Canon first attempt to counterattack the mirrorless system cameras is the G1 X. And it’s now in Stock for the first time at Adorama US (Click here). Our friends at Photorumors also found the first unpacking celebration pictures at Rust.se (Click here). And Trustedreviews (Click here) tested the G1 X: “The advantages of this larger sensor are immediately clear to overall image quality, with the G1 X offering class-leading performance in this respect. However, in other areas the G1 X lets itself down somewhat with sluggish operation and niggly performance issues. Image quality purists may well be willing to forgive these flaws, however anyone in the market for a snappy advanced compact with quickfire operation may well be slightly disappointed“.
I don’t think the Canon G1 X is the right camera to compete with mirrorless sytem camera.s But I guess that Canon is juts tasting the terrain before the real big deal!
