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

Amazing semi-compact camera

Jerad Hill, B&H Photo
21 July 2014
  • 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

Wonderful upgrade

BuffaloBob, Adorama
10 June 2014
  • Excerpt: 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. The quality of the pictures is amazing.
  • Pros: Canon 30, Canon G11, Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
  • Cons: No Viewfinder

Perfect for someone who already has a DSLR

Amazon Customer, Amazon
9 June 2014
  • Summary: If you already has a DSLR, particuarly a large FF one, you might want a smaller and lighter one to carry around when you don't wish to take out all the large gears. This small camera is perfect for you. It has the perfect lens, easy to use manual control rings and sensible weight to show you are an adult with a decent tool, not a young boy with a tiny toy.
