Canon G7X III on the way soon - some new things

User Rating: 0 / 5

 

 

 

 

Will the Canon G7x III be the ideal Vlogging camera 

 

New to the Canon G7X III 

  • Pop Up EVF - electronic viewfinder  -  similar to that of the Sony RX100 models 
  • 4k VIdeo 30
  • 30 Frames Per Second continues shooting RAW -  we do not know if that is with AFC or just AFS 
  • Slow motion video in HD 120 Frames Per Second - we do not know if that is with AFC or just AFS as well as if there is audio 
  • Mic in port for audio recording
  • WI-FI and Bluetooth  
  • DIGIC 8 processor and a Stacked 1 inch CMOS sensor

What sets the G7X III apart from the Sony RX100 m5/6 and the Lumix LX10 / 100/200  is that the Canon G7X III has a Mic in port which will allow VLoggers particularly to be able to use external mic's ( wired and wireless ) - along with a Flip Up Over, LCD where the Vloggers can see themselves to make sure they are in the video -  along with a 24-120 mm F1.8-2.8 wide lens.

We still do not know if there will be a Crop in 4k mode - most likely it will have some crop but we will find out how big -  we do not expect a Crop in HD mode.

The big questions are -  will it have PDAF - Phase Detect Auto Focus   -  Will it have Face/Eye Auto Focus and if so how good is it -  something important for Vloggers.

Price not know as of yet but we expect it to be under $749 USA -  possibly $890 to compete with he Sony RX100 VA and the next RX100 model 

Note the Sony RX100 V  is now Discontinued - so we expect to see a new Sony RX100 VII soon -  the Sony RX100 VA  is listed for $998 

Our guess is that the G7X III has a Sony sensor - possibly the RX100 V  sensor as Sony most likely will have a new sensor for its new RX100 model we expect to see this summer.  If so then that is good news as it has Phase Detect sensor on the sensor and does quite well in tracking.  

We do not expect to expect the new Sony RX100 model to have a significantly better sensor like in low light performance - our guess it will inherit the new tech from the Sony A6400 - with Object tracking and faster read-out.

Most Vloggers will not need the object tracking so might opt to get the Canon G7X III as it will have a Mic in port which we do not expect to see in the new Sony RX100 model

Canon G5X II on the way

User Rating: 0 / 5

canon g5x m2

Rumor has it that a new Canon G5X II is on the way.  No specs have leaked yet. We can expect a new 1 inch BSI sensor.  We do not expect to see a bump in Mega Pixels rather improvements in low light performance and better tracking focus to compete with the Sony RX100 V/VI cameras.

Many will like to see a Mic In jack for vlogging as the G5X II will have a fully articulated LCD display and is relatively small and light.   But so far the manufacturers have either left out a Mic In jack or crippled the video tracking focus so Vloggers are still looking for their ideal Vlogging camera.

It is quite ironic that the manufacturers have still not made the ideal Vlogging camera - although of course there is relatively a small number of VLoggers.

If Canon included a decent tracking focus - Dual Pixel Focus and a Mic in then we think that the GX5 II would sell quite well.  Time will tell.  We will keep you posted

Canon EOS-M50 announced

User Rating: 0 / 5

The new Canon EOS-M50 is here - might be an ideal Vlogging camera -  Dual Pixel AF - fully articulated LCD - Touch LCD - Mic In 

But there are big drawbacks - There is no Dual Pixel AF in 4k video recording (Contrast Only) - also there is large cropping of video when Electronic Image Stabilization is engaged.

There is No Panorama mode - 

  • 24.1MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • 2.36m-Dot OLED Electronic Viewfinder
  • 3.0″ Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD
  • UHD 4K and HD 720p120 Video Recording
  • Built-In Wi-Fi with NFC, Bluetooth
  •  Dual Pixel CMOS AF  -    But NOT in 4k video  - only contrast base AF in 4k 
  • ISO 100-25600, Extended ISO 51200
  • Silent shutter
  • Combination 5-Axis Image Stabilization  -  electronic - ( which crops )
