A new, updated specification list for the PowerShot G1 X Mark III emerged from the web.
- 24.2mp APS-C Sensor
- DIGIC 7
- 24-70mm f/2.8-5.6 (35mm equivalent)
- Dynamic IS
- Touch AF
- Dust & water resistant
- OLED Electronic View Finder (EVF)
We already knew the PowerShot G1 X Mark III was going to have an 24MP APS-C sensor. The 24-70mm lens makes perfectly sense. The EVF is a welcome feature. If this specs get confirmed it will be a well rounded small camera with fixed lens and a large sensor. I add to the list above that the G1 X Mark III will also have Dual Pixel AF.
It was about time for Canon to beef up the PowerShot line-up. Previous rumors suggested more upcoming PowerShot G-series cameras might have an APS-C sensor. At the time of writing I would be a bit cautious with that. Likely the top of the line PowerShot G1 X Mark III might be the only new PowerShot with an APS-C sensor.
