This November, Canon is bringing to the Philippines the newest model from its PowerShot G series line of premium digital compact cameras. The G9 X is built with the latest Canon imaging technology and comes with a large 1.0” 20.2-megapixel CMOS sensor that renders higher sensitivity for superior image quality.
Designed with the ease of photographer in mind, the camera features a new optimized button layout on the user interface. The touch screen complements the control ring around the lens for easy adjustments to camera settings such as ISO speed, aperture, and focus.
“The PowerShot G9 X is a powerful yet convenient everyday camera perfect for Filipinos who are style conscious and love to snap images all the time,” said Vinchy Sanchez, Canon Marketing (Philippines) Inc.’s Director for Consumer Group. “They can capture stunning images and HD videos with ease anytime as Canon imprints in it its imaging expertise.”
Superb image quality
The PowerShot G series is associated with high image quality approaching the EOS line of DSLR cameras. The powerful high sensitivity CMOS sensor along with proprietary DIGIC 6 image processor creates Canon’s high-sensitivity (HS) system to provide photographers with high performance point-and-shoot cameras in varied lighting conditions. The high ISO speed of 12800 produces expressive images with beautiful contrast and crisp details even when shooting in low light situations.
The PowerShot G9 X uses a 28-84mm (35mm equivalent) 3x optical zoom lens providing the casual user with sufficient coverage in varied shooting scenarios. This versatile range covers wide-angle shots for group photography, in tight, enclosed spaces and telephoto range to get closer to distant subjects.
The circular 9-blade composition and large aperture of f/2.0 on the PowerShot G9 X enables beautiful bokeh (blurred background) effects in macro photography.
Slim line PowerShot G9 X for powerful imaging on the go
With a streamlined compact design and weighing approximately 209 grams, the pocket-sized yet powerful PowerShot G9 X is the lightest and most compact camera in the PowerShot G series range to date and perfect for everyday usage. Reminiscent of classic cameras with bold lines, the leather-like trim frame the sides of the camera, emphasising contrast in surface details while providing users with a firm grip when shooting.
The simplicity of its design carries over to its operability, with a control ring to complement the touch panel. Between these two elements, a user can easily control the camera settings and make adjustments quickly and efficiently.
In G9 X, the bulb exposure feature provides the user with greater control over shutter timings, which can be highly useful when capturing the light trails of cars, fireworks and night scenes. The new Auto ND Filter ensures that the appropriate brightness is achieved enabling the photographer to focus on capturing the moment in different situations.
Creative expressions with Advanced Movie Functions
Adept at creative avenues of expressions, the camera is equipped with movie editing functions for richer storytelling with the ability to record 1080p Full HD videos (at 24p and up to 60p in MP4 format).
Story Highlights automatically chooses a series of photos or clips and puts them together with effects, automated editing and even background music for a livelier dimension. The Short Clip Movie feature on the camera helps photographers capture a series of 4- to 6-second movie snippets with different play back speeds – normal-speed, fast motion, action replay or slow motion for stylistic effects.
Sharing your pictures anytime and anywhere
The G9 X is equipped with Wi-Fi and NFC for easy sharing of photos from between compatible cameras, smart devices and Canon iMAGE GATEWAY (CiG).
In addition, the Canon Camera Connect app allows users to remotely control camera functions such as zoom, focus, shutter speed, ISO, aperture, and aspect ratio via their smart devices. This is particularly useful for group pictures, in tight spaces where unusual angles are required, or shooting nature from a safer distance. For the first time in the PowerShot G Series line, alongside charging via the battery charger supplied, the convenience of in-camera USB charging is now also available thus giving users more options in ensuring their cameras are always powered up.
Compact Power Adaptor (CA-DC30) for USB charging is sold separately.
