Digital Camera Description

The Canon Powershot G9 X is a Compact Digital Camera with a 1" sensor. Its 20 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 125-12800 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 125-12800. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in relatively low-light. With 20 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

A builtin Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Canon Powershot G9 X to compensate for camera shake.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/2000 to 30s. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/2000, fast action can easily be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.

Canon Powershot G9 X

The Canon Powershot G9 X features a 31-point Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. Manual Focus is also available.

A single control-dial on this camera makes it easy to use semi-automatic modes by adjusting the current exposure parameter directly This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. There is no viewfinder on the Canon Powershot G9 X and no provision to add one.
