Canon Powershot G7 X

Date:4 March 2015

Don’t let the small form factor of Canon’s new PowerShot G7 X lull you into thinking it’s only good for happy snaps – this is one serious shooter that, in many respects, offers an experience comparable to that of DSLRs. From professionallooking portraits to macro close-ups, its quality 24 mm wide-angle and bright f/1.8 – 2.8 4.2 x optical zoom lens with 9-blade aperture allows creative types to achieve beautiful background blur. When combined with its large 1.0-type sensor this pocket-sized camera excels in low light – providing users with the flexibility to capture images confidently with vividly realistic colours and low noise, even at ISO 12 800. And, thanks to the responsiveness and superior speed of DIGIC 6, Canon’s most powerful image processor to date, it has a continuous shooting rate of 6,5 fps.

Its fast autofocus system includes 31 focus points that can be conveniently changed via the camera’s large rear tilt-up touchscreen. Other cool features include 5-axis intelligent image stabilisation, Full HD video capture, Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity and a customisable Lens Control Ring to control critical photographic settings.

Price: about R6 000.
