Canon G9X Mark II Conclusion

The Canon Power
Shot G9X Mark II is Canon"s latest compact camera with a 1-inch sensor. There is a lot about the G9X II that is similar khổng lồ its predecessor, including a very compact form factor, but there are many new features such as a faster processor. We have had the G9X Mark II in the field và put it through its paces in our lab. Let"s take a final look at the Canon G9X II & see how it stacks up.

G9X II offers good image quality, especially with color accuracy & high ISOs

Featuring a 20-megapixel 1-inch type CMOS sensor, the G9X II uses the same image sensor as its predecessor, but there have been improvements made lớn image processing & overall image quality. For example, we found better màu sắc and detail from the G9X II than the original G9X. In fact, the G9X II produces essentially identical image unique as its more expensive and larger sibling, the G7X II.

When you increase the ISO, the improvements in the G9X Mark II over its predecessor are even more apparent. The G9X II delivers cleaner và clearer images at higher ISOs than the G9X. When considering print quality, the G9X II can deliver excellent 24 x 36 inch prints at ISO 125 (base ISO) through ISO 200. At ISO 1600, you can make an okay 13 x 19 inch print, although 11 x 14 works much better. A good 8 x 10 is even possible at ISO 3200 and usable 5 x 7 prints can be produced with ISO 6400 images. This is impressive performance for a compact camera with a 1-inch sensor. We believe that improvements in image chất lượng over the original G9X are due lớn the improved image processor, as the cameras vày utilize identical image sensors and the same built-in lens.

3x zoom lens is compact but a bit limited compared lớn the competition

The Canon G9X II has a 28-84mm-equivalent built-in lens which has a maximum aperture range of f/2.0-4.9. This is a fast maximum aperture, although the lens does become an f/2.2 lens 30mm và an f/2.8 lens at 33mm, so it is only fast at essentially its very widest focal length. Speaking of the wide focal length, the G9X II does not offer a very wide lens.

The 3x zoom lens proved khổng lồ offer decent far-field performance for its class. While its zoom is not quite as impressive as some of the competition, the G9X II retains a very compact size factor so there had lớn be compromise. Macro performance is about average, but distortion is particularly well-controlled in most cases. The case where distortion is bad is when considering RAW images captured at wide angle; uncorrected files have very high distortion. Most RAW converters will automatically correct for it, so it is not a big giảm giá khuyến mãi but is worth keeping in mind if you shoot a lot of RAW. This will also reduce the quality of the corners in wide angle shots as the corrections stretch the pixels. This applies to lớn JPEG images as well, which are corrected automatically, as the corners are noticeably soft in wide-angle shots.

Combined with the image sensor, the G9X II"s built-in lens offers pretty good performance, & the camera produces images with good fine detail. Save for corner performance at wide angle focal lengths, the G9X II offers solid imaging performance across the board.

The Canon G9X II offers improved performance thanks lớn its new image processor. The G9X II has a DIGIC 7 image processor and can shoot at over 8 frames per second. This is impressive speed for the compact camera and is about 1.5 fps faster than the original G9X when shooting JPEGs, và over 7 fps faster when shooting RAW format as the G9X II no longer slows down with RAW files lượt thích the G9X did. Buffer depth is pretty good as well, with the G9X II offering 31 JPEG frames và 20 RAW frames when continuously shooting, or 19 if you"re shooting RAW+JPEG. Startup time, autofocus speed, shutter lag & cycle times have also improved.

In the field, the G9X II proved to lớn be a pretty quick camera as well. However, an area where the G9X II comes up quite short is in terms of how fast the camera is lớn clear its buffer. While shooting speeds and the buffer depths themselves are pretty good, the camera can take nearly đôi mươi seconds khổng lồ clear its RAW buffer and over trăng tròn seconds lớn clear the RAW+JPEG buffer. It"s a rather small blemish on an otherwise good set of performance results.

A more important weak area for the G9X II is its battery life. The camera is rated for 235 shots, which is a 15-shot improvement over its predecessor, but remains only mediocre. There is an optional "Eco" mode, which improves the battery life to 315 shots by dimming the LCD and turning it off quicker when the camera is not being used. A spare battery is still highly recommended if you regularly go on extended outings.


Overall, the G9X II offers pretty good performance for its class. While it"s not perfect, it is improved over its predecessor & is competitive in the compact camera class.

G9X II autofocus is fast for most subjects, but struggles with C-AF

With 31 autofocus points & a contrast-detect autofocus system, the G9X Mark II does well with focus in most situations. The camera includes single-point autofocus, touch to track, fully automatic autofocus, face detect & more. The continuous autofocus performance proved to lớn work well with slower subjects, but couldn"t keep up with speedy ones. One of the highlights of the camera"s autofocus performance is its good touchscreen implementation, which allows you to lớn easily move your autofocus point around the frame. Overall, the G9X II offers quick, reliable autofocus in most scenarios although may not be well-suited for tracking fast-moving subjects.

Video: G9X II captures fine clip and offers some nice features

The Canon G9X II records 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) clip at up khổng lồ 60 frames per second, which is quite nice. It is worth noting that the camera can only record at 60 fps when using the dedicated video clip recording mode. If you start a recording using the dedicated "movie record" button in other shooting modes, the camera tops out at 30 fps. The video unique is quite good, although disappointingly the G9X II crops in when recording video, rendering a camera that already does not have a very wide lens even less wide for video. Generally, the clip features and performance on the G9X II are not excellent but they are certainly usable và pretty good for a compact camera.

If you have used a G9X, then the G9X II will prove very familiar to lớn use. The camera retains the same form factor as its predecessor, which is to say that it"s very compact. The G9X II weighs only 7.3 ounces (206 grams) and can easily fit in pants pocket or a jacket pocket. The small kích cỡ comes with a few compromises in terms of usability. As with the original, the G9X II has very few physical controls, forcing you to lớn use the touchscreen extensively. Those accustomed to lớn cameras with more buttons và dials might find this frustrating. The lack of a front grip can make it tricky khổng lồ get a good hold on the camera body, và the camera lacks a viewfinder. Without a viewfinder, you have to lớn exclusively use the 3-inch rear display for framing your images. The display works well, but does not tilt, which makes it difficult to use in bright lighting conditions. If you want a compact camera, the G9X II definitely checks that box, but it is worth considering the trade-offs.

Review Summary: Canon G9X II is a solid all-around compact camera

The Canon G9X II takes what made the original a good compact camera choice & adds a few upgrades along the way. The camera is faster & more refined, but it still has some of the same weaknesses. The built-in lens is not very wide -- although it is fast -- và it does not offer excellent performance. The camera lacks a viewfinder, & the display does not tilt. However, the G9X II captures nice images in a compact size factor & has a wallet-friendly price tag, thus earning it a spot as a Dave"s Pick.
