NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - October 13, 2015) - B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of two new point-and-shoots from Canon: the PowerShot G5 X Digital Camera and PowerShot G9 X Digital Camera. The G5 X takes a seat just above the current G7 X, thanks to the addition of an integrated 2.36M-dot electronic viewfinder, while it still uses the excellent 20.2-megapixel 1" High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor, DIGIC 6 processor, and 24-100mm equivalent f/1.8-2.8 zoom lens found in the predecessor. The camera retains a slim, lightweight body design along with the 3.0" LCD touchscreen and intuitive control ring and front dial for quick access to camera functions and settings. Also, the G5 X can capture full HD 1080p video at up to 60 fps. Other features include a hot shoe for support for Speedlites and other accessories, built-in Wi-Fi and NFC for connecting to smart devices or the Connection Station CS100, and a Star Mode for taking photos of the night sky.
