The G5 X II has a completely different form factor than the first model dropping its weight down to 12 ounces (340 grams) with battery and memory card, and is now similar looking to the G7 X series of compact point-and-shoots with a tilting screen, pop-up EVF, and main exposure dial on the front.
This EVF is 0.39 inches, has a 2.36 million dot resolution with 120 fps refresh rate, and features a “Smooth Priority” option. The eye sensor automatically switches between EVF and rear LCD monitor. The 3-inch, 1.04 million dot LCD monitor can tilt 180 degrees up and 45 degrees down and has touch and drag AF capability.
The 5x optical zoom lens is a 35mm equivalent 24-120mm f/1.8-2.8 and has a minimum focusing distance of 2 inches (5 centimeters) at the wide end and 7.9 inches (20 centimeters) and the telephoto end.
Full HD 120p video can be recorded with the G5 X II.
