There have only been a handful of point-and-shoot cameras that feature an APS-C sensor and now Canon is finally getting into the mix with its G1 X Mark III. The camera is the first of its kind from Canon and features a 24.3MP APS-C sensor that puts DSLR image quality into a compact form factor. 

If the fixed lens on Fuji's X100 was a dealbreaker, the G1 X Mark III offers a bit more versatility with a 24-72mm wide-angle zoom lens. The lens boasts 3x optical zoom, a f/2.8-5.6 aperture, and an ISO range of 100-25,600. 

The pro features don't end there, you've also got a 2.36 million dot OLED EVF, a 3.0" vari-angle touchscreen LCD, and up to 7 fps of continuous shooting or 9 fps with AF fixed. Image transfers can be done wirelessly via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and it can connect to your devices instantly via NFC. 

The G1 X Mark III is available this November.
