Three words to describe this point-and-shoot camera: small, powerful, and versatile. The 24–100mm zoom lens makes this the perfect camera for general purposes such as traveling and portraits (set the range to 80–90mm). Other specs that qualify this as a superb camera are its impressive low-light performance, convenient touchscreen, plenty of manual/auto modes, solid image stabilization system, fast image processor, and a one-inch sensor for more vivid and detailed images.
Promising review: "I wish I could give this awesome camera a higher rating than five stars. It really is one of the absolute best point-and-shoot cameras I have ever owned. I'm only an amateur photographer but I won't settle for less than the best. I've had this G7X for a couple of months now and I'm so happy with it that I'd strongly recommend it to anyone looking for a really good point-and-shoot camera with features that you usually only see on a full-size DSLR. If you need a camera with image stabilization, excellent autofocus, fast FPS, the ability to shoot in the raw format, beautiful touchscreen, and great built-in wireless system — this is by far the best choice for a point-and-shoot!" —terryd75
