I have never ever needed a filter thread on my pocket camera. It's good that they continue to keep it compact by not introducing such useless features.Those idiots still can't put filter threads on the front element like every other camera maker, so don't expect too much. Not even my g5 had filter threads. Remember, they have to remove or hold back features to put on other models thinking you are going to buy several. Canon should be ashamed with what they have done to their compacts.
So canon did not implement dpaf and the sensor looks the same. Basically the upgrade is for 4k video and higher fpsWhat makes you think it's a leaked shot? Many times the current version is used as the image for a rumor.
Either they had massive problems in developing a Mark III, or the Mark II was a strong seller for all these years. I mean, the Mark II is really old for a compact camera.
DPAF it must have.
If you want to pay a higher price for a worse UI, you can go buy a Sony.3 years and 5 months, so dates back to 2015, but the Mark III doesn’t seem to have advanced from all that time.
Canon G7X III is now on par with the RX100 IV, let alone the VA, VI, or soon to be announced VII.
It’s unfortunate Canon’s Powershots are always out dated by the time they are released compared to the competition.
Sony invented this class and is still relying on Sony sensors....disappointing.
The sensor is (likely) newer with better AF, and there is BLE for reading GPS data from your phone. Still, not a huge reason to upgrade.Same sensor and no GPS. Since I do not care for video I think I will keep my G7X MkII.
Yes! That would be a good idea. I was toying with the idea of getting the underwater case but being close to its upgrade gave me second thoughts.The sensor is (likely) newer with better AF, and there is BLE for reading GPS data from your phone. Still, not a huge reason to upgrade.
I wish they have exactly the same underwater case (they look similar enough).
Pay $350 more for the lack of touchscreen. Meh.Nah, but for now the better camera is the RX100 VA.
Pay $350 more for the lack of touchscreen. Meh.
And, compared to what is expected from the G7X III, no BLE (which is a really big deal to me), no mic port (which is a big deal not to me, but to lots of other people).
The II already can get GPS data from the phone. I usually leave that off rather than eating battery from both devices. It may not be that much, but out tromping around on a trip I try to conserve power for the day. When I think I won't recall where I was shooting, I'll get out the phone and make one picture with it. If in doubt, I can compare time stamps from both devices to pin down where I was at the time.and there is BLE for reading GPS data from your phone.
Well, if your idea of using a camera is a selfie stick, it's understandable why you don't want a touchscreen.Sounds like you prefer a selfie stick with your camera on that touchscreen.
I'm not shooting with specs, I'm shooting with a camera, so Canon doesn't disappoint me.So Sony came out with the RX100 IV in 2015 which is now yesterday’s specs and in 2019 Canon finally comes out with the Canon RX100 IV. Sorry, but 3 1/2 years in the making, Canon has disappointed.
BLE practically doesn't eat battery. It's called "Bluetooth Low Energy" for a reason.The II already can get GPS data from the phone. I usually leave that off rather than eating battery from both devices.
