Just because the holidays are past doesn’t mean it’s time to stop making memories and documenting them. For this, or for any budding or practiced photographer, there are great camera deals to check out. One standout is this Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II 20.1-Megapixel Digital Camera, which is at Best Buy. It’s down to $500 from its regular price of $630, which is a huge savings.
The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II 20.1-Megapixel Digital Camera has full video capabilities and really puts a great deal of the power and accuracy of a larger digital SLR camera into a little point-and-shoot you can shove into your pocket and take to an event, on a vacation, on a workout — anywhere. Ideal for everyday photos, more serious documentation, as well as blogging, it has a huge sensor, 4.2 x zoom, and built-in WiFi; a great choice for anyone looking for a pocket camera.
A fantastic pocket point-and-shoot needs to be user friendly, and this one comes out of the box ready to turn anyone into an amateur shutterbug. First, it has a ton of preset scene modes — portrait, self-portrait, panning, nightscape, time-lapse movie, high dynamic range, underwater — to help you capture the exact shot you’re trying for. And there are effects galore to add some fun and creativity to the mix. Also, if you’re a new shooter, or for younger users, there’s the optical image stabilizer, which helps keep your shots from blurring, even in not-so-sturdy hands. Finally, Canon has designed this camera with ISO up to 25,600, so you’re covered in less-than-ideal lighting situations.
What sets this camera apart, and makes its original price tag worthwhile — nevermind the discount — is the giant 20.1-megapixel, 1-inch CMOS sensor. This is the camera’s eye (and its heart), and allows you to grab high-res images up to 5472 x 3648 pixels — gigantic! You can apply the 4.2 x optical zoom for easy cropping and better accuracy, and there’s a 3-inch color touch-screen to make setting up and editing not just easier, but more accurate. Add to this a burst mode, full video at 60 fps with audio, a built-in flash, and a powerful processor and you have one of the most advanced, versatile, and user-friendly pocket cameras we’ve ever seen.
