Canon PowerShot G7X Review

Lisa Gade reviews the Canon PowerShot G7X compact camera that fits easily in the palm of your hand or a pocket.

It competes with the Sony RX100 mk 3, and in fact uses the same excellent 1" 20MP Sony BSI sensor. The Canon has a fast f/1.8-2.8, 24-100mm zoom lens that’s ideal for portraits with background separation (bokeh/depth of field).

It has full auto and full manual controls, a tilting touch screen with touch focus, a pop-up flash and customizable lens ring. It can shoot 1080p video at 60fps AVCHD and it has image stabilization.

Both image and video quality are very good with rich Canon colors and solid JEG rendering. It easily beats less expensive point and shoot thanks to the larger sensor and wide lens. If you’re looking for a higher end compact camera that fits in your pocket, it’s worth considering in addition to the Sony RX100 III if a long zoom and a touch screen appeal and you can live without an EVF. It lists for $699.
