*UPDATE* Canon PowerShot G1 X II Image
« 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)



  • Slimmer body, lighter weight

  • External EVF

  • 24-120 f/2-3.9 Lens.

  • DIGIC 6

  • Around $700 USD


Is the above image a fake?

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.

Very interesting, that silver ring near the body strangely looks like a metal lens mount...

Canon's answer to the Nikon 1?

 I wonder if the electronic viewfinder will work with the eos m? 

(p.s. - I finally signed up after at least a year of lurking!)

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.

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/) doesn't quite work out, huh?  ;D

Is this a small but sure step towards the world of EVF?
