Canon unveiled G7 X Mark II, which is the second version of its KOMPAKTA for advanced users. How far-reaching are the changes from its predecessor?
Canon G7 X Mark II is equipped with a matrix of BSI-CMOS sensor with a resolution of 20.1 megapixels and a zoom lens with focal lengths of 24-100 equivalent for full frame. The upside is definitely the brightness of the lens – f / 1.8-2.8. For processing and saving images corresponds DIGIC VII, which gives high yield – will be able to shoot at 8 frames per second in RAW format. ISO range is 125-25600 however, although taking into account the brightness of the lens, with the highest values we will not have often. Additionally, the camera comes with image stabilization.
Faster and more efficient
The manufacturer has put on big improvement. Both in terms of speed and ergonomics of the second generation of a compact. So we finally grip for easy grip and slip leveling, as well as function dial on the lens. There were also dial in the upper part of the body, which not only allows you to choose between different modes, but also serves to set the exposure compensation. The camera display is biased and touch, about the size of 3 inches. Its resolution of 1,040 million points provide a good quality preview. Touch in turn, can be useful when setting the AF points.Better is a battery – manufacturer declares that it will provide 25 percent more performance, and thus allow for the execution of 265 pictures on a single charge. After all, this is still the result of the average, because today the standard is the result of over three hundred images. However, we can enjoy that will at least be better than its predecessor. In this model, Canon has not forgotten about the filming. They can not give them very much, but at least gives a minimum – Full HD 60 fps, which for this producer is not so obvious. We get also feature time-lapse movies. The camera is also equipped with a module Wi-Fi and NFC. The new software also gives a lot of interesting features, unknown to its predecessor. We'll get among other things, the ability to edit images directly in the camera or the menu "style images" familiar with the more advanced models of the manufacturer. To sell the camera is hit in May of this year, and its planned price is $ 700. If the price in Poland will amount to 2.5-2.7 thousand. we can have an interesting model that could compete even with a little better, but more expensive model from Sony RX100 IV.
