ePHOTOzine has completed their review of the brand new Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III. Canon's flaghship PowerShot camera which sports an APS-C 24mp image sensor.

From ePHOTOzine:

The Canon Powershot G1 X Mark III has taken the great usability of a Canon DSLR, and the 24mp APS-C CMOS sensor with phase-detection AF built-in, and squished it into a compact camera, whilst maintaining excellent handling and usability. They've also put a 3x zoom lens (24-72mm equivalent) on the front, with a relatively bright f/2.8 aperture at the wide-angle end of the lens.

What Canon is offering is unique, giving a 24mp APS-C CMOS sensor, and a 3x optical zoom lens, in a compact camera not much bigger than other compact cameras. We started this review by asking if Canon had made a true miniature DSLR in the size of a compact camera, and from the results, we would say they've succeeded. Whilst the camera doesn't have the battery life to match a DSLR, this can quickly be solved by the purchase of a spare battery or two. Read the full review

ePHOTOzine came away quite impressed with the camera. I don't think any is surprised that it's a good package, I think the biggest issues against it has been the price tag ($1299USD) and the lack of 4K video capture. I think this camera will sell decently once it sees a price drop.

I was personally surprised how well it felt in my hand once I had a few minutes to play with one.
