The Canon Powershot G5 X is a compact camera that is capable of delivering superb image quality. Its 1.0-type, 20.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor can capture accurate details with the help of its DIGIC 6 processor. Setting the view closer to the subject is also possible with its 24 mm, 4.2x optical zoom lens which is capable of 0.12 seconds autofocus and 31-point AF Frames. Combine that with its 5.9 fps sustained continuous shooting and you can take more pictures faster. If you wish to take videos, this camera captures Full HD 60p Movies too. The G5 X also features an optical image stabilizer and large electronic viewfinder. This Canon compact camera is also equipped with a vari-angle touchscreen LCD and lens control ring. Sharing your images to smartphones and the Internet is also possible with its Near Field Communication connectivity and built-in Wi-Fi.

Product Features in Detail

1.0-type, 20.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor

The Canon Powershot G5 X can save either JPEG or RAW images at a maximum of 20.2 megapixels. The CMOS sensor also allows more light to be used in capturing an image. This translates to more accurate details from the subject to the photo.

DIGIC 6 Processor

The G5 X's DIGIC 6 Processor improves the camera's light sensitivity. This results in higher resolution images with less noise when shooting in dark conditions. It also enhances the Powershot G5 X's performance particularly in high-speed shooting. 

24mm, 4.2x Optical Zoom Lens

The lens' 24 mm diameter gives way for a wider viewable angle. Meanwhile, its 4.2x magnification has a focal length equivalent of 8.8 - 36.8 mm (24-100 mm equivalent on 35 mm). The lens also has a maximum f/number of f/1.8-2.8 and its 9-blade aperture is perfect for stunning background blur.

31-point AF Frames

With more points, you can have better resolution for every focus point in the frame. Having more AF points is also in tracking subjects for motion images such as in sports and wildlife photography.

Captures Full HD 60p Movies

With the G5 X, you have the capability to record memories for a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 at a maximum frame rate of 59.94 fps. You can also play the videos on wider screen resolutions without compromising quality. This video function is also perfect for those who are into video blogging.

Optical Image Stabilizer

The G5 X has a three-stop Intelligent Image Stabilizer with 5-axis Advanced Dynamic IS to reduce shaking and blur when taking stills and videos. The result: clear shots even without a tripod or during low light situations.

Large Electronic Viewfinder

Its built-in 2.36 Million pixel electronic viewfinder is positioned perpendicular to the optical axis which gives the photographer a better view on frame and a natural shooting experience.

Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD

The 7.5 cm (3") touch screen is the perfect aid for shooting self-portraits and low angles, and bird's eye view images. And since the LCD is touch screen, you can use it to instantly select AF points, trigger it as a touch shutter, or review images by swiping.

Lens Control Ring

You can adjust the aperture of the Canon Powershot G5 X with this feature to get the ideal amount of light that you need for each shot.

Near Field Communication Connectivity

With NFC connection, you can instantly save your images from the camera to a smartphone or table device.

Built-In Wi-Fi

Instantly share your images on the Internet, particularly in social media platforms, by accessing the G5 X's Wi-Fi connection. Also, the images can be easily stored to cloud services like Google Drive and Flickr with its Image Sync option.

Enhanced Star Mode and Handheld HDR Function

This allows you to record detailed photos and videos at night.

Complete Manual Control

Aside from the Autofocus, the Powershot G5 X is perfect for those who want to customize the effects in every picture through manual photography. You have the liberty to adjust the aperture and zoom 

Auto ND Filter

This filter allows you to capture beautiful light trails at night and amazing bokeh in bright conditions.

14-Bit RAW File Support

With this type of file support, you can enhance photo editing options via Canon's Digital Photo Professional software.

Multiple Charging Options

The Canon Powershot G5 X can be charged with typical USB smartphone chargers, through a PC via USB cable, or through the provided external battery charger
