New Delhi, Oct 23 Canon is taking the image sensor used in its best prosumer camera, the 80D, and putting it in an all new, more portable shooter called the Powershot G1X Mark III. Featuring a built-in 24-72mm, f2.8-5.6 zoom lens, and combines them into a relatively compact body weighing just 400g/14oz.
The Mark III can shoot continuous bursts at up to 9 fps with AF/AE locked on the first shot or 7 fps with continuous AF. The buffer fills up after around 19 Raw or 24 JPEGs, depending on which mode you’re using. Battery life is disappointing, with a CIPA rating of only 200 shots per charge (which assumes you’re using the flash 50% of the time). The new camera hits the shelves in November and will cost $1,299.
