A New Large Sensor PowerShot Coming [CR1]
« on: May 08, 2013, 01:50:05 PM »

Not a G2X

We’re told that a rethink of a large sensor PowerShot is coming in 2013. It won’t be a G2X and will be designed more like a larger PowerShot S110. It will have a fast short zoom lens and the new 18mp APS-C sensor along with a DIGIC 6 processor. It won’t have an OVF or EVF and will be priced less than the G1X was.


We’re told it will be a late summer announcement along with the regular updates to the PowerShot lineup.

Canon needs it. I have the SL1 right now and it is actually smaller than I thought with pretty good quality. Paired it up with the 40mm f/2.8 pancake and it works nicely. However, I still long for that Fuji X100s. It just looks unbelievable. Take a look at those High ISO files too, Amazing. You can download the RAW files from the review at: http://learningcameras.com/reviews/9-other/137-fuji-x100s-review

Canon should be able to do this if they wanted to although I'm wishing for a viewfinder. Big help on the Fuji so I'd like it there unless it means a way bigger camera.

I like the fuji. I think the biggest advantage for Canon will be with interchangeable lenses because so many people already have Canon lenses. This is not as big for Fuji because most people would have to buy new lenses. I think the M has a bigger chance of making it big if Canon devotes more time & energy into making it the best and prices it less than usual.

Why change the form factor? The s110 is finicky. They should keep the nice big dials and buttons even if the body needs to be a little larger

Same old 18GB sensor?  They are putting this in everything. EOS, M-series, new powershot, smallest SLR, Ti whatever. Same old sensor just with different packaging. not interested

A great M would be a real winner with those of us who have EOS lenses

Fast AF and OVF would do it for me!

Hope its AF speed is on par with Sony Rx-100 or the Panasonic LX 7. Fixed lens is fine with me. That will make it lighter and  smaller. just give us the FAST AF.

Ironically, a larger sensor (APS-C) in the G-X type body would be awesome.

Well it's certainly not going to have interchangeable lenses (that would be the M series). This is their answer to the Sony large sensor compact. I'd buy one in a second probably, assuming it's got some AF speed like the S100.

CR1 so eh ... but it would fit their lineup pretty well. Of course Canon seems a little stretched right now with all their cameras but what do I know.

Excellent. Now I can have an inexpensive backup camera that produces good results, instead of using my crappy old Powershot A590 IS...... Looks like canon is doing something right for once. I hope they'll keep up the good work with the 70D.

I hope they are not referring to the "new sensor" from the SL1.
