Built-in Electronic Viewfinder

The PowerShot G5 X’s 2.36 million dot electronic viewfinder adds flexibility in how you use the camera. It’s great for photographers who prefer to hold the camera up to their eye, and is a veritable lifesaver in bright light and other situations where the lighting is difficult. What’s more, you can also customize the image information you see in the viewfinder to help get your photo looking how you want it to, and view vivid edge-to-edge images you can easily compose, adjust and review.

1.0-inch CMOS Sensor

At the heart of the PowerShot G5 X camera is a brilliant 1.0-inch 20.2 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor. Physically larger than the sensors found in most compact cameras, the PowerShot G5 X’s sensor works in tandem with Canon’s DIGIC 6 Image Processor to quickly deliver gorgeous, high-resolution images with nuanced details, plus impressive low-light performance with a low signal-to-noise ratio and minimal noise and distortion.

With a 35mm equivalent range of 24–100mm it’s equally suitable for landscapes, portraits, group photographs and even close-up photography. The PowerShot G5 X’s lens works with the camera’s sensor and image processor to deliver sharp images tailored to meet the exacting standards of even critical photographers.
