Canon Professional Network published an article bout Mr. Tatsuya Yamada, the mastermind behind the G7 X.
Says Mr. Yamada:
[The G7 X] was planned with the concept, ‘High image quality in a pocket size’. Compared to the G1 X Mark II, putting a priority on the size is a feature. By achieving a balance between high image quality and size, so an even broader range of people can enjoy the camera, the best answer was to use the 1.0-type sensor. Also, particular priority was placed on background blur plus the feel of that blurring as well, so in addition to an f/1.8 (W) – f/2.8 (T) lens that is bright even at maximum telephoto, a 9-blade aperture iris – the same as that on the G1 X Mark II – was also included. In addition to this, to achieve the ‘expanded range of shooting’ that Canon is aiming for, it is also equipped with a long focal length of 24-100mm, and an LCD monitor that tilts 180 degrees.”
