Illuminate Your Passion
Blending notable imaging qualities with sophisticated handling, the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II Camera is a compact point-and-shoot digital characterized by its large aspect-set. Using a 20.1MP 1"
CMOS sensor and DIGIC 7 imaging processor, this camera provides an expanded 25600 ISO sensitivity and achieves creamy image quality with reduced noise when working in poor-light conditions. Additionally, it is also capable of acquiring stills at up to 8 frames per second as well as Full
1080p60 HD video. Complementing the sensor and processor combination is an all around 4.2x zoom lens, which provides a 35mm 24-100mm
equivalent focal length perspective, covering wide-angle to short-telephoto ranges. A fast f/1.8-2.8 maximum aperture preserves consistent performance all through the zoom range and is also an advantage when working in demanding lighting conditions. Surrounding the the lens design is a familiar control ring that provides intuitive control over settings, and a big 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD which tilts is a natural mode for composing images from a variety of shooting points. Additionally, the G7 X Mark II also has Wi-Fi with NFC built-in for sharing of images wirelessly to smartphones or tablets, as well as controlling the camera remotely from linked mobile devices.
Providing illustrious image quality in an array of shooting environments, a 20.1MP 1" CMOS sensor united with a DIGIC 7 image processor interface to make up the Canon HS SYSTEM, which delivers clean, clear images with minimum noise and a wide dynamic range, with a HIGH expanded sensitivity UP to ISO 25600. The sensor and processor also provide the ability to both shoot
JPEG files at up to 8 frames per second or capture Full HD 1080p60 video in the MP4 format complete with stereo sound
In addition to benefitting image quality, the DIGIC 7 processor also enhances focusing speeds and tracking capabilities for maintaining sharp focus on moving subjects, even in low light and low contrast situations. Additionally, the processor also enables Dual Sensing IS that interprets data from imagery in order to intelligently reduce blur caused by camera shake.
4.2x Optical Zoom Lens and Intelligent IS
A built-in 4.2x optical zoom lens provides a versatile 24-100mm equivalent focal length range, and features a bright f/1.8-2.8 maximum aperture range to benefit working in difficult lighting conditions throughout the zoom range. This fast maximum aperture also teams up with a nine-blade diaphragm to produce a smooth bokeh quality when using selective focus techniques. Additionally, a Super Spectra Coating has been applied to individual lens elements to noticeably reduce lens flare and ghosting when shooting in strong lighting conditions.
An Intelligent IS image stabilization system is also incorporated into the lens design to minimize the appearance of camera shake for a variety of shooting scenarios:
Normal IS: Corrects for a wide variety of camera movement types when shooting stills.
Panning IS: Intended for use when making tracking shots, this setting ensures that IS will not interfere with desired lateral camera movements.
Macro (Hybrid) IS: Used for both stills and video recording, this setting corrects for shift-type camera shake that is common when photographing close-up subjects. It also compensates for motion blur associated with recording video while walking.
Tripod: Image stabilization is deactivated when shooting stills atop a tripod.
Dynamic IS: This setting is effective when recording video using wider focal lengths and simultaneously walking or moving.
Powered IS: Ideally suited for shooting video with telephoto focal lengths, this mode compensates for the camera movements that become more apparent with greater zoom magnifications.
Active Tripod IS: Unlike the stills tripod mode, this video-specific tripod mode compensates for slight amounts of shake that can be caused when recording movies from a tripod.
Body Design and Built-In Wi-Fi
A sleek, compact profile incorporates a large 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD that features a 180° upward, 45° downward tilting design to support taking selfies or working from low shooting angles.
A manual control ring surrounds the lens for intuitive control over select camera and exposure settings. The ring can also be set to have clicked intervals, for tactile recognition of settings changes, or can be de-clicked for smooth, quiet transitions between adjustments.
Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows you to wirelessly share your photos and movies with a linked smartphone or tablet as well as remotely control the camera from the mobile device by using the Camera Connect app.
Other Camera Features
Picture Style affords in-camera control over the color, contrast, and sharpness of imagery.
In-camera raw file conversions let you preview and apply adjustments to files without needing to process the files on a computer.
A Time-Lapse Movie function automatically compiles sequentially-recorded images taken at predetermined intervals and composites them into a seamless movie file for smooth playback.
A dedicated Panning function can lock onto an intended subject and, using
image stabilization, automatically adjust the shutter speed to render a sharp moving subject set against a blurred background.
