Can this camera be programed to automatically shoot bracketed shots, e.g., meter, +2 stops and -2 stops?
Asked by: Thomas
As indicated on pages 81 of the Canon PowerShot G3 X Digital Camera's instruction manual (listed on our website under the "In The Box" section under the Overview tab), the camera has Auto Exposure Bracketing capabilities. Three consecutive images are captured at different exposure levels (standard exposure, underexposure, and then overexposure) each time you shoot. You can adjust the amount of underexposure and overexposure (relative to standard exposure) from -2 to +2 stops in 1/3-stop increments.

I just received my Canon G3X with the Free Accessory Kit. I got only 1 16Gb memory card. Doesn't the camera come with a card, so shouldn't I have two?
Asked by: Jay B.
It has been some time since I purchased the camera, but I don't think it came with a memory card. Since I use a Canon 5D Mk III, I had several SD cards and didn't need to purchase extras.I must say, this camera is a little powerhouse of a travel camera. You should enjoy it for years to come.

Is there a third-party lens cap available if the optional lens hood and filter adapter are installed?
Asked by: Gene
The lens cap that came with the filter works on the filter. A third party isn't necessary.
