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.
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.
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.
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.
