Canon Powershot G5 X
What we think
It's good to see viewfinders returning to compact cameras – it makes composing images in bright light much easier. The G5 X is an excellent compact camera for anyone looking for a first 'serious' camera or a back-up to an SLR or CSC, but it's not one that you can slip in your jeans pocket.
