Canon starts sales of PowerShot G1 X Mark II digital camera

The famous maker of digital cameras and other devices Canon has started the sales of a new high-end compact camera that goes by the brand name of PowerShot G1 X Mark II. The camera looks a lot like the older PowerShot G1 X but comes with a longer lens.

The new camera by Canon has enough technology to impress every digital camera fan. It comes with a large 1.5-inch type CMOS sensor that is about 4.5 times larger than the size of 1/1.7-inch type sensors that can be found in other compact cameras. There’s also a new and powerful large aperture lens (f/2.0-3.9) that comes with 5x zoom lens (24-120mm equivalent) – developed by Canon specifically for this camera.

“It features the best we have to offer among all our compact cameras, delivering unparalleled superior images equivalent to that of an interchangeable lens camera,” said Joseph Vincent Sanchez, imaging communications products division head.

The PowerShot G1 X Mark II offers minimum focal distance of 5 centimeters and the latest 9-blade aperture diaphragm for a soft background blur effect. All images then get processed by the company’s high end DIGIC 6 imaging processor. Users also get a 3-inch LCD display, ISO 100-12800 and a 31-point autofocus system. Finally there’s NFC, Wi-Fi, a SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot, USB 2.0 and HDMI.

The Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II will be yours for USD 904.
