Canon U.S.A., Inc., has revealed an addition to its compact digital cameras— the Canon Powershot G3X. This camera is perfect for photographers, who want D-SLR style features and quality in a dust and water resistant body.
The Powershot G3X is able to deliver optimal image quality due to its 1 inch Type 20 MP sensor combined with a DIGIC 6 image processor. The HS ( High- Sensitivity) system helps photographers capture vivid and detailed images including videos shot in low-light situations. The camera’s 25x ( equivalent to 24-600mm) zoom ensures all details in the scene with its f/2.8-5.6 lens. An enhanced image stabilisation system ensures virtually shake-free images in different shooting conditions.
The Powershot G3X also provides Full HD movie capture at 24p, 30p and 60p in MP4 format. Several new features have been included such as an external stereo microphone jack, a headphone jack for audio monitoring while recording and manual control of exposure and audio levels. The camera also uses a live HDMI output, which allows direct connection to external video recorders and for a hassle free playback of recorded movies on an HDTV.
With built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, users can share their images on social networking platforms using Canon Image Gateway.
The Canon Powershot G3X is scheduled to be available from July 2015 at an estimated retail price of $999.99. For more information, visit http://usa. canon.com
