Henryk,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
sold my 700D and bought this one, you do not require a degree in menus for it, you have a f1.8-2.8 lens + Raw and at a price a lot less than a lens when i realised i very rarely used the longer lenses.
Bad points:
No view finder, and why do they supply the battery charger with a long lead when it looks like the American market gets one which plugs straight into the wall.

Ian, Newark on Trent Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great for had held night shots....lots of options...
Bad points:
Can't shoot quickly if using the hand held night shot mode as it takes multiple images and processes them to give a shake-free photo....

Very complicated will take a while to fully understand all the features.

Manufacturer's Description

The Canon PowerShot G7 X is the second generation of Canon’s larger-sensor point-and-shoot line, featuring a new 1-inch 20.2MP CMOS sensor. Not only does the Canon PowerShot G7 X boast a big 1-inch sensor with a high ISO of 12,800 and 20MP resolution (up from its predecessor’s 14MP), but Canon claims it has greatly improved AF acquisition speed to 0.14 seconds, which is almost instantaneous.

Canon has improved several key features over the previous generation Canon G1X. These include higher resolution (20 vs. 14MP), closer macro focus (2 inches vs. 7.9), maximum aperture (f/1.8-2.4 vs. f/2.8-5.8) and higher LCD monitor resolution (1020k vs. 922k).

Most likely the most obvious new feature is the LCD. The 3-inch touchscreen flips up and over the top of the camera, letting the user shoot selfies. These can be easily uploaded to photo sharing sites via on-board WiFi, which is both Mac and Android-friendly, and NFC technology, which lets you pair with compatible Android devices.

The lens has a 9-blade diaphragm for more rounded and natural-looking bokeh, and a sophisticated Image Stabilization with up to 8 IS modes available, depending on the nature of the camera motion. Video is available in full 1080/60p and is recorded in MP4 format.
