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.
* Image processing may cause a decrease in the number of pixels.
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.
A bright f/1.8 (W) - f/2.8 (T),
4.2x Optical Zoom (24mm-100mm), 9-blade iris diaphragm and IS equipped
lens enables you to capture more in your frame, and is ideal for
low-light conditions or using shallow depth-of-field for dramatic, soft
backgrounds. Focus range starts at 2.0 in. for Macro and 1.3 ft. for
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.

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.
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.
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
The Creative Shot mode featured on the PowerShot G7 X camera can

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.
