Live YouTube streaming (and external power)

The older G7 X Mark II has long been a favorite of vloggers, and so with the new G7 X Mark III, Canon's upped the ante with the ability to stream YouTube Live straight from the camera. Using YouTube's tools, you can choose to schedule those videos instead of publishing straight away depending on your preference. Note - this is only a G7 X Mark III feature.

In case you're wondering just how much stamina the diminutive NB-13L battery pack has for the likes of live-streaming high-resolution video over Wi-Fi, Canon's made the G7 X III able to be powered over USB, not just charged. This will be particularly useful for those with small hand-held gimbals and stabilizers that can supply power to the camera being used. And unlike the YouTube streaming, Canon's brought USB power to both the G7 X III and G5 X II models.

If you aren't using external power for either the G7 X III or G5 X II, battery life is rated at 235 or 230 shots per charge (CIPA), respectively. This is definitely on the short side, but enabling 'Eco mode' will raise that number to around 320 shots per charge, according to Canon.
