I got this camera for about a month now and absolutely delighted as a amateur photographer. Purshase was made based on online reviews of specialists and legendary Canon name. It's advanced point and shoot camera exceeded my expectations with clear, sharp, vibrant images. Some of them are really amaz...  see moreof 's review

      A Very Good Camera for Travel

      808 Pureview3 years ago
      This is a very good general purpose camera for travel. it is like a combination of a rebel with some L lens. Image is extremely sharp. Color is very accurate. The dials and buttons are very professional like, very easy to access. Very strong IS, very safe to use at low light or low shutter speed. V...  see moreof 808 Pureview's review

        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. I guess I didn't realize how much t...  see moreof LIONGATE's review

          Cut my teeth years ago with F1 mech., A1, F1AE, T90, etc. Remember the weight of a f1ae with motor drive, 12 count them 12 aa batteries. Carried them all over the world. Everyone remember the 50+ lbs camera bag? Wanted a camera that I could get good to very good images with a decent sensor size plus...  see moreof bvwest's review

            Take too long between shot. Seems slower then the cheaper canon power shot. I wish they can make it a bit faster.  see moreof ken's review

              I have the G1x for about 18 months, having bought it shortly after it was released. I wanted the larger sensor and the external (non-menu) controls. I had read most of the critical reviews and was not put off by the slower focus and lack of macro. Neither was a deal breaker. There are 2 rather inexp...  see moreof Rmark's review

                Let me begin by saying I have used Cannon cameras exclusively since 1973 ! I bought the G1x to replace my G7 that had served me well for many years. I also own 2 high end Canon DSLR camera bodies. I have been extremely disappointed with the G1x for one reason. The autofocus is EXTREMELY slow ! You c...  see moreof SteveL's review
