Canon Powershot G7 X Review (and comparison to Sony’s RX100s)

Reviewed.com posted their detailed review of Canon’s new Powershot G7 X, and they compare it to Sony’s RX100 and RX100 II.

As you probably know, the G7 X is strongly suspected to feature the same sensor as the RX100 cameras, so it is interesting to see how and where these cameras differ one from the other. In Reviewed’s lab tests the G7 X performed as the 2 Sony’s in most areas. The G7 X has better color reproduction and maintains more details at high ISO’s, dynamic range was about the same.

From the conclusion:

Even with Canon making the belated leap to using a 1-inch type sensor, the G7 X had its work cut out for it. While we can knock Canon for dragging its heels on the issue, the G7 X is every bit the equal of the RX100 and RX100 II at a very attractive price. Sony’s new RX100 III’s viewfinder is certainly a trump card in the “Best Point and Shoot Ever” competition, but the G7 X is a credible alternative in a part of the market that has been Sony’s territory for years [...]

We think that the G7 X will be a great fit for people that are typically Canon shoppers that want a petite point-and-shoot with much higher image quality than you’ll find for less money. The Sony RX100s are hands-down better if you’re planning on capturing action, but the G7 X is a fine option for anyone else who just wants the best camera they can fit into their pocket.

The review comes with a lot of pics and covers all the details you may want from a serious review. To see more coverage of the Powershot G7 X click here.

J. Behiri Shots A Pre-Production Canon EOS 7D Mark II (video)

cinema5d‘s Johnnie Behiri felt the pulse of Canon’s new EOS 7D Mark II, especially for the video features. A pre-production model was used.

All in all the Canon 7D mark II offers surprisingly nice looking and clean video with lovely and accurate colors and no aliasing or moiré.

But also:

One or two years ago this camera would probably have sold like hot cakes. 5D mark III video in a much more affordable APS-C body and slow motion in full HD. But now that 4K is here for many the video might be too soft.

Canon still not implementing 4k video is a bad thing, and not very smart imo. The 5D Mark IV is rumored to have 4k. Let’s hope Canon starts to be less conservative.

Canon EOS 7D Mark II Hands-On Review (Dpreview)

EOS 7D Mark II Hands-On Review

 

Dpreview posted their hands-on review of the brand new Canon EOS 7D Mark II. An excerpt:

The 7D II offers the same ‘Intelligent Tracking and Recognition’ (iTR) mode introduced in the EOS-1D X, which uses colorinformation from the RGB sensor to identify and track subjects in conjunction with the AF system. Theoretically, this allows the camera to automatically select the appropriate AF point in order to stay on the initially focused subject. It should even detect faces to focus on them (outside of Live View).
