The Precision of Fine Control

The first PowerShot G-Series camera to incorporate a full-featured 2.36 million dot electronic viewfinder, the PowerShot G5 X camera makes it simple to capture high-quality stills and video without taking your eye away from the camera. With its 1.0-inch CMOS sensor and a 4.2x Optical Zoom lens, it can deliver incredible performance that's easy to see.

Built-in Electronic Viewfinder

Built-in Electronic Viewfinder

The PowerShot G5 X's 2.36 million dot electronic viewfinder adds flexibility in how you use the camera. It's great for photographers who prefer to hold the camera up to their eye, and is a veritable lifesaver in bright light and other situations where the lighting is difficult. What's more, you can also customize the image information you see in the viewfinder to help get your photo looking how you want it to, and view vivid edge-to-edge images you can easily compose, adjust and review.

1.0-inch CMOS Sensor

At the heart of the PowerShot G5 X camera is a brilliant 1.0-inch 20.2 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor. Physically larger than the sensors found in most compact cameras, the PowerShot G5 X's sensor works in tandem with Canon's DIGIC 6 Image Processor to quickly deliver gorgeous, high-resolution images with nuanced details, plus impressive low-light performance with a low signal-to-noise ratio and minimal noise and distortion.

* Image processing may cause a decrease in the number of pixels.

To take advantage of its large, 1.0-inch imaging sensor, the PowerShot G5 X camera has a sharp and versatile 4.2x Optical Zoom lens. With a 35mm equivalent range of 24-100mm, it's equally suitable for landscapes, portraits, group photographs and even close-up photography. The PowerShot G5 X's lens works with the camera's sensor and image processor to deliver sharp images tailored to meet the exacting standards of even critical photographers.

Convenient Controls

With easy-to-use customizable dials and a quiet control ring, the PowerShot G5 X camera lets you adjust the camera's settings without searching through menus, and keep noise to a minimum when recording video. A variety of Vari-angle LCD screen and viewfinder layouts keep the information you want, right where you want to see it.

Convenient Controls
Vari-angle LCD

Vari-angle LCD

For composing photos and movies from a variety of angles, the PowerShot G5 X camera features a high-resolution, Vari-angle, capacitive LCD screen that can not only tilt out and rotate up to 270 degrees, but can also be turned around and closed when using the camera's electronic viewfinder or when the camera is not in use. Its touch-panel operation makes it simple to access quick control settings, set the focus and release the shutter right on the screen.

Built-in Hot Shoe

The PowerShot G5 X camera's hot shoe enables expanded operations for advanced photography. It's compatible with all Speedlite flashes for the EOS System, so bounce flash and multiple-flash photography is easy to achieve. Whether attaching a Speedlite flash or the Remote Switch RS-60E3 for long exposures or night scenes, the PowerShot G5 X's hot shoe can help provide an incredible range of shooting opportunities.

Built-in Hot Shoe
Wireless Sharing

Wireless Sharing

With built-in Wi-Fi/NFC and Canon's universal Camera Connect App*, the camera makes it easy to share pictures when you want, where you want. It can connect directly to other cameras, compatible mobile devices*, PictBridge (Wireless LAN) certified printers and select social networking sites. Additionally, with compatible Android devices** and the optional Canon Connect Station CS100, connection is as simple as tapping the devices together. The options are endless: share and transfer images and video right away from almost anywhere you go, and even shoot remotely from your smartphone or tablet.*

* Compatible with iOS versions 7.1/8.4, Android smartphone versions 2.3.3/4.0/4.1/4.2/4.3/4.4/5.0/5.1 and Android tablet versions 4.0/4.1/4.2/4.3/4.4/5.0/5.1. Data charges may apply with the download of the free Canon Camera Connect app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miniaturized DSLR I was looking for a high quality grab & go camera for times when I didn't want to take along my 5D. I originally bought the M3 Mirrorless, but couldn't get comfortable with it for a number of reasons, so it was returned. I purchased the G5X mainly because i just feel more comfortable looking through a Viewfinder. I've shot for about two weeks with the G5X and love this little GEM. It's basically a miniaturized 5D with a fixed, telescoping lens (24-70 35mm equivalent). It's a perfect daily bring along. Not small enough to slip into a pant pocket, but an easy carry. Excellent ease of use, terrific image quality, just what I needed for a grab & go !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost a perfect everyday camera I've previously owne most of the G series cameras, as everyday cameras when I can't carry my DSLR. My G12 was my favorite, until the 5GX came out. It's nearly perfect. Love the viewfinder that auto detects when looking through it. Great LCD image. The major selling point of this camera. Too many times bright sunlight makes using the LCD difficult. Problem solved. But I said, "almost". The 5Gx needs, * Filter support * External microphone and speaker connectors * Definitely needs a way to input external power, for time-lapsed photos, using my external trigger. Battery would run out, before you got a few seconds worth of stills for time-lapse video Still, I would give it a 5 rating.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Potential to be great. On a recent two week trip to Italy I took my G5x and G16. I took 140 shots. Half with the G5 and half with the G16. I'm sad to say the G16 results were far superior to the G5. I used the same settings on both but the G5 prints were not as sharp. I will a loose a lot of money but I'm trading in. Too late to return.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great ergonomics, bad lens This is a very exciting product. Manufacturers are realizing that view finders are important across all range of cameras. This was kinda forgotten during the 2000's and early 2010'. Even today many 'enthusiast' cameras still don't have viewfinders or have them as a 2nd thought add-on. You can tell Canon did their homework here on EVF, body styling, controls. Most people either love or hate the look of this camera. But the smart money is usually on miniaturization in all fields of manufacturing. For me this body is like a mini-mini-DSLR. Putting the squeeze in size over even micro 4/3 bodies. It just feels great in the hand. The EVF is large and beautiful. Something entire different than the puny boxes you get in something like Sony RX100 series which is just inadequate for anything but emergencies. The menu system is not terrible, but it's a little confusing when some of the outer buttons do things you can't get to from the menus like the scene mode. Menu's are typically an area where cameras can fall over. Either from being too voluminous in their settings (like Sony) or by not being updated in their styling enough through many years (like Panasonic). But overall the ergonomic and control options are very workable. If you've ever owned a DSLR or other camera with full controls you will find most of the standard features you want here. Of course no 4K video and raw shooting is not deep. Those features would serve you better going with something like LX100. But body styling on LX100 is inferior to the G5X. Every camera body is made or broken in terms of usability and image quality. What makes up IQ is the lens, the sensor, and the algorithms which process the data. The single largest thing preventing you from getting great images from this camera is the lens. Although when you are looking through the EVF you may think you would get the same look into your images, the evidence is that at least from 24mm-50mm equiv, this lens is very soft, pathetically so. If you check all the standard camera review websites you will see that only the studio images are anywhere sharp. One of these sites wondered if they had a bad copy of this camera but they did get similar images from other Canon cameras using the same lens (such as two other G7X). The lens on this camera is reported as soft from 24mm to 50mm by these sites and by viewing images from flickr and other sites. I reviewed lots of cameras and have not seen many with as much potential as the G5X but cannot recommend it until the lens sharpness issue is both acknowledged and addressed by Canon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from almost perfect I waited for this to come out since g12 released. This is it :D The only drawback might be the lack of filters support, but this was fixed by They are making an adapter that lets you fit 52mm filters. Sweet :D Go buy it, you wont regret it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Where is the filter adapter accessory? With “bulb” setting the G5X is potentially capable of “fluid motion” photography using ND filters and 2-4 minute exposures on a tripod, which the G16 is not able to do. However, unlike the G16, the G5X offers no filter adapter for the necessary ND filters, thus negating potential utility of the “bulb” setting for fine photography. This is stupid.
