What is that streak of highlight that go though the moon? Was it there at the scene or is it the camera causing it?

I believe that the streak of light is from condensation on the lens and could have been prevented if I had wiped my lens before taking the shot.

A quick question about the battery. There are reports that the battery has a relatively short durability (250 shots). What is your experience? Would you recommend an extra battery?

I would say I get around 300 shots with no flash use. With flash use the number of shots drops down to 200-250. I recommend picking up an extra battery if you think you might want to shoot more than this.

With the WiFi, can you control the manual controls (f-stop, ISO, shutter speed) or just remote shutter from a phone?

I was watching a video and I spotted this on the Canon Australia channel:

What's this all about? I thought it didn't flip that way...

From what I can tell you have no manual controls. You can zoom, set shot timer, control flash. I think that's it. Can't even use touch screen to select focus point. Much worse implementation than what I've seen with Olympus or Panasonic.

Olympus improved their product after it was out for a while (adding manual controls), maybe Canon will do the same.

If anyone is seeing more functionality please chime in. User error is always a possibility for me!

Just ordered my G7x from Adorama. Should be here tomorrow from the free overnight shipping.

I'll play around with it for halloween and such and post some photos.

I recently returned from New Zealand. The Canon G7 X was my only digital camera. Here are some images from my trip (most have metadata)

I'll be looking at this one (and a couple others) to replace my Sony RX100II which I really don't like one bit, no matter the great IQ. Looking forward to reading more of your experience here!


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:
