Not sure I've seen photos from the SJ7 other than some long exposure night shots which were not very impressive. The SJ7 has the same sensor as the Git3 so should be able to do similar to above, except it has an Amberella processor instead of the Novatek in the G3, not sure what difference that makes for photos. The SJ7 doesn't do raw, but none of the photos above are raw, the 4:3 images are jpg photos and the 16:9 images are frame grabs from H264 video. The G3 does have an advantage over the SJ7 on the video with 14% more colour resolution which allows me to do a reasonable amount of adjustment in the editor. I have played with the SJ6 and like you say it is a little lacklustre despite having the same lens, sensor and processor as the Git2, however the Git2 will not match the G3 anyway, except for long exposure night sky images where for some reason it does better.Why cant o take pictures like this with the SJ cameras, they always seem lackluster to me
That last image has had the foreground brightened significantly on the computer, it is looking into the sun with the foreground in shadow from the cloud so the original foreground is rather dark and certainly not so dramatic, more disappointing than doom and gloom!
We had some sun today, some bright colourful summer sunshine images coming up soon...
