dragonWhen I unpacked the camera from it’s original package and held it in my hands for the first time, it appeared elegant, compact but weighty and… quite technical. The camera body looks sophisticated and fit quite comfortably in my hand. The large 3’’ flip-up LED touch screen allows the photographer to display, preview and compose pictures. My new camera was also equipped with a wifi allowing for easy posting of images to social networking and media sites such as Facebook®, Twitter®, YouTube™ and Flickr®. It was also possible to save them to a photo album to share anytime, anywhere. (…) Access the Review of the Canon G7X in FG7X Fantasea Housing


It seems like Canon’s new G7 X has it all: A large 1”-­‐type, 20-­‐megapixel BSI sensor, a fast f/1.8–2.8 24–100mm equivalent zoom lens, and an ultra-­‐compact design. The G7 X follows the style of Canon’s S-­‐series cameras, which are known for their friendly user interface and impressively compact size, and at the same time, provides the advanced features and direct controls which are usually found on Canon’s G-­‐series compacts.
