Compact Design with DSLR-Style Handling

With the exceptional imaging capability of a 1.0-inch, back-illuminated 20.2MP CMOS sensor and the powerful speed of a DIGIC 6 processor, the Canon PowerShot G5X is as substantial as it is stylishly compact. Impressive features, DSLR-like handling, manual controls and 14-bit RAW file support cater for more advanced shooters, while intelligent automatic modes and easy-to-use menus put stunning results within reach of beginners.

Ultra-Bright Lens with 4.2x Optical Zoom

Featuring a maximum aperture of f/1.8-2.8, the ultra-bright zoom lens on the Canon G5X captures pictures with brilliant sharpness and gorgeous background blur, even in dimmer lighting conditions. 4.2x optical zoom (equivalent to 24-100mm) provides the scope and the reach to shoot everything from sweeping landscapes to intimate portraits.

Full HD Movies

Capture life in motion and full high definition. The Canon G5X records 1080p video at 60 fps, allowing you to film beautifully true-to-life movie footage. Better still, manual movie mode gives you full creative control over aperture, shutter speed and ISO. 

New Creative Possibilities

Realise new creative possibilities with unique shooting tools such as enhanced Star Mode (for stunning star portraits, star trails and evening time-lapses) and Handheld HDR for capturing scenes with high dynamic range, tripod-free.

Built-in EVF

Keep your eyes on the action thanks to the Canon G5X’s large, responsive 2.36 million-dot electronic viewfinder (EVF), centrally positioned to provide a natural and immersive shooting experience. The EVF reproduces colours, tones and contrast with high fidelity and automatically changes the orientation of information in its display to suit horizontal or vertical shooting.

Vari-Angle Touchscreen Functionality

The Canon G5X’s 3.0-inch vari-angle touchscreen monitor makes it easy to shoot from unique angles, capture self-portraits and operate the camera’s settings. With the tap or swipe of your finger you can quickly and intuitively select autofocus points, activate the shutter and review your photos.

Wireless Shooting & Sharing

Through the Canon Camera Connect app you can wirelessly and effortlessly share your favourite images, shoot remotely (so you can appear in group shots or take selfies), and track your travels with GPS data from your linked smartphone.
