G5X Mark II Review

Canon launched recently the G5X Mark II and the G7X Mark III.  These two cameras share a fair amount of features, but the G5X Mark II sports a 5x zoom and an EVF in a slightly bigger camera package.

The G5X Mark II at a glance;

  • 20.2MP 1" Stacked CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • 5x Optical Zoom f/1.8-2.8 Lens
  • 24-120mm (35mm Equivalent)

The G5X Mark II is available to purchase now.  Get yours today.

PhotographyBlog completed their review and gave it 4 out of 5 stars.  They conclude;

Putting all comparisons aside for the moment and looking at the Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II on its own though and it’s a very likeable camera. Its small pocket-friendly size, plus the viewfinder and screen combination make it a very pleasant holiday or travel camera. It’s nice to use, with a good array of buttons and dials, plus a good handgrip for making it feel secure in the hand.

If you like to capture the odd video, having uncropped 4K is good - and while some will be disappointed not to have an external mic input, for family videos and the like, the inbuilt mic is perfectly adequate.

Although there’s a lot to like about this camera, there’s also a few negative points which deserve to be mentioned. Battery life is a little limited, especially for a travel camera, while it could do with more customisation options to change how various buttons work. Autofocusing is decent with static subjects, but as soon as you introduce a bit of movement, then the results aren’t quite so good - especially disappointing for a camera that offers such fast burst shooting.
