      Product information
      Boasting a large image sensor, a fast f/2 zoom lens and a highly responsive processing engine, the Canon PowerShot G1X Mark II High Performance Compact Camera delivers versatile photography with DSLR-like results.

      Exceptional photography


      The PowerShot G1 X Mark II has a large 1.5" sensor which is combined with a 12.8 megapixel resolution. The CMOS image sensor gives you greater control over depth-of-field and produces outstanding low-noise images even when shooting at high ISOs in challenging light.

      Achieve stunning levels of detail, colour and tonal gradation with this outstanding imaging tool. A DIGIC 6 image processor is incorporated to deliver a responsive shooting experience on all occasions.

      Low light shooting


      The high performance camera delivers great low-light shooting. The HS System, combined with a bright f/2-3.9 lens, does more with the ambient light, rending the image to produce a clearer shot with superior clarity and colour.

      The Intelligent IS automatically sets the best optical image stabilisation mode from eight different options to eliminate camera shake and blur.

      Stay focused


      The ultra wide-angle 24 mm lens with 5x optical zoom works with Canon's precision technology to compose and capture brilliantly detailed shots. The bright f/2-3.9, 9-bladed aperture allows you to create excellent isolation on subjects with gorgeous background blur.

      A high-density 31-point AiAF system locks the subject swiftly and precisely, while the manual focus can be utilised with one of the camera's Dual Control Rings. There's also Manual Focus Peaking to further the accuracy by highlighting in-focus areas.

      Built-in WiFi

      The G1X Mark II features WiFi connectivity that enables you to connect the camera to a compatible smartphone or tablet device using the dedicated Mobile Device Connect Button or NFC.

      When you've created a link between the two devices you can enjoy even more convenience with the CameraWindow app. This allows you to control the PowerShot camera from your connected device - now you can get in the frame in group shots.

      Creative control


      You can customise the PowerShot G1 X to suit your own way of shooting, frequently used functions can be added to the custom menu for a quicker access while the customisable dual control rings can be programmed to your preference.

      A 3” PureColor II VA LCD touchscreen gives you a clear, detailed view of each scene and subject you're shooting. Its variable angle makes for more comfortable and creative shooting from all manner of positions for more satisfying photography.

      More creative possibilities


      Use the High Dynamic Range mode to take multiple exposures of a scene, then combine them in-camera for an image rich in shadow and highlight detail. Thanks to a built-in 3-stop ND filter, you can use longer shutter speeds or wider apertures in bright light.

      A Star mode provides an easy way of capturing stunning astrophotography.

      High-definition video


      The Canon G1X is capable of capturing video footage as well as great photographs, rendering scenes in 1920 x 1080p Full HD at 30 fps for entertainment of unbelievable quality.

      Relive life's one-off moments time and again with superb clarity, definition and colour, complemented by clear, punchy stereo sound. You can also use optical zoom whilst capturing video footage, helping you get a closer view of your subjects.

      With enhanced ergonomic handling, insightful functionality and a compact body, the Canon PowerShot G1X Mark II High Performance Compact Camera puts great photography potential in your hands.

      Fantastic lens with big aperture at wide end. Very low noise sensor. Wonderful images, to buy a lens for another system would cost you more than this camera.
      Heavy and not really pocketable. No viewfinder though I purchased the add on EVF which I haven't used as much as I thought I would. If you buy the camera try without first b4 buying EVF

      The G1 xII is a smallish portable camera ideal for taking on holiday, it is not a pocket size camera like the Canon G16. Images are very sharp and well exposed.
      You cannot use a filter and lens hood at the same time as far as I know.
