It doesn’t matter if you’re just looking to spice up your feed or if you’re planning on taking your vlogging career to the next level, we’ve found a camera that’ll grab your audience's attention- Canon’s PowerShot G7 X Mark III .

Better than a smartphone

YouTube and Instagram are littered with people uploading their photos and videos from their smartphones, which is fine, but if you’re looking to stand out from the crowd then you won’t regret getting your hands on the G7 X Mark III.

This camera captures in amazing 4k quality, meaning you can snap slow motion footage for captivating B-roll. It’s also got a mic connection which means you’ll be recording with crystal-clear sound. All that power, and it still has a super-portable design so you can shoot from anywhere, which is ideal for any vloggers hoping to hit the streets without having to lug around a heavy bit of kit! You can also choose between the classic black style or mix it up with the silver version, both of which double up as a sleek accessory.

Get creative

One of the best things about this camera is that it makes it so easy to get creative. Whether you’re doing a photo shoot of a meal at an instagrammable restaurant, taking a selfie in front of a famous landmark or snapping a panorama of the sunset, the 20.1 megapixel sensor gets you the shot you want. That’s because it’s a 1.0-Type sensor, which is much bigger, so it’s better in low light and gives blurry background effects even in video. You also don’t have to lose quality when zooming in thanks to the 4.2x zoom. Don’t worry if you’re trying to capture something high speed either, because this camera can take 30 frames per second RAW Burst.

Made for social

The tilt-up screen, which is very handily touch-screen, means you can perfect those low angles shots and selfies, and makes it easier for you to see what you're filming, making your pictures and videos the best they can be. It’s not only the screen that makes this camera ideal for sprucing up your feeds. You can directly Live Stream to YouTube which means no more messing around with wires and time wasted endlessly prepping for a flawless Live Stream. This camera also shoots vertical vids, which is perfect for Insta story and Snapchat. The PowerShot G7 X Mark III also has Bluetooth®* and Wi-Fi which makes it easy for you to connect with your other devices, so you don’t have to wait to upload your favourite pics and videos to your social media accounts.
