St. Martin Turks &Caicos
Amazingly, Sony has remained unchallenged in this field for overtwo years, in which time it's managed to introduce two more
generations of RX100. The RX100 III brought an electronicviewfinder and a more consistently bright (albeit shorter) zoom,
helping it climb even further beyond the competition. Thatessentially unchallenged supremacy ends with the arrival of
Canon's PowerShot G7 X.
CHARACTERISTICSLike the RX100 III, the G7 X offers a 1"-type, 20MP BSI sensor matedto an F1.8-2.8 zoom starting at 24mm equivalent. The two camerasare also similar in size and offer broadly similar feature sets. Whichis great for photographers, because it means the Sony finally hassome proper competition.

The LensGiven that image quality is all about light capture, the best way ofmaking the most of a large sensor is to mate it with a bright lens. So,that's another advantage of Canon G7X! Both of cameras (Sony &Canon) may offer the same range on paper, but at any point from24-50mm equivalent, the Canon's lens can be kept wider-open thanthe Sony's, with the difference reaching over 2/3EV at 30mm equiv.Thus, the G7 X is amongst the most consistently bright compacts onthe market, once sensor size has been taken into account, whichshould give excellent control over depth-of-field (including at focallengths useful for classic portraiture) and low light performance.
From most angles the PowerShot G7 X looks like Canon's previous pocketableflagship, the S120. Both have a rounded look, matte black finish, and no grip,but the comparison ends there. The G7 X has a more solid-feeling metal body,a tilting LCD, and a more elaborate (not to mention attractive) top plate. Butmore on that in a moment.
Aside from the lens, the only thing of note on the G7 X is its AF illuminator. Theback is much busier, with the standard PowerShot control scheme, whichincludes a rear dial that surrounds the four-way controller.
On the right side are the I/O ports, detailed on the next page, as well as a'Mobile Device Connect Button' which brings up the Wi-Fi menu. The lens is atfull telephoto here. On the opposite side you'll find the release for the pop-upflash as well as the NFC contact point. The lens is at the wide-angle position inthis view.
The GX 7 looks like a slightly chunkier version of the S120, in the top. But withhigher quality controls and an exposure compensation dial. On the left is theflash, which is collapsed here. It has a maximum range of 7 meters, thoughCanon doesn't say at what ISO setting. Next to that you'll find both themicrophone and speaker, with the power button to its right. The zoomcontroller surrounds the shutter release. At the far right is the mode dial whichis very similar to the one on the S120 and G1 X II. Underneath it sits theexposure comp dial.
Not surprisingly, the 3" LCD on the G7 X is tilting. And, seeing how everyonelikes taking photos of themselves, it goes all the way u
