In this article, we will be taking a look at what we feel are the best tripods for Canon G7X mark ii cameras currently available on the market. There is no denying that the G7X and its various variants are hugely popular cameras. Due to this we always see a large number of G7X owners reaching out each month for advice on what accessories they should be picking up and today it is the turn of the trusty tripod. No matter the variant of G7X camera that you own, both of the tripods on this list will fit them without issue due to all G7X units having the same tripod mount connector.
Although there are a number of tripods out there that cost more than the two we have settled on, we don’t feel like spending almost twice as much for your tripod is worth the additional ten to fifteen percent of additional functionality so would always recommend either of these two tripods over the more expensive ones from brands like Manfrotto. Additionally, both of these tripods have managed to earn themselves excellent reputations in a short period of time in a very crowded and tough market.
We would also like to point out that the various G7X users who simply use their camera for vlogging would probably be better off with some kind of mini tripod from the Joby Gorillapod range (Click here to check for product prices and availability). We also recently published a dedicated article on what Joby Gorillapods are ideal for use with your G7X that you may find helpful.
The Zomei Q555 Tripod
It is based around the standard ball head tripod design that is very easy to use even if you have never used a tripod before. Additionally, the Q555 comes with a maximum payload of 17.6 pounds meaning that it can easily support the weight of your G7X that comes in at around 0.66 pounds with plenty of payload weight to spare for other accessories.
Tripods have a ton of uses and although the majority of them are based around helping to improve your overall image quality by providing stabilization like in the image above, the Q555 is also light enough for you to hold it in your hand with your G7X mounted on it while vlogging too. This can help offer higher quality footage with less jittering than if you were just holding your camera in your hand without the tripod attached.
Additionally, the quick release plate on the Q555 allows you to quickly mount and unmount your G7X from the tripod when needed. This allows you to go from using the tripod to take nice stable video footage or photographs to releasing the quick release plate to quickly unmount the camera and vlog with it.
All in all, we feel that the Q555 will make an excellent addition to your collection of camera accessories for your Canon G7X. Not only is the tripod very budget friendly but it offers a ton of functionality for its price point in the market while also having an excellent reputation amongst the community and we would highly recommend you check it out.

The Zomei Z818 Tripod
In reality, you would probably only need to pick up a full-sized tripod if you are using additional cameras that are heavier or have heavy lenses on them in addition to using your G7X when required. This is due to the very small and lightweight Gorillapod range or the travel tripods being able to offer similar image quality for a G7X with a much lower price tag, weight, and size.
All in all, for the majority of G7X users, don’t need a full sizes tripod as it will probably just be a waste of money if that is your only camera. If you are dead set on picking up a full-sized tripod for use with additional cameras that you will be getting in the future then we would recommend that you consider adding a Zomei Z818 tripod to your camera accessories.
