Never worry about missing the moment again! The Canon Powershot G9 X has everything you need to get the shot you want with its slim compact body, the convenient pocket-size  allowing you to photograph discreetly.

Being in Control

Photography enthusiasts who want to focus on creating quality images can do just that with its easy controls. Fiddling with buttons are a thing of the past with the touch screen focusing, which makes it a joy to experiment with interesting compositions. The quick menu on the back also makes changing settings like exposure compensation and Drive mode extremely easy and fuss-free. The camera body features leather-like trims on the sides, adding a polished touch to the overall design, and control freaks will surely appreciate the added firm thumb grip.

Getting Up Close

The biggest advantage of using a compact camera that does not compromise on image quality is that you can get up close to photograph raw emotions. Paired with the bright LED display, this is certainly a tool that lets you manoeuvre through the crowd to shoot from interesting perspectives.

Made to Impress

The Powershot G9 X comes in both classic black and classic silver with tanned brown trim (pictured). With a 1.0’’ CMOS sensor, this camera is ideal for photographers looking to travel light and still produce excellent images, which can be quickly shared to social networks using its built-in Wi-Fi connectivity feature.

For astrophotography enthusiasts, this camera also boasts a Star Mode, enabling you to shoot beautiful star trails. This is where its low-light capabilities really shine through.
