Product description
Announced Oct 16, 2017

The Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III is a reasonably compact camera with a 24MP APS-C sensor and built-in 24-72mm F2.8-5.6 lens.

It's smaller and much lighter than its predecessor and its design is nearly identical to that of the PowerShot G5 X. It's 'Dual Sensing' image stabilization system reduces shake by up to four stops. Other features include a fully articulating touchscreen display, OLED electronic viewfinder with "touchpad AF," 7 fps burst shooting with continuous AF and 1080/60p video capture.

Our review

The G1 X Mark III is an impressively compact camera with a large APS-C sensor and a zoom lens with a versatile focal range. It has tons of direct controls and can produce great image quality, but is expensive and the permanently attached lens has a slow aperture range and hampers an otherwise capable, pocketable camera.

Good for: General photography, landscapes and world travelers who don't mind bringing along an extra battery or two.

Not so good for: Those who want to be able to photograph sports or work primarily in low light.
