Canon Powershot G1X Mark II
Thanks to a large 12.8MP CMOS sensor and fast f2 lens, the Powershot G1X Mark II offers incredible image quality making it the very best in a long line of premium compact Canon cameras. The 5X zoom lens stays impressively fast throughout the range with a max aperture of 3.9 when zoomed in all the way; this equates to better low light performance and depth of field. Like other G series cameras the G1X II will appeal to enthusiasts in particular, with full manual controls and the flexibility of RAW image capture. For controlling the camera remotely and sharing your images to social media sites, the camera has built in Wi-Fi and NFC.

The Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Digital Camera is an advanced compact camera featuring a 12.8MP High-Sensitivity 1.5" CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 6 image processor to produce high-resolution still imagery and Full HD 1080p video with notable low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO 12800.
The sensor and processor work together to form the Canon HS SYSTEM, which helps to improve the image quality of dimly-lit shots by reducing noise and enhancing the overall clarity. Additionally, the processor offers a range of speed-related assets throughout the camera, including a maximum full resolution continuous shooting rate of 5.2 fps for up an SDHC/SDXC UHS-I memory card's capacity as well as a High Speed AF system for maintained sharpness in a variety of shooting conditions.
The built-in Canon 5x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-120mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto length perspectives. A maximum aperture of f/2-3.9 contributes to working in low lighting and, when coupled with the 9-blade diaphragm, helps to isolate subject matter and realize a pleasing out-of-focus quality in shallow depth of field images. Benefitting this lens' coverage is an Optical Image Stabilizer system, which helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake to suit working with longer shutter speeds and greater focal lengths.
The compact camera design integrates a number of design elements that complement an overall intuitive handling scheme, including a 3.0" 1,040k-dot capacitive touchscreen LCD that features a tilting design to benefit working from high and low angles. A redeveloped lens design also increases shooting efficiency through its incorporation of Dual Control Rings, which support a range of customizable settings and mimic the operation of a traditional SLR lens, including full-time manual focusing abilities, for greater familiarity during shooting.
Complementing the imaging and handling traits of the camera is built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, which allows for the instant sharing of photos and videos to linked mobile devices, home computers, or directly to select social networking sites. Connection is further simplified through the implementation of NFC technology to streamline the sharing process. Once linked, mobile devices can also be used to control and release the camera's shutter.
