PowerShot G9 X Mark II
Beauty and style outside. Advanced technology inside. Whether you’re snapping an unforgettable moment on the go or recording an epic video with your friends, the PowerShot G9 X Mark II camera combines an ultra-slim design with high-performing features for incredible image quality and easy portability. Packing a powerful 1.0-inch, 20.1 Megapixel1 CMOS sensor into a pocket-friendly size, it’s powered by the DIGIC 7 Image Processor for fast operation and features built-in Bluetooth2 connectivity for easy sharing. With the PowerShot G9 X Mark II, it’s easy to capture the precious times of your life in a stylishly stunning way.
1.0-inch CMOS Sensor
The PowerShot G9 X Mark II camera features a large 1.0-inch, 20.1 Megapixel1 CMOS sensor that helps capture high-quality images and videos. Its wide dynamic range helps ensure both bright and dark parts are fully captured, like the shadowy side of a building on a bright sunny day, or streetlights on a dark night. 20.1 Megapixels1 provide high-resolution photos for printing, viewing and additional flexibility during editing. Paired with the new DIGIC 7 Image Processor, it benefits from a fast shutter speed that helps reduce the chance of blur and combines with a high ISO for great low-light results.
DIGIC 7 Image Processor
The DIGIC 7 Image Processor helps speed up start-up time, operation time and continuous shooting, while providing noise reduction even at high ISO settings to help capture sharp, detailed images in virtually any lighting situation. Enhanced tracking and detection capabilities help lock onto your subject throughout the action, from improved face tracking to help keep your subject in focus, to Dual Sensing IS which helps minimize blur caused by camera shake and body movement. This results in clear, precise pictures even at slow shutter speeds.
Ultra-slim, Lightweight Camera
At only 7.3 ounces (206g), the PowerShot G9 X Mark II is a compact camera that can easily fit into a pocket or purse. Packing a large, high-quality image sensor and bright f/2.0 lens, it helps create high-quality photos, even in low light. This means you can have a camera within easy reach to capture detailed images that can show the texture of clothing fabric, the colors of a sunset or the stunning view of a city or landscape that takes your breath away.
Thanks to built-in Wi-Fi technology and the Canon Camera Connect app3, the PowerShot G9 X Mark II camera can transfer photos and videos to and from compatible devices, upload directly to various web services and more. Built-in NFC technology4 means it can connect directly to compatible devices by simply touching the NFC icon on the camera to the device.
Bluetooth2 pairing lets you easily connect to and remotely control the PowerShot G9 X Mark II from compatible smartphones using the free Canon Camera Connect app3. You can also establish a direct Wi-Fi connection to use your phone as a viewfinder, and check and download previously captured photos and videos.
Bright, 3x Optical Zoom
The PowerShot G9 X Mark II camera has a versatile zoom lens with a flexible optical zoom range, helping you capture wide shots like a big party scene or a gorgeous canyon, or zoom in for a wonderful close-up. The bright aperture goes as large as f/2.0, creating beautiful background blur to make your subject pop and helping you take clear photos in low light, often without a flash. Combined with Intelligent IS, it helps to ensure sharp and virtually shake-free images in many shooting situations.
Touch Panel LCD
The 3.0-inch touch panel is designed for easy operability so you can make adjustments while still being ready to snap a photo. The menus are customizable, meaning the settings you adjust frequently can be set to be easily accessible. You're also able to swipe quickly through photos you've taken, and tap the screen to easily adjust picture options and change what the camera is focusing on. In addition, the control ring around the lens can be rotated with your fingers to make adjustments to various settings, simplifying the process even further.
Full HD resolution helps ensure you can see the unique expressions of your family’s faces in close-up movies, or the trees, rocks and running wildlife of a mountain landscape in scenic videos. Dynamic IS helps keep the frame steady even when you’re walking, so you can keep up with any movement while minimizing unwanted blur. For additional creative options, a Time-Lapse Movie function lets you condense long stretches of time into short, compelling videos with high resolution and lifelike clarity.
8.2 fps Continuous Shooting
Just because you want to capture a memory forever doesn't mean the world pauses for your camera. Whether it's a funny instant with your pet or a vintage train rolling into the station, the PowerShot G9 X Mark II camera's fast capture (up to 8.2 fps) can help save the moment you want. Plus, improved object tracking performance automatically detects what you’re capturing to help ensure they stay clear and in focus in virtually every shot, no matter the subject.
Picture Style Function
The Picture Style function, just like on EOS digital cameras, lets you choose between eight presets that adjust color, contrast and other aspects of the image to help you fine-tune how your picture looks. There are eight styles to choose from, plus you can download additional styles and even create your own with the Picture Style Editor.
In-camera RAW Conversion
The PowerShot G9 X Mark II camera’s in-camera RAW conversion lets you adjust multiple aspects of an image after you capture it, without using a computer. You can change brightness levels manually or through the Auto Light Optimizer, which analyzes the photo and adjusts it accordingly. You can also fine-tune the white balance, change the Picture Style and more. When you’re done, switch between the original and adjusted image to check your work, then save the result as a JPEG for later use.

The premium compact cameras give the user the option to manually control settings (shutter speed, aperture, ISO), while also offering the traditional “Auto” point and shoot mode, as well as other creative settings typically found on a point and shoot. These cameras also feature a 1” CMOS sensor, which produces better images than a typical cell phone camera.
Updates to the Mark II version include the Digic VII image processor, which means faster processing and continuous shooting times for JPEG and RAW photos (a maximum continuous shooting speed of 8.2 fps in RAW shooting mode). The Mark II also features dual sensing image stabilization, a quicker autofocus feature and improved subject tracking, auto shooting mode, and a slight improvement in battery life.
The Mark II also is Bluetooth compatible, a new feature (the camera also has Wi-Fi and NFC capabilities). Transferring photos from the camera to your phone is easy with the Canon Camera Connect app.
I have used the camera for a few weeks and I like it. The camera is small (it can literally fit in my front pocket) and the large 3” touchscreen is relatively intuitive (the camera has a limited amount of buttons). The user can control mostly everything via the touchscreen, and I have found that visibility of the screen is still very good for daylight shooting.
The lens range itself is limited, but what you lose in zoom you make up for in quality photos and compactness. The focal length in the lens of the Canon G9X II is 28mm-84mm, with a 3X optical zoom and a 12x digital zoo, which will produce grainy photos. Maximum aperture is F/2 at 28mm and F4.9 at 84mm. I have attached photos that show what is captured at 28mm, 50mm, 84mm and at maximum zoom. The zoom on this camera will not give you close ups of the moon. The lens barrel also has a ring, which can be used to control a variety of settings. There is no viewfinder.
Overall, I am very pleased with this camera. The only negative at this point has been battery life, but the battery life I have experienced may have been comprised since I have been setting up the camera and using its various features. Still, it probably makes sense to buy and carry a spare battery if you are going to be out all day shooting. Highly recommended!
Is it worth upgrading from the original though? I guess it depends on what's important to you. If you feel that you would use the in camera raw processing and more in depth adjustments for picture styles then its worth considering. While it's JPEGS are slightly sharper due to the newer processor, overall image quality is about the same. The photos look great with excellent color reproduction and the auto white balance has improved a bit over its predecessor. Video quality is also very good.
The overall layout of the camera is essentially the same at its predecessor. You only get one control dial and have to rely on the touch screen for the rest of setting adjustments. But as with other cameras, the touch screen works great so this might not be as big of a deal as it seems. Ergonomics are pretty good for such a small camera. With a nice textured surface up front for a more secure grip.
Autofocus performance has improved over the original G9X, mainly in the form of being less sluggish and more accurate in low light conditions. Movie AF has improved a bit too with less back and forth motion while focusing over the original.
Battery life has also improved like it did on the G7X Mark II. Although if you're taking this out for a long day of shooting, you still might pack an extra one. Enthusiast compacts in general don't have the greatest battery life.
Overall, this is a likeable little camera that does photos and videos very well and is slim enough to fit in most pockets. Some may find the lens too restrictive as far as focal length is concerned but that's one of the tradeoffs you have to make when you stuff a larger sensor in a small camera body. If you have the original G9X, this is not the no-brainer upgrade. But if you're a new buyer to this series, it's worthwhile to spend the extra money to get the Mark II for the extra features and slight bump in overall performance it provides.
No camera is perfect. It's just the matter of where you are willing to make compromise. In term of light traveling camera, this is as good as you can get. The camera is truly pocketable, decent focal range, grate image quality. Wifi is a big bonus since I travel without a laptop and can transfer photos over to my iPhone to edit and post on social media during the trip. The photos include in my review are shot in jpg (with neutral setting) and lightly touch-up/re-frame with iPhone Photoshop app.
I have used Sony RX-100 (v1-v3), Canon S90-S120, and G9 X mark1 in my traveling and so far this G9 X Mk2 is my favorite.
I have included some pictures I have taken using this camera.
