While the majority of small point-and-shoot cameras are aimed at the budget-conscious end of the market, Canon has even better aspirations for the new flagship of its PowerShot G-series. With a 1.5-inch (18.7 x 14 mm), 14.3-megapixel High-Sensitivity Canon CMOS sensor which is merely 20 per cent diminished as opposed to the APS-C sensors expended in Canon‘s EOS sequence of DSLRs and more than six times better as opposed to persons in earliest G-series models, Canon displays its new Canon G1 X delivers the record image class out there in a efficient point-and-shoot.”
One big feature of the example is the sensor size,” Shunsuke Abe, a rep based on information from Canon Marketing. “Previous cases exhausted a 1/1.7 inch sensor, so the present one has 6.3 times the area. The result is monumental pictures, amidst a superior feeling of definition, and depth of focus on a par with an SLR.”
Canon G1 X displays the ideal sensor delivers shallow depth of field, wide dynamic cycle and improved low-light coming performance among the ability to throw at ISOs of up to 12,800. Throw in 14-bit RAW +JPEG shooting, Full HD 1080p video capture, a superior 28mm f/2.8 – f/16 lens among 4X optical zoom and you own a spiffy little camera which would be qualified of producing multi DSLRs a run for this money.
The G1 X includes Canon‘s HS System incorporating the DIGIC 5 image processor, as positively as a 3-inch variable-angle 922,000 dot LCD and optical viewfinder.Although it takes the mantle of G-series flagship according to the G12, both examples will be able to carry on to be purchased alongside every other. The Canon G1 X is due to hit shelves then the period and serves to retail for the princely sum of US$799.
