Featuring a large APS-C sized CMOS sensor – the same as used in many EOS cameras – it’s clear the Canon PowerShot G1X Mark III is built to deliver pristine, high-quality images on par with many DSLRs. Powered by a DIG!C 7 processor, the camera is capable of ISO sensitivity up to 25600 and boasts super-fast auto-focus and tracking, proving it can handle a wide range of shooting conditions while delivering sharp images with beautiful colour. Whether you find yourself in a high-contrast indoor setting, shooting stars on a dark night or outside on bright, sunny day shooting fast-action sports, you can trust this powerful compact camera will rise to the occasion.
One of the great things about the Canon PowerShot G1X Mark III is that it feels good in your hands. At a comfortable size that isn’t too big, it can easily be stowed away or carried in your hand without hassle. It’s also dust- and water-resistant, so it can go wherever you go – whether it’s an entire globetrotting journey or a fun day out at home. Its features also enable a familiar DSLR level of control and instinctiveness, and you can easily customize the camera to suit your own shooting style and preferences. It will feel like second nature to use.
With a 3-inch rear vari-angle touchscreen, the PowerShot G1X Mark III opens up new possibilities to discover unique and creative angles in your photography. Whether you’re bending down low or stretching up high, being able to swivel the screen will quickly prove hugely beneficial. You’re also able to efficiently select focus points and shoot via Touch Shutter on the touchscreen LCD, and easily swipe to review images on playback. Do you prefer to shoot with a viewfinder for DSLR-like handling? The camera also features a super responsive organic EL viewfinder.
The 24-72mm equivalent f/2.8-f/5.6 Canon lens on this camera has been optimized for the APS-C imaging sensor, to deliver the best possible images and video. Whether you’re taking portraits and wish to create contrast with a sharp focus on your subject and a blurred background, or you want to capture all the detail in a wide, landscape shot, this camera and lens combo will bring it all to life.
Don’t let yourself be limited to stills. The powerful sensor and image processor on the PowerShot G1 X Mark III allows it to record superior quality Full HD 1080p video too – at 60 frames per second, with fast and smooth autofocus. Whether it’s a birthday party, a once-in-a-lifetime travel moment or you just want to have a bit of fun and play, once you see the video on playback you’ll be captivated and want to do even more.
