  1. I have to comment the g7x beat the iphone hands down. The g7x also has f1.8 giving more of a bokeh effect hence the "less sharp edges". You should have really put the g7x on manual mode to as close as the specs as the iphone has out of the box as possible. Either way – both on auto settings – the g7x kills the iphone for quality. Unfortunately there were many flaws in this review which showed a lack luster knowledge on simple stuff. The comments below agree – hopefully you take this as constructive criticism.

  2. What a load of crap. Do this test 10 times and you'll get 10 different results. To each his own I suppose. My G7X (heck mark 1 not 2) beats my iPhone 6 every time for photo quality and video results. 4K on iPhone is crap.

  3. Some unique perspective given here by the Hunter Report. Let's not forget that the G7XmkII is built for photos and with it's 1" sensor, it blows the iPhone or any other smartphone away. If you use a G7XmkII or RX100 series and the like, you take photography more seriously. You are an enthusiast. No camera will ever beat any smartphone for portability and convenience. Smartphones have come a long way. They do an excellent job. Until they can be as customizable as advanced compacts like the G7XmkII with larger sensors, they can't match the rich detail in the images nor the video. Advanced compacts are very customizable. In this video by The Hunter Report, it's obvious that no time was taken to adjust settings to optimize the scene requirements. If you take video a little more seriously and use an advanced compact, that's what you do. You take the time to optimize so the results will be stellar. I love my iPhone 7 plus. It's so convenient and versatile. No way it can beat the G7XmkII for imagery of any kind. A 1/2.3" 12 MP sensor can never beat a BSI 1" 20 MP sensor. The physics does not allow it. Cheers.

  4. I understand the dislikes in this video.

    I have a d3200 and iPhone 6s, and both are not good enough to take video or photos at low light. I've been doing hours of research wondering if 1080p is worth going back to knowing my iPhone is 4K, and the answer is yes

    Here's why, go to other videos comparing image quality and it's more important to get the best quality image over the highest rated resolution stats.

    I've been going over the rx100 iv, lx100, g7, and the g7x mark ii has had the best images.

    90 percent of the market is on 1080p cell phones, so ill stick with the g7x until the gh5 comes out

  5. HDR is high dynamic range and is where an image is taken at different exposures and then the pictures are merged to give broader dynamic range. Some cameras do have HDR video, eg Canon 80D. You are right that G7X II does not have HDR video though.

  6. i think you had to insist that iphone maybe better that the canon for vloging, not to take still images. the canon is a camera far more versatile than the iphone. iphone is ok for snapshots and videos , the canon is more a tool for photographers who know how to choose a shutter speed, an aperture, to make long exposures on tripod…there is one billion picturesyou can take with the canon you ll never do with an iphone.

  7. If you use an enthusiast camera on auto mode it will produce less.
    if you actually use aperture priority and exposure compensation on the selfie test to increase light the canon will stomp the iphone.
    The iphone has very few tricks, the canon is versatile and ten times more adaptable when used right.
    The canon shoots raw which allow you to reduce highlights and recover shadows.
    you showed none of that.

  8. I think this video is really misleading and needs more field testing. The colour representation on the G7X is way better in most situations and you should find the exposure settings to be considerably better. I am not sure how you got the opposite result in the video. Maybe try again switching on HDR in the video mode. Did you switch this to manual mode by accident? The zoom in on the editor is an odd result as the footage is clearly sharper on the G7X before the zoom. I am wondering whether you are zooming in on a downgraded quality version in the editor? I have the iphone 6s and G7X II and I would say for regularly making videos the G7X is a lot more versatile and generally has better results. As for 4K you should try upresing the 1080p footage to 4K on the G7X – 4K on small sensors is normally a con due to the low bit rates involved compared to pro recording..
