Product Information
The Canon PowerShot G1 x 14.3 MP Digital Camera came on the market directly after the G12. Showcasing new functional features, the Canon PowerShot G1 is pocket-sized and convenient for amateur and professional photographers alike. This Canon PowerShot G1 boasts of excellent JPEG processing and offers a large sensor at 1.5-inch and 14.3 MP. The larger sensor allows this PowerShot camera to capture higher quality photos in less light and with less depth. Sleek in design and sufficient in noise reduction, this particular Canon camera delivers quality results and crisp images in natural settings and when capturing moving objects such as action shots during sports games. Like the EOS Canon camera, the Canon PowerShot G1 also shoots movies in full 1080-pixel HD, along with the ability to capture RAW and JPEG images. This PowerShot camera is also compatible with Speedlite accessories. According to the photographers preferences, the high-resolution LCD display provides access to shooting tools and is able to maneuver.

I used to own a G11. I really liked that camera, I was bound to its design, built quality and ergonomics. So, after 3 years, I decided to upgrade, mainly because I wanted better high-ISO, low light photos. I looked no further than Canon G15 and G1X, I just can't get used to the ergonomics of any other camera. I also wanted something of a moderate size and didn't care for interchangeable lenses.
I finally preferred the G1X. The main reasons was the much better high-ISO image quality and the articulated screen. In a few words, camera is really great. Due to its huge sensor, flash is getting very little use and only under certain conditions, namely very low ambient light and/or fast moving objects.
The camera is extremely well built and its ergonomics are almost legendary. Many buttons and dials, shortcut buttons and highly customizable menus, everything is so user friendly.

Its weaknesses; Yes, there are a few, but I only can confirm one, the not-so-great macro performance. It's simply physics, such a large sensor cannot focus in very small distance. So, expect the camera to be able to focus in about 20cm. far form the object, when using macro. I almost solved the problem by using a cheap 58mm lens adapter and a not so cheap Hoya HMC +3 close up lens. Other users report its slow AF performance. I cannot confirm that, I have never used very extensively a DSLR, but compared to my old G11, I do not find any significant difference.
Other people mention the low battery life. Yes, it looks much worse than G11 in that aspect, but battery life is very good anyway. Please note that after playing with the camera for around 30 minutes, it tends to get a little warm on the grip, nothing serious though.
The camera is big and heavy, probably the biggest and heaviest compact. The difference between G1X and G11 is significant, mainly due to G1X's non-retractable lens.
And yes, it's expensive, really expensive. In this price range there are many 4/3 and DSLR cameras. But make no mistake, G1X is an extremely capable, high end compact with great built quality and the best ergonomics I've seen.
Consider G1X seriously if you want the best compact around and don't care about its bulk and price.

Many people think in terms of a compact as a pocketable camera. If that is your situation do not look to the Canon G1X. I see a compact as being a camera one can use comfortably with a wrist strap. This fits the bill for me (just.)
But this is a camera where one can extol superlatives by the bucket load with regards to the quality of the images it is capable of giving; simply head and shoulders above the competition will do though for a one liner. If that is your key demand, then your only concern has to be digging a little deeper into your funds for the initial outlay. You get what you pay for.
Like all Canon compact or bridge cameras, many features are crippled out of the menus, but those familiar with CHDK will be pleased to learn that an alpha version (at time of writing) is now available. This will enable you to record directly in DNG format, as well as loading useful scripts like ‘Motion Detect.’ There are too many other features to list here. I’ve just listed a couple that are important to me.
Many will not like the snap on lens cap that dangles pathetically off the strap-mount eyelet. Replace it with the JJC that opens or closes with the on/off button. It only cost a few bucks, and so does the adapter ring from similar Chinese sources. This will then allow the fitting of filters or more impressive macro with something like the Raynox M250.

A good performer but in my opinion, in need of mechanical beefing up

I traded up to the G1X in January to take advantage of better resolution from the large sensor. It performed well and my only criticism of features was the (expected) poor macro performance.
Due to my error, the camera lens assembly was damaged due to a relatively small knock and repair is uneconomic. Although Canon deny it, I maintain the plastic fitting at the front is not up to its job.

No regrets on the purchase. Everything I need in a compact.

What can I say. Trully excellent picture and video image quality and superb 3" screen. Lousy viewfinder and autofocus at times has difficulty locking on to subject. However, as a back-up to my 5D MkII, no other compact comes close based on IQ. ISO3200 can be used with more than acceptable results.
