I am after one of these two to replace my powershot 6mpx cam which has been great over the years but its time to decide which..?
Love low light taking
Hate flash photo taking
Want point and shoot as well as effects after taking pics
Can either do this?
Finally, which is ideal given my needs?
Many thanks, a confused amateur.

The G1 X sells for $799, the G15 for $499. How on Earth can those figures translate to GBP 454 and 529, respectively? There is something seriously wrong with the G15 price quoted in all you comparisons with that camera ...
