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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Connect with Wi-Fi
Capture amazing images with ease. Shoot stunning starry nightscapes, star trails or star time-lapse movies with Star Mode. Use HDR to capture high contrast scenes without a tripod or Background Defocus to achieve beautiful, SLR style background blur. Effortlessly create a fun HD (720p) movie summary of all the day’s shots with Hybrid Auto.
The PowerShot G7 X is built to exacting standards. It inspires confidence from the first time you pick it up. Attention to detail is everywhere, from the delicate design of the camera’s controls to its refined metal body. A thin red line decorates the mode dial, machined from a single block of aluminium - a symbol of the exacting standards that are characteristic of the PowerShot G-series pedigree.
