|About - Canon PowerShot G1 X|
The PowerShot G1 X is a 14-megapixel camera with 4x optical zoom and has a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28mm-112mm. It has a 3-inch LCD (922,000 pixels). It also includes an optical viewfinder, which is helpful when composing in bright light.
Because it does not accept interchangeable lenses, we consider this model an advanced point-and-shoot.
The camera has a maximum aperture of f/2.8. The camera's shutter speed range is 60 seconds to 1/4000 of a second.
The PowerShot G1 X stores photos and video on SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards but has no on-board storage. It captures images as JPG or RAW files at a top resolution of 4352 x 3264 and full HD-resolution video as MOV files at a top resolution of 1920 x 1080.
Like most digital cameras, this model comes with a proprietary rechargeable battery.
This advanced point-and-shoot has 9 autofocus points. It also includes 4 flash modes (for the on-board flash), 17 exposure modes, and an exposure compensation control that can be set at +/-3 EV. The image stabilization system for this camera is lens-based.
The PowerShot G1 X measures 4.7 inches wide by 3.3 inches high by 3 inches deep, and weighs 20 ounces (1.2 pounds) (with battery, memory card, and strap).
|About This Brand|
Canon is the market leader in point-and-shoots, with an extensive line of models, which are known as PowerShots. Its budget line, the A series, is made up of compacts and subcompacts. Canon's subcompacts are known as SD ELPHs. Its SX-series are mostly super zooms and come in various sizes and include smaller or larger feature sets. Canon has the D-series compact, which it claims are waterproof and shockproof. Its high-end series, the S and G lines, include special modes and manual features, such as the ability to shoot RAW files and to focus manually. The EOS Rebel series helped to define budget SLRs. Other SLRs include a host of pro and more-advanced consumer models, including models that have very large, full-frame sensors. Canon also offers a wider selection of lenses than most brands.
