Testing Two Canon Cameras – a Review

David Lee King - Tue, 2017-05-23 09:30

I’ve had my newest camera for awhile now, so I thought it would be fun to compare it to an older camera of mine.

So here’s a video comparing the video and audio quality of two Canon Powershot point and shoot cameras:

Pretty sure the GX7 won the comparison hands down! But the older SD780 does ok, too.

The point here? You already have a camera that can make video. I’ll guess that you have access to a point and shoot camera, or a DSLR camera, or a camcorder video camera. Or a mobile device.

What’s holding you back from making a video?
