Very nice, thanks for posting them. How does it do with in low light and with shallow depth of field?

This one was taken in very poor light, hand held at 6400 ISO, not tested shallow depth of field just yet.

Thanks for posting the photos, but we all know it can take good pictures in good light :) What we want to see is how it performs in low light at high ISO's!

Only took a few shots a few shots in low light, but already feel confident that the camera will work well at 1600 Iso (better than my 7D).
It's a semi pro camera with a large sensor and more advanced processor so I would have expected the above results.
One thing to note, the G1X is not a macro camera, if you do long treks over hills to get your landscapes and want to be discreet in street photography then its ideal,it could actually replace the lower end dslr,s.

That mirrors what I'm seeing as well. The lens is nice and sharp with a decent amount of contrast. Certainly better than the standard Canon kit zoom for DSLRs. If you do a lot of macro, you'll be better off with a G12 or a DSLR with dedicated macro lens. The 7D at iso 800 gets a lot of flack for noise. I'm not seeing any of that in the files I'm getting out of the G1X.

I agree the lens is certainly up to the task, I hate using the 7D above 1000 ISO, so to find the G1X is very good at 1600 ISO was a surprise.

This is my first G camera so I,m really trying to work through it on a steep learning curve, this could be user error but I did notice the auto white balance wasn,t too my liking on the scene settings, so I,ve switched that off to get a warmer image, thats the way I work on the DSLR anyway.

I think members should avoid trying to battle the camera against the G12 it has its own slot between smaller sensor compacts and the low/medium DSLR,s. It has different characteristics and as more users come on line no doubt it will have its followers.

The images taken were JPEGS with some basic processing, shortly I will be shooting 100% RAW format which I should imagine give me the capability of reduce noise to a minimum.

Very nice images. You may already have seen these on DPR's Canon forum, but here's some interesting low light, high ISO concert photos;

Dennis,

A note on the low light setting for the G12... it reduces the G12 to a 2.5 mega pixel camera. I tried it early on and all the shots were ummmm horrible. Full of grain, etc. That's why I ended up getting a flash.

Judder,

Thanks so much for sharing the photos. They clear and sharp. I'm impressed with the capabilities of the G1 X... and I didn't I would be, truth be told. I'm sure your talent had something to do with it too. ;)

Kim

From the looks of it, this looks like a 3 or 4 stop improvement in ISO performance compared to the G12! I am thinking that with the Canon underwater housing, this is going to be a stellar cheap underwater setup!
