Canon PowerShot G7 X: 42 facts and highlights

1. megapixels

2. sensor size

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3. focus points

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

4. continuous shooting at high resolution

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

5. weight

6. maximum light sensitivity

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

7. video recording

8. longer battery life

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

9. Has WiFi

The device can connect to WiFi.

11. fastest shutter speed

A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

12. has a 24p cinema mode

24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.

13. width

14. higher resolution (screen)

A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.

17. has built-in optical image stabilization

Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
