Canon Powershot G3 X reviews and sample pics (Techradar, Luminous Landscape, DPReview, Amateur Photographer)

Canon Powershot G3 X Reviews And Sample Pics (Techradar, Luminous Landscape, DPReview, Amateur Photographer)

Canon’s new large, 1″ sensor and 25x zoom (24-600mm equivalent) compact camera, the Canon PowerShot G3 X ($999), aimed at enthusiast photographers, gets more reviews.

Shooting with the Canon PowerShot G3 X (and real world sample pics) at DPReview

Canon Powershot G3 X review at TechRadar (scores 4/5):

The G3 X delivers SLR-like zoom capabilities in a compact package thanks to its excellent lens and image stabilisation, only falling down when faced with fast-moving subjects. It’s not a beautiful camera, but it’s well built and easy to handle.

Canon Powershot G3 X sample pictures and full review at Amateur Photographer:

[…] the real problem for the G3 X is the competition, in the shape of the incredibly accomplished Panasonic FZ1000 and Sony RX10. Both offer built-in viewfinders and superior ergonomics, meaning that the G3 X’s longer lens becomes its main selling point in comparison. It falls short in supporting the typical photographic opportunities afforded by that extra zoom, with poor continuous shooting behaviour and – again – no viewfinder. Granted, it’s smaller than either of those cameras, but not to a degree that really matters in practical terms.

Canon Powershot G3 X review at Luminous Landscape:

In the final analysis, I believe that Canon are “hiding their light under a bushel“, as the old British saying has it. For someone looking for pro-level image quality in a moderately sized camera with a reach out to 600mm equivalence, nothing can touch the G3X. If long reach isn’t needed then the Sony RX10II is likely a better choice, and if lower price is required then the FZ1000 will be found to be significantly less expensive.

Canon publishes investor relation for Q2 2015, profits down 16%

Canon Publishes Investor Relation For Q2 2015, Profits Down 16%

Canon published their investor relation for Q2 2015. You can access two documents (both PDFs):

Go for the presentation material for an easier approach. Canon’s profits are down by 16%. The company blames the shrinking DSLR market, but it is safe to assume that this isn’t the only factor that may have lead to the profit loss. With most of the other players pushing innovation and doing strong in new markets like mirrorless cameras, Canon may want to have a closer look on what causes a 16% loss.
