The Mark of PowerShot Excellence

Canon’s amazing PowerShot G1 X Mark II camera features a huge 1.5-inch CMOS sensor that combines with a bright and sophisticated Canon zoom lens. Compatible with a number of EOS accessories including flashes and a dedicated EVF, it’s a powerful compact camera that handles almost any photographic situations it encounters.


1.5-inch CMOS Sensor

Almost as large as the APS-C CMOS sensor found in many EOS digital SLRs, and bigger than those found in 4/3 system cameras, the PowerShot G1 X Mark II camera's sensor sets the standard for sensitivity and resolving power in compact cameras.

Dual Control Rings

The PowerShot G1 X Mark II camera's lens features two control rings on the lens barrel designed to enhance operability with quick, intuitive customizable functions. The inner ring is stepped and can be directed to set aperture value, shutter speed and exposure compensation. The outer, continuous ring has an easily recognizable different texture and makes fine-tuning adjustments simple, even enabling full-time manual focus that operates similarly to the focus rings found on most SLR lenses. Working in tandem with the PowerShot G1 X Mark II camera's rear-mounted control dial, virtually every shooting function can be accessed and customized to any photographer's favorite specifications.
