PowerShot G5X is an advanced point-and-shoot digital camera by Canon, characterized by its large feature-set. A sleek and compact profile incorporates a large 3.0-inch 1.04m-dot multi-angle touchscreen LCD for monitoring and image review. The camera features 1-inch 20.2MP megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor combine to create the Canon HS SYSTEM, which allows clean, clear imagery with minimal noise and a wide dynamic range. It also offers an expanded 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.
Complementing the sensor and processor combination is a versatile 4.2x zoom lens which provides a 24-100mm equivalent focal length range, covering wide-angle to short-telephoto perspectives. A fast f/1.8-f/2.8 maximum aperture maintains consistent performance throughout the zoom range and also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions. The lens design is surrounded by a familiar control ring that offers intuitive control over settings.
Additionally, the G5X also features built-in Wi-Fi with NFC for wireless sharing of imagery to smartphones or tablets as well as remote camera control from linked mobile devices. Other important features are Full HD video recording at up to 60, 30 and 24 fps, Self Timer, Built-in Flash, HDMI D (Micro), Micro-USB, USB 2.0 and a rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery.
