Canon PowerShot G7 X II

 

The G7 X II gets some small but significant upgrades over its predecessor

Great low-light performance ; Tilting touchscreen ; Plenty of manual control options ; Raw format shooting

No viewfinder ; Screen not fully articulating ; Limited zoom range

Canon didn't need to deliver a major overhaul of its excellent G7 X, and the upgrades in the G7 X II build on the original camera's reputation, particularly the performance-boosting Digic 7 processor. The only disappointment is the continued absence of...

Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II review: Nip and tuck triumphs

 

Canon was late to the 1-inch sensor compact cameras game, following in the Sony's RX100 footsteps to deliver the original PowerShot G7 X back in 2014. In the period since then this larger-than-average sensor sector has become a battleground. Nobody...

Great responsiveness, customisable lens control ring adds click-stop/smooth control, decent low-mid ISO image quality, fast 24-100mm f/1.8-2.8 lens, pocketable design, touch-control tilt-angle LCD

No viewfinder or facility to add one, high ISO image quality (over ISO 1600) not all that, battery is only so-so, Sony RX100 IV is still a step ahead, where are the next-level autofocus features?

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II has impressed us more than we had anticipated. Its scale and feature set might not be class-leading, but what looks like little more than a nip and tuck compared to the original model turns out to be a turbocharging in...

The Canon G7X Mark II sits in Canon's premium range of compact cameras. It's intended to appeal to those who want a device that offers a high level of control and excellent image quality, but slots into your pocket. It could be seen as a travel compact...

Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II review

 

I like the Canon G7 X , one of the company's 1-inch sensor enthusiast compacts -- the one without the viewfinder -- but that model just can't keep up when it comes to speed. Given that its successor, the G7 X Mark II, is fundamentally the same camera...

The Canon PowerShot G7 X II is nicely designed with good photo quality for its class, and improves noticeably over the earlier model.

Still lags behind the competition with respect to features and some aspects of performance.

Performance improvements raise the G7 X Mark II's grade to excellent, as long as you're not looking for a lot of frills.

Canon G7 X Mark II review - pocket-sized brilliance

 

A great concept expertly realised, the Canon G7 X Mark II is very close to perfection.

Electronic viewfinders are a matter of taste, but I’d quite happily omit one for the sake of the G7 X Mark II’s tilting touchscreen. The Sony RX100 IV comes top for video with its 4K and slow-motion options, but it has a smaller zoom, less accessible...

The Canon G7x Mark II can be a good backup camera to a DSLR or mirrorless shooter for most users, if you can overlook some of its problems.

Canon Powershot G7 X Mark II Review

 

The Canon Powershot G7 X Mark II is the updated version of the G7 X and features a number of design changes, as well as performance improvements. But how does it perform in our review?

Short battery life - unless you use ECO mode ; Slow flash recharge time ; No auto panoramic mode

The Canon Powershot G7 X Mark II is a good update to the G7 X with the same 4.2x optical zoom lens, which features a bright f/1.8-2.8 aperture, and the Mark II offers improved noise performance, and excellent image quality, along with handling...

The Canon PowerShot G7Xii is compact, powerful, and ready for any shooting situation. The HS system provides outstanding image quality and performance for a compact camera. Read more in our Full Conclusion.

Scene Recognition shooting mode is accurate and easy to use without worry ; Canon's HS system led by the 4.2x optical f/1.8-2.8 lens is awesome in low-light situations ; Large, 1-inch CMOS image sensor provides excellent overall image quality ;...

Lack of 4K video recording mode ; No audio input ; 4.2x zoom is a little limited, doesn't have the range of most compact cameras ; No EVF or OVF (usually found on many of the higher level compacts)

Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II

 

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II is a pricey pocket camera with image quality that goes toe-to-toe with much larger models.

Wide aperture zoom lens. 1-inch image sensor. Tilting touch-screen display. Quick autofocus. Raw image capture support. Wi-Fi with NFC.

No hot shoe or EVF. Edge softness at wide angle. Occasional autofocus misses. Doesn't support 4K video capture. Omits microphone input.

Conclusions The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II looks a lot like its predecessor on the outside, but delivers some palpable performance updates. An improved burst rate when shooting in Raw format and modest updates to the focus system, video capabilities,...
