DSLR like performance. PowerShot portability. Canon's crown jewel of compacts, the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Digital Camera, boasts the best imaging performance ever seen in a Canon compact camera, making it the perfect addition to your camera bag. Without a doubt, a photographers camera, Canon developed a 12.8 MP high sensitivity large format CMOS sensor and fast f/2.0 zoom lens making the PowerShot G1 X Mark II the latest, most advanced and highest quality high performance camera yet! With Wi-Fi, NFC and remote shooting, the G1 X Mark II can easily connect to other devices so you can share your images with ease.


DSLR-level image quality from a compact camera
The PowerShot G1 X Mark II’s large 1.5-type sensor has a surface area similar to APS-C, measuring 18.7 x 14.0mm. It uses 12.8 Megapixel resolution (3:2) and Canon’s CMOS technology to deliver DSLR-like image quality. Use the Multi-aspect Sensor to capture either 12.8 MP images at 3:2 or 13.1 MP images at 4:3 aspect ratios with the same effective focal length.

Great low-light performance
The PowerShot G1 X Mark II’s 1.5-type sensor and DIGIC 6 processor ensure superb performance right up to ISO 12,800. HS System, combined with a bright f/2-3.9 lens, makes the most of available ambient light, for superb clarity and colour whatever the conditions. Intelligent IS selects the optimum optical Image Stabilizer mode from 8 options to reduce camera shake and blur.

Precision 5x zoom lens
The PowerShot G1 X Mark II features an ultra-wide angle 24mm, 5x optical zoom lens. Utilising Canon’s precision technology and advanced lens expertise for sharp, high-resolution images. Large 1.5-type sensor combined with the bright f/2-3.9, 9-bladed aperture ensures excellent subject isolation with smooth background blur.

Capturing the moment
A DIGIC 6 processor delivers fast, responsive handling, so you’ll always be ready to capture that decisive moment. High-density 31-point AiAF locks on to subjects quickly and accurately, while fine manual focus adjustments can be made using one of the camera’s Dual Control Rings, positioned around the lens barrel. Manual Focus Peaking further aids accuracy by highlighting in-focus areas.

Wireless remote shooting and Image Sync
Initiate a Wi-Fi connection between the PowerShot G1 X Mark II and a compatible smart device using the camera’s dedicated Mobile Device Connect Button or NFC. Once connected, the Canon CameraWindow app enables you to control the PowerShot G1 X Mark II wirelessly from up to 5m away. The Mobile Device Connect Button can also be assigned to Image Sync, enabling you to back up your images and movies to a registered home computer, Flickr™ and Google Drive™, via CANON iMAGE GATEWAY.

Designed just for you
Tailor the PowerShot G1 X Mark II to your own way of working. Frequently used functions can be added to a custom menu so they’re easier to find when you need them. Customisable Dual Control Rings surrounding the camera’s lens barrel can be programmed to change different settings.

Cover all angles
A high-quality LCD touch-screen, with 1,040k dot resolution, uses sRGB colour reproduction for excellent colour accuracy, image clarity and contrast. The tilt-type screen and intuitive controls make the PowerShot G1 X Mark II quick and easy to use, even when shooting at unusual angles. Equip the camera with an optional responsive electronic viewfinder for more traditional handling.

New creative possibilities
Experiment with advanced shooting modes and discover new creative possibilities. Hand-held HDR and Background Defocus modes capture multiple pictures in quick succession and merge them together for a professional-looking result. Star modes provide an easy route into capturing spectacular astrophotography.

Seamless workflow
14-bit RAW files and Canon DPP software maximise quality during post production and seamlessly integrate into your existing editing or printing workflows.
