Some time has passed since the premiere of Canon PowerShot G5 X and today the producer decided to show a new version of the camera, calling it Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II - what a surprise.
The camera has been equipped with the 1" BSI-CMOS sensor with the resolution of 20.1MP, supported by the efficient processor from the DIGIC 8 series which is to guarantee high efficiency and speed of work. This set enables taking photographs with the maximum ISO sensitivity of 12800 and the speed of 30f/s with the use of the electronic shutter, or with the speed of 8f/s with full autofocus support.

When it comes to the autofocus, the camera is equipped with phase detection and the AF+MF function, with a possibility of image focusing in the automatic mode. We also have the in-built ND filter (!) at our disposal, which is going to prove useful while working on sunny days.
G5 X Mark II enables recording films in 4K with the speed of 30f/s as well as recording slow-motion films with the speed of 120f/s.
Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II has been equipped with the in-built universal 8.8-44mm lens (equivalent of 24-120mm for full frame) and the variable light of f/1.8-2.8.
Still, the biggest change in comparison to the camera's predecessor is the construction of the new camera. The previous model resembled the camera with the optical viewfinder whereas the new model looks like a popular compact camera.
Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II has a retractable electronic viewfinder with the resolution of 2.36 million points and 100% frame coverage. What's more, we also get a touch 3'' TFT LCD screen with the resolution of 1,040,000 points, which can be rotated upwards, thanks to which we may see ourselves while video blogging. The function wheel which, apart from basic photography modes, has a separate exposition compensation knob, also looks interesting.
Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II weighs 340g and it has in-built Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, pop-up flash and the HDMI output.
The camera is to appear on sale in August and it will cost $899. You can check actual Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II price here.
