A new Canon digital camera PowerShot G6 has a smaller size than the previous model G5. The new camera has a matrix for 7.1 millions pixels. This camera provides a high quality of image due to the advanced optical filter and fast 4x zoom objective with a f2.0 aperture. The processor of this camera has advanced algorithms for the image processing.
The PowerShot G6 has twelve shooting modes and an ergonomic design. There is a clear turning LCD display with an anti-blicking surface that has a size of two inches. The camera can write images in the formats RAW and JPEG at once with the ability to select the resolution of a JPEG file.
The 7.1MP sensor of the camera provides a high resolution, which is sufficient to print shot in formats larger than A3. The fast objective is optimized according to the sensor's data. The Canon engineers worked well for the spectral characteristics of this objective. Furthermore, the color rendering parameters of the processor DIGIC allow the reproduction of many shades. All these features increase the quality of the image and suppress false colors that can appear at shots, made by lower class cameras. An optical filter helps to perform more efficient work with the colors.
The Canon G series cameras use nine point intelligent auto-focusing. It permits to perform automatic focusing at none central objects and extends the opportunities of the photograph.
The enhanced auto-focusing system increases its speed for about fifty percent and the moveable zone of the auto-focusing and auto-exposition give a possibility to create a part of the cadre that is used for measuring and auto-focusing. This is a perfect solution by the Canon engineers that permits making the process of the exposition development more creative. The system is provided with an optical filter; this is an original optical filter with the neutral density. In this way, you can shot with slower delays and wide diaphragms at the bright daylight.
The choice of twelve shooting modes grants you a full control of the camera at any circumstances. A manual mode and modes with priorities by delay or diaphragms are usual for high class digital cameras. Additionally, the camera G6 includes two user modes for recording preferences of the camera and also a night shooting mode. Five panorama modes perform a high quality combining of shots with the applied software PhotoStitch. You can shoot three minutes movies with a sound track.
You can turn a two inches LCD display for any angles. By this, you can shoot keeping the camera in different positions. There is an ability to perform a series of shots - up to hundred images with an interval one to sixty minutes.
Complex algorithms that are required for the high quality image processing are integrated to the unique processor Canon DIGIC. The processor provides the camera with a series, comprising up to fourteen cadres with the speed of two cadres per second. One micro-chip combines all the main functions; a power supply is also decreased. The camera PowerShot G6 uses a powerful re-charged LiIon accumulator 511A, which lets make up to three hundred shots of high resolution with one battery charge. The camera is provided with the software ZoomBrowser EX 5.0 (PC) and Image Browser for Apple Mac platforms.
