(CW3) Is the Canon Powershot G1 X Mark III Canon’s next Large Sensor Compact Camera? (20MP, 25x zoom, WiFi, NFC, more specs)

The Canon Powershot G1 X

I got some specs (thanks) for a new Powershot camera, the Powershot G3 X (or G1 X Mark III). I can not yet confirm it is the anticipated large sensor Powershot. Given the high ISOs it may well be. There is no “G2 X”, and both the PowerShot G1 X and PowerShot G1 X Mark II had an 1.5″ sensor. In any case, this is one of the new Powershot cameras Canon will announce next week.

The specifications:

  • Powershot G1 X Mark III (or maybe G3 X)
  • 20.2mp 1 inch back illuminated cmos
  • Wi-fi
  • NFC
  • 5 fps
  • f/2.8-f5.6. 25x zoom. 28-600mm zoom (35 equiv.)
  • 3.2 inch touch screen
  • ISO 12800 expand to 25600
  • Full HD. 59.94 fps

About our rumor rating:

  • CW1 – probably fake rumor, not reliable
  • CW2 – rumor from an unknown/new source, but otherwise at least a plausible rumor
  • CW3 – a 50% chance to be real, coming from a known source, or from new source with good insight in Canon’s business
  • CW4 – rumor from a known source that was right in the past
  • CW5 – as good as certain to be true
