Canon released this promo video last week for the PowerShot SX70 HS with its 65x optical zoom lens. In the video you get a sense of just how much reach the SX70 HS delivers, along with how well the Frame Assist Lock delivers viewfinder shake reduction to help keep the extreme telephoto shots in the frame.
The newly-announced Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III is a new step for Canon with the flagship of its G-series line checking all the boxes of a DSLR in a very compact package. The 15-45mm lens offers a 24-72mm equivalent field of view on the APS-C format sensor with a variable aperture starting at a bright f/2.8 on the wide end.
The G1 X Mark III also has Canon’s highly regarded Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which provides solid performance for still image and video capture. It has a reasonable sensitivity range of ISO 100-25,600, which is also comparable to entry-level DSLRs like the recent entries in the Canon Rebel series. Throw in 1080/60p video capture and 7fps still shooting with AF tracking and you have a respectable imaging machine in your hands. [Read more…]
