Canon Releases New PowerShot G7 X Mark II, PowerShot SX720 HS And EOS 80D Cameras


Canon has introduced the PowerShot G7 X Mark II with a new DIGIC 7 processor, a new long-zoom compact dubbed the PowerShot SX720 HS and has updated its prosumer DSLR line with the EOS 80D.

The PowerShot G7 X Mark II is powered by a a new DIGIC 7 processor, bringing improvements to camera performance. Maintaining its predecessor's 20.1MP 1"-type CMOS sensor and 24-100mm equiv. F1.8-2.8 lens, the G7 X II brings some updates to the camera's exterior as well, with a re-designed grip, bottom-hinged 3" 1.04M-dot LCD and a front control dial that can switch between clicking or smooth-turning operation.

Canoc says that the new processor allows for face registration and better subject detection in scenes of low saturation or similar colors. In addition, it speeds up camera performance, with Canon claiming continuous 8 fps Raw shooting. Battery life is also 25% better than the original G7 X, with a CIPA-rated number of 265 shots per charge.

Full 1080/60p HD video is offered, along with Wi-Fi and NFC. The G7 X II provides Picture Style processing modes borrowed from the EOS DSLR line, and time-lapse movie mode is included.

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II will be offered for $699 with availability in May.

The PowerShot SX720 HS features new lens with a wider zoom range compared to its predecessor, offering a 35mm-equivalent of 24-960mm at F3.3-6.9. The sensor remains a 20.3MP 1/2.3" BSI CMOS unit with a DIGIC 6 image processor.

In addition, the SX720 HS has a redesigned grip, and battery life has increased to a CIPA-rated 250 shots (355 in ECO mode). Photos can be composed on a 3" LCD display with 922k dots. The camera carries over Canon's Zoom Framing Assist system to automatically zoom in or out to follow subject movement and more accurately keep focus, and also comes with the Story Highlight feature to automatically compile images and videos from a day or event into a highlight reel with music and effects. The SX720 can capture 1080/60p clips with stereo sound.

It will be available in March 2016 with an MSRP of $379.99.

The new EOS 80D is offering a newly developed 24.2MP APS-C sensor, 45-point all cross-type autofocus module, updated Dual Pixel AF for live view still and video recording, and both Wi-Fi and a GPS.

Canon claims its new AF module is capable of focusing in low light conditions down to -3EV at the center point. Dual Pixel AF now offers continuous focus, and all pixels are able to perform phase detection focus while being used for still imaging. Video recording is offered at an improved 1080/60p.

The 80D uses a DIGIC 6 processor and provides a native ISO range in stills shooting from 100-16,000, expandable to 25,600. Burst shooting at up to 7 fps is on par with the 70D. The 80D is equipped with an approximately 100% coverage optical viewfinder and a fully articulated 3" 1.04M-dot touchscreen LCD, as well as built-in Wi-Fi with NFC and a GPS.

The Canon EOS 80D will be available in March for $1199 body-only or $1799 bundled with an updated EF-S 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS USM kit lens.
