I believe this is the smallest, lightest 1 inch sensor compact on the market. I think it's a strong price for a relatively recent 2017 model.

Switch to 'sold and dispatched by Amazon' on the sellers list to get £319.99 price. A further £20 is deducted at checkout due to an Amazon promotion on the GX9 mark ii.

amazon.co.uk/gp/…U9X

Price only available on the silver model. Black costs more.

Currently out of stock, but you can lock in your order for delivery in 2-4 weeks.

Thanks for taking the time to share your first deal @Mike_HUKD , I've added a link to the promotion in the opening post
I have the original G9 though I havent used it for at least a year maybe 2, my phone is used these days but I am now thinking of going back to an SLR as I miss my photography.

Sitting with my popcorn watching this, my deal went cold at £224 after Xmas. Admittedly eglobal Central, however I am happy with my purchase

cute little thing but imo this is more a case of a camera to compare to a phone than the superzooms you like to whine in
its new ... but in terms of image quality its pretty much identical to the 1st gen rx100 from 2012
probably quicker to use in operation due to improved processing though as well as extra connection doodah etc

heat added, good deal - just know what you are getting/needing as always

This one seems to be selling itself on being the smallest with a 1 inch sensor - is it significantly smaller than the competition, or the sort of difference you wont notice unless you actually measure it?

It's really small. Jeans or front shirt pocket kinda small.
is it better than iPhone X camera or it will be a redundant item with a good smartphone camera

I like the idea of it - I have a Fuji XE-1 that I bought as a smaller alternative to a DSLR, and its great, but still a bit big to carry casually.

From what I've read (I'm no expert), this should be superior to the mark 1, but inferior to the mark 3.

It's the same sensor and processor as the well liked GX7 ii, but the lens on the GX9 ii isn't as good in low light. Trade off for size I guess.

The RX100 mark I is available at 239 at the moment via UKcamerastore (using the 50 sony cashback), but feels like it's a bit to old at this stage.

All this said, in the 2-4 week delivery wait on this it's perfectly possible I pivot to the a6000

One day maybe, but it will be a long time before mid-range smart phones have anything near a 1 inch sensor - the physics might even make it impossible, depending on how thick the phone is.

yeah its a great site

its loads smaller ... but for being trouser pocketable thats going to depend heavily on the trousers
shirt pocketable - wouldn't trust anything there
jacket pocketable - have had a camera the size of your fuji in a suit but i guess depends on the jacket and if even wearing one

tbh unless i was walking about with it in my hand all the time, id want it in a small case so as not to put pressure on the lens cap mechanism thingy nor get dust near it

No it was when the ebay 20% code was live and I think everyone was sick of seeing deals posted using it. Still I'm happy with mine, I invested as I downgraded my phone and wanted a decent camera to take pics of the family. Links up well to the app and downloads into my gallery to share

Wow that's a shame, great price, although some folks don't like the perceived risk.

tbf it sounds like what always happens - someone finds something on ebay.then posts it with 20% off
people react by voting cold
224 would start at 280 before the code... right now the camera is 289 on eglobal so the deal was the code not the camera
Just held the GX9 ii, the GX7 ii, the rx100 i and the rx100 iii in hand in Currys.

Observation 1 - GX9 ii really is small compared to the others. It's the only one you'd pocket without a jacket. In the well lit store environment it was easy to use, as good as the others, and the build quality feels superior to the rx100 mark i. Overall based on current prices, I'd stick with this one personally after handling it.

Observation 2 - if you're willing to sacrifice on size, the A5100 and the A6000 put the others above to shame. The A5100 really isn't that much bigger than the GX7 ii, and it's cheaper. Think carefully about whether you need pocket size or not.
I own the G7X ii, and it is an absolutely fantastic camera. It replaced my Nikon D5200, as I wanted something smaller, and easier to whip out and shoot with (boom boom). Got an iPhone X as well (as it was mentioned above) and as much a i love the thing, it’s no comparison to a dedicated camera. The G9X ii is a great little camera for the price, and I love the brown on silver colour option personally.But, If you have the extra cash, I would plump for the G7Xii over the G9X ii every time for its quality and size balance. I paid £384 for my G7Xii, for those considering. Heat OP.

I'm guessing you have an iPhone X or are considering one which is why you're asking. The iPhone X doesn't even have the best smartphone camera. It does have a very decent camera for a phone. However dedicated cameras can easily thrash the pants off any smartphone. Smartphones are getting better and you can take great photos. Dedicated is where you need to be looking for best photographic quality though.

Totally agree with this.

Just about any dedicated or phone camera can take a good picture in bright light these days, especially if you are the right distance away from the subject, but a cheap phone lens can't compete with a proper optical zoom on a dedicated camera, and in lower amounts of light the larger sensor of a proper dedicated camera will make a huge difference to image quality.

That extra quality will be far less noticeable to you if you are only going to view pics on a standard Full HD TV or PC screen, but if you ever want to print any pictures out, or display on a full 4K screen, you will instantly see the difference with the dedicated camera.

If you do stay with a phone camera, take care to keep the lens protected. Too many people just keep a their phone in their pocket or bag with an unprotected lens, and then wonder why the pictures are crap after 6 months of it getting scratched and battered!
