In addition to the distortion, flare and vignetting results already found on the Canon PowerShot G1 X Digital Camera Review page, resolution results using the ISO 12233 chart are now available. These results need some explanation.
 
As I have said before, I do not feel that Canon's current version of Digital Photo Pro, version 3.11.31.0, is properly converting the G1 X RAW images when the "Viewing and saving RAW images" preference is set to "High quality". The problem appears identical to the problem we saw with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III when it first hit the streets. Canon fixed the 5D III issue quickly, but ... either disagrees with me that a problem exists - or has chosen to not make the G1 X fix a priority.
 
The G1 X ISO 12233 results show two samples being tested. In this case, both samples are from the same lens (and camera of course). Sample 1 images were processed at the "High speed" setting while sample 2 images were processed at the "High quality" setting (what I normally use). I feel that the sample 1 results best represent the sharpness of this camera, but have not processed any of my G1 X RAW images with hopes that Canon would give me the sharper results along the better-cleaned-up image quality that I expect "High quality" to deliver - in a DPP update.

Great news - Spider Holster has announced a big missing piece in their great camera holster solution (from my perspective of course) - the Arca-Swiss clamp attachment.
 
From Spider:
 
SPIDER HOLSTER LAUNCHES SPIDER ARCA-SWISS CLAMP
 
The Spider Arca-Swiss Clamp Ensures Universal Compatibility With Any Arca-Swiss Style Camera Brackets Allowing Photographers To Take Advantage of the Back-Saving Carrying Solutions of Spider Camera Holster Systems
 
Spider Holster Arca-Swiss Clamp
 
Ithaca, NY – July 30, 2012 – Spider Holster, (www.spiderholster.com) a company specializing in unique holster-style carrying solutions for photographers, today announced the addition of the Spider Arca-Swiss Clamp to its full range of camera accessories. Designed for photographers who shoot with the popular Arca-Swiss-style L-brackets, the easy-to-attach Spider Arca-Swiss Clamp provides a mechanism for all shooters to take advantage of Spider Holster’s secure, back-saving carrying solutions while keeping their Arca-Swiss camera setup clear of any attachment when connecting to their tripod.
 
When using the Spider Holster system on its own, users simply attach the Spider Plate and Pin directly to the 1/4-20” tripod mount on their camera. When photographers add accessory brackets or plates to the body, these brackets occupy the sole attachment point on their camera. With the Spider Arca- Swiss Clamp, Arca-Swiss plate users now can easily carry their gear with Spider Holster to reduce the stresses on their upper body. Compatible with any bracket or plate that features the Arca-Swiss geometry, including those from Wimberley, Really Right Stuff, Kirk, etc., users simply twist the pressure screw allowing the Spider Arca-Swiss Clamp’s sliding jaws to release and are free to connect the camera to their tripod.
 
“Our customers have been telling us for some time that they are forced to choose between their L-bracket and Spider Holster, and we don’t want them having to make such painful decisions,” said Shai Eynav, President of Spider Holster. “With our new Spider Arca-Swiss Clamp they now have a solution that allows them to take advantage of the superior carrying afforded by Spider Holster while providing a seamless workflow with any Arca-Swiss style L-bracket or plate.”
 
Compatible with both the Spider Holster SpiderPro and Black Widow, the Spider Arca-Swiss Clamp carries an MSRP of $95.00.

What would you shoot with a Gigapan?
 
David Bergman chose the Olympics Opening Ceremonies.
 
"Photographer David Bergman created this Gigapan during the 2012 Olympic Games at Olympic Park in London, UK. He made the composite photo by shooting 425 individual photos in a grid pattern (25 across by 17 down) during a one-hour time period as the athletes entered the stadium. The final high-resolution image is 81,992 X 37,520 -- more than three billion pixels."
 
(thanks Sean)
