Canon has announced the PowerShot G7 X Mark III enthusiast compact camera with Stacked CMOS sensor and live video streaming. With its compact size and tilting LCD, the camera is a favorite for vloggers. Now they can stream live video over YouTube at the push of a button.

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III is a premium compact camera with a new 1″-type, 20MP Stacked CMOS sensor. The stabilized lens is the same as on its predecessor: 24-100mm equiv. F1.8-2.8. The G7 X III retains the same 3″ touchscreen display, which can flip upward by 180° for selfies and vlogging. The most notable feature on the G7 X III is the ability to live stream video on YouTube straight from the camera. It can also capture cropped 4K/30p and uncropped 1080 video at up to 120p. Impressively, the G7 X III can shoot Raw images at up to 30 fps with its electronic shutter with locked focus, or 8.3 fps with continuous AF, both with a healthy buffer. The camera can be powered over its USB-C port and has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
