Compact digital cameras have become popular over the past few years. They offer good value for money and compact size. As such, many consumers are turning to these new cameras in order to capture special moments. In this article, we take a look at some of the latest models, including the Fujifilm X100V and the Canon PowerShot G7X Mark II. We’ll also explore how to take great pictures with each model.
Canon PowerShot G7X Mark II
The Canon PowerShot G7X Mark II compact digital camera has been updated with the latest DIGIC 7 image processor. This image processor ensures excellent sharpness, color accuracy, and minimum picture noise. It also improves subject tracking and image stabilization.
Canon PowerShot G7X Mark II has a powerful f/1.8-2.8 24-100 mm optical zoom lens that is equivalent to a 35 mm camera. This wide zoom range helps you take beautiful photos even in low-light conditions.
Canon’s DIGIC 7 Image Processor provides improved subject tracking and image stabilization. This technology is ideal for taking sharp pictures of fast-moving subjects. A large 1.0-inch 20.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor ensures high quality image capture.
A 3-inch adjustable LCD display allows you to quickly check exposure compensation, white balance, and other settings. There are a variety of shooting modes including standard, aperture priority, manual, and full manual. Unlike many other digital cameras, you can also choose to use RAW images. These files offer more detail than the JPEGs.
Panasonic LUMIX G100
The Panasonic LUMIX G100 is a compact digital camera that offers a lot of useful features. It’s also an extremely competitive rival to the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III and Sony ZV-1. In addition to its compact design, it offers a high-resolution electronic viewfinder and a host of other vlogging-oriented features.
The G100’s electronic viewfinder is located at the center of its top plate. It’s big enough to allow you to make accurate exposure adjustments while shooting. This is the first mirrorless camera to offer an integrated OZO Audio by Nokia sound system.
Another cool feature is the frame marker, which displays framing guides for different aspect ratios. For example, it shows you how to frame an image in the 9:16 or even 1:1 ratios.
It’s also got a 5-axis HYBRID I.S., which is an electronic image stabilization system, as well as a lens-only I.S. when shooting stills.
Sony RX1 RII
The Sony RX1R II is a full-frame compact camera with a lot of megapixels. It’s also a great performer with impressive low-light capabilities. If you’re looking for a camera that can be easily carried around, the Sony RX1R II is an ideal choice.
It’s small and light, and has a high-quality ZEISS lens. It also has a slick, back-illuminated LCD screen that works quickly in low-light situations.
The AF system in the RX1R II is a good one. It features a 399-point focal plane phase-detection system, and has a Fast Hybrid AF system that covers half the sensor. These AF systems provide excellent focusing in both bright and dark conditions.
For a camera of this size, it’s nice that Sony has included an electronic viewfinder. That’s especially helpful for enthusiast photographers. However, you do need to pull the viewfinder out to use it.
Other notable features include the ability to record in MPEG-4 and AVCHD. And it’s the first camera to feature a variable optical low-pass filter.
Fujifilm’s X100V is an interesting piece of kit. It’s a mirrorless camera designed for street photographers who want to take their work on the go.
The X100V is a compact and retro styled camera that’s made of aluminum. It features a satin finish on the body. At 5.0 x 2.9 x 2.1 inches (127 x 75 x 53 mm), the camera weighs just 478 grams.
The X100V has an optical viewfinder and an electronic viewfinder. These two functions combine to give you a real time image when you make a picture. This is useful when you’re shooting in low light.
The X100V uses a hybrid autofocus system. This means that phase detection autofocus pixels are placed across the sensor to enhance tracking functionality. There are four25 phase-detection AF points. However, the X100V’s autofocus isn’t as strong in dark conditions as other cameras.
When it comes to focusing, the Fujifilm X100V can be set to focus from -6EV down to -5EV. Its autofocus system is responsive and fast.
