24.2 Megapixel* CMOS (APS-C) Sensor

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.


3x Zoom Lens (24–72mm equivalent) 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.


Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Phase-detection

The PowerShot G1 X Mark III marks Canon's first PowerShot camera to feature the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system, which offers incredibly fast and precise autofocus that stays locked onto your subject, even if your subject is in motion, for both photos and videos. Equipped with phase-detection, this advanced Canon technology uses 24.2 million sensors to quickly determine how far away an object is and where the lens should focus, and is available while using the electronic viewfinder and when using Live View on the rear screen.


DIGIC 7 Image Processor, ISO 100–25600

The DIGIC 7 Image Processor powers the PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera to produce high image quality and fast operation, even in in low light. The camera features a wide ISO range of 100–25600 for still images and videos and can help keep results sharp and detailed in virtually any lighting situation. Powerful all around, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera can produce beautiful images even where light is limited.


Built-in EVF 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.


3.0-inch Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD

The PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera features a Vari-angle Touchscreen 3.0-inch ClearView LCD II monitor for capturing creative shots at a variety of angles and composing and reviewing photos and movies with ease. The touch sensitive controls make it easy to select and adjust focus, menu and quick control settings with a touch of a finger. The 1.04 million dot LCD monitor is constructed to help minimize reflections and treated with a smudge-resistant coating for a bright, clear and easily viewable display.


Built-in NFC Capability

With its built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) capability***, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera connects directly to compatible Android devices as well as Canon's Connect Station CS100 device by simply touching the NFC icon located on the camera to the device.


Built-in Bluetooth Capability

Bluetooth pairing helps you connect the camera to compatible smart devices using the free Canon Camera Connect app**. The Bluetooth® capability uses a low-energy connection that can be set to connect automatically upon discovery of the two devices and helps preserve battery life while maintaining a wireless connection. It also sends continuously updated GPS^^^ location data from your phone, letting you geotag your shots. You can also establish a direct Wi-Fi® connection to use your phone as a viewfinder, as well as check and download previously captured photos and videos.


Continuous Shooting at up to 7.0 fps (up to 9.0 fps with One Shot AF)

To help you capture that perfect shot or multiple shots of a fast-moving subject, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera is equipped with a DIGIC 7 Image Processor that allows the camera to perform quickly and shoot up to 7.0 frames per second (up to 9.0 fps with One Shot AF). A new shutter release button is optimized for the PowerShot G1 X Mark III's compact body and the camera is easy to hold for continuous shooting. Whether you're capturing an athlete scoring a goal or a bird soaring through the sky, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III is engineered to capture just the right moment.


Dust- and Water-resistant

The PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera is built to be both dust- and water-resistant for reliable operation in almost any number of conditions. With a combination of precise construction and sealing materials around the buttons, lens barrel, screen and battery compartment cover, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III is remarkably well-sealed. This robust construction helps keep sand, dust, dirt and water from getting into the camera, providing trustworthy performance whether you're shooting in the rain or at the beach.


Full HD 60p

Incredibly realistic 1080p Full HD video is recorded at 60 fps with stereo sound in convenient MP4 format. This format features a small file size that lets you fit more on a single memory card and makes downloading and sharing quick and easy. Manual movie mode lets you adjust settings and focus via the touch panel LCD screen. You can do this even while using the viewfinder to express your vision your way however you shoot – all from a powerfully compact camera.
