Curiosity factor: two Benq G1 reviews (semi-serious compact starts at f1.8, 3-inch twist LCD, but no RAW)
This is the definition of a Curiosity Factor update. A few months ago, BenQ announced the new G1 digital camera, a camera that looked on paper like an attempt at a semi-serious compact. Semi-serious because BenQ did not offer RAW and has a 1/2.3" CMOS sensor. But the lens starts at f1.8, is stabilized, offers manual exposure control on the dial, and has a 3-inch (920 kilodot) twist-and-shout display on the back. So how does the camera perform?
For more specifics on the camera, the user manual is available to download from BenQ Europe in multiple languages, including English. [as of the time of writing, I am not able to download the PDF of the user manual].
