Canon PowerShot G9 X
A search turned up a few posts about this camera, but they didn't quite answer my particular question. I'm interested in it because it is pretty much the same size as the S100, which I currently own, and only a little bit heavier, but it has a much bigger 1"-type sensor. I'm aware that it's not supported by CHDK and it doesn't have usable video out. If I were to buy it, I would use it in either an AutoKAP rig or R/C with a separate micro camera for the video downlink.
Anyway, my question is about how the image quality compares to the S100 and similar cameras. The reviews online are kind of mixed regarding the sharpness of the lens. It does have higher resolution than the S100, but whether that helps in practice is another question. (I'm mainly thinking about viewing these fullscreen on a monitor, rather than making large prints.) I would hate to spend a few hundred dollars and not get a significant upgrade in image quality. If anyone has used this camera and can comment on that, I'd appreciate it.
