Guess what! I have a new toy I could tinker with <3
Finally have a new baby that’s pretty much a necessity for my line of work! I’m taking my photos up to the next level and will now be saying hello to better photos! :p
What’s nice about cameras nowadays is there are finally new cameras that are compact like point and shoot cameras yet they take such nice photos like of a DLSR camera! I couldn’t imagine myself bringing a bulky DLSR camera all around everyday or to events! This Canon G3 X camera is categorized as a semi-pro camera – it’s between a point and shoot and a DLSR. (I guess sort of like mirrorless cameras?) The Canon G3X’s screen is also foldable and adjustable making it also possible to take selfies! :p Now, at least I have the perfect camera that’s convenient to bring around and take pictures with! 🙂
In terms of it’s specs, it’s a 20.20 megapixel camera with a 24-600mm 25x optical zoom lens as well as improved zoom framing assist, leading to different range of imaging possibilities! And tbh, which is definitely more than enough! Like I stated in my previous post, during the 1989 DC Tour, I used my dad’s camera, a Canon S120 that was 12 megapixels but it took exquisite photos already! So can you imagine having better image quality with the G3 X since it’s 20.20 megapixels
Another feature that I love is that this particular model has a so-called star mode, meaning when you take photos of the sky at night, the stars can be evidently seen unlike some other cameras probably let’s say your smartphone’s camera. The photo will actually turn out how you saw the sky and the stars, therefore really capturing the moment. Now I’m so excited to go out of town and to go stargazing <3 Hihi.
The best feature for me though is: its connectivity features!!! Cannot stress this enough! There’s no need for those cables for you to be able to transfer photos to your laptop or phones because it has wifi and near field communications capabilities, making it hassle free to connect and transfer files! Very useful for blogging and Instagram! 🙂 All you have to do is download the Canon Camera Connect app on your smartphone and then viola! Photos and videos are transferred in an instant! 🙂 Through the Camera Connect app, there’s also a feature called “Remote Shooting” – which is another very helpful feature! Hence the name remote shooting, it allows you to take photos from a distance! The camera’s view is projected to the smartphone device (through the app ofc) making it easier to take photos from another point! Through remote shooting you can also manipulate the camera settings such as shutter speed, focus, zoom, iso, aperture and aspect ratio!
Name it, Canon G3 X has it! Now tell me how can I not fall in love with this camera! <3
