The Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II is a compact camera with advanced imaging capabilities. The camera’s 20.1MP 1" CMOS sensor with a DIGIC 7 image processor produces clean and high-resolution image quality well-suited to working in difficult lighting conditions. It has extended sensitivity to ISO 12800 and avails quick shooting performance up to 8.2 fps for working with moving subjects. The camera supported Full HD 1080p video recording and has in-camera time-lapse movies for producing dynamic moving image content. The imaging capabilities are a versatile 3x optical zoom lens that covers a wide-angle to portrait-length 28-84mm equivalent focal length range and Dynamic IS benefits this reach by minimizing the appearance of camera shake. The slim camera body features a 3.0" touchscreen LCD for intuitive control, built-in Wi-Fi with NFC and Bluetooth for wirelessly transferring imagery and remotely controlling the camera from a mobile device.
Sensor and Processor
The camera has a large 20.1MP 1" High-Sensitivity BSI CMOS sensor and DIGIC 7 image processor combine to create the Canon HS SYSTEM which offers an expanded sensitivity range up to ISO 12800 and enhanced low-light performance with reduced image noise to benefit working in difficult conditions. The pairing also avails quick performance throughout the camera system and including an 8.2 fps continuous shooting rate, quick autofocus with subject tracking and Full HD 1080p video recording at 60 fps. The large sensor size contributes to rich image quality that is well-suited to printing and sharing work.
Zoom Lens and Image Stabilization
The camera has a versatile 3x optical zoom lens covers a wide-angle to portrait-length 28-84mm equivalent focal length range and it has an f/2-4.9 maximum aperture along with Intelligent IS and Dual Sensing IS image stabilization technologies to benefit handheld shooting in difficult lighting conditions. The Dynamic IS can also be used to help stabilize videos and minimize the appearance of shake when recording while walking.
