Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II

 

The Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II camera is more responsive than its predecessor, and squeezes a big 1-inch sensor into a compact frame.

Crisp lens. 1-inch image sensor. 8.1fps image capture. Touch LCD. Built-in ND filter. In-camera art filters. Wi-Fi. Quite compact.

Pricey. Short zoom. Narrow aperture when zoomed. No 60fps video option.

There is some stiff competition in this space. You can get the older Sony RX100 II for about the same price and enjoy a longer zoom range, but you won't get a touch screen. The next model up in Canon's line, the G7 X Mark II, is more expensive, but...

Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II Review

 

The Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II is a new premium compact camera, featuring the same one-inch type, 20.2 million pixel CMOS sensor as 2015's original G9 X model. The Canon G9 X Mark II now offers a new Digic VII image processor, Dual Sensing Image...

Although owners of the original Canon PowerShot G9 X aren't going to be too excited by the improvements on offer, the new Mark II does represent a minor step forward for Canon's most pocket-friendly compact camera, particularly in its operational speed.

Canon G9X Mark II Review

 

The Canon G9X Mark II arrives less than two years after the original G9X, which launched as the world's smallest camera with a 1-inch sensor. Much about the G9X II is the same as its predecessor and that's not a bad thing. There are several new...

If you're looking for plenty of speed in a compact form factor along with proven image quality, the Canon G9X Mark II will be available in February for around US$530. The camera will come in silver or black color options, the former having brown accents.

Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II Review: Powerful Pocket Shooter

 

The Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II has a lot to offer with a depth of features, many of which have trickled down from DSLRs like the Canon EOS T7i . It's a quick little camera with great image quality that will please both the snapshooter and, thanks to...

Slim, pocket size design ; Responsive touch screen ; Good image quality ; RAW shooting and in-camera conversion ; Speedy continuous shooting ; Easy image transfer to mobile devices

No viewfinder ; Modest battery life ; No 4K video

The Canon G9 X Mark II is speedy and takes great pictures for its small size, but other compact cameras offer more features for around the same price.

Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II Announced with Underwhelming Updates

 

Canon's biggest camera news at CES 2017 is the new PowerShot G9 X Mark II. To be fair though, Canon's CES news is always underwhelming.

Canon could own the premium compact market (after finally getting into the 1″ sensor market) but it appears to be making the same mistakes it has made in the DSLR and mirrorless realm for so many years. Other manufacturers (Sony/Panasonic) that don’t...

Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II review

 

A pocket powerhouse of a compact

Compact size ; Simple to use ; Premium finish ; Large, 1.0-inch sensor ; Decent connectivity

Only 1080p video capture ; Touch interface not for everyone ; Limited zoom range

The Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II sets itself apart from the competition thanks to its dinky proportions, but this does mean there are a few small sacrifices to be made. However, if you're looking for a neat compact camera that delivers vastly superior...

Canon G9X Mark II

 

Canon GX9X Mark II review: A compact camera with a DSLR-quality processor and excellent handling

Slimline, pocketable design ; Good image quality from 1-inch sensor ; Well-implemented touchscreen ; Excellent in-camera JPEG processing

Unambitious lens ; Limited physical controls ; No 4K video recording

The G9X Mark II utilises on-chip contrast detection for autofocus, and on the whole it’s fast, quiet and accurate. The desired focus point can be selected by tapping the touchscreen, or alternatively you can use face detection or defer focus area...

Canon Powershot G9 X Mark II Review

 

We review the Canon Powershot G9 X Mark II, the premium camera with a 20 megapixel 1inch CMOS sensor, 3x optical zoom, and 3inch touch-screen.

The Canon Powershot G9 X Mark II is compact and stylish, and one of the smallest cameras available that delivers high image quality, thanks to the use of a 1inch BSI CMOS sensor. Having to use the 3inch touch-screen to change controls may not be to...
