When it comes to the features of this model, the camera is loaded with all attributes that would please a professional photographer as well as photography enthusiasts. Being a professional point and shoot camera, this is feature-packed with all the necessary controls for manual and semi-manual modes. However, all of the above mentioned points are not the main feature of the camera. The chief attribute of the Canon PowerShot G1 X is the fact that it features a sensor size that measures at 1.5-inches. This is by far the largest sensor found on a compact point and shoot, in fact, it is larger than a Micro Four Thirds sensor as well and sits just below Canon’s APS-C range used on their DSLR cameras.
Very large point and shoot camera
With this 14.1MP sensor, along with the brand’s latest DIGIC 5 imaging processor, one can aim to get DSLR-like images and this all comes down to the fact that it uses a large sensor. As of now, there are no additional lenses available for the G1 X, and the brand has used a non-removable 4x optical zoom lens on this model, which on a 35mm film equivalent is 28 - 112mm. The aperture of this model ranges from f/2.8 to f/16 and with this wide aperture, one can expect a significant amount of light to hit the lens in low light shots. Alternatively one can easily focus on a subject and achieve a fair amount of depth of field as well. The Canon camera also comes with lens-shift image stabilization, which helps in negating blur from images.
The camera features a high-resolution 3-inch screen at the rear, which sports a resolution of approximately 922,000 dots. This is becoming the new standard resolution of camera displays and resolutions below this look insufficient in providing the detail required. The optical viewfinder featured on the camera is crisp as well and it features a lot of detail. However, it does not provide 100 percent coverage.
