Great camera!

  • Excerpt: I'm an underwater photographer and shoot mainly on Maui. Had been using the G10 for years and finally decided it was time for an upgrade, should have done it sooner! The G1-X Mark II is fantastic, image quality, speed, and familiar comtrols make it a breeze to work with. Another great camera in the G canon G series!
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light

Great camera to have on you at all times

  • Excerpt: I am a portrait photographer x25 years, wedding photographer x1 year. I prefer my 5D Mark III with my 70-200mm 2.8 II but, despite a really good bag, it was a nuisance to have with my large family on vacation. I found myself missing photo ops because it was too windy on the beach, fearing sand damage to my camera. I came home and went to B&H and purchased the G1X Mark II knowing I could return if it didn't meet my needs.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
  • Cons: No Viewfinder

Great Travel Camera!

  • Excerpt: I upgraded from the G1X, and I have been very happy with the G1X Mark II. The IQ is excellent, and the camera is very easy to use. I am somewhat of a traditionalist, but the touch screen controls have really been a nice addition. I have had no issues with focusing speed or accidental thumb press of the WiFi button, both of which seem to be the niggling issues reported by other reviewers.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time
  • Cons: Expensive Spare Battery, Usa Grip Is Too Small

  • Excerpt: Just learning, but Love the outcome so far! I almost sent this back because of how heavy the camera is, but after I used it a bit, and absolutely LOVE the vibrant pictures that are coming out, I will put up with the weight. I am loving this camera!

Amazing semi-compact camera

Jerad Hill, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Love this camera. Though it is a little too large to pocket, this camera hands down captures comparable photos to a DSLR. I purchased the camera so I could have something to take with me that was not either a cell phone or a Canon DSLR. I have owned Canon G series compacts before and liked them. It is easy to capture photos and transfer them wirelessly to your phone for editing and uploading to social media. NFC is not true NFC on this camera.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD

Thought I wanted the Sony RX100M3

Sam, B&H Photo
15 July 2014
  • Excerpt: After lots of research I purchased the new Sony RX100 Mark III but after a couple of weeks of testing, it was returned and I ordered the G1X Mark II and now I'm happy. The results I've gotten so far with my new G1X MII (I also owned and loved the G1X MI) have been more than I expected. My first shoot included lots of avaiable light and fill flash shots of people and even the JPG's impressed me; the color and skin tones were beautiful.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
  • Cons: No Viewfinder, Short Battery Life
