PowerShot G1 X

The Pinnacle of PowerShot.

Bright, fast and more creative than ever, the PowerShot G1 X brings together more advanced technologies than anything the G-Series has seen before. The new 14.3 Megapixel sensor, combined with a new lens and DIGIC 5 Image Processor, creates the HS SYSTEM that delivers image quality previously impossible in a compact camera – all with beautiful blur, lower noise, and extraordinary resolution in low-light shooting. It also features a new 1.5-inch High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor that's approximately 6.3 times larger than that of the PowerShot G12 digital camera. With the PowerShot G1 X, the best has once again gotten even better.

  • Full range of shooting and recording modes including 14-bit RAW + JPEG, as found in Canon DSLR cameras for the ultimate creative control.
  • Shoot beautiful 1080p Full HD video in stereo sound with a dedicated movie button; zoom while shooting and playback videos on an HDTV via the HDMI output.
  • 4x Optical Zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer, plus a 28mm Wide-Angle Lens delivers exceptional image quality and allows you to capture more in your frame.
  • Intelligent IS automatically chooses from six different modes to optimize image stabilization for the shooting condition.
  • Mode Dial and Front Dial provide intuitive manual adjustment.
  • High Dynamic Range scene mode combines multiple shots into one picture showing greater image detail.
