Fighting RX100 Mark II?
Canon G7 X looks great, but somewhere already seen earlier
Canon decided to conquer and introduced a new representative of advanced compact line G. The described system is quite small, very interestingly designed (note the ruby color accents) and makes – on paper – a great impression. G7 X immediately makes while to think about kompaktami Sony – RX100, RX100, RX100 Mark II and Mark III – functioning on the basis of a similar specification. The heart of the camera is 1-inch display with a resolution of 20 megapixels, supported by rear illumination (BSI) and 6 DIGIC with iSAPS technology. The result is not only support ISO 100 to 12800, but also the ability to shoot Full HD (1920 x 1080) at 60 frames per second. What else? It is worth noting the presence of continuous shooting at 6.5 frames per second. As in the RX100 series, the minimum shutter speed is 1/2000 seconds here. That is why Canon decided to integrate the Compact gray filter, allowing you to shoot with a wider aperture open even in intense sunlight.
The key is ergonomics
Waived screen and unusual dial
G7 X had nada to self-portraits, thanks uchylanemu 180 degrees LCD screen. Unfortunately, we do not find here the hot shoe, which allow you to connect an external viewfinder – the manufacturer has not attempted to join with the integrated viewfinder, so framing is done exclusively through said 3-inch monitorek.However, Canon took care of proper ergonomics. As you will notice on the top panel space has been created for "two knobs in one", where in addition to the option of changing shooting modes, we also have exposure compensation +/- 3 EV. The great thing is a control ring that surrounds the lens G7 X (covering focal lengths equivalent to 24-100 mm and aperture of f / 1.8-2.8). The camera offers further possibilities for pairing with smartphones and tablets using the modules Wi-Fi and NFC. We not only share photos but send our materials to the cloud Canon iMAGE GATEWAY4.
