Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III Review 2023

If you like the aesthetics and control of a conventional camera, the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark IIIĀ  is worth considering. It’s not our favorite small in the class, but it’s a solid performer. The PowerShot G7 X Mark III meets stiff competition from Sony and Panasonic, but it excels in giving enough to justify its place in a crowded market with an extended lens, excellent handling, and a slew of conveniences for filmmakers.

Let’s see Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III Review

Design

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III sports four main dials and a contoured handle with cushion coating. The tiny camera feels quite substantial in the hand because of its high build quality and general attention to detail. Some people may find the aperture settings dial stiff and buried behind the cushion thumb rest, but although this makes it more difficult to turn, it also lowers the danger of it being pushed out of position accidentally. On paper, the camera’s focusing mechanism isn’t as good as other competitors, but it performs admirably in practice. The camera’s tracking feature, according to the reviewer, does an excellent job of keeping up with subjects and has been efficiently integrated.

Power and connectivity

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III includes built-in Wi-Fi and Wireless, allowing you to transmit photographs from the camera to your phone wirelessly. Although live coverage on YouTube is a gimmick, it does function if you have both an Image Gate and a YouTube account. Although in-camera charging is possible, the CIPA certification is just 235 pictures. In between picture shoots, you’ll need a spare battery or an extra battery pack to keep the G7 powered up.

Image Quality

Overall, image quality is excellent, albeit it can be soft at extremes, particularly in close-up shots. Overall, the camera’s metering mechanism operates admirably; overexposure is readily corrected with exposure compensation.

Video Quality

It features a built-in 4K video recording, but if you do not even know how to utilize it, you’ll need to know where to look for it. There’s a mic input, which YouTubers will like, as well as the option to live broadcast. It’s simple to plug a clip-on mic into the side, but difficult to put on the camera itself.

Sensor and lens

The G7 X Mark II takes photographs with a 1-inch-class 20MP image sensor. When operating in JPG format, the camera contains a lot of detail with low noticeable noise. At ISO 1600 and 3200, details fade slightly, but picture quality remains excellent. In Auto ISO mode, the camera won’t go higher than ISO 6400 by configuration. A 20MP sensor and a 24-120mm f/1.8-2.8 zoom lens are included in the PowerShot G7 X Mark III. On a middle assessment, it achieves roughly 1,716 lines at 24mm, which is a tad soft for a device with such a huge sensor. As you go closer to the edge of the frame, the details start to fade, which is an issue for outdoor photographs.

Autofocus Performance

The G7 X Mark III features a new sensor with quicker reading than the original version, as well as certain rising capture capabilities. For quick spurts, the camera records in Raw format at 30fps with fixed focus, and it can also shoot at 20fps in Raw, Raw+JPG, or JPG format. If you want the camera to concentrate between each photo, it slows down to an impressive 8 frames per second.

Pros

  • Excellent grip and construction
  • Face recognition that works
  • Touchscreen that is fast and clean
  • A microphone port is a good addition.
  • Image stabilization is effective.
  • The colors in the photos are lovely.

Cons

  • In some settings, 4K video is not accessible.
  • With rapid shooting, face identification isn’t possible.
  • Some lenses aren’t as sharp as others.
  • There is no EVF.

Conclusion

The PowerShot G7 X Mark III meets stiff competition from Sony and Panasonic, but it excels in giving enough to justify its place in a crowded market with an extended lens, excellent handling, and a slew of conveniences for filmmakers.
