Canon PowerShot G7 X Review

Canon G7 X

The Canon PowerShot G7 X is one of those cameras that we have all been waiting for Canon to deliver. At the moment it was announced, there was a collective mumble of “finally” uttered among Canon enthusiasts around the world.

While Canon has attempted putting larger sensors on compact cameras (e.g., the G1 X), nothing had risen to the level of what Sony has been doing with its RX100 line of cameras. The Canon PowerShot G7 X is, in many ways, a knock-off of the Sony RX100 line. It even appears to use the same Sony 1″ sensor found in the RX100 cameras with its 20MP resolution, which is perfectly fine with me since Sony makes such a great product in the RX100 line.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Review at DigitalRev

Digital Rev has posted its latest video review with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II with Kai at the helm again. While he’s not a fan of the retro styling, he seems to think the E-M5 Mark II is a solid Micro Four Thirds camera.

Last week, we showcased an image stabilization comparison between the E-M5 Mark II and the Panasonic GH4, in which the E-M5 Mark II again performed very well.

It looks like the E-M5 Mark II is shaping up to be quite the versatile camera.

Canon 7D Mark II Review

7D Mark II-11

The Canon 7D Mark II is going to sit on the APS-C throne for Canon over next few years. It has been a hot topic of discussion since it was first announced and initial impressions of the camera have been very positive.

I have used the camera for a couple of months and have been very impressed with most aspects of the camera. While there is no one feature that is a “Wow!” factor when you look at the Canon 7D Mark II’s spec sheet, all of the little things start to add up for a solid-performing camera born from the pedigree of the original Canon 7D.
