Improved Sensor. A new 1/3" sensor improves 3dB in signal-to-noise ratio, resulting in better low-light shooting than previous models.
More Control, More Features. The G40 offers a greater level of manual control and enhanced features to help you get the best possible image out of the camera. The Custom Key and Dial give you direct control of aperture and shutter, while zebras and compositional aids help you properly frame and set your exposure.
Looks Setting. Added to provide you with easy access to creative imaging effects, the Looks Setting brings the Wide DR and Highlight Priority gamma modes first seen on the XA30 to the G40. Wide DR smooths out highlights and shadows, increasing dynamic range 600%, while the Highlight Priority gamma setting reduces highlights and mid-tone compression to hold the brightest areas of your image.
