons: Expensive. Limited macro capability. Small optical viewfinder. Slow lens. 1080p video is limited to 24 frames per second.
