The Canon Powershot G7X II is the latest in a somewhat confusing line of compact cameras, most of which are based on the same 1″ sensor. Compared to the low-end G9X, the G7X II adds a touch & tilt rear LCD, but doesn’t include the electronic viewfinder found on the G5X. The upgrades from the original G7X, released 1.5 years earlier, include a better grip and a control ring around the lens.
In the battle for the best pocketable compact camera, Gordon compares this latest-version Canon G7X to the older Sony RX100 III (includes a pop-up EVF and slightly more expensive) and to the more-recent Sony RX100 IV (with 4k video but substantially more expensive).
