Canon has announced a refinement of its 2015 compact model, the PowerShot G9 X, upgrading it to a second-generation ‘Mark II’ incarnation.

The camera retains the 1-inch CMOS sensor of its predecessor, but now features the DIGIC 7 processor, as seen on the G7 X Mark II and the EOS M5 in 2016. The continuous drive functionality has been boosted from 6 fps to 8.2 fps, and the Mark II is a shade more compact than the original G9 X, coming in at 206 g with battery against the original camera’s 209 g.

Like the original, there’s a 3x optical zoom lens offering the equivalent of 28-84mm in 35mm sensor terms.

Capable of shooting Full HD movies, lens control ring and LCD touchscreen, the camera has plenty to offer in terms of connectivity, too. A Wi-Fi button, Wireless Remote Shooting, Dynamic NFC and a constant Bluetooth connectivity option for sharing of images even when the camera is not in use.

The PowerShot G9X Mark II will be available from February 2017 with an RRP of £449.99/€569.99. For more information, please visit the Canon website.
