Sensors:- Canon G5X has resolutions of 20.2MP where as Canon G1 X Mark II has the less resolution of 12.8MP.

Canon G5 X has used the high-sensitivity Sony-made 1″ sensor and the same sensor sported inside the RX 100 M III, while Canon G1 X Mark II has utilized a larger Canon made CMOS sensor of 1.5”. keep in mind that Canon G1X mark II sensor is made by Canon.

The 1″ sensor of G5X combined with DIGIC 6 image processor that supports the camera to perform better in low-light conditions with reduced image noise. While the large 1.5″ CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor helps the Canon G1 X Mark II produces noiseless images during the low-light shooting.

Here, Canon G5X has small 1″ sensor and more resolution compare to G1X Mark II but due to the implementation of advanced technology and BSI CMOS Sensor, the G5X manages to gain the similar ISO range comparative to G5X. Both the cameras maintained the similar expanded ISO of 12800. Canon G5X captures 20.2MP files @ 5.9fps while Canon G1 X Mark II captures 12.8MP files @ 5fps.

Low pass filter:- Both the cameras have Low pass filter which eliminates the problem of moiré by blurring what actually reaches the sensor.

Optical Zoom:- Canon G1 X Mark II has more optical zoom of 5x compare to Canon G5 X, which has optical zoom of 4.2x. So due to large optical zoom of Canon G1 X Mark II, it is beneficial for those users who want to capture the far subjects.

Aperture Range:- Canon G5X has the bright aperture range of F1.8-2.8 while Canon G1 X Mark II has the aperture of F2.0-3.9. However the Canon G1X Mark II has large 1.5 inch sensor that will sure give you more depth of field compared to G5X camera by having 1″ sensor.

Image Stabilization:- Both the camera has advance HS system inside it that helps you to compensate the camera shake all the way.

AF System:– Both the cameras G5 X and Canon G1 X Mark II have similar contrast detect AF system, however by the nature of lens and the size of sensor the G5X will do bit faster AF than the Canon G5X camera.

ISO:– Canon G5X has the ISO range of 125-12800 while Canon G1 X Mark II has the ISO of 100-12800. Despite of mimicking the ISO range of Canon G1X Mark II we don’t expect the Canon G5X will give same high ISO out-put as of G1X Mark II.  Not only low-light sensor the camera will also give more dynamic range compared to G5X.

Shutter speed:- As we know the camera with more shutter speed gains more capacity in capturing the fast action subjects. so, looking at specification comparison Canon G1 X Mark II has better shutter speed compare to G5 X. Not only fast shutter speed the G5 X has better continuous shooting speed of 5.9fps compare to Canon G1 X Mark II.

Videos:- Both have common video specification. Canon G1 X Mark II supports Full HD 1080p movie recording at 30 fps in the Internet-friendly MP4 format while G5X offers full HD 1080p video recording at multiple frame rate including 60, 30, and 24 fps.Hence, G5X offers magnificent and superior images compare to G1 X Mark II.

View finder:- Canon G5 X has EVF viewfinder, which provides 100% frame coverage and also supports the users a better experience of live view image during photography and also allows the users to shoot better images in bright conditions without facing any problems.

But viewfinder is absent in Canon G1 X Mark II.

Verdict: Based on specification review we recommend you to buy Canon G1X Mark II camera that feature large 1.5″ sensor and will give you better image quality compared to Canon G5X camera.

As you can see both camera core specification is almost identical.

Both the camera uses

  1. same sensor
  2. Same image processor and
  3. Same Lens

The Canon G5X look similar to Canon G7X expect a Grip and a pentaprism viewfinder type construction. However don’t get confused the Canon added a EVF on th rear side of the camera and a pop-up flash.

Along with the control ring similar to G7X the Canon added a front mode dial button for more customization control.

The large LCD display screen now move all the way you want and you can add external microphone in G5X via mic input.

Verdict: Canon G5X is better than G7X by some marginal features and at the same time we also recommend Canon G16 users to go ahead and finally upgrade their camera with Canon G9X or Canon G1X Mark II.

Sensors:- Both Canon G9 X as well as Canon G5 X has almost same resolutions of 20MP and 20.2MP respectively with the same CMOS sensor size of 1”.

The 1” CMOS sensor with DIGIC 6 image processor used inside  both the cameras to perform better in low-light conditions with the reduction in noise. The G9 X and G5X have maintained the almost similar ISO of 125-12800. Let’s talk about the resolution vs processor speed — Canon G9 X supports to capture 20MP files @6fps where Canon G5X captures 20.2 files @ 5.9fps. (yep almost same since both using identical hardware)

Optical Zoom:- Canon G5 X has more optical zoom (4.2x) compare to Canon G9 X (3x). So due to more optical zoom of Canon G5 X  , the users feel better experience in capturing the far subjects / compositions  without walking towards the object at the same time they can also see the resulting images with more impressive and better quality.

Aperture range:- Canon G5 X has smaller aperture of F1.8-2.8, compared to G9X  F2.0-4.9 aperture. So the small aperture of G5 X gains better depth of field as well as improved zone of sharpness compare to G9X. Canon G5 X will allow to fall more light into the sensor of the camera and in-turn you get better images with less noise and more dynamic range.

Image Stabilization: Both Canon G9 X as well as Canon G5 X has hybrid optical image stabilization which helps to minimize the camera shake during shooting still and video. It also reduces the unwanted hand shake along with various type of camera shake during photography, and supports better photography.

AF System:- Both the cameras G9 X and G5 X have similar contrast detect AF system, the contrast detect system.

ISO:- Both the cameras G9 X and G5 X have similar ISO range of 125-12800. While having the similar ISO range the both the camera will give you almost same images, but wait… the G5X offers better and bright lens and it will sure change the test results of the sensor.

Shutter speed:- As we know more the shutter speed, more the camera will have the capability to capture the fast action subjects. But here both the cameras G9 X and G5 X have similar shutter speed so both have the similar capacity to capture the moving subjects .

Top Continuous Shooting Speed:- Canon G9X has fast continuous speed of 6fps compare to G5X with 5.9fps. Hence, both the cameras have negligible difference in Top Continuous Shooting Speed. So both will gave the similar result during capturing fast action objects such as running train or flying birds.

Videos:- Canon G9 X as well as G5 X supports Full HD video recording at 60, 30 and 24fps also the movies are saved in the MP4 format.

View finder:- Canon G5 X has EVF viewfinder, which provides 100% frame coverage and supports the users to feel the better experience of live view image during photography and also allows the users to shoot better images in bright conditions comfortably. But view finder is absent in G9X.

Verdict: The Canon G5X will going to give you better image quality since the camera features better lens that will allow bit more light to pass through it, however the core specification of both the camera is almost same.
