PowerShot G1X Mark III
Premium Digital Compact Camera
Canon's PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera establishes itself as the new flagship in the premium G-Series lineup with many features typically found in an interchangeable lens camera, performance and image quality to match. The PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera breaks new ground as the first Canon compact digital camera to feature a large 24.2 Megapixel APS-C sensor for detailed images and Dual Pixel CMOS AF for fast autofocus. A wealth of advanced features including a built-in electronic viewfinder, a 3.0-inch Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD with Touch and Drag AF and built-in Wi-Fi®, NFC and Bluetooth® technology offer impressive performance in virtually any situation.
A flexible ISO 100-25600 range suits working in a variety of lighting conditions, and the processing capabilities minimize noise for notable clarity. The processor also contributes to a fast 7 fps continuous shooting rate, which can be altered through to 9 fps with AF lock for photographing fast-moving subjects. Full HD 1080p video recording is also supported at up to a 60-fps frame rate.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF offers smooth and fast focusing performance in a similar manner to how a typical camcorder acquires focus. This system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a broad and dense network of phase-detection gathering elements across a majority of the image sensor to reduce focus hunting for faster, more direct control of focus placement. When working with still imagery, this focusing system works to acquire focus quickly and accurately, making it ideally suited to shooting and tracking moving subjects so that critical focus is attained with each shot.
A built-in 3x zoom lens offers a versatile 24-72mm equivalent focal length range, covering a wide-angle to portrait-length reach.
