Bundling a versatile long zoom camera with an intuitive storage device, the Canon PowerShot G3 X Digital Camera with Connect Station CS100 Kit from B&H includes the advanced point-and-shoot along with a wirelessly accessible storage hub.
Characterized by a large image sensor and long-reaching zoom lens, the PowerShot G3 X pairs a 20.2MP 1" High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor to form the Canon HS SYSTEM for enhanced low-light capabilities, fast shooting performance up to 5.9 fps, and Full HD 1080p/60 video recording. Matching the imaging versatility is the expansive 25x optical zoom lens, which provides a 24-600mm equivalent focal length range, and is aided by Intelligent IS image stabilization as well as a quick 31-point autofocus system. A 3.2" 1.62m-dot tilting touchscreen LCD serves as an intuitive means for composing and reviewing imagery from various angles, and built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows you to wirelessly share imagery with a smartphone, tablet, or Connect Station CS100.
Also included within this kit is the Connect Station CS100, which is a media hub, designed to store, manage, and view up to 1TB of multimedia content. Transferring to this storage device is possible using NFC and Wi-Fi, and a USB 2.0 port as well as SD and CF card slots is also featured for importing content. Playback is supported on HDTVs from the device using an HDMI connection, and the drive's contents can also be viewed using a web browser on a computer or mobile device.
Canon PowerShot G3 X Digital Camera
Reach out and capture distant scenes and subjects without compromise thanks to the large 20.2-megapixel 1.0" High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and 25x optical zoom lens present on the PowerShot G3 X Digital Camera from Canon. The Canon lens offers a fast maximum aperture range of f/2.8-5.6 for operation in a range of conditions while the zoom range extends from a wide angle 24mm equivalent to a super telephoto 600mm equivalent. Also, operating at odd angles, or when taking a selfie, is benefitted by the inclusion of a 3.2" 1.62m-dot multi-angle tilting touchscreen LCD.
When combining the High-Sensitivity Sensor with the DIGIC 6 processor, the Canon HS System is created, providing excellent low-light performance up to ISO 12,800 as well as a plethora of other capabilities. Continuous shooting at up to 5.9 fps is possible with no buffer time to slow you down, and the High-Speed AF System will lock focus in as fast as 0.14 seconds. Focusing is also accurate through the implementation of 31 points across the frame. Another feature of this combo is Full HD video recording at up to 60p and the ability to output the video live over an HDMI cable.
Body design is critical when it comes to compact long zoom cameras, and the G3 X delivers with multiple physical control points. A continuous ring is available on the lens barrel while an exposure compensation dial, mode dial, front dial, and controller wheel are also present to make adjustments. Additionally, it has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC (Near Field Communication) for direct connection with smartphones, tablets, and the CS100 Connect Station.

The redeveloped sensor and processor also combine to enable RAW imaging with 14-bit signal processing, the same used in Canon's EOS DSLRs, to provide high image quality with expanded post-processing capabilities.
