Featuring an APS-C sized sensor for the first time, plus the speed of Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS Auto Focus system and premium DIG!C 7 processor, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III is a killer combination of DSLR image quality with the handing never before seen in a Canon compact camera.

Superb image quality in every condition
Leveraging an exceptional sensor, similar to the one seen in the EOS 80D, and with capabilities to shoot in an ISO range of 100 to 25,600, the PowerShot G1X Mark III can flexibly capture quality images in a range of conditions. From high contrast scenes, such as indoor environments where detail, clarity and low image noise are critical, to low contrast scenarios such as a foggy days. The built in 3x zoom lens boasts a versatile 24 – 72 mm (35 mm equiv) focal range and a close-focusing distance of just 10cm, so you can cover an impressive range of photography genres with a single lens.

Super fast auto focus and exceptional subject tracking
With the first inclusion of Dual Pixel CMOS AF in a Canon Compact camera, the PowerShot G1X Mark III delivers precise and rapid focus in just 0.09 seconds, giving the level of responsiveness, speed and confidence needed for capturing a spontaneous shot at a moment’s notice.

Beautiful handling
This camera not only feels good to use, but its features enable a familiar DSLR level of instinctiveness and control, alongside the ability to customise it for your own use. The PowerShot G1 X Mark III comprises a central, built-in Electronic Viewfinder (EVF), which has been optimised to deliver a high-resolution view via a 2.36 million dot Organic EL display. For the more adventurous photographer, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III features weather sealing for durable performance in challenging conditions  and as an increased level of protection against dust and moisture.
