Upgraded 4K?! Canon G7X III and G5X II Unboxing and Initial Setup!

by birtanpublished on April 17, 2021

Kanon very recently updated their point-and-shoot camera line the g5x mark 2 and the g7x mark 3 let's get them out of these boxes what's up everyone I'm the everyday dad and if I can figure it out you can figure it out so I'm very excited I love point shoot cameras over here is the rx100 mark 5 which is one of my favorite cameras of all time so when Canon said that they were gonna start putting out more 4k cameras of course I'm gonna love it before we do open these up I'd like to thank my friends over at B&H Photo for loaning me these two cameras to make this series of videos on now these are

Production models so this is what you would get if you bought one so let's start let's do lower number first so let's start with the g5 x mark 2 now I've never actually used a g5 X of any kind I have used the g7 X mark 2 before and it's an okay point shoot again I personally own the RS 105 which is a couple years old but it's one of the best bang for the buck cameras that you're gonna find oK we've got all of the books register in Canada only I guess we don't want to register here in the good old US of A oh here we go limited warranty g7x mark – got to have

That literature now one of the benefits of having a point shoot camera right is that you don't need a lot to get it to work so these boxes are small and don't have much I mean what I like a lot more gizmos I would always like more gizmos but at least they give you like that a battery charger like even expensive Sony cameras do not give you a battery charger and here in a cheap point-and-shoot that you cheap and here on a point shoot they give you yes now I've never again I've never actually used the g5 line of cameras I don't exactly know what it's for but we're

Gonna find out so it's got a little wrist strap how many of you guys use the wrist straps that come with your cameras leave a comment below I want to know I'm always curious because I've literally have never used a wrist strap in my life okay we've got the battery come on come on I guarantee there's no charge in this we've got the twelve hundred and fifty million power battery looks like a pretty standard affair looks pretty nice we'll be ready for that and then is that everything I will Canon I will say I like your cameras but you have like your packaging is some of the worst like even

The EOS which is a game that I very much like the packaging distinct so here is the g5x mark – now that is okay that is a nice that camera feels awesome it's got a very nice like clickable aperture ring here what do we get we got the flip up screen of course we need the flip up screen how am I going to be able to review and see and make sure that my footage is good without the flip up screen it's got a tripod mount on the bottom the battery and SD card now one of the things that I'm excited to try

Out on the g7x is the g7 X Mark 3 now has a audio in Jack which is so awesome the g5 X does not but everything feels pretty good I do like on canons point shoots they have to do a little dial here and try to make up for space you got a rotating dial on the back it looks like is that at blue there's some kind of sensor like right here on the back next to the screen you've got a viewfinder that's pretty nice I don't think the g7x has that so if you want the viewfinder you got to go with the G 5x and the pop-up flash okay that feels pretty yeah I like that is a good

Feeling camera I like it it does I rarely use view finders but if it's something that if you're in bright sunlight and you can't see the screen well then yeah you need a viewfinder so let's set this down so the g7x mark 3 oh I'm sorry G 5 X is your 5 minutes of unboxing are over okay now the g7x mark 2 is the one that's like the closest aligned to the rx100 series of cameras so it's the one that I'm pretty excited about now we've got more literature register your Canon now register you it okay I guess I could have looked at both sides of the the

Instruction books like to not let's not confuse the instruction booklets okay and here we also have the battery charger again I'm gonna be very happy that it does come with a battery charger safety note again don't plug this in to an electrical outlet that it's not designed for you don't wanna get electrocuted that's some dad advice let's see what else they did not give us because the again cannon pretty pretty stingy on the old the old accessories we got the battery they do use the same battery right so this is a 1,250 1,250 milliamp

Hour battery they are the same n B 13 L battery and though this one does not go it does come with a wrist strap okay crisis averted everybody we have the second wrist strap you hear that we have the second wrist strap okay now we're at the g7x mark 2 now if one of these if I were to buy one of these this would be the one that I would more than likely buy it also has a very nice aperture ring it feels good like that is a good feeling point shoot one of the problems with point shoots right is they're so small

It's hard to comfortably hold them but this has a really nice grip on it where if your gonna be yeah it doesn't have a viewfinder where if you're gonna be like holding it it's so much nicer to hold that it does have the microphone in Jack look at that that is glorious the rx100 mark 7 should also have one of those I'm so happy that we finally have the ability to use good microphones on point shoots now it doesn't have a hot shoe mount as you can see here so where are we gonna put the microphone we'll have to we'll cross that bridge when we come to it but again it's got the dual dial

On top I'm a big fan of that it's got the rotating dial on the back it's got the record button it does not have the same little here let's compare the two it does not have the same necessarily it has a similar body design but it's not the same I do think I like the grip on the g5x more than I like the grip on the g7x the g7x does seem to be a little bit smaller of a camera but they have very similar I mean it's almost the same oK we've seen what comes in the box we're gonna pause we're gonna charge up the batteries then we're gonna give these both a shot to see I'm very excited

About that mic jack that's the thing that I'm most excited about so we're gonna pause we're gonna charge up the batteries and I'll see you in a second okay I gave them like 10 minutes to charge cuz again I'm just super excited I even grabbed an SD card because I always forget the SD card so let's start off with the G five x mark two and see what its menu system looks like I mean it's probably gonna be very similar to all other canon menu systems but okay cancel oh let's see what we got what is that that might be like a sensor for the for

The eyepiece what's up let's see if it is the case yep so that's the okay so like another camera like all cameras these days have like these little sensors so when you put the camera up to your eye it stops the screen so that's what that's for that's so that's pretty cool that's it an elegant little solution for that so is it fully touchscreen it is touchscreen does it do for K all it does for K without a crop do you see that that's the first time I think this is the absolute first canon camera that I have ever seen do for K without a crop that is insane okay so

What are our record rates now that's disappointing there's not a single 24 I don't shoot in 24 but I know there's plenty of people out there that do and that's disappointing to not see a single 24 you've got HD at 60 Full HD at 60 Full HD at 30 or four K at 30 now this would work for me I only use 4k 30 so that would be awesome what do we got high frame rate enabled and you've got 1080p 20 that's better than the ESR the ESR does 720p 120 frames per second so that's that is awesome but you lose autofocus dynamic is okay that stinks but it's cool that you got it so let's

Disable that what else do we have in these menu systems wind filter yeah blah blah blah oh and D filter this does have a built-in ND filter which is incredible I love cameras that have built-in ND because you just never know can you turn it on from here and Dion I love it I can't which we go outside to try this stuff out I cannot wait everything else feels really good about the cameras so let's okay we'll turn you off set you to the side and now to the one that I mean if we're being honest the g7x is the main attraction in my book the g5x is just kind of like a thing to also try

Out and we will make videos about both don't worry but the g7 with its audio adapter is the that I am most excited about so let's see does it also have its got 4k also without a crop that is so good now what I think they've done I can't prove this and I don't know specifically what sensors in here but with the abilities of this camera it seems an awful lot like they got the sensor from the rx100 mark 4 and put it in here but we'll see I mean it is like the rx100 mark 7 now but ok it's also got an ND i love indeed autofocus now what i'm disappointed

About the most in these 2 cameras is canons known for a few things but the big one when it comes to video is dual pixel autofocus neither of these cameras have dual pixel autofocus and if you remember my g7 x mark 2 video the thing that I didn't like was how spotty the autofocus was and my very very disappointed but let's say you in the manual movie exposure ISO Auto heck no heck no we will expose put your naso 640 you are at f1 point there we go let's change everything ok ok there we go we now are on the Canon g5 X so I've got it you saw me I've got it set to 4k

I've it said 1 over 60th we're at 4k 30 so we've got the shutter speed at 60 we're at F 1.8 we're at ISO 320 now the audio you're hearing this does not have a microphone in Jack so we are still going through the gh 5 over here but this is the image quality and from the screen here it looks incredible the problem I have when you come to like one inch sensor cameras is generally unless it's one of these points it is 2.8 at the wide but being able to have 1.8 at the wide should be giving us some very clean images and I just love I do really like Canon skin tones now what I like

Again what I like C log absolutely but if we can't have it this is pretty good so this is the indoor image quality of the g5 X in it 4k 30 frames per second in the exact same studio lighting that the gh 5 is currently recording on so that's the G 5 X so let's pop my spare SD card over to the g7 X and see how it looks especially we've got it plugged into a lavalier mic because we're gonna check some audio before we head outside and hit record we are again in ok and we are now on the g7x mark 3 it's crazy to think that we're already in mark 3 territory but again this is 4k 30 this

Is 162 shutter speed because we're at 30 frames per second we're at F 1.8 and we're at ISO 400 in 4k and this is the audio that you're getting out of the g7x mark 3 with the boya lavell ear mic with the audio turned all the way down inside of the camera which is generally how you know with a quick setup turnaround time that's what I normally do just turn it all the way down to be safe and let the microphone do the heavy lifting but yeah this is the the same lighting just like the g5x I can see the autofocus around my face I'm curious to see like on both cameras

How well is the autofocus holding up but what I really want to do before it's getting ready to get dark outside because I just start a little bit later today I want to hop outside and see how the video quality looks outside as a quick initial impressions thing so we'll see out there I'm soo I'm just so stoked I am so excited about these two cameras okay I'll see you outside yeah okay welcome to the outdoor quick vlogging test initial impressions of the g7x mark 3 and the g5 x mark 2 so we've got this it's the same setup that you just saw a minute ago I was just too

Excited I ran right outside with the cameras let's turn on the nd because nd is on we've got everything else set up again we will be recording audio through both the main camera here and the g7x mark 3 which is still crazy to say own a neat little feature that I just realized is it has a record button maybe the g7x mark 2 had this but I don't remember it's got a record button on the touchscreen that's pretty darn useful like that's a neat function what I like that Canon I'll give you credit on that ok let's see what we got here so this is the g7 X mark 3 with the audio being

Recorded with the g7 X mark 3 and the other camera as a backup but yeah this is it's so light I do have the stabilization turned on it should have the electronic image stabilization I think the Canon has and the is stable as a built into the lens so the two stabilizations together should be giving some pretty awesome results right now and it is so light I love point shoot cameras we need to do more point shoot cameras here in the channel look how small this thing is this thing is very very small it's easy

To whip around just make sure that you get what you need out of your shots I do yeah this will have to figure out a fix for this maybe get a shorter level ear mic but I really like this I'm very excited we're again we're in 4k I'm excited to see how this works out how the audio sounding how the stabilization looks because from this from the screen right here it looks darn impressive darn impressive okay so this has been the g7 X mark 3 now we're gonna try the g5 x mark 2 I love trying out new cameras it's that I love I love it it just makes me happy ok g5 X ok so this is the g5 x

Mark 2 same settings 4k 30 frames per second 1.8 400 iso stabilization everything else except the audio is being recorded with the camera set to auto it does not have a plug-in mic port so this is just the audio being recorded on the cameras internal microphones but again it's super lightweight I like how easy these things are to just move it is a little bit later I should probably bump the ISO or put it in auto or something like that but we'll see I'm again I'm impressed with canons point shoots I really wish though I really wish that they had dual pixel autofocus

I mean Sony's point shoots do get their phase detection autofocus which is something that Sony's famous for but yeah this one is also nice and light Oh normally I mean normally when I make these videos my shoulder I can hold it for just long enough so that you can see how the footage looks and then my shoulder falls off ok so which ones you guys know how that looks I've got to go review but let me know in the comments what kind of videos would you like to see about the g7x mark 3 and the g5 x mark 2 super excited to try these out and show them to you thanks for watching
