Canon Powershot G5 X Review (ephotozine)

ephotozine reviewed the Canon PowerShot G5 X, a compact camera with an 1″ sensor and a lot of manual controls. It’s also a camera that is getting much attention from review sites. From ephotozine’s conclusion:

With a solid metal body and good handling the camera has the look of a mini Digital SLR, the camera has a number of advanced features which is to be expected of a serious compact camera, including full manual controls, raw shooting, and a flash hot-shoe. With a number of control rings (two on the front, and one on the back), and a dedicated exposure compensation dial, the camera is also easy to use, letting you quickly and easily change settings. You can also customise a number of controls, as well as what options are displayed when you use the Q (Quick) menu button. The camera can also be controlled using the touch-screen, however unlike the G9 X, there are still a number of external controls meaning you can use either the screen or the buttons. Read the review…

A reader wrote in the comment section of another featured Powershot G5 X review that he wished this was the body of the EOS M3. Couldn’t agree more.
