Canon Powershot G3X Review: Heavy duty, long-range Sniper

Currently, if you own a DSLR and want a super-telephoto zoom lens, your cheapest options will be the Sigma 150-600mm and Tamron 150-600mm lenses. If mounted on APS-C cameras, the 1.6x crop factor yields you a 240-960mm full-frame equivalent focal range. However, those lenses alone cost over a thousand dollars each, and you don’t even get the luxury of wide shots with the lowest focal length on offer being 150mm.

Have no fear, the Canon Powershot G3X is here. It is a bridge compact camera, and it has a massive focal range of 24-600mm (that is after factoring the crop factor of approximately 2.7x). The best part is, you can get the whole camera for just S$1199 — money that would go into the above mentioned lenses alone.

Now, I don’t mean to say that anyone purchasing those lenses is foolish — in  fact, the above lenses give you the versatility of DSLRs, and they undoubtedly have better optical quality. However if you’re not someone who demands DSLR versatility in every situation, or could do with a lower optical quality, then the G3X is for you.

LG G3 Review: Pop-eye

Overview

It is no secret that while LG is a massive family-owned conglomerate, it is widely viewed as the lesser of the two South Korean giants compared to Samsung. LG only really made their mark last year in October with the G2, and now they have launched the G3 in quick succession. The G3 is a stellar device, sporting a 1440p display spread over a mammoth 5.5 inches, but as it turns out, the enhanced display ends up being its Achilles’ heel instead.

LG launches the G3 Beat, a smaller and less powerful G3

Unfortunately for the consumers at large, it seems that all OEMs except for Sony seem to equate a smaller chassis with inferior specs. The Samsung Galaxy S3/4/5 mini, HTC One mini, One mini 2 and LG G2 mini all have much worse specs than their larger cousins, and it seems their trend is set to continue with the G3 Beat.
