Hey, haven’t I seen this camera before?
Yes and no. The Canon PowerShot G9 X II is a refreshed version of the breakthrough 2015 model and shares much of its classic good looks. But there are some decent improvements here to tempt any smartphone snapper looking to upgrade their photography game.
I want to make stacks of cash on Instagram. Can this camera help?
Dude, it’s a compact camera – not Jason Stein. You’re on your own with the monetizing thing, but this souped-up Canon can certainly help you take gorgeous photos and Full HD video to populate your account. The G9 X II has many juicy features, including a large 1.0-type CMOS sensor and wide-aperture lens for nailing low-light shots without blur, plus a 3x optical zoom and Canon’s powerful Digic 7 image processor.
Nice. What else is good?
It has Wi-Fi, Dynamic NFC and Bluetooth connectivity, so you can transfer images from the camera to your smartphone, then tweak the images in your favorite filter apps before sharing the results on social media.
And what about modes and stuff?
You’re in luck there too because the G9 X II has plenty of creative modes for capturing interesting shots – tinker with Time-lapse, a Water Painting effect or Handheld Night Scene for after-dark imagery.
Sounds good. When’s it coming out?
The Canon PowerShot G9 X II is on sale now.
