About this item

With a stunning combination of resolution, speed and control, all housed in a rugged, elegant new black enclosure, the PowerShot G5 takes the lead as Canon's flagship PowerShot. The PowerShot G5 features an all-new 1/1.8½ 5 megapixel CCD sensor, capturing a huge 2592 x 1944 pixel image with exceptional detail and color fidelity. It has a fast, high resolution 4x optical zoom lens with iris-type aperture and User-operated, multi-stop control for spectacular depth of field, or elegant blur. Perfect focus, exposure, and color are achieved quickly with the combination of Canon's exclusive DiGiC imaging processor with iSAPS (Intelligent Scene Analysis based on Photographic Space) technology, an Intelligent Orientation Sensor, and the use of primary color filters. All these features, plus a host of manual and automatic functions ensure that the PowerShot G5 will get the perfect shot every time.

At the heart of the PowerShot G5 is Canon's powerful 4x, all-glass zoom lens. With a 35mm equivalent range of 35-140mm, a large maximum aperture of f/2.0-3.0, and macro focusing down to 2 in., there's virtually nothing this lens can't do. A 4x digital zoom feature extends the telephoto capabilities even further, effectively making it a 16x zoom. Two choices for autofocus: use Canon's FlexiZone AF to move the focus point almost anywhere in the frame, or lock it at the center. Either way, you get precise, tack-sharp focus, from close-ups to scenics.There's even a focus bracketing feature, which shifts focus slightly over three separate pictures. Finally, there's a continuous AF setting which leaves the AF active any time the camera is on and single AF, which updates focus only when the shutter button is pressed halfway. PowerShot G5 autofocus: the power of choice. In addition to a host of automatic features, the PowerShot G5 allows for full manual control. The user can set shutter speeds of 1/2000-15 seconds, and adjust aperture, focus, flash output and exposure compensation. Additionally, the PowerShot offers features such as exposure and focus bracketing, AF and AE lock, even a neutral density filter, ensuring total control for even the most discerning photographer. The PowerShot G5 gives users three light metering choices. Canon's sophisticated Evaluative metering reads tens of thousands of separate areas of the full image, and is the ideal metering choice for most situations. There's also full-area Centerweighted metering, which is perfect for shooters who prefer to dial in their own exposure compensation. Finally, for the utmost precision, there's Spot metering which can measure a tiny area either at the center of the image, or can be linked to the AF point if it's off-center. Intelligent Orientation Sensor automatically rotates images for playback, improves auto exposure and white balance. The G5 has many advanced features for creativity, as well as connectivity, and features comprehensive system accessories.
