About this item

The PowerShot G7 is compatible with many shooting accessories, not only wide & tele converter lenses, a waterproof case & High-Power Flash designed for all of the PowerShot models, but also Speedlite EX series that is compatible with all EOS series SLR cameras. By using Speedlites, the G7 is able to have extra functions such as autoflash metering, FE lock & Flash exposure compensation, continuous shooting with external flash & more.

The DIGIC III Image Processor is the latest advancement to Canon's proprietary DIGIC technology, delivering superior image quality, ultra-responsive performance & extended battery life. DIGIC III provides a speedier interface for the G7's SD memory card as well as higher definition for its LCD monitor.

DIGIC III also empowers Face Detection AF/AE, which finds all the faces in the frame & sets the most suitable focus point, when the shutter button is depressed half-way. Exposure & flash are controlled to ensure proper illumination of both the faces and the overall scene, eliminating the common problem of darkened or overexposed faces.

iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the fast DIGIC III Image Processor to improve focus speed & accuracy, as well as exposure & white balance.

The camera's 2.5" LCD monitor gives you the big picture, whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your images. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear picture & wider viewing angle to make shooting, playback & using the camera's menu functions especially convenient. Clear & bright, it also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light

The PowerShot G7 features ISO 1600 & High ISO Auto settings that reduce the effects of camera shake & sharpen subjects in low-light situations, giving you greater flexibility for shooting. The PowerShot G7 is compatible with many shooting accessories, not only wide & tele converter lenses, a waterproof case & High-Power Flash designed for all of the PowerShot models, but also Speedlite EX series that is compatible with all EOS series SLR cameras. By using Speedlites, the G7 is able to have extra functions such as autoflash metering, FE lock & Flash exposure compensation, continuous shooting with external flash & more.

G7's expanded selection of ISO settings (80,100,200,400,800,1600,High ISO Auto & AUTO) is now controlled from a dedicated dial, for quick, intuitive access. The camera's comprehensive Mode Dial is thoughtfully positioned, both toprovide an easy shooting experience & to avoid accidental turns.

The PowerShot G7 allows you to record extremely smooth, high-resolution movie clips in XGA at 15 fps (1024x768 pixels). With a highly flexible movie mode, you can create the movie that's perfect for any application. The PowerShot G7's Print/Share button makes direct printing easier than ever.
