Hi, friends. I went hiking in the Red River Gorge last week for several days and loved it. What I didn't love was my 6D with 24-105 over my shoulder.

My instinct is to get the G9x ii for its size (I had the original and loved it. The positives were fixed screen (personal preference), the low price, and the small size. Negatives are the limited zoom range and the slow apertures.

The G7X ii has a better range and aperture but is 200 more dollars.

My biggest priority is portability. It has to be pocketable. How small is the G7X ii?

If you go to the Canon website, you can actually do a side-by-side comparison of the cameras. I just did a comparison of the G7 X II, the G9 X, and the G9 X II. If the G9 X is pocketable for you, my guess would be the G7 X II is probably also pocketable. That said, I have a G16, which is around the same size, and would not consider it pocketable in the least. I use a small case for it, and find it to be a great grab-n-go camera. Hope this helps!

Thank you.

I just checked your link, and noticed the price difference is actually $250. I think I'll grab the G9Xii.

I'm not really intending to use it much in low light and I can live with the zoom range. I just need something for hiking, biking, etc.

Thanks again.

I bought the G9. The G7 looked great but was too big for my pocket and for my wallet. Enjoy it though.

My G7Xii experience has been a let down. I have gone through every picture mode and everything gives soft pics except Portrait Mode. That is the only way I can shoot the thing. And yes, Macro is horrible.

Unless I am doing something wrong with it and someone can tell me how to make it better I am looking to buy something different for a pocketable point-n-shoot that can do more when needed.

There is definitely something wrong with the camera if all the pics are soft. The macro isn't the greatest, I know. You might want to go into the menu and reset all the factory settings and start over. I believe that is an available option.

I shoot 90% of my photos on "P" mode along with "TV & M" modes based on needs.

The pic of my bike is outside on "P" mode and very clear as far as I am concerned.

This one was taken at Christmas, indoors with no flash. Had I used the flash on say -2, it would have provided a sharper picture.

It could be me, I'm still working with it.

Just got this camera to replace my old G12 as a compact carry-around. Love it so far!

Indoors, no flash, ISO 800, shot RAW with Lightroom Classic CC processing. I'm really liking this camera - think my 70D will be seeing less use. I originally joined the forum in 2001 when I got the G1 - the series has come a long way.
