Canon PowerShot G3 X Black 20.2 Megapixel Digital Camera - 0106C001

Voyage to Awe-Inspiring Images
The PowerShot G3 X camera can be ideal for capturing and sharing all your adventures, indoors and out. With a compact, rugged design that's easy to carry, this premium camera gives you inspirational image quality through its 1.0-inch, 20.2 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor, plus the power to zoom to an incredible 25x. You'll be able to capture what you see wherever life takes you: broad, majestic landscapes, virtually blur-free low-light images, and beautifully detailed wildlife. You can also capture action as it happens in beautiful 1080p Full HD video, and share your images/videos with easy Wi-Fi® connectivity, which now includes built-in NFC** for touch communication with a compatible Android™ device***. Whether you're traveling around the world or enjoying your favorite outdoor activities close to home, you'll want to pack the PowerShot G3 X camera.


  • 1.0-inch, 20.2 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS Sensor
    The PowerShot G3 X camera's 1.0-inch sensor achieves a beautiful balance between high sensitivity and high image quality. The sensor is able to collect more light in a shorter time period without the overflow that causes blown-out highlights. This means better detail and sophisticated tonal quality, with rich gradations even at high ISO speeds all the way to 12800. A high signal-to-noise ratio delivers minimal noise and distortion with breathtaking dynamic range, particularly notable in bright areas. And photography enthusiasts will appreciate the changes in image processing for the PowerShot G3 X, which include target exposure value and contrast characteristics of highlights. Thanks to this change, dynamic range in bright areas is expanded with gradation attributes that are similar to EOS. Also, by changing the exposure index standard, it is possible to shoot at almost the same brightness with the same aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings as EOS. The PowerShot G3 X natively captures images in the 3:2 aspect ratio, which is the same as Canon EOS SLR cameras. The camera's image creation technology was designed with post processing in mind, and features an Aspect Ratio function, enabling RAW image capture in 16:9, 3:2, 4:3 and 1:1 aspect ratios while maintaining the same angle of view.
  • Canon DIGIC 6 Image Processor
    The PowerShot G3 X camera is powered by the latest iteration of Canon's proprietary processor, the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, which takes still and video image quality to a beautiful new level. Improved light sensitivity allows for higher resolution with less noise when shooting in dark conditions, and Dynamic IS now detects and compensates for tilt and parallel movement (shift blur) to create video that's exceptionally free of distortion. The DIGIC 6 Image Processor also enhances the performance capabilities of the PowerShot G3 X, powering full resolution high-speed continuous still shooting (even in P, Av, Tv and M modes) and the advanced star shooting modes. The processor allows for MP4 video recording for better compatibility with mobile devices and tablets. Highly compressed MP4 video not only preserves space on your memory card but also improves playback on mobile devices. The new processor also supports an MF Peaking function, giving you a pro-level focusing tool.
  • Canon HS SYSTEM
    The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you take bright, clear photos as they happen, whether the light is cooperating or not. Beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and truly impressive detail in both highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies in the PowerShot G3 X camera: the large format 1.0-inch High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor, which captures more light; and the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, which actively reduces noise at high ISO speeds up to 12800 and processes images at high speed, even at full resolution. Experience the freedom of using higher shutter speeds in far more situations, allowing you to capture images with exceptional clarity and detail.
  • 25x, f/2.8–5.6 Optical Zoom Lens (24–600mm)
    The PowerShot G3 X incorporates a powerful 25x Optical Zoom (24–600mm) lens for seamless telephoto shooting and unmatched versatility. The culmination of decades of EF lens know-how, the bright, all-new f/2.8–5.6 lens uses cutting-edge construction to prevent aberration and peripheral illumination loss over the entire telephoto range, delivering reliably high image quality with every shot. The lens's 9-blade aperture diaphragm creates beautiful circular background blur. Micro USM II drives the high-speed, silent zoom, with smooth, high-precision focusing for professional-quality video shooting.
