I've been struggling to make a decision about a new camera and was hoping someone would be able to please help me!
I've never been too much of an avid photographer and although I went through a phase of fiddling my my Dad's 35mm Canon SLR 12 years ago, I've always been a point and shoot kind of guy.
Recently I've been thinking of upgrading to something with a bit more functionality, I will use the camera for holiday snaps and landscapes when out walking.
I was thinking of getting a Canon G12 (£294), my brother has one and I quite like the layout and the array of features. I then realised that the G1X (£487) is now out but i'm not sure whether it's worth the extra £200?
The other camera I'm looking at is the Lumix GX1 (£429 with 14-42mm Lens), I like the compact size and the fact I'll be able to change the lenses, I'd probably get a couple but don't want to spend a fortune straight away.
So any suggestions? I guess my question is G1X or GX1 and if G1X, is it worth £200 more than the G12? If the GX1 what lenses would you suggest?
Any help much appreciated!
