Canon Powershot G1 X tested

Video from

Wow! The Canon Powershot G1 X review I wrote recently seems to be coming good. Here is a specification.

Large 14.3 MP CMOS, DIGIC 5, HS System
Compact 4x zoom; Intelligent IS
3.0 inch vari-angle 920k dots LCD
Real-image zoom (live video zoom), optical viewfinder
Full Manual, RAW, DPP
High-speed Burst HQ
Smart Auto
Extensive accessories
HDR mode and ND filter

A great spec. for a great looking camera. Fitting into the range of the keen shooter, this great little camera should provide a great stepping-off point. On one hand it is a really flexible for those who want to move up from the straight forward P&S crowd. It also has some cool social networking features for those who want to improve their social photography. On the other hand it looks powerful and full-featured as a pocket camera for the expert and professional shooters. Reports say it has great image quality.

The video shown here is a little mixed in its response. Unfortunately the review does not cover some of the more interesting under-the-bonnet possibilities. So I think there is a lot more to say yet. He is clear on one thing – the good image quality. Image quality counts for a lot. So do the other features. If you are a keen photographer and want to move up into the near SLR range this is a great opportunity. If you love photography but don’t want to carry a full size, full featured SLR everywhere, this is one to go for… remember it shoots RAW. Discerning photographers love RAW!
