PowerShot G1 X
4 Star Review  PCWorld - Aug 6, 2012

The Canon PowerShot G1 X takes the sharpest photos weve ever seen from a fixed-lens camera, and its image quality and video quality are outstanding overall. However, for $800, we expected better macro and burst-mode performance.

DCRP Review: Canon PowerShot G1 X
4 Star Review  DCResource - Mar 11, 2012

if you've got $800 burning a hole in your pocket and want a semi-compact camera with D-SLR image quality, then look no further than the Canon PowerShot G1 X. It's not for action photography (due to its sluggish focusing and burst modes) nor is it great for close-ups, but for virtually every other situation, the G1 X delivers. I'm hopeful that Canon's next large sensor camera will have a faster lens, snappier performance, and improved battery life, but for now, the G1 X is easily good enough for me to recommend.

Canon PowerShot G1 X Review
4 Star Review  Imaging Resource - Dec 31, 1969

Every once in a while, a camera comes along which offers a genuinely different approach to its rivals. Some--like the first mirrorless models--go on to fundamentally change the market. Others aren't quite so successful. Either way, we welcome designs that think outside the box. The PowerShot G1 X is Canon's first large-sensor compact. Its announcement last Spring prompted much speculation: was this Canon's final answer to that blossoming mirrorless market, or a first tentative step towards its own mirrorless debut? The fixed-lens design and narrower-aspect ratio have allowed Canon to create a large-sensor PowerShot with a worthwhile size advantage over mirrorless models, and a night-and-day image quality advantage over small-sensor cameras. Like many first-gen products, the G1 X does show a few rough edges though. Will the advantages of its unusual design outweigh the drawbacks? For the verdict, read our Canon G1 X review!

Canon PowerShot G1 X Review
4.5 Star Review  photographyblog.com - Feb 14, 2012

The Canon PowerShot G1 X is a serious compact camera with a large 1.5-inch image sensor. Building on previous G-series models, the G1 X also offers a 4x, 28-112mm zoom lens, 1080p HD video with stereo sound, 3 inch vari-angle screen, optical viewfinder and manual controls. £699 / €799 / $799.99 is a lot of money to pay for a fixed-lens compact camera - read our Canon PowerShot G1 X review to find out if it's worth it.

Canon PowerShot G1 X
3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Feb 17, 2012

THE GOOD: The <b>Canon PowerShot G1 X</b> delivers excellent photo quality and a nice shooting design. THE BAD: Two flaws stand out: the cameras underperforming lens and sluggish shooting speed. THE BOTTOM LINE: A big camera capable of shooting some lovely photographs, the Canon PowerShot G1 Xs slow lens disappoints given its high price.

seems ok but just bought it
4 Star Review   By Dave on Adorama - Mar 19, 2013   

I will use the camera for outdoor and family photos. I will be visiting Smithsonian Museums and am curious how the indoor photos will turn out. It would be nice if the Book explained the best setting for taking photos of paintings at museums.

What? No manual
4 Star Review   By Marionsho on Adorama - Jan 30, 2013

G1X...there's nothing like it!
5 Star Review   By Jim on Adorama - Jan 11, 2013   

I purchased the G1X as a compliment to my Canon 4Ti and it has done an excellent job. It is, without a doubt, the finest compact camera available, bar none. It's not the greatest for action photography but I don't do much of that so it doesn't matter. If

4 Star Review   Crutchfield.com   

Crutchfield has collected 6 user reviews for this product with an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars. The most recent reviewer said, "I've upgraded from an 8 year old point-and-shoot. Never used a DSLR and was sort of hesitant/intimidated to go that route. The Canon Powershot G1X was the answer for me. Superior image quality, RAW capability, manual functionality, HDR, and 1080p video capability really sold it for me. I'm sure I'll be using and enjoying this camera for years. Although you can do better with a DSLR in this price range, I am one that likes the fact that I don't have to deal with multiple lenses."

Nice addition to a DSLR.
5 Star Review   By Laurence on Adorama - Mar 9, 2012   

This is a good addition to a DSLR and not replace one especially during times that having a full sized DSLR isn't practical or not allowed e.g. in certain venues like concerts, museums or dining out, etc.
