POINT AND SHOOT

Title

The bestselling PowerShot G7 X, which packed a large sensor within a sleek, compact body, now has a new, improved second-generation model. It features the new DIGIC 7 image processor, which not only enhances the look of photos taken in low light conditions but also enables a more natural depiction of contrast in backlit scenes, resulting in shots that have high apparent resolution. The AF has vastly improved tracking performance, allowing more accurate capture of important subjects. There are also new shooting modes such as “Panning”, “Time-lapse movie” and “Short Clip (Movie)” which makes it easy to shoot photos and movies that would otherwise require knowledge of difficult techniques. Not just more pictures, but more beautiful pictures—indeed, that’s the beauty of this improved premium compact camera.
