The first thing you notice when you pick up the Canon PowerShot G5 X has nothing to do with the technology inside, but with its build quality instead. The camera 's look and feel is something that has clearly had a lot of thought put in to it; every button press and dial movement has a satisfying tactile sensation when used. You'll be pleasantly surprised at its diminutive frame, it has the appearance and styling of larger cameras, but packed in to a small and very sleek body.
Like most modern snappers there are a whole host of technological functions to assist you with your photographic requirements. As with many Canon cameras, this model has included a plethora of shooting modes for a variety of scenes, and the menus can all be accessed via the very intuitive touchscreen, which also features touch to focus.
All this comes in a stylish black body, adorned with leather-esque gripping areas and hard wearing dials and buttons in a matching colour.
