In this review, we will be comparing FZ1000 and G3 X, two Large Sensor Superzoom cameras from Panasonic and Canon. Panasonic FZ1000 was introduced to market in June 2014 and Canon G3 X was launched in June 2015. There is 12 months difference between FZ1000 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.
Both Panasonic FZ1000 and Canon G3 X cameras have 20.0MP 1" sensors. 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, Panasonic FZ1000 is ranked #6
with an overall score of 72 and Canon G3 X is ranked #7
with an overall score of 72.
