Announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January, the PowerShot G9 X Mark II is the successor to the original model of the same name introduced in October 2015. Although marketed as a premium model, the G9 X is in fact the entry-level variant in the company’s lineup of cameras using the 1-inch type CMOS sensor. While the G7 X, G5 X, and G3 X models also use the 1-inch type sensor, they are more expensive and they’re also larger: the G9 X is still the most pocket-friendly model available of its type.
Around 16 months after the launch of the Mark IV, Sony has released the latest iteration in its RX100 series of high-end compact cameras. The Sony RX100 V features a similar 20.1Mp 1”-type BSI-CMOS sensor and the same equivalent 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens as its predecessor, the Mark IV. So no changes there; instead, Sony has focused on some serious performance enhancements for the Mark V, including a new autofocus system and faster frame rate. The Sony RX100 V features a new 315-point phase-detection autofocus system that offers around 65% frame coverage, as well as face detection autofocus, which is particularly useful for shooting video. Continuous shooting has been significantly improved as well, up to a rapid 24fps (frames per second) for both RAW and JPEG files, with full autofocus and exposure tracking up to an impressive 150 shots.
