Major Canon Announcement Set For Next Week? (PowerShot G7 X Mark III, G5 X Mark II, Cinema camera)

Ibis Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless Canon PowerShot G7 X Canon Eos 90d Coronavirus

We have been told that Canon is set to hold a major product announcement next week. Is the PowerShot G7 X Mark III eventually going to be announced?

We expect Canon to announce the PowerShot G7 X Mark III (all rumors), the PowerShot G5 X Mark II, possibly the Canon RF 24-240mm f4-6.3 IS lens for the EOS R system, and maybe a new Cinema camera. The new Cinema camera will likely be the EOS C300 Mark III. In favour of a possible Canon Cinema camera announcement is the fact that both the Canon EOS C200 and the EOS C300 Mark II just got a $1,000 price drop.

A new Canon EOS RP kit with the RF 24-240mm might also be announced. Do not expect the Canon EOS 90D, it will be announced later on, most likely in Fall 2019. We also think it’s unlikely a new EOS M model will be announced.

We have been told that Canon will announce the new gear on July 9 or 10, and the PowerShot G7 X Mark III seems to be the most likely gear to be announced.

All Canon rumors are listed here. Stay tuned.

Are These Images Of The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III? (Most Likely They Are)

  • Digital camera
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed

Possible Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III specifications surface

Powershot G7 X Mark Ii

A list off supposed specifications for the upcoming Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III surfaced over the web.

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III may have the following specifications:

  • 24.1mp 1″ CMOS sensor
  • 10fps
  • DIGIC 8
  • 24-100mm f/1.8-f/2.8 Lens (4.2x Optical Zoom)
  • 3″ Articulating Touchscreen
  • 4K Video at 30fps
  • 1080p Video at 60fps
  • Built in Wi-Fi, NFC & GPS
  • Announcement: 2018
  • No mention about DPAF for 4K video.

Looks a bit like wish-list to me. Also it’s somewhat hard to think that Canon will feature 4K on a PowerShot, given how reluctant they were to put it on consumer models. All in all it looks a bit to feature rich for a PowerShot camera.

An announcement towards Q4 2018 may be realistic. There is Photokina in September and Canon won’t miss this stage if they have something important or just new to display.

Stay tuned.

Are the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III images a fake? Tell us what you think (poll) – UPDATE: it’s a fake!

Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III

UPDATE: it’s now safe to assume the images of the Powershot G7X Mark III are fake. A well made one. The images you see on the display have been taken from Unsplash. One was taken with a Canon Rebel T6,  the other with a DMC-GX85.

Not the first time a well elaborate prank fools the rumor community.

Original post:

Yesterday three pictures of what appears to be the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III leaked on the web.

Since then some voices raised doubts about the legitimacy of the images. It’s a common issue when images of upcoming cameras leak ahead of the official announcement.

We can yet not confirm if these images are real, or some elaborate CGI work. From the images you can learn some basic specs. The (supposedly) Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III has an 1″ image sensor, USB-C connectivity, a microphone jack (!), HDMI output, and a hot shoe. Not bad for such a small camera.

And then this 4K thing, which seems almost to be too good to be true. However, among the murmurings raising on the web, there is pretty good analysis by Canon News about what may indeed raise your eyebrows.

Powershot is not mentioned anywhere on the camera. Every PowerShot shot has PowerShot written on it somewhere

There’s no microphone holes

The top dial doesn’t have EC on it, which means that canon is actually removing the EC dial from the G7 X Mark III.

There’s no flash switch to pop out the flash (even though looking from the top it appears like it has a flash)

The buttons don’t look “canon-like”.  The icons don’t match canon “standard icons”.

There’s no record button.

There’s no click / smooth button for the dial around the lens.

The video images show 120 minutes and 60 minutes which would classify this as a video camera and not a stills camera for European import taxation. This won’t happen.

There’s no sensor on the front of the camera for the infrared remote trigger. Every Canon has that.

no PASM dial

No quick menu / SET button

There are some good points in the list above. I noticed the not Canon-like buttons, and that there is no “PowerShot” mentioned. This is either a bold move by Canon, or a well made fake. See for yourself (images via Photo Rumors):

It wouldn’t be the first time that rumor sites get fooled by some elaborate prank. What do you think? We are not sure yet.
