Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III

 

The Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III is smaller than the Mark II, despite having a bigger sensor, but sacrifices zoom range to get there.

Big, APS-C image sensor. Compact body. Dual Pixel AF. EVF. Vari-angle touch LCD. Dust and moisture resistant. Wi-Fi.

Short, narrow aperture zoom lens. Video limited to 1080p.

Bottom Line: The Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III is smaller than the Mark II, despite having a bigger sensor, but sacrifices zoom range to get there.

Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III review

 

A unique compact, thanks to an APS-C sensor and zoom lens

APS-C sensor in a small body ; Built-in EVF ; Refined touchscreen interface ; Compact size

Limited zoom range ; Battery life restrictive ; Only 1080p video capture

The PowerShot G1 X Mark III is the first APS-C format compact camera to feature a zoom lens, making it worthy of interest. It's pricey, but Canon may just have hit the sweet spot for enthusiast photographers looking for a compact partner for their DSLR...

Canon G1X Mark III

 

A mighty little camera that rewrites the rulebook for zoom compacts. Canon G1X Mark III.

Class-leading image quality ; Excellent control layout and handling ; Robust weather-resistant construction

Lens is a little limited in terms of creative potential ; Relatively poor battery life ; No 4K video recording

Want a small camera with a short zoom lens, electronic viewfinder and the highest possible image quality? Then the G1X Mark III is without doubt one of the very best on the market right now.

The Canon Powershot G1 X Mark III has taken the great usability of a Canon DSLR, and the 24mp APS-C CMOS sensor with phase-detection AF built-in, and squished it into a compact camera, whilst maintaining excellent handling and usability. They've also...
