With a 4x zoom lens and a novel 14.1 MP 1.5-inch CMOS sensor, the Canon Power Shot G1 X Kit features the best possible technology that a digital camera can boast to deliver high quality images. It is built to be compact, without compromising on looks and utility. The camera always operates fluently and efficiently, because of its modern DIGIC 5 image processor. However, the rest of its fascinating features and controls must also be given due importance, as they all contribute together in enhancing the performance of the G1 X. Most of all, the camera is extremely popular for its high resolution images and videos.
Optic and Focus
Compromising on quality and resolution with grainy images is now a thing of the past. With the 16x combined zoom lens, separated into a 4x optical zoom and a 4x digital zoom, the camera delivers incredible clarity and precision with unbelievably consistency. Its focal length of 15.1 (W) – 60.4 (T) covers wide expansive views with tremendous regularity. Another magnificent feature of the camera is its f/2.8 (W) – f/5.8 (T) aperture range. Furthermore, with a 100 – 12,800 ISO speed and an in-built flash, this camera literally pulls out all the stops to satiate the appetite of its users.
Without a vestige of doubt, the most striking property of the camera is its 14.1 MP 1.5-inch CMOS sensor, which is as yet unprecedented in the field of camera sensor engineering. Due to this highly advanced sensor, the camera clear images with accurate pixel ratios, irrespective of whatever the external scenario might be. Even low light, traffic or crowd noise, and gusty winds do not affect the camera's output, since the sensor is impervious to low lighting and it also effectively suppresses any unwanted noise. The Power Shot G1 X also boasts of a variable angle 3-inch LCD screen with TFT color expertise and a gargantuan 922,000 dot ratio, for tremendous playback clarity.
Image and Video
Your shooting methods get a major thrust in the departments of power and speed, because of Canon's newest and highly efficient DIGIC 5 image processor. What you are left with are brilliantly detailed images with the most remarkable precision and clarity ever seen. This image processor also successfully does away with all kinds of cumbersome light systems that were earlier required as external sources to improve the image quality. All kinds of noise is also eradicated with the DIGIC 5. The processor is also reactive enough to handle large amounts of ISO speeds without the output being affected even in the slightest manner.
Some other striking characteristics of the Canon Power Shot G1 X Kit consist of its intelligent IS feature that selects the best image stabilization from six different modes. The camera also blends fluently with Canon Speedlite flashes for extra imaginative lighting techniques. Other unique features include its mode dial and front dial controls for smart and quick manual modification. The Canon GX 1 also has a high dynamic range that merges various shots into a single image for better clarity.
