Asian Diver tested the PowerShot G7 X Mark II at Sisters’ Island, Singapore, and, although shooting in brackish conditions, found that the camera focused well on subjects with good contrast. The new DIGIC 7 image processor paid dividends with improved autofocus tracking, enhanced image stabilisation and superb image clarity even when we shot with a higher ISO. The zoom lens afforded impressive flexibility, with the ability to pull back for bigger subjects, and use the telephoto portion to maintain distance for skittish subjects like blennies.

A useful feature was the ability to transfer the images via Wi-Fi or NFC without having to open the housing, minimising any possible risk of flooding.
