PowerShot Cameras / Re: A Powershot update by September?
« on: August 16, 2012, 07:56:13 PM »
Understandable, here is hoping Canon steps up its game in the S100 successor, otherwise the pocket camera of the year will be the RX100.


Yes you are right. I am thinking of the Sony  RX100.

Is there a noticeable difference in the RX100 compared to the S100 with regards to cost?

Thanks for the links.  I assume you are looking at the RX100?

You would think at this point Canon would get out the S100 given the recent lens error issues and for how long the G12 has been out now.  The competition is not sitting still and would think they wouldn't want to lose any other customers to the competition at this point.  The EOS M seems nice, but much prefer the S or G line.

Forgot when is was mentioned, but now I cannot find the rumor on here that mentioned the Powershot announcements with the small f/1.9 camera and G13 referenced.



Well, we have had two Powershot upgrades this month so I guess it would be too much to hope that there would be anymore announcements of anything other upgrades before September  :(
I guess if Canon have anything else up their sleeves they might wait now until Photokina 18th to the 23rd Sep.

after all surely they dont want to give away all their thunder after the EOS M and the two new Powershots?

"Canon G13
UPDATE: The latest rumours suggest that Canon will reveal a new Powershot G13 in August, before Photokina. It has also been suggested that the S100 will also be replaced or upgraded."
I hope they are right but it will be cutting it fine.
See aslo

I really dont want the EOS M it's a nice body but by the time you start adding lenses it's no longer a travel companion like the G11 and G12. I do hope I am not going to be pushed into getting the Sony before the G13 becomes available.
Cmon now Canon dont push me to the competition!  ;)

Is the S100 and G12 successors still expected to be announced by the end of the month?

:)
Mmmmm, I like the latest rumour, a new Powershot to replace the G12 by the end of August, I can hardly wait, I dare to say I am almost desperate to see it and would almost be tempted to pre order one even without seeing the specs should it become available just in time for my next trip to Japan.
I just hope it's not an announcement like with the EOS M, announced now but not available till October !

Agree, but I though the G12 and S100 successors were due to be announced later this month?

No thanks. I thought when a couple of new Powershots were going to be announced at least one would be the successor to the G12.    :-\

Agree, isn't the S100 successor expected to be announced later this month?


So hopefully any new S100+ or G12+ might have a Canon CMOS sensor?

Any release date associated with the Pro1X?

<strong>APS-C Compact Camera?<br />


</strong>We received a small comment that Canon will finally resurrect the “Pro” moniker for a PowerShot camera soon. The <a href=\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_PowerShot_Pro1\" target=\"_blank\">Canon PowerShot Pro1</a> was a very popular enthusiast compact camera that was launched in 2004.</p>
<p>The camera will apparently be called the Canon PowerShot Pro1X and will have the same 18mp sensor as the Canon EOS Rebel T4i/650D and EOS-M.</p>
<p>New source, grain of salt on this one.</p>

PowerShot / Re: Canon G1x or Sony RX100 for vacation and light duty
« on: August 13, 2012, 10:15:03 PM »
Two completely different cameras with different prices, performance, etc.

I have a Canon 5d Mk iii and am looking for a sidekick for quick outings and vacations. I have come to the Canon G1x but it's size is a little big or the Sony RX100 which looks promising. I want dslr like IQ and semi small package otherwise it's no better than a CSC. Anyone have any input would be greatly appreciated. I am leaning toward the Sony since it's actually pocketable and has a macro mode. I do like how the G1x has been said to have low end rebel quality and has a hot shoe. I am torn. Help.

Interesting, is the SX500 the replacement for the SX40?

Agree, here is hoping Canon uses the Pro1X as a G1X replacement.  The G1X still hasn't developed a following as Canon expected.

I want one and I want it now! ;D

however I have to agree with an earlier post:
'It would be weird to have both this camera and the G1X in the lineup at the same time'.
not to mention that it would be confusing to have a G1X and a Pro1X so close together in the lineup surely the X has been used too much lately and is getting a bit past it's prime?

PowerShot Cameras / Canon Powershot S105 (S100 replacement)
« on: August 04, 2012, 07:37:38 AM »
Is this the camera expected to be announced later this month with the f/1.9 lens?  After the G1X and now the S100 problems, Canon needs this one to be a hit.

That is not true.

  But the rest (including the S100) come from Sony.

PowerShot Cameras / S105 the Next RX100?
« on: August 03, 2012, 06:24:29 PM »
So is this "small camera with an f/1.9 lens" Canon's answer to the RX100?

Canon General / Re: Announcements in August [CR1]
« on: August 03, 2012, 09:24:18 AM »
Canon's definition of small typically would be the S100 size camera which is due for replacement the next couple of months.  Typically it is announced around this time.  Given all the changes in this class, going from a f/2.0 to a f/1.9 would make sense.

Nobody should be beating themselves up over a 16-35mm L purchase; dollars to donuts it's going to be like the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM and be both overly expensive and drive the price of the older model up briefly after announcement.

Is the "small camera with an f/1.9 lens." the S100 replacement?

I hope not, I just bought one :D 

Small is relative as well.  A g12 is small by some people's standards.

What I want to know is, why no new calculators Canon?  ;D
