I have fiddled with the camera and cannot figure it out, how can you do long exposure with this camera?

I thought it had a bulb mode, just checked and it does not seem to have one...
Still, in Manual mode, M, you can have up to 250 seconds - which is a fair bit.

I have been waiting to try out this camera indoors to see how it performs, especially in low light settings while taking advantage of the zoom. I am happy with the way the images and video turned out at my kids choir concert.

So, with some time to spare yesterday in Sheffield, I took the G7 X for a little walk where I haven't actually been (on foot) before:

Not sure why, but the saturation of the images irks me a bit... shooting RAW... I wonder if it is my editing, or what...
At least with "proper" colours it is way too saturated so I desaturated it a bit (which I suppose fits teh scenes too)

Nice shots. I was thinking the saturation looked good, but if you had to desat to get to this point, maybe they were oversaturated. In any case, they look good now. I'm more and more impressed with this camera. What are your feelings on it? Given the choice, would you make the same purchase?

Well, there at lots of interactions as you edit the image. Take it "as it is" and they aren't oversaturated.
BUT compared to my 5D MK II, the colours become significantly more saturated when I pull down highlights and push shadows - which then has me reducing the saturation.

The files behave quite differently to the 5D MK II.

As to making the same choice again: Yes.

I'm a Canon fan & it makes my life easier to not juggle different formats. At the time (last year), the G7 X was pretty much the best choice. The Panasonic that competes in the same segment wasn't out and more expensive.
Leaves the Sonys as an only option at the time - but then the G7 X does beat them in terms of lens, plus I like Canon and as before, having just one format makes your life easier.
(I.e. I just need to be able to handle CR2 for example - not multiple RAWs - so I can have only DPP on my Ultrabook and do the proper editing at my desktop.)

Agreed. The G7 X would be my choice for the same reasons. That extra reach in the lens is important and the same workflow with RAW files is a plus. I usually manipulate my RAW files in some ways anyway, so not having perfection SOOC is not that big of a deal to me. I enjoy the process of pulling everything I can out of a RAW file.

Just ordered one from B&H. Should have it Monday. Got a weekend trip to FL coming up, so it'll get some use right away.

Here is one more for you from Sheffield (from Wednesday):

I look at that and see very little difference from a full DSLR shot. Nice detail, good dynamic range, color and contrast look great. Just a subtle loss of sharpness in the extreme corners, but you can get that with a DLSR shot as well, depending on the lens.

Well, that image isn't one of my sharpest (forgot the ISO setting wasn't maximum limited auto and it was an excessively long exposure...) plus the scene determines it a lot too.

As to differences: There are definitely differences on the pixel level sharpness (due to noise mainly I'd say and possibly some diffraction limited sharpness) - compared to a 5D MK II with a 24-70 f2.8 USL L, BUT that is a 330g camera vs. a 2.4kg camera (with grip).
On the overall photo you won't spot those pixel level differences.

It is a great camera overall - especially for its size.

Just a quick test shot outside the office, but I'm pretty happy so far. Good color and detail. Even the 100% crop looked good.

One more. I thought the RAW file was a bit subdued as far as saturation goes. I boosted it a bit.

QUOTED IMAGE

Shortly after I got the G7 X I gave it a little test in Leeds - Photos from October 2014:

I have the suspicion that especially the Canon software is slightly aggressive with sharpening but in the grand scheme it is pretty impressive.
Having said that, even Capture One with a less aggressive setting gives good results.

Macro mode works pretty well.
