Canon G7 X Mark II Is Powerful Point and Shoot Camera

June 15, 2016

Smartphone cameras are very powerful, but they aren’t always enough to capture the photos you want. DSLRs are more expensive and too bulky to carry in your pocket. Point and shoot cameras are a good compromise between the two. A really good point and shoot is the Canon G7 X Mark II shown below.


Megapixels aren’t the ultimate measure of a camera, by 20.1 megapixels is really good with a relatively big 1″ CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 7 image processor. There is optical zoom of 4.2x which gives you the equivalent of a 100mm DLSR lens. Photos can be captured in both JPG and RAW formats at up to 8 frames per second. Video can be shot in 1080p with stereo sound.

On the back of the camera is a 3″ LCD screen that can be tilted to the best viewing angle. This can be very handy if you are holding the camera very high or low and still want to see what image is being captured. Built-in WiFi makes it easy to share the photos directly to a computer, mobile device or social networks. It also has NFC so that the camera can be controlled by an Android app.

All in all, this is a very powerful digital camera capable of capturing high quality images. It is not the lowest priced point and shoot, but it also delivers a lot more than cheaper models.
