Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II Review
Canon Powershot G7 X Mark II is meant for both amateur and professional photographers thanks to convenience of use, high performance and compact design. This digital camera not only clicks excellent photos and videos but can also connect with other devices wirelessly for easy sharing of media. It has a 1.0-inch, 20.1Mp CMOS sensor with the DIGIC 7 Image Processor and thus delivers outstanding quality of images in different light conditions.
The sleek and sophisticated Canon-Powershot-G7-X-Mark-II is a fantastic digital camera from Canon. The moment you open the Canon Powershot G7X case, you are going to fall in love with its design. The powerful zoom ensures shake-free images (virtually). The Multi-angle 3.0" capacitive LCD touch panel has a screen resolution of 1.04 million dots and offers tilt options of 180° up and 45° down. Connecting through Wi-Fi and NFC is easy and so does carrying this camera around.
What is the design ?
Canon Powershot G7 X Mark II has a sleek body and a compact profile. The body is shining black in colour and is pleasing to the eyes. Compare Canon Powershot G7 X vs Sony RX100, you will find that the latter is 21 grams lighter, but the difference is not major and you can easily manage this Canon camera as you travel around with it.
What is the performance ?
Performance wise you will not have issues with your Canon Powershot G7 X Mark II. The performance is enhanced thanks to the simplistic features of this camera and yet they together make this a highly successful camera. From the 1-point AF with small or normal focus area sizes to the prioritized face detection, this camera responds quickly and you are sure delighted when you can easily move the focus area of your image using the touchscreen feature. There is a slight challenge when you have to capture moving subjects and close-up focus could seem stunted. And manual focus somehow seems easier to manage than autofocus.
What is the image quality ?
Canon Powershot G7 X Mark II has a 1-inch 20.2-megapixel sensor, larger than what you find in many other cameras. This allows you to click professional photos without being a professional. The Digic 7 processor, Canon offers refinement in the photos that are clicked using it. The wide aperture lens really opens up due to the presence of the ND (Neutral Density) filter and ensures that there is no overexposure. The aperture performs well - the f/2.8 aperture comes into action from 60mm and beyond and lets you click wide-angle photos at will. The details of the images are there and you don't find too many grains either.
Conclusion: Should I buy it ?
Canon Powershot G7 X Mark II is an impressive camera and while it may not have the best in class features, it does capture excellent photos and videos. There is no viewfinder though, but this disadvantage is more than overpowered by the excellent features that this camera provides to you. The Canon Powershot G7 X price could set you back though and you would want to consider some of the other cameras with similar features before going ahead.
