Good Things Come In Small Packages

Bobbie B., B&H Photo
18 March 2015
  • Excerpt: This is a very unique camera. It has a sensor on a little smaller than the one typically found in SLRs. Thus you can get SLR quality photos from a camera that fits (though somewhat bulkily)in your coat pocket. Like all Canon cameras, the controls are plain and simple.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Limited Zoom, No built in lens cover, No Thread For Filter, No Viewfinder, Poor Flash

Good Camera, But Too Big

T. Kincaid, Amazon
22 January 2015
  • Summary: The biggest selling point of this camera is that it has the same size sensor as DSLRs like the Rebel line, so you get the same optical quality in a smaller camera.However, the camera is still too large for my tastes.

Image quality is more than good enough. Be advised that unlike other G series ...

Douglas P Jones, Amazon
18 October 2014
  • Summary: I specifically chose this over the Mk II version, as some rocket scientist in the Canon planning department decided that the screen didn't need to swivel in BOTH axis. They must not ever shoot verticals.

High Quality PS Camera

SWD, B&H Photo
15 October 2014

  • Pros: Good Image Quality

Excellent low light camera

A2, B&H Photo
24 April 2014
  • Excerpt: A bit of a quirky camera, but our needs required a silent camera with low light capability. Replaced an awkward and difficult to use silenced (blimped) camera. The G1 X delivers if you are willing to adapt to the camera. Mechanically solid and produces high quality images.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light

A Great Little Camera

Busy Bee Photographer, B&H Photo
30 March 2014
  • Excerpt: It's like haveing a 35mm with a 28 to 112 lens; I set mine where the front dial changes the zoom range from 28mm to 112, in set increments, it goes 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, 100mm, and 112, so there's not guess work in focal lenght...I'm in hog heaven...
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact

User Review

gear1box, DP Review
23 February 2014
  • Excerpt: you must understand this camera's limitations:  it is a Canon Powershop digicam with an APS-C sensor and a remarkably good lens grafted on.  Which means, like every Powershot, it is slow to get into use; not designed for action; somewhat clumsy (by dSLR standards) ergos; and the sensor/lens geometry...
