    Ultra Fantastic Camera!

    I wish I could give the awesome camera a higher rating than 5 stars. It really is one of the absolute best cameras I have ever owned, I decided I wanted a point and shoot camera for the times when I just didn't want to carry my full size camera. SO, I started doing some research to find one that would satisfy me. I am only an amateur photographer, but I won't settle for less than the best. The end result was a comparison between the Sony RX100 and this Canon G7X. So, I went to Best Buy to actually try them both. To hold them in my hands and play with them a little. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how the Sony was rated so highly. My personal comparison showed the canon to be FAR superior in many ways. One of the reasons the Sony reviews rated it highly was due to it having an pop up view finder. I tried it.....and it is so flimsy and fragile that I was afraid I would break it. The Canon doesn't have this feature, but is manufactured so well that It's an engineering wonder. I urge you to take a very close look at this G7X before making a final buying decision. It's so well built.....I just cannot find the words to do it justice. And the features that is does have? Wow! I love the fact that us will shoot raw photos. I love the auto focus feature that keeps the moving part of your picture in focus. I love the beautiful touch screen and the way the screen folds out. I love the built in wireless and how well it works. The locations of the controls and the ease of operation. I could go on and on about this camera. And, it costs quite a bit less than the Sony. I've had this G7X for a couple of months now and am so happy with it that I'd strongly recommend it to anyone looking for a really good point and shoot camera with features that you usually only see on a full size DSLR. No.....it wont replace the full size DSLR, and you can still do far more with the full size DSLR. But, if your looking for a point and shoot that will satisfy you when you don't have your DSLR, here it is,..... It doesn't zoom as much as I'd like, or get you in as close as a DSLR with a zoom lens, but that is about the only real disadvantage I can find on this camera. But within the normal range of this lens it can't be beat. If you need to be able to shoot pictures that are at a distance, and bring them close........then you may not be so happy with the G7X. But hey, there is no single camera that does it all, is there? They all have their pro's and con's. But if you need image stabilization, excellent auto focus, fast FPS, and the ability to shoot in the raw format...and great built in wireless....This is by far the best choice for a point and shoot. Don't take my word for it. Go to your local camera store and compare it to the Sony and You will see what I'm talking about.

    Amazing Compact Digital Camera

    This camera DOES NOT use dual pixel AF or any other phase detect AF system in it. Manage your autofocus expectations accordingly. Especially in low light and in video. However, it does have a noticeable improvement in speed over its predecessor and for most situations it's fine. What this camera excels at, just like its predecessor, is stills. It has excellent low and mid ISO image quality. I prefer the Fine Detail setting as my picture style as it provide excellent sharpness and punchy, great-looking colors by default. But there are a number of other picture styles to suit your tastes. I also love that this camera now has in camera raw processing, which can be useful.It seems also like Canon has quietly made some improvements to the lens because it seems a bit sharper than the one on the G7X even though they are supposed to be the same. Video quality is also excellent and quite sharp. The autofocus is pretty good but because it's contrast detect, you will see a little bit of back and forth motion with the focus from time but otherwise it's not bad. Great for casual uses such as vlogging. The camera controls are well laid-out. I like the chunkier grip and that the exposure comp dial has better feedback to it. The one its predecessor could be a little hard to turn (but kudos to Canon for at least including one - Sony RX100 has no such dial on top). The LCD is bright and clear and also is more flexible, which means it's a lot easier to compose on in bright sunlight. Battery life is not stellar but once again, this also an improvement over the original G7X. It should last you a day of shooting. Complaints? I think the major one is, and this seems to be an issue on both the G7X and the RX100 series cameras, is that dust can easily get inside the lens. Even though the camera has a built-in automatic lens cap, it does a poor job at keeping dust and other particles out. But overall, a great enthusiast compact camera. The 1" Sony sensor inside is still relatively small compared to APSC rebels or mirrorless but it punches above its weight in image quality. If you really don't see yourself going much beyond the kit lens if you were to buy a Rebel, this could be a great alternative. It takes great photos and video, has improved AF and battery life over the original, and it comfortable to shoot with.

    We began purchasing Canon Powershot cameras back in 2003 with the A series and have been through six - upgrading each along the way. In general, we love the Powershots and how well they hold up. I take a lot of pictures and have taken in excess of 75,000 pictures on each of the cameras before we upgrade. Prior to this purchase we were using the G15 and I didn't think it could get any better, but the G7 Mark II has completely impressed me. Out of the box, it is smaller and lighter than the G15 and other Powershots that came before. I have been a fan of the flip and twist LCD but I realize it adds bulk. The new flip up design of this LCD is surprisingly useful and they still managed to package it into a smaller case. In general, the shooting options seem identical to the prior versions but seem more accessible as they are easily selected either by dial or touchscreen. There are also some great bonus features like face recognition with identification that allows for data to be imprinted into the file for future searching. As I have come to expect from Canon, the picture quality stands out. I have especially been impressed at the low light capabilities. In fact, I am learning to "trust" the camera more and more as I play around with situations in which I would expect to need a flash and yet the camera doesn't indicate the need. You virtually always get a better picture when you don't have to rely upon a flash and this camera allows you to to get those pictures more often. In summary, I highly recommend the G7 Mark II to anyone looking for the convenience of a point and shoot but still wanting the ability to create high quality photos.

    I finally found a point and shoot camera that I love! This is the perfect camera to travel with. I recently took it on a trip where I visited a lot of museums and insides of churches (low light environments). I took about 5000 pictures! It worked very well in low light situations and captured images that I could not have gotten with other cameras since it goes down to a 1.8 aperture. (I think my Rebel with its kit lens would not have been able to capture the pictures that I took with this little camera.) It worked great in the sun, too. It has a special scene mode called "hand-held night" that captured beautiful night images--even through a bus window while moving. I found the battery life to be very good. I have it set to ECO mode in the menu. I brought 4 batteries with me, but never needed more than 2 batteries in a day. It is small enough to fit in my fanny pack or shoulder bag yet has a good solid feel. The only thing missing is a panorama mode. I mostly left it on Auto or P mode and had peace of mind knowing it was probably going to get the shot. It had trouble with selfies--either the person or the background would be out of focus. You can fix this by putting it on Av mode and picking a small aperture. It cost a lot of money, but well worth it.

    This is an AWESOME camera!!! It's a worthy replacement for my old Canon G12 that served me well for many years, although the G7X Mark II is a bit smaller and lighter (which isn't a bad thing), I tried both this and the Canon Powershot G5X, and in the end, I kept the G7X Mark II and returned the G5X. Nothing really wrong with the G5 X, but I felt the G7X was superior for my needs and preferences, particularly low light indoor action shots (basketball). I also think the G7X produces richer tones and colors - more of the Canon "pop" with high saturation that I prefer. These differences were very subtle, but those were the deciding factors for me personally. Both cameras are great though, and it really just comes down to preference. If you prefer an actual viewfinder, then the G5X is the camera for you... I will also add that Best Buy handled the refund / exchange for me flawlessly, with a smile! Great service - thank you! Also, as a side note - this camera works for my needs for low light indoor action shots (my son's basketball games), BUT any compact camera like this has limited focusing capabilities in such a setting - you won't get the same results as a true DSLR in that type situation. However, you also don't have all the heavy bulk to haul around! In most other cases (outdoor action shots and portrait photography), this camera will rival even a true DSLR in quality - it's an awesome travel camera for even a pro!!! I've had it for 2 months now and LOVE IT!!!!

    OK. Although the video on this camera is very good, I am not a vlogger and I am writing this review from a casual photographers point of view. I wanted a new camera and wasn't sure I was ready for a DSLR. I've had other point-and-shoot cameras that were "OK". The main problem I had was shooting in low light without streaks or other artifact. Enter the Powershot G7X MII. This camera fits the bill. Even on full auto, pictures are amazing in daylight and night scenes. Great color and sharpness. This camera also has many manual settings that I have started to play with and learned how to improve the quality in different situations. It shoots RAW and JPEG and you can shoot both simultaneously. It's a little more than I though I would spend on a point-and-shoot camera but with an f1.8-f2.8 lens with a 1" sensor I am not having buyers remorse. This camera is fantastic! I've seen other reviews about battery life being mediocre. I can say I have not had this problem. I bought another genuine Canon battery to have on hand but so far I haven't had to use it.

    I use this camera for my entertainment purposes for youtube vides/facebook. The adjustable frame rate for time laps was the big pusher for me buying this camera and it was well worth it, excellent on par quality. The only negative was that it does not contain an external mic port which is the only somewhat bad thing, but the mic is very persistent. To give an idea I was recently filming a 1980 camera fully stocked out at 650 horse power being revved up inside of a garage, to us it was loud and beautiful, thinking that the mic will be blurted, after reviewing footage it picked up what could be used as a sound clip dub over for movies. so the sound was on par. The camera does have weight to it and once you hold it you will understand why, it's very strong feeling being made out of almost all metal. This camera does have a variety of different functions/features on it which would be better explained through best buy or the canon website or youtube. I always do my research on an electronic item before buying, I had reviewed over a hundred cameras for 8 months and kept leaning towards the canon g7x mark ii. Definitely check it you do your research and come into the store to see it first hand. Also to add the camera stabilizer (if your walking the shot will keep it steady vs shaking) is incredible. I use a car mount and this keeps pretty straight and steady on gravel, highways etc. also great for using your time lapse feature. It's well worth every penny, I worked a lot of overtime to afford this camera and I do not regret it.

    This camera was releasing on June 9th, but I didn't see any availability online. It was on and off with the pre-order button, so I decided to click on the pre-order on June 10th, and I received my G7X Mark II on June 14. After that, it was "sold out online" until June 18th(today). I love this camera, it has all the function that I need. I was planning to get the G7X two weeks before this camera came out, but finally heard this one is releasing, so I decided to wait for the upgrade. It is a very easy to use camera for beginning. The only thing bothers me is the battery cover, it doesn't close when u push it back to close, you have to use both hands to close the battery cover. other than that, I love this camera and I will use it for more videos for my vlogs.
