Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III

Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III is the first to feature the latest 1-inch image sensor for higher continuous shooting performance and 4K video and Vlogger features. The camera thus offers unique features in a compact housing. But what does the G7 X Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III really do? We’ll find out in the test.

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III even accommodates a powerful 24-100mm zoom in the almost 4.1-centimeter thick case, thus offering slightly more focal length than the competition of the same size.

Pros And Cons Of The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III

Pros

  • Despite the compactness, the housing is reasonably ergonomic
  • A touch screen that can be folded up to 180 degrees
  • A high-speed lens with more zoom range than competitor lenses
  • High dynamic range
  • A high-resolution lens in the image center

Cons

  • Low detail and still visible noise at higher ISO sensitivities
  • High edge drop of the resolution
  • Neither flash shoe nor viewfinder

Ergonomics and Workmanship

At around 10.6 x 6.1 x 4.1 centimeters, the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III is pleasantly compact, but with a ready-to-operate weight of 303 grams, it weighs in at an impressive level. This is certainly due above all to the robust metal housing and, of course, the fast lens.

Although the Canon is no thicker than a comparable RX100 III from Sony, it offers a zoom lens with a slightly longer telephoto focal length (24-100 instead of 24-70 mm 35 mm equivalent) without sacrificing speed (F1.8-2.8). An optical image stabilizer is also built-in.

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III has a rubberized handle that makes the camera posture safer compared to Sony’s competition without making the body larger. Chapeau, Canon.

Compared to the predecessor model, this rubber also wraps itself around the body on the other side of the lens, so that the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III looks a little higher quality and more noble.

Despite the compact housing and the resulting lack of space, the buttons on the back are surprisingly large and can therefore also be used by men’s hands. As always, the combination of a four-weigher with a rotating ring is somewhat problematic, as the motorcyclist can accidentally press a button while turning. With the G7 X, however, the problem is quite limited, you can get used to the wheel, which is quite handy.

But the lens ring is much nicer. It is large, handy, and rests comfortably, but quietly. If you want to adjust discrete values, such as the focal length in steps, the aperture, the ISO sensitivity, or the exposure time, you can do this precisely. If, on the other hand, you want to zoom continuously, you can use the zoom rocker, which is arranged in a ring around the shutter release.

The switchable detent of the predecessor model, on the other hand, no longer exists. Especially when focusing manually this is not so pleasant and therefore a step backwards compared to the G7 X Mark II. The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III, however, has as standard a manual focus setting via touch elements on the screen. But that doesn’t make it any better, because it doesn’t make the camera nice to operate when focusing manually. By the way, both a focus magnifier and focus peaking are available.

The exposure correction wheel also has to put up with a bit of criticism, as it can easily be misadjusted. After all, the exposure correction wheel only has an effect in the creative programs, so that automatic snapshots can’t accidentally spoil their pictures here.

Those who want to combine the automatic exposure with the exposure correction have to switch to the program automatically. New is a position on the wheel where the correction is controlled via the multifunction wheels of the camera, but the adjustment range remains at +/- 3 EV in 1/3 EV steps.

The smaller program dial is located above the exposure compensation wheel. It even provides a custom position for recalling preferred recording settings. The Quick Menu, which allows you to adjust other important recording parameters that do not have their own buttons, also contributes to fast operation.

The main menu has the usual Canon structure, into which you may have to learn something. With eight shooting menu pages, four playback menu pages, one wireless menu page, and five setup menu pages, it’s just about as easy to find. Frequently used menu items can also be accessed more quickly thanks to the “My menu” functionality where you can pick your favorite menu items.

The rear screen offers good space utilization in a 3:2 aspect ratio, as the image sensor has the same aspect ratio. With a diagonal of 7.5 centimeters and a resolution of 1.04 million pixels, it offers the usual cornerstones and good image quality.

Thanks to a maximum luminance of around 800 cd/m², it can also be read quite well in the sunshine. By the way, it’s a touch screen that you can use but don’t have to use. But for some functions, such as focusing on a certain subject detail with a fingertip, this is very practical.

In addition, screen selection areas are offered for some functions, which further simplifies operation. Those who like to photograph from ground level or overhead perspectives can fold the screen up or down accordingly. Even a fast selfie is easy to create thanks to the 180 degrees upward folding screen.

On the other hand, the Canon does not have a viewfinder. A flash shoe is also missing, so no external viewfinder can be connected. For a pop-up flash, on the other hand, Canon has found room in the case.

With a micro HDMI and a USB C socket and a stereo microphone connection, the interface equipment for this camera class is quite good. However, the USB-C socket is quite unsatisfactory. Theoretically, not only can the battery be recharged, but the camera can also be permanently powered. But be careful: If the USB charger or the Powerbank does not meet the necessary specifications, the battery is not charged more slowly, but not at all. For example, a simple charger with two amps is not enough. The built-in WLAN and Bluetooth can also be described as interfaces, not least because there is an optional Bluetooth radio remote trigger.

With 265 shots, the battery also offers a not too lavish battery life. Together with the SD memory card, it sits in a compartment on the camera floor next to the tripod thread located outside the optical axis. This is not practical for tripod operation.

The memory card slot easily swallows large SDHC or SDXC cards and supports the UHS-I standard. For 4K video recordings, the memory card should support the speed class U3 or the video speed class V30, because around 15 MByte/s is required.

Equipment And Features

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III features both a fully automatic mode that automatically controls everything, including Scene Recognition and selectable scene modes, allowing the photographer to choose which automatic mode to use. Thus it is also possible for those who do not want to deal with the “technical” side of photography to take photos. But even experienced photographers who want to take a quick snapshot will enjoy the fully automatic mode.

The HDR mode, which should be used from a tripod, is also hidden between the scene modes. It records high-contrast scenes with three different exposures and assembles them in such a way that details can still be seen in both the brightest and darkest areas.

Unfortunately, the HDR mode cannot be used in the creative programs P, Av, Tv, and M, so experienced photographers will have to use the exposure bracket. Here, however, a maximum of three shots with two EV exposure differences each is possible, which must be assembled on the PC using the appropriate software. The same applies to the focus bracketing function: this is especially useful for macro shots, but the images in the series must be assembled on the PC using focus stacking software.

Under the program selector wheel of the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III sits the exposure correction wheel. It makes sense that it does not work in the fully automatic mode, but only in the creative programs.

Thanks to the two control wheels, the recording parameters can be set quickly and easily in the creative programs.

In addition, a live exposure preview and a live histogram ensure that you can judge the exposure before taking the picture. Anyone who wants to work with an open aperture for a shallow depth of field in a lot of light will quickly reach the limits of the mechanical shutter with the shortest shutter speed of 1/2,000 seconds. The electronic shutter, on the other hand, works with up to 1/25,600 s short exposure times.

Canon has also provided the lens with a swing-in neutral density filter. It reduces the light by three f-stops. Flow effects, e.g. from water, can also be achieved by using the shutter that can be closed up to F11. If desired, the G7 X can also automatically retract the filter. By the way, the filter also helps to reduce diffraction blur, for example, because you can work with F4 instead of F11.

Those who like flash utilization, on the other hand, do not get their money’s worth so much. As already mentioned at the beginning, the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III doesn’t offer a flash shoe.

In addition, the integrated pop-up flash with a guide number of five doesn’t have a lot of power. You don’t even have to think about a wireless flash controller. Standard features like the flash at the end of the exposure instead of at the beginning, a long-term synchronization, as well as a flash exposure correction, are of course available.

There is even a manual flash output control, but only in three unspecified levels. But even here a limitation is annoying because it only works in manual as well as semi-automatic exposure mode.

Theoretically, it would be possible to trigger slave flash units because the measuring pre-flash does not occur. But you don’t have to take Canon’s lean flash equipment amiss, because the camera is primarily trimmed for compactness, so compromises have to be made. It also has a fast lens. If you want to try to brighten up a scene a little indirectly despite the low power, you can pull the flash back a little with your finger, so that it fires towards the ceiling.

Unlike the RX100 competition, the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III offers a small handle with a non-slip cover.

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III is equipped with the latest image processor Digic 8, which brings the autofocus and the continuous shooting function (together with the fast image sensor) up to speed.

In our test with the testing software we use, the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III showed an accelerated autofocus compared to its predecessor. Depending on the focal length, it took between 0.16 and 0.21 seconds for the camera to focus and release from infinity to two meters. The pure shutter release delay of 0.03 seconds is also very short and almost twice as fast as on the predecessor model.

With the continuous shooting function, Canon promises 20 frames per second for 118 JPEG or 55 raw shots in a row. According to our measurements, the camera is a bit slower with just over 19 frames per second, which we don’t find tragic considering the values. More serious is the fact that already after 84 JPEG or 45 raw shots, the end is reached.

Also unattractive is the irregular continuous-advance function that always stops briefly, then rattles through several fast images, stops again, and so on.

Uniform recordings do not exist with a full buffer. Speaking of buffers: It only takes a few seconds until the buffer is emptied again. By the way, the autofocus is only adjusted at a maximum of eight frames per second.

The raw burst mode with 30 frames per second for 70 frames in a row also fails to live up to its promises. We even got 30.5 frames per second, but only for 41 shots in a row. In any case, the mode is subject to numerous limitations, for example, it only works with electronic instead of mechanical shutter, with the exception of the manual exposure mode it is taken with ISO automatic and the images end up in a large file from which they can only be extracted in the playback mode of the camera or with the Canon DPP software on the PC.

Anyway, the still quite new raw format CR3 of the latest Canon models still lacks broad support on the software market. Here one should inform oneself if necessary before.

The Canon G7 X Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III has not only opened up to the competition in terms of the video function, but also offers functions that you won’t find in other models or only in higher classes.

Nevertheless, there is certainly criticism or potential for improvement here. The stereo microphone connection, for example, is something to be praised, but Canon hasn’t worried about attaching the microphone, because a suitable ISO shoe (flash shoe) is missing. So you have to “break” the compactness of the camera with any cages, arms or the like, if you don’t use a clip-on microphone.

The tripod thread of the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III unfortunately sits both outside the optical axis and too close to the memory card and battery compartment.

The video resolution reaches 4K with either 30 or 25 frames per second, using the full sensor width. The optical zoom and image stabilizer continue to work, while the zoom is slow and barely audible.

The autofocus is also barely audible, but its work becomes clearly visible at 4K resolution, which we don’t mean positively. Although we could not understand the slow or even non-existent focus on faces criticized by some sellers, this works quite well, but the focus reacts somewhat sluggishly and only sharpens slowly. Here one clearly notices that it works purely contrast-based, because sometimes the image even becomes blurred until the camera notices this and changes the focus direction.

With the firmware update 1.1.0, available since May 2020, Canon solves the problem of slow video autofocus by offering two modes: Mode 1 reacts faster to changes, while mode 2 corresponds to the previous behavior. Please see in a paragraph below our analysis of this firmware update.

Unfortunately, the clip length of the 4K video recordings is limited to a good ten minutes. Our camera did not overheat but only became lukewarm at an ambient temperature of around 24 degrees Celsius. However, there is no harm in supplying the camera with more air at the rear by folding down the screen.

In Full HD resolution, 25, 30, 50, and 60 frames per second for almost 30 minutes at a time are possible, in high-speed mode also 120 frames per second. The frame rates depend on whether the video system is set to PAL or NTSC.

It’s also a bit awkward that the video recording button cannot be used to film in any mode, but only in Full-HD. For the full range of settings including 4K recording, HDR video, and manual exposure, you need to set the video mode on the program dial. The automatic video mode with scene recognition also films in Full HD only.

Several editing options are available in playback mode. Images can not only be rotated or cropped, but filters can also be superimposed. Those who have made raw shots can also convert them into a JPEG in the camera. If desired, you can make your own settings, such as brightness, white balance, noise reduction, and other parameters.

With the right USB power supply, the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III can even be powered. The camera is very choosy here, with a simple 2 amp power supply not even the battery charges.

The metal housing of the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III has a plastic insert for the WLAN antenna. The flash must be unlocked manually. New and exceptional in this class, but welcome, is the 3.5 mm microphone connector.

Thanks to built-in WLAN and Bluetooth, recordings can be transferred to smartphones, tablets, or computers. With the help of Canon’s app, the camera can also be remote-controlled, including live image transmission.

Thanks to Bluetooth, the GPS of a smartphone can also be used for geotagging. As a special feature, the G7 X Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III also offers a live stream function via YouTube.

The maximum stream is in Full HD resolution at 25 or 30 frames per second and with six megabits per second, parallel recording on the memory card does not take place. However, the setup is a bit complicated, as you not only have to activate the corresponding functions on YouTube but also create and configure an account in Canon’s Image Gateway.

Image Quality Of The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III

More than seven years ago, Sony launched a small revolution with the RX100, as we now know. Until then, the image quality of compact cameras was not considered to be particularly good and those who wanted high image quality had to choose a system camera. However, the 1″ sensor, which is relatively large for a compact camera with 13.2 x 8.8 millimeters, changed this and ensures that good profits and even growth rates are still possible for manufacturers today, especially with such compact cameras.

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III is also equipped with a fast lens and a 1″ sensor and promises image quality that is just as high as that of a system camera.

 

canon powershot g7 x mark III

The edge darkening of the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III is just as negligible with a maximum of 0.4 EV or less than 25 percent as the distortion, which is very low in wide-angle with less than one percent barrel shape and is no longer present at all at longer focal lengths.

Even color fringes with less than half a pixel in the maximum play no practical role. The only exception is the maximum color fringes in the wide-angle at the edge of the picture, which can become slightly visible with up to just over one pixel when looking closely.

Looking at the resolution measurement of the 20-megapixel sensor at 50 percent edge contrast (MTF50), some weaknesses of the lens become apparent. In the image center, the Canon still achieves a high resolution of 50 line pairs per millimeter (lp/mm) in 35mm equivalent and more (58 lp/mm maximum at 49 mm F2.8) at all focal lengths.

At the edge of the picture, the story looks quite different. In the wide-angle, there are just 22 lp/mm in it. This does not only mean a rather high edge drop of 65 percent at the maximum but also that the image corners become softer for prints larger than 20 x 30 centimeters.

With a medium focal length of 50 millimeters, corresponding to 35mm, 39 lp/mm are achieved at the edge of the image, but for this, you have to dim down to F4 to F8. This is also our recommendation for high-resolution, evenly sharp photos: 50 mm and F4 or 5.6.

With an open aperture, it is only 31 lp/mm at the edge of the picture. At the telephoto focal length, a maximum of 42 lp/mm is reached at the edge of the picture, in the quite large aperture range from F4 to F8. Also here F4 and F5.6 are very well suited for even high-resolution images from the center to the edge of the image.

Beyond F5,6 the diffraction becomes visible in the middle of the picture and beyond F8 also at the edge of the picture, respectively it reduces the resolution significantly. F8 and F11 should be used sparingly with the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III.

However, the 1″ sensor is not only “famous” for its high resolution, but also for its good noise behavior even at higher sensitivities; at least as long as the camera manufacturer has adjusted the image processing well.

Some 1″ cameras, for example, even at ISO 800 or 1,600, still offer usable image quality with acceptable resolution and low noise. To cut a long story short: The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III is not one of them. The signal-to-noise ratio starts at ISO 125 with a good 43 dB, but above ISO 800 it falls below the critical 35 dB mark.

While the Canon has the color noise well under control, the brightness noise above ISO 400 steadily increases and becomes slightly visible from ISO 1.600 at the latest. Much more decisive, however, is the corresponding texture sharpness with which the resolution of the finest details is measured at all sensitivities.

Above ISO 200, the measured value already drops, above ISO 800 it drops more markedly. Up to ISO 800, the images are still quite good but become visibly softer. Above ISO 1.600 there is practically only noisy mud.

canon powershot g7 x mark III

With 265 shots, the small lithium-ion battery of the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III offers just enough endurance. The memory card compartment, on the other hand, also swallows really large SDXC cards.

This means that the Canon easily lags one f-stop behind the best 1″ sensor cameras, which can still deliver acceptable image quality up to ISO 1,600. But at least it’s a little better than its predecessor. In Raw you can get a better balance of noise and detail. You can also reduce the noise suppression in the camera in JPEG, but since the Canon has more noise than the competition at higher sensitivities despite less detail, the noise only becomes more annoying visible.

After all, the G7 X Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III offers a very high input dynamic, which drops only slightly from almost 13 f-stops at ISO 125 to ISO 800 with eleven f-stops and thus moves at the highest level. Only above ISO 3.200 does the value drop below a still good ten f-stops.

The tonal value curve is strongly divided for a crisp picture reproduction. The output tonal range drops as steeply as the texture sharpness over the sensitivities.

The critical value of 160 brightness levels is undercut above ISO 800.

Colors, on the other hand, are reproduced quite precisely by the Canon. Even the strongest deviations are only slightly above the tolerable value. The manual white balance is sufficiently accurate and even the color depth is pleasingly high. Up to ISO 400 over eight million colors are differentiated, up to ISO 3,200 there are still good over two million colors.

The small pop-up flash leads, by the way, according to laboratory measurements, to a significant brightness loss of more than 1.7 f-stops or a good 70 percent. It is therefore recommended to rotate the zoom a little for illuminated image corners.

Conclusions: Is The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III Worth It?

Externally, the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III is an extremely successful camera.

It offers a robust and handy housing with compact dimensions and even packages a slightly larger zoom than the competition without sacrificing light intensity.

The autofocus and the camera in general work quickly, the operation is catchy, and really important functions are not missing, except maybe a flash shoe or a viewfinder.

The picture quality is somewhat disappointing. Not only is the lens not particularly sharp in the wide-angle a problem, but also the image quality is not as good as that of the competition at higher ISO sensitivities.

The noise reduction manages to iron out many details at ISO 1.600, but not the noise. After all, the video function has opened up and even offers extraordinary options such as live streaming or a microphone connection, although due to the lack of a flash shoe, microphone mounting accessories are necessary, which in turn leaves the compactness of the camera on the sidelines.

Firmware Update 1.1.0 for Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III

Canon has released a new firmware version 1.1.0 for the PowerShot G7 X Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III. The background is that many videographers found the autofocus in video mode too slow.

After the update, there are now two modes. In the first, new one, the camera reacts faster to focus changes in video mode. In mode 2, however, the autofocus reacts as before the update and adjusts the sharpness very gently, but also slowly.

The update can be downloaded from the Canon website and installed on your own. If you do not have the confidence to do so, you should contact Canon Service or your dealer.

Firmware is permanent software that is installed on your product and with which the product functions correctly. Canon may periodically release updates to this firmware. If an update is available, it can be downloaded below in this source (1).

Peter Dench
I am Peter Dench. Digital Photographer, born in London 1972, currently living in Deerfield, near Chicago. I have numerous photography expositions and also working in model photography. In this website, PhotoPoint, I usually review cameras provided by local dealers in Illinois and by the manufacturers. Sometimes I, Peter Dench, review lenses too, but only when I have a suitable camera for them. Please let me know in the comments if I can improve any of these articles.
