Update on the rumored Canon PowerShot G17 - Go Here>>

Canon Is Developing the PowerShot G3 X Premium Compact Camera, Featuring 1.0-Inch Sensor And 25x Optical Zoom Lens

MELVILLE, N.Y., February 5, 2015 - Canon U.S.A., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced that its parent company, Canon Inc., is developing a new addition to the Company's G-series lineup of premium compact cameras-the PowerShot G3 X-and will display a prototype of the camera at CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2015, to be held from February 12th-15th at the PACIFICO YOKOHAMA Exhibition Hall in Yokohama, Japan.

The new PowerShot G3 X, currently under development by Canon Inc., will incorporate a large 1.0-inch sensor and a 24-600mm (35mm film equivalent) 25x optical zoom lens while maintaining a compact size that makes it easy to carry around. The camera will produce images with beautifully blurred backgrounds, made possible by its large sensor, and provide users with a wide range of focal lengths, from wide-angle to telephoto. The addition of the new model will serve to further bolster Canon's already impressive G-series PowerShot camera lineup.

Introduced in 2000 as a high-end-model lineup, Canon's G series of PowerShot cameras has played a leading role in the compact camera market thanks to its high-image quality.

Calling upon the Company's latest lens, sensor and image processing technology know-how, Canon launched the current flagship-model PowerShot G1 X Mark II camera in March 2014, followed in October of the same year with the launch of the high-image-quality compact-body PowerShot G7 X camera. Both models have proven popular among a wide range of high-end users, including users of EOS-series interchangeable-lens cameras.

By actively and flexibly responding to the market's diverse needs, particularly through the bolstering of the Company's high-end-model lineup, Canon will continue to contribute to the expansion of the photographic imaging culture.

Canon EF-M 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens
Designed for use with the EOS M Digital Camera, the new EF-M 18–55mm f/3.5–5.6 IS STM lens offers a compact and lightweight design for easy portability. Its image stabilization system provides up to four equivalent stops of shake correction to deliver stunning video and photos without blur. A seven-blade circular aperture helps create beautiful, soft backgrounds for expressive video and portraits!

The EF-M 18–55mm f/3.5–5.6 IS STM has three aspheric lens elements that help reduce aberration throughout the zoom range to provide high resolution and high contrast for superb image quality. Optimized lens placement and coatings ensure minimized ghosting and flare.
