Import Canon PowerShot G7 X 1080P MP4 to Final Cut Pro
The Canon PowerShot G7 X is the first pocketable compact with a 1-inch sensor not to bear the Sony brand name. The G7 X isn’t quite good enough to oust the RX100 III from its perch as our favorite premium compact, but it’s an attractive alternative for shooters who prefer a longer zoom range over an integrated EVF. With 1080p video recording capability up to 60 fps, it’s fantastic to record incredible Full HD videos with such a tiny camera.
