Canon Announces Their First APS-C PowerShot—The G1 X Mark III

Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III

Canon has announced the G1 X Mark III, the first camera in the PowerShot Series to feature a APS-C sensor. The sensor is the same one as used by the EOS 77D and EOS M5, with a resolution of 24MP and Dual Pixel AF capabilities. Image processing is performed by the DIGIC 7 processor, also the same as the cameras mentioned previously.

ISO range is between 100 to 25,600, and the fixed zoom lens has a range of 24-72mm f/2.8-5.6 (35mm equivalent.) The compact body weighs just 400g, so essentially, it’s like a EOS M5 with a fixed zoom lens. The G1 X Mark III can shoot continuously at 7fps, and up to 9fps with fixed AF and the Dual Pixel System. There is optical image stabilisation on the lens, and 5-axis movie image stabilisation to help with the low light situations.

At the back of the camera is a 2.36-million dot OLED EVF as well as a 3″ Vari-angle touchscreen LCD. You can also use the touch and drag AF to move the focussing point while shooting without taking your eyes off the EVF. The G1 X Mark III is also weather-sealed and does 1080/60p video recording. Sadly, no 4K recording is available.

The Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III will be available from November 2017 at US$1,299.
