Canon G1 X Mark III Review: Greater Strengths, Weaker Overall
Canon’s forthcoming G1 X Mark III camera is positioned to become their first to offer a 24.2 Megapixel APS-C sensor and Dual Pixel CMOS AF. However, will that be enough to persuade photographers to upgrade?
Canon’s upcoming G-Series successor will supply built-in flash and optical image stabilization, also offering three zooming options: 3x Optical, 4x Digital, and 12x Combined Zoom. Other useful tools include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC compatibility and resistance to water and dust. Disappointingly, while Canon’s G1 X Mark III should provide an adept partner in photography, it took several hits in specs, with its predecessor supplying an overall more well-rounded option.
The Mark III’s battery is projected to keep for roughly four hours of playback time. As for its physical dimensions, it will span around 4.5 by 3.1 by 2.0 inches. Additionally, the camera has an intuitive 3-inch touch-capable screen, offering users a quick way to control their machine. In a correspondence with Engadget, Canon affirmed how the latest G-Series camera will retain shallow depth-of-field, and it’s “faster than its DSLR or mirrorless kit lenses.”
The camera’s internal DIGIC 7 Image Processor will render your pictures with beautifully realized details regardless of lighting conditions. Users can also take advantage of the camera’s image processor to shoot up to seven frames-per-second, although this can be enhanced to nine frames-per-second with the One Shot AF. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF offers another helpful tool, allowing you to easily keep track on your picture’s focal point even if it’s in motion. Plus, another fun new tool is the Mark III’s panoramic shot mode, which connects up to seven images together vertically or horizontally.
In addition to the camera itself, you’ll find a Battery Pack NB-13L, a Battery Charger CB-2LH, Neck Strap NS-DC12 and Strap Adapters in the package.
