Click here to read our Canon G9X Mark II Field Test A couple of years ago, Canon released the compact, pocketable Canon G9X. Its successor, the Canon G9X Mark II, remains very small and uses the same 20.2-megapixel 1-inch-type sensor.

As such, Benro's filter offerings are about to get a significant boost thanks to the V library of offerings. The MAC Group characterized the move as one that is... (read more) [...]
