Item details

The Canon PowerShot G3 X is a large sensor digital bridge camera announced by Canon on June 18, 2015. It marks Canon's entry into this product category, alongside competitors such as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000, Sony Cyber-shot RX10 and RX10 II.

It has the longest focal length zoom range of any Powershot G-Series, from 24-600mm (35mm equivalent) with a maximum aperture of f/2.8 at widest, decreasing to f/5.6 at 600mm. In terms of overall specification it is the most capable of the current-production G-series cameras but this comes at the expense of overall size and weight - it is also the largest and heaviest of the series.

It shares the same 1" sensor seen in the Canon G7X as well as both the Sony RX100-III and RX10 cameras.

Pros
  • Long zoom for sensor size.
Cons
  • None.
We were not able to find a better combination of zoom and sensor size when my wife's G3x died circa April 2019, so we ordered another. This time it was $800 USD instead of the original $1000.

I am looking at the G3X but would prefer something newer than a cam that was released in 2015. Has Canon come up with a newer replacement?
