Canon PowerShot G7 X III features Stacked CMOS sensor and live video streaming

Canon has introduced its PowerShot G7 X Mark III, an enthusiast compact with a neat trick up its sleeve: live video streaming. The Mark II has long been a favorite of vloggers, thanks to its compact size and tilting LCD, and now they can stream live video over YouTube at the push of a button.

The physical design of the Mark III is the same as its predecessor, though it’s a bit lighter. While the lens remains the same as before (24-100mm equiv. F1.8-2.8), the camera has an all-new sensor: a 1″ 20MP Stacked CMOS, which up until now was a Sony exclusive. Powered by Canon’s Digic 8 processor, the G7 X Mark III can shoot Raws at a blazing 30 fps with AE/AF locked, though the burst rate drops down to 8.3 fps if you want continuous AF.
