Just purchased the G7X Mark II.
When I am in the basic Video mode, and take a photo - this is a function of the camera to be able to do this - the image I get doesn't have the same field of view that I had in the view screen. The photographed image is zoomed out (greater field of view) than that of the view screen before shooting this shot.
You may ask why I am shooting in Video mode - I want to be able to shoot both video and photos from the same mode. In addition, and this is a big one - I can switch to macro in Video mode, where this functionality is not available in the Auto Mode.
Thanks in advance!

Can you tell us the actual pixel dimensions?
As a SWAG, I would say that the image is full resolution, while the video is reduced resolution. You might have to set the camera to record the same FOV as the video, i.e., 16:9.

In video mode recording - auto is the default mode of recording. At playback of still photo press disp and you will see the info of the photo which is the auto mode set up. I suppose that match the aspect ratio of video recording and auto settings. If the video is taken with aspect ratio of 16:9, the still photo taken in default mode is large size and 4:3 ratio, Make sense?

Yep, this is correcty and both of the above posts make sense.
I am a little bummed with the settings on this camera for photos in this case. I will probably find myself shooting in custom mode, which I suppose will help me to get to know the camera a bit better in the long run.
Thanks to you both
