The Canon Powershot G series has always been some of the best cameras for casual photographers who want to take sweet photos but doesn’t want to touch a DSLR. Canon gives us more of the same with the newly released Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III, the first Canon compact camera equipped with Dual Pixel CMOS AF and an APS-C sized CMOS sensor. If you didn’t understand a single technical jargon we just mentioned, just know that it gives you bloody good image quality in a compact frame.
Well-tuned for Casual Photographers
The G series has always been about snapping great pictures while being easy to use. Let’s go through some of the things that the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III comes with that enhances this.
Firstly, it comes with enhanced noise reduction technology. This means you can shoot in low-light conditions and not end up with really noisy photos. It’s really useful because most casual photographers don’t have the luxury of shooting beautiful landscapes in the day. They tend to take photos indoors and at night – shooting pictures of their friends or at an event.
Speaking of friends, the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III is great for shooting people with its improved subject tracking. Fast actions and movements can be captured with stunning speed and ease. When tracking a moving subject, the camera is able to detect changes in its size and orientation, regardless of other subjects in the background.
Finally, the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III comes with a new panoramic feature. Pretty much like what you do with your iPhone, you can swivel the camera and take a photo of a vast landscapes easily. Perfect for those travelling moments where you’re trying to capture everything.
Bring it on your Holiday
The Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III is also an amazing camera for holidays. For one, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III is very compact. This is despite it housing a larger sensor and a built-in Electronic Viewfinder. In fact, it’s approximately 27% lighter compared to its predecessor. It’s therefore perfect for bringing everywhere without looking like a photographer-wannabe.
With a compatible Canon underwater casing, you can even take the camera underwater. It goes up to a depth of 40 metres in high clarity. This makes the PowerShot G1 X Mark III an excellent companion for diving and snorkelling trips. It’s also equipped with a number of features for underwater photography and movie shooting such as an underwater scene mode and underwater macro shooting.
