A couple of years ago, Canon released the compact, pocketable Canon G9X. Its successor, the Canon G9X Mark II, remains very small and uses the same 20.2-megapixel 1-inch-type sensor. The G9X II brings with it a new, faster image processor, which helps make the G9X II an even better compact camera.

In our hands-on time with the Canon G9X II, its excellent touchscreen user interface shined. While the camera doesn’t have the same physical controls as its larger-bodied siblings, it offers very good image quality, quick autofocus and good all-around performance.

10.2mm (28mm equiv.), f/7.1, 1s, ISO 125. This image has been modified.

While the Canon G9X II may not offer all the features of some of its competition, it nonetheless delivers good imaging performance in a nice, compact camera body which you can easily slip into a jacket or pants pocket. To learn about its strengths and weaknesses, read our Canon G9X II Field Test.
