Canon PowerShot G7 X III and G5 X aim to appeal to visual storytellers

When you talk about recording videos these days, most people will probably presume you'll be using a smartphone.

With the new PowerShot G7 X III and the PowerShot G5 X II, the camera maker is trying to appeal to "visual storytellers", a.k.a. YouTubers who want to level up their live streaming with a semi-professional camera.

Canon IVY REC clippable camera coming to Indiegogo soon

Once upon a time, crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo were the go-to places for making dreams come true. It's where projects that would have never been greenlit by companies went to become reality. These days, those companies have also jumped on that bandwagon to hold pre-orders or gauge interest in a product they will sell later on for a higher pricee. The latest to use that strategy is Canon whose IVY REC will try to make lifelogging a thing again.

Canon IVY REC is pretty much a new HTC Re

The folks at Canon have a new camera they want you to see, a camera that'll go with you wherever you like, clipped to your belt loop. This camera is the Canon IVY REC, and upon first glance, it reminded us of one of the most strange cameras ever made: the HTC Re. The HTC Re looked for all the world like a fat pipe, the likes of which you'd use to capture video and photos anywhere you went with a tap of its giant physical backside button.

Different camera makers have different strategies for upgrading their product lines. Some prefer to win over hearts by pushing out software updates that make old cameras feel brand new with new features. Others prefer to launch cameras with incremental improvements in the hopes that some customers would upgrade after every other generation.

At first glance, the PowerShot G7 X Mark III seems to be like that but Canon may actually have an ace up its sleeve.

But for this event I wanted to remind myself what it was like to use a real big, professional camera. For this event I used a Canon EOS-1D X Mark II and Canon provided a couple of lenses to make the most of my situation from my most likely vantage point.
