Here we are comparing two Bridge cameras from Fujifilm and Canon. Fujifilm S1 was introduced to market in January 2014 and Canon G3 X was launched in June 2015. There is 17 months difference between S1 and G3 X so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger G3 X, especially in sensor tech.
Fujifilm S1 has a 16.0MP 1/2.3-inch sensor whereas Canon G3 X has a 20.0MP 1-inch sensor. This will be an interesting match up as even though these two cameras doesn't have the exact same body type, they are both ranked amongst Top 10 cameras in their classes. Fujifilm S1 is ranked #4
out of 244 Small Sensor Superzoom cameras with an overall score of 62 whereas Canon G3 X is ranked #7
out of 10 Large Sensor Superzoom cameras with an overall score of 70.
