Photography Blog reviewed Canon’s new premium compact camera with a large 1″ sensor, the Canon PowerShot G7X II.

From the conclusion:

Although owners of the original Canon PowerShot G7 X won’t be too excited by the improvements on offer, the new Mark II does represent a step forward for Canon’s premium pocket compact camera, particularly in its operational speed. Continuous shooting rates, auto-focusing speed and general all-round performance have been boosted by the impressive Digic 7 processor, while image quality is subsequently slightly better too. Read the review…

The review is fairly positive about the Powershot G7X Mark II, giving it a 4.5/5 stars and a “highly recommended”. However, they also write:

[…] the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II does just enough to keep up with the main competition, although the continued lack of any kind of viewfinder, optical or electronic, gives the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 Mk IV the edge. If you don’t value that feature, though, then this new camera remains a serious rival to Sony’s offering.

Shooting the Aurora Borealis handheld with a 4M ISO Canon ME20F-SH camera

Shooting The Aurora Borealis Handheld With A 4M ISO Canon ME20F-SH Camera

This is not the first Aurora Borealis video shot with the Canon ME20F-SH and posted by Aurora Skycam, though I think this one is more impressing.

The ME20F-SH was used, a special full-frame Canon camera that goes up to ISO 4M (yes ISO, 4,000,000). The camera was hand-held during a flight with Norwegian Airlines at 36000 ft and while cruising at 800 km/h. The video was shot at ISO 102.000, 50fps, 1/50 sec. There is some beautiful footage in the video below, and the best thing is: there is more to come soon (according to the makers).

The Canon ME20F-SH is a speciality camera, with a special price: it’s yours for a mere $20,000.

Canon ME20F-SH at a glance:

  • Up to 4 Million ISO & 12 Stops DR
  • Full Frame 35mm CMOS Sensor
  • Canon DIGIC DV 4
  • Full HD up to 60p
  • HD/3G-SDI & HDMI Connectors
  • Canon Locking Cinema EF Lens Mount
