Key features – PowerShot G9 X Mark II

Intelligent DIGIC 7 delivers on-point performance

The new DIGIC 7 image processor delivers high precision tracking performance and allows for touch detection of image subjects. In addition the DIGIC 7 image processor also makes continuous shooting of 8.1 fps possible, making it effortless for users to track and capture fast moving subjects and pick the ideal image from the continuous shots taken.

The 3x large aperture zoom lens (24-84mm (35 mm equivalent)) assures high image clarity in varied shooting situations, even in low-light conditions.

The DIGIC 7 image processor also underpins the enhancement of image quality on the new PowerShot G9 X Mark II, even at high ISO speeds. At ISO 1600, edge noise is suppressed to the equivalence at ISO 800, thus maintaining excellent resolution and higher level of image clarity.

The newly developed dual sensing image stabilisation (IS) feature provides 3.5 stops of image stabilisation when shooting still images, reducing camera shake more effectively even when shooting in low light or night conditions. The dual sensing IS works by using two types of information processing: A gyro sensor that detects physical vibration and a new algorithm that utilises information from the image sensor to compensate for image blur.

Control and creative functions

Included on the PowerShot G9 X Mark II is the Picture Style support found in the Canon’s EOS series of cameras, with 8 pre-set styles, similar to the Canon EOS DSLR line of colour reproduction. The touch screen LCD and control ring makes it easy and more intuitive to adjust and change camera settings as the user desires. The PowerShot G9 X Mark II is now equipped with the in-camera RAW image processing feature. Batch processing of RAW files is also possible and particularly useful for shots which are sequential or in the same scene.

Connectivity and smartphone app control

Bluetooth low energy technology is also newly introduced to the PowerShot G9 X Mark II. The technology empowers seamless and automatic Wi-Fi connection between cameras to mobile devices, while ensuring low power consumption, enabling both power-efficiency and longer hours of connectivity. With Bluetooth low energy technology, users may also use their mobile devices as a remote control for shooting or playback of images, enabling users to have greater control and options.The new version of the Camera Connect smartphone app interface for remote live view shooting delivers improved usability with both the guide display of AF operations and setting display on the same screen. The new image filter function of the Camera Connect smartphone app also makes it easier to search through
