Product Highlights

    The Mark of PowerShot Excellence
    The all–new PowerShot flagship, the PowerShot G1 X Mark II raises performance and quality to new heights in a compact, brilliant design. Featuring a huge, 1.5–inch 12.8 Megapixel High–Sensitivity CMOS sensor, a powerful DIGIC 6 Image Processor and an all–new 5x wide–angle optical zoom lens with Optical Image Stabilizer and a circular, 9–blade aperture for stunning blurred backgrounds, the PowerShot G1 X Mark II delivers the outstanding image quality you would expect with a digital SLR camera but in a portable, Wi–Fi® and NFC enabled package.

    It can capture 14–bit RAW plus JPEG images, features a staggering 31 focus points for speedy and accurate AF, a capacitive 3.0–inch tilt–type touch panel LCD and has newly developed Dual Control Rings on the lens barrel for fast control of exposure and focus. An optional high–resolution electronic viewfinder adds to the camera's professional feel and functionality. Whether being used as a companion to an EOS digital SLR or as a standalone camera, the PowerShot G1 X Mark II has the power to handle most any photographic situation it encounters.

Details from Canon

    Canon 1.5–inch, 12.8 Megapixel High–Sensitivity CMOS Sensor
    Almost as large as the APS–C CMOS sensor found in many EOS digital SLRs, and bigger than those found in 4/3 system cameras, the PowerShot G1 X Mark II's sensor sets the standard for sensitivity and resolving power in compact cameras. Each cell area is 4.5x the size of those found in 1/1.7 type sensors and is thus able to capture more light at the pixel level. 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 G1 X Mark II camera natively captures images in the 3:2 aspect ratio, which is the same as Canon EOS SLR cameras. The PowerShot G1 X Mark II also features a new Aspect Ratio function, enabling RAW image capture in both 3:2 and 4:3 aspect ratios while maintaining the same angle of view.

    Canon DIGIC 6 Image Processor
    The PowerShot G1 X Mark II camera is equipped with the very latest Canon proprietary processor, the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, which makes several important advancements to image quality both in stills and video. Improved light sensitivity allows for higher resolution with less noise when shooting in dark conditions, and Dynamic IS now detects and compensates for tilt and parallel movement (shift blur) to create video that's exceptionally free of distortion. The DIGIC 6 Image Processor also enhances the performance capabilities of the PowerShot G1 X Mark II, powering full resolution high–speed continuous still shooting and the advanced Star shooting modes. Video recording has also been improved with MP4 recording for better compatibility with mobile devices and tablets. Highly compressed MP4 video not only preserves space on your memory card but also improves playback on mobile devices. Plus, with MF Peaking possible thanks to the new processor, you'll have a pro–level focusing tool at your disposal.

    Canon HS SYSTEM
    The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you take bright, clear photos in an even wider range of shooting situations. Beautiful low–light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies in the PowerShot G1 X Mark II: the amazing 1.5–inch High–Sensitivity CMOS imaging sensor, which is able to capture more light; and the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, which actively reduces noise at high ISO speeds and processes images at high speed, even at full resolution. Thus, the Canon HS SYSTEM allows you to use higher shutter speeds to capture clearer images with reduced noise and blur in more situations.

    5x Optical Zoom plus a new f/2.0 – f/3.9, 24mm Wide–Angle lens with Optical Image Stabilizer
    Developed specifically for the PowerShot G1 X Mark II, this large aperture lens offers the highest specifications for any camera in this class, and incorporates dramatic improvements on all fronts based upon the feedback of PowerShot G1 X users. It offers a 5x zoom factor with a 24–120mm equivalent range that's perfect for any number of shooting scenarios, and it has an incredibly bright aperture value of f/2.0 at wide angle and f/3.9 fully zoomed. It has a newly designed inner focusing system which enables fast AF speed with minimal lens movement, a reduced focusing distance of 5cm, features 14 elements in 11 groups and has a 9–blade aperture diaphragm for beautiful background blur. Engineered to perform and deliver gorgeous images every time, it's the perfect lens for the PowerShot G1 X Mark II camera's amazing sensor. And, in response to the overwhelming requests from PowerShot G1 X users, it has an integral lens cap.

    Optical Image Stabilizer
    Handheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos and videos blurry. Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens–shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement. It makes handheld photography more practical in more shooting situations, providing excellent image quality in many difficult situations: outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash, and even at the telephoto end of the zoom range without a tripod. For still photos, it enables shooting at slower shutter speeds, accommodating more low–light shooting situations than ever before without having to boost ISO sensitivity. With camera shake and vibration reduced, you get a sharper, steadier image. And because it is an optical system, there is none of the image degradation typical with electronic image stabilizers.

    Built–in Wi–Fi®
    The PowerShot G1 X Mark II is equipped with built–in Wi–Fii® technology for convenient sharing and transferring of your still images and video. Easily post your images to social networking and media sites – Facebook®, Twitter®, YouTube™, Flickr® and now Google Drive™ – through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY# directly from your PowerShot camera, or save them to the online photo album to share anytime, anywhere. The camera can also connect directly to both iOS® and Android™ devices*, and upload images via the free Canon CameraWindow app** without a computer. You can control the destination of your uploads to share with everyone or to selected groups, and even add comments. Sharing video is also easy with the PowerShot G1 X Mark II, which records video using the MP4 format with minimal file size. Enhanced Wi–Fi® makes posting in real time possible, so you can keep everyone up to date with amazing photos and video even as events unfold. The built–in Wi–Fi® technology on the PowerShot G1 X Mark II also allows you to transfer images to other Wi–Fi® equipped PowerShot cameras or print your photos directly to a PictBridge (Wireless LAN) certified printer.

    Remote Shooting
    With the built–in Wi–Fi® on the PowerShot G1 X Mark II, you can use your smartphone or tablet* to remotely control the camera. Simply connect wirelessly to your device and access the free Canon CameraWindow app**. Your device will show a live image of the camera's capture for easy composition – perfect for wildlife and nighttime shots, group photos and all kinds of situations. The camera's versatile zoom, flash, self–timer and shutter are all under your control, with images being saved to your camera as usual.

    Built–in NFC (Near Field Communication)
    The PowerShot G1 X Mark II camera supports NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, eliminating the need to find and open the Canon CameraWindow app* on your mobile device. Simply touch the NFC icon on your camera to your compatible Android device**, and the CameraWindow app will launch automatically for remote shooting and quick, easy sharing of your images. Built–in NFC technology also makes it simpler to install the app. If the app hasn't been installed yet, once you touch the devices together for the first time, the download screen will display automatically.

    Canon Full HD Video Advantage
    Preserving your important memories and creative film clips in stunning quality is easy with Full HD recording on the PowerShot G1 X Mark II camera and its dedicated movie button. With the camera's advanced DIGIC 6 Image Processor, the camera records Full HD video in MP4 that is breathtaking even when played back on a large–screen HDTV via the camera's HDMI output.
