The Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II and Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III have been announced, both offering a 1-inch sensor, high-speed continuous shooting and 4K movie (no crop). 


On the PowerShot G5 X Mark II you'll find a new 5x optical zoom f/1.8-2.8 lens and pop-up EVF while the PowerShot G7 X Mark III has a 4.2x f/1.8 - 2.8 zoom lens and 3.5mm microphone input. Both compacts feature Canon’s DIGIC 8 image processor, a 20.1-megapixel 1.0-type stacked sensor and make use of the CR3 Raw format. 

With a menu system inspired by Canon's EOS cameras and DSLR-style levels of control/personalisation, those looking for a pocket-sized camera with both auto/manual controls will like the look of the Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II and Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III. Plus, the tilting touchscreen makes framing easier and you also have the option to shoot with auto and manual focus.
