All the rest

There are a handful of other features that have been either added or improved on both the G7 X III and G5 X II. These include a new focus bracketing mode, improved panoramic shots, and supposedly, simpler Wi-Fi + Bluetooth connectivity that includes GPS syncing and auto-transfer of images.

You can record HDR movies for playback on compatible displays, there's a new maximum shutter speed of 1/25600 sec with the electronic shutter, an a special new Star mode that includes 4K star time-lapse movies is also available. Lastly, the user interface is said to be very similar to that of the company's EOS lineup of interchangeable lens cameras.

In all, while we have to wait to get our hands on review samples to make any concrete judgments, it looks like Canon's shoehorned an impressive amount of refinements and updates into two cameras whose predecessors we found to be solid offerings.

But what do you think? Are these updates enough to tempt you to pick up one of these compacts for yourself? Let us know in the comments.
