I was seriously considering the G7M2 last weekend after Canon really blew it with the G1M3, but decided to wait as the G7 has been out for a while. 

I'm glad I didn't hit the "buy" button.  This looks promising.  I'm looking forward to see this camera.  I was hoping to having something for a trip in a month, but didn't want to bring my 5DM3. 

Crossing my fingers they don't put a lousy lens on it like they did on the G1M3.

Very exciting. But since this is not "Canon realistic" this raises doubts as well. From the screen it looks like it does 4k60p. The icons on the buttons looks different from usual Canon style but looks pretty though at the same time raises doubts about if that was indeed someones photoshop skills. One more reason to doubt that is the timeline. It says 120 min 60 seconds? Did I read that correct? If so, is that showing the largest number possible? Does that shoot more than 29:59 continuously? Not normal for Canon right? What is Breccia?

4K video 50P

This is a typo, right?!

That must be the PAL system? used widely in the UK and parts of asia instead of 30fps and 60fps like in the US they use 25 and 50 fps

I would guess you cannot get one of this in your hands in a month if this is going to be a cp+ announcement. Can you?

This looks like a very good rendering to me, especially the grip texture looks unnatural.

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!
Pretty much everything is a departure.  But this would be one elaborate ruse if it is one.  Three control rings/dials (front, top, and back), hot shoe, pop-up flash (where's the manual release?), etc.

My guess, this is the next evolution with most things controls on the touch screen.  Minimalist.  But, the buttons on the G7XII are a bit too close together for my liking (I am often accidentally switch to MF, for example), so this could be a very nice evolution, depending on how Canon does it, but they usually do the ergonomics very well.

I've found the pug's picture online.

Maybe a hint that the whole leak is a fake? Weird new design, completely different User Interface, 4K, USB-C, another use of Sony's sensors... It stinks to me.

there's a CGI quality to these images that makes me stop and wonder if this entire thing isn't mocked up (as someone showed the LCD screen image is certainly mocked up).

the top dial doesn't have EC on it, which means that canon is actually removing the EC dial from the G7X Mark III - which would be a surprise.
also they really have gone with the red accent detail, which is entirely missing from this camera.

The UI isn't a canon UI.

the video record time says 60 minutes and 45 seconds, which is 30 mins + too long.

there's no flash release button, even though it has a flash.

It's getting a hotshoe even though the G7X series never had one before and that adds case thickness.

it doesn't say powershot anywhere, and powershots ALWAYS say powershot somewhere.

edit:

there's no microphone holes for left / right microphones.

there's no lever for silent versus clicky lens dial

add some more:

there's no infrared sensor in the front of the camera.

and FINALLY.

there is no record button. PASM dial.

Tapping the record touch screen button would suffice. It may allow you to go into video mode and the shutter becomes the record button. I would like that to be the case, but I have no hopes on this being real.

I am not expert, but I am also growing skeptical.  I am looking at my G7X II.  It doesn't say powershot on it, so I do not think that is a factor, but here are a few observations:
  • no observable wifi button
  • A nice addition to the II vs the I was the switch that changed the front ring to and from a smooth motion, that is lost in the attached pics, which seems unlikely to me
  • I can accept the new fonts and user interface.  Looks more modern and trendy, and maybe Canon is making that push, but look at the "OK" instead of "set" seems really off.  Every Canon camera I have has "Set" in the center of the back dial, not "OK"
  • "Breccia" is a rock, I have no clue about that
  • Looking at the middle picture, the side just is not thick enough.  Could be an angle, but looks wrong


I can get around the hot shoe and mic jack, as this is a popular vlogging camera and those fit that market well.

So, could be that this is legit, but it is a massive departure for Canon, a company not known for massive departures.  Also, some things really do look off, even if they decided to make a big change.

I am now a skeptic.

The airplane wing managed to make it to the 60th second without ticking over the next minute.

It doesn't say powershot on it

should say it on the top. center.

as far as the other stuff .. yeah .. i added a bunch later.. no PASM, no set menu button, no record, no microphone holes, no infrared sensor, etc

just too much stuff in there that is different and canon never changes a camera drastically on a Mark n update.

"USB-C"...previously Canon always used the USB symbol.

This is almost an exercise in perspective...seeing what you want to see, but as soon as you cast in doubt, there are issues all over the place.

And you are right, "Powershot" is written across the top of the G7X II.
