Canon G1X Mark III Overview

  • 1Description

Raising the imaging bar for Canon's series of advanced compact cameras once again, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III is distinguished by its larger sensor and versatile all-around imaging capabilities. A first for a PowerShot, the G1 X Mark III sports a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 7 processor to realize notable image clarity, a wide sensitivity range from ISO 100-25600, an impressive continuous shooting rate up to 9 fps, and Full HD 1080p/60 video recording. The sensor's design also facilitates Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which offers quick and accurate phase-detection autofocus that benefits both stills and video applications. Balancing the improved sensor design is a versatile 3x zoom lens, which covers a 24-72mm equivalent focal length range to suit working in a variety of situations. An Optical Image Stabilizer is also featured, to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld.

In addition to the updated sensor and processor capabilities, the G1 X Mark III also features a refined physical design complete with a built-in 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder and a 3.0" vari-angle touchscreen for easier, more intuitive control. Dedicated dials about the camera body afford direct adjustment of shooting settings and modes, and both a pop-up flash and a hot shoe are available. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi with NFC and Bluetooth connectivity enable wireless pairing with a mobile device for remote live view shooting and image transferring.

24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 7 Image Processor
Both a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 7 image processor are used to deliver high sensitivity and fast camera performance to suit both stills and video applications. 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 quickened 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
Dual Pixel CMOS AF offers smooth and fast focusing performance in a similar manner to how a 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. When shooting video, a Movie Servo AF mode offers smooth and natural focusing when changing from different subjects or different distances within the scene, as well as the ability to specify tracking sensitivity, AF speed, and Face Tracking priority. Benefited by the Touch AF system, rack focus is possible simply by touching elements within the scene on the touchscreen in order to change focus in an intuitive manner. Subject tracking in movies is also heightened due to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system's ability to recognize subjects and maintain focus when working within changing or cluttered scenery.
3x Optical Zoom Lens and Image Stabilizer
A built-in 3x zoom lens offers a versatile 24-72mm equivalent focal length range, covering a wide-angle to portrait-length reach. This f/2.8-5.6 lens also incorporates a Dual Sensing Optical Image Stabilizer system to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four stops for sharper handheld shooting.
Body Design and Wireless Connectivity
  • Integrated 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder offers a bright, clear eye-level means for composing imagery.
  • Rear 3.0" touchscreen is also available for intuitive playback, menu navigation, and live view shooting, and its vari-angle design benefits working from high and low angles.
  • When working with the electronic viewfinder, Touch and Drag AF lets you manually move the AF point selection using the rear touchscreen while keeping your eye to the finder.
  • Physical controls allow for intuitive settings adjustments, and include a front dial, an exposure compensation dial, and a top mode dial, as well as dedicated rear buttons and dials.
  • Built-in pop-up flash can be used for additional illumination and a hot shoe is also featured for working with an optional external flash or other shoe-mounted accessory.
  • The body has a dust- and moisture-resistant physical design to permit its use in trying environmental conditions.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows for easy wireless sharing of both photos and movies to a linked mobile device.
  • Bluetooth permits linking a smartphone or tablet for quick image sharing between devices as well as remote control capabilities.

Canon G1X Mark III Reviews

PowerShot G1 X Mark III Digital Camera is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I have been waiting for. Good job Canon!? This camera is SMALL, and very well built. I bought it to use primarily as a hiking camera and to carry with me when my D7100 is just too big and heavy. So far I am very pleased with my purchase. The 24 mp sensor delivers? excellent images. I have read a lot of comments on line regarding the "slow" lens. Since almost all of the photos I will be taking with this camera will be in bright sunlight at ISO 100, the perceived slowness of the lens is not an issue for me. Looking forward to getting up into the mountains and taking a lot of photos this spring and summer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great overall camera, but needs a lens makeover. This camera is targeted to photographers looking for DSLR type controls in a very compact size. That is why I bought it. I have several 5DM4 and 5DM3 bodies, so this camera was to be for those times I needed a compact. The controls are excellent but the lens was disappointing. So I returned the camera only because of the lens. I would buy it again if Canon changed the zoom f/2.8-5.6 and replaced it with a superior fixed focal length lens with improved maximum aperture. I would rather forego the zoom feature if that provided a higher grade glass. In post we can always crop tighter if required.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is definitely compact and could substitute for a Dslr First of all, I received this camera 1 week earlier than the expected available date! Thanks, B&H! I purchased this camera by trading in some older glass, and the price of the G1X mark iii was not a big issue. I had tried the G1Xm ii at the store this past winter and was contemplating purchasing it then. After reading the rumors of an updated version, I let the purchase go. I also liked the compactness and eye level finder of the M5 as well as the option to use my other lenses with the additional adaptor. Purchasing the G1X was a difference of about 200.00, so I took the plunge.? Some background about this purchase - I use 1DXs and L glass. I am used to the weight, size and girth of this equipment, and would happily pick them as a first choice. But I wanted a compact camera to travel with and to discreetly photograph my family at our gatherings. After using the G1X over Thanksgiving, I have some initial thoughts and observations. Pros - 1. It's a solid camera. It feels good in your hands. It feels grippy.? 2. Images are decent; I cannot shoot RAW yet. 3. It has a cool function that allows you to get both a video clip and then a still image. Cool for having a video reference of the image. 4. The camera is very portable in pants or jackets. That's why I bought it. Cons - 1. If you use a mid to pro level Canon, this camera will take some effort to adjust ?because your grip, buttons and controls are closer together. 2. The back focus button is too difficult to utilize because it both lowers your thumb and places it very close to your index finger, thus making the grip awkward. I tried to assign the back focus function to the record button, which was a little better, but negates the function of the record button. I had to take extra steps to use video with this set up. 3. Using both hands to operate the camera while using the eyepiece places your elbows touching the sides of your body. Doing this for an extended time became uncomfortable. You could certainly change up by using one hand and the screen. 4. You can do some customizing of the the buttons and dials, but you will be limited. It's no where near the custom functions of a dslr. 5. The rear control dial is both small and again makes your thumb very close to your index finger. Awkward trying to turn it one handed. You need both hands to operate it. 6. Bridge does not recognize RAW files yet. 7. I wasn't expecting the lens to extend out so far when turning the power on at its widest focal length. 8. I wish I could assign the aperture, shutter or iso function to the top exposure compensation dial. It's easier to rotate than the back or front dials for any of those assignments. My thumb and index finger can rotate the dial while maintaining the grip with my middle finger. I'll update as I get more use of this camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Camera Purchased this Camera for an upcoming trip to India. I usually carry a Canon Powershot whenever I travel; they are small ?Photo Making Jewels. The G1 X Mark III up the game with a much larger sensor, but not a substantial increase in size.? My initial testing shows that the camera delivers Sharp Images that have considerable Dynamic range, allowing for much flexibility when Processing the Raw Images in Lightroom.? So far, I’m impressed !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-rounded travel camera I have a DSLR but wanted something smaller for travel and everyday use. I wanted a zoom, low-light capability, and great image quality, even when cropping. This camera has all the features I was looking for and fits in my coat pocket or purse. I have average-sized hands for a woman and find the camera comfortable to shoot. I especially like being able to avoid menus while shooting, using dials and buttons to set aperture, shutter speed, ISO, spot metering, etc. Focus is zippy and accurate, even in low light. I love the touchscreen focus and use it with my thumb while looking through the viewfinder. (You can designate a section of the screen for focusing, which helps avoid problems with your nose or face touching the screen.) The weather sealing is a plus; I’ve had it out in a snow storm with no problems. My biggest concern was image quality after seeing mixed results in various online reviews, but I’ve been extremely pleased with what this camera produces. Images are sharp. The excellent image stabilization allows me to shoot handheld at very slow shutter speeds without problems, which is great for low-light still shots. Noise is very manageable up to about ISO 6400, with good retention of detail. Note: I shoot RAW and edit in Photoshop, which helps me get the most out of this camera. JPEGs are sharp in bright light but can be softer in low light due to Canon’s noise reduction.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Easy To Use / Small / Lens Is A Disappointment I've been using this camera now for 10 days.? It is great to walk around with.? Small and light.? The controls are familiar if you are a Canon DSLR user.? Touch screen and viewfinder are topnotch. The only disappointment is the image quality.? The small lens really does not deliver sharp photos.? I've tried all f-stops and focusing techniques.? It actually focuses quite well and quickly.? But the photos are just not very sharp.? Details are not sharp and are smudged in the distance.? I may be overreacting and expecting too much.? I also use the 5DS and L lenses, so I am used to a lot of resolution and razor sharp images.? I was hoping this sensor and lens would deliver at least half as much, but I'm afraid it doesn't.? Yes, you can sharpen the images and add contrast in DPP 4, and I have produced some wonderful images that way. Unfortunately the RAW images right out of the camera are not great and not all of them can be salvaged in DPP 4 (Canon's excellent free software program for processing images and for converting RAW to JPG.)? Many of you may be very satisfied with the JPG images which this camera produces.? It does a good job of automatically adding sharpening. I must say I am disappointed since I was expecting more from this camera.? It looks like the image quality is not as good as those produced by the M5 and 80D which use the same sensor but which have a choice of lenses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful little camera I'm upgrading my original G1X and this camera has fixed all my little issues with it. ?The G1X3 has a very sharp lens, as good or better than my G1X or 15-85. ?I compared the G1X3 at the wide end with my 16-35f4L and 24-105f4L at 24mm on my 5D3 and found it equally sharp in the center and?close to the 16-35 and equal to 24-105 at the edges after lens corrections in Lightroom. ?The G1X3 lens correction recipe is built into the raw file. ?Its sharper at f4 than f5.6 at 15mm. ?The wide edges are the G1X3's weakest so it passed all my other comparisons with flying colors. ?The images look good next to those from my DSLRs and L zooms. The AF and handling are very fast for a compact. ?In one shot there is a small time lag after taking a shot before the AF or zoom will work again. ?Still it will achieve 7 fps with AF in multishot. ?The electronic viewfinder works so well that I've been using it almost exclusively. ?The adjustment ring around the lens works well for fine zoom or manual focus adjustment. ?Focus peaking and sweeping panorama generation are nice new features to me. ?It still has all the features I've come to depend on in my G1X including an underwater housing. Its really a well engineered little camera, the 1D of compacts. ?I dropped mine from waist height onto a linoleum floor while fiddling the wrist strap and it survived without issue. ?Fortunately the camera was off and lens retracted at the time. ?Only the filter and lens cap protrude from the body when retracted. ?It takes a 37mm polarizer without vignetting. ?It weighs less than a pound, is about the size of my G10, and fits in a smallish belt pouch. ?I would find the zoom range limiting if this were my only camera but 24-70 is a useful range and a great 2nd body to have when I have a telephoto on my DSLRs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Holy Grail of compact photography? Perhaps. I've owned the EOS M5, M3 and G1X II before it and tried the G5X and RX100 series but it's only been this latest mark III, which the saying of the third one being the charm has rung true. AF is fast and accurate (faster then my former M5). Fast continuous shooting with quiet shutter. Metering, WB and colors are spot on (as usual for a Canon). Handling (touch and drag via touchscreen, buttons, dials) and EVF is nice and very intuitive. Lens sharpness is very good (pack leading for a zoom lens point and shoot); it's just shy of a zoom kit lens on DSLR, but, will fit in a pocket which is CRAZY and sensor resolution and image malleability are excellent (once again, especially for a point and shoot). Other point and shoots can only dream of coming this close to a DSLR, but can't. So far it's stood up to sand and mild water exposure so the weather sealing thus far is holding. That leaf shutter permits 1/2000 with flash; VERY useful for strong backlit subjects in outdoor light permitting shallow depth of field and flash; I'm very anti-flash and this camera is forcing me to revisit flash photography as it's quite good. There are a few minor nitpicks, minor... The front lens dial is smooth, no click feedback which isn't to my liking. Some folks like it, I don't. Although I'm not a back button shooter, the exposure lock, which is the only assignable button for BBF, is not ideally placed. Battery life when shooting video in particular is notable. I do advise, like any compact, a spare battery as such. Stills battery life is excellent though; I get well over the 200 shot rating. Easily 400+ That lens cap is annoying, I've got a lens hood on order which will become my lens cap effectively for protection purposes once it arrives. A bit pricey, but, compared to it's peers, that won't get you Canon colors, DPAF for smooth and accurate video or best in class point and shoot AF, the sharpest zoom lens in a compact to date, a touchscreen (with touch and drag at that), weather sealing and a point and shoot that's a pleasure to use, it's worth it if you're looking for a personal camera so you don't have lug around something much larger, but still get the shot. It's truly a power-shot, very smart, very reliable, it gets the job done and blows smartphone photography right out of the water, but is small enough to take with your everywhere. I've found it to be quite versatile, and hasn't failed me yet in any regard, at all, which is saying a lot. As I said, I've found "it", after a 5 year journey that started with a G1X II, and ended here. This will be with me for a long time to come, just like a trusty FF would.
