In October of 2015, technology giant Canon U.S.A. Inc. announced the release of its latest line of digital cameras. Among the models released is the new Powershot G5 X camera. The Canon Powershot G5 X camera has purportedly been dubbed the successor to the G16 model but with newer and more enhanced capabilities. The new device continues the trend introduced by earlier Powershot models; delivering high quality photos while meeting the needs demanded by both the professional and basic camera users. Users of the new G5 X camera will enjoy the twenty point two (20.2)M megapixel one inch CMOS sensor, the three (3) inch 1.04M dot fully articulated touch screen, the 24-100 millimetres (F1.8-2.8) lens as well as the new 2.36M dot OLED Electronic Viewfinder (EVF).
