Slim Brilliance, Impressive Image Quality

Canon PowerShot G9 X Digital Camera The Canon Powershot G9 X pairs a sleek form factor with a big image sensor.It's a pocketable compact camera made in Silver and Brown or Black, featuring a 20.2MP 1" High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor along with DIGIC 6 image processor. The sensor and processor integrate to form the Canon HS SYSTEM for fresh, clear picture quality, sensitivity all the way to ISO 12800, continuous shooting as fast as 6 fps and full 1080p/60 HD video recording. A wide-angle thru portrait-length 3x zoom lens delivers a 35mm equivalent 28-80mm focal length while Intelligent IS helps to diminish the appearance of camera shake for crisper handheld photography in difficult lighting situations. Although a slim size, the G9 X is also characterized by it's array of physical controls, a big 3.0" LCD 1.04m-dot touchscreen monitor, along with built-in Wi-Fi including NFC for wireless sharing of images and remote control of the camera using smartphones and tablets.

A big 20.2MP 1" High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor along with DIGIC 6 image processor are combined to make up the Canon HS SYSTEM, which provides enhanced low-light operation featuring reduced image noise, along with a top sensitivity up to ISO 12800. The sensor and processor also take advantage of performance speeds all through the camera, including a top 6 frames per second shooting rate in one-shot autofocus or 4.3 fps with continuous autofocus. The physically big sensor and advanced processing capability also contribute to provide rich image quality that is opportune to printing functions.
