Image quality

Canon G1X Mark III with APS-C sensor can take quality images that also employs 24 Million of effective pixels. Means in terms of image quality, this camera has no comparison since Sony comes with comparatively smaller sensor so we can’t expect much sharper images from it. However, the including of DRAM and LSI chip the camera can take sharp shots of the subjects. Moreover, due to large number of pixels G1X could also create large print of the subjects.


AF system

The place where G1X Mark II really nailed the competition is its AF system. Yes! it uses intelligent Dual Pixel AF system that can give Sky level AF performance, which makes it possible to achieve high speed AF during Live View shooting. But on the other hand, RX100 V with 315 dedicated AF points, ensuring that the photographers will be able to capture the desired subjects with enough speed and accuracy — and moreover, the 315 AF points of RX100 V can also cover 65% of the sensor. Meanwhile, the 24 MP camera offers 49 AF points only so that it can’t cover much wider area as Sony RX100V.


Shutter speed

One of the best advantages of faster shutter speed is it leads the photographers to take crisp and blur-free stills and videos with sharply focused subjects and defocused backgrounds. And you can see that Sony RX100 V offers blazing fast 1/32000 seconds of shutter speed also ensuring that the users will not have to face the distortion issue in the images. But, Canon G1X 3 has very little shutter speed of 1/2000 only.


Continuous shooting speed

The Sony RX10 V offers higher frame rates of 24 fps, ensuring that camera can capture much more of the action each second, reducing the opportunity for action to blur. This results in producing sharper images in any kind of shooting (basically used in capturing the sports action of the intended players or subjects). Only 9fps of continuous frame rates Canon G1X Mark III offering us (very little for shooting faster actions of the target subjects).


Video

The video enthusiast will surely pick the Sony RX100 V since the camera offers the advantages of 4k movie shooting that utilizes full pixel readout without pixel binning to ensure that all the finer details of 4K video. But, with G1X Mark III you can take Full-HD video only.

Battery Life

One can take around 220 shots at a time using RX100 V, whereas Canon G1X Mark III lets you take maximum 240 shots at a time.


Verdict

Sony RX100 V is an astounding compact camera that could greatly be used for sports purposes, whereas Canon G1X Mark III can be used while travelling means one can take it for any kind of shooting purposes. Price is a little factor.
