This November, Canon brings to the Philippines the newest model from its PowerShot G series line of premium digital compact cameras. The G9 X features the latest Canon imaging technology and comes with a large 1.0″ 20.2MP CMOS sensor that renders higher sensitivity for superior image quality.

The PowerShot G X’s camera sports a new optimized button layout on the user interface. The touch screen complements the control ring around the lens for easy adjustments of camera settings such as ISO speed, aperture, and focus.

“The PowerShot G9 X is a powerful yet convenient everyday camera perfect for Filipinos who are style conscious and love to snap images all the time,” said Canon Marketing Philippines, Inc. Director for Consumer Group Vinchy Sanchez. “They can capture stunning images and HD videos with ease anytime as Canon imprints in it its imaging expertise.”

With an image quality approaching the EOS line of DSLR cameras, the powerful high sensitivity CMOS sensor along with proprietary DIGIC 6 image processor creates the G9 X’s  high-sensitivity (HS) system, providing you with a high performance point-and-shoot camera that works in varied lighting conditions. The high ISO speed of 12800 produces expressive images with beautiful contrast and crisp details even when shooting in low light situations.

The PowerShot G9 X uses a 28-84mm (35mm equivalent) 3x optical zoom lens providing the casual user with sufficient coverage in varied shooting scenarios. This versatile range covers wide-angle shots for group photography, in tight, enclosed spaces and telephoto range to get closer to distant subjects. The circular 9-blade composition and large aperture of f/2.0 on the PowerShot G9 X enables beautiful bokeh effects in macro photography.

With a streamlined compact design and weighing approximately 209g, the pocket-sized PowerShot G9 X is the lightest and most compact camera in the PowerShot G series range to date. Reminiscent of classic cameras with bold lines, the leather-like trim frame the sides of the camera, emphasizing contrast in surface details while providing a firm grip when shooting.

The simplicity of its design carries over to its operability, with a control ring to complement the touch panel. Between these two elements, a user can easily control the camera settings and make adjustments quickly and efficiently.

Adept at creative avenues of expressions, the camera is equipped with movie editing functions for richer storytelling with the ability to record 1080p Full HD videos at 24p and up to 60p in MP4 format.
