Canon PowerShot G5 X Review
The Power Shot G5 is one of Canon’s high end cameras, the latest compact from that company launched alongside the company’s other two cameras; G9 X and EOS M10. Of these three, the G5 X stands out as the most exceptional, featuring an electronic view finder setting and a set of other oriented controls all neatly packed in a camera frame small enough to comfortably fit in your pocket.
Of all cameras in Canon’s G series, the G5 X is no doubt among the top models, a worthy successor of the G16 that had been realized in the market a year before the G5 X. It however comes second to the G1 X and the G3 X which feature a bigger sensor and a longer zoom capability respectively.
The sensor featured in the G5 X is a one inch type and sports a 20.2 million pixel. This back lit sensor, like the one found in the G7 X compact is ISO 125-12-800 certified processor from Digic. This generally translates to incredible processing speeds and greater sensitivity, giving photography enthusiasts a feel of heaven on earth.
The lens is also similar to the G7 X’s, having a zoom capacity of 4 X and its focal range is around 24 to 100 mm. The aperture range is f/1.8-2.8 and this has the function of giving the photographer relatively good control over dimensional aspects of the field such as depth.
Mounted on a flexible hinge with the ability to adjust angle is the G5 X’s incredibly sensitive 1.04 million dot screen. The flexibility of the hinge allows for shots to be taken at almost all angles, both high and low making it easier to shoot images of varied landscapes.
In regard to connectivity, the Canon Power Shot G5 X has inbuilt antennae for both NFC and Wi-Fi technology. This is one of those really cool features as it can allow you to change settings on your camera and even take shots from your tablet or smartphone. Besides this use, there is the conventional use of Bluetooth which is sharing of data, in this case, images and video clips from the camera to your mobile devices and even on to social media.
The camera’s battery is a removable and rechargeable Li-on battery which has enough capacity to last you a day. But of course this is largely dependent on a few factors like how much you use the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth settings which normally use up a lot of stored charge. It can sustain around 210 shots depending on which mode you use. The Eco mode can go as much as 320 shots which is rather okay. Granted, this is not particularly the best battery found on a compact camera, but it is not all that bad and you can always purchase an extra battery. That will actually be a great investment especially for those long days out in the field, away from charging points.
