Canon G1X Mark III Camera Spotted at Russian Certification Agency ?

Canon powershot G1X Mark III

We have spotted a new camera and a new Electronic viewfinder on Russian Certification Agency. The code name of the camera is PC2325 and the code name of the EVF is DC2.

Canon EOS M5 with viewfinder

In the sketches we can clearly see upcoming EOS M5 does have external viewfinder.

According to latest leak the Canon EOS M5 camera coming with a built-in viewfinder. We have also seen the leaked sketches of the camera which is further more confirmed that it’s really EOS M5.

So, there is two possibility – Either Canon EOS M5 is coming without built-in viewfinder and the Leaked sketches above are fake OR Canon G1X Mark III is coming for sure.


The next possible announcement we expect from Canon is large sensor based Canon Powershot model Canon G1X Mark III, Canon G1X Mark II update is overdue and we have already said the Canon G1X Mark III announcement is inevitable.

So there is a big possibility Canon PC2325 is actually  Canon G1X Mark III and DC2 is it’s new external flash.

Stay with us and we will bring down more updates as we can.

Canon G1X Mark III Rumors

Canon G1X Mark II image

We are getting a lot of question by users – Should they buy Canon G1X Mark II or wait for Canon G1X Mark III ? Well as we all know that Canon updates its compacts camera in every one or two years. So we can expect a new camera soon since the update of G1X Mk 2 is overdue.

Canon G1X Mark II was announced on Feb, 12th 2014. The age of the current camera is approx 2 years, 6 months. But, if we look at the Canon G1X product life cycle it was only 2 year and 1 month. It directly means Canon G1X Mark III announcement is inevitable.

We have received some information in past, but it’s a very long gap and we haven’t got any rock solid information related to G1X Mk3 from our sources or other rumor mills.

We expect Canon will announce Canon G1X Mark III camera in Photokina event or in the first quarter of 2017. Canon also working on APS-C sensor based compact camera and we may see few big surprises in near future.

Breaking News: Canon 12-35mm Lens patent for 4/3 Sensor


We are surprised to see a Canon 12-35mm Lens patent made for a 4/3 sensor based camera,

Take a look at the patent details….


  • Patent Publication No. 2015-72369
    • Published 2015.4.16
    • Filing date 2013.10.3
  • Canon patents
    • Positive and negative positive and negative positive five-group zoom
    • Rear focus (fourth group)
    • Anti-vibration (part of the third group)

So we have the possibility…

1. Canon is silently working on a 4/3 sensor based mirrorless camera system to grab some mirrorless market share.

2. Canon G1X series compact camera (G1X and G1X Mk II) have 1.5 sensor , the 1.5 inch sensor is bit bigger compared to 4/3 sensor as you can see in the image above, So it is also possible that the Canon next big sensor compact camera, possibly Canon G17 or ultra compact version of current G1X Mk II camera will have 4/3 sensor loaded with the 12-35mm  lens.
