Compact Design. Complete Manual Control.
The PowerShot G5 X combines uncompromising image quality from a 1.0-type back-illuminated 20.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor with the exceptional speed of a DIGIC 6 processor, all packaged into beautifully compact body. For the more advanced photographer, the PowerShot G5 X’s range of manual controls and high resolution OLED electronic viewfinder offers DSLR-like handling and maximum comfort when shooting.
Built-in Electronic Viewfinder
The PowerShot G5 X's built in 2.36 Million pixel Electronic Viewfinder, positioned perpendicular to the optical axis allows for a natural shooting experience. Maintaining a wide variety of colour gamuts and high contrast, the EVF reproduces colour with rich graduations. Shooting information automatically switches to a vertical layout when held vertically, making it possible to accurately and quickly adjust camera settings.
3.0-type vari-angle LCD screen allows for shooting at high or low angles and self-portraits. Displaying fine detail (at approximately 1.04 million dots), this screen is perfect for composing and reviewing images. Thanks to a solid construction between the monitor's resin-coated cover and the liquid crystal display, reflections are minimized, and the display can be viewed, without glare, from any number of angles.
Never go without power again. The PowerShot G5 X features with USB charging, so you can connect to your computer to charge the battery via USB. Alternatively, a standalone battery charger is supplied.
The PowerShot G5 X features a Vari-angle Touch Screen 3.0-inch ClearView II LCD monitor , with capacitive technology similar to today's popular mobile devices. The screen is touch-sensitive and delivers intuitive touch panel operation. Two-finger touch gestures can be used for zooming or changing images. Menu and quick control settings can be accessed, and focus point and shutter release can be activated with the touch of a fingertip using Touch AF. The LCD's surface is treated with a smudge-resistant coating to minimize fingerprints and maintain a bright, clear image display.
