It's no longer a rumor. The G3X is for real (1-inch sensor and 25x zoom)

Mpix I politely disagree. You can easily extract/harvest 8mp stills from 4K video or 4K Photo.
It's just that with 4K photo I can deliberately set the shutter to 1/1000 or 1/3000 etc. before beginning
the video....yes this means that a true video made from the 4K Photo will look like crap but the frames
will be fine assuming the shutter you select is appropriate for the lighting. It's not only selecting shutter
but all the other parameters as well.
There is no difference in my experience harvesting from either. Just with 4K Video you are bounded by the
exposure constraints of the video.
Maybe I'm missing something? I don't pretend to know all about extracting stills but I have done it in both
video modes.
...

MedMan, I will defer to you on this; I think you have more time behind the wheel with the FZ1000 than I did. In my experience I couldn't shoot good action video and pull good stills from it. Very possibly that was me doing something wrong though.

Love the first two! What focal length are these at? I'm really considering this camera for a trip this winter to Austria and Germany. Just visiting family and our condo, places I've been to many times, don't really want to drag my big gear with me for a short trip. Having that extra reach sure would be nice, I'd sell my Sony RX100II.


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

Okay, I pulled the trigger and got me one. I like it very much. The lack of a viewfinder isn't an issue (so far) and the zoom is very ergonomic, far more so than my old SX40.

It's also intuitive to use. You have to download the advanced manual but I doubt I'll bother. I'll bet I can figure out how to tame this beastie. :)

All in all, so far so very good.

A photo taken by the wife tonight. It was a bit fiddly getting used to the buttons in the dark but this camera continues to impress me.

:-) Just wondering if anyone can do or has done a comparison of images and quality between the g1x mk11 and the g3x? :-)

^hoping that will be an unfair competition. 1.5 inch sensor versus 1 inch sensor.

This where you need to know that the loss of sensor size is compensated in usefulness for by the extra zoom length of the lens.Lets be honest most photos unless you really crop hard or pixel peep you may not notice a difference.Most of us look at photos on a medium sized monitor.
Ideally i would like the lens of the g3 strapped onto the body of a a g1x mk11 :)

speaking of the G1Xii, i've got it and the add on EVF.....that already having the EVF makes me wonder about the G3X. I keep saying no, don't....too many cameras sitting idle as it is. Probably should just sell the G1Xii and the EVF and be done with the temptation. But IQ wise the G1Xii (first gen too) is stellar.

I picked up a G3X this morning. I needed a capable compact camera with a good zoom range for travel. I've played with it a bit and I'm pretty impressed (so far). I think it's going to work out just fine for its intended purpose.

I went ahead and ordered the hood kit and electronic viewfinder too. Since the lens hood can be reversed, it really won't take up much more room in a small camera bag.

In RAW mode (no simultaneous JPG writes) it shows more than 1,200 photos on a 32GB card. I think I'll get a couple of 64GB cards and that should cover me for even the longest trips.

yeah, I love mine too. Much more intuitive to use than my Fujifilm XE-2. I suspect the poor Fujifilm will be sitting on the shelf, feeling bored and lonely, while the G3X gets all the love.
