Hi all! I just got my Canon G7 X. With this camera, I will be replacing my Sony RX100 Mark I, which replaced my Canon s100. I will be posting my first impressions along with images in a few days. If you have any questions regarding the camera, or any picture requests, I will make sure to include them in my review.

Nice. A HDR image would be nice to see, can you select a centre single focus point?

On the outer ring, the one around the lens, how clicky / stiff is it when turning? Does it feel rough on the outside? The one on my S110 feels rough, not pleasant to use.
Can you use manual controls for filming?

Digital Panda, looking forward to your review. Any head-to-head with the RX100 would be awesome, especially on casual people shots indoors with so-so lighting. Just off the top of my head. :)

Did you buy this from a HK-based seller? Curious about the transaction and any import fees.

Thanks!

Definitely interested in how it compares to the rx100 I, which is what I have right now (upgraded from the s95).
Especially low-light to no-light shooting, focus tracking for video, built-in HDR and size. Those I've considered the strong suit of my rx100 I. Also very interested in how well the touch screen works. And it's a given that Canon menus are better right.

Would love to hear your impressions of the camera's stabilization (and touch focusing if you have the time) while shooting video. Many thanks in advance!

That's a shame.

How? Well, first they had to get some custom made wings that would lift a hefty porcine body off the ground...
