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.
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
