Okay, Okay, Here It Is - The Canon G7X
The previous post about automatic programs might have included this new camera in the list - I just saw that it is in the shop this week and the canon company are very proud of it.
It is compact - it will drop into the top pocket of a Camera Electronic work shirt - and has a 1" CMOS sensor. there's a gloriously precise function ring around the lens axis and good finger access for all the controls. thankfully there is also an external exposure compensation dial for when you are using the auto programs.
The LCD screen is an a wide-swinging hinge - it is single-axis, but will fold up over the body of the camera to allow you to accurately frame selfies. Don't make that scornful face - you know you will be doing this in restaurants and pubs when you are on holidays. You might as well make good ones.
The interesting thing about the hinge is that it is metal - indeed the body of the camera is metal and feels terrifically solid. This is a great thing to see in a new compact - a return to build quality.
Note that there is also a bit of subtle style here -look under the edges of the shutter button and the mode button - red anodised rings. I don't know whether they signify some extra control, but they look cool.
