Features

1.0-inch, 20.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor with Canon' new DIGIC 7 Image Processor helps deliver outstanding image quality even in low light.

1.0-inch, 20.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor
The PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera features a large 1.0-inch, 20.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor that helps capture high-quality images and videos. Its wide dynamic range helps ensure both bright and dark parts of an image are fully captured, like the shadowy side of a building on a bright sunny day, or streetlights on a dark night. 20.1 Megapixels means photos with enough detail to print, or enjoy on high-resolution monitors and mobile devices. It also gives additional flexibility during editing, giving you the option of cropping in on your subject for improved composition while still having a detailed, high-resolution image. Smooth gradations from light to dark keeps unrealistic banding in solid colors to a minimum. Thanks to an available ISO of up to 12800 (expandable to 25600) and the power of the new DIGIC 7 Image Processor, extremely low-light photos and videos are possible, with minimal image noise. Using a high ISO also allows for a faster shutter speed, which lowers the possibility of blur caused by excessive hand-held camera shake. For added flexibility, both JPEG and RAW images can be captured and saved.

DIGIC 7 Image Processor
The new DIGIC 7 Image Processors enhanced tracking and detection capabilities help keep subjects in focus, while ensuring each image has a high level of sharpness and minimum picture noise. Whether youre capturing a fast-moving athlete or a feisty puppy, the DIGIC 7 Image Processor in the PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera can stay locked on throughout the action. Improved face tracking helps keep your friend or family member the subject of the photo. Even in extreme cases, like in low saturation or low-light dusk, dawn or darkened interior moments, the DIGIC 7 Image Processor helps keep what youre photographing in focus. It also features the new Dual Sensing IS, which uses data from the image itself to help minimize the blur caused by camera shake and body movement. This results in clear, precise pictures even at slow shutter speeds. All this is in addition to upgraded detail and noise reduction abilities, especially in low light with high ISO settings. Powerful all around, the DIGIC 7 Image Processor helps ensure your photos and videos look sharp and lifelike with minimal unwanted noise or grain.

Canon HS System
The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you take bright, clear photos as they happen. Beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and truly impressive detail in both highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies in the PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera: the large format 1.0-inch High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor, which captures more light; and the DIGIC 7 Image Processor, which actively reduces noise at high ISO speeds up to 12800 and processes images at high speed, even at full resolution. Experience the freedom of using higher shutter speeds in far more situations, allowing you to capture images with outstanding clarity and detail.

Features a bright f/1.8 (W)-f/2.8 (T), 4.2x (24-100mm), 9-blade iris diaphragm and IS-equipped lens.

4.2x, f/1.8 (W)  f/2.8 (T) Optical Zoom Lens (24100mm)
The remarkable lens on the PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera takes full advantage of the camera's large sensor, giving your photography a wide range of expression. With a bright aperture value of f/1.8 at the wide angle and f/2.8 when fully zoomed to a factor of 4.2x (24100mm), this lens not only puts more in your frame, but is equipped to capture an incredible variety of situations with artistry and precision. Equipped with a 9-blade iris diaphragm, the lens lets you achieve a beautiful background defocus with shapes that are nearly round. Capture macro shots from as close as 2.0 in. (telephoto at 1.3 ft.). From a design perspective, each of the 11 glass lenses on the PowerShot G7 X Mark II has a multi-layer coating on it, which is similar to the Super Spectra Coating technology developed by Canon for EF lenses. These coatings have features like a high transmission factor, ultraviolet protection, resistant surface hardness, and stable characteristics. The coating also maximizes suppression of unwanted reflected light from ghosting or flaring to deliver clear images with high image quality.

Intelligent IS
Equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS, the PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera helps you capture clear, steady images  even in low light without using a tripod. The system automatically analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation  allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. For stills, the system selects from Normal IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Active Tripod IS modes. Icons clearly mark the image stabilization mode, whether you're shooting still images or video.

Still Image Shooting
Normal IS

Corrects for a wide range of camera movement when shooting stills.

Panning IS
Panning motion is detected so that IS does not interfere with desired camera movement.

Macro (Hybrid) IS
Corrects for shift-type camera shake, which typically occurs in macro (close-up) shooting.

Tripod
When tripod use is detected, the Image Stabilizer is stopped because it is not needed.

Video Recording
Dynamic IS

Effective for video shooting at wide-angle focal lengths, eliminating the unwanted shaking that typically occurs while walking.

Powered IS
Compensates for hand movement when shooting video at the telephoto end of the zoom range, where camera shake is magnified.

Macro (Hybrid) IS
Corrects for motion blur that is likely to occur when shooting video while walking. Also compensates for the shift-type camera shake common in macro shooting.

Active Tripod IS
When shooting video while using a tripod, the Image Stabilizer is active to compensate for slight camera shake.

Capture impressively high-resolution images with high-speed continuous shooting up to 8 fps in RAW mode, JPEG mode and RAW+JPEG mode.

When the action happens fast, the PowerShot G7 X Mark II camera can move fast with it. With the ability to shoot continuously at up to 8 fps, it can help you capture incredible images with nearly no time wasted.

The sun dropping over the horizon, boats navigating a harbor, cars twisting through streets during rush hour can all be compressed in time, while maintaining gorgeous image quality. Movement appears fast, like reality has been accelerated. Intervals of 1- to 30-seconds between photos are available.

Panning allows the camera to lock onto the main subject using IS and automatically adjust the shutter speed for beautiful background blur.

By using a slow shutter speed and Canons advanced image stabilization, the PowerShot G7 X Mark II cameras Panning mode can help you capture fast-moving subjects in an artistic and striking fashion.
