Canon G9 X Mark II overview

  • 1Description

A sleek, pocketable, and quite capable camera, the black PowerShot G9 X Mark II from Canon mixes a compact form factor with advanced imaging capabilities. Pairing a 20.1MP 1" CMOS sensor with a DIGIC 7 image processor, this combination produces clean, high-resolution image quality well-suited to working in difficult lighting conditions, with extended sensitivity to ISO 12800, and also avails quick shooting performance up to 8.2 fps for working with moving subjects. Full HD 1080p video recording is also supported, as well as in-camera time-lapse movies for producing dynamic moving image content. Complementing the imaging capabilities is a versatile 3x optical zoom lens, which covers a wide-angle to portrait-length 28-84mm equivalent focal length range, and Dynamic IS benefits this reach by minimizing the appearance of camera shake. The slim camera body also features a 3.0" touchscreen LCD for intuitive control as well as built-in Wi-Fi with NFC and Bluetooth for wirelessly transferring imagery and remotely controlling the camera from a mobile device.

20.1MP 1" CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 7 Processor
A large 20.1MP 1" High-Sensitivity BSI CMOS sensor and DIGIC 7 image processor combine to create the Canon HS SYSTEM, which offers an expanded sensitivity range up to ISO 12800 and enhanced low-light performance with reduced image noise to benefit working in difficult conditions. The sensor and processor pairing also avails quick performance throughout the camera system, including an 8.2 fps continuous shooting rate, quick autofocus with subject tracking, and Full HD 1080p video recording at 60 fps, and the large sensor size contributes to rich image quality that is well-suited to printing and sharing work.
3x Optical Zoom Lens and Image Stabilization
The versatile 3x optical zoom lens covers a wide-angle to portrait-length 28-84mm equivalent focal length range, and features an f/2-4.9 maximum aperture along with Intelligent IS and Dual Sensing IS image stabilization technologies to benefit handheld shooting in difficult lighting conditions. Additionally, Dynamic IS can also be used to help stabilize videos and minimize the appearance of shake when recording while walking.
Body Design and Wireless Connectivity

  • Compact, pocket-sized form factor is ideal for carrying with you at all times.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows you to wirelessly transfer images to a linked mobile device and Bluetooth pairing allows you to easily connect to smartphones or tablets to permit remote control over the camera from your device using the Canon Camera Connect app.
  • The included NB-13L rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides approximately 235 shots per charge when working with the screen on, or approximately 315 shots per charge in ECO mode.
Other Camera Features
  • Time-Lapse Movie functions let you record a series of stills over a set time period, then automatically merge and output the time-lapse as a video for seamless playback.

Canon G9 X Mark II reviews

PowerShot G9 X Mark II Digital Camera (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Pocket Sized Camera This camera is used primarily as a backup when traveling, especially by air. I usually shoot with a 5D Mark III, a 1DX, a 6D or a 7D Mark II and carry an SL-1 as a backup. But when baggage limitations are a factor, I will carry one of the full size DSLRs and the G9X II as a backup. I purchased it to replace a Canon S100 which worked well for several years but doesn't have the image quality the G9X Mark II is capable of. the G9X II is loaded with features and works well in several automatic modes but also allows full manual control for the serious photographer. Considering the size, weight and price, this camera is a spectacular performer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All in all, the best 1-inch sensosr camera I have used. An excellent 1 inch sensor camera. I bought it because it has few buttons on the back right side of the camera to accidently press...I have fairly large hands. It is much better than most small cameras in this respect, but is not infallible by any means. I have tried ALL the 1 inch sensor cameras and this is the first one I am keeping. Excellent image quality and typical Canon menus which makes it easy to navigate. Also, the touch screen is excellent in its touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny power pack Love this--they pared down the encyclopedia of functions found on bigger semi-professional cameras to the funnest and most usable. Fits a niche, literally and figuratively, as it is so tiny and easy to keep anywhere. Some nice scene modes etc, but can take great photos if you use as like a conventional camera equipped with good features. No snags except at the moment impossible to sync it with my PC to operate wireless; have to connect via cable to download images. Could be the computer . . . ? Wireless works fine on Ipad and on ZTE phone. Info on correcting this is hard to find; Canon provided a good how-to when I contacted them but to no avail. Common frustration apparently, many hits when queried on the net, many suggestions . . . Small but ergonomic and pleasant to use. Love this and having lots of fun, kicked out a couple good shots just playing with it for a day or two.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The G9X Mark II is great for any photography enthusiast. I am an advanced amateur photographer and longtime Canon user. The Canon G9X Mark II is a small, lightweight, compact camera that produces very sharp images. I purchased this camera as an upgrade to the original Canon G9X. The G9X Mark II fits inside my pocket or on a belt loop case. Therefore, this point & shoot camera has the convenience of a a smartphone, produces photos superior to that of a smartphone, but eliminates all battery drain on my smartphone from taking photos. However, I do wish that Canon would have included an internal GPS with the camera body. I suppose it is not included due to substantial battery drain for GPS systems. The most important comment I have to say is that I find it comforting to know that purchasing any Canon product will always provide the user with top notch technical support if needed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good camera for digiscoping. Excellent camera, excellent images. I use this for digiscoping. I use a 49mm MagFilter attachment. The 52mm MagFilter attachment is too big for the zooming element. The 49 mm attachment - the external diameter of the ring - does not extend beyond the edge of the camera's zoom lens. I use a 49-to-52 mm step up ring adapter to fit my spotting scope's digital camera attachments. The 1 CCD and speed of the camera, along with aperature priority and shutter priority allows my to get good, non-fuzzy pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect little go-everywhere camera After a few weeks' acquaintance I am in love with this little thing. Small and light enough to take everywhere. Really great image quality - both RAW and JPEG. Quick and responsive even in RAW (which was not the case with the GX9, no Mark II, that I had earlier. Operations easily customized - now including the editable Picture Styles feature I'm used to from my 6D DSLR. Lens is an f/2 at 28mm, so it's fast at the angle I'm most likely to be using it indoors. Oh, and I really like the way it looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Pocket Camera Ive owned several Canon G and S series cameras and currently have a G9X. I updated to the G9X Mark II for the improved performance and discovered several other worthwhile improvements. The Mark II performance is noticeably better. Sequential shooting of RAW files is faster and can be used to capture motion at a DSLR-like rate of 4-8 frames/second. The built-in HDR function now takes 3 exposures very quickly, and user bracketing is equally fast. Focus tracking of moving subjects is greatly improved over the G9X, which often lost focus on moving subjects. Video image stabilization now works well with handheld video. Overall, the camera is noticeably faster and more responsive than the prior model. All G9X cameras allow various aspect ratios (4:3, 16:9, etc.) to be selected. In RAW the entire image is available for re-cropping in LightRoom, a real convenience. On the G9XII the playback display shows the entire image with crop marks indicating the chosen aspect ratio, a nice touch. The My Menu system has been expanded to allow multiple My Menu screens. I have one screen dedicated to all AF (focusing) parameters and I plan to add more custom menus. My Menu can be set to display first, allowing the user to configure a complete custom menu system of the users most-used settings with the factory menus relegated to the background. The camera has added a time-lapse video capability which is the best I have seen. The number of shots and time between shots are selected and the camera then displays both the time required to take the video and the resulting playback time. You can decide whether to meter each frame or base all exposures on the first frame (useful for fading sunsets to black). The screen can be disabled during time-lapse to extend battery life. And three time-lapse presets can be set up to remember favorite combinations. There isnt room for many push buttons on the camera and some people have complained about the lack of buttons. Canon uses all the existing controls and touch screen well. For example, when navigating menus the W-T Zoom lever and the lens control ring can be used to move between menu items. Once you learn the new user interface it is as useful as and possibly quicker than using buttons. Adobe ACR isnt yet supporting the G9XII so I cant comment on image quality from RAW. Since the lens and sensor are unchanged I assume the IQ will be similar to the G9X. Ive owned a Sony RX100 and a Canon G7X. Unlike those cameras, the G9X actually fits in a normal pocket. Thats this cameras selling point for me; its a camera Ill have with me. I recommend the G9XII to anyone who wants a quality camera that is easily carried in a pocket or purse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compliment to a DSLR I got this as a compact, everyday alternative to the Canon 7D and I'm really enjoying it. I take it everywhere because it literally fits in my pocket. It also has most of the important features of a DSLR (full manual mode, fast lens, RAW shooting, and exposure bracketing to name a few I use a lot). Image quality is solid as well. The low light performance and dynamic range is very good for the form factor and price point; I shoot at night a lot and the images are nice up to around ISO 3200. You can push it higher if you don't need as much detail in shadows. It's much better in low light than my (somewhat antiquated) 7D. The image stabilization is also very useful. Autofocus is reliable even in low light, but manual focus is clunky. Note that this doesn't have dual-pixel AF. The optics are also good. The aperture does drop off quickly as you zoom in, but the electronics and IS compensate for it. There is noticeable distortion at the shortest focal length but it's manageable. I haven't had issues with chromatic aberration on this one like with cheaper/older PowerShots. The user interface takes a bit of getting used to, and I do wish it had a dial on the back (it has a clicky ring around the lens instead). However, once you figure out where everything is, it doesn't get in the way. Custom menus are very useful and I have it set up so that all the settings I change regularly are accessible with two button clicks/screen taps. On reviewer complained about long delay between shots; I haven't experienced it and I suspect it might be due to a slow SD card. The one I got in the kit for free was garbage (10 MB/s write speed) so I upgraded to one with 95 MB/s write and it's been very snappy since. So yea. It's affordable, takes good photos and doesn't get in your way. What else does a compact camera need to do?
