Generic Company Place Holder Canon PowerShot G1 X Compact Camera
The Canon PowerShot G1 X takes the sharpest photos we've ever seen from a fixed-lens camera, and its image quality and video quality are outstanding overall. However, for $800, we expected better macro and burst-mode performance.
- Extensive range of manual and automated controls
- Excellent Handheld Night Scene mode
- Outstanding image quality
- Very expensive for a fixed-lens camera
