Camera Videos

The Canon G7X is an overpriced digital still camera that get poor reviews for its video performance. Why? Because it’s not designed to do video. Yes, technically it can make a video, but technically you can drive in a nail with a frying pan. That doesn’t make a frying pan a suitable replacement for a hammer. 

Get a camcorder which, by the way, can also be used to take still photographs, too. For about $100 more than the price of a G7X, you can get a 4K camcorder which will be enormously better for video than any digital camera at any price. 

I’ve watched a lot of videos on comparing a digital camera to a camcorder, and they all say the same thing: Camcorders are superior to digital cameras, and the only reason to buy a digital camera over a camcorder is for that shallow depth-of-field look that you can get from digital cameras that have at least an APS-C or full-frame sized sensor. The G7X has a much smaller sensor which cannot produce that kind of look. Therefore, there’s literally no reason to buy a G7X over a camcorder.
