Seoul Searching

[SPONSORED CONTENT] The Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III is a pocket-sized pro.

Published on Jan 26, 2018


When a trip spans everything from adventure to art, landscapes to lifestyle, we need a camera that is rugged yet sleek, and packs a lot of power into portable package. Hats off to the PowerShot G1 X Mark III. This compact Canon camera boasts an APS-C sensor, its 9 frames per second burst shooting can freeze moments, and we can easily toss all our great photos up on social media using its wi-fi and Bluetooth connectivity.

CAFE MANI, JEJU-DO This is a favorite pit stop for many cyclists along the island's northwest.

Photographer Lee Seo Jin Ann toted one around South Korea, and came back raving about its strength and versatility—especially day-to-night. "With just half-down exposure, I could prevent the sky from looking blown out by even the harshest midday sun," she said. “Photos taken during the evening had minimal noise and minimal reduced sharpness.” With its flip LCD screen preventing glare from the sun, and a large enough focal range for stellar landscapes, the PowerShot G1 X Mark III proved an invaluable adventure travel companion.

"The weight and feel of the camera are great. The portable size allows it to be brought anywhere, stored in pockets or carried around the wrist," she said. "The 9fps shooting allows you to capture movement. The girls in the hanbok, for example, were walking." And with this camera, any day is a beautiful one for a stroll.
