Photography Blog has completed their extensive review of Canon’s brand new flagship compact camera, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III.
From Photography Blog:
The Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III is the smallest G-series camera to date, yet remarkably it has the largest image sensor of any G-series camera ever released, featuring the same APS-C sensor with Dual Pixel CMOS AF system as the EOS 80D and M5 cameras and therefore offering DSLR-like levels of image quality from what is after all a pocketable compact camera. There are a few notable drawbacks, though, with the increase in sensor size necessitating a shorter, slower lens, the puzzling continued lack of 4K video shooting, and also a significant increase in price compared to the previous model – £1149 / €1399 / $1299 is an awful lot to ask for a compact camera with a slow-ish 3x lens.
