Our Review

We took the Canon G7X Mark II in the Fantasea Line FG7XII A M16 underwater housing for some test dives in Gardens of the Queen, Cuba as well as in Cozumel, to see how it manages itself and check out all the terrific functions of the camera and also the housing. This testimonial includes example images, tests, wide angle and macro results as well as some videos.

The G7X Mark II is the mighty successor for the popular G7X. Canon have actually enhanced their leading compact camera in nearly every aspect, providing the existing champ– the RX100 Mark V, an excellent battle. At just US$ 679 retail, the Canon G7XII ranks high among high end compacts as well as provides one of the best value cameras for the avid photographers as well as specifically the underwater digital photographer.

Fantasea are currently popular in the sector, providing dependable, economical, top quality housings for the leading compacts in the marketplace. Their team puts their hearts and also spirits into every housing, put it with extensive testing and also quality control, up until it is perfect.

The FG7XII was developed after the successful FG7X as well as FG16 housings which preceded it, with the much welcomed addition of a 67mm thread on the front of the port, increasing your alternatives for wet lenses and also allowing both the easy snap-on accessories and also the screw-on 67mm accessories.

I took the digital camera for a spin in Gardens of the Queen, Cuba, as well as numerous dives in Cozumel, Mexico.

The camera performed wonderfully. Focusing was very quickly, photo quality was superb as well as the camera is extremely user friendly, much like most Canon compacts.

The integrated in pop-up flash is a bit slow to recycle, so I would recommend giving up on TTL, setting the pop-up flash on guidebook with the lowest possible setup, after that utilizing the external flash on Handbook too. This would certainly be the most effective method shoot to constantly with a flash.

The controls on the housing were extremely user-friendly, and also plainly noted so you don’t have to remember anything before hand. All switches and also dials worked flawlessly at any depth I tried it. I also handed it around to a couple of scuba divers on our team, that used an underwater cam for the very first time in their life, and they found it to be very user-friendly! It just called for 5 minutes of fundamental descriptions and also they were ready to fire.

The battery life on the Canon G7XII is quite pleasing, lasting 2 dives quickly. I do recommend obtaining a spare battery anyway so you have it all set for the 3rd as well as 4th dive of the day.

The cam + housing on their own are somewhat positive, so make sure you safeguard it with the lanyard so it will not turn up to the surface area. Once you include a tray, arms, illumination and damp lenses, the rig ends up being unfavorable. Depending upon your arrangement, you might wish to add float devices to make it neutral once again.

The Fantasea FG7XII housing highlights include:

Full access to all important cam controls & features with clearly marked switches
Depth ranked to 60 meters/ 200 feet (despite the fact that they examine it to 80m/ 270ft).
