Canon Powershot G5 X Review (Photography Blog)

Photography Blog tested Canon’s new pocket-sized, 1 inch sensor Powershot camera, the Canon PowerShot G5 X.

The Canon PowerShot G5 X is an excellent compact camera for enthusiast photographers, offering a very good built-in viewfinder, a fast lens, a wealth of options for shooting both stills and video, excellent image quality, speedy auto-focusing, intuitive and configurable handling, and solid construction. The 4.2x zoom lens may limit its appeal somewhat, as will the lack of 4K video recording, but for us, the new G5 X is the best-balanced model out of the G3 X, G5 X and G9 X range. Read the review…
