Canon Powershot G3 X: Conclusion
The latest Canon PowerShot G3 X offers the possibility of shooting photographs and videos at maximum capacity, quick, self-orientation, intuitive, configurable handling as well as a solid structure and offers a powerful, super-zoom camera for enthusiastic photographers. Sadly, it is pretty saddened by the unusual lack of an integrated viewfinder – attempting to retain the Canon Power Shot G3 X in its arm and utilizing all of the 25x zoom lenses contributes to so many misses due to camera shooting. You should, of course, install the optional costly electronic viewfinder, but all have a built-in viewfinder and cost less than the Off-of-the-box G3 X (the Lumix FZ1000 and Sony CyberShot DSC-RX10) of G3 X’s key competitors.
Thanks to a 1-inch sensor at its heart, the picture quality of the G3 X is exceptional for a small camera. If you ever needed a fixed lens camera for DSLR photos then just look at the G3 X. It’s quick f/2.8-5.6 and it produces a good bokeh on both ends of the wide-open zoom. It obviously cannot yet fit a compact system camera with a DSLR or an APS-C fitted with higher ISO speeds, but ISO 100-1600, which can’t be said with very much, is eminently useful in backup with 3200.
The Canon PowerShot G3 X again provides a reassuringly sturdy and drop-resistant metal chassis and a range of customizable settings, like the lens control loop. This is the best approach in terms of construction efficiency and handling. The monitor knob and the exposure correction dial are both fantastic things when tilting LCD touchscreens, folding pop-up flash, and the AF 31-point device.
For more professional shooters, the Canon PowerShot G3 X is almost a decent super-zoom camera, but the option not to have an integrated visualizer renders the G3 X an almost miss…
