Canon G1X Mark III – An overview of an improved and more compact camera

Canon has expanded its ranks of premium G compact cameras with the new Canon G1X Mark III. An updated flagship model, the PowerShot G1X III, includes several system enhancements such as an APS-C sensor and superior dual-tone autofocus technology. However, its cost has increased, now it costs more than $ 1,000 (58,000 rubles).

Canon G1X Mark III Features

The new Canon G1X Mark III eschews the boxy design of its predecessors and closely resembles the PowerShot G5X, with a central, built-in EVF and fully articulated touch screen. The result is a compact size, high image quality and ease of use.

Canon G1X Mark III Features

Canon claims the 24.2MP APS-C CMOS is similar to that used in the popular EOS 80D DSLR, offering an ISO range of 100-25,600.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology promises excellent autofocus. The sensor is paired with Canon’s latest Digic 7 processor, which enables EOS-like image processing features such as auto light optimizer to balance difficult lighting conditions and diffraction compensation for sharper images when shooting at small apertures.

The G1X Mark III’s thick lens cap belies the size of the camera, but it’s an advantage. It is easy to remove or put on when hands are gloved. Along with PASM modes for enthusiast photographers, there is a set of automatic Scene modes aimed at beginners.

When it comes to video, Canon is once again disappointing its fans with its lack of 4K recording. Instead, we only get Full HD, at 60 frames per second. Unlike the G7X Mark II, it doesn’t even have a microphone jack to record better sound.

Camera connection

Connectivity on the Canon G1X Mark III is the same as on the EOS M5: Wi-Fi, Dynamic NFC and Bluetooth Low Energy.

The camera can be switched from standby to working remotely via a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, which can provide remote control and real-time preview on the screen of a smart device. To use these features, you need to install the Camera Connect app.
