Powered to Inspire
The PowerShot G7 X is a premium high-performance camera that puts exciting and impressive capabilities in a sophisticated, compact package. It starts with the sensor: a large and light-grabbing 1.0-inch, 20.2 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor powered by Canon’s latest generation DIGIC 6 Image Processor for beautifully rendered low-light photography up to ISO 12800. The IS lens is a f/1.8 (W) – f/2.8 (T) that puts more in your frame while staying bright to the maximum 4.2x Optical Zoom (24mm–100mm), with a 9-blade circular aperture diaphragm for artistic background blur, and a minimum focus range of just 5cm for precise macro shooting. Wi-Fi®**- and NFC-enabled***, the PowerShot G7 X is selfie-ready with a high-resolution multi-angle capacitive 3.0-inch touch panel LCD. Shooting is a joy with High-Speed AF (0.14 sec.), 31 AF points, full-resolution continuous shooting up to 6.5 fps and 1080p/60p HD video. Designed to provide stellar images, the PowerShot G7 X is a compact digital camera powered to inspire your most impressive photography. And it delivers.
1″ Type CMOS Sensor
Similar to the sensors in many EOS digital SLR cameras, including a 3:2 aspect ratio, the PowerShot G7 X’s sensor has bigger individual cells, capturing more light at the pixel level. This sensor helps produce more dramatic images with better detail, even at higher ISOs, utilizing an improved dynamic range while reducing noise and distortion.
Canon 24-100mm f/1.8 – 2.8 Lens
The remarkable new lens on the PowerShot G7 X camera takes full advantage of the camera’s large sensor, giving you photography a wide range of expression. It has a bright aperture value of f/1.8 at the wide angle and f/2.8 when fully zoomed to a factor of 4.2x (24mm-100mm). Capture macro shots from as close as 5cm (telephoto at 40cm).
Superb Image Processing
A high signal-to-noise ratio delivers minimal noise and distortion with breathtaking dynamic range, particularly notable in bright areas. And photography enthusiasts will appreciate the changes in image processing for the PowerShot G7 X, which include target exposure value and contrast characteristics for highlights. Dynamic range in bright areas is expanded with gradation attributes that are similar to EOS. Also, by changing the exposure index standard from SOS to REI, it is possible to shoot at almost the same brightness with the same Av, Tv, and ISO settings as EOS.
