^^^ There was a post on FredMiranda.com not too long ago about a guy who did the same thing and was more than happy with the G1X. If it wasn't so damn expensive, I wouldn't mind having one myself to compliment my DSLR.

It was a serious debate with the wife on the expense....it's really "not" worth it...but when you think that the IQ is supposedly almost as good as a 5d, I guess it's not bad. That said, it has to be in the hands of a capable photographer so we'll see where I stand on that front.

mini update on the s100. nice:ish cam.
very operable, okish menu layout, pic quality is goodish with raw,but have to say, a bit dissapointed compared to my 3yr old panasonic hygrws5xs that I lost.
Like, it should be at least 10x times better at this point, after all theese years...
Pic noise is there (quite ok for a pos) in the iso 100-200 range but surprisingly the noise is very "grain" like when going up to 3200-6400.. Nice!
First pos that you can actually use above 400 iso..good.
Shutter latency is at times fucking weird. One moment the cam is very fast, the next it takes ages to gets its shit together. The 8fps mode is nice...kind off... You point, brrrp, and then you wait something to happen for the next 1-10 secs. no logic in when it is going to be ready for the next burst. one day it can make several in row, the next..oh well..
But the worst part is the battery. Under normal winter conditions the battery barely lasts a day of shooting.
Like, 100 RAW frames seem to be the max. At first I had probs to disconnect the fucking GPS the cam has, but after that..well..not that big improvement. The old panny could endure a week long ski trip and this little fucker can barely last a day. Have to check the battery if it is ok or if there is still some gps shit going on in the background..
Fuck the gizmos. give me a cam that can work for a day or three in cold conditions and I would buy it.
now it seems that the battery seems to be the same, but the cams get crammed full of all fucking possible facebook/gps shit...
The floggings will continue until morale improves.
