The New Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III is the Perfect Companion for Adventure-Seekers
Picturesque sceneries atop mountains and cliffs, lakeside views, the thrill of wildlife and the splendor of underwater can be captured in its fullest beauty with the newest addition to Canon’s range of compact cameras that shares capabilities of a full-range DSLR, and the perfect companion for adventure seekers – the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III.
“The new PowerShot G1 X Mark III features two firsts for Canon’s range of compact cameras – an APS-C sized imaging sensor used in DSLR cameras, and Dual Pixel CMOS AF, the largest imaging sensor in its compact camera lineup. This is the first Canon compact camera equipped with these two new sensors that produce higher image quality and high-speed AF for shooting convenience, which marks a new technology milestone for Canon,” shares Benny Yu, Director for Consumer Group of Canon Marketing Philippines, Inc. (CMPI).
Redefining Image Quality with Cutting Edge Technology
The latest DIGIC 7 image processor pushes forward the PowerShot G1 X Mark III’s capability to provide superior performance in speed and image quality. With the built-in noise reduction technology, users enjoy enriched image clarity with suppressed noise, even at high ISO speeds, making the PowerShot G1 X Mark III ideal for outdoor shoots or night scenes.
When tracking a moving subject, the camera is able to detect changes in its size and orientation regardless of other subjects in the background and still capture fast actions and movements with stunning speed and ease with its improved subject tracking performance.
The Auto Lighting Optimizer function corrects dark areas for clearer contrast and high image clarity in backlit conditions, while the high-precision subject detection feature allows subjects to be easily identified even under low-light conditions. When shooting with small apertures, the high processing performance on the DIGIC 7 image processor ensures that diffraction is suppressed to achieve image clarity.
A new panoramic feature will delight photographers with the ease of capturing captivating wide-angle panoramic shots by a simple horizontal or vertical swivel of the camera. This also allows photographers to have better resolution images, larger and more detailed prints, along with more cropping ability in post-processing.
Photo and Video Precision with Dual Pixel CMOS AF
A first in a Canon compact camera, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III is equipped with the Canon-developed Dual Pixel CMOS AF, allowing the camera to achieve unparalleled high-speed AF. Users can enjoy shooting both stills and videos of moving subjects with precision with the algorithm developed to minimize blurring, thus achieving image stabilization with high precision, its fast and smooth focus, and intelligent tracking function.
The compact camera is capable of attaining continuous shooting speed of 7fps during AF tracking and 9fps during AF fixed. With its Touch & Drag AF function, users will be able to touch and shift the focus points while looking through the electronic viewfinder, which makes capturing that prized moment much easier.
Powered by Dual Pixel CMOS AF and with features like the touch panel and built-in stereo microphone, users can hone their movie-making skills and shoot like a professional with the camera’s movie shooting function, capable of documenting expressions at a smooth frame rate of 60p in Full HD.
Rediscover Photography with Premium Features
Equipped with DIGIC 7 image processor, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III ups the ante in technology delivered by a compact camera that weighs approximately 399g. Designed with a 24-72mm (35mm film equivalent) f/2.8– f/5.6 IS lens with 3x optical zoom, the camera is capable of capturing a variety of outdoor subjects with a shallow depth of field. Photography lovers will appreciate better quality images reflected by the camera sensor when shooting and view their photos in hi-resolution through the Electronic View Finder (EVF) that contains 2.36 million dots.
With consistent exposure to the outdoors, the camera body is dust and drip-proof for adequate protection from moisture and dust, truly apt for versatile use and durability. Meanwhile, the vari-angle LCD touch screen allows users to experiment with different angles by flipping the screen horizontally and tilting the screen vertically, which can come in handy when taking selfies.
Updating your social media accounts with real-time photos and updates of your adventure will be a breeze with the camera’s Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity paired to smart devices. With the built-in Bluetooth technology, users don’t have to worry about battery draining. The constant connection allows users to view images and start remote capture and control of settings from the camera even when in Auto Power Off mode.
A treat children of the sea will be able to enjoy is the camera’s capability to shoot the beauty of the underwater up to a depth of 40 meters with full precision when paired with the Canon underwater casing (WP-DC56). Users can enjoy underwater photography and videography and alter settings such as the white balance using the underwater scene mode, with the effects matching that of a commercially available color-compensating filter. Users can also delight in shooting the vast marine life up close with the camera’s underwater macro shooting feature.
