Fake: Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III and It Shoots 4K
« on: January 19, 2018, 01:16:34 PM »
*Update 2* These are confirmed to be fakes.


*Update* We are working to verify the authenticity of the photos in this leak. The change in design philosophy may be a bit too extreme for Canon. We’ll let you know as soon as we know.


The first images of the upcoming Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III have surfaced over at Photo Rumors.

It looks like a fresh new design for what I think is Canon’s best G series PowerShot.

A few specifications can be figured out by the images.

  • 4K video 50P
  • 24-100mm f/1.8-2.8 IS 4.2x Lens (35mm equivalent)
  • 1″ image sensor
  • USB-C
  • Microphone Jack
  • HDMI
  • Hot shoe
  • Maybe an OLED screen

More specifications should leak soon.

I'm wondering if they will ever use a upgraded Sony Sensor, the old one was pretty out of date.

Looks like it has a mic input as well, the G1X Mark III got out of date pretty quickly it seems...although this might be fairly close in price.

Ouch! One and a half month ago I got G7X mkII. It is a good thing that I do not care about 4K and that it uses 1 inch sensor but still :-(

It looks also to be USB-C - will it get rid of the battery charger?

Could this mean that Digic 8 is here (seems a bit early considering the first Digic 7 ILC only debuted 18 months ago)? Or is it simply that they have bought a Sony 1" stacked sensor that can offload the data fast enough?

Not a bad start  :)
I hope 4K-50/60p is on more high-end consumer camera VERY SOON, not just on Canon C200 ($7500) or C300mk2 ($10000)

By the way, does this camera has any canon log ?
If so, that must be one of the options for easy filmmaking. But, we will see.

I'd be shocked if it has cLOG.  Canon doesn't want anything that will take away from their video business.  It's why the 5DmkIV didn't ship with it.  This looks a a blogger camera.  It will be nice if it's priced competitively and I'd be interested in it because I have two newborn twins and I want something to throw in the diaper bag.  Looks to be in the same ballpark as Sony's rx100mk.  It does 24 fps stills, which is insane.  I doubt canon will do that, so hopefully they'll price it less, maybe $700-800, but knowing Canon it will be north of $1000.

Really like my G7X II. 

4K is not enough of a reason for me to upgrade.  If the sensor, lens, and AF are the same, and it looks like they are, I will likely be staying with the II.

But, for those that want a pocketable camera, the II is very capable.  Add in the microphone jacket and the hot shoe, those are solid improvements.

The new design does look nice.  The screen looks larger, which is great.  The current screen is a bit small for all my thumbs.

YES. YES. YES. Finally no ugly duckling with butt-ugly pseudo prism bump on top! No retro-cr*ap like Fuji. Not bloated. Clean slate! I like.  8)

Would like same type of case only slightly bigger, with FF sensor inside, pop-up EVF [like Sony RX1 R II] and new, slim-fit Canon EX-mount up front. With full Canon EOS user interface, not nerfed Powershot firmware cr*p.

4k .. dont care. Would prefer no video out whatsoever. Stills only for me.   

Make it so, Canon ... if you want my money!

4K video 50P

This is a typo, right?!

what are you smoking over there in the AvTvM Universe? the G7X's never had a bump on top and where always clean / not bloated looking.

At first glance this looks like a really nice camera, and I'm very interested as I'm looking to replace my S110, but I'm just a bit suspicious about the design. Is this a new design departure for Canon? The style and decals are very different from all previous Canons - the model number on the front of Powewrshots is always in italics, and the "bin" symbol on the back is different. The controls also seem ultrta-minimalist - surely on a camera that boasts 4K video, there would be a dedicated "record" button? I also just burnt my dinner typing this, so that's really got me upset!
