We’ve now been told by two people we trust that there is no PowerShot G7 X Mark III coming in the immediate future (ahead of CP+). Both sources said a new G series camera was coming, but later on in 2018. Does that mean the PowerShot G7 X Mark III images are fakes? I think Read more…
Every camera enthusiast around has already gone over the three “leaked” images of a Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III. A lot of people think they’re fake, a lot of people WANT them to be real and others aren’t sure.
We’ve noticed a couple of things that give us pause.
The whole design is completely new for Canon, we generally don’t see changes this big so quickly.
The “MarkIII” on the tilt screen is completely out of place.
The font on the from of the lens is different colors, the “mm”, “x2 IS” and “-” aren’t white.
Powershot is not mentioned anywhere on the camera. Every powershot 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 G7X 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
We put the images through our standard PhotoShop curves testing we do on mockups and have found consistencies between these images and official Canon product photos.
If this is a fake, it’s the best fake of a camera we have ever seen. They’re usually very easy to spot with some PhotoShop curves work. It would also be the first time someone has faked a compact camera. A DSLR, a lens or a Mirrorless we’ve seen numerous times, but I don’t recall a PowerShot being faked.
Is it possible this is an early design rendering from Canon that is not yet complete? That’s possible, although it would be the first 3D design rendering we’ve ever seen.
I’ll know very soon if the PowerShot G7 X Mark III is indeed around the corner, which should help in authenticating these images.
Irvine, California, January 15th, 2018 – Aurora Aperture Inc., a Southern California company specialized in photography filters, today has introduced the world’s first variable graduated neutral density (GND) filter family, the Aurora PowerGXND.
The PowerGXND family is an hard transition GND filter with a continuous range up to 5 stops (ND 0 – 1.5). GND filters are widely used in photography and videography for balancing a high contrast scene for proper exposure.
“The Aurora PowerGXND family is the world’s first variable GND filter,” said Jeff Chen, founder and CEO of Aurora Aperture Inc. “offering a wide range of light balancing capability for both photographers and videographers. Until now users need to carry multiple fixed stop GND filters with light reduction values of one, two, and three stop with no fractional stop value. With our variable GND filters, all you need is one filter and just rotate the filter until you see the desired result, it is truly that easy.”
We have confirmed that a mirrorless camera will be announced next month ahead of CP+ show which begins on March 1, 2018.
While we cannot confirm the “EOS M50” moniker is the camera coming next month, that’s the logical assumption based on past information.
We’re told by a completely unknown source that the next mirrorless camera will shoot 4K video. I was wondering what could possibly differentiate another APS-C mirrorless shooter from the current offerings, and this is certainly one way to do so.
I urge you to take this as a [CR1] rumor until we can confirm some specifications for the upcoming new mirrorless camera.
