Canon G9X selected as Dpreview.com camera of the year. It’s really a big surprise that 1″ sensor trend setter RX100 series is out of this competition and Canon G9X won the award.
Why Canon G9X won the award?, well the Canon G9X camera is more compact than RX100 series cameras (smallest of all) and at a price of $429 only your also get touch display for easy navigation [Sony Rx100 II available at $469 without touch screen]. Also keep in mind that Canon G9X ( $429 at Amazon.com) uses sensor of Sony RX100 M III camera ( Sony RX100 M III cost $698)
