I call this classic because out of all the Canon cameras which I’ve tried and tested, the Canon PowerShot G7X Mark II is my favourite. It epitomizes Canon’s tagline of ‘ delighting you always’. Using this camera truly delights me because every image and videos shot was of great quality using minimal effort. It’s one camera that realises the dream of taking great photos like a photographer in the user.
Who doesn’t love using cameras that are light, compact, affordable and never fails to produce great quality shots all the time? No wonder it is one of the bestselling Canon cameras and also the best vlogging camera as recommended by most YouTubers. Its capabilities are sufficient for me to take decent photographs for my blog and high-quality videos for my YouTube videos. Best part? I don’t have to lug a huge camera around when I travel. When that beautiful moment comes, I am able to whip out my camera quickly and snap a shot before I missed it. It so slim and compact that I am unable to slot it into my purse.
