Mark II finally arrives, the body performance is fully upgraded
After two years of waiting, we finally ushered in the G1X Mark II, an upgraded model of the Canon G1X. It can be said that the naming of Canon Camera G1X Mark II review has already demonstrated Canon’s expectations for this camera. We all know how famous Canon’s camera called the Invincible Mark Rabbit (Canon EOS 5D Mark II) is, and it can also be seen that Canon attaches great importance to this new model.
Of course, only the change in naming is obviously not enough. Canon G1X Mark II has also made a lot of upgrades in terms of body performance. The visual change is a huge change in the overall design of the body. A smaller body size brings better portability. In terms of shooting performance, the new camera is also refurbished in every way: new sensor, new lens, new processor . There are really many changes on the G1X Mark II this time. We will first list the detailed body parameters of the new model for your reference:
