Canon Powershot G7 X Hands-On Review (Dpreview)

 Powershot G7 X

Dpreview posted their hands-on review of the Powershot G7 X. An excerpt:

As far as autofocus is concerned, the G7 X features a 31-point contrast-detection AF system (not hybrid). We’ve only used a pre-production sample but our initial impressions of focus speed are very positive. No doubt the tendency to focus with the lens’ aperture wide open – regardless of the shooting aperture – keeps AF working fast and reliably, even in lower light.

Humor: Watch the “Creepiest Canon Camera Review Ever” (NSFW)

Reviewer “Frank Lasagna” compares the Canon EOS 6D vs the Rebel T5i, and he does it on his own way. For instance, he tests high ISO performance spying his neighbour’s wife at night with a zoom. AF is tested while the subject is “fleeing”. The video is a parody of Dave Dougdale’s comparison of the EOS 60D vs the Rebel T4i.

There is more weirdness in the video, and also some strong language. So I would say it’s NSFW.
