Not my favorite

  • Excerpt: I use this for personal/vacation. Nice feel to the G1X but very slow. Not good for any quick point and shoot things like a baby or moving animal. Great quality and nice feel to the camera. Probable going to sell/return it after testing for 2 weeks.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera for a trip to Europe in 2012. The camera performed well for the trip, but I'm not sure it would be my camera of choice if I were to do it again. I read the reviews prior to making the purchase so I had some expectation of the potential issues.

  • Excerpt: Take too long between shot. Seems slower then the cheaper canon power shot. I wish they can make it a bit faster.

EXCELLENT CAMERA THAT COULD BE BETTER

Oliviero, B&H Photo
28 January 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a very well made compact camera that I have found is ideal for stationary subjects. Image quality is outstanding compared to other compacts. It's greatest limitations are that focussing and recycling are slow, and it has a hopeless macro capability - especially when compared to the Canon...
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact

Two Problems, sent in for repair

nightphotog, Amazon
14 December 2012
  • Summary: My macro will not focus on close-ups, even after manually setting it to macro. The video did not work, and would only take still photos while in the video setting.
