(CW4) The Canon Powershot G3 X is Canon’s Next Large Sensor Compact Camera (20MP, 25x zoom, WiFi, NFC)

The Canon Powershot G1 X

I posted the specs yesterday but since I got confirmation from a good source I can upgrade the rumor to CW4. Yesterday I wasn’t sure if the new Powershot will be named G1 X Mark III or G3 X. I can now confirm that the name is Powershot G3 X. Announcement February 6th.

The specifications:

  • Powershot 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
