Canon PowerShot

Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark III coming relatively soon [CR2]

Yes, PowerShot cameras still exist, though it’s an area Canon does appear to be as serious about anymore for obvious reasons. We’re getting a lot of small updates in the rare new G models.

The Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark III will be no different as far as how big of an update it will be over its predecessor.

Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark III Specifications:

  • 20.1mp
  • DIGIC 8
  • 4x zoom
  • 4K @ 30p
  • FHD @ 120p

Does it feel familiar? It should, this is basically the PowerShot G7 X Mark III with a slower lens and a slightly smaller form factor.

With Canon's new found processing powers, I hope to see future updates with more computational photography features. I will always prefer camera form factor to a phone or future implant or whatever worse is on the looming horizon.

And switch to using their own dual pixel sensors.

However, G9X being the lowest end of these cameras it is no surprise there isn't anything new.

It would be nice to see an update to the G3x with an EVF even if borrowed from the G5x II, but preferably center mounted.

If it has a 24mm lens without too much of barrel distortion, I might be interested.

The language used on this site is getting out of control; the title says "relatively soon"

WTF!?!? It sounds like the camera is coming in 5yrs.

...The G9X 'being the lowest end of these cameras' may be true, but only because it is the smallest and lightest of the bunch.

If the price was right I would buy one...it is truly pocketable.

Im in need of a new pocket camera. But man the G7X III had horrible autofocus. I had to return it.

I was under the impression that the firmware update addressed this.

I have not had any problems, autofocus or otherwise, with my G5X II, nor did I with the G7X II before it.

I only want a G5 X (gen I) body style premium compact with the new Mark II's 24-120 lens and pop-out EVF. Some other things from the G7 X Mark III perhaps, like the 3.5mm mic input, livestreaming capability and such. But not its C-AF! Geez. Some went wrong when a successor has worse AF than its predecessor.

If (and its a big IF) the G9X III has PDAF, then this may be a winner. The current G3X, G5X, and G7X models use older Sony 1" sensors with only CDAF. Sony's more current 1" stacked sensors in the RX100 VI and RX100 VII have hybrid AF (CDAF and PDAF).

With these tiny lenses I would think you have to work hard to get the focus wrong. No matter what the field of view equivalent, they are still optically very wide, on the G5X II 8.8mm to 44mm.
