CameraCreativ recommends the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VI.

Our rating of the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mk. II

Canon G7X Mark II should appeal to more discriminating amateurs who value the relatively large 1" sensor and the nice 4x zoom with an aperture range from F1.8 to F2.8 at the long end. The camera has a decent feature set with a well thought-out range of manual controls including a dedicated wheel for exposure compensation. The articulated touchscreen is a big plus. Very fast and responsive with an image frequency of up to eight photos per second. Rather mediocre battery life with less than 250 shots per charge. A spare battery (NB-13L) is recommended.
