The lens has additional optical stabilization, which improves its performance during the night time and during video recording. The BSI-CMOS sensor measures 1" (13.2×8.8mm) and a 20.1MP resolution, which is supported by the DIGIC 8 processor, which is to guarantee high performance and speed of operation. Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II is also able to photograph with sensitivities ISO 125-12800. The camera saves files in RAW as well as JPEG format at a maximum resolution of 5472×3648px. The camera also has a wide range of other resolutions as well as aspect ratios. The Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II also works great as a video camera. This compact camera allows recording videos in 4K resolution at 30fps (without crop) with the support of electronic image stabilization and 120fps slow motion recording. The autofocus used in the camera is based on the contrast detection system with AF + MF function which gives us the opportunity to re-focus the image in automatic mode. Unfortunately, Canon has not decided to use the DualPixel AF in this camera. Autofocus has Face Detection function and touch AF ability. When it comes to shooting speed, we have a "burst" function that uses an electronic shutter and allows you to shoot at 30fps as well as a function that uses a mechanical shutter that allows shooting at 8fps with full autofocus support. PowerShot G5 X Mark II has a built-in electronic pop-up style viewfinder made in OLED technology with a resolution of 2.36 million points, which will provide 100% coverage of the frame. For this we also get a tilt and touch 3-inch TFT LCD screen with a resolution of 1.04 million points, who will help us compose shots from difficult perspectives, as well as photographing yourself, thanks to the possibility of tilting the screen 180 degrees up. The camera looks like a classic compact, which is made of magnesium and plastic alloys. The G5 Mark II has two separate knobs, one for selecting the modes second for adjusting exposure compensation. The lens also has a focus adjustment ring. There is also a HDMI output without compression, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules, a pop-up flash and a menu layout inspired by Canon EOS cameras, as well as extensive personalization capabilities, thanks to which we can quickly set the most appropriate parameters. As for a compact camera, the whole structure is extremely lightweight and weighs only 340g. Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II is a very interesting camera for people who need an extremely mobile alternative to heavy cameras with replaceable optics. PHOTOS OF CANON POWERSHOT G5 X MARK II CANON POWERSHOT G5 X MARK II VIDEO REVIEW COMPARISON WITH SIMILAR CAMERAS The Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II competes in terms of performance and price with the two cameras. The first is the previous model, the Canon PowerShot G5 X, which gives way to this model mainly in terms of video function. This camera is available used or new at a very attractive price. The second alternative for this model will be the camera that premiered the same day or the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III. Here the main difference lies in the lack of a built-in electronic viewfinder in this model. However, the difference in price is quite clear and it is worth considering if the lack of a viewfinder is worth as much as $150.
