Canon PowerShot G5 X Digital Camera

Canon announced their most advanced point-and-shoot digital camera, the 20-megapixel PowerShot G5 X, equipped with a built-in, high-resolution electronic viewfinder (EVF), high-quality optics and large one-inch image sensor. The $800 compact camera comes equipped with built-in Wi-Fi and NFC capability for easy sharing of images and video to social media networks as well as printing to compatible Canon PIXMA or SELPHY printers with the PIXMA Printing Solutions app.

Its one-inch, 20.2 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor delivers optimal performance with an ISO range of 125 – 12,800. The sensor, along with a proprietary DIGIC 6 Image processor, creates Canon’s HS System to provide photographers with vivid and detailed still images and video, even in difficult low-light shooting scenarios.

Providing quality still images and video for social sharing, the stunning 1080p Full HD video (at 24p, 30p, and 60p in MP4 format) and still images captured on these cameras can be transferred after capture to compatible smartphones, tablets, or the new Canon Connect Station CS100 photo and video hub device, via built-in Wi-Fi and NFC capability. Both new models are compatible with Canon’s free Camera Connect App for wireless image transfer and remote operation featuring Live View when using compatible iOS and Android devices.

Canon PowerShot G5 X Digital Camera - Back

Incorporating a bright, built-in high-resolution EVF that allows photographers to more easily compose and take pictures as well as track moving subjects, the high-performance PowerShot G5 X camera also features a bright f/1.8 – f/2.8 4.2x Canon Optical Zoom Lens (focal length range equivalent to 24-100mm). With the combination of a nine-blade iris diaphragm for beautiful background blur effects and an Intelligent Image Stabilization (IS) system that provides virtually shake-free images in a wide variety of shooting conditions, this camera’s optical system enables users to capture the shot as they envisioned it and is ideal for shooting in low-light conditions or when a shallow depth-of-field is preferred for more dramatic, soft backgrounds and beautiful portraits.

The PowerShot G5 X camera’s 2.36-million-dot high-definition OLED electronic viewfinder provides high-quality viewing from edge-to-edge, especially useful when composing an image or shooting in bright sunlight. Additionally, a three-inch, 1.04 million dot touch panel LCD screen provides a bright, clear display that enables one-touch control of many camera settings and features a Vari-Angle design that enables easy viewing from various shooting angles while protecting the screen from inadvertent scratching when the camera is stored.

Housed in a classic black body, the enhanced controls include top-mounted mode and exposure compensation dials, front and rear control dials, and a control ring around the lens, which can all be customized to best suit different shooting styles. The PowerShot G5 X camera also features a built-in flash plus a dedicated hot shoe providing full compatibility with Canon’s powerful range of EX-series Speedlites and related accessories. There is also a 2.5mm mini-jack for compatibility with Canon’s Remote Switch RS-60E3.

The new camera incorporates a broad range of exposure modes from fully automatic to full manual, and the choice of RAW as well as JPEG recording modes for still photos. Additionally, a built-in ND filter offers enhanced exposure control in bright shooting conditions. Plus an enhanced Star Mode provides more precise focusing sure to delight stargazers and amateur astronomers. The “Star Trails” mode is now enhanced to improve the breaks in light between star trails turning star movement into a luminous still image, while the “Star Time-Lapse Movie” mode makes beautiful video clips that show the movement of the stars against a static background of dark space.

The Canon PowerShot G5 X is scheduled to begin shipping in November 2015 for $799.99.
