Beautiful Bokeh

The term 'Bokeh' comes from a Japanese word that refers to the quality of the out-of-focus parts of an image. The PowerShot G7 X uses a nine-bladed lens aperture to produce smooth background blur and virtually circular out-of-focus highlights. Create beautiful 18-ray starburst effects in scenes with strong highlights.

Capture superb low light shots and beautiful background blur. The 1.0-type CMOS sensor offers you improved low light performance without compromising the compactness of the camera. It uses a light-sensitive area that is nearly 3 times larger than that of 1/1.7-type sensors, providing increased light sensitivity, reduced noise, (especially at high ISO) and a wider dynamic range. It also gives you greater creative flexibility with a shallower depth of field for professional looking out of focus backgrounds.
