Pros

  • Pocket-friendly design.
  • 1-inch sensor.
  • Bright zoom lens.
  • Tilting touch LCD.
  • Fast focus and burst rate.
  • 4K with mic input and live streaming.

Cons

  • 4K video not available in all modes.
  • Face detection doesn't work with burst shooting.
  • Lens not as crisp as some others.
  • No EVF.

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III is decent for travel photography. It has good image quality, so your photos remain free of noticeable visual noise at moderate ISO levels. This means your images shouldn't appear very grainy. However, they don't stay as sharp as you bump up the ISO, and it has a disappointing autofocus performance as it struggles to track faces and moving objects. That said, it's incredibly portable and has a textured handgrip, which makes it easier to hold in comparison to other compact cameras we've tested.

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III might look familiar on the outside, but rest assured that this is no minor refresh, with a wealth of internal improvements that make it one of Canon's best compact cameras for both stills photographers and keen vloggers alike.

  • Overexposure frequently occurs

Canon has stuck to a winning formula with the G7 X Mark III, keeping the neat, rectangular, pocket-friendly design of its predecessor but adding much more powerful video capabilities for a new generation of blogging/vlogging enthusiasts. The only downsides are the lack of a viewfinder (but maybe you don’t need one?) and the price.
