LCD Screen Size and Features
Canon G1 X III's 3 LCD screen is slightly larger than Canon ELPH 180's 2.7" screen.
Moreover, Canon G1 X III sports a Fully Articulated screen
which you can change the angle and position of the screen almost freely, making it possible to shoot from waist or over the head levels, and especially very useful for shooting selfies and video. On the other hand, Canon ELPH 180 has a fixed type screen which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to G1 X III.
