All sample photographs in this brochure are taken with the PowerShot G1 X.
It is this same resolute discipline which has lead to the creation of the PowerShot G1 X. 7 and 5 syllables for each phrase respectively. PowerShot G1 X will take you there. Pushing the limits of innovation in a camera of its size with the synergy of its new lens. and DIGIC processor.

THE NEW POWERSHOT G1 X
Created like a HAIKU – a fine.
そ 想う ぞ う 像り 力ょ く
Meeting of bright minds visions burning on shared zeal perfection is born
and blurry backgrounds in particular.”
Sensor/DIGIC Designer.“ PowerShot G1 X is the camera with the highest image quality in Canon’s history that both customers and Canon’s development team have been waiting for. there was widespread acknowledgement that Canon means quality images. shooting shallow depth of field. with the 1. and low noise. with expressive depth of field. As a development team we wanted to respond. we also saw lots of comments from users saying they wondered when a “dream compact camera” with the CMOS sensor found on Canon’s digital SLR cameras would come about.”
The PowerShot G1 X takes advantage of background blurring. As with still images.
. with background blurring on par with SLR cameras has become possible. we have exhaustively pursued image quality in movies as well. Now.
DIGIC Designer. Manager
“An all-in-one model that responds to still image and movie shooting. We believe that there is great demand by advanced users who shoot creative works. General Manager Amongst high-end users. movies that have a shallow depth of field.5” type Canon original sensor. such as portrait movies. This means you can shoot high image quality movies with rich expression. However. so it is now possible to clearly shoot high image quality movies taking advantage of high resolution.
Chief Developer. As a result of the larger sensor size.”
“ In order to maintain an unchanging feel of operations. Thus. The PowerShot G1 X uses a large negative meniscus UA lens of the maximum diameter class. It is a glass-molded aspherical lens with an ultrahigh refractive index developed by Canon. When AF is added. parts that are not expressed by figures were dramatically advanced. the motor and screw were improved for faster.“ A UA lens this big is comparable to the maximum diameter class. as the lens is larger and heavier it is more difficult to move. reduced sensor noise means improved AF performance.
. and we are proud that the detection performance of face recognition works even in darkness. Manager The AF function was adjusted for the large format sensor. or distance for focusing with the same amount of focus is longer. Performance for the entire range of the zoom including the middle area is improved. more accurate lens control. and contributes significantly to size reduction and higher performance of cameras. However. Manager UA stands for Ultra high refractive index Aspherical lens. the stroke of the focus lens. so there is absolutely no loss of precision due to it being larger.”
the range of photographic expression broadens dramatically. and bare functional beauty looks stylish. Design Center I made it a challenge to give the impression of change with just a quick glance. We always want to offer the best result to users that want to challenge manual operations and various expressions.cut design with unnecessary waste removed. “professional’s tool” with no waste. and bare functionality.
Designer. The PowerShot G1 X has the appeal of total balance. it has been very popular within the company from the start. I was aiming for a simple. However. The new PowerShot G1 X was developed as a different lineup aimed at high-end users who demand even higher image quality. I think this is because it is the most creative and challenging camera.” “ High performance stimulates imagination.“ I think the clear. without a doubt we have achieved image quality of a different dimension. With the implementation of the large format sensor in particular. thus.”
Product Planner “Compact with the best image quality” is the mission of the G series.
. The concept I pursued was for a feeling of authenticity that a professional would not be ashamed to have as a sub camera. and shoot even better photos. the G series is not only limited to designers.

COUNT ON THE HS SYSTEM TO RULE OVER THE MOST CHALLENGING LIGHTING CONDITIONS.3 Megapixel Canon CMOS sensor incorporates advanced light reception technology that enhances sensitivity and captures more light. the Canon HS SYSTEM lets you use higher shutter speeds to capture clearer images with reduced noise and blur. The new DIGIC 5 Image Processor provides a major boost in active noise reduction with high-speed image processing. expanding the usable ISO range to an incredible ISO 12800.
HS System advances with larger sensor and DIGIC 5
Noise reduction and white balance Newly designed Canon lens maximizes performance progresses dramatically
. DIGIC 5 further enhances the power of the HS SYSTEM for exceptional image quality in these three main areas:
