G7X and G7X Mark II

The variable F1.8-F2-8 maximum aperture, combined with the 1-inch sensor, meant that even at the telephoto end of the focal range, we were able to use it to isolate a subject with some background blur. Showing it’s not your typical small camera, this also meant the G7X II didn’t need to use the slow shutter speeds that are all too often required by a compact shooting when zoomed in.
