Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera to be announced soon


A new Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera was registered with bluetooth.org:

  • PowerShot G1 X Mark III
  • Bluetooth SIG
  • Company Name: Canon Inc.
  • Equipment: Digital camera
  • Posted on: August 20, 2017
  • Bluetooth 4.1 installed

The new PowerShot G1 X Mark III camera could have the recently patented lens I reported about yesterday:

  • Zoom ratio f: 4.71
  • Focal length: 5.36 - 25.24
  • Aperture: 1.85 - 5.87


The Mark III version will replace the current Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II model.

    I don’t think Canon would equip G1X-series camera with the lens, designed for sensor size 5.2mm x 3,6mm.

    • Ayoul

      I agree. The G1XII has a 1.5″ sensor.

      If they keep the same name, I don’t think that they will reduce the size of the sensor…

        I think the biggest issue is that the compact camera market has collapsed except for cameras in this class. However, the volume isn’t going to be even close to high enough for Canon to justify developing a new sensor. If Canon took a real m4/3 sensor with a lens to match, I’d be VERY interested.

    • I just was the original Japanese post – they said for PowerShot G 17, S100 successor or G 9 X Mark II

      Also there’s no way the aperture will go back to slow ass 5.9. Not sure what to expect from Canon, it could be a really lame update, maybe tweaks AF, hopefully improve sensor DR but again will skimp on video and not offer 4K.

    Fingers crossed this is true! I have been looking for something to replace my G1X mk2 as a walk-around camera.

    Finally some news on this camera…

    Overall camera size needs to be reduced.

    Your source was right, the announcement came soon.
    I was right, the lens is different to that patentee =)
