In this review, we will be comparing G3 X and DL24-500, two Large Sensor Superzoom cameras from Canon and Nikon. Canon G3 X was introduced to market in June 2015 and Nikon DL24-500 was launched in February 2016. There is 16 months difference between G3 X and DL24-500 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger DL24-500, especially in sensor tech.
Both cameras have 1" sensors but Canon G3 X has a 20.0 MP and Nikon DL24-500 has a 21.0 MP resolution. We can expect this to be a close match up because both models are ranked amongst the best in Large Sensor Superzoom cameras. Out of 9 cameras in this class, Canon G3 X is ranked #7
with an overall score of 72 and Nikon DL24-500 is ranked #0
with an overall score of 77.
