Product Reviews
Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II - digital camera is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from i returned it I bought it, but the zoom is not great. Going to end up buying cheaper camera with more zoom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes Beautiful Photos with a Little Patience I bought the G1XII nearly 2 years ago and it continues to impress with the photos it delivers. Yes, it is only 12.8 megapixels. Yes, it is slow to focus at times. Yes, the controls are not handy at times. But the more you use and get to know this camera and what makes it unique and where its strengths are you play to them and it yields beautiful photography. I carry mine in a small case on my belt and it has become quite the travel partner and enables me to capture beauty and interest wherever I go. I am looking forward to the evolution of this "all-in-one" camera! Canon, any idea on G1XIII?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything a DSLR has in a smaller package I have used this camera for two years, after using a G15 for two years. The GX1 M 2 is a superb camera. I bought the EVF and I find that I can compose better photos with it since it allows me to focus on what I am shooting. If you want to get all of the capability out of this camera, READ the manual carefully, with your camera in hand and try out everything it can do. Learn the menus and the controls. I travel with it everywhere. I liked the G15 for its size and I still carry it, but the G1X M2 can do so much more. I bought the European Grip and find it easier to hold the camera with it rather than the smaller American grip. Picture quality is stunning, even in low light. Background defocus mode makes great portraits. Only complaint is the autofocus is sometimes slow and gets confused once in awhile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel camera - Rhine and Danube Rivers and I normally shot with a Nikon D800 and two D200s. I decided to go much lighter on this Viking River Cruise. The cruise was great and the pictures fro the trip kicked butt. I shot with several people packing the big iron and at least matched them in each outing. The camera is fully featured so I wanted for little. One thing that I found inadequate was the manual focus in which I could get it close then the camera would "fix" it for me. I really like to use manual focus in many situations and missed that capability. I also like to bracket exposure and the "C1 and C2" functions could be set up for that purpose with good result. It would be nice to be able to have more exposures or greater increment between exposures though.I REALLY like the sensor size. I previously used a G15 for this sort of thing. Big is good! Not necessarily for the pixel count, but for the value of the sensor real estate.One thing that I worried about was the way that the lens extends. I found it necessary to shoot in the rain a lot because you only got a short window of opportunity for each situation. The wet lens would get withdrawn into the body of the camera so I make a real effort to dry it before removing power. Never had a problem.I am going on another European Cruise and I will be carrying my G1X again (unless Canon comes out with something better)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ...Know yourself (camera) and you can fight... The strength of the G1X II is it's wide, long, fast and macro-capable lens married with a large 1.5" sensor. In low light situations (or indoor with no flash thus preserving the natural light and shadows giving your images a natural look) it completely dominates without a hitch. This bad boy can (almost) keep up with my 5D III between it's 1.5" sensor married with the 2-3.9 lens, it's not my Full frame obviously, but, highly capable in low light (12,800 ISO looks good), portraits, and also macro photography. Point and shoots utterly fail in all three, but not the G1X II.The faults in the G1X II are it's chromatic aberration when shooting wide angle wide open (24mm F2, it's really a problem, I've never had a notable CA issue until the G1X II). Stopping down to F4 eliminates this when shooting wide, but leaving Av on F4 or using M frequently is less fun than P/Auto so it takes some thinking to get the shot you want vs if you're used to P/Auto... Especially, since P/Auto gravitate towards wide open which will create unwanted softness in well lit scenarios thus adding insult to injury. The other issue of the G1X II is it's metering is not as rock solid as my old 5D III. In bright backlit scenes, highlight blowouts are common, with the low DR adding insult that that injury as you can't recover them in post so you have to be mindful of your exposure comp, which thankfully with all the dials you can assign it to one full time, plus the built-in ND filter you can also compensate for when you expose your shot.If you know your G1X II and it's limitations and how to use it, it creates stills that other Point and Shots can't touch as it has a highly capable lens and sensor in a small package. Ultimately though, this leads to more thinking and less feeling your shot making it less "fun". However, being able to shot the whole gamut of 24-120, at F2-3.9, with macro leads to extraordinary potential in portraits (low F-stop), food photography (macro), sports (long reach plus fast lens), and indoor or night events (great low light).Overall the G1X II is an excellent second camera for a pro-shooting DSLR setup where you have power for personal use, and don't mind something more than pocketable, and if live on modes other than P and Auto you'll enjoy. If you are a P/Auto shooter, The G5X and G7X peers are a better fit, unless, you want to dable further into the pro world without buying a DSLR setup which to buy an equivalent lens, and camera, you can't get for the price of the G1X II...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Good Travel/Back Up Camera Canon G1X MkII..I've had this several months now, and shot about 1,000 frames over 5 states and 4 countries. My review is based on using it as a high-end "carry camera", i.e., for business/pleasure travel and local events, when you want decent IQ but can't take a big DSLR...So, the Good, the Not So Good, and the Bad…..First, THE GOOD:IMAGE QUALITY is very good and with a 1" sensor, is much better than other cameras with smaller sensors. Images are crisp and sharp (at least at less than full-aperture.) This is what you are paying for in a camera like this...STURDY, WELL-BUILT: The camera is well made, sturdy, and feels good in the hands. I use a grip strap (the kind that attaches to the side and underside) for extra security and balance. It has a hotshot, which should be standard for this kind of higher-end camera. More on the integrated pop-up flash later...- BATTERY LIFE: if you keep it on econ mode, and have a short shut-off setting, the battery life is quite acceptable. This was nothing that I found bothersome. Certainly not as good as the old G12, but just fine...- TOUCH SCREEN CONTROL: Very nice! You get used to this very quickly and find yourself trying to do it on your other cameras. Especially useful for quickly selecting the focus point in a shot. Great feature and makes focusing quick and easy...- TILT SCREEN: This is not the 360˚ rotating flip out screen of the G12 and other models. However, I did not get into a situation where I wished I had or thought I needed the older style screen. Yes, it would be nice, but this is quite workable. Only a few times when holding the camera above my head, I could have used a little more "angle" than the 45˚ max provided. But it was quite workable. Also, using the flip out screen horizontally to mimic the old rage finder cameras brings the G1 X MKII to waist level, and I found myself shooting like a street photographer with a twin-lens Rolliflex. It gives your shots a different dimension, and certainly is less intimidating that wielding a big gun at eye-level. The 180˚ vertical flip is good for composing self-timer shots. A little awkward, but very workable...- HI-RES VIDEO AT THE TOUCH OF A BUTTON: very quick and convenient to start shooting video with a dedicated video button...Next, the NOT SO GOOD BUT LIVEABLE:- POP-UP FLASH is convenient, but weak, and certainly does nothing to prevent red-eye. In fact, I found absolutely no difference in red-eye reduction with any of my family and friends who normally have red eyes from flashes in photographs. So, the off-to-the-side positioning to reduce red-eye is totally ineffective. Moreover, now you have an uneven lighting problem. This is noticeable in close ups where the right end of the frame (flash is left) is darker. In wider angle distance shots, depending on ambient light, it can be just as noticeable...- DELAYED CONTROL RESPONSE: this has been reported before, and I'll just confirm it. This camera has got some confusing "push-here-turn-there" controls that are further confounding when they are not responsive and you then move on to push some other combination thinking you've got it wrong. It's overly complicated and buttons are easy to confuse. When you're shooting, you want to make adjustments fast. This camera does not lend itself to that...- SHORT CUT BUTTON IS NO SHORT CUT: inexplicably, there are limited menu items to assign to the short-cut button, and some of those options you wonder why you'd ever want to assign it to a frequently-used short cut button…?!..- DITTO for the "MY MENU" options. A bewildering selection of weird options to choose for a custom (i.e., frequently used) menu...- LENS DISTORTION AT THE EDGES AT WIDE ANGLE AND OPEN APERTURE is noticeable. You need to shoot at least f4 or better, 5.6 if shooting wide-angle. This is noticeable in group shots. The people at the end will appear fatter or wider...- LIMITED LONG EXPOSURE SHUTTER SPEED - This camera that limits exposure to 1" except in Manual mode. One second isn't very long, especially for tripod shots...Finally, the BAD:NO VIEWFINDER: Sorry, but this is not a minor issue. The LCD screen is impossible to see in the sunlight or bright outdoors. No amount of LCD brightness can compensate. Composing pictures through this screen is a guess. This was very frustrating...- NO GPS. The "workaround" that's advised requires the integration of your smartphone and a wifi-setting, then uploading the data into your camera pictures, that is after you've set up the wi-fi network and paired the devices….Can't say I would ever bother with this - or have time to bother with it!..This definitely is a travel camera/back up camera for those who know how to use a camera and are familiar with Canon's system. (Although lack of a GPS is a negative for travel photography to some degree.) The sensor is a big one (1") and has a very good IQ as a result. This is a good compromise between not wanting or being able to lug a big DSLR around and yet not having good photo opps wasted with a smart phone or tiny-sensor point-and-shoot camera. It has a hot shoe so you can use an off-camera flash, which is a big plus. This then is a good choice among several other choices out there. But this is not a beginner's camera either in price or in the ability to shoot around its shortcomings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect camera for me! I love this camera! It is a cinch to upload images to your other devices. I like that the lens is not removable because it is much easier to carry while traveling. Light enough for travel and photo quality remains exceptional. I am very pleased with my purchase of the MARK II camera!
Date published: 2015-06-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Point and Shoot Images G1X Mark II produces very sharp images, best I have seen from a point and shoot. A little slow to focus but outstanding especially in low light situations without a flash. Built like a tank, I would recommend the optional grip. Love it!
