Canon PowerShot G7 X. A premium high-performance camera that puts exciting and impressive capabilities in a sophisticated, compact package.
It starts with the sensor: a large and light-grabbing 1.0-inch, 20.2 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor powered by Canon’s latest generation DIGIC 6 Image Processor for beautifully rendered low-light photography up to ISO 12800.
Whether you’re creating artistic film clips or capturing special occasions, the advanced video capabilities of the Canon PowerShot G7 X camera will get them the attention they deserve.

Incredibly realistic 1080p Full HD video is recorded at 60 frames per second with stereo sound in convenient MP4 format. Video is smooth and richly detailed even when played back on a large-screen HDTV via the camera’s HDMI output.
The MP4 format’s small file size lets you fit more on a single memory card, and makes downloading and sharing quicker and easier.
In keeping with the camera’s EOS-like capabilities, Manual movie mode is also available. Adjust Av, Tv, and ISO speed – you can even select focus points by using the touch panel LCD screen – either before or during video capture to express your vision your way in a wider variety of situations – all from a compact that fits in your bag.
Larger than the sensors widely used for compact cameras, the Canon PowerShot G7 X camera’s new 1.0-inch sensor achieves a beautiful balance between high sensitivity and high image quality.
The sensor is able to collect more light in a shorter time period without the overflow that causes blown-out highlights. This means better detail and more subtle image quality, with rich gradation even at high ISO speeds all the way to 12800.
A high signal-to-noise ratio delivers minimal noise and distortion with breathtaking dynamic range, particularly notable in bright areas. And photography enthusiasts will appreciate the changes in image processing for the PowerShot G7 X, which include target exposure value and contrast characteristics of highlights.
Thanks to this change, dynamic range in bright areas is expanded with gradation attributes that are similar to EOS. Also, by changing the exposure index standard, it is possible to shoot at almost the same brightness with the same aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings as EOS.
The Canon PowerShot G7 X natively captures images in the 3:2 aspect ratio, which is the same as Canon EOS SLR cameras.
The camera’s image creation technology was designed with post processing in mind, and features an Aspect Ratio function, enabling RAW image capture in both 3:2 and 4:3 aspect ratios while maintaining the same angle of view
It’s easy to capture clear, steady images with the Canon PowerShot G7 X camera – even in low light without using a tripod – because it is equipped with Canon’s innovative Intelligent IS.
The system automatically analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation, allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. For stills, the system selects from Normal IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes.
When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Active Tripod IS modes.
Icons clearly mark the image stabilization mode, whether you’re shooting still images or video.
