Hey, haven’t I seen this cam­era be­fore? Yes and no. The Canon Pow­erShot G9 X II is a re­freshed ver­sion of the break­through 2015 model and shares much of its clas­sic good looks. But there are some de­cent im­prove­ments here to tempt any smart­phone snap­per look­ing to up­grade their pho­tog­ra­phy game. I want to make stacks of cash on In­sta­gram. Can this cam­era help? Dude, it’s a com­pact cam­era. You’re on your own with the mon­etis­ing thing, but this souped-up Canon can cer­tainly help you take gor­geous pho­tos and Full HD video to pop­u­late your ac­count. The G9 X II has many juicy fea­tures, in­clud­ing a large 1.0-type CMOS sen­sor and wide-aper­ture lens for nail­ing low-light shots with­out blur, plus a 3x op­ti­cal zoom and Canon’s pow­er­ful Digic 7 image pro­ces­sor. Nice. What else is good? It has Wi-Fi, Dy­namic NFC and Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity, so you can trans­fer im­ages from the cam­era to your smart­phone, then tweak the im­ages in your favourite fil­ter apps be­fore shar­ing the re­sults on so­cial media. And what about modes and stuff? You’re in luck there too be­cause the G9 X II has plenty of cre­ative modes for cap­tur­ing in­ter­est­ing shots – tin­ker with Time-lapse, a Water Paint­ing ef­fect or Hand­held Night Scene for af­ter-dark im­agery. Sounds good. When’s it com­ing out? The Canon Pow­erShot G9 X II is on sale now. Get snap­ping!
