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.
