Sensor- Though X70 maintains low resolution (16mp) than G7 X II (21mp) but sensor size of X70 is twice the larger than G7 X II. X70(APS-C sized X-Trans CMOS sensor) whereas G7 X II (1.0-inch CMOS sensor) that promises us edge to edge sharpness in the images. As well as the X-Trans CMOS II sensor integrated in X70 provides great control over moiré and false colors with the X-Trans color filter and at the same moment you also get broad dynamic range and cleaner images in a lowlight environment.
Optical Zoom- G7 X II provides 4.2x optical zoom to help achieve high image quality and high magnification even in lowlight conditions throughout the frame. On the other hand no optical zoom facility is provided by X70.
Image stabilization– The users of G7 X II can get beautiful background blur because the camera utilizes the optical image stabilization technology that helps in camera shake problem as well as provide great optical performance. But no image stabilization technology has been engineered in X70.
