Product Features

Serious Imaging Power

1.0-inch, 20.2 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS Sensor

The PowerShot G3 X camera's 1.0-inch sensor achieves a beautiful balance between high sensitivity and high image quality. The sensor is able to collect more light in a shorter time period without the overflow that causes blown-out highlights. This means better detail and sophisticated tonal quality, with rich gradations even at high ISO speeds all the way to 12800. A high signal-to-noise ratio delivers minimal noise and distortion with breathtaking dynamic range, particularly notable in bright areas. And photography enthusiasts will appreciate the changes in image processing for the PowerShot G3 X, which include target exposure value and contrast characteristics of highlights. Thanks to this change, dynamic range in bright areas is expanded with gradation attributes that are similar to EOS. Also, by changing the exposure index standard, it is possible to shoot at almost the same brightness with the same aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings as EOS. The PowerShot G3 X natively captures images in the 3:2 aspect ratio, which is the same as Canon EOS SLR cameras. The camera's image creation technology was designed with post processing in mind, and features an Aspect Ratio function, enabling RAW image capture in 16:9, 3:2, 4:3 and 1:1 aspect ratios while maintaining the same angle of view.

Canon DIGIC 6 Image Processor

The PowerShot G3 X camera is powered by the latest iteration of Canon's proprietary processor, the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, which takes still and video image quality to a beautiful new level. Improved light sensitivity allows for higher resolution with less noise when shooting in dark conditions, and Dynamic IS now detects and compensates for tilt and parallel movement (shift blur) to create video that's exceptionally free of distortion. The DIGIC 6 Image Processor also enhances the performance capabilities of the PowerShot G3 X, powering full resolution high-speed continuous still shooting (even in P, Av, Tv and M modes) and the advanced star shooting modes. The processor allows for MP4 video recording for better compatibility with mobile devices and tablets. Highly compressed MP4 video not only preserves space on your memory card but also improves playback on mobile devices. The new processor also supports an MF Peaking function, giving you a pro-level focusing tool.

Digic 6 Processor

Canon HS SYSTEM

The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you take bright, clear photos as they happen, whether the light is cooperating or not. Beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and truly impressive detail in both highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies in the PowerShot G3 X camera: the large format 1.0-inch High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor, which captures more light; and the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, which actively reduces noise at high ISO speeds up to 12800 and processes images at high speed, even at full resolution. Experience the freedom of using higher shutter speeds in far more situations, allowing you to capture images with exceptional clarity and detail.

Brilliantly Versatile New Lens

25x, f/2.8–5.6 Optical Zoom Lens (24–600mm)

The PowerShot G3 X incorporates a powerful 25x Optical Zoom (24–600mm) lens for seamless telephoto shooting and unmatched versatility. You'll capture everything from the widest landscapes to dynamic close-ups in precise detail – all without changing a lens. The culmination of decades of EF lens know-how, the bright, all-new f/2.8–5.6 lens uses cutting-edge construction to prevent aberration and peripheral illumination loss over the entire telephoto range, delivering reliably high image quality with every shot. The lens's 9-blade aperture diaphragm creates beautiful circular background blur. Micro USM II drives the high-speed, silent zoom, with smooth, high-precision focusing for professional-quality video shooting.

Intelligent IS 

It's easy to capture clear, steady images with PowerShot digital cameras, even in low light without using a tripod. That's because the camera is equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS. The system automatically analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation – allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. For stills, the system selects from Normal IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Active Tripod IS modes. New icons clearly mark the image stabilization mode, whether you're shooting still images or video.

Capture More Angles - Even Selfies

High-resolution Multi-angle Touch Panel LCD

The PowerShot G3 X camera's LCD screen can tilt up 180°, so taking that perfect selfie is a snap! In fact, the multi-angle LCD encourages creative framing because it's easy to achieve a flexible array of camera angles. Capacitive touch-panel operation feels familiar right away: simply touch to access quick control settings, focus and shutter release right on screen. A resolution of 1.62 million pixels makes the glare-free display ultra crisp and clear, so it's easy to compose your shots, choose camera settings, and review and share your images.

Continuous Shooting Gives You the Shot You Want

Full Resolution Continuous Shooting and High-Speed AF 

Powered by the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, the PowerShot G3 X camera gives you a seamless, high-speed continuous shooting (up to 5.9 fps) experience that's fully available in P, Tv, Av, M and Auto modes. Shooting and processing are now performed in tandem, reducing buffering time to deliver high shooting speeds. With the higher AF speed (up to approx. 0.20 seconds), achieving focus nearly the instant the camera is aimed is made possible. With no separate mode setting and no reduction in image quality, you can freeze brilliant action shots with ease.

31 AF Points 

With 31 focus points arranged in an expanded, wide pattern across the image plane, the PowerShot G3 Xcamera focuses with admirable speed and precision. Smaller focus frame sizes also make it possible to obtain accurate focus on small subjects. The PowerShot G3 X also supports 1-point and Touch AF.
