According to the rumors from last month, it was suggested that Canon had a new camera in the works in the form of the PowerShot G1 X Mark III that could be announced this month. It turns out the rumors were right on the money because Canon has since officially taken the wraps off the PowerShot G1 X Mark III.
The camera will feature a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor along with the use of a DIGIC 7 image processor. Similar to its predecessors, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III will be a fixed lens camera and will come with a 24-72mm (35mm equivalent) 3x zoom lens, and given that focal length we reckon it should allow photographers to cover a variety of shots. Its aperture will range from f/2.8 at the widest to f/5.6 at max focal length which is pretty standard, but at f/2.8 we don’t expect you will get the same level of bokeh compared to that of f/1.4 or wider.
It will also come with a built-in EVF, a 3-inch vari-angle touchscreen LCD, dual pixel CMOS AF, image stabilization technology, an ISO range of up to 25,600, 9fps continuous shooting speeds, and there will also be built-in WiFi, NFC, and Bluetooth connectivity. The camera will also offer up dust and water-resistance, so taking it along with you for outdoor shoots should not pose a problem.
If this sounds like a camera you might be interested in getting your hands on, the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III will be made available this coming November where it will be priced at $1,299.
