Canon G9 X overview

  • 1Description

Pairing a sleek form factor with a large image sensor, the silver PowerShot G9 X from Canon is a pocketable compact camera featuring a 20.2MP 1" High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor. The sensor and processor combine to form the Canon HS SYSTEM for clean, clear image quality, sensitivity to ISO 12800, continuous shooting up to 6 fps and Full HD 1080p/60 movie recording. A wide-angle to portrait-length 3x zoom lens offers a 28-84mm equivalent focal length and Intelligent IS helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting in difficult lighting conditions. While slim in size, the G9 X is also characterized by a range of physical controls, a large 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD monitor, and built-in Wi-Fi with NFC for wireless image sharing and remote camera control with smartphones and tablets.

20.2MP 1" CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 6 Processor
A large 20.2MP 1" High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor combine to create the Canon HS SYSTEM, which offers enhanced low-light performance with reduced image noise, as well as a top sensitivity of ISO 12800. The sensor and processor also benefit performance speeds throughout the camera, including a top 6 fps shooting rate in one-shot AF or 4.3 fps with continuous AF. The physically large sensor and advanced processing techniques also contribute to rich image quality that is well-suited to printing applications.
3x Optical Zoom Lens
The versatile 3x optical zoom lens covers a wide-angle to portrait-length 28-84mm equivalent focal length range, and features an f/2-4.9 maximum aperture along with Intelligent IS image stabilization to benefit handheld shooting in difficult lighting conditions.
Intelligent IS
Utilizing the unique Intelligent IS image stabilization system, this camera compensates for a variety of types of camera shake by analyzing different movement types and applying specific settings to produce the sharpest imagery and smoothest movies:
  • Normal IS: Corrects for a wide variety of camera movement types when shooting stills.
  • Panning IS: Intended for use when making tracking shots, this setting ensures that IS will not interfere with desired lateral camera movements.
  • Macro (Hybrid) IS: Used for both stills and video recording, this setting corrects for shift-type camera shake that is common when photographing close-up subjects. It also compensates for motion blur associated with recording video while walking.
  • Tripod: Image stabilization is deactivated when shooting stills atop a tripod.
  • Dynamic IS: This setting is effective when recording video using wider focal lengths and simultaneously walking or moving.
  • Powered IS: Ideally suited for shooting video with telephoto focal lengths, this mode compensates for the camera movements that become more apparent with greater zoom magnifications.
  • Active Tripod IS: Unlike the stills tripod mode, this video-specific tripod mode compensates for slight amounts of shake that can be caused when recording movies from a tripod.
Body Design and Built-In Wi-Fi
  • For live view monitoring and image playback, a 3.0" LCD screen is available and features a touchscreen design for intuitive settings control and menu navigation.
  • A physical control ring permits easily accessible, direct control over various shooting settings as well as manual focus control.
  • The pocket-sized form factor is ideal for carrying with you at all times.
  • Customizable menus let you prioritize your most oft-used settings for faster, easier access.
Full HD Video Recording
In addition to stills shooting, Full HD 1080p video recording is possible in multiple frame rates, including 60, 30, and 24 fps. Movies are saved in the MP4 format and an HDMI port permits direct, high definition playback and live monitoring on external screens. Audio quality has been enhanced thanks to a wider dynamic range and better signal-to-noise ratio and for greater control during recording, access to manual exposure modes is available. Additionally, focus peaking can be used for faster, more intuitive manual focusing.
Built-In Wi-Fi with NFC
Both photos and movies can be wirelessly shared to smartphones or tablets, using the Canon Camera Connect app, for instant online sharing or backed up to the Canon Connect Station CS100 via built-in Wi-Fi with NFC connectivity. Remote shooting from a linked mobile device is also available, allowing you to wirelessly configure exposure modes, aspect ratios, AF frame modes, or drive modes. In addition to the touch-to-connect functionality of NFC, a dedicated mobile device connect button is also integrated into the camera's design for seamless pairing of the camera to a device for browsing and sharing imagery.
Other Camera Features
  • Dedicated Star Modes and functions can be used to capture photos and videos of the nighttime sky with enhanced brilliance and clarity. Star Nightscape, Star Trails, and Star Time-Lapse Movies can be recorded, with auto or manual settings, and support functions, such as Night Display, Color Adjustment, and Star Emphasis, offer greater control over the final results.
  • A built-in pop-up flash can be used to provide additional illumination to a scene when working in challenging lighting conditions.
  • The included NB-13L rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to 220 shots per charge when working with the LCD screen or 335 shots per charge in the ECO Mode.
  • An electronic level function helps to ensure plumb verticals and level horizons.

Canon G9 X reviews

PowerShot G9 X Digital Camera (Silver) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from ASTRONOMY LOVER = CANON G9X I can't say enough good things about this camera. The camera itself is sturdy, durable, light weight and user friendly. I would definitely recommend a tripod for capturing the starry skies, as with any camera! the results from the G9X are absolutely breathtaking. Even in cloudy conditions this little gem was able to bring out details that I would never imagine to see! The different shooting features such as soft focus and back ground de focus have been common favs as well for portrait like shots of my children. All in all very portable and easy to use, I would buy this camera again in a heart beat. Love my canon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot to like in a very stylish and super compact camera! While I haven't had the camera long enough to learn about or use all the functions, I'm very impressed with its wide range of capabilities so far. As someone who has always had trouble with digital cameras that don't seem to focus, this one is amazing in that regard. I shot an old rock concert poster last night as a test, then zoomed into the fine print at bottom, and it was totally clear and legible. Also the Wi-Fi transfer of images capability to my PC at home is impressive (and that's why the package doesn't include a cable for that purpose). This camera was recommended by a customer service and tech support specialist at B&H and I'm really glad I took his advice. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pro-Photographer's pocket camera Bought this as a gift for my parents. I'm a professional photographer and am very impressed with the image clarity, sharpness and color. Love the low aperture and that this camera works well without a flash in low light. (and doesn't force you to use the flash in low issue with other point and shoots I've seen in the past) This will be an easy came for them to use and the touch screen is such a wonderful feature! I would use this camera as a fun pocket camera to carry when I don't need my large DSLR. 4 stars as I know there are more expensive options out there, but for the price I would be surprised if there's a better option!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silver version has beautiful retro design To me Canon engineering made right compromises to shrink the size of camera while incorporating bigger sensor. I also like Canon's emphasis on product engineering and finish, it is a delight to look at and hold the camera. My only qualm is the choice of cheesy black lanyard that came with the camera, it looks like someone outside the original team made the decision for the lanyard. Like I mentioned earlier, camera is such delight to hold that I'll be replacing the lanyard with Cognac colored leather one. As for the photo quality, of course it's great for a point and shoot. If I need anything more capable I'll use my SLR.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Truly pocketable I picked up the G9X for the benefit of having a truly pocketable camera with a 1 sensor and Canon color. In comparison to cameras like the G7X or the Sony RX100 series, this camera isn't as heavy/bulky as they are. While those can fit in your pocket, they're still too thick to really be pocktable. The G9X is actually pocketable. A little more than half the thickness of an RX100, and with a similar sized sensor. The downsides are no EVF or titlting LCD, but given the price and that the whole idea of this camera is the small form factor, it's understandable. I wouldn't recommend the G9X for video, necessarily. Though it does shoot 60p video, you're limited to 10 minute clips. Lower frame rates can do the usual 29:59 clips. Overall, a solid little camera for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm very happy with it! The image quality of this camera is amazing considering how small it is. It is so easy to keep with me and it is a pleasure to use. I have a DSLR, but I can already tell that most of my future photographs will be taken with this camera. The zoom is only 3X, but that is expected considering the camera size. Overall, I am very pleased with the features, the very small size, and especially the image quality. It even takes great photos in low light. Great quality product and I'm amazed at the technology that went into it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Camera I just traded 'down' from a 10 year old Nikon 5000 with a telephoto lens that I used to shot sports photos of my kids. I liked the Nikon but carrying that big camera and lens meant that I rarely used the camera once my kids finished their youth athletics phase. So I hunted for a small but solid replacement and the Canon PowerShot G9X was the one I chose after much research. I just returned from a weeks vacation in which I took over 200 photos and I am very impressed with the camera. It has all the features I need and in a small enough package that I can carry it in my front pocket without any issue. Not much more to say than I am very pleased with the camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really love it What I like most about this camera is the image quality. It gives you an extremely low noise at 3200 4000 and even 6400. You can shoot indoor mostly with no flash and still get very good images. I found out that in tends to shoot at low speed when in auto mode, but you can easily overcome it by selecting speed mode.
