PowerShot Cameras Coming for CES 2014 in January [CR1]
« on: November 21, 2013, 10:04:44 PM »

CES 2014 in Las Vegas

Canon will be announcing new PowerShot cameras for CES as per usual.


Two cameras we’re told could be coming are a PowerShot SX60 HS, Canon’s big zoom range compact. We’re told the camera will take a bit of a “new direction”, though we weren’t told what.¬†We’re also told that a redo of the PowerShot G1 X with an APS-C sensor could also be coming. Though the source says they haven’t heard much about the development for “some time now”.


I think it’s almost a guarantee we’ll see an SX50 HS replacement, I’m not sure the G1 X will get a direct replacement though.


CES could also be a good place for the new EOS M to make an appearance, but we can’t confirm that to be the case.


Remember too, that it’s the Consumer Electronics Show, we generally don’t see prosumer level gear getting announced.

I can't wait to see what kind of zoom levels the SX60 HS can manage, and hopefully with Dual Pixel AF fast enough to track birds (I know, I know, don't get your hopes up).

Well in all fairness there was barely any prosumer announcements this 2013 year!

good that there isn't a definite G1X replacement ... I just ordered one and is expected to arrive this Sunday or Monday, its not a nice feeling when I buy something and it gets replaced within a month  ;D

G1X with an APS-C sensor?  Hmmm....  Nice but could be too big to be one of the "G" series.  If compact enough like G1X, then count me in.  This can be a very good backup/fun camera if the on-sensor dual AF can be copied from 70D.  10 to 15MP should  be more than enough.  I like a 17/18-135 F3.5-5.6 lens though. 

On the other hand, why not the eos-M with a viewfinder and a built-in flash instead?  Both should be almost the same size.  G1X with APS-C sensor doesn't make sense really unless they can make the lens smaller and retractable just like the G series.    ::)

I'm hoping for a D20 replacement that competes (preferably exceeds) in ISO, FPS and IQ terms with the Olympus Tough TG-2 and the Panasonic DMS-FT5 for underwater point and shooters.

Please  :)

G1X... compact? I think our definitions must differ, I find it pretty bulky.

Likewise, I think that the other G-series are now too big for the level of performance that they offer; I never did like my G12. Hopefully a G1X successor will offer an EVF instead of the crappy tunnel viewfinder of the rest of the G-series.

Maybe they'll follow Sony's example with the RX10 and move to a larger sensor in the SX series, as I don't think that increasing the focal length of the lens is really achieving much.

The G series is still quite compact compared to some DSLRs...  For an APS-C sensor (as rumored) if they can maintain the size of the present G1X, this is still one of the smallest even among mirrorless aps-c.

A G1X successor would make sense if they kept the body size the same, fitted an EOS-M mount, an EVF and dual-pixel PDAF. Of course, that would require them to show commitment to EOS-M and release some more lenses, which they are not doing at the moment.
