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,...

Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II Review

Canon G7X Mark II Review

 

Keeping the same 24-100mm eq. zoom lens and 20MP sensor as its predecessor, the refreshed Canon G7X II gets an updated exterior design as well as a faster DIGIC 7 image processor.

Very good image quality, Improved high ISO performance; Improved handling; Faster 8 fps burst mode; Burst rate no longer slows down with RAW files; Improved buffer depth.

Soft corners at wide angle; No viewfinder; No 4K video; Mediocre battery life; Sluggish buffer clearing; Continuous AF struggles on fast subjects.

Keeping the same 24-100mm eq. zoom lens and 20MP sensor as its predecessor, the refreshed Canon G7X II gets an updated exterior design as well as a faster DIGIC 7 image processor. What we get is a faster, more capable premium compact that still...

Canon G7X Mark II review

 

Canon's PowerShot G7X Mark II is a compact aimed at enthusiasts based around a decent-sized 1in sensor and a 24-100mm f1.8-2.8 lens. Announced in February 2016 it comes about a year and a half after the original and best-selling G7X which was Canon's...

Great image quality from 1in sensor and DIGIC 7 ; Flexible 24-100mm zoom range with bright aperture ; Fast and confident AF system ; Tilting screen with touch capabilities ; Built-in Wifi with NFC and smartphone control ; De-clickable lens control ring...

No built-in viewfinder, nor any means to connect one ; Lens a little soft in corners at 24mm ; No 4k video or slow motion movies ; No in-camera panorama mode ; Can't remote-trigger movie recordings over Wifi

Canon's PowerShot G7X Mark II builds-upon its predecessor to become one of the most attractive pocket compacts for enthusiasts. It shares the same core premise as the original, delivering a comfortable step-up in quality and control over a typical...

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...

Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II review

 

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 ; Optical image stabilization

No viewfinder ; Screen not fully articulating ; Limited zoom range ; 1080p video capture

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: The G7 X Mark II is a good choice when you're ready to step up to better photos

 

Canon's changes to the G7 X make its successor a much better 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.

The G7 X Mark II is a good choice when you're ready to step up to better photos

 

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...
