  • It’s almost impossible to scroll through your social feeds or visit a website and not encounter a video catching your eye – some online video platforms can see 500 hours of video uploaded every minute1. With so many platforms for innovative vloggers and content creators to share their work, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is making it easier for them to produce and distribute quality content with the introduction of creator kits for three of the Company’s newest cameras – EOS 90D, PowerShot G7X Mark III and EOS M200.

    Included in each creator kit is a new Canon accessory. Small and mighty, the new Stereo Microphone DM-E100 doesn’t require a battery as it is powered when it’s plugged directly into the microphone jack of the EOS 90D. The new Tripod Grip HG-100TBR includes Wireless Remote BR-E1 that snaps directly into the tripod, providing the ability to release the shutter and start/stop recording video remotely. The grip can rotate 360 degrees for selfies as well as 90 degrees making it ideal for vertical video with both the PowerShot G7 X Mark III and EOS M200.

    Details for each content creator kit are as follows:

  • @DrDave I agree that the Canon produces slightly softer 4K than the Sony 100 V's. What makes the Canon G 7X iii a better camera is that you get this trio: a fast lens, a long lens (up to 100mm), and built-in ND filters. The Sony RX100 V series offers no ND anymore, and you have to choose between a long lens and a fast lens.

    I am having fun exploring the picture profiles that offer a log gamma - Technicolor Cinestyle and Clog3 (offered by Steve Miller).

    But, overheating in 4K is a real problem.

  • @markr041 looks like 24p will be added....what are your thoughts now that the camera is a little farther along?
    From the samples I have seen, the Sony 100 VII has a slightly sharper video picture, perhaps not as great color, and an internal setting that allows one to show 4K for at least an hour, depending on the temperature. Video samples look between the GH5 and the a6400.

  • And - the new AF firmware!

    https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/details/cameras/point-and-shoot-digital-cameras/advanced-cameras/powershot-g7-x-mark-iii?subtab=downloads-firmware

    Firmware Version 1.1.0 incorporates the following enhancement:

    • A new mode for Movie Servo AF has been added.
    • Autofocus characteristics for Movie Servo AF can be set to [Mode 1], [Mode 2] or [Disable].
      • Mode 1 (newly added, with firmware version 1.1.0): This mode supports quick and responsive autofocus. Use this autofocus mode when you want the camera to be sensitive to tracking the subject, and for situations when the photographer is moving (such as shooting while walking).
      • Mode 2 ((current, with firmware version 1.0.1): This mode supports smooth and natural autofocus when shooting movies. Use this mode when shooting landscapes or subjects with little or no movement.
        "If you prefer the previous AF characteristics, please select Mode 2 after the firmware update."

  • Livestreaming

  • New update coming

    Canon will add 24p video modes to G7X Mark III, both in 1080p and 4K.

    Release in late December.

  • Plans to release new firmware update to improve video autofocus performance

    In response to feedback from customers about the recently launched PowerShot G7 X Mark III, Canon U.S.A. plans to issue a firmware update that can help improve video autofocus speed, accuracy and subject detection performance.

    This update will be free for all customers to download from the Canon U.S.A. website at the end of October 2019.

  • so they'll up the firmware and fix the AF, how this build got past QC boggles the mind, especially given the target market.

    I would be so very interested if you guys tested the vertical mode, as I moved to vertical production and it's rough without a real camera. I am shooting on PHONES ffs. Specifically if you could evaluate the equivalent FoV in vertical mode, how it obtains the 9:16, what's the native aspect ratio of the sensor, that sort of thing.

  • Canon evidently is working to improve the autofocus of the G7X iii. See:

  • The G7X ii is more versatile than has been recognized:

    1. It shoots 5.4K RAW at 30 fps. I get about 90 frames of 5.4K RAW video now with a faster card, slowed down to 24p that is about 3.5 seconds per clip. Yes, real RAW.

    1. It can produce ProRes 422 HQ video clips, It has a clean HDMI out in 4K. So, connect to a Ninja V and you have a cinema rig. All the touch screen controls on the camera work. And, no overheating.

  • 24p hack pls

  • Low-Light Examples:

  • Sound test with external mic: acoustic and electronic music outdoors.

    Microphone: Sony ECMXYST1M

  • Bummed there is no 24p. 'Cause it would be soooooooooooo hard to include it.

  • @markr041

    Nice progress, let me know if you want to do MTF stuff.
