As a travel writer and pho­tog­ra­pher who’s con­stantly on the move, I need a cam­era that is light and flex­i­ble – small enough to fit in a back­pack. Of course, one does not want to trade im­age qual­ity for ef­fi­ciency, and the Canon Pow­er­shot G7 X Mark II is sur­pris­ing in its abil­ity to cap­ture ex­cel­lent im­ages across a wide range of ISOS. Easy to use, and faster than its pre­de­ces­sor, it is ideal as a light­weight travel com­pan­ion, or as a sec­ondary cam­era.

With a class-lead­ing sen­sor and lens, the Mark II is the first cam­era in Canon’s Pre­mium Com­pact range to use the new DIGIC 7 im­age pro­ces­sor to sup­port sev­eral new per­for­mance im­prove­ments – from bet­ter aut­o­fo­cus track­ing to en­hanced im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion. The startup is in­cred­i­bly quick, and the cam­era boasts con­tin­u­ous high­speed shoot­ing up to 8fps.

The zoom lens af­fords im­pres­sive flex­i­bil­ity, and ‘Dual Sens­ing’ im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion uses data from the im­age sen­sor (in ad­di­tion to gyro-scop­ing sen­sors) to re­duce the blur caused by cam­era shake. The new pan­ning mode is in­tended to ad­just the shut­ter speed to en­sure that your mov­ing sub­ject is ef­fec­tively ‘frozen’.

The cam­era is also ex­tremely flex­i­ble in re­gards to a va­ri­ety of shoot­ing styles and sub­jects, from sharp and vi­brant cap­tures of mov­ing sub­jects in nat­u­ral light, to lit­tle noise when shoot­ing in low-light con­di­tions. The Canon Pow­er­shot G7X Mark II comes highly rec­om­mended.

This cat­e­gory takes in por­traits and per­sons in Asia, re­flect­ing one of Asia’s great­est of­fer­ings, the warmth and beauty of its peo­ple. One of the most im­por­tant com­po­nents of ASIAN Ge­o­graphic is con­ser­va­tion. In homage to this, this cat­e­gory high­lights some of the most rel­e­vant con­ser­va­tion is­sues in the re­gion. Pho­tos must be taken within Asia. From the most iconic Asian buildings to the most dis­tinc­tive of Na­ture’s ar­chi­tec­ture, the cat­e­gory wel­comes the best look at Asia’s struc­tural de­signs, man­made or oth­er­wise. Some of the world’s most ex­tra­or­di­nary wildlife ex­ists in Asia, top­side and un­der­wa­ter. This cat­e­gory show­cases the best im­ages of the re­gion’s in­cred­i­ble and di­verse in­hab­i­tants. No mat­ter where you’re from in the world, you are el­i­gi­ble to en­ter in this cat­e­gory if: • You are be­low 21 on date of sub­mis­sion ( proof of age is manda­tory with sub­mis­sions) • Pho­tos are of Asia ( see UN Geoscheme of Asia re­gion)
