24.2 Megapixel* CMOS (APS-C) Sensor & ISO 100–25600

Don't let the PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera’s size deceive you. This all-in-one, compact camera features a large 24.2 Megapixel* CMOS (APS-C) sensor, the same sensor found in many interchangeable lens cameras. This sensor allows the PowerShot G1 X Mark III to shoot breathtaking, nuanced images with wide dynamic range, amazing detail and low noise, even at high ISOs. It enables significant cropping and large prints of still images while delivering phenomenal movie files perfect for sharing or projecting. Paired with a wide ISO range of 100–25600, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III can deliver sharp and detailed results in virtually any lighting situation.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Vari-angle LCD

The PowerShot G1 X Mark III marks Canon’s first PowerShot camera to feature the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system, which uses phase-detection and offers incredibly fast and precise autofocus that stays locked onto your subject, even if your subject is in motion, for both photos and videos. Use it with Live View on the Vari-angle Touchscreen 3.0-inch LCD monitor, which features touch-sensitive controls that make it easy to select and adjust focus and other settings. The Vari-angle monitor can also rotate to help capture creative shots at a variety of angles.

Canon 24–72mm Zoom Lens with Optical Image Stabilizer

The PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera’s results are in large part thanks to its 3x optical zoom lens. With a range of 24–72mm^^, advanced Optical Image Stabilization and an aperture range of f/2.8 (W) – f/5.6 (T), the lens works in concert with the camera’s CMOS sensor and DIGIC 7 Image Processor to deliver incredibly stunning results. The Dual Sensing IS system helps provide steady images by compensating for body movement and camera shake for up to 4 stops of correction, while the wide maximum aperture helps deliver dramatic blur effects and enables better shooting in dark areas.

Electronic Viewfinder with Touch and Drag AF

The built-in high-resolution electronic viewfinder features approximately 2,360,000 dots so you can see high amounts of detail in what you’re capturing even on bright, sunny days. Its Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology offers high-contrast, colorful images that can help properly display the scene you want to capture. Touch and Drag AF lets you use the rear screen as a touchpad while you’re looking through the viewfinder so you can choose what to focus on with a tap of your finger.

Intuitive Control

The PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera is designed for intuitive, speedy operation. Thanks to its intelligently placed wheels and dials, it’s easy to control every aspect of the photographic process, all while looking through the viewfinder. Feel free to change the aperture or zoom in using the barrel mounted ring, or adjust settings with the front dial, the thumb-accessible controller or the exposure compensation dials. The PowerShot G1 X Mark III’s array of controls can be customized for any number of shooting styles to suit your preference.

Panoramic Shot Mode

The PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera is designed to make panoramic photography simple yet intriguing. Whether capturing vertical or horizontal pictures, it’s easy to switch to the dedicated Panoramic Shot Mode and start shooting by pushing down the shutter button and panning the camera. Captured images are automatically combined in the camera for dramatic, expressive panoramas that will delight and impress.

Compact, Lightweight & Dust-/Water-resistant

Gorgeous to behold, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera is sophisticated both in appearance and performance. Its elegantly compact design makes it easy to take with you to virtually any shooting situation. Ready to perform in numerous environments, it’s constructed to help resist dust, water, sand and other harsh material, with sealing applied to cover any gaps and a precisely designed outer cover.

Wireless Technology

With built-in Wi-Fi®/NFC and Canon’s universal Camera Connect app**, the camera makes it easy to share pictures and connect directly to other cameras, compatible mobile devices**, PictBridge (Wireless LAN) certified printers and select social networking sites. A Remote Live View function is also included to help you remotely record video, and features remote control start and stop capabilities when using a compatible smart device. With compatible Android devices***, connection is as simple as tapping the devices together. The options are endless: share and transfer images and video right away from almost anywhere you go, and even shoot remotely from your smartphone or tablet**. Bluetooth®^ pairing lets you easily connect to and remotely control the camera from compatible smartphones using the free Canon Camera Connect app**. It also sends continuously updated GPS^^^ location data from your phone, letting you geotag your shots.
