Canon Powershot G7X Mark III Review
DPReview has completed their review of the Canon PowerShot G7X Mark III.
While they generally like the camera, the conclusion is mixed. Partly due to the fact that Canon is using a Sony sensor without PDAF points, so focus will be more problematic. Maybe for the next go around, Canon will be able to finally use their own DPAF sensors in a 1" format. They give the camera an 81% review score and a silver award.
- Fast 24-100mm equiv. F1.8-2.8 lens
- Raw detail capture and noise levels among the best in class
- Pleasing JPEG color
- Flip-up LCD ideal for vlogging; touch features are well-implemented
- Good 4K video quality with little rolling shutter and no crop
- 30 fps Raw burst mode
- Built-in ND filter
- Live video streaming
- Vertical video capture
- External mic input
- Reliable wireless connectivity
- Lens is soft at wide end
- Continuous AF not available in burst mode
- Autofocus tends to hunt when capturing video
- No 24p support (yet)
- Video on the soft side
- 10 minute 4K video limit
- Below average battery life
- Live streaming is frustrating to set up and often unreliable
- Can only charge over USB with USB-PD chargers or power banks
- No EVF like closest (but more expensive) competitor, the Sony RX100 VA
The Canon PowerShot G7 X III is a compact, well-priced camera which offers very good image quality, a fast lens, good ergonomics and the ability to stream live video straight to YouTube. Its lens isn't super-sharp at wide-angle, video autofocus is so-so, and live streaming is difficult to get working, but overall, it's a good value for the money and well worth considering.
