Dual Pixel CMOS AF
with Vari-angle LCD
The PowerShot G1 X Mark III marks Canon’s first PowerShot camera to feature the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system, which uses phase-detection and offers incredibly fast and precise autofocus that stays locked onto your subject, even if your subject is in motion, for both photos and videos. Use it with Live View on the Vari-angle Touchscreen 3.0-inch LCD monitor, which features touch-sensitive controls that make it easy to select and adjust focus and other settings. The Vari-angle monitor can also rotate to help capture creative shots at a variety of angles.
Canon 24–72mm* Zoom Lens with Optical Image Stabilizer
The PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera’s results are in large part thanks to its 3x optical zoom lens. With a range of 24–72mm*, advanced Optical Image Stabilization and an aperture range of f/2.8 (W) – f/5.6 (T), the lens works in concert with the camera’s CMOS sensor and DIGIC 7 Image Processor to deliver incredibly stunning results. The Dual Sensing IS system helps provide steady images by compensating for body movement and camera shake for up to 4 stops of correction, while the wide maximum aperture helps deliver dramatic blur effects and enables better shooting in dark areas.

Touch and Drag AF lets you use the rear screen as a touchpad while you’re looking through the viewfinder so you can choose what to focus on with a tap of your finger.
The PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera is designed for intuitive, speedy operation. Thanks to its intelligently placed wheels and dials, it’s easy to control every aspect of the photographic process, all while looking through the viewfinder. Feel free to change the aperture or zoom in using the barrel mounted ring, or adjust settings with the front dial, the thumb-accessible controller or the exposure compensation dials.
