Rated 5 out of 5 by TerryM from The Little Camera that Could I came here looking for a tech question and stumbled across some unfair reviews from people who sound like they know little about photography, much less this great camera. I've had mine for three years now and it's been so good it's made it hard for me to find anything else that compares in its size and price range. That includes a couple other bodies from camera companies named after mountains. The G7X Mark II is TRULY pocketable, has nice fast lens, the swivel touchscreen is awesome and it takes good video, too. And don't forget those Canon colors. There is a newer model that adds 4K and some other features but this a great little camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pika Flow from I LOVE this camera Takes excellent video footage in loud, dim environments like concerts. Captures gorgeous long-exposure photos of fire spinners and LED flow props. With a steady had it can snap crisp shots of stars in the night sky without a tripod. Has an interface that is easy to use and navigate. The wireless connectivity with smartphones is convenient. Colors come out vivid. It focuses on subjects with ease. The touchscreen is very responsive. I've used this camera for 3 years. I am extremely happy I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by QuanN from Pricey for a partly working camera Compact and lightweight. WIFI is nearly impossible to connect. USB cord cannot transfer files.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Muni from Good camera, terrible app and tech I love this camera. But I HATE HATE HATE the wifi transfer utility. The old process/app were OK, but they nixed it and the new app is unusable. You have zero control over which photos get uploaded and what resolution is preserved (hint: it's not full resolution. The only solution I can think of is to go out and by a chip reader, defeating the purpose of a WiFi camera. I will not be buying a Canon product again. The best point and shoot in the world is useless with out a decent transfer app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stereoview from I wanted to like this camera. Now that I have run a few thousand exposures through this camera, I'm not that happy with it. I shoot a lot of close distances and the auto focus can't seem to get it right even with touch screen. It always tries to focus to further points. Very annoying. The dialed back 2 inch minimum focus is also a problem. I could get much closer with my G16. G16 also had a viewfinder and hot shoe. Those are gone. Sometimes I have been impressed with superior sharpness and overall image quality but it seems you need to make more exposures to get a good one. Lots of deleting and do overs. It does well middle distance and beyond which makes it marginally better than a phone. I appreciate having f-11. I bought this recently and it seems a lot of money to not be well satisfied. I ran my last two G series cameras long and hard. They still work. I knew I shouldn't start using these high mileage units again. I just got a SX 740. We'll see how it goes. It does focus to 1 cm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jroman from Auto Focus Gets Worse Overtime! This is an awesome camera bought it the same month it came out! The video quality is awesome, image stabilization is good, audio not bad but the autofocus is the problem it gets worse overtime like the Mark 1. The only way my camera wants to focus now is when I touch the screen about 3 times in a 1min video. It has trouble knowing what to focus on, has trouble identifying objects and even people and picks up to much background noise. For an expensive camera the focusing shouldn't degenerate overtime or at all. I hope they get it right for the Mark 3 because when you buy a camera you expect it to last you a couple yrs not 10 months. If they get it right it would be worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tlb from PowerShot G7 conversion ability from RAW to jpg I purchased this camera because I wanted to be able to have a camera with me for those sudden opportunities. My 7D is wonderful, but too bulky to carry with me at all times. When purchasing I was specific that a new camera would shoot in RAW. Which this one does. But now I find that neither my version of Photoshop (12 nor my other software, BreezeBrowserPro, are able to convert G7's RAW into jpgs. The email I received from BBPro after inquiring was "Canon only provide raw conversion libraries for their DSLR cameras". Imagine my surprise and disappointment. I have yet to contact Cannon, but until this is resolved I will only be shooting only jpg's. I only gave a 3 star rating because of the RAW issue. As a jpg camera I would up the rating, and when recommending it to a friend I would mention the RAW issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrOjoVerdes from Great multi tasking camera So I bought this nifty little number for my holiday, was going to Yosemite national park, some beaches, so I wanted something small that could do lots of different shots in different environments. This camera does them all with ease, the more proficient camera user could mess around with the settings and such like and you would love it, for the novice, you can just leave it in auto and let the camera do it all for you.\ Wifi connecting is a great plus, the app works perfectly on my phone and this just means you can upload to various sites etc that we all love to use these days. The flip up screen makes selfies (we all do them) so easy and also for the modern day Vloggers this just makes life to easy too. Great battery life, lightweight, not too bulky, for the money you can do a lot worse trust me. If you have the means to do so then I would consider buying this camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tamara from very sharp beautiful pictures I have had this camera for a few months and needed time to get used to it. I stepped up from a power shot sx230 hs which had a nice zoom and was easy to just put in my pocket or purse. This camera is heavier, chunkier and much more sophisticated. I'm still figuring it out, but it is amazing with the digic 7 sensor and all the bells and whistles. The zoom is good for closer things but you won't be able to do wildlife long shots...however it has cropping that does work to bring the subject closer. All in all, it is a very nice camera. If you have large hands the buttons are easily pushed when you don't want them to be as it is very compact. I like the touch screen that is like your smart phone. Using it is the best teacher as I found the instruction book that came with it hard to understand. I go back to it after I have used the camera. Still learning!!! Also the tilt screen is wonderful. After getting used to having that capability I would miss it if it weren't there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rick from static hiss in the audio I love the pictures, but there is a lot of audible static hiss in the videos. I’ve done everything I could to fix this problem: wind filter on and off, attenuator on and off, auto-focus on and off, but the static hiss noise remains. I'm not an audio expert, but it sounds like maybe the camera’s microphone gain is turned all the way up. My six year old Canon G12 which cost less than the G7X Mark II has much better audio and much cleaner audio. I took some videos far from anywhere down by the lake shore. I thought it would be nice to hear the sounds of the lapping water and the occasional distant call of a bird of prey. But in the videos I can barely hear anything over the static rumble and hiss. This is an expensive camera, and a good stereo microphone is a must. It’s a good image camera, but it does not rise to its potential because of the poor audio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fotodok from BEST OF THE 1 INCH Serious amateur here, like the 1-inch group because for me the most important camera feature is pocketability. Some of the reviews are comparing these cameras to all cameras, which is like comparing apples and oranges. But, of the 3 makers of 1-inch sensors, this is clearly the new king. Sony was clearly the leader with the Rx100. But with the 6, they opted for zoom lens over fast lens. Now, with the 1-inch sensor and the F 1.8 -2.8 4 x zoom, G7x mark 2 is the new leader. Picture quality is fantastic. The fast lens actually lets this rival APS-C quality (I have a few of those too, and truly do not see a difference - minus special lenses of course ). The autofocus is very fast and accurate. (unlike the new Ricoh GR3 which I found unusable). Video is nice, at 1080 HD, crisp picture, sound, and quick lighting and focus adjustment, although I do not use video that often, so can not really give a fair assessment of that aspect of it. bottom line if you want a serious camera, that can fit in your pocket, this is the best of the bunch right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RDFStudios from Awesome Travel Camera - 10 Day Italy Trip Rather than carrying my 7D II with 24-70L and 70-200L lenses on our family trip to Italy this month, I researched and bought the G7 X II earlier this month. What a great decision. Easily fit in my jeans pocket, great low light pics (in St. Peter's Basilica and other historic buildings), crisp and clean JPEGs with little need for editing (I wirelessly uploaded to my IPad Pro each evening, for minimal editing before posting, and fabulous results. Near professional or pro results, as evidenced by the feedback received. It made the 10 day trip around Italy so much more enjoyable not having to carry a heavy bag, and change lenses. The only knock is the battery life, as I had to charge late afternoon or I'd run out of power in the evening. I have since bought a 2nd battery for future use. Highly recommended.

Couple of ways to make this even better: 1 the battery and memory card access is on the side instead of bottom. this is helpful when the camera is mounted on a tripod, and I need to change battery or memory card during a long shoot. 2) better optical zoom 3) audio recording is still below average. audio recording does not compare to my iPhones (even older versions).

Also got a nice soft EYESKEY neck strap for binoculars which I like. Also got a 32GB fast memory card for use with video. BUT - cannot buy any instruction book anywhere. Camera comes with a small "Getting Started" manual which has a lot of information about all functions but I like a big book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Magnum from Great camera. Suto-Focue noise on video is unsati I bought this as it has been highly reviewed and recommended by vloggers and others and the perfect point-and-shoot camera. I have always been a Canon loyalist, owning my first in 1975! The reviews were spot on with one MAJOR exception. There is a annoying, distracting and obnoxious noise in the videos. It occurs when the auto-focus is running. It makes a clicking sound, that is there continuously every time the focus changes. The only workaround is to use manual focus. I will be returning it for a replacement Unfortunately I purchased this camera for an upcoming trip. Once I noticed the grinding noise on video, I tried to get Canon to replace it. They were willing but said I must send in mine first. Well there is no way we can get mine mailed in and the replacement received by me in time for the trip. Why wouldn't;t they send me the replacement and I would send mine simultaneously? Now I will have to use it on my trip, workaround the auto focus (not use it and then send it in when I get back. Hope my videos are at least usable. The noise is very distracting and annoying during playback.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SJNBham from Missing panorama feature and electronic viewfinder I chose this camera over its competitors because of the touchscreen feature. However, I was disappointed to find out the photo stitch assist is missing in this Mark II model. I believe it is available in the previous model. Also the lack of an electronic viewfinder was a big trade-off. I eventually ended up going with this because of the lack of touchscreen in the competition. Would be wonderful if Canon released a firmware update to add a panorama option in the Scene mode.

Rated 5 out of 5 by photodok from best of the 1 inch cameras I have been a fan of the 1 inch cameras. I am a serious amateur, but need a camera for the pocket, so most DSLR or even mirorless are out for me. I have owned the SONY rx 100 series. That is an incredible travel camera, even better then this canon in some ways. But to me, I do not need the larger zoom on the SOny. The canon combination of 1 inch sensor with the F 1.8 lens and image stabilization, can rival APS-C sensors in lower light and certainly in daylight. image quality is amazing, excellent feel and control, fantastic touch screen function. the camera also feels more substantial the Lumix or even the SOny. If you strictly want a travel camera with a bigger zoom, go with the SONY, but if you want an overall day to day camera as a sort of SLR substitute that fits in the pocket. this is the winner. overall, I think Canon really hit a home run with this camera, if used for the right purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cat Mama from Great camera; lousy camera strap I just purchased this camera, and so far, I'm delighted with it. What I am not delighted with is the strap that came with the camera. For the price, it should have come with a better neck strap. However, this doesn't take away from the camera itself at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gug1953 from Good Camera! I bought this because of all the stellar reviews that are online about this camera. It meets all my expectations in daily shooting. In some of the other reviews here I see the complaints about the panoramic function missing. This is no deal breaker by any stretch and performed subpar to begin with. Upload just about any image panorama software for free and it will do a better job. There is no doubt it is a good camera but what is not disclosed in any of the reviews I read are in order of importance to me: * The macro mode on this camera at best is mediocre, no make that simply bad. It gets no closer than 2" and the peripheral part of the picture is completely out of focus. My G12, G16, 280, 700 all take excellent macro and this simply doesn't. So if this is a function you are looking for in your camera this is not a good choice. * The video on this camera is no better than any of the above mentioned cameras. * Why is Canon including chargers with an extension cord that I received when they also manufacture the conventional charger with the attached flip out plug. *

Rated 5 out of 5 by dlov47 from Great with One Reservation Took on our last cruise. Wonderful images and great features. Totally automatic to totally manual. Love the portrait feature that automatically blurs the background. Only issue is the lack of viewfinder. The LCD screen is very hard to see in bright sunlight. Ended up with a lot of "tilted" images that had to be corrected in iPhoto app. Wish an optional viewfinder was available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LJDecker from Best compact camera! I’m a live long canon SLR and DSLR user. This year I decided to try small because I like to walk outdoors. This camera is awesome does everything my other cameras can do, except changeable lenses. The lens it does have does work very well and has a great zoom. I’m hoping future models will have changeable lenses. For the money I highly recommend this camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ginormous K from Takes nice bright pictures even underwater! I bought this camera in April 2018 along with the Canon underwater case designed to fit. I've taken loads of great pictures, including many great underwater pictures while on vacation. I get lots of compliments on my pictures. :-

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kyanz from Fantastic Camera! Great Vlogging Camera! I am a YouTube vlogger, and this is an amazing Point and Shoot Camera! I use many cameras: Canon VIXIA HF G40, Nikon D5200 (with a different lens and external mic), Nikon Coolpix S7000, Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS7 (Black), and more! But honestly, this is my favorite! For most of my filming I use the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II and the Canon VIXIA HF G40 with the Shure VP83 Condenser Microphone. I am very impressed with the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II! If you are looking to buy a great, small, Point and Shoot that takes amazing raw photos and 1080p60 video.... Buy the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II! Go Canon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cyberpip from A very good camera Have only had this camera a short time now, but have used it enough to know I like it. EXCEPT, for a couple of issues. First, the lack of threads for a lens filter. I have gone to a competitor to get an addon to make up for this lack. Yes, the camera is able to spoof many filters plus printing can add filter results. But I like the control the filters give me. Plus having an external lens cap helps with the dust issue mentioned by others. The other issue is not have a way to use an exteral flash, other than one that is not wired. That is okay but I do like having an oncamera flash rather than the built in Plus not being able to have a wired control for activating photos so I dont have to worry about camera shake. Yes, I know, I can build in a delay when I take photos but not the best way in my opinion. I have used canon cameras for around 50 years. I love them. I have two full frame that I use as well as a couple I have converted to Infrared. Got a heck of alot of lenses and filters for all. But I am getting old and I wanted a lighter smaller camera to use other than the big ones. I used to have the first G1 that canon came out with. I used it alot. But then it had problems and needed fixing and canon had discontiued repairs on that old G1 just a few months before it quit on me. Just my luck. I give this a 4 star because it is a good camera despited the limitations and I will use it. Maybe I will get me another G1 when they have one that I like the looks of. We will see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarineWon from MarineWon I'm a retired commercial photographer and video producer of 40 years. I wanted a compact camera for photo and video that would serve me well. Over the last 2+ years this small but mighty camera has given me everything I've asked it to do. Full auto, manual operations of all types and never a failure. I'm impressed. Delighted to have this camera with me wherever I go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nari from Waste of money The app to transfer photos doesn’t work anymore. The wifi won’t connect to anything. I asked 2 different representatives about what cord I could use to transfer photos from this camera to my M1 Mac. They both told me the wrong cord, bought that and it didn’t even fit. It doesn’t connect to a Mac wirelessly and the reps don’t even know the product well enough to help you with it. It’s ridiculous. Don’t buy this at all. SMH

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andy in GA from Perfect Little Camera This camera takes stunning pictures and movies. I wanted a camera that was small enough to fit in my pocket, and that can deliver high quality images. I mostly use the camera in auto mode and have been extremely happy with the results. The battery lasts a long time as long as you don't use the Wi-Fi feature too much. All in all a great camera!

Rated 5 out of 5 by joboo from Great Picture but flimsy I purchased this for something light to throw in my pocket. My 6D is too bulky for day to day. This has a great quality photo however it is just not built up enough to withstand getting tossed in your pocket. I have already sent it back to have the zoom finger trigger fixed. It just seems too "dainty" for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AriB94 from Great all around point and shoot This is a perfect option for an all around, compact, point and shoot. I’ve had several compact cameras over the years and this is the best, as far as image quality goes. I keep this on me for quick use and holds up well against more expensive cameras.
