Time to come back to the Canon G1 X.

EDIT: check our PicDroid (click here) for the latest pics shot with a G1X and uploaded to Flickr.

Since people is getting their hands on Canon’s little new mirror-less (but not yet system) cam, more and more pics show up in forums and the camera is discussed all over the web. Here, for your reading watching and analyzing pleasure, you have a round-up of reviews, hands-on, and posts of mostly very satisfied new owners. All provide some pics. Lets start with the forum posts:

And the cam gets also a ton of reviews, here a selected list

That’s all for the time being. One last thing: the cam started to show up on top-rated seller shops on ebay, most time with world-wide shipping options (click here). And you can look out for possible dealsin the following box.

EOS 5D Mark III back orders full-filled by the end of March?

EDIT: I had another confirmation that the 5D Mark III starts shipping not later than March 22.

I can’t cite the source but I got word that the major shops will fullfill the EOS 5D Mark III pre-order in the next two weeks. Not bad news. Soon there will be some lucky and happy owners of a 5D Mark III.

Is Canon unsure about the G1 X’s Sensor Size?

I have to say that I am really happy to have readers that are curious and aware about what is going on. And I am glad that I am not the only one who sometimes has a glitch when writing about stuff. Ok, I want to tell you a funny story.

Lets first have a look to the following Canon ad that showed up in a newspaper:

Now let’s focus on a detail of the above ad:

It seems that Canon got the difference in size among the G1 X sensor and the 43 sensors a little wrong, or at least the proportions between the two types of sensor. You can easily see that the Canon G1 X sensor looks ways larger than the sensor of the 43s. But then, the always reliable DPreview published a graphic about sensor size comparison that suggest other proportions:

EDIT: they removed the MFT sensor size lines altogether and markeded the Nikon 1 lines as MFT (thanks to potz!)

Indeed, I think DPreview’s graphic gives a more realistic picture about the difference in size. What do you think about?
And, btw, if you want to know more about the Micro Four Thirds systems have a look on my friends homepage 43rumors.com.

More EOS 5D3 Mark III Sample Pics

Japanese site dcwatch (Google translated) posted a hands-on review and sample pics covering the available ISO range. There are also pics of the camera itself, of the components, and more. For the sample pics scroll to the end of the post.

There are really a lot of images of the 5D3 and its internal components. I found the next two pics particularly interesting: the applied weather sealing.
