Great combination of features in a small package
This is a great little camera. My big camera is a 5D Mark III, but often it's too large and heavy to carry around. This is the perfect size to slip into my pants when I want something discreet. I'll compare this to the RX100 (I and IV) and the G7X; my family have owned these so I'm pretty familiar w...

Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II Review
The Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II camera is more responsive than its predecessor, and squeezes a big 1-inch sensor into a compact frame.

I am glad I picked it up
I own a dozen different point and shoot Canon powershot cameras. Mainly in the Elph line, but also the 510HS and SX700HS. When this G9X was announced, I decided to pre-order because of the reviews of the G7X, the 1 inch sensor, and the size. I also wanted to step up to more of a proper camera, and h...

DPReview: Using the G9 X
It is this canon g 9x. Now this is still the smallest slimmest. One inch sensor compact on the market comes with one nice, clicky control, dial

Great true advance compact camera
Great camera! It's not a perfect camera by any definition, but it's a great camera for what I'm looking for. Before i go to some details, I just want to point out that i'm just a camera enthusiast with some basic knowledge of camera hardware and image composition. I'm, by no mean, an expert in camer...

Fits in pocket - will travel the world together
I am so excited about this little (tiny!) camera. I immediately went outside and started testing it out: bright light, macro, low-light, shadow, depth of field/bokeh, indoors, pet running around like a banshee, and it's allllllll gooooood! This camera is very small though, and I almost felt like I w...

Very good
I read many reviews and did a lot of comparison shopping before buying this camera for a vacation. My DSLR was too big and bulky to take with me and this little camera was great. A lot of great features and very impressive resolution from the 1-inch sensor. The one glitch which I think is either a d...

It does indeed take very good photos, especially considering it's size
The G9 X is a mixed bag. It does indeed take very good photos, especially considering it's size. There are two down sides that other potential buyers may want to know about and the reason that I give it 3/5 stars. First, the button layout makes it essentially impossible to hold without unintentional...

A delightful camera in a small package
I chose this camera after reading a lot of reviews. This model had been replaced by a new version, but the reviews I saw suggested the original was an excellent camera, so I purchased a used model from Replay Tech. (There was a minor issue with the initial delivery which was quickly resolved - great...
