Canon PowerShot G1X Mark II

Camera Labs
1 September 2014
  • Summary: 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...
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: 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.

Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II

22 July 2014
  • Excerpt: We've been looking forward to the arrival of the Canon G1 X Mark II ever since we reviewed the original Canon G1 X two years ago. It packed a large sensor and zoom lens into a magnesium alloy body that was littered with manual controls, and was just about small and light enough to fit into pockets.

Canon PowerShot G1 X MkII review

Pocket Lint
5 May 2014
  • Conclusion: Faster, leaner, meaner: the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II represents a considerable overhaul to the series. It's an entirely different beast compared to its predecessor and we salute it for that.
  • Pros: DSLR quality images, sturdy build, great new lens, physical lens control rings, autofocus speed and macro focus improvements, considerable customisation
  • Cons: Super expensive, now no viewfinder for the price, autofocus not ample for professional continuous AF, some controls seem fussy, a bit chunky, widest aperture no good for macro wide-angle shots

Das Digitalkamera-Magazin
16 June 2014
  • Conclusion: In der Praxis zeichnet sich die Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II vor allem durch sehr viele Tasten und Einstellräder aus, das Kameragehäuse ist allerdings alles andere als kompakt. Mehr zur Bildqualität und  Geschwindigkeit erfahren Sie jetzt.

  • Cons: Für eine Kompaktkamera sehr groß und schwer, Schwammiger Druckpunkt des Auslösers, Keine manuellen Optionen im Videomodus und auch kein Mikrofoneingang
