The Canon PowerShot G5x is an advanced compact camera featuring a large image sensor and fast zoom lens. A 20.2 Megapixel 1" High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor forms the Canon HS SYSTEM for enhanced low-light capabilities, fast performance and full HD 1080p/60 video recording. Matching the imaging versatility is the 4.2x optical zoom lens, which provides a 24-100mm equivalent focal length range, and features a bright f/1.8-2.8 maximum aperture for depth-of-field control and working in difficult lighting conditions. Both a high-resolution 2.36 million dot electronic viewfinder and 3-inch 1.04 million dot multi-angle touchscreen LCD are available for monitoring and image review, and built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows you to wirelessly share images with a smartphone, tablet, or Connect Station CS100. Revolving around the sophisticated sensor and processor combination, the G5x sports both apt imaging capabilities as well as a wealth of functional assets for shooting control and sharing.
To benefit handling, the G5 X has been fitted with numerous physical controls, including a dedicated exposure compensation dial, front dial, control ring and control dial for quickly customising various shooting settings. A hot shoe is incorporated into the design for working with an optional external flash, and the camera is also compatible with the optional RS-60E3 for wired remote shooting.
A large 20.2 Megapixel 1" High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor combine to create the Canon HS SYSTEM, which offers enhanced low-light performance with reduced image noise, as well as a top sensitivity of ISO 12800. The sensor and processor also benefit performance speeds throughout the camera, including a top 5.9 fps shooting rate in one-shot AF or 4.4 fps with continuous AF. The physically large sensor and advanced processing techniques also contribute to rich image quality that is well-suited to printing applications.
The versatile 4.2x optical zoom lens covers a wide-angle to short telephoto 24-100mm equivalent focal length range, and features an f/1.8-2.8 maximum aperture along with image stabilisation to benefit handheld shooting in difficult lighting conditions. The fast maximum aperture also pairs with a nine-blade diaphragm to produce a smooth out-of-focus quality when working with selective focus techniques.
Utilising the unique Intelligent IS image stabilisation system, this camera compensates for a variety of types of camera shake by analysing different movement types and applying specific settings to produce the sharpest imagery and smoothest movies:
A 2.36 million dot electronic viewfinder offers high-resolution, wide gamut eye-level monitoring for critical viewing in harsh lighting conditions. The viewfinder provides 100% frame coverage, incorporates a sensor for switching between the finder and rear monitor, has a smooth refresh rate of 120 fps, and has an eye point of 22mm for viewing flexibility. For live view monitoring and image playback, a 3-inch 1.04 million dot LCD screen is available and features a multi-angle design for working from high and low angles, and is also a touchscreen for intuitive settings control and menu navigation. The vari-angle design can rotate up to 270° and can also be turned around and closed against the camera body for protection while shooting. An exposure compensation dial, as well as a customisable front dial, control ring, and control dial, lend easily accessible, direct control over various shooting settings. A hot shoe allows you to pair optional external flashes as well as other shoe-mounted accessories with the camera. A remote socket permits use of the optional RS-60E3 Remote Switch for wired remote camera control.
In addition to stills shooting, full HD 1080p video recording is possible in multiple frame rates, including 60, 30, and 24 fps. Movies are saved in the MP4 format and an HDMI port permits direct, high definition playback and live monitoring on external screens. Audio quality has been enhanced thanks to a wider dynamic range and better signal-to-noise ratio and for greater control during recording, access to manual exposure modes is available. Additionally, focus peaking can be used for faster, more intuitive manual focusing.
Both photos and movies can be wirelessly shared to smartphones or tablets, using the Canon Camera Connect app, for instant online sharing or backed up to the Canon Connect Station CS100 via built-in Wi-Fi with NFC connectivity. Remote shooting from a linked mobile device is also available, allowing you to wirelessly configure exposure modes, aspect ratios, AF frame modes, or drive modes. In addition to the touch-to-connect functionality of NFC, a dedicated mobile device connect button is also integrated into the camera's design for seamless pairing of the camera to a device for browsing and sharing imagery.
