    not in the market for a powershot sx720 camera .. and i doubt many user who frequent such sites as this are.

    i don´t even bother to read the specs of such cameras anymore.

    • Jesse

      I guess I sort of agree about the sx720. Not for the g7x though.

      • Vertex

        he mentioned the sx720 and i can only agree 100% to that opinion

    • Frank Larsen

      yes me too. so easy to drag up me smartphone and use the 40x optical zoom x)

      • Vertex

        i think you don´t want to get it?
        when you are really intersted in photography you should take a better camera with you but not a P&S.
        there are better choices, that are not much bigger.

        • Frank Larsen

          if you want a picture from a 1000mm straight out of your pocket, there are no other alternatives that are much better, are they? (eqviv…yeah yeah..)

          The smallest superzoom camera wit a 1″ sensor is the canon gx3. it’s a great camera, but its much bigger and heavier than this.

          It’s funny with a big zoom in a small format, one is suddenly a spy in a James bond movie, nobody notises a small supezoom, great for reading signs that are faar away. You should give it a try, and just watch your pictures on a tab later!

    • I’m looking for a pocketable, P&S camera (eg: s120). The camera would be a better choice than the smartphone: “Generally” better night pics, and, it won’t drain the smartphone’s battery.

  • The only use-case I have for a compact is music festivals and other events where they won’t let in “professional” camera equipment (defined at a recent event I attended as “any camera with an interchangeable lens”). I don’t own a compact but am giving some thought to one for these situations. The G7XII looks as though it should be on my ‘consider’ list.

    • Eric Calabros

      You may need to refine your “consider” mode after checking the lens sharpness at corners.

      • I probably won’t end up getting a compact anyway, as it’s difficult to justify spending $500 or so on a camera that I’d only use less than 6 times a year. On reflection, the lack of an EVF rules the G7XII out – some of the events I’m thinking of take place outdoors in summer and I think trying to compose using a rear display in those conditions would be an exercise in frustration.

    Would love for it to have a pop-up EVF like then RX100 IV, but I’m sure it’s just a flash.

    Any idea what that lever is beside the lens?

    • MdB

      My guess is it switches the ring between clicking and non clicking.

    • malchick743

      It’ll be just a pop-up flash but whether it will feature the G1X-II’s manual tilt-up (bounce) mechanism remains to be seen.

      The lens side lever may be for switching between stepped or continuous ring operation, but whether such design would complicate maintenance (should the ring fail), I have no idea.

      Must disagree with having the pop-up EVF though. My experience with such finder design has been negative so far, as it gives me more eye strain than expected.
