      DiG!C 7

      Canon’s next generation DIGIC 7 adds substantially improved image processing power and enables super-fast AF speeds and 8 fps RAW continuous shooting, reducing noise and helping you capture the most fleeting of moments. For assured, responsive shooting, improved subject detection ensures the camera locks onto subjects even when saturation and contrast are low. The EOS-like Auto Lighting Optimizer also improves contrast by providing natural correction while maintaining balanced brightness and darkness.

      Whether shooting landscapes at sunrise or a city at sunset, the camera offers improved low light performance. When combined with the bright f/1.8-2.8 lens, the 1.0 type CMOS sensor and DIGIC 7’s new imaging capabilities provide greater flexibility to shoot in the trickiest conditions, even at full zoom.

      When you’re shooting on the go with no time to stand still, improved Optical Image Stabilizer with Dual Sensing IS technology significantly reduces camera shake and helps counter the impact of hand and body movement, for crisp handheld shots.

      Premium Quality Images

      The PowerShot G7X Mark II features a large 1.0-type back-illuminated, 20.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor. This larger than life sensor enables incredible image quality even in low light situations. This means better detail, even at higher ISOs, with minimal noise and distortion and, thanks to the sensor's wide cell pitch, breathtaking dynamic range. The PowerShot G7X Mark II also natively captures images in the 3:2 aspect ratio, which is the same as Canon EOS SLR cameras.

      The PowerShot G7X Mark II’s 24mm Wide-Angle 4.2x Optical Zoom lens with a focal length of 24–100mm (35mm equivalent) achieves f/1.8–f/2.8, making it one of the camera's most exciting features. The Wide-Angle lens gives your images a distinctive sweep and grandeur, capturing landscapes, cityscapes, tall buildings and wide groups of people with ease. The large f/1.8–2.8 aperture allows you to achieve shallow depth-of-field for creating portraits with beautiful, soft background blur, and incomparable Canon optical technology delivers a high performance lens enabling incredible images, even in low light. And thanks to the PowerShot G7X Mark II’s new 9-blade aperture diaphragm, blurred areas are particularly gorgeous, with subtle detail and blurred forms that appear almost completely circular.

      Movie Making Perfected

      Budding movie directors can trust the PowerShot G7 X Mark II to capture Full HD movies with impressive clarity. Full manual control gives you access to every exposure setting, letting you compose and customise every shoot to suit your style. Capturing detail in movies is made simple thanks to the improved subject tracking of DIGIC 7, capturing everything, from shifting facial expressions to sudden movement. Canon’s Dynamic Image Stabilisation works with Auto Level to correct camera shake over five axes automatically, ensuring scenes are steady and horizons straight, even when shooting on the move or at unusual angles. For capturing rapid action over a period of time, the camera includes Time-Lapse Movie mode, creating one of a kind, sped-up videos.

      Advanced Shooting Modes

      With 14-bit RAW shooting you can capture nuance in colour and portray stylistic flare as you shoot. For minimal post-editing, Pictures Style offers colour pre-sets that can be selected to suit your style, or the scene you’re capturing. Picture Style profiles are customisable and can be used across the EOS DSLR range, letting you maintain the same look and feel in every shot, whatever you’re shooting.
