Convincing images of the Canon PowerShot G7 X III and PowerShot G5 X Mark II models have leaked, along with lists of specs for both cameras.

While neither model has been officially announced by Canon, the images, first seen on Japanese camera-leaking site Nokishita (opens in new tab), are either leaked press shots or very good Photoshop jobs by someone with plenty of time to spare.

Nokishita claims that the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III (pictured below), whose release has been the subject of speculation for some time, will arrive with a 20.1MP 1-inch back-illuminated sensor, DIGIC 8 processing, and a raw shooting mode that can capture images at 30fps, along with 4K video and 120fps recording to Full HD.

The site claims the G5 X Mark II will sport similar specs to the G7 X Mark III, albeit with a stacked 20.1MP 1-inch sensor and a 5x optical zoom that works between a 35mm-equivalent range of 24-120mm. The existing PowerShot G5 X already offers a 20MP 1-inch sensor, although this isn't claimed to have a stacked architecture. 

It also claims the model will capture 4K video recording and 120fps shooting in Full HD, which is more believable with the inclusion of the newer DIGIC 8 processor. The G5 X offers the previous DIGIC 6 engine, and video recording is capped at Full HD.

The design of the G5 X Mark II veers significantly away from the existing PowerShot G5 X. Instead of the G5 X's centrally-placed electronic viewfinder, which gives it an almost DSLR-like design, the viewfinder appears to be hidden hidden in the flat top plate when not in use – much like on Sony's RX100 Mark VI and previous models in the RX100 series.

Other specs across both models are said to include a 3.5mm mic input and both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. There's no word o n when the models will be announced or prices, but if it all turns out to be legit we'll have all the details right here.
