Review: Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II by DPReview
« on: December 14, 2017, 11:06:18 AM »
DPReview has completed their review of the Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II, Canon’s smallest 1″ sensor camera. The camera appears to be a bit of a mixed bag, as the user experience is quite good, but the camera is let down by a soft lens and poor battery life.

I looked long and hard at the PowerShot G9 X Mark II for my son, but I decided that the PowerShot G7 X Mark II was well worth the additional dollars.

From DPReview:

The PowerShot G9 X II is very appealing: it’s as small a traditionally styled camera with a 1″ sensor as you’ll find and its touch interface makes it easy to pick up and use. It has a broad feature set, generally responsive performance and shooting modes for both beginners and more advanced users.

As you’ve probably gathered by now, the G9 X II is let down by its lens, JPEG processing and battery life that requires buying at least one spare. If you’re set on a Canon, moving up to the PowerShot G7 X II is a smart idea, assuming that you have an extra $200 available. The Sony RX100 and RX100 II are also worth consideration, though we think that Canon offers a better user experience. Read the full review

Compared to Sony RX100 V, G7 X II is clearer a winner in my book.

Great job Canon!!!

I’m surprised Canon would put a soft lens on this camera. But, for internet postings, it’s probably more than adequate.

I have not found any softness, but then I do not pixel beep the corners to find errors. There probably is softness in the corners because of the distortion correction.
