Re: Leaked: Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III and It Shoots 4K

I'm wondering if they will ever use a upgraded Sony Sensor, the old one was pretty out of date.

Looks like it has a mic input as well, the G1X Mark III got out of date pretty quickly it seems...although this might be fairly close in price.

Re: Leaked: Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III and It Shoots 4K

Ouch! One and a half month ago I got G7X mkII. It is a good thing that I do not care about 4K and that it uses 1 inch sensor but still :-(

It looks also to be USB-C - will it get rid of the battery charger?

Re: Leaked: Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III and It Shoots 4K

Could this mean that Digic 8 is here (seems a bit early considering the first Digic 7 ILC only debuted 18 months ago)? Or is it simply that they have bought a Sony 1" stacked sensor that can offload the data fast enough?

Not a bad start :)
I hope 4K-50/60p is on more high-end consumer camera VERY SOON, not just on Canon C200 ($7500) or C300mk2 ($10000)

By the way, does this camera has any canon log ?
If so, that must be one of the options for easy filmmaking. But, we will see.

I'd be shocked if it has cLOG. Canon doesn't want anything that will take away from their video business. It's why the 5DmkIV didn't ship with it. This looks a a blogger camera. It will be nice if it's priced competitively and I'd be interested in it because I have two newborn twins and I want something to throw in the diaper bag. Looks to be in the same ballpark as Sony's rx100mk. It does 24 fps stills, which is insane. I doubt canon will do that, so hopefully they'll price it less, maybe $700-800, but knowing Canon it will be north of $1000.

Re: Leaked: Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III and It Shoots 4K

Really like my G7X II.

4K is not enough of a reason for me to upgrade. If the sensor, lens, and AF are the same, and it looks like they are, I will likely be staying with the II.

But, for those that want a pocketable camera, the II is very capable. Add in the microphone jacket and the hot shoe, those are solid improvements.

The new design does look nice. The screen looks larger, which is great. The current screen is a bit small for all my thumbs.

YES. YES. YES. Finally no ugly duckling with butt-ugly pseudo prism bump on top! No retro-cr*ap like Fuji. Not bloated. Clean slate! I like. 8)

Would like same type of case only slightly bigger, with FF sensor inside, pop-up EVF [like Sony RX1 R II] and new, slim-fit Canon EX-mount up front. With full Canon EOS user interface, not nerfed Powershot firmware cr*p.

4k .. dont care. Would prefer no video out whatsoever. Stills only for me.

Make it so, Canon ... if you want my money!

what are you smoking over there in the AvTvM Universe? the G7X's never had a bump on top and where always clean / not bloated looking.

Re: Leaked: Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III and It Shoots 4K

At first glance this looks like a really nice camera, and I'm very interested as I'm looking to replace my S110, but I'm just a bit suspicious about the design. Is this a new design departure for Canon? The style and decals are very different from all previous Canons - the model number on the front of Powewrshots is always in italics, and the "bin" symbol on the back is different. The controls also seem ultrta-minimalist - surely on a camera that boasts 4K video, there would be a dedicated "record" button? I also just burnt my dinner typing this, so that's really got me upset!

Re: Leaked: Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III and It Shoots 4K

I was seriously considering the G7M2 last weekend after Canon really blew it with the G1M3, but decided to wait as the G7 has been out for a while.

I'm glad I didn't hit the "buy" button. This looks promising. I'm looking forward to see this camera. I was hoping to having something for a trip in a month, but didn't want to bring my 5DM3.

Crossing my fingers they don't put a lousy lens on it like they did on the G1M3.

Re: Leaked: Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III and It Shoots 4K

Very exciting. But since this is not "Canon realistic" this raises doubts as well. From the screen it looks like it does 4k60p. The icons on the buttons looks different from usual Canon style but looks pretty though at the same time raises doubts about if that was indeed someones photoshop skills. One more reason to doubt that is the timeline. It says 120 min 60 seconds? Did I read that correct? If so, is that showing the largest number possible? Does that shoot more than 29:59 continuously? Not normal for Canon right? What is Breccia?

That must be the PAL system? used widely in the UK and parts of asia instead of 30fps and 60fps like in the US they use 25 and 50 fps

I would guess you cannot get one of this in your hands in a month if this is going to be a cp+ announcement. Can you?
