Sydney, Australia, 5 January 2017 – Canon today refreshes its acclaimed PowerShot G-series with the new PowerShot G9 X Mark II, a super slim, pocketable powerhouse. Offering superfast continuous shooting speeds of up to 8.2 fps, a large 1.0 type 20.1-megapixel sensor and Canon’s DIGIC 7 processor, the camera delivers responsive performance and stunning results with every press of the shutter. Whether you’re a photo enthusiast or ready to upgrade from a smartphone, the PowerShot G9 X Mark II is the camera to be carrying.

PowerShot G9 X Mark II – key benefits

  • Pocketable premium image quality in any light
  • Capture superb full HD movies with enhanced subject tracking
  • Pair your phone and camera to share your creations with the world instantly
  • Personalise your photos with customised camera settings

Power, precision, performance

With a DIGIC 7, and CMOS sensor at the heart, the PowerShot G9 X Mark II offers significantly improved performance and high quality results. Dual sensing image stabilisation offers 3.5-stop correction using parallel stabilisation processing, great for shooting on-the-go and keeping the frame steady even when your hand isn’t. For spontaneous moments – from striking street art to instaworthy moments – sustained continuous shooting at 8.2 frames per second, coupled with 0.14 second auto-focus ensures you’re always ready and have a camera that keeps up. To keep everything in the shot, the camera packs a 3x optical zoom and 28mm wide angle lens, great for portraits and beautiful landscapes alike.

Memorable moments are captured with perfect clarity, whatever the light. The sensor significantly reduces noise and improves dynamic range for consistent performance day or night, while the f/2.0 lens lets in more light, giving you the freedom to use lower ISO or higher shutter speeds, and create beautiful background blur. For motion blur while capturing moving objects, the new Auto ND filter restricts light reaching the shutter, letting you use longer shutter speeds without over-exposure.

Create superb full HD movies

Become a budding videographer and capture incredible Full HD movies; DIGIC 7’s improved subject tracking ensure you capture everything, from big, sudden movements to small changes in facial expression.

Whether you’re at a music festival or exploring the city, there’s no need to stand still, Canon’s Dynamic Image Stabilisation automatically corrects camera shake, helping you shoot from any angle or on the move. For unique creations the PowerShot G9 X Mark II includes Time-Lapse movie capture, with a variety of settings to give you creative control.

A pocketable powerhouse

The PowerShot G9 X Mark II delivers amazing performance in a minimalist design. Available in black or silver with retro tan side panels, and weighing just 206g, it’s perfect for pockets. The camera features an intuitive LCD touchscreen providing full control and access to settings, without adding bulky buttons, while the Lens Control Ring gives you greater control over aperture, shutter speed and zoom.

Stay connected and share your creations

Stay in touch with connectivity at your fingertips via the Wi-Fi button. Dynamic NFC lets you quickly connect and transfer images to compatible smart devices with the help of the Canon Camera Connect App. The new Bluetooth compatibility means you can maintain a constant camera connection, so you can see and share your photographs via a phone or tablet even when your camera is tucked away. The feature also means smart devices can be used for Wireless Remote Shooting, allowing you to take photos using your smart phone as a remote control.
