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.

Canon Powershot G7 X Features A Sony BSI-CMOS Sensor

A lot suggests the Canon Powershot G7 X is featuring a Sony 20-MP 1” BSI CMOS sensor. The same sensor that’s mounted on the Sony RX100 III and Panasonic FZ1000.

In a meeting with Dpreview‘s staff, Canon stated that the sensor in the Powershot G7 X is a “BSI-CMOS” sensor, and that the sensor is not manufactured by Canon.

A similar hint comes from PetaPixel in their G7 X vs RX100 III comparison. They write:

Surprisingly the Canon G7 X and Sony RX100 III could be stepbrothers. Canon allegedly admitted the 20MP 1″ sensor was not developed internally, fueling speculations that G7 X could be using the same Sony 20-MP 1” BSI CMOS sensor. Any difference between the two rivals can be attributed to the lens and design philosophy of the engineering teams from both sides.

Thom Hogan from gearophile writes:

What we get in the US$700 G7 X is the Sony 20mp 1” sensor coupled with a 24-100mm (equivalent) f/1.8-2.8 lens, a 1m dot touchscreen, a built in ND filter, 1080P/60 video and some other PowerShot stuff. […] it even has a “selfie” mode.

As you can see, it appears the Powershot G7 X is indeed featuring Sony’s sensor. A Sony 1 inch sensor coupled with Canon’s excellent optics sounds good to me. The G7 X has a longer zoom range than the Sony RX 100 III.

There is also a serious hint by Canon itself that they are working on another compact camera with possibly an 1 inch sensor. And that’s not all, another hint by Canon itself suggests the company is researching the possibility of developing a new mount type, and that they could join the m4/3 standard.

Is Canon changing strategies and opening to sensors made by other manufacturers? What do you think?

Canon’s new super-small camera with an 1 inch sensor and WiFi is already shipping at DigitalRev for €629/$699. The PowerShot G7 X will be available in October 201. Pre-order at Adorama | B&H Photo | Amazon.

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.
