Canon has announced two new compact cameras: the G7X Mark III and G5X Mark II. As updates to their previous iterations, these cameras feature 1-inch stacked CMOS sensor, and now run with Canon’s DIGIC 8 image processor and cameras 20.1 megapixels.
The G7X Mark III, designed and marketed towards vloggers and video content creators, has the ability to wirelessly livestream directly to Youtube. It also has vertical video support (not available while using the live streaming capability) for creating Instagram stories or similar content. Additional features include a built in mic jack and fully tilting LCD screen, though no headphone jack. In addition to 4K/30p record capability, it can also record Full HD up to 120p for slow-motion capture.
The G5X Mark II features a newly designed pop-up electronic viewfinder, as well as Panoramic Shot and Star Shooting modes. The built-in stabilized lens is a 5x zoom, or approximately 24-120mm equivalent, and is reasonably bright through the entire range, with a maximum aperture of F1.8 at the wide end and F2.8 at the telephoto.
