Canon G1X Mark III sensor size vs Canon G1X Mark II Sensor size

Canon G1X Mark III Sensor

Canon g1x mark 3 camera features a 24 megapixel dual pixel CMOS autofocus sensor where is the Canon g1x mark 2 camera limited to 1.5 inch sensor and 12 megapixel resolution.

AF System
and one thing also to be noted the Canon g1x mark 2 camera is based on contrast detect autofocusing system whereas the newly announced g1x Mark III camera features dual pixel CMOS sensor that will allow hybrid autofocusing inside the new compact camera.

Canon G1x mark 2 camera features a 1.5 inch g1x Mark 3 camera features APS-C sensor. Large sensor will get relatively more light compared to the small one and hence, you will get better low light performance compared to the older sensor.

Image Stabilization
Introduction of Dual IS (Image Stabilization) New generation of the camera arrived with better video image stabilization compared to the older one.
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.

Lens
Both Canon camera features 3X optical zoom, but the aperture of both the camera is different, basically Canon introduce new lens with the Mark III camera and you get F2.8(24mm) to 5.6(70mm). The aperture range of Canon G1X Mk II is better compared to G1X Mark III – F2.0-3.9 vs F2.8-5.6

ISO
The Canon G1X Mark III features bit broad ISO range, ISO 64 whereas the G1X Mark II ISO starts from ISO 125. More base ISO will allow you to capture more highlights and lowlights resulting moe dynamic range.

Battery Life
The Battery life of G1X Mark III is not so good, it will allow you to grab 200 shots. 200 shot is nothing for a shooter like me, So if I get this camera I will sure buy extra battery back with it.

Mic port absent

Canon G1X Mark III is pro grade camera with DPAF sensor.Pro Video bloggers often prefers big sensor camera with fast AF, but external mic phone is absent which is one of the most important thing for recording clear voice.

Weather Sealed
As far as I can remember the Canon G1X Mark III is the first compact camera from Canon that features weather sealing. A MUST HAVE feature for travel camera.

Price

G1X Mark III is approx 2X more than G1X Mark II

Verdict:

You should get Canon G1X Mark III camera budget isn’t a issue, since the camera have new sensor, DPAF system and new lens. New Image processor as well as Dual IS is also introduced.

If you are a G1X Mark II user then you can wait for Canon G1X Mark IV, since the relative aperture value of Canon G1X Mark II is better compared to G1X Mark III. so, some people might not feel comfortable in investing such a big amount on G1X Mk 3 and  at the end of the day you will get approx same image quality (despite of resolution difference).

Get Canon G1X Mark III from Amazon ($1299)
Get Canon G1X Mark II from Amazon ($649)

Landscape captured from this camera absolutely look fine, you can see details even when viewed at 100%.

In the next image, its look like photographer has used a auto portrait mode while shooting this portrait, that’s why the skin quality is so soft it’s looks plastic when viewed at 100%.

being a professional photographer I am not satisfied with the approach or method used with this camera to capture a portrait image, details are completely flat.

Details are flat, image look like a smartphone selfie.

The Canon g1x mark 3 camera features 3x optical zoom however the aperture of the camera starts from 2.8 and goes upto 5.6 which may cause of  depression among the professional photographers who uses bright lenses for their shoot.

we don’t have to think about the low light performance of the Camera sensor sensor is directly coming from EOSM5 / 80d, so the low light performance of the camera will be optimal.

Canon g1x Mark III camera is the fastest compact camera canon ever created with the help of dual pixel CMOS Technology. you don’t have to think twice about autofocusing a speed of the camera into going to do blazing fast auto focusing with the help of new hybrid autofocus sensor.

Unfortunately the camera record full HD videos only so if you are ok fine then you should wait for Panasonic LX 200 that is expected to arrive this year.
