G7X Mark III Reviews
The little G7X Mark III has been received rather well, in this review ePhotoZine has taken a look at the camera and given it 4 out of 5 stars.
At a glance the G7X Mark III has;
- 20.2MP 1″ Stacked CMOS Sensor
- DIGIC 8 Image Processor
- 4.2x Optical Zoom f/1.8-2.8 Lens
- 24-100mm (35mm Equivalent)
The G7X Mark III is currently available. Pick yours up today.
The Canon Powershot G7 X Mark III is a welcome update to the G7 X Mark II, and offers a number of updates that should impress both photographers and videographers. Including being able to shoot at 30fps (raw burst), or upto 20fps (with JPEG, raw, or both).
For photographers, who don't need the microphone socket, then the G5X II offers an excellent 5x optical zoom lens with additional reach, and better image quality. The images from the G7X III, at wide-angle, can be a little soft towards the edges and corners of the frame, and macro performance left us a little disappointed, but in every other situation, results are good. By reviewing the G5X II first, we have been spoilt by the stellar performance of the new 5x optical zoom lens, which has left us more critical of the G7X III image quality performance.
For videographers, the G7 X III with microphone input, 4K video, and 120fps FullHD video will be an easy choice to make, and an immediate purchase choice. There are are only a few minor niggles, that could be the fly in the ointment for some, including the lack of 24fps video recording, and the lens control ring clicks being there. The camera certainly offers much higher "bang per buck" than the RX100 VII fron Sony, which also offers a microphone socket, but at a price of nearly £1200.

TechRadar also released a review of the G7X Mark III, and had this to say about it;
- Great handling and build quality
- Effective face detection
- Responsive and clear touchscreen
- Mic port is a very nice touch
- Very effective image stabilization
- Nice colors in images
- No hotshoe for external mics
- No built-in viewfinder
- Slightly aggressive noise reduction
- AF system a little dated
- Overexposure frequently occurs
The PowerShot G7 X Mark III faces some strong competition from the likes of Sony and Panasonic, but with a longer-than-usual lens, great handling and a whole suite of niceties for videographers, it succeeds in offering enough to warrant its place in a populated section of the market.
