Canon announces Powershot G9 X Mark II
Canon has announced the successor to the PowerShot G9 X - the G9 X Mark II.
The new model has the same basic design, feel and weight of the original and continues to be the smallest compact camera on the market with a 1" (20.2 megapixel) sensor. It also carries over the existing 28-82mm equiv. F2-4.9 lens of its predecessor.
Big updates include the new Digic 7 processor (as first seen in the larger G7 X Mark II) which enables Raw burst shooting at up to 8.2 fps for 21 frames; and Dual Sensing Image Stabilisation, meaning that information from the lens and sensor is combined to offer a claimed 3.5 stops of image stabilisation.
The G9 X Mark II is also the first Canon PowerShot digital camera equipped with Bluetooth for easy pairing with a compatible smartphone or tablet.
Other features include in-camera Raw conversion, Time-Lapse Movie Mode to help capture images at preset intervals and combine them to create short movie clips, greater customisation options, improved AF tracking and better scene recognition in auto mode. The G9X Mark 11 also features a pop-up flash and 3.0" Touch Panel LCD.
The Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II digital camera is scheduled to be available February 2017 for an estimated retail price of $529.99 (USD).
