Canon PowerShot G5 X review (DPReview)

Powershot G5 X

DPReview posted their exhaustive review about the new Canon PowerShot G5 X, featuring a large 1 inch sensor.

From the conclusion:

The Canon PowerShot G5 X is a stylish, well-built enthusiast compact that in most situations is a pleasure to use. We especially enjoyed its longer-than-average lens, large electronic viewfinder, fully articulating touchscreen LCD, built-in Auto ND filter and numerous customizable control dials. While not best-in-class, Canon’s Wi-Fi implementation is still very good. The G5 X produces photos and Full HD videos that are comparable to its peers (read: the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 series) in most situations. Read the review…
