    Canon Canon G1X Imminent?

    I think your reply said it all, until the part about a micro 4/3 system being better after your previous words clearly indicated otherwise: "So even if you don't want to change the lens, and although the zoom ranges and aperture are not exactly the same, I think a micro 4/3 system may be a...

    Canon Canon G1X Imminent?

    According to DXO Mark, the Canon PowerShot G1 X is the “Best Compact Camera", but my question is it for me or does another camera better suit my needs? I picked up the LX5 when it was on a Lightening Deal on Amazon.com for $269. So far, the camera has worked well, but mainly use the iA...

    Yeah, saw the ZS15 and ZS20 were announced yesterday.

    Canon Canon Finally Go Mirrorless

    Wow, sounds like a nice setup, but way too much stuff for my liking. For travel purposes, would a 24mm be a requirement on something like the LX5 compared to the G1X which is 28mm?

    Canon Canon Finally Go Mirrorless

    So if I am looking for a travel camera, how would the G1X compare with the LX5 or would something like the S100 be ideal? Comparable in low light condition? Better overall camera in the G1X compared to the LX5?

    Is the TZ30 the replacement for the TZ20?

    Canon Canon G1X Imminent?

    Very interesting. Just noticed the lens cap on the G1X. Anyone know why Canon went with this style; it seems to protrude out very oddly?

    Canon Canon G1X Imminent?

    How would the G1X perform in low light conditions compared to the LX5? Although the sensor is larger, with the slower lens would the LX5 still be the better performer in low light? Equiv FL (mm) Maximim aperture 28 mm F2.8 35 mm...

    Compact Travel camera - LX5 or G1X or X10

    Good point. Any idea if the release on the GX1 is actually for February or March?

    Compact Travel camera - LX5 or G1X or X10

    Went to look at the X10 today and while a very nice camera, I just don't think its for me. As for the G1X, I was looking on Amazon.com and it indicates it is due in March 31, I thought it was being released in February?

    Compact Travel camera - LX5 or G1X or X10

    Like most people, probably anything and everything. Especially when on travel anything is possible which is why I want a camera for general purposes from A to Z.

    Canon X10?????? What are you referring to? FYI...the SX230 successor should be announced in the next month.

    Compact Travel camera - LX5 or G1X or X10

    I must say, the G1X intrigues me the most. My two concerns are: 1. Will I miss having a 24mm lens over the 28mm. 2. Will the G1X still perform superior if used always in Auto mode?

    Compact Travel camera - LX5 or G1X or X10

    Thanks Lili! Right now I am leaning towards the LX or G1X if I want something a little more advanced, otherwise I am interested in hearing about the SX230 and ZS10 replacements.

    Compact Travel camera - LX5 or G1X or X10

    Armanius's - Thanks for the links. I do like the simplicity of the SX230 and not having to mess with the lens caps on the LX5. I will take a look at the reviews. I actually looked at the Fuji F600EXR and it seem to have great capability, but not sure how well it works unless you mess with...

    Compact Travel camera - LX5 or G1X or X10

    I know what you mean, I am trying to find a happy balance. :smile: Don't want the expense or complexity of the micro 4/3 cameras as I like the idea of the simplicity of an all in one. I guess for my interest, it seems like the LX5 or G1X would work well. Do you think something like the...

    Compact Travel camera - LX5 or G1X or X10

    The more I think about it, as much as I am sure I would like it, it seems kind of pointless to buy a $800 and use it solely in Auto mode which is my intent. Or is the best IQ, even in Auto mode, worth it? Thoughts?

    Compact Travel camera - LX5 or G1X or X10

    Yes, and unfortunately from what I have heard, the IQ of the ZS line has some what gone down with each new generation. I have been looking at the FAX150 and I am hoping Panasonic takes the same approach to the ZS10 successor. As for the SX230, I was looking at the reviews and it does seem...

    Compact Travel camera - LX5 or G1X or X10

    Have heard mixed reviews on the latest Fuji F cameras. Just noticed they came out with the F660EXR; not sure if there are many if any improvements from the F600EXR, but it is really geared towards someone who use Auto nearly all of the time or do you have to mess with the modes alot? Not...

    Compact Travel camera - LX5 or G1X or X10

    Armanius's - Thanks for your feedback. I have too different thoughts since I am mainly looking to always use the camera on Auto mode. Looking for something I can grab, but isn't too small to hold, and enjoy the camera. I am interested in something like the LX5 or G1X or the successor to the...

    Compact Travel camera - LX5 or G1X or X10

    Good information, but I am not interested in raw or manual focus. For Auto mode, do any of these cameras or others in the class outshine the other?

    Compact Travel camera - LX5 or G1X or X10

    I think that is typical though when you travel and/or want a general camera. Currently have a older Kodak that is badly in need of being replaced. Forgot to mention before that of these (or a comparable camera), which would work best in Auto mode?

    I would think for sightseeing and landscapes, the 24mm lens would be very important over the 28mm?

    News Replacements for the Canon SX230 and Panasonic ZS10

    Should the replacements for the Canon SX230 and Panasonic ZS10 be out in the next couple of months? Probably can expect the SX230 replacement to benefit from the changes in the SX40 and the ZS10 replacement to benefit from the changes made in the FZ150?

    Snaps from my travels with the LX5, and some thoughts on the LX5

    Great to hear from someone who owns both. So with the LX5, you think it works great in iA mode? The 24mm lens is something I wish the X10 had as I recall many times indoors where 28mm just won't seem to work. Above all if the price, my brother actually got a brand new LX5 for Christmas and...

    Snaps from my travels with the LX5, and some thoughts on the LX5

    Nice Review! I am looking at both the LX5 and X10 and curious in Auto mode, for those of us just starting out, does one camera work better than the other in this setting? Was also waiting on the Canon G12 replacement, G1X, but it sound like nothing more than an X10. Thoughts and comments...
