Japanese version

Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-02-22

The camera I got was the Japanese version, with everything set up in Japanese and a Japanese manual (no English). Even when I downloaded a US manual, clearly the menus on the camera for the Japanese model are different than the US model. Seems like some functionality is missing. I bought from B&H because it was in stock and they shipped fast. Just beware of what you are getting.

Can I make a quality 16x20 from this camera?

Can I make a quality 16x20 from this camera?
Asked by: Bob
The Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II Digital Camera (Silver) is a point and shoot with a one inch sensor. Larger than some but much smaller than other cameras. You can get a 16x20 print out of this. But that is large print and it really depends on the specific image as to the quality of making a print that large.
