Photography Blog completed their full review of the new Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III.

From their conclusion:

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III might look familiar on the outside, but rest assured that this is no minor refresh, with a wealth of internal improvements that make it one of Canon’s best compact cameras for both stills photographers and keen vloggers alike.

Chief among them are the new stacked image sensor and latest Digic 8 processor, which combine to make the G7 X III one of the fastest shooting stills cameras and most capable video cameras in the company’s compact line-up. For the first time 4K video with no crop is available – yes, no crop – which is a big milestone for Canon in light of recent 4K releases that have suffered from a heavy crop factor. 

Add in the plethora of other advanced video features that are making their debut, including a 3.5mm mic input, live streaming to YouTube over Wifi, support for vertical movies for IG TV, and the 120fps slow-motion mode, and it’s pretty clear that Canon have rather successfully gone all out with the G7 X III to target the vlogging generation.

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

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.
