DPReview posted their full review of the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III (price & specs), the company’s first PowerShot camera with an APS-C sensor and Dual Pixel AF.

From their conclusion:

[…] Canon has really gone all-in on the G1 X III. The result is an impressively well-built and compact camera with a lot going for it. The controls are well thought-out, it’s capable of fantastic image quality and the autofocus and overall performance are excellent. […] The G1 X III is capable of outstanding image quality. Its latest-generation Canon APS-C 24MP sensor combines with Dual Pixel autofocus to produce detailed, accurately focused images with signature Canon color and great noise performance. Even better, default sharpening and noise reduction have been improved relative to previous Canon models with this sensor and processor, and so the G1 X III produces more impressive images right out of the box than some of its interchangeable lens cousins. Read the review…

Photography Blog posted their full review of the brand new Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III (specifications, and price in your country), Canon’s first PowerShot with an APS-C sensor and Dual Pixel AF.

From their conclusion:

Canon must have read our review of the G1 X Mark II, because all of the things that we felt were missing – the exposure compensation dial, vari-angle LCD screen and optical viewfinder – have all made a welcome return in the Mark III. We also like the fact that the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III is weather-proof and can be powered via a USB compatible battery pack, instantly making it more appealing for frequent travellers, while the combination of front and rear control dials and the single lens control ring make it a snip to quickly set the main camera parameters. We’ve always been fans of Canon’s user interface on its DSLRs, and also now on the PowerShot G1 X Mark III.

In summary, the new Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III can be summed up in one word – premium. It’s a premium compact camera that offers premium image quality and handling, albeit with a premium price tag to match. Read the review…

I agree, asking $1,299 is a bit too much for what otherwise is a very cool and powerful compact camera. Let’s hope the price gets down in the next months (after the holidays?).

Canon eventually beefed up the company’s PowerShot flagship, featuring a lot of Canon’s APS-C tech into a small body with a fixed lens. Unfortunately, Canon thought this premium camera deserves a premium price, $1,299 is too much in my opinion.
