The Canon PowerShot G5 X is an all-new camera that is equipped with a large 1-inch type sensor, which may not be the biggest sensor around but is actually remarkably big for a camera that is this compact. The sensor is a 20.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and is paired with a very useful 14-200 mm F1.8-F2.8 zoom lens fitted with optical image stabilization.

The camera is equipped with Canon's DIGIC 6 image processor and promises speedy performance without compromising on the quality of the images themselves. This camera is capable of spraying away images at speeds of 6 frames per second. As an added bonus, it is also well capable of recording Full HD 1080p video at frame rates of up to 60 frames per second.

The camera also has a built-in viewfinder that is fully electronic and has 2.36 million dots and a refresh rate of 120 frames per second.

The Canon PowerShot G5 X clearly is a camera built for those unwilling to compromise on anything, and is perfect for photographers looking to capture images in high quantities and of high quality.
