Capable and versatile, the PowerShot G6 packs a vast array of advanced technology into a compact, ergonomic body, all working in concert to unleash new levels of photographic control.
||7.1 Megapixels & 4x optical zoom|
||2.0" vari-angle LCD|
||FlexiZone AF/AE & 9-point AiAF|
From the minute you pick it up, the PowerShot G6 inspires confidence. All key controls fall immediately under your fingertips and the rubberised grip makes the camera feel like an extension of your hand. Flip out the large 2.0" vari-angle LCD and you are ready for anything.
Resolution to burn
The 7.1 Megapixel resolution allows detailed prints in excess of A3 size and prints without loss of detail from tight, post-shoot crops.
Great in low light conditions, the fast f/2.0 - f/3.0 lens has a versatile focal length range of 7.2 to 28.8mm (35-140mm equivalent in 35mm format).
Wealth of options
An SLR-style Mode Dial allows you to call up any one of 12 different shooting modes. Two custom modes can be used to save and retrieve your favourite combination of settings.
With incredible speed, Canon's purpose-built DIGIC processor executes the complex algorithms required for accurate image rendering. The result is superb quality images, more accurate focusing and metering, longer battery life and fast start-up times.
Like a built-in photographer's assistant, iSAPS improves auto exposure, auto white balance and auto focus accuracy by monitoring settings and readings, and using these to interpret the shooting situation.
When you need to be fast, the 9-point AiAF focuses quickly on your subject, even when it is off-centre. For full control, FlexiZone AF/AE allows scrolling and selection of the auto focus point from across the frame.
Room to grow
For professional lighting results, the PowerShot G6 is compatible with all Canon Speedlite flash units¹. Optional converter lenses further extend the camera's range.
