Title: *UPDATE* Canon PowerShot G1 X II Image
Post by: Canon Rumors on February 07, 2014, 04:13:54 PM

*UPDATE*

Is the below image a fake?


Northlight Images thinks so. I tend to agree as well, there is something off about the image.



Below is an image of the upcoming replacement to the PowerShot G1 X. The optical viewfinder has been removed in favor of an external electronic viewfinder.


Specifications (Not definitive)



Is the above image a fake?

Is the above image a fake? (watermark removed for examination)


More to come.

Quite interesting, would be interested to see the full specs of this. The EVF looks to be detachable.

I have been looking for a smaller travel cam that is (almost) pocketable. The EOS M is interesting, but gets quite bulky if you add anything else than the EF-M 22mm. The Fuji X-E2 also has my attention, but its quite expensive and I not convinced about some of the lenses for that system.

To me it looks like a built in pop up flash, much like the S120. On the right of the EVF there's a rectangular cut out, and below on the side there's a flash logo - that looks like it's next to a physical release switch to make the flash pop up. No more messing about with multiple button presses and looking at the screen to get the flash to work

No wheel above the grip, this looks like the S200 (where en optional EVF makes sense), not at all like a G1 X successor.

Post by: philmoz on February 07, 2014, 05:19:01 PM
If the image is accurate it also appears to be missing:
- Exposure compensation dial (under the mode dial on the G1X)
- Front control wheel (under the shutter / zoom on the G1X)

Both of these changes seem strange for a 'G' series camera.

EVF isn't a deal breaker, it's the fact that it looks like it's an optional extra on top of the steep price tab that breaks the deal for me.

This looks like Canon is trying to make it look like a mirrorless camera, rather than the rangefinder style of the current model, which I own and really like.

If the lens is as good as the current model's, then it should be a good thing, especially if they are using a similar sensor to the 70D with the dual pixel focussing.

So, Canon's patent for small optical viewfinder (see http://thenewcamera.com/canon-patent-small-optical-viewfinder-with-100-coverage/ (http://thenewcamera.com/canon-patent-small-optical-viewfinder-with-100-coverage/)) doesn't quite work out, huh?  ;D

Layout looks more like an S1xx series camera than a G1X successor. If it is a G1X successor, then the compensation dial is gone and adjustments are done via the universal dial in the rear. That would be strange.

The G1X has that bumpy section on the lens; but it is for grip, not a control wheel.

Having two such sections, with one close to the camera, is different - so perhaps there is a control wheel.

The current model is mirrorless as are all Canon P&S cameras.  They just do not have interchangeable lenses.  A rangefinder camera is something totally different.

I have to agree. I wonder if, perhaps, this is the S200, which also happens to be the G1X replacement? OR, this is the S200, which is to the G2X what the S1xx series is to the Gxx series? If the latter, perhaps this marks the end of the 1/1.7 sensor line in favor of APS-C?

The S200 seems confusing as wasn't that model name introduced last year along the S120, but not for the US.

Title: Re: Canon PowerShot G1 X II Image
Post by: faintfigure on February 07, 2014, 10:21:10 PM
I'm caring about the CMOS sensor ratio factor, hoping it will be 3:2, no more 4:3. PS: G1X is 4:3, however Sony RX100/RX100 M2 is 3:2. Yeah for the sensor size, the former is 1.5", it's much better than the latter, 1".
Title: Re: Canon PowerShot G1 X II Image
Post by: arvi on February 08, 2014, 12:59:56 AM
Now if the top dials are gone, is it possible that Canon's engineers placed it around the lens barrel as a second control ring? And while you're looking through the EVF, you can zoom in and out, and control exposure and see the result immediately thru the EVF? Add eye-control focus like in the old A2E and that could make for some awesomely speedy composing. But I'm just dreaming now. :D

External EVF

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Both Panasonic and Olympus tried that ... and both realised that it doesn't sell very well ... people prefer the EVF built into the camera.

If this part of the rumour is true, then it shows that Canon is playing copy-cat catch-up ... and not thinking for themselves. Well, what else is news?

Unlikely (although it would be nice).

On G series cameras the outer shell around the lens housing can be removed in order to attach accessories such as the macro light adapter. This will probably just be the same as previous G cameras; although it does look like the color of the trim has changed.

I'll play :)

While the CDAF & dual pixel technology from the 70D would be nice, I think Canon are too conservative to do this yet (although I really hope I'm wrong).

My guess is the sensor will remain the same as the G1X - 1.5" 14MP.

(AF will be better due to the faster processor - in the same way the G16 improved on the G15. Not from addition of the 70D sensor technology).

So what does it actually say on the top of the body? Can anybody make out 'G2 X' or something else? I did a little dodge/burn/noise reduction and contrast enhancement (please if somebody is better at this, give it a go yourself). Compare to 'PowerShot G1 X' logo.

There's a lot that's very carefully excluded from this image, either by the framing (which hides any possible lens release), or in the case of the writing on the pop up flash, selective blurring.

However, what is clear from the photo is this does share a very close family resemblance of the S series rather than the G series. Both in terms of styling and controls. That makes at least one of those rings around the lens likely to be a control wheel. Like the S series, there is a zoom rocker around the shutter button - this makes the likelihood of it being an interchangeable lens camera very small.

The lens looks far too big for a 5x zoom on a small sensor, so hopefully it's G1X size minimum, or even full APS-C size. Will they put the 70D sensor straight into an S series body?

One thing that is hinted at in the photo which I've just seen is a tilting screen. It's not just sticking out proud at the back, but its at an angle.

With an electronic camera-body interface anything is possible. My Sony E PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS for instance has both a multifunction control ring AND a zoom rocker switch that goes wide to tele. That switch could easily be made to go on the camera body.

The external EVF is really ugly and makes the camera far less comfortable to store and use. Can't understand why Canon can't deliver a mixed internal OVF/EVF like the Fuji one. I was looking for a smaller camera to complement my 5D, but it looks nor the M nor the GX fits my needs. Guess I'll get the Fuji.

Why has this been debated so long without anyone looking at the actual photo, or has the huge EVF done its job and distracted everyone's attention ;-)

Wait for a few months and the price will be around $500 ... I bought the Canon G1X + EF-M 18-55 IS STM + Sunpack RD2000 flash for $500 (so the G1X actually cost me around $300 or less), but when the G1X was launched I believe it had a price tag of $799

I would suspect not. The camera would require the appropriate firmware to recognize the EVF device when attached to the hotshoe, and would need firmware to ship the video signal from the sensor to the EVF. At the very least, a firmware update would be necessary to make it compatible with the EOS-M.

Oooooooooh, I do love a good conspiracy theory!!

Seriously, I'm anxious for Wednesday. My hope is that Canon will correct the serious drawbacks of the G1X that made it almost Frankensteinish and almost laughable for the money. As I've said before I went into the local Best Buy in summer 2012 (intro year for the camera) and the people in the camera department had never heard of it. No idea what it was or that it even existed.

Losing the OVF is the first thing that needs to happen. As many have said, the lens needs to be much faster. For the money, f/2.8 for the tele's first few mm doesn't cut it, and f/5.8 on the long end is amateur stuff. Also, the problem with MFD has to be corrected -- a lot of folks would find this a great camera for macro if you could get close with the right DOF.

While I'm not a video person I did see a video shot with a G1X, and it desperately needs an external mic input. The built-in microphone is adequate, I suppose, but recording inside with office type acoustics sounds tinny and really detracts.

The current G1X is also too big to be competitive. No surprise the rumor says it will be smaller. Unfortunately, smaller will also probably compromise battery capacity. And given that it will likely use the touch-screen, demands on the battery will increase.

I'm guessing the touch-screen will also be used to replace the exposure-comp dial; that would be a welcome clean up to me. And while they're cleaning up, the silly wheel up front can go -- either that or make it fully functional.

AF apparently also needs to get faster; maybe what Canon learned in speeding up the EOS M AF can be applied here.

While I'm probably dreaming I will also hope for better placement of the shutter button -- something closer to DSLR ergonomics than P&S.

Well, all will be revealed on Wednesday (to member old AND new!).

Not if Canon follow the nomenclature they have followed for many years if they really do consider the G1X a pro tool, which they have always said they do.
That's quite a ...  pro tool  ;D

The G10 was used by a lot of pros. But here is what Canon say about the G1X
Quote
The Pinnacle of PowerShot.
Bright, fast and more creative than ever: advanced technologies come together for an exciting new camera that moves beyond anything the G-Series has seen before. The PowerShot G1 X digital camera will inspire advanced amateurs who have embraced the G-Series to explore new realms of photographic expression, and give pros an excellent camera that complements their creative demands.

Just pointing out that whilst G2X makes some sense, so does G1X II, it isn't like we haven't had a 5D MkII, and MkIII, and a 1D MkI, and MkII, and MkIII and MkIV is it?

Yes, but I do not think there is a comparison. We had all the G cameras with increasing numbers after all. Anyway the naming scheme is not important, they can make it whatever they want as far as the new specifications satisfy...

I wish Northlight Images had a comment section so we could trash the idiot that questioned the legitimacy of that leaked image. Guy even went so far as to criticize the sites that "rushed to accepting it" including this one.

For what it is worth, this image appears not to have been a fake after all

Here is the same official canon image
http://www.canon.co.uk/Images/PowerShot (http://www.canon.co.uk/Images/PowerShot) G1 X Mark II BEAUTY ACC EVF_tcm14-1123568.jpg?width=600&height=400

The one that started this thread might be low quality, but it seems to me it is the same shot - identical perspective, features etc.

Who said such a thing? Dreaming? Is it so hard to think that since there were G1, G2, G3, etc cameras they could very well be G1X, G2X, G3X, etc... Sorry if I didn't express the obvious thought even more clearly...
