The Canon PowerShot G9 X has a sleek body with a 1” 20.2MP high-Sensitivigy CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor to help you take better photos in challenging conditions. The sensor and DIGIC 6 processor work together for clean pictures up to ISO 12800 for low light use, 6FPS continuous shooting so you won’t miss the critical moment, and full HD 1080p/60 video recording. The lens zooms from 28 to 80mm (35mm equivalent) and the intelligent image stabilization (IS) helps to minimize camera shake in a wide variety of conditions. The camera features a large 3.0” 1.04m-Dot touchscreen for intuitive control and built in WiFi and NFC so that you can share photos instantly and control the camera through a compatible phone or tablet.
20.2MP Sensor and DIGIC 6 Processor
The Canon G9 x features a huge 20.2MP sensor that measures 1” and the DIGIC 6 processor for enhanced low light performance and low noise images out to ISO 12800. The camera can shoot at up to 6 frames per second to capture the perfect moment. The 1” sensor is very large for a point and shoot camera, and helps the image quality greatly.
28-80mm Zoom Lens
The 28-80mm (35mm equivalent) zoom lens covers a VERY versatile range from wide angle to portrait and features intelligent IS for sharp photos even when handheld.
Built in wiFi and NFC
Built in WiFi and NFC connectivity allow instant sharing through a cell phone or tablet, and also allow the photographer enhanced camera controls and framing options. This means no more guessing if everyone is in the picture while you race the self-timer, and once you take your mega-group-selfie you can share it instantaneously. A 3.0” 1.04m-dot LCD touchscreen makes composition and control easy when you don’t want to get your phone out. A physical control ring gives extra creative control – just spin the ring around the lens for creative effects or adjustments.
The Canon G9 X features intelligent Image Stabilization (IS) for improved sharpness and stability under a wider variety of conditions than previously available. Several different IS modes are available for the best results under different conditions.
HD Video Recording
For maximum versatility the G9 X can capture Full HD 1080P video at several frame rates (60, 30, 24FPS) and can play them back directly to an HD monitor with an HDMI output, or upload to your computer or internet. The built in microphones have wide dynamic range for easy setup and the camera allows manual control of recording functions with focus peaking in real time for experienced users.
