Canon PowerShot G7 X Digital Camera
The Canon PowerShot G7 X offers excellent photo quality for its class, using the same one-inch, 20.2-megapixel CMOS sensor we’ve also seen in the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III. The similarities end there, however, with the G7 X using a different lens and Canon’s Digic 6 Image Processor. Despite a fast lens, overall performance of this camera isn’t amazing although a sluggish autofocus has been a constant with the G series cameras; fortunately, when it comes to continuous shooting, the G7 X is actually quite quick for its class.
Another somewhat disappointing aspect of the G7 X is its connectivity (although it does include WiFi with NFC), with Canon having chosen to make it somewhat difficult to upload things directly from the camera. Despite these relative shortcomings, the PowerShot G7 X offers excellent photo quality and very good video quality, even in low light conditions.
The camera includes several automatic features that are used together with the flip-up touchscreen LCD, with making selfie-taking easier in mind. While the G7 X doesn’t include a hot shoe, its streamlined design make it easy to hold and use; the camera seems to have been designed more for the buyer willing to pay for a more advanced compact camera minus the manual controls most experienced photographers prefer. The Canon PowerShot G7 X is small, portable, and delivers better photo and video quality than many competitors. If you’re looking for a camera that’s easy to use but still more advanced than a less expensive compact camera, this is a good option.
