The size and shape of the G7 X III remains the same as previous generations, weighing 10.7 ounces (304 grams) with battery and memory card inserted. It uses the same 4.2x optical zoom lens that’s a 35mm equivalent to a 24-100mm f/1.8-2.8. It also keeps the 3-inch, 1.04 million dot LCD monitor with 180 degrees up and 45 degrees down tilting.
The new G7 X III doubles down on its popularity as a vlogging camera and can now do live streaming straight to YouTube, all in camera. The user pairs the camera to the network or hotspot, can preview their setup before going live, and can even see how many people are watching live right on the display.
The G7 X III also now natively supports vertical video recording for those that produce mobile content for other social media platforms. Along with an updated selfie mode UI and microphone jack, Canon is set to make the G7 X III the go-to vlog camera.
