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.
* Image processing may cause a decrease in the number of pixels.
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.

Zoom Framing Assist
Its 25x Optical Zoom lens gives the PowerShot G3 X the ability to capture subjects at great distances, but because it can be challenging to track a moving subject at maximum telephoto, the camera includes sophisticated technology to help you get the most from the camera's powerful zoom while simply enjoying shooting. When you press and hold the Zoom Framing Assist button, the camera will zoom out to include a wider angle of view, enabling you to more easily locate your moving subject. Once you find it, releasing the button will cause the lens to return to its original zoom position, intelligently keeping the subject in focus until you're ready to shoot and capture the perfect close-up moment. You can even make zoom adjustments while the button is pressed, with an animated assist frame that makes viewing easy. When the button is released, the lens will return to the adjusted zoom position. Zoom Framing Assist also lets you select an image area (Face/Upper Body/Whole Body/Manual), then keeps that area of your subject the same size in your frame no matter how the subject moves. For instance, you can tap the Zoom Framing Assist button to detect your subject's face. As your subject retreats and advances the camera automatically zooms in and out so their face remains the same size. It's especially useful for capturing the expressions of fast-moving children, and for letting a friend take a picture after you've composed the shot.
The PowerShot G3X camera supports NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, eliminating the need to manually find and open the Canon Camera Connect app on your mobile device. Simply touch the NFC icon on your camera to your compatible AndroidÃ¢ÂÂ¢ device, and the Camera Connect app will launch automatically for remote shooting and quick, easy sharing of your images. Built-in NFC technology also makes it simpler to install the app. If the app hasn't been installed yet, once you touch the devices together for the first time, the download screen will display automatically. The PowerShot G3X is equipped with built-in Wi-FiÃÂ® technology for convenient sharing and transferring of your still images and video. Easily post your images to social networking and media sites Ã¢ÂÂ FacebookÃÂ®, TwitterÃÂ®, YouTubeÃ¢ÂÂ¢, FlickrÃÂ®, and Google DriveÃ¢ÂÂ¢ directly from your PowerShot camera. The camera can also connect directly to both iOSÃÂ® and AndroidÃ¢ÂÂ¢ devices, and upload images via the free Canon Camera Connect app without a computer. One-touch connection to your mobile device or computer is also made possible on the PowerShot G3X with the camera's dedicated Mobile Device Connect Button. You can choose to transfer images to your smartphone or tablet for immediate sharing with the Camera Connect app, or to your computer on the same network with Image Sync to make saving and organizing your images easier.
