Successor to the PowerShot G1 X Mark II (released in March 2014), the PowerShot G1 X Mark III is an all-in-one camera developed for users seeking professional-level photographic expression. Equipped with an APS-C size CMOS sensor, a large-diameter zoom lens and Canon’s DIGIC 7 image processor, the camera achieves high image quality befitting a flagship model while retaining a lightweight and compact body.

In addition to being Canon’s first compact camera to utilize an APS-C sized CMOS sensor with 24.2 million effective pixels1, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III also features a newly designed large-diameter f/2.8-5.6 lens with 24-72 mm (35 mm film equivalent) 3x optical zoom, enabling users to achieve exquisite bokeh effects and smooth gradation expression. What’s more, the camera’s DIGIC 7 image processor features improved noise reduction and image resolution when shooting at high sensitivities, realizing a normal high sensitivity of ISO25600 when shooting still images.

The PowerShot G1 X Mark III measures approximately 115 mm (W) x 77.9 mm (H) x 51.4 mm (D) and weighs2 approximately 399 g—a weight reduction of approximately 27% and an approximately 16% reduction in body size compared to its predecessor3. While achieving this lightweight, compact body design, the camera features such improved functions as high-precision, high-image-quality Dual Pixel CMOS AF and dust and drip resistance4. What’s more, when shooting using the viewfinder, the camera’s built-in high-resolution EVF and vari-angle touch-panel LCD work together to deliver touch and drag AF, which allows the user to move the focus frame using touch-panel operations while looking through the EVF, for intuitive focusing.

4 To maximize the camera’s dust- and drip- resistance, keep the terminal cover, memory card/battery cover, and all other covers firmly closed. This camera is considered dust and water resistant in that it can prevent dust or water that falls on it unexpectedly from getting inside. However, the camera cannot completely prevent such particles as dust, dirt, water and salt from getting inside.
