Canon has added a new compact camera to their range this week with the launch of the new Canon PowerShot G3 X-2 that is equipped with a 20.2-megapixel sensor offering a maximum 25,600 ISO.
The Canon G3 X-2 is also fitted with a 25X optical zoom with a 35mm equivalent 24-600mm field of view, together with a 2.36-megapixel EVR and a 3.2-inch multi-angle LCD screen on the rear.
The camera casing is both dust and water resistant and offer connectivity via both NFC and wireless support as wells being able to capture video at 1080p/60fps video.
The Canon PowerShot G3 X camera is the most rugged G-series model yet. The combination of enhanced body panel construction with rubber sealing helps ensure this dust-and-water resistant digital camera is ready to shoot action-packed adventures even in some of the most adverse conditions. It also features controls and menu operation inherited from the Canon EOS line of Digital SLR cameras, a first for the PowerShot G-Series. Useful controls include an Auto Exposure (AE) lock button, Auto Focus (AF) selection button and DRIVE/AF button.
For photography purists, the PowerShot G3 X camera fully supports both manual exposure control and the user’s choice of RAW, JPEG or RAW+JPEG recording formats. For quick camera setting, the PowerShot G3 X includes a programmable continuous ring on the lens, an exposure compensation dial and mode dial on top, and a rear control dial. Electronic Viewfinder EVF-DC1 featuring 2.36MP resolution and an adjustable viewing angle is also available as an optional accessory for the PowerShot G3 X to help users compose shots in bright, sunny conditions.
The new Canon PowerShot G3 X compact camera will be launching next month in July 2015 for an estimated price of $1,000
