The lack of a built-in viewfinder is always a deal-breaker for us and reviewing the PowerShot G1X Mark II reinforced our belief that any kind of viewfinder, no matter how basic, is better than none at all. An optional EVF is a poor solution, requiring...

Canon's PowerShot G1X Mark II is a substantial compact camera that can't easily fit in your pocket. It's a good shooter, though, and it gives you the choice to either take advantage of its extensive scene modes, or to wrestle with the exposure settings...

DateMay 14, 2014 (29) Read later Canon Powershot G1X MkII. This 13-megapixel camera stretches the definition of "compact". It is big and heavy, but then, it is a camera with heavyweight specifications. The sensor is much larger (1.5-inch, 38mm)...

The G1X is a unique camera. It has fewer pixels on a larger sensor than any other compact, a combination that serious photographers have longed for. Canon has taken a bold step away from the pixel race and selling-by-numbers - good! The relatively short...

Canon PowerShot G1X Mark II has improved a lot from the older G1X, both in terms of speed as well as usability. Image quality and ISO performance are quite good, but looking at the competition it should have been even better. Addition of Wi-fi and NFC is...

Le PowerShot G1X Mark II fait de bonnes images notamment en plein jour : à 800 euros et avec une si grosse optique, encore heureux. Mais il est un peu lourd, il est plutôt encombrant, pas très véloce et sans charmes. Face à des petits experts...

När Canon släppte sin bästa kompaktkamera 2012, PowerShot G1 X , skapade de en nisch i nischen. Proffskompakter – eller kompakta kameror som delar vissa egenskaper med spegelreflexer – har nämligen aldrig haft samma bildkvalitet som spegelreflexer. Som...

Canon Powershot G1X II er et godt alternativ til et stort speilreflekskamera. Dessverre koster det like mye, og mangler søker og brukbar batteritid. Men det er lite å utsette på bildekvaliteten, som vi opplever å være på høyde med de beste i...

The Canon Powershot G1x Mark II's true asset is its lens. The lens is very fast with larger aperture. The sensor size is about 20% smaller than an APSC sensor but is decent. The RX100 also has a similar sensor, 1 inch in size. The camera also has a...

Zásadním vylepšením oproti modelu PowerShot G1X je zejména světelnost, která je nyní na hodnotách F2,0 až F3,9 (oproti F2,8 až F5,8). Zvětšil se také rozsah ohnisek objektivu – je širší a delší nyní 24–120 mm oproti původním 28–112 mm.Nejkratší...
