    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.

    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.

    Capture More Angles – Even Selfies

    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.

    1080p Full HD and Expanded Movie Options

    With its large sensor and high performance lens the PowerShot G3 X camera creates spectacular 1080p Full HD video, but this premium model takes video–making even further with several high–end features. Set video capture to your shooting needs: 24p, 30p or 60p, with MP4 format available for easy sharing. Advanced audio includes expanded dynamic range, better S/N ratio, and external microphone and headphone jacks. Improved Dynamic IS significantly reduces shaking caused by handheld shooting. Manual controls (Av, Tv and ISO) can be set prior to and during shooting for full creative expression, and Manual Focus is also available. Shooting to commercial specifications is now possible with five aspect ratio grid line options, HDMI Live Out for checking images on an external monitor, and an Advanced Tripod Hole for smooth panning and tilting.

    Continuous Shooting

    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.

    Built–in Wi–Fi® Makes Sharing Quick And Easy

    The PowerShot G3 X features built–in Wi–Fi® technology for on–the–go convenience when you want to share your photos and videos with friends, family and the whole world. Easily post your images to social networking and media sites – Facebook®, Twitter®, YouTube™, Flickr®, aand Google Drive™ – through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY directly from your PowerShot camera, or save them to the online photo album to share anytime, anywhere. The camera can also connect directly to both iOS® and Android™ devices, and upload images via the free Canon Camera Connect app without a computer. You can control the destination of your uploads to share with everyone or to selected groups, and even add comments. Sharing video is also easy with Wi–Fi® equipped PowerShot cameras, which record video using the easy–to–share MP4 format. Enhanced Wi–Fi® makes posting in real time possible, so you can keep everyone up to date with photos and video even as events unfold. Wi–Fi® technology also allows you to transfer images to other Wi–Fi® equipped PowerShot cameras or print your photos directly to a PictBridge (Wireless LAN) certified printer.

    Canon Connect Station CS100

    The PowerShot G3 X camera is fully compatible with Canon's brand new photo and video storage device: Connect Station CS100. By simply tapping with NFC, photos and videos are wirelessly transferred to the Connect Station, where up to 1 TB of hard drive space and simple menus make them easy to store, manage and sort by albums, date or device name. From there, images and videos can be viewed in Full HD on an HDTV (via an HDMI cable), sent to compatible wireless printers, viewed/uploaded/downloaded from smartphones and tablets or PCs, and shared with other Canon Connect Stations and on social networking sites.

    Convenient Controls Provide Intuitive Manual Adjustment

    The PowerShot G3 X camera's thoughtfully designed controls will satisfy even advanced photographers. The front dial makes easy setting changes possible, with customizable zoom, Tv and Av assignments. An exposure compensation dial is easily accessed from the secure, concave thumb grip, and keeps pace as you quickly and actively create images. A controller wheel and dedicated Movie button all contribute to the camera's quick, convenient operability.

    Capture the Night Sky, Brilliantly Star Shooting Mode

    Starry skies were formerly out of reach to all but experienced SLR camera users, however, star shooting modes on the PowerShot G3 X camera make these wonderfully impressive images accessible to all. With just a tripod and simple settings, you can capture exquisite Star Nightscapes, Star Trails and Star Time–Lapse Movies. The modes can be performed fully automatically or with manual controls for extra versatility. Support functions including Night Display, Color Adjustment and Star Emphasis make any starry sky easier to capture.

    Dust And water Resistant Construction

    Just like with select EOS models, the PowerShot G3 X camera features pinpoint alignment and rubber sealing that
