Canon PowerShot G7 X

 

Large sensor, fast lens, small body. What's not to like?

Excellent image quality ; Premium design with good physical controls ; Versatile 24-100mm lens

No hotshoe ; Dated AF system

You can’t expect everything in a camera this size, though, and there are enough manual controls to make using aperture/shutter priority modes a doddle. It’s one of the more compelling reasons to pick the G7 X over the Sony model, which relies a little...

Canon PowerShot G7 X review

 

The rise of the high-end compact camera has been gathering pace, with oodles of models well worth a look in 2014. Despite already offering plenty of quality products, it's taken Canon a little longer to get into the groove and deliver a large-sensor...

Great build quality, customisable lens control ring, decent low-mid ISO image quality with delicate processing, fast 24-100mm f/1.8-2.8 (equiv) lens, smaller than many G-series cameras, WiFi works well, touchscreen tilt-angle LCD screen

No viewfinder or facility to add one, high ISO image quality (over ISO 1600) not all that, zoom toggle control rather than lens zoom ring, battery is only so-so, Sony RX100 III a step ahead, where are the next-level autofocus features?

As the high-end compact camera war hots up, Canon's first dip into the 1-inch sensor market is a solid effort. If it was 2013 then Canon would have struck gold with the PowerShot G7 X. But what a difference a year makes, for the Sony Cyber-shot RX100...

Canon PowerShot G7 X review

 

We take a look at Canon's new small compact camera with a big sensor

A one-inch sensor in a compact body ; Large aperture for depth of field control and faster shutter speed ; High build quality

No viewfinder ; Tilting screen only, not vari-angle ; F/1.8 aperture only at the widest focal length

With a 1-inch 20.2-million-pixel sensor and high quality build, the G7X is a strong competitor against the Sony RX100 II. The lens control ring and touchscreen make settings adjustment quick and the image quality is excellent.

The Canon G7 X delivers SLR quality in a truly pocketable package, and the price is right.

Canon PowerShot G7 X review

 

Canon introduces a new sensor size into its product line with the enthusiast-targeted PowerShot G7 X: like Sony's RX series of advanced compacts, the G7 X features a 1-inch BSI (backside illuminated) sensor. At $700 (£580, approximately AU$775) the G7...

The Canon PowerShot G7 X delivers excellent photo quality for its class, along with a fine lens and relatively streamlined shooting design.

Its performance and connectivity implemenation don't impress, and some people may miss the hot shoe.

The Canon PowerShot G7 X would jump from very good to excellent if it could just pick up the pace.

Canon PowerShot G7X

 

Having recently looked at two DSLR units from Canon it is now time to try something smaller and lighter but the technology is still rife in this latest offering in the Canon PowerShot range, so what wonders does the G7X offer.

The Canon PowerShot G7X measures 10.5x6x3.8cm and weights 300grams, add 4cm to the last figure when the lens is fully zoomed. The right side has a flip door behind which are AV and HDMI connectors, below this is a flush button that will search for a...

Canon G7 X Powershot TIPA Review

 

Resolution:

The camera showed excellent results in the dynamic range tests. The Stouffer chart was reproduced with 11,2 f-stops which is a remarkable high result for a compact camera. Between ISO 200 and ISO 3200 the camera keeps this high level with 10 to 11...

The Canon Powershot G7 X has a useful 4.2x optical zoom lens, with a wide-angle equivalent of 24mm zooming to 100mm at the telephoto end, with a bright f/1.8 to f/2.8 aperture. The camera takes pleasing images with bright saturated colours and good...
