I'm going to the game today and sometimes I feel like the iPhone 6s is not up to the task.

So I'm thinking of getting a compact for those days I don't want to bring my 5D MkIII.

I would like the G7 X, but that is above what I want to spend.

What has your experience (positive/negative) been compared to a mobile phone's camera. Or am I just being silly.

I found Canon compacts extremely slow.

A sony RX100 II would be a good option http://www.bhphotovide​o.com ...100m2_digital_camer​a.html (external link)
I would buy it used.

Too late! :-P

On my lunch break I went to Best Buy and they matched B&H open box price ($379) on the G9 X! I figured I'd give it a shot and was pretty shocked they did it.

I also had a $60 Rewards that I applied so the total came out to $$348!

I'll post some pics tonight at Yankee Stadium.

Only because I'm going to the game tonight. Not to mention it was a pretty good deal.

G88, great shots...the one from behind home plate is awesome! Looks like the G9X is a keeper for sure :-)

Thanks guys!

I think it's a keeper as well. In fact was looking at neck straps last night.

I posted more shots yesterday at that same Flickr album.

One thing I did notice, there's no photo thread for the G9 X. Maybe I'll start one.

The G9x is my favorite camera I own, including my 5DIII. My only wish is that it had a wider wide angle

Really nice shots. I'm impressed.

For the comment above. Yes I agree why can't these compacts have a 20mm-xxmm range. 20mm is perfect for the wide side IMHO.

Yes, me too. The G9 X starts at 28mm. The G7 X Mk II at 24mm. But I would have loved the longer reach of the G7 X (80 vs 100). But it's not in my DNA to spend $700+ for a P/S.
