The Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Digital Camera is a high-performance compact camera with a 12.8-megapixel High-Sensitivity 1.5-inch CMOS sensor “High-resolution still images and Full HD 1080p video are produced using a CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 6 image processor, which also provides excellent low-light performance and sensitivity up to ISO 12800.
With the aid of the Canon HS SYSTEM, which combines the sensor and processor, it is possible to improve the image quality of photographs taken in low light by decreasing noise and increasing overall clarity.
The processor also provides a number of speed-related advantages throughout the camera, including a maximum full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 5.2 frames per second for up to the capacity of an SDHC/SDXC UHS-I memory card, and a High-Speed AF system that maintains sharpness under a variety of shooting conditions.
Using the built-in Canon 5x optical zoom lens, you can capture images with a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-120mm, which covers wide-angle to telephoto viewpoint ranges.
In low-light situations, the maximum aperture of f/2-3.9, along with the 9-blade diaphragm, helps to isolate subject matter and achieve a pleasant out-of-focus look in shallow depth of field photographs, which is particularly useful.
An Optical Image Stabilizer technology, which helps to decrease the appearance of camera shake while working with longer shutter speeds and longer focal lengths, contributes to the coverage of this lens.
There are a number of design components built into the tiny camera’s design that contribute to its overall easy handling scheme, including a 3.0MP sensor “A 1,040k-dot capacitive touchscreen LCD with a tilting design that allows users to operate from both high and low angles is available.
Dual Control Rings, which offer a variety of configurable settings and imitate the function of a standard SLR lens, including full-time manual focusing capabilities, for increased familiarity throughout the shooting process, are also included in the revised lens design.
The camera’s built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, which enables the rapid transmission of photographs and movies to linked mobile devices, home computers, or straight to selected social networking sites, is a nice complement to its imaging and handling characteristics.
The use of NFC technology, which streamlines the sharing procedure, significantly simplifies the connection process even further. It is also possible to operate and release the camera’s shutter from mobile devices once they are connected.
