Canon’s compact G3 X camera features 25x Optical Zoom Lens


But, the feature everyone is talking about is the camera’s 24-600mm equivalent 25x optical zoom lens. With F-stops as low as 2.8-5.6 (depending on zoom), and improved 5-axis Intelligent Image Stabilization, the compact lens is a step up in its class.

To highlight a few practical features, the G3 X has an ISO range of 125-12,800, continuous shooting at 5.9 frames-per-second, and the option to shoot in RAW, JPEG or RAW+JPEG recording formats.

We haven’t tested the G3 yet, but we’re anxious to see if the camera is worth the $999 sticker price that’s quite a bit higher than most compact cameras with similar specs.
