The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II has a 20.2MP 1-inch BSI-CMOS sensor paired with Canon's latest DIGIC-7 image processor and offers an ISO range of 125-12800 which means it does well in low light conditions so you aren't always in need of the flash which makes images flat often. The lens has a fast maximum aperture range of F1.8-2.8 and an equivalent focal range of 24-100mm. With a 9-blade curved aperture diagram as well as an ND filter. A compact metal body with a control dial around the lens, a dedicated exposure comp dial on the top, and the usual rear dial on the rear making the controls spread out some. Packed with a 4.2x optical zoom which is definitely ample for something this compact, taking care of any specifically zoomed shots you may want to take.
This Canon also features Wi-Fi, which lets you quickly send photos from your camera to your phone for posting on social media. Your phone also doubles as a remote control which makes group photos easier to capture with everyone in the frame! The battery time on this camera is a little less with it being able to shoot an average of 265 shots on a single charge but the battery itself isn't too costly or large so you can carry a spare with you. In the point & shoot category the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II is on top of the ladder, even without your DSLR on you the advanced settings will cover most of your needs!
