What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II Digital Camera w/1 Inch Sensor and tilt LCD screen
  • The weight. So much power in a package you can bring with you just about anywhere.
  • The size! It is a little bigger than pocket size, but fits great in a purse and definitely in cargo short pockets.
  • It is super light weight. I took this camera along with me on a day out and it didn't feel like I was holding a brick when I was filming.
  • It might be small, but the metal body makes it a little on the heavy side.
  • It is a little larger and heavier than the much less expensive point and shoot it replaces but the difference in performance more than makes up for it.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX10 Camera, 20.1 Megapixel 1" Large Sensor
  • This is an ideal choice for consumers who demand pocket sized camera and don't want to break the bank.
  • Size is small and light, large pants pocket-able to be sure (careful of lint).
  • It is a great compact camera. It is very fast. Every picture I took is great.
  • Smaller size; these cameras keep growing. RX100 MK1 was great, MK2 just OK, and MK34 I could feel it's not right anymore. LX10 is even bigger and I don't like that.
  • A very nice quality photo and video camera does not fit in any pocket but the sensor size and raw capability it is ok.

What customers say about "Imaging"
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II Digital Camera w/1 Inch Sensor and tilt LCD screen
  • Focus is quick and accurate (unless your subject is a 4yo that moves faster than a running back).
  • Picture quality is excellent for the sensor size (or for any camera really).
  • he image stabilization saved my bacon a time or two. Not the 4 stops you see on a $2k lens, but still pretty good.
  • Having full manual mode as well as the semi-auto modes (Av, Tv) is great for those of us that want that level of control.
  • The picture quality is top notch. I went from using a Go Pro and my cell phone, and this was a huge step up. Clear picture on both video and pictures.
  • There is only one fully auto mode - no "Sports", "Landscape", or "Portrait" modes.
  • High speed continuous mode in Raw+JPEG fills the buffer in a hurry (I know, a bit nitpicky).
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX10 Camera, 20.1 Megapixel 1" Large Sensor
  • It is really sharp and does A LOT better in low light than my giant Canon 7D. Even when the light is terrible, this camera will at least get you a usable picture, even if it is a bit splotchy.
  • Takes great clear photos. Moving from a simple point & shoot camera so I am still learning all the new features. The pictures in the Auto (iA) mode takes excellent pics.
  • Extraordinary focus speed and burst / 4K photo modes to catch elusive action.
  • The images are sharp, the Summilux lens is not exactly a Leitz, but is manufactured by Panasonic to Leitz's specs I have no complaints. It is a fast lens.
  • Took a while to get used to operating this camera but the quality of photos are just what I was looking for.

What customers say about "Display"
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II Digital Camera w/1 Inch Sensor and tilt LCD screen
  • Fantastic touch screen that's very responsive. I haven't owned many past cameras that use a touch screen for so many settings, but this guy is able to deal with most everything right on the screen.
  • The swivel screen is nice, and I've found myself using the downward tilt for high shots more than I expected.
  • The flip screen makes life SO much easier.
  • Touch screen that works great and the touch to focus is awesome and quick.
  • The bright touch screen tilts down which helps make it more visible in sunlight or visible when the camera is being held over my head.

  • The articulating screen works great so I can keep the camera at chest level and not annoy people around me.
  • Touchscreen is very clear an sharp.
  • I sometimes find the touch screen to be as bothersome as useful.
  • No tilt down screen.

What customers say about "Features"
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II Digital Camera w/1 Inch Sensor and tilt LCD screen
  • An incredible amount of presets for multiple shooting situations make it so the novice will not need to fiddle with manual settings much (if ever).
  • The low light performance on this camera is absurdly good. I'm frankly not sure how they do it. I was sitting in a chair in my living room in what was nearly pitch black, and the camera was able to light the shot to the point that it looked like the room was fully lit.
  • Unlike the first edition, with the Mark II you can shoot in the "film quality" 24p, which I tend to enjoy.
  • The bokeh is good on this camera for the most part, getting very high quality bokeh/background blur if your foreground and background images are 6 or more feet apart.
  • The battery is simply not capable of supporting what this camera can do. They probably needed a battery twice its size, so buy at least one extra battery.
  • The touchscreen manual focus is nice, but trying to adjust it without touch focusing is very cumbersome.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX10 Camera, 20.1 Megapixel 1" Large Sensor
  • There is a lot of customization you can do, it took me awhile to figure out that I could actually make the focus ring actually...control the manual focus, since it didn't do that by default.
  • With the F1.4 Leica lens, it works great indoors without a flash and performs extremely well outdoors for landscape shots.
  • Flash and low light photography is awesome. It’s amazing pre set setting work wonders for beginners. Clear, crisp photos for the Gram and any other social media.
  • It has a lot of features packed into it including 4k video, which I have no interest in. But it does shoot bursts in a way that enables the capture of sharp photos in a fast moving situation.
  • Image quality, ease of use, and especially the stabilization made it invaluable!
  • Haven't used the camera yet because the AC adapter is missing from the box. Very disappointing.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II Digital Camera w/1 Inch Sensor and tilt LCD screen
  • Very simple wifi connection to your phone or computer makes getting shots on instagram (or wherever) a breeze.
  • The Wi-Fi works well and the mobile app (on Android at least) works great.
  • Wish it had GPS or at least a compass built in.
  • My rating would be 5 stars but the fact that Canon deliberately omitted equipping this camera with GPS is immensely disappointing.
  • I do wish it came with a USB cable but that's not a big deal.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX10 Camera, 20.1 Megapixel 1" Large Sensor
  • The ease of downloading the photos onto my cell phone is nice.
  • Very sharp camera - transfers photos over to my iPhone X well.
  • Only issue is the WIFI remote control's distant is too short.
