Canon G3 X vs. Sony RX10 II

Canon-PowerShot-G3-X-vs.-Sony-Cyber-shot-DSC-RX10-II-1

 We are doing a specification comparison here take a look at the major difference between both the camera…

Major Difference

Canon PowerShot G3 X vs. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 II Specification Comparison Table.

Canon PowerShot G3 X vs. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 II 4Sensor: Both the camera features almost same sensor and same resolution but the technologies inside the sensor is different, the Sony RX10 uses Exmor RS BSI CMOS sensor and on the other hand the Canon uses CMOS sensor (of RX100 M3 camera).

with the help a new sensor’s design that utilizes a stacked CMOS image sensor with a DRAM chip and backside-illuminated technology, the RX10 will sure give you neat image (without noise at higher ISO settings).

Lens: The Canon G3X have 25X Optical zoom and RX10 is limited to 8.3X optical zoom only, the major advtange of the RX10 camera is constant aperture range of the camera, the RX10 offers you fixed F2.8 aperture throught the zoom range on the other hand the Canon 25X optical zoom lens have variable aperture starting from 2.8-5.6, the constant aperture will sure give you more DOF in RX10 images when used at longer focal length compared to Canon.

The Sony RX10 features better close-up range compared to the Canon G3X (5cm vs 3cm), a better macro mode allow you to go more closer to the subject with losing the focus of the camera.

 Auto focus system: Both the camera features same contrast based AF system, however the Canon have more dense AF points compared to Sony.

Continuous shooting speed: Despite of having same resolution as of G3X camera the Sony RX10 features blazing fast continuous shooting speed of 14fps on the other hand the Canon G3X camera is limited to 5.5fps only,

Thanks to the introduction of DRAM chip is integrated into the sensor, and combined with the BINOZ X processor, it allows for fast readout speeds directly from the sensor, with the help of the new technology the burst shooting touched a new height of up to 14 fps, and now you can use maximum physical shutter speed of 1/3200 sec and a maximum electronic shutter speed of 1/32000 sec.

 

The Sony RX10 gives a prefect place for thumb-grip and button layout are more perfectly designed compared to Canon, the other major advantage is the presence of XGA OLED Electronic Viewfinder on the rear side of the camera.

The Sony RX10 gives a prefect place for thumb-grip and button layout are more perfectly designed compared to Canon, the other major advantage is the presence of XGA OLED Electronic Viewfinder on the rear side of the camera.

 4K Video: The RX10 can shoot 4K (30/24fps) videos Up to 29 Minutes, the Canon G3X is limited to Full HD (60p) video mode only… while recording the videos you can use the full optical zoom and fulltime AF support of both the camera.

Verdict: From specification comparison review it is very clear that Canon G3X is offering us more optical zoom lens on the other hand the Sony RX10 II features bright optical zoom lens with F2.8 aperture, that will give us better color and contrast with more DOF when used at longer focal length, the camera also features newly developed DRAM memory (buffer) Chip on the rear side of the sensor to increase the data transfer speed exponentially that help to to achieve continuous shooting speed of 15fps and also able capture 4K without an issue.

We highly recommend you to go with Sony RX10 II, It’s and all-rounder camera and recommend for still and video shooters and if you are a still shooter and need more zoom lens and DOF / continuous shooting speed isn’t a issue for than you should go with Canon G3X

Canon G3 X vs. Canon G1 X Mark II

Canon-PowerShot-G3-X-vs.-Canon-PowerShot-G1-X-Mark-II-12Which camera should you buy, newly announced Canon G3X camera or Canon G1X Mark II camera, take a look at the detailed specification comparison review below and share your thoughts with us….

Major Difference

Canon PowerShot G3 X vs. Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Specification Comparison Table.

Canon PowerShot G3 X vs. Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II 4

Sensor:  The canon GX3 X camera features 20 MP 1″ sensor and the Canon G1X Mark II features 12 MP 1.5″ sensor, that clearly means that the photo diodes of the Canon G1X Mark II are big compared to the Canon G3X camera, large photodiodes collects more light and in-return you get better low-light images.

But both the sensors are bit different, the Canon G1X Mark II camera is build by Canon itself and Canon G3X  sensor is developed by Sony, (same sensor as of RX100 M3).

Lens: The Canon G3X features a 25X optical zoom lens on the other hand the Canon G1X Mk II limited to 5X optical zoom lens only, the other noticeable difference is the aperture range of both the camera, the Canon G1X Mark II features bright optical zoom lens F2.0 – F3.9 on the other hand the ISO range  of the G3X is limited to F2.8-F5.9, however we have to keep in mind the G3X has more lens elements inside it compared to the Canon G1X MK II camera.

More ISO Range – Despite of having small sensor and more resolution the Canon G3X offers more ISO range, so we do expect that Canon G3X will perform better under low-light condition. However we will publish high ISO test images of both the camera as soon as they became available.

Both camera features Hybrid image stabilization, the system selects from Normal IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Active Tripod IS modes.

Auto-focus system – Both the compact camera features same type of contrast based AF system with 31 AF points.

Fast Continuous shooting speed in G3X – The Canon G3X not only features more resolution but it also features bit more continuous shooting speed. So if you are a sports shooter and need a compact camera than for sure the Canon G3X is best for you since it offers you more optical zoom, ISO range and burst rate.

Canon-PowerShot-G3-X-vs.-Canon-PowerShot-G1-X-Mark-II-22

Canon G3X can shoot Full HD Video @ 60fps on the other hand the Canon G1X Mark II camera is limited to 30fps only while recording the video, the optical zoom will sure help you to get closer to

Dust- and water-resistant – Canon G3X is the first Canon G Series compact camera to feature weather resistance sealing, the camera G1X Mk II doesn’t have such type of sealing. The weather sealing let you free to use your compact without worrying about outdoor weather condition.

Verdict: I will pick Canon G3X as clear winner, since the camera features more optical zoom, more ISO range and and bit fast continuous shooting speed… we highly recommend you to buy Canon G3X camera.

Press Release

CANON IS DEVELOPING POWERSHOT G3 X PREMIUM COMPACT CAMERA, FEATURING 1.0-inch SENSOR AND 25x OPTICAL ZOOM LENS 

MELVILLE, N.Y., February 5, 2015 — Canon U.S.A., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced that its parent company, Canon Inc., is developing a new addition to the Company’s G-series lineup of premium compact cameras—the PowerShot G3 X—and will display a prototype of the camera at CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2015, to be held from February 12th-15th at the PACIFICO YOKOHAMA Exhibition Hall in Yokohama, Japan.

The new PowerShot G3 X, currently under development by Canon Inc., will incorporate a large 1.0-inch sensor and a 24–600mm (35mm film equivalent) 25x optical zoom lens while maintaining a compact size that makes it easy to carry around. The camera will produce images with beautifully blurred backgrounds, made possible by its large sensor, and provide users with a wide range of focal lengths, from wide-angle to telephoto. The addition of the new model will serve to further bolster Canon’s already impressive G-series PowerShot camera lineup.

Introduced in 2000 as a high-end-model lineup, Canon’s G series of PowerShot cameras has played a leading role in the compact camera market thanks to its high-image quality.

Calling upon the Company’s latest lens, sensor and image processing technology know-how, Canon launched the current flagship-model PowerShot G1 X Mark II camera in March 2014, followed in October of the same year with the launch of the high-image-quality compact-body PowerShot G7 X camera. Both models have proven popular among a wide range of high-end users, including users of EOS-series interchangeable-lens cameras.

By actively and flexibly responding to the market’s diverse needs, particularly through the bolstering of the Company’s high-end-model lineup, Canon will continue to contribute to the expansion of the photographic imaging culture.
