1.0-inch High-Sensitivity CMOS Sensor
At the heart of the Canon PowerShot G5 X camera is a brilliant 1.0-inch 20.2 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor. Physically larger than the sensors found in most compact cameras, the PowerShot G5 X’s sensor works in tandem with Canon’s DIGIC 6 Image Processor to quickly deliver gorgeous, high-resolution images with nuanced details, plus impressive low-light performance with a low signal-to-noise ratio and minimal noise and distortion. Suitable for tremendous enlargements, significant cropping and many other applications appealing to the advanced photographer, images and video captured on the PowerShot G5 X’s sensor are engineered to impress even the most critical eye.
Canon DIGIC 6 Image Processor
The Canon PowerShot G5 X camera 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 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 G5 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 processor also supports an MF Peaking function, giving you a pro-level focusing tool.
Built-in Electronic Viewfinder
The PowerShot G5 X’s 2.36 million dot electronic viewfinder adds flexibility in how you use the camera. It’s great for photographers who prefer to hold the camera up to their eye, and is a veritable lifesaver in bright light and other situations where the lighting is difficult. What’s more, you can also customize the image information you see in the viewfinder to help get your photo looking how you want it to, and view vivid edge-to-edge images you can easily compose, adjust and review.
