Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II Review

March 7, 2017 | Mark Goldstein |


Although owners of the original Canon PowerShot G9 X aren't going to be too excited by the improvements on offer, the new Mark II does represent a minor step forward for Canon's most pocket-friendly compact camera, particularly in its operational speed. 

Continuous shooting rates, auto-focusing speed and general all-round performance have been boosted by the impressive Digic 7 processor, while image quality at high ISOs is subsequently slightly better too. Improved image stabilisation and slightly longer battery life are also desirable features, while the new always-on Bluetooth connection is a welcome addition.

In summary, the Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II adds just enough new features (just) to make it worth considering as a truly take-anywhere pocket camera.
