Comments about Canon PowerShot G3 X Digital Camera:
Bought to use for an upcoming holiday as a lighter alternative to my Canon 5D MKii which btw I wouldn't part with. Ive often looked for a lighter, smaller camera for travel but compacts were too small, bridge were still bit big and CSC still had disadvantage of carrying extra lenses. The G3X though has a decent zoom, good image quality (still testing)isn't too small, well built, feature packed and weather resistant. Its also a bit more discreet although not pocketable. The lens is 24-600 which on my 5D would mean carrying the very long lenses with even more weight and only allowed 6kg total as hand luggage. The screen tilts up or down although my only gripe is a fully articulating screen would have been better both for angle of view and also for protection when not in use. One disappointment is having to buy the optical view finder separately as the whole camera starts getting a bit pricey then. I have had several alternatives in the past including compact, bridge and CSC but never been very happy with them. The G3X so far though is looking pretty good.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Semi-pro Photographer
Really need a viewfinder which will be acquiredBought for size and zoom ranges and the metal construction felt stronger and more compact than p900Bought to go walking with the dogs as my Nikon D4 and 800 were to cumbersome and a little anti Nikon at present with quality issues

This is no pocket compact!
By Little Jo
This camera is easy to set up, nice to hold and very quiet in operation, but early adopters be aware that Adobe have not yet updated the Camera Raw plugin to deal with raw files from the G3x, so in the short term, the raw files must be processed in Digital Photo Professional. (Shouldn't be too long!)Image quality appears to be excellent. This isn't a small camera, and certainly not handbag sized! Maybe my Powershot G15 won't be sold on after all. It is great that both cameras use the same batteries.Connects to my iPhone via the app very well, though Apple hasn't updated its software yet to work with raw files, no doubt that will come.
