Canon G1 X III is powered by a proprietary battery which provides a shooting life of 200 according to CIPA standards.
Considering that the average battery life of Large Sensor Compact type cameras is 302 shots, Canon G1 X III has a short battery life for its class so we strongly recommend G1 X III owners to buy some extra batteries.
