What? This is Sony sensor and hence imo no chance to appear in Canon's DSLR or MILC bodies? Well, otoh one never knows, maybe Canon will give up and switch to Sony sensors on all fronts ...I'm not terribly interested in a compact, but I like what this sensor tech means moving forward on the last couple of DSLRs and new RF bodies. Better late than never.
That was in the past. There was some content on the Sonyalpharumors page that Sony likes the idea of keeping certain high quality stuff like sensors for themselves and give it only after a certain period of time to other companies aka the competition.but nikon seemed to get good sensors from them for the full frame. and the medium format sensors seem nice too.
The Sony A9 came out over 2 years ago with a Stacked CMOS sensor. We have not seen any other FF camera with a Stacked sensor since then, so Sony is definitely holding back on new sensor tech. The Stacked sensor allows for faster sensor readout like we are seeing now with the new Canon G5/7X.but nikon seemed to get good sensors from them for the full frame. and the medium format sensors seem nice too.
same sensor, same processor........I think it is clear that the G7X III is marketed for vloggers. However, if the intention is that the G5 is for people who just want to take pictures, I don't think the details released provide a clear differentiation on the "pictures" front.
Major differences between the G5 and G7 are $150, lack of mic port on G5, and lack of EVF on G7.
I'm not a vlogger, and I'm solely interested in picture image quality. Does any one have any idea if both models will produce pictures with the same, or very very similar image quality?
At the end, this will drive my purchase decision. If the pictures on the G5 will not be significantly better than on the G7, then I might as well buy the G7 and save $150. I don't think I will ever need the EVF, as I have been using a smartphone to take pictures exclusively for over 7 years and never once have I thought "gee, I could use an EVF".
That might a tough sell once they see the footage from the camera. I suppose it's a slight upgrade from the quality of the Mk II, but the Mk III footage is rather soft and unimpressive. It's a joke compared to the RX 100 VA and VI.I think it is clear that the G7X III is marketed for vloggers.
Yes, Canon Japan released some footage and several people/sites/stores who got pre-pro models posted footage from it also. I was really geeked about the G7X Mk III as an upgrade to my RX100 Mk II. Primarily for stills, but hoping to shoot a little video with it also. After seeing the video footage from the camera I just can't see giving any consideration to it as a usable video camera. I've seen sharper & better looking 720p footage.Are there examples already?
