Canon announces PowerShot G9 X Mark II pocket powerhouse camera


Canon today announced its new PowerShot G9 X Mark II super-slim and super-fast pocket camera, available in February.

The Mark II is being labelled a pocket powerhouse, offering continuous shooting speeds of up to 8.2 fps, a large 1.0 type 20.1-megapixel sensor and Canon’s DIGIC 7 processor. 

The key benefits are:
1. Pocketable premium image quality in any light.
2. Capture full HD movies with enhanced subject tracking.
3. Pair your phone and camera to share your creations with the world instantly.
4. Personalise your photos with customised camera settings.

The DIGIC 7 processor and CMOS sensor are claimed by the manufacturer to combine and deliver significantly improved performance and high-quality results.

The camera's dual-sensing image stabilisation offers 3.5-stop correction using parallel stabilisation processing.

The Mark II offers sustained continuous shooting at 8.2 frames per second, coupled with 0.14 second auto-focus, a 3x optical zoom and 28mm wide angle lens.

The sensor reduces noise and improves dynamic range in day or night, while the f/2.0 lens lets in more light. The new Auto ND filter restricts light reaching the shutter, avoiding over-exposure.

Canon’s Dynamic Image Stabilisation automatically corrects camera shake. The PowerShot G9 X Mark II includes Time-Lapse movie capture, with a variety of settings.

The PowerShot G9 X Mark II is available in black or silver with retro tan side panels, and weighs just 206g. The camera features an intuitive LCD touchscreen providing full control and access to settings, while the Lens Control Ring provides greater control over aperture, shutter speed and zoom.

Dynamic NFC lets the user quickly connect and transfer images to compatible smart devices with the help of the Canon Camera Connect App. New Bluetooth compatibility means one can maintain a constant camera connection. The feature also means smart devices can be used for Wireless Remote Shooting, allowing one to take photos using a smartphone as a remote control. It has USB charging.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
