Canon PowerShot G1X Mark II

You don’t necessarily think of Canon when you think compact cameras, but hey, you also don’t think of churros when you think dessert, yet they do a damn good job when called upon.

The PowerShot G1X Mark II is the follow-up to Canon’s G1X camera, and it’s a pretty big revamping. One thing that hasn’t changed (wisely) is the strategy of “big sensor in small body,” and that holds true here with the 1.5-inch, 12.8 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor. That, combined with the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, creates Canon’s HS SYSTEM, which should mean excellent low-light performance. The newly developed lens with dual control rings offers customized functions like you’ll find with SLR lenses, and the 9-blade aperture provides those sweet blurred backgrounds, even at full range zoom. You can shoot in 14-bit RAW + JPEG, and the dedicated movie button grabs your 1080p video. [Purchase]
