For the G1 X Mark II, Canon went back to the drawing board, keeping the best part of the G1 X Mark I - its sensor - but refining pretty much everything else. The lens range is broader, the aperture brighter and the focusing closer, all of which make it a much more flexible camera that can deliver...
Great image quality from 1.5in sensor. Best in class., Flexible 5x zoom range with bright aperture., Tilting screen with touch capabilities., Built-in Wifi with NFC and smartphone control.
No built-in viewfinder - it's an optional accessory., Too large to fit in most pockets., Very basic movie capabilities., Average continuous shooting speed., Rudimentary smartphone remote control., Sticky-feeling control ring.
Not only is the image processing improved, but the new lens means that issues with focusing and macro work have also been addressed.
Strong image quality; Solid build; Addition of handgrip welcome; Wi-fi and NFC functionality
Removal of viewfinder will disappoint some; High list price
The Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II fixes just about every fault of the original G1 X, but it's got some stiff competition for your dollar.
Big 1.5-inch image sensor. Wide-aperture 5x zoom lens. Tilting touch-screen display. Quick focus. Excellent manual focus mode with peaking. Creative Shot mode. Raw capture. Add-on EVF available. Wi-Fi-enabled.
Expensive. Soft-focus halo effect when shooting macro images at f/2. Inconsistent autofocus accuracy. Edges never sharpen, even at narrow apertures. Lacks mic input port. Not pocket friendly. Heavy.
The PowerShot G1 X Mark II is an enthusiast compact whose fast lens and large sensor allow it to produce impressive photos in both bright and low light. Its well-built body offers three dials, and numerous controls can be customized.
Very good photo quality, Fast lens with good focal range, capable of very shallow depth-of-field, Solid build quality, with two grips to choose from, Three dial operation: two 'clicky', one smooth, 3-inch tilting LCD flips up 180 degrees for self-portraits, Highly customizable (buttons, dials, and...
Considerable shadow noise in Raw, Abrupt highlight clipping, Program line's tendency to use wide apertures can lead to unintentional background blur, Inner lens ring can be frustratingly unresponsive, AF system can struggle in low contrast / low light situations, No manual focus or exposure...
The PowerShot G1 X Mark II is Canon's newest professional level point-and-shoot camera for 2014. What does that mean, exactly? Basically, for a similar price as an entry-to-mid-level DSLR, this is a fixed lens camera brimming with Canon's latest and best features.
Image quality is outstanding most of the time, Terrific camera for portrait or product photography, Allows recording in JPEG or RAW, Camera works quickly most of the time, Fast f/2.0 lens, Solidly built camera, Tiltable LCD works well for use with a tripod, Offers touchscreen LCD, Uses same field of...
Very heavy for a fixed lens camera, Small optical zoom capability at 5x, Battery life is poor, Camera's performance is slow when using flash or in low light, Design of step ring on lens is poor and has some responsiveness issues, Autofocus sometimes struggles in scenes with no obvious subject or in...
Just as we gave props for ISO handling, Canon gets an overall cheer for the newly designed PowerShot G1 X Mark II. It is a far superior camera to the original (which should be avoided in favor of this model). Now, for the $800 question, should you buy the Mark II?
For a compact camera, the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II has a large image sensor; in fact, it is slightly larger than the sensor found in Micro Four Thirds cameras. The G1 X II offers a moderate resolution of 13 megapixels, with maximum resolution in images with an aspect ratio of 4:3.
Canon’s G-series has been around for a long time — a check on Wikipedia reveals that the first PowerShot G1 Âcamera was released as far back as 2000. BIG LENS: The G1X Mark II has a larger, brighter lens than its predecessor, which is better for low-light work.
Good build quality; excellent images at high ISO settings; extensive control options.
Canon turned a few heads, back when it released the original PowerShot G1 X: the industry's first compact, large-sensor camera to offer a zoom lens. The 1.5"-type sensor was leaps and bounds larger than what's inside the typical compact camera, and it was married with Canon's popular PowerShot...
Wider, longer, faster lens than predecessor, with good overall optical performance (though see Cons), Closer macro focusing than predecessor, Built-in ND filter (3-stop), 3:2 and 4:3 modes offer roughly the same diagonal angle of view, Generally very good image quality, Improved AF performance,...
Localized flare issue wide open (diminishes as you stop down, but somewhat negates having a fast lens), No real net improvement in image quality over predecessor, Below average dynamic range with noisy shadows, Strong distortion correction at wide angle makes corners soft with stretching artifacts,...
The Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II has some solid capabilities and a standout lens, but the overall experience just doesn't live up to its price.
With a couple of exceptions, the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II is very well designed with a functional shooting layout.
The camera is relatively slow and given the price, the photo quality should be better. Also, the grip isn't big enough to maintain a solid hold.
I've shot many weddings and have a canon 5d MK2 and some fine L glass. I'm for the most part, retired now but the wife and I take a yearly cruise with the family and I always drag the wedding camera and lens with me for some great memories.
Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Not Near As Heavy As I Th, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
We like the lithium ion battery as you can recharge it (big savings on purchasing batteries). It takes really sharp, clear photos. Loads of extra features for the money.....directions are clear & concise.....really happy with this purchase~~~
Great for usage in the dark or low light conditions.
It could have come with more pixels.
If you are looking for less price and good quality photos I would recommend you to take this camera
The high quality photos, I did a long research on the camera before I bought it
The only thing I didn't like that it's kind of heavy
not a bad addition to the camera when given as a gift. the lenses definitely are a "one size fits all" kind of thing. they are of decent quality. something to play around with and learn how to use the different filters and lenses.
We have two Canon digital cameras and have had good luck with them. This one has advanced features that our previous models lack such as WIFI and NFC as well as larger CMOS sensor. Once again Canon received the top rating in the advanced point and shoot category in a major consumer magazine.
This camera was bought to replace my Canon G11. I normally used the LCD which folded out and was fully articulated. The G1X MarkII has an LCD that tilts and nearly provides the same flexibility. The rest of the camera is outstanding. I also purchased the filter adapter and the Lens Hood.
