    20.9 MP CMOS sensor

    Delivering stunning, high-resolution images, the Canon PowerShot G5 X High Performance Compact Camera combines a 1” 20.9 megapixel high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and powerful DIGIC 6 image processor, allowing for significant cropping and enlargements.

    This high performance spec, along with a fast f/1.8 – f/2.8 lens, ensures the PowerShot G5 X offers impressive low-light performance with a low signal-to-noise ratio, and minimal noise and distortion.

    Advanced Dynamic Image Stabilisation (IS) ensures sharp, blur-free images and smooth, detailed Full HD movies by counteracting shake caused by shooting handheld.

    Creative control

    Experiment with full creative control using the quick access dedicated dials, and shoot with confidence thanks to fast, accurate autofocus and a 5.9 fps capture rate.

    With close shooting possible at just 5 cm plus greater control over depth of field and a 9-blade aperture, you can capture detailed subjects with beautifully blurred backgrounds.

    The high performance G5 X features a built-in hot shoe for expanded options – it's compatible with all Speedlite flashes for the EOS System and other accessories.

    Easy framing

    A large, vari-angle 3” / 75 mm LCD screen makes it easy to compose and view images from different angles, ideal when shooting at high or low angles.

    Additionally, the PowerShot G5 X boasts a high-definition electronic viewfinder that's ideal for use in bright sunlight or for those who like to hold the camera up to their eye.

    Delivering 100% frame coverage, the 2.36 million dot viewfinder ensures a high-contrast, realistic and smooth edge-to-edge view for accurate image composition and adjustments.

    Wireless connections

    Enjoy the convenience of wireless uploading your images and videos to your PC, laptop or tablet and share them instantly via social media or email. With one-touch NFC technology, pairing the G5 X with your smart device is easy.

    Available on iOS and Android, the Canon Camera Connect app allows you to add location information to your images and can also be used for remote shooting (Android only) – ideal for group shots.

    Memory for high speed shooting

    It is important to have the right memory card for your camera. The memory card will determine how fast an image is saved and how fast an image is uploaded.

    If you're shooting high definition videos along with high resolution images then it's best to invest in a high performance memory card. A high performance memory card will get the best out of your photography, ensuring the best continuous shooting speed and high quality data capture.
