Canon PowerShot G9 X

 

Back in 2009, Canon revitalised the enthusiast compact camera market with the PowerShot S90, a pocket-sized model with lots of external controls, raw format recording and above-average image quality. With its unusually fast f/1.8 aperture at wide-angle...

Canon PowerShot G9 X review: Touching the void

 

On the evidence of the Canon PowerShot G9 X it's time to wave goodbye to the company's older, small-sensor PowerShot cameras. Why? Because the G9 X packs a large 1-inch sensor size into a slender body, making a good case to out-and-out replace models...

Slim design and good looks, capable autofocus system, good image quality to ISO 1600, dabbling with the future in touchscreen-based controls

The G7 X makes a lot more sense, Auto ISO opts for high sensitivities, limited zoom range and max aperture, no tilt-angle screen, odd shutter position, no d-pad

The Canon PowerShot G9 X is an accomplished compact camera, but one that feels like a fill-in for the company's wider 1-inch sensor range, not quite a knock-out product in its own right. It does show off some interesting work-in-progress ideas such as...

Canon PowerShot G9 X review

 

Canon's new super-slim G9X shares the same sensor as the highly praised G7 X, so expectations are high

Small size ; Large sensor ; Touch sensitive screen ; Inbuilt Wi-Fi

Few physical buttons, Short zoom range ; Narrow aperture at maximum zoom

The G9 X delivers great image quality and shows it is possible to cram a bigger sensor into a smaller body. The reliance on touch-screen control won't suit everyone, though, and the zoom range is modest.

Canon G9 X review - All the right ingredients

 

Slim, straightforward and takes excellent pictures - the Canon G9X is a recipe for success.

I’d have loved to see better battery life, nippier performance and slightly more to grip onto on the front of the camera. However, the concept is so strong that these drawbacks pale into insignificance. This is a camera that no one could complain is...

Canon PowerShot G9 X review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Canon PowerShot G9 X follows on from last year's PowerShot G7 X by putting a large 1-inch sensor into the body of a compact camera, promising near DSLR-quality photos from something small enough to shove into a pocket. It's a cheaper model than the...

A change in how review loans are authorised is the reason that there has been an interregnum since the last review from me. Hopefully now I can get back to telling you about the latest offerings from this iconic name in cameras and more.

Canon Powershot G9 X Review

 

The new Canon Powershot G9 X is Canon's most compact camera with a 1inch CMOS sensor for improved image quality.

Great image quality ; Good noise performance ; Great 3inch touch-screen - easy to use, responsive ; Stylish and compact metal camera body ; Good battery life with Eco mode switched on ; Numerous creative effects ; Manual video mode

Only 3x optical zoom lens ; Does not feature any high-speed video modes ; Does not feature a panoramic shooting mode ; Slow continuous shooting with raw option selected

The Canon Powershot G9 X is a compact and stylish digital camera that is designed to be small and pocketable whilst still delivering excellent image quality. Thankfully this is something the G9 X is highly capable of, with bright colourful images that...

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.
