I have a Nikon D7000, which I love, so I sold my Nikon D90 and a couple of lenses to buy a Canon G1 X, which is a camera series that I adore!
First impressions are very favourable. It looks great, handles well, and has all the features that you would expect from this model of camera. Pictures seem to be of a pretty good quality. It's expensive but it does have a lot of features, e.g. ND filter, raw pics, manual modes. It feels to have a solid build, handling is great, and controls are generally very well laid out. As some of the reviews have pointed out the focusing seems a bit slow on moving subjects but this isn't a major issue for me. The picture below is one of the first taken with the camera.
Stories behind the pictures from our adventures within Ireland and abroad. Pictures mainly from where we live in Co Tyrone and Co Londonderry: Cookstown, Wellbrook, River Blackwater, Portstewart, Portrush, Castlerock, Coleraine. The North Coast of Ireland is a favourite spot for us.
