PowerShot G9 X Mark II launched in MENA
Canon’s latest release features a large 1.0 type 20.1MP sensor, along with the company’s DIGIC 7 processor.
Canon Middle East, a provider of imaging technologies, recently launched the PowerShot G9X Mark II in the Middle East and North Africa region.
Boasting shooting speeds of up to 8.2 frames per second, the camera also comes equipped with a 1.0 type 20.1MP sensor. Coupled with Canon's DIGIC 7 processor and CMOS sensor, the PowerShot G9X Mark II is capable of taking a wide variety of HD photography through its 28mm wide angle lens with 3x optical zoom.
The camera's sensor reduces noise while also improving the dynamic range for consistent performance, regardless of the time of day, and the new Auto ND filter helps to restrict light reaching the shutter. In turn this allows for longer shutter speeds without risking over-exposure.
Ideally suited for video capture as well, the PowerShot G9X Mark II is also capable of taking Time-Lapse movies. It also comes equipped with the company's Dynamic Image Stabilisation, which helps to autocorrect camera shake, allowing the user to shoot video or take pictures from odd angles and while on the move.
Weighing at a mere 206g, the camera is roughly 25% more compact than its predecessor and features a streamlined design for easy use and storage. For accessibility, Canon's camera features an LCD touchscreen and Lens Control Ring, the latter used for improved management over aperture, shutter speed and zoom.
Additional features include Wi-Fi connectivity, Dynamic NFC and compatibility with Canon Connect Station, which can be used to quickly share and store captured content.
