Canon Officially Announces the Powershot G3 X

20150205_thumbL_psg3x_3qOk, so it is official now. You know what the camera is like, thanks to the development announcement. A few more tidbits: The camera will be weather-proofed, does 1080p video, and can do 6 FPS continuous shooting. Like the G7 X, no viewfinder of any kind will be present. The sensor is still the same 20 megapixel 1″ sensor, with the 24-600mm equivalent f/2.8-5.6 lens. Arrives in July for US$1,000.

Canon Makes Development Announcement of Powershot G3 X


Finally, there is the development announcement of the Powershot G3 X. Right now all we know is that it will have a 1″ sensor paired with a 25x zoom lens that will be equivalent to 24-600mm. It looks like a G7 X with a better grip and a larger lens. Beyond that the rest of the camera is a mystery. The past 12 months sure had a lot of these “development announcements”, even from established companies like Canon and Nikon. I wonder if it is a sign of the camera industry being a little worried at their sales slump…
