However, the latest news is that the G7 X Mark IV will be launched in 2022. Although the new machine will continue to use the 1-inch 20.1 million-pixel back-illuminated stacked CMOS sensor, it will be upgraded to use the DIGIC X image processor with stronger processing power ( Like the EOS R3 and EOS R5), the G7 X Mark IV is expected to retain the G7 X Mark III’s highest ISO 25600 sensitivity, 30fps ultra-high-speed continuous shooting and 1080p 120 high frame rate full HD video, and will join 4K 60p ultra HD Video Specifications. As for the focus, it will be upgraded to use Canon’s proud new generation full-pixel dual-core CMOS AF autofocus technology. It can be speculated that the G7 X Mark IV’s focus tracking continuous shooting performance will be greatly improved than the G7 X Mark III’s 8.3fps.
