Quick Look: Canon PowerShot G5X Mark III and G7X Mark III

Canon has just released the latest iteration of the popular PowerShot G7X mirrorless camera, the PowerShot G7X Mark III. The update gives the camera the DIGIC 8 processor, a new 1-inch stacked CMOS sensor, and an ISO range bumped up to an amazing 25,600. It delivers enhanced auto focus for fast, razor-sharp photos in a wider range of lighting conditions. Capable of 30 fps shooting in Raw, and 20 fps in JPG

Canon’s PowerShot G5X Mark III has similar capabilities, but also gives photographers 5x optical zoom, thanks to a newly designed f/1.8- 2.8 lens with 24-120 mm focal range, where the G7X Mark III delivers 4.2x optical zoom.

Both cameras are capable of 4K 25p/30p recording without cropping, but where both cameras shine is in sharing content. With YouTube live streaming compatibility for full HD streaming right from the camera, users with a Canon iMAGE GATEWAY account who meet YouTube’s requirements can stream without having to invest in extra hardware and software solutions.
