Canon PowerShot G9 X

 

The Canon PowerShot G9 X is the smallest camera you can get with a 1-inch image sensor, but it has a limited zoom range and is very slow when shooting in Raw format.

Sharp lens. 1-inch image sensor. Very compact. Lens control ring. Touch-sensitive LCD. Fun Creative Shot mode. Wi-Fi.

Limited zoom range. Narrow telephoto aperture. Largely touch-based control system. Slow when shooting Raw. Video tops out at 1080p30.

Conclusions With the PowerShot G9 X, Canon is doing its best to bring the image quality advantage of a 1-inch compact to the consumer market. But even though it's no slouch when it comes to image quality, it really slows you down if you opt to shoot in...

Canon gives in, goes retro for its new PowerShot G9 X point-and-shoot compact

 

The camera is designed for the same use who's been waiting for an update to the PowerShot S120.

Canon PowerShot G9 X

Canon PowerShot G9 X Review

 

The Canon PowerShot G9 X is the latest of Canon's premium compact cameras. Announced at the same time as the G5 X, it features the same one-inch type, 20.2 million pixel CMOS sensor as last year's G7 X. Not a replacement for the G7 X, rather the G9 X...

Once again Canon has produced a very appealing compact camera for those looking for something which is pocket friendly but retains many of the high quality features which something bigger and more advanced has.

Canon G9X Review

 

The Canon G9X is the smallest 1-inch sensor camera to date. Slip it in a pocket and you can forget it's even there, but pull it out and you have the great image quality of a 1-inch sensor on tap. And getting images onto your phone couldn't be easier,...

Smallest 1-inch sensor camera available; Slips in a pants pocket almost unnoticed; Bright lens at wide-angle; Great image quality; Swift 6.5 fps JPEG burst shooting; Intuitive touch-screen control; In-camera Wi-Fi gets images onto your phone easily

Limited 3x zoom range; Tighter wide-angle than competitors; JPEG buffer limited to 10 frames; very slow bracketing / raw burst shooting; Touch-screen menus take lots of tapping; Poor battery life

Canon PowerShot G9 X: Great Pics for the Price

 

You will certainly get nice still images with the G9 X. Although video quality is just OK, still images are often comparable to those of higher-end bridge cameras such as Sony's RX100 III or even Canon's own PowerShot G7 X . All of this comes in a very...

Compact design ; Handy touch screen ; Fine image quality by day and night

So-so video

This small, pocketable camera takes great photos for the price, but the Canon PowerShot G9 X's video quality disappoints.

Canon G9X review

 

The Canon PowerShot G9X is a slim compact with a larger than average 1in sensor. Announced in October 2015 alongside the higher-end G5X, it's aimed at those who want a step-up in quality over a phone or typical point-and-shoot, but in the smallest...

Smallest conventional camera with a 1in sensor ; Very capable touch-screen. Quick and easy to control ; Full manual control over exposure and focus ; Built-in Wifi with NFC and good smartphone control ; USB charging in-camera but also supplied with AC...

Basic 3x optical zoom. A little soft at 28mm in corners ; Lens focal ratio slows down at 84mm to f4.9 ; No viewfinder. Screen doesn't tilt either ; No in-camera panorama mode ; Burst speed in RAW is very slow

Canon's PowerShot G9X represents the continuing evolution of pocket cameras: small and smart like many of its predecessors, but crucially packing a larger 1in sensor. The sensor is the key here as it's three to four times larger than those in most...
