I have just got the Canon G7X camera. we had been happily using a Canon S120 until now to take pictures and shoot videos for our website, blog and YouTube vlog but plan to be filming lots more vlogs in London this year for my blog and website so felt an upgrade was in order.
I noticed a few other YouTube vloggers particularly daily ones switching to the G7X and saying positive things about the quality of the video in any light, and also the addition of a pop up selfie screen looks useful & I was interested to try that feature out.
Take a look at my Review, unboxing + test footage of my new YouTube vlogging camera, the Canon Powershot G7X.
Replicating other vloggers & bloggers equipment is not going to in any way instantly emulate their success that is down to the vloggers themselves not their camera. But not only do I need every bit of help possible creating my content, I want to produce the best quality films I can & I guess that includes the quality of the content in every sense
Canon g7x Wifi
I’m hoping it will produce more professional results and the Canon Wi-Fi app will make sharing the images to other devices such as my phone or tablet and then to social media possible while out and about in town.
In our short film we unbox the camera. Also show how to insert the battery and fitting a memory card – we then show our first look at switching it on and taking a picture then filming video and playback. We then post our first vlog using it and compare it to footage from the Canon S120, and so far it looks like our best vlogging camera yet.
The Canon S120 became considered by many to be one of the best if not the best vlogging camera. The S120 takes a pretty good picture too. Infact it is an update of the S95, S100 + S110. And each in the series of compact cameras when current became considered by many as the best vlogging camera. Perfect at the time for YouTube. And used widely in the USA and here in the UK.
The Powershot G7X from Canon is a huge improvement on the S120 in terms of image quality. Its just a little larger physically and the pop up selfie screen could be a useful addition for vlogging. So I think the G7X is going to prove one of the most popular and go to camera for YouTube. Perfect for vloggers and film makers until it too is eclipsed and superseded like the S120 just has been.
The Canon G7X can film Full HD 60fps 1080p movies. Also video up to 4GB or nearly 30 minutes (memory card dependant). And can share images using WiFi to other devices. Perfect for quick and simple sharing on Social media to sites like Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. This 20 mega pixel digital camera takes pretty good photos too.
Physical size of the G7 X – 103.0 x 60.4 x 40.4 mm
Physical size of the S120 – 100.2 x 59.0 x 29.0 mm
