Canon PowerShot G1X accessories : The new Canon G1X digital camera will inspire advanced photographers who have embraced the Canon PowerShot G-Series to explore new realms of photographic expression, and give professionals an perfect compact camera that complements their creative demands. The 14.3 Megapixel image sensor, combined with a new high quality lens and DIGIC 5 processor, creates the HS system that delivers image quality previously impossible in a compact digital camera, with beautiful blur, lower noise, and great resolution in low-light shooting conditions. The 1.5-inch High-Sensitivity CMOS image sensor approaches an Canon EOS APS-C sized sensor, with a light-sensitive area that's at least 6.3 times larger than that of the Canon PowerShot G12 camera. |

The advanced Canon PowerShot G1X camera also has 14-bit RAW capabilities for even larger creative control and Full HD Movie recording. Manual settings and operability inherited from Canon EOS cameras impart a high-level photography experience, and open the door to new creative possibilities. Luxury and comfort defines the design; a neatly clarified sculpture with a firm grip, large Vari-angle LCD display and an optical viewfinder are all present. To add even more possibilities Canon has also a range of G1X accessories available.

The Canon FA-DC58C optional lens filter adapter enables photographers to use a range of filters, such as a circular polariser to enhance blue skies or remove strong reflections. For more even lighting when shooting macro subjects, a Macro Ring Lite adapter (Canon MLA-DC1) allows Canon’s Macro Ring Lite or Twin Lite flash units from the Canon EOS System to be used.
