Features

New 1.0-inch, 20.2 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS Sensor

Larger than the sensors widely used for compact cameras, the PowerShot G7 X camera's new 1.0-inch sensor achieves a beautiful balance between high sensitivity and high image quality. The sensor is able to collect more light in a shorter time period without the overflow that causes blown-out highlights. This means better detail and more subtle image quality, with rich gradation even at high ISO speeds all the way to 12800. A high signal-to-noise ratio delivers minimal noise and distortion with breathtaking dynamic range, particularly notable in bright areas. And photography enthusiasts will appreciate the changes in image processing for the PowerShot G7 X, which include target exposure value and contrast characteristics of highlights. Thanks to this change, dynamic range in bright areas is expanded with gradation attributes that are similar to EOS. Also, by changing the exposure index standard, it is possible to shoot at almost the same brightness with the same aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings as EOS. The PowerShot G7 X natively captures images in the 3:2 aspect ratio, which is the same as Canon EOS SLR cameras. The camera's image creation technology was designed with post processing in mind, and features an Aspect Ratio function, enabling RAW image capture in both 3:2 and 4:3 aspect ratios while maintaining the same angle of view.

Canon DIGIC 6 Image Processor

The PowerShot G7 X is powered by the latest iteration of Canon's proprietary processor, the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, which takes still and video image quality to a beautiful new level. Improved light sensitivity allows for higher resolution with less noise when shooting in dark conditions, and Dynamic IS now detects and compensates for tilt and parallel movement (shift blur) to create video that's exceptionally free of distortion. The DIGIC 6 Image Processor also enhances the performance capabilities of the PowerShot G7 X, powering full resolution high-speed continuous still shooting (even in P, Av, Tv and M modes) and the advanced star shooting modes. The processor allows for MP4 video recording for better compatibility with mobile devices and tablets. Highly compressed MP4 video not only preserves space on your memory card but also improves playback on mobile devices. The new processor also supports an MF Peaking function, giving you a pro-level focusing tool.


f/1.8 (W) – f/2.8 (T), 4.2x Optical Zoom (24mm–100mm) Lens

The remarkable new lens on the PowerShot G7 X camera takes full advantage of the camera's large sensor, giving your photography a wide range of expression. With a very bright aperture value of f/1.8 at the wide angle and f/2.8 when fully zoomed to a factor of 4.2x (24mm–100mm), this lens not only puts more in your frame, but is equipped to capture an incredible variety of situations with artistry and precision. Equipped with a 9-blade Iris diaphragm, the lens lets you achieve a beautiful background defocus with shapes that are nearly round. Capture macro shots from as close as 2.0 in. (telephoto at 1.3 ft.). From a design perspective, each of the 11 glass lenses on the PowerShot G7 X has a multi-layer coating on it, which is similar to the Super Spectra Coating technology developed for EF lenses. These coatings have features like a high transmission factor, ultraviolet protection, resistant surface hardness, and stable characteristics. The coating also maximizes suppression of unwanted reflected light from ghosting or flaring to deliver clear images with high image quality.



High-resolution Multi-angle Touch Panel LCD

The PowerShot G7 X camera's LCD screen can tilt up 180°, so taking that perfect selfie is a snap! In fact, the multi-angle LCD encourages creative framing because it's easy to achieve a flexible array of camera angles. Capacitive touch-panel operation feels familiar right away: simply touch to access quick control settings, focus and shutter release right on screen. A resolution of 1.04 million pixels makes the glare-free display ultra crisp and clear, so it's easy to compose your shots, choose camera settings, and review and share your images.



Full Resolution Continuous Shooting and High-Speed AF

Powered by the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, the PowerShot G7 X camera gives you a seamless, high-speed continuous shooting (up to 6.5 fps) experience that's fully available in P, Tv, Av, M and Auto modes. Shooting and processing are now performed in tandem, reducing buffering time to deliver high shooting speeds. With the significantly higher AF speed, achieving focus nearly the instant the camera is aimed is made possible. With no separate mode setting and no reduction in image quality, you can freeze brilliant action shots with ease.


31 AF Points

With 31 focus points arranged in an expanded, wide pattern across the image plane, the PowerShot G7 X focuses with admirable speed and precision. Smaller focus frame sizes also make it possible to obtain accurate focus on small subjects. The PowerShot G7 X also supports 1-point and Touch AF.



Built-in NFC (Near Field Communication)

The PowerShot G7 X camera supports NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, eliminating the need to manually find and open the Canon Camera Connect app** on your mobile device. Simply touch the NFC icon on your camera to your compatible Android™* device, and the Camera Connect app will launch automatically for remote shooting and quick, easy sharing of your images. Built-in NFC technology also makes it simpler to install the app. If the app hasn't been installed yet, once you touch the devices together for the first time, the download screen will display automatically.

Canon Full HD Video with Manual Control

Whether you're creating artistic film clips or capturing special occasions, the advanced video capabilities of the PowerShot G7 X camera will get them the attention they deserve. Incredibly realistic 1080p Full HD video is recorded at 60 frames per second with stereo sound in convenient MP4 format. Video is smooth and richly detailed even when played back on a large-screen HDTV via the camera's HDMI output. The MP4 format's small file size lets you fit more on a single memory card, and makes downloading and sharing quicker and easier. In keeping with the camera's EOS-like capabilities, Manual movie mode is also available. Adjust Av, Tv, and ISO speed – you can even select focus points by using the touch panel LCD screen – either before or during video capture to express your vision your way in a wider variety of situations – all from a compact that fits in your bag.




Apple iFrame®

The PowerShot G7 X also records video in the Apple iFrame® format, a computer-friendly standard that speeds up the importing and editing of videos. The format keeps file sizes small, so uploading or e-mailing high-quality videos is quick and easy. The iFrame format enjoys native support in compatible Mac and Windows video applications, so you won't need to make time-consuming conversions that can degrade quality.


Intelligent IS

It's easy to capture clear, steady images with the PowerShot G7 X camera – even in low light without using a tripod – because it is equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS. The system automatically analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation, allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. For stills, the system selects from Normal IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Active Tripod IS modes. Icons clearly mark the image stabilization mode, whether you're shooting still images or video.


Still Image Shooting


Normal IS - Corrects for a wide range of camera movement when shooting stills.

Panning IS - Panning motion is detected so that IS does not interfere with desired camera movement.

Macro (Hybrid) IS - Corrects for shift-type camera shake, which typically occurs in macro (close-up) shooting.

Tripod - When tripod use is detected, the Image Stabilizer is stopped because it is not needed.


Video Recording


Dynamic IS - Effective for video shooting at wide-angle focal lengths, eliminating the unwanted shaking that typically occurs while walking.

Powered IS - Compensates for hand movement when shooting video at the telephoto end of the zoom range, where camera shake is magnified.

Macro (Hybrid) IS - Corrects for motion blur that is likely to occur when shooting video while walking. Also compensates for the shift-type camera shake common in macro shooting.

Active Tripod IS - When shooting video while using a tripod, the image stabilization is active to compensate for slight camera shake.


Convenient control ring, exposure dial, and mode dial provide intuitive manual adjustment

Thoughtfully designed controls distinguish the PowerShot G7 X camera as the first of its line, and will satisfy even advanced photographers. The front control ring makes easy setting changes possible, with customizable zoom, Tv and Av assignments. A two-layer exposure compensation dial is easily accessed from the secure, concave thumb grip, and keeps pace as you quickly and actively create images. A mode dial and dedicated Movie button – as well as two customizable functions buttons on the back of the camera that you manually set to gain easy access to some shooting modes and functions – all contribute to the camera's quick, convenient operability.



Star Shooting Mode

Starry skies were formerly out of reach to all but experienced SLR camera users; however, star shooting modes on the PowerShot G7 X camera make these wonderfully impressive images accessible to all. With just a tripod and simple settings, you can capture exquisite Star Nightscapes, Star Trails, Star Time-Lapse Movies and Star Portraits. In Star Portrait mode, the camera consecutively takes two shots of the subject, plus one of the night sky, and then merges them into a single image, creating beautiful portraits with a starry background. The modes can be performed fully automatically or with manual controls for extra versatility. Support functions including Night Display, Color Adjustment and Star Emphasis make any starry sky easier to capture.



HDR handheld (no tripod required)

Although the PowerShot G7 X camera has been designed with an expanded dynamic range for excellent capture of bright areas, high contrast environments can be further controlled with High Dynamic Range shooting mode. In this mode, the camera will shoot three different exposures in succession (underexposed, overexposed and normal) and then merge them into a single image. Underexposed areas are combined with the overexposed and vice versa, resulting in an evenly detailed image with flattering shadows and highlights. The camera allows you to use this mode without a tripod, and features four sub-modes in addition to Natural – Art Standard, Art Vivid, Art Bold and Art Embossed – which provide striking effects that add to the creativity of your compositions.



RAW

As with many EOS DSLR cameras, the PowerShot G7 X camera uses a 12-bit converter to process the output of the CMOS sensor, resulting in true color, smooth tonal transitions and natural gradations. The PowerShot G7 X lets you shoot in RAW mode, which records all the information captured by the sensor, giving you outstanding flexibility and complete creative control when editing your images with Canon's powerful bundled software. The camera also allows you to record in RAW and JPEG formats simultaneously. Now, in RAW mode, you can even select among several aspect ratios, including 16:9, 3:2, 4:3, 1:1 and 4:5.




ND Filter

The PowerShot G7 X camera includes a neutral density (ND) filter. The ND filter reduces light coming into the sensor, which allows you to set longer exposure times and very wide apertures to create striking photographic effects.




Creative Shot

The Creative Shot mode featured on the PowerShot G7 X camera can help anyone create images with artistic flair. Rather than randomly applying filters, Creative Shot mode takes advantage of Canon's advanced image and scene analysis technology to apply any of the 46 filter options based on the individual scene, subject and exposure. In addition to the original shot, the camera automatically produces and saves five unique variations of the composition by cropping it, rotating it, or adjusting its color, tone, and more. The result is stunning artistic photos that are perfect for sharing.
