Canon PowerShot G7 X III Review (one of the best enthusiast compacts on the market, DPReview)
The folks at DPReview posted a Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III review. The camera was announced back in July 2019.
From the conclusion:
The Canon G7 X Mark III takes the features that made its predecessor a solid camera: its fast 24-100mm equiv. lens, very good image quality and tilt-up screen – and tried to make the camera into even more appealing to the vlogging crowd. Canon added support for 4K video with no crop, live streaming over YouTube (a first for any camera), an external mic socket and support for vertical video capture. Video quality is good, though not best-in-class, as long as you stay away from the ‘high’ image stabilization setting.[…] Taken as a whole, the PowerShot G7 X Mark III is a very good camera. As a stills camera, it’s one of the best enthusiast compacts on the market, and a good value considering its feature set. Its video specs are impressive, though its autofocus and video recording limit are not. Read the review at DPReview

Offering multimedia fluency within a compact design, the silver Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III is a sleek camera distinguished by its advanced sensor design and flexible imaging capabilities. Its 20.1MP 1″ CMOS sensor uses a stacked design, which pairs with the DIGIC 8 image processor to realize especially fast focusing performance, full-resolution shooting at up to 20 fps, and UHD 4K30p video recording. Optically, the G7 X Mark III houses a 4.2x zoom lens, which covers a 24-100mm equivalent focal length range for wide-angle to short-telephoto fields of view. An f/1.8-2.8 maximum aperture range suits working in difficult lighting conditions as does an Optical Image Stabilizer, which compensates for the effects of camera shake. The camera’s slim design also incorporates a 3.0″ 180° tilting touchscreen LCD and has both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for wirelessly connecting to a mobile device.
