Canon's latest PowerShot G7 X Mark III has just been released. This comes with a 20.1MP, 1-inch stacked CMOS sensor, and f/1.8- 2.8 lens with 24-100mm focal range (4.2x zoom). It has an ISO range that goes from ISO 125 up to an equivalent ISO 25,600, allowing you to use it in more situations - from cloudy overcast days to high contrast scenarios.

One new key feature is the pre-shoot setting. This starts capture 0.5 seconds before you press the shutter button, so you'll still get the shot even if you're a half-second late. Images will be captured at 30 shots per second in RAW burst mode (20fps in jpeg), so you'll have a good chance of catching the right moment.

The camera also gets focus bracketing so you can get greater depth-of-field when taking macro shots or when you do landscapes. On that note, the PowerShot G7 X Mark III also gets a panoramic mode you can activate with a push of a button. So whether you want to do a vertical panorama or a horizontal panorama, just press the button and pan away.

For those who need to do a lot of livestreaming, you'll love that the PowerShot G7 X Mark III is able to do livestreaming without the need to connect to a smartphone.
