Canon PowerShot G7 X

An expert's pocket camera

The PowerShot G7 X has been specifically designed for those who want uncompromising image quality and control from a pocketable camera. From the refined metal body to the impressive quality of its results everything says Canon premium G-Series DNA.

Exceptional quality in any light

Capture beautiful background blur and superb detail with bright f/1.8-2.8 zoom lens, and 1.0-type sensor. Master low light shots with HS System, and DIGIC 6.


Capture sharp detail in even the most challenging situations thanks to the bright f/1.8-2.8 lens, which lets a lot of light to reach the sensor. With a 4.2x optical zoom (24–100mm) it is ideal for both wide-angle photography and getting closer to your subjects. Shoot stunning portraits with beautiful perspective and background blur using the wide aperture at full zoom.

Beautiful Bokeh

The term 'Bokeh' comes from a Japanese word that refers to the quality of the out-of-focus parts of an image. The PowerShot G7 X uses a nine-bladed lens aperture to produce smooth background blur and virtually circular out-of-focus highlights. Create beautiful 18-ray starburst effects in scenes with strong highlights.


Capture superb low light shots and beautiful background blur. The 1.0-type CMOS sensor offers you improved low light performance without compromising the compactness of the camera. It uses a light-sensitive area that is nearly 3 times larger than that of 1/1.7-type sensors, providing increased light sensitivity, reduced noise, (especially at high ISO) and a wider dynamic range. It also gives you greater creative flexibility with a shallower depth of field for professional looking out of focus backgrounds.

HS System

Day or night your images will be just as you remember them. Canon’s HS System – with DIGIC 6 and a large 1.0-type, 20.2 MP CMOS sensor - gives you exceptional image quality and excels in low light. So it’s easy to capture the real atmosphere of the moment without flash or a tripod.

Sharp results every time

There's no need to worry about camera shake ruining your results thanks to an intelligent optical Image Stabilizer. This camera automatically adapts and ensures sharp, detailed photos and videos even if you’re shooting at full zoom or handheld in low light. Plus your movies will be spectacularly steady thanks to 5-axis movie stabilisation.

31-point focus AF gives accurate focus

Catch the action with high-speed 31-point AF. The 31-points cover a large area of the frame, with a confirmation of the chosen AF points.

Expert control

Quick access to advanced controls and settings is easy with the dedicated exposure compensation dial, Lens Control Ring and customisable buttons. Use Full Manual and RAW with multi-aspect support to get just the shot you want. The built-in ND filter extends your shooting capability, such as shooting in day light with slower shutter speed.

Lens Control ring

A Lens Control Ring is easy to use while framing your shot, and can be programed to give instant control of aperture, focus and a host of other functions.

Customisable Controls

Customisable controls make operating the PowerShot G7 X instinctive and natural, so you can concentrate on your creativity.

Integral ND Filter

A built-in neutral density (ND) filter can be used to reduce the brightness of a scene, allowing long exposures to be used to convey movement.

Intuitive touch screen

Enjoy superb viewing and flexible framing. A high-quality LCD tilt-up touchscreen, with 1,040k dot resolution, uses sRGB colour reproduction for excellent colour accuracy, image clarity and contrast. The touch interface enables more intuitive control and adds a range of useful functions such as Touch AF.

Make movies with the personal touch

Making stunning movies is easy. With one touch of a button you can shoot smooth, realistic Full HD 60p movies in stereo, recorded in the widely compatible MP4 format. Achieve perfect focus with the MF Peaking function and explore your creativity using manual movie control.
