Canon G9X Mark II

 

Canon GX9X Mark II review: A compact camera with a DSLR-quality processor and excellent handling

Slimline, pocketable design ; Good image quality from 1-inch sensor ; Well-implemented touchscreen ; Excellent in-camera JPEG processing

Unambitious lens ; Limited physical controls ; No 4K video recording

The G9X Mark II utilises on-chip contrast detection for autofocus, and on the whole it’s fast, quiet and accurate. The desired focus point can be selected by tapping the touchscreen, or alternatively you can use face detection or defer focus area...

Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II review: Touchscreen camera power in your pocket

 

The G9 X Mark II is as much a success as it is a missed opportunity. Compared to the original G9 X model very little has changed. We'd like to see a

Pocketable design ; Decent image quality from 1-inch sensor ; Touschreen controls ; Works well enough in variety of lighting conditions

No tilt-angle screen feels restrictive ; Limited zoom range ; Limited maximum aperture at full zoom ; The G7 X II is a more logical proposition

The G9 X Mark II is as much a success as it is a missed opportunity. Compared to the original G9 X model very little has changed. We’d like to see a bracket-mounted touchscreen, for the shutter button to be in a more sensibly placed, and for autofocus...

Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II review

 

A pocket powerhouse of a compact

Compact size ; Simple to use ; Premium finish ; Large, 1.0-inch sensor ; Decent connectivity

Only 1080p video capture ; Touch interface not for everyone ; Limited zoom range

The Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II sets itself apart from the competition thanks to its dinky proportions, but this does mean there are a few small sacrifices to be made. However, if you're looking for a neat compact camera that delivers vastly superior...

Canon Powershot G9 X Mark II Review

 

We review the Canon Powershot G9 X Mark II, the premium camera with a 20 megapixel 1inch CMOS sensor, 3x optical zoom, and 3inch touch-screen.

The Canon Powershot G9 X Mark II is compact and stylish, and one of the smallest cameras available that delivers high image quality, thanks to the use of a 1inch BSI CMOS sensor. Having to use the 3inch touch-screen to change controls may not be to...

It may take more than the features on the Powershot G9X Mark II to convince smartphone users to shell out extra for an additional camera and carry it on their travels.

Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II Review

 

The PowerShot G9 X Mark II is Canon's latest entry-level 1" sensor compact. With a time-tested sensor, 28-84mm equiv. lens and an intuitive touchscreen interface, the G9 X II appears to be a smart choice for those upgrading from cheap compacts or...

The PowerShot G9 X Mark II is the second generation of Canon's entry-level 1"-sensor compact camera, and the company has made some nice improvements over the original mode. Burst shooting and buffer size are much better, the UI is a bit snappier and...

Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II

 

The Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II camera is more responsive than its predecessor, and squeezes a big 1-inch sensor into a compact frame.

Crisp lens. 1-inch image sensor. 8.1fps image capture. Touch LCD. Built-in ND filter. In-camera art filters. Wi-Fi. Quite compact.

Pricey. Short zoom. Narrow aperture when zoomed. No 60fps video option.

There is some stiff competition in this space. You can get the older Sony RX100 II for about the same price and enjoy a longer zoom range, but you won't get a touch screen. The next model up in Canon's line, the G7 X Mark II, is more expensive, but...
