Canon PowerShot G3 X

 

The Canon PowerShot G3 X is a compact camera that tries to offer it all: a massive zoom range plus a fairly large 1in sensor to get you good image quality for a compact fixed-lens device. Despite its relatively small size, it's a pretty serious...

Immensely versatile zoom range ; Quality construction ; Good general image quality for a superzoom

No EVF ; Poor RAW shooting performance ; Worse max aperture than rivals

Canon PowerShot G3 X review

 

This compact's huge zoom range makes it a camera for all seasons

Versatile zoom lens ; Sharp images ; Sturdy, weatherproof build

No electronic viewfinder ; No 4K video

A jack of all trades and a master of some, the Canon’s limited video options and lack of a viewfinder hold it back from true greatness

Canon G3 X review

 

A versatile, if bulky, compact camera with incredible reach and excellent picture quality

High-quality 24-600mm lens ; Good image quality ; Good dynamic range and high ISO performance ; High-resolution touchscreen

No built-in viewfinder ; Not pocket-friendly ; No vari-angle screen ; No panorama mode ; No 4K video

The G3 X delivers SLR-like zoom capabilities in a compact package thanks to its excellent lens and image stabilisation, only falling down when faced with fast-moving subjects. It's not a beautiful camera, but it's well built and easy to handle.

Canon Powershot G3 X Review

 

Reviewed: The Canon Powershot G3 X with a 24-600mm equivalent lens and a larger than normal sensor, could this be the best ultra zoom available? Find out in our review.

Longest optical zoom lens with a 1inch sensor ; Very good noise performance ; Weather-sealed body ; Built in Wi-Fi and NFC ; High resolution 3.2inch tilting touch screen ; 7fps continuous shooting (JPEG images) ; Mic / Headphone sockets ; High build...

Aperture quickly drops to f/4.0 at 45mm equivalent ; Alternatives offer built in electronic viewfinder ; Slow raw recording in continuous shooting ; Alternatives offer 4K video recording and quicker continuous shooting ; Doesn't offer an automatic...

The Canon Powershot G3 X offers a large 1inch sensor and the longest optical zoom available with this size sensor, which makes the camera quite chunky, but also quite small in comparison to other cameras with the same sensor such as the FZ1000 and...

Canon PowerShot G3 X review

 

With a 1-inch sensor and 24x zoom, the PowerShot G3 X is an excellent mega-zoom camera worthy of enthusiasts.

The PowerShot G3 X is an excellent mega-zoom camera that’s far stronger than the company’s SX series – it makes sense since the SX is designed for casual shooters, while the G-series cameras are for advanced users. If you want quality and can afford...

Canon PowerShot G3 X

 

The Canon PowerShot G3 X couples excellent image quality with a long zoom range, but it really needs a built-in EVF.

Long zoom range. 1-inch image sensor. Tilting touch-screen display. Framing assist function. Hot shoe supports add-on EVF and Canon Speedlites. Mic and headphone connections. Built-in ND filter. Sealed against dust and moisture. Wi-Fi.

Focus on the sluggish side. Slow burst rate when shooting Raw. Takes a while to turn on. EVF is a pricey accessory.

Conclusions The Canon PowerShot G3 X is an ambitious camera—it has the longest zoom range among models with a 1-inch sensor. That, as well as the image quality advantages of its large image sensor make it, on paper, an ideal travel camera. But there...

Canon PowerShot G3 X First impressions review

 

The PowerShot G3 X sits above the G7 X in Canon's lineup of compact cameras, offering a much longer zoom range, tilting LCD screen and a hot shoe. We've been poring over the specification sheet for a while, and have prepared a quick run-down of its key...

Canon PowerShot G3 X

 

Outstanding image quality in all shooting conditions ; 25x optical zoom lens ; Lens moves fast throughout zoom range ; Above average shutter lag and burst performance in JPEG versus other large zoom cameras ; High-quality, large LCD screen that's a...

Expensive starting price ; No built-in viewfinder ; Problems with camera shake when using maximum telephoto setting and hand holding G3 X ; Slow burst mode performance in RAW ; Bulky camera that weighs more than 1.5 pounds ; On the model I tested,...

The Canon PowerShot G3 X certainly has some of the same drawbacks that you find with other fixed lens, large zoom cameras, but its extremely good image quality more than makes up for those issues. Add in a tiltable, high-resolution, touch screen LCD, a...
