Canon scales the heights of clarity with a state-of-the-art digital camera that delivers images of unprecedented quality. PowerShot G1 is the camera with enough advanced options to satisfy a professional photographer, yet it retains an ease of use that will allow a skilled amateur to shoot without feeling overwhelmed. It even boasts the ability to take short movie clips - with sound! Packing 3.34 million pixels, you'll be hard-pressed to find a camera that can deliver a clearer image with 3x zoom lens.Meanwhile, you can control every aspect of your shot as much or as little as you want. Shutter speed, aperture, white balance, focus - you can manually adjust any of them to suit your creative needs, or let PowerShot G1 take care of them for you. Innovative options such as auto exposure bracketing allow you to hedge your best while shooting in questionable conditions. Meanwhile, variable-angle LCD monitor and a convenient wireless remote allow you to take shots from difficult angles with ease. Whether you are a professional or just want to take professional grade photos, PowerShot G1 is the digital camera for you. This model makes magnifying images: in single image replay, the displayed image can be shown magnified by an approximately factor of 2.5 or 5. It also provides movie recording and playback: if a picture is worth a thousand words, then this feature is priceless! When you're desperate for a video camera, PowerShot G1 can record a QVGA (320 x 240 pixels) digital movie clip (with sound) at 15 frames per second for up to 30 seconds. Then you can play back your home movies on the built-in LCD monitor or a compatible personal computer or even on your TV! PowerShot G1 even offers video output in either NTSC or PAL, allowing playback abroad.
