DxOMark measurements for the Canon PowerShot G1X
Let’s turn our attention now to the DxOMark lab results for the PowerShot G1X:
A DxOMark overall score of 60, (portrait) color depth at 21.7, dynamic range at 10.8, and low-light ISO at 644: clearly we are no longer in the typical world of compact cameras and their small sensors. The PowerShot G1X is achieving scores close to those for Canon’s entry-level reflex line (see the results of the Canon EOS 1100D, for example).
In concrete terms, what does all this mean?
- You have a reflex-quality sensor in camera of the same volume as a G11.
- You can use this camera even under relatively difficult conditions.
- If you’re an amateur photographer, this camera can satisfy pretty much all of your needs (especially if you want to take great family photos, for example). If you’re a professional photographer, this can be a good backup camera.
