    Canon officially announces the PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III

    Yup, I didn't expect that from 'Cripple Hammer' Canon. It was a clear marketing/segmentation move to conciously withhold certain things from certain cameras to boost sales in other areas. But wow, the shitstorm after the G7 X Mark III launch debackle was real. People were reviewing them left and...

    Canon officially announces the PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III

    I live at the beach, so catching stunning sunsets is a regular occurance. The G7 X Mark III gives a nice true to life touch when it comes to colors, much more so than my Huawei P30 Pro Leica setup. The new V1.1.0 firmware update gives it a better C-AF now, though it's still not perfect. With a...

    Canon officially announces the PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III

    I remember seeing the Canon Asia announcement (9th of July already)... https://snapshot.canon-asia.com/article/en/powershot-g5-x-mark-ii-g7-x-mark-iii-powered-up-portability Mentioning: Haven't heard about it since! That is until now...

    Where is the G7x MK III?

    Gordon. P.s. this is the rumors section, stuff seems to move towards the regular section once the camera is out, so you'll find more discussion here: https://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?forums/powershot.49/

    Canon announces an upcoming firmware update for the PowerShot G7 X Mark III

    Well, luckily there's tons of YT videos complaining about the C-AF and returning their cameras left and right. They have now even announced they will add 24p to select cameras that have come without the option (where the Canon cripple hammer struck). Guess they're slowly starting to realize they...

    I hated when Panasonic brought us the G9... the GH5 and then the GH5S. Like... dang it Panasonic. Just make one camera that does it all already. You want me to buy 3 cameras, don't you? Well, I'm buying the BMPCC4K over the GH5S. You happy now? You're pushing me away, damnit.

    More information about the Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III

    Shame the G5XmkII is not a better G7XmkIII. And that it has lost its previous formfactor (with a vari-angle screen, proper EVF and hotshoe) which would've made it perfect (in combination with a 3.5mm mic-in/livestreaming). Not to mention the lack of 24p and DPAF/PDAF or the 10 min restriction in...

    Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II Specifications

    Yeah, been seeing people do that underbracket side attachement method. Of course, kinda is extra fuzz to deal with though... E.g. Sony's RX0 and handle attachement, incl. mount plate with external mic

    Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II Specifications

    Tbh, people get these because they actually fit a pocket, or at the least is very portable, and it's all they need on-the-go when not actually having any particular shoots planned. But you can just whip it out and wing it. Like with the current G7XmkII people will predominantly just use it as-is...

    Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II Specifications

    Cameraconspiracies' Kasey Stern would be happy enough with solid 1080p. :p 4K just makes for lengthier post-production and datahogging. I personally like a liggle wiggle room in post for composition adjustments, warp stabilizing, subtle digital pans/tilts/zooms and of course oversampling, but I...

    Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II Specifications

    Color me interested, actually. Might still turn out the better option in the area of 1" travelcams like the LX100 II and RX100 VI/VA that don't quite nail it. Too bad the Nikon DL-line up never came to be, those looked sexay. But if they can pull it off, this might just do it for me.
