Canon PowerShot G1 X Point & Shoot - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Canon has announced its latest compact camera, the Canon PowerShot G1 X. As opposed to the expectations the camera supports no interchangeable lens system inspite of having a large sensor size. The new PowerShot G1 X goes into a completely different league with a sensor size of 18.7mm X 14mm being just 20 percent short of the APS-C sensor. Owing to the large sized sensor, the ISO sensitivity of this camera has shot upto 12800, not seen in majority of the cameras of its league. Sporting a 14.3 megapixel sensor, this camera although priced high might inspire amateurs to click beautiful images with the DIGIC 5 image processor. It has a royal black body with fine finishing and perfect grip with a huge vari-angle LCD screen and optical view finder. It also has an all new 28-112mm f/2.8-5.8 lens with f2.8-f/16 aperture range (total, f2.8-f5.8 max), HS System Image stabilization and 14 bit RAW files. It also haa an orientation sensor however lacking a GPS.


Design and Build Quality

Being quite similar to G12 in body design, the PowerShot G1 X does surely offer some changes in the all black metallic body design. It has an exposure dial with limits of +/- 3 at increments of 1/3 stop on the upper right hand side, dedicated video recording button close to the thumb rest,  a dedicated pop out flash with a dedicated pop out button. The auto flash can be adjusted to Auto, on, off or slow synchro mode. It is easy and firm to hold, thanks to the rubberised handgrip and thumbrest.The flash range is 7m and it also has a Hot-shoe external flash. A little above the handgrip is a control dial which can be used to change the aperture in the Av mode or shutter in the Tv mode and controls shutter by default. The other circular control dial is found around the navigation pad which is surrounded by four buttons-metering control button , menu, AF area selection point and auto-exposure lock. The review button is on the right hand side of the viewfinder.  The 3-inch articulated LCD is held by a notch in all positions. The Canon PowerShot G1 X measures 116.7mm x 80.5mm x 64.7mm and weighs only  492gms.


Focus and Face Detection

Sporting a 14.3 megapixel image capture device, the Canon PowerShot G1 X has a 4X digital zoom with TTL autofocus system and focussing range of 1.3 ft. (40cm) - infinity (W), 4.3 ft.

Lens and Image Stabilization

Having a large sensor the GX1 sure does have a compact lens with f/2.8 aperture and 28-112mm (4x zoom) effective optical range. However, the Macro area isn't nearly as good. The lens uses Ultra high refractive index Aspherical (UA) elements and shows precision in glass moulding technology thus helping it achievings both a compact size and pin-sharp clarity. It has a 4-stop optical Image Stabilizer (IS) for better clarity and HD shooting and also allows you to shoot in dim light. The optical Image Stabilizer is supported by Intelligent IS to analyse the focal length, distance and type of camera movement. The lens also has an in-built 3-stop Neutral Density (ND) Filter, allowing the use of wider apertures in bright light to achieve a shallower depth of field.
