Interview With Canon About EOS 7D Mark II Development

EOS 7D Mark II

dc.watch posted a long interview with Canon about the development of the EOS 7D Mark II. Unfortunately (for us) the interview is in Japanese and the only way to access it is via machine translation. From the interview:

What is the difference between the EOS 70D and the EOS 7D Mark II sensor?

[…] in order to improve the high-sensitivity characteristics, we have adopted a new process in the semiconductor manufacturing process.

You can pre-order the EOS 7D Mark II and in that way help Canon Watch without paying a penny more. All pre-order links after the break.

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.
