Canon G7X comprehensive hands on review

by | Apr 13, 2015 | Blog, MAARTECH

Cameras with one-inch sensors seem to provide a good compromise between sensor/camera size and quality. I was interested to see how Canon’s implementation performed.


I do my best to be objective. The camera was on loan from Canon. I’m not employed, affiliated or compensated by Canon or their media relations agency and they did not see this review before posting.

Although I’d really finished the review, Canon extended the loan for a week so I could take the camera to The Finest in Playa Mujeres for our March Break. The G7X is exactly the kind of camera you want for a holiday.

Music was provided by Adam Sakiyama, a very talented composer – you can find out more about him on his blog.
Photos are available on flickr, where you’ll find the EXIF data – and a few great images that didn’t make it into the video. The photos are mapped to the video resolution using “Fit” and 95%. All photos have been processed in Lightroom, minimally in most cases.
Screens are captured using a Sony A6000 with the SEL30M35 macro lens. They’re edited and sometimes speeded up, so not usually an accurate representation of the time it takes in real life. On camera scenes recorded with the Sony A6000. On camera, I use the Sennheiser ew-2 wireless system, dual system recorded to a Zoom H2N. VO recorded using a Rode NT-USB.

I welcome your comments and questions and reply to all.
