Technical Details


Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Silver Award
July 2016
The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II is a well-designed enthusiast compact that's a pleasure to use. It offers a versatile focal range, very good image quality, a large buffer for continuous shooting and 1080/60p video capture. Sharpening and noise reduction in JPEGs are heavy-handed, and battery life still needs work, but aside from those issues Canon has done an impressive job with the second iteration of the G7 X.

Personal takes

Carey Rose Carey Rose DPReview
The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II is well-built and engaging to use. The tilting touchscreen is responsive and handy for working at low or high angles, and though you will want to keep a spare battery at hand, the image quality and color rendition from the large 1"-type sensor is excellent.
Jeff Keller Jeff Keller DPReview
The PowerShot G7 X II has excellent ergonomics and is generally a pleasure to use. I'm not thrilled with its JPEG quality, so-so lens or battery life, but it's still a camera I'd want in my pocket for a day trip or a night out.

Reasons to buy

  • Fast, versatile lens: With a useful 24-100mm equivalent focal range and F1.8-2.8 maximum aperture, the G7 X's lens is well-suited for low light photography. When combined with the camera's 1"-type sensor, you also get more control over depth-of-field than typical compact cameras.
  • Solid image quality: The G7 X Mark II's photos have vibrant color and plenty of detail, though you'll need to shoot Raw to get the best results.
  • Fast burst shooting: The G7 X II can fire off Raws or JPEGs at over 8 fps with locked focus and exposure and 5.4 fps with continuous AF. A deep buffer allows users to take over 20 images per burst.
  • Articulating LCD: The camera's 3", 920k-pixel LCD can flip upward 180 degrees for selfies, tilt downward for overhead shooting, or anywhere in-between.

Things to consider

  • Strong noise reduction and sharpening removes detail in JPEGs: The JPEG engine in the G7 X Mark II applies heavy noise reduction and sharpening, reducing fine detail in images.
  • Subpar battery life: While battery life numbers have improved since the original G7 X, most of its peers can take a lot more shots per charge.
  • Unresponsive after bursts: After shooting a burst of images users may have to wait 15 seconds before they can enter playback mode or adjust camera settings.
  • No electronic viewfinder: There's no electronic viewfinder on the PowerShot G7 X II, unlike on some of its peers, so shooting in bright light may be challenging.

1.0-inch, 20.1 Megapixel* CMOS sensor with Canon’s new DIGIC 7 Image Processor helps deliver outstanding image quality even in low light.

1.0-inch, 20.1 Megapixel* CMOS Sensor

The PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera features a large 1.0-inch, 20.1 Megapixel* CMOS sensor that helps capture high-quality images and videos. Its wide dynamic range helps ensure both bright and dark parts of an image are fully captured, like the shadowy side of a building on a bright sunny day, or streetlights on a dark night. 20.1 Megapixels* means photos with enough detail to print, or enjoy on high-resolution monitors and mobile devices. It also gives additional flexibility during editing, giving you the option of cropping in on your subject for improved composition while still having a detailed, high-resolution image. Smooth gradations from light to dark keeps unrealistic banding in solid colors to a minimum. Thanks to an available ISO of up to 12800 (expandable to 25600) and the power of the new DIGIC 7 Image Processor, extremely low-light photos and videos are possible, with minimal image noise. Using a high ISO also allows for a faster shutter speed, which lowers the possibility of blur caused by excessive hand-held camera shake. For added flexibility, both JPEG and RAW images can be captured and saved.

DIGIC 7 Image Processor

The new DIGIC 7 Image Processor’s enhanced tracking and detection capabilities help keep subjects in focus, while ensuring each image has a high level of sharpness and minimum picture noise. Whether you’re capturing a fast-moving athlete or a feisty puppy, the DIGIC 7 Image Processor in the PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera can stay locked on throughout the action. Improved face tracking helps keep your friend or family member the subject of the photo. Even in extreme cases, like in low saturation or low-light dusk, dawn or darkened interior moments, the DIGIC 7 Image Processor helps keep what you’re photographing in focus. It also features the new Dual Sensing IS, which uses data from the image itself to help minimize the blur caused by camera shake and body movement. This results in clear, precise pictures even at slow shutter speeds. All this is in addition to upgraded detail and noise reduction abilities, especially in low light with high ISO settings. Powerful all around, the DIGIC 7 Image Processor helps ensure your photos and videos look sharp and lifelike with minimal unwanted noise or grain.

PowerShot G7 X Mark II
Canon HS System

The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you take bright, clear photos as they happen. Beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and truly impressive detail in both highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies in the PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera: the large format 1.0-inch High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor, which captures more light; and the DIGIC 7 Image Processor, which actively reduces noise at high ISO speeds up to 12800 and processes images at high speed, even at full resolution. Experience the freedom of using higher shutter speeds in far more situations, allowing you to capture images with outstanding clarity and detail.

* Image processing may cause a decrease in the number of pixels.

Features a bright f/1.8 (W) – f/2.8 (T), 4.2x (24–100mm), 9-blade iris diaphragm and IS-equipped lens.

PowerShot G7 X Mark II
4.2x, f/1.8 (W) – f/2.8 (T) Optical Zoom Lens (24–100mm)

The remarkable lens on the PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera takes full advantage of the camera's large sensor, giving your photography a wide range of expression. With a bright aperture value of f/1.8 at the wide angle and f/2.8 when fully zoomed to a factor of 4.2x (24mm–100mm), this lens not only puts more in your frame, but is equipped to capture an incredible variety of situations with artistry and precision. Equipped with a 9-blade iris diaphragm, the lens lets you achieve a beautiful background defocus with shapes that are nearly round. Capture macro shots from as close as 2.0 in. (telephoto at 1.3 ft.). From a design perspective, each of the 11 glass lenses on the PowerShot G7 X Mark II has a multi-layer coating on it, which is similar to the Super Spectra Coating technology developed by Canon for EF lenses. These coatings have features like a high transmission factor, ultraviolet protection, resistant surface hardness, and stable characteristics. The coating also maximizes suppression of unwanted reflected light from ghosting or flaring to deliver clear images with high image quality.

Intelligent IS

Equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS, the PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera helps you capture clear, steady images – even in low light without using a tripod. The system automatically analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation – allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. For stills, the system selects from Normal IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Active Tripod IS modes. Icons clearly mark the image stabilization mode, whether you're shooting still images or video.

Still Image Shooting
Normal IS Corrects for a wide range of camera movement when shooting stills.
Panning IS Panning motion is detected so that IS does not interfere with desired camera movement.
Macro (Hybrid) IS Corrects for shift-type camera shake, which typically occurs in macro (close-up) shooting.
Tripod When tripod use is detected, the Image Stabilizer is stopped because it is not needed.
Video Recording
Dynamic IS Effective for video shooting at wide-angle focal lengths, eliminating the unwanted shaking that typically occurs while walking.
Powered IS Compensates for hand movement when shooting video at the telephoto end of the zoom range, where camera shake is magnified.
Macro (Hybrid) IS Corrects for motion blur that is likely to occur when shooting video while walking. Also compensates for the shift-type camera shake common in macro shooting.
Active Tripod IS When shooting video while using a tripod, the Image Stabilizer is active to compensate for slight camera shake.

Capture impressively high-resolution images with high-speed continuous shooting up to 8 fps in RAW mode*, JPEG mode and RAW+JPEG mode*.

When the action happens fast, the PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera can move fast with it. With the ability to shoot continuously at up to 8 fps, it can help you capture incredible images with nearly no time wasted. Whether you’re trying to catch the moment a player hits a ball, a bird taking flight or the start of any special moment, you can be sure you can capture the photo you want. Offering the flexibility to suit your specific needs, the PowerShot G7 X Mark II can shoot continuously in RAW mode*, JPEG mode and RAW+JPEG mode*. When used with the camera’s built-in RAW conversion, it provides extensive adjustment options for the images you capture.

* UHS-I compatible 16GB card based on Canon’s testing standards. The number of shots can vary according to the subject and brand of card, etc.

Multi-angle capacitive 3.0" touch panel LCD with a screen resolution of 1.04 million dots and tilt option of 180° up and 45° down.

The PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera has a large, high-resolution, 3.0" LCD monitor that tilts up 180° and down 45°, ideal for composing not only self portraits, but also for taking pictures at high and low angles with ease. The multi-angle LCD encourages creative framing because it's easy to achieve a flexible array of camera angles. Capacitive touch-panel operation feels familiar: simply touch to access quick control settings, focus and shutter release right on screen. A resolution of 1.04 million dots makes the virtually glare-free display ultra crisp and clear, so it's easy to compose your shots, choose camera settings and review and share your images.

Capture stunning 1080p Full HD video in MP4 format with stereo sound.

Whether you're creating artistic film clips or capturing special occasions, the advanced video capabilities of the PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera can catch them in the quality they deserve. Incredibly realistic 1080p Full HD video is recorded at 60 fps with stereo sound in convenient MP4 format. Video is smooth and richly detailed even when played back on a large-screen HDTV via the camera's HDMI output. The MP4 format's small file size lets you fit more on a single memory card, and makes downloading and sharing quicker and easier. Manual movie mode is also available: adjust Av, Tv, and ISO speed and even select focus points by using the touch panel LCD screen. You can do this either before or during video capture to express your vision your way in a wider variety of situations – all from a compact camera that is easily portable.

Built-in Wi-Fi** and NFC capability allows for easy sharing and transferring of images and videos.

Built-in Wi-Fi** Technology Makes Sharing Quick and Easy

The camera can also connect directly to both compatible iOS and Android devices**, and upload images via the free Canon Camera Connect app** without a computer. You can control the destination of your uploads to share with everyone or to select groups, and even add comments.

Wi-Fi capability makes posting in real time possible, so you can keep everyone up to date with photos and video even as events unfold. Wi-Fi technology also allows you to transfer images to other Wi-Fi equipped PowerShot cameras or print your photos directly to a PictBridge (Wireless LAN) certified printer. Thanks to the newly added Wi-Fi Button, you can now connect in both Shooting mode and Playback mode for quick and easy operation. You can even turn on the camera and connect at the same time with just one press of the button, helping you get right to sharing and managing your files when you like.

Built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) Technology

PowerShot digital cameras with built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) technology provide fast connectivity with a single tap. Simply touch the NFC icon on your camera to your compatible Android device, and the Camera Connect app will launch automatically for quick, easy sharing of your images. Built-in NFC technology also makes it simpler to install the app. If the app hasn't been installed yet, once you touch the devices together for the first time, the download screen will display automatically. Simply touch the camera against an NFC-equipped device with the Canon Camera Connect app** installed, and a Wi-Fi connection is established – no camera operations required. Even if your camera is off, NFC turns the camera on and establishes the connection (confirming the camera's nickname and privacy settings before the first connection is required).

Remote Shooting with the Camera Connect App**

Remote shooting functions of the PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera through your compatible smartphone or tablet have been vastly improved with the Canon Camera Connect app. Now a variety of the camera's expressive capabilities are available to you: use different shooting modes (P, Av, Tv, M, Custom); enjoy multi-aspect shooting and display; choose AF frame modes (single-point/face detection); shoot in continuous shooting mode; and utilize the AF button. In addition, the Camera Connect app is now universal to PowerShot and EOS cameras with built-in Wi-Fi, so if you switch between cameras, operation is easy and familiar.

Picture Style function allows superb command of in-camera color, contrast and sharpness.

The Picture Style function, just like on EOS series 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. For example, if you’re taking a photo of a friend, you can use Portrait mode, which keeps the subject in focus while artistically blurring the background for a soft feel. If you’re looking to capture some stunning mountain peaks, you can use Landscape mode, which helps ensure the image is in focus and the colors are vibrant. 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 makes it possible to preview modified conditions of images on the camera, without the use of a computer.

The PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera’s powerful in-camera RAW conversion lets you adjust multiple aspects of an image after you capture it, without using a computer. If an image is a little darker than you’d hoped, you can Increase the brightness, or let the Auto Light Optimizer analyze the photo and change the levels accordingly. You can also fine-tune the white balance for a cool or warm look, change the Picture Style and more. When you’re satisfied with the results, switch between the original and adjusted image to check your work, then save the result as a JPEG for later use.

Control ring features a convenient selection lever enabling you to quickly switch between step ring and continuous ring movement.

The versatile control ring is a quick and convenient way to manually adjust photos and navigate camera menus. A selection lever lets you switch between step ring and continuous ring movement. Step ring movement makes changing settings, like switching between Picture Styles, tweaking aperture or modifying shutter speeds, fast and easy. Continuous ring movement lets you smoothly change focus with minimal sound, even while recording movies, so you’re able to decide what part of the image is sharp while on the go.

Time-Lapse Movie helps capture images at set intervals and combines them to create a short movie clip of the footage.

Time-Lapse Movie mode captures an image every few seconds, then combines these multiple images into a single movie. The sun dropping over the horizon, boats navigating a harbor, cars twisting through streets during rush hour can all be compressed in time, while maintaining gorgeous image quality. Movement appears fast, like reality has been accelerated. Intervals of 1- to 30-seconds between photos are available.

Panning allows the camera to lock onto the main subject using IS and automatically adjust the shutter speed for beautiful background blur.

By using a slow shutter speed and Canon’s advanced image stabilization, the PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera’s Panning mode can help you capture fast-moving subjects in an artistic and striking fashion. Athletes, cars, trains and more can be kept in focus while the background is smoothly blurred, creating an intense appearance of motion.
