On article Second Time Around: Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II Review (267 comments in total)

The flash now bounces to the ceiling. To me blinding people with head on flash is as clueless as having bad breath and not doing anything about it. You can train a child in 5 head on flashes to avoid cameras.

The Canon jpegs have great skin tones, whereas the Sonys give white blanche faces. The X70 Fuji has the best skin tones. The Ricoh GR has grey zombie skin tones at hi ISO. The Nikon Coolpix A has great jpegs.

The non clicky wheel is very needed as the original G7X click clack was so loud.

The Sonys have no touch screen. The G7Xii is a pleasure to shoot with, I took 300 pictures in 1 hour and has a great time.

I am still searching for the best portrait mode in settings and distance.

All is fair in love and war. Video today has opened another dimension. Let the customer decide. What about dual m4/3 sensors? Side and rear m4/3 sensors? What about 4K video or 6K video? What about IS? XIS? Laser projection EVF? Courtesy of Apple Must Cortland.

pkcpga: Nice review and nice looking camera, nice photos, only wish it had a viewfinder. I guess if it did it would be over priced liked the newer rx100's. At this price point it should be a hit for canon. I wonder if the Nikon DL's are using the same Sony sensor or if they're going to use a BSI Sony sensor.

Yes but most viewfinders in these small cameras are modest and hard to use. Most of my pictures are indoors with no EVF. For EVF use I am looking forward to the Nikon DL clip on EVF which is a huge tilt EVF. Like the stellar Oly VF-4 EVF.

JackM: So torn between the flexibility of this camera and the sheer IQ of the Ricoh GR.... augh, what to do! Great article.

The Ricoh GR skin tones of people make people look like grey zombies wih leather skin. Most GR reviews agree that jpegs from the GR are not good in color, that B/W brings the GR good results.

Most ISO over 640 faces the GR produces are super sick looking people.

In contrast, the Canon colors are great.

I own:
Nikon Coolpix A -- if the flash bounced it'd be perfect, APS-C sensor, great colors
Sony RX100III - skin tones are too white, too pale, flash does bounce
Sony RX100IV - still are better for the III
G7X mii - great skin tones, flash bounces
Fuji X70 - super rosy pink baby skin tones, has 28-35-50mm trick, APS-C sensor
I really like the G7X mii now

I see a lot of noise in the samples

Hollywood can do that for 1/100th the cost in virtual. With all the hunger in the world, the cool factor should be ignored and suppressed what is next, Lady Gaga in space with her 50 million dollar condo in tow?

The Rx100III jpegs and Raws are better at high ISO than the IV.

On article Fujifilm X70 Review (364 comments in total)

The review ignores:
Most Fuji users respect the iq of the x70 as similar to the x-t1 and x100t
Most Fuji users know that raw processors treat the pictures without high ISO problems
Most Fuji users appreciate the size advantage of the x70 for social occasions

Ricoh gr has color JPEGs that all reviews say the GR is better for B/W
Ricoh GRs skin tones at high iso are grey ashen zombie look...look it up on google

papillon_65: Fuji should have stuck with the bayer sensor in the original X100, I still have that camera and love it, not a lot needed to bring it up to date and I'm not interested in X trans, a 28mm version with a 16mp sensor would be ideal.

I love the bayer, hated the trans. Lately I see the advantages of the trans, people look younger, less wrinkles, but I agree Fuji should offer all their cameras in both.

marike6: Some shops still have the Coolpix A for $369, a pretty fantastic deal. And since it uses the proven D7000 sensor, IQ is banging. Not a pretty as the X70, but half the price and no IQ / RAW converter issues and they make a dedicated VF for it, unlike the X70. My Ricoh GR III is easily my favorite compact of all time for shooting (on the Greek Islands it performed like a champ). A good 28mm lens that focuses close is a revelation that will improve your photography immeasurably. The Ricoh GR I sells for $550 new on Ebay. It could be that other RAW converters like Dcraw will produce better RAW conversion for the X70, but as a Lightroom users I don't want to change. So I might have to grab one of the last few Coolpix A's or the Ricoh GR I. Thanks guys.

Ricoh colors are horrible jpegs most reviews say that, that the GR is best for landscapes, not people. Oranges and reds are the same. Most high Iso faces on the GR make it look peope like sick zombies.

The GR JPEGs are horrible in color. Reds and oranges are all messed up. Most glowing reviews say it is best for B/W. If you look at GR samples people have a grey zombie skin color. Indoors it focuses really slowly. Nikon A has great JPEGs.

saeba77: i really can't understand why i need this camera or the ricoh?
i can buy the t10 or a6000 or a6300 or xa2 or ecc , mount a prime f2.8 and obtain the same image quality (well may be better) in a body more or less same spec

Ahh the Trans magic. I took some pictures of a 3 month old baby and got incredible compliments, as if my Nikon and Canon and Panasonic products were inferior and this X70's samples were "the best I ever saw" and "the cutest baby in the world". The Trans delivers smooth baby skin pictures. It is the Fuji magic. Dermatologists choose Canon, Vogue chooses Fuji. That is the secret of the magic.

I do not see it as a soft lens. I find it quite sharp, compared to many other cameras. Maybe not a DSLR with an expensive prime.
