Canon PowerShot SX 60 IS 100x Zoom Mentioned Again [CR1]

We continue to receive little bits of information about the upcoming Canon PowerShot SX60 IS. We should be seeing this highly popular superzoom some time in the spring.

The latest we’ve heard is the camera will have a 100x zoom and will have a focal length range of 20-2000mm. This goes along with what most sources have previously said. I’d get one just for the fun of 2000mm!

Canon to Leave the Entry Level Point & Shoot Market?

Canon to Leave the Entry Level Point & Shoot Market?

There are couple of reports today saying that Canon plans to leave the sub $200 compact point and shoot market. The segment has been decimated by smartphones over the last 3-5 years and sales are no where near what they were.

The move makes a lot of sense, Canon would be better suited putting development dollars into DSLRs, lenses, advanced compacts and the Cinema EOS lines.

MELVILLE, N.Y., February 11, 2014 – Building upon the success of the PowerShot G1 X digital camera, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today unveiled its new flagship PowerShot G1 X Mark II, a digital camera designed to meet the evolving needs of today’s professional and advanced amateur photographers.

Boasting a sensor that is 4.5x larger than a 1/1.7” sensor found in professional level point-and-shoot cameras, the PowerShot G1 X Mark II camera can produce high-quality images with a wide dynamic range. It features a new type of 1.5-inch, 12.8 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor, made by Canon, allowing for optimum performance with an ISO range of 100-12800. This sensor, combined with the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, comprises the Canon HS SYSTEM resulting in faster autofocusing speeds over the PowerShot G1 X camera, allowing photographers to capture detailed, vivid images even in low-light conditions.
