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

Canon's answer to the Nikon 1?

Like I said, it looks like this will have interchangeable lenses  ;D ;D ;D

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.

Some more views please. Interested to see what sensor canon will put inside this premium compact.

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).

Phil.

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.

I believe it says 'M1 X' 8)

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.

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!)
Welcome to CR ... and a good point ... it'd be nice if it also works with the EOS-M

It looks like the external EVF goes where an external flash would also go. Unfortunately, I have an external flash on my G10 almost all the time.

A faked Canon PowerShot G1 X II Image
« Reply #39 on: February 08, 2014, 09:36:17 AM »
Open the image in PS, lighten the shadows and all kinds of oddities show up around the lens, such as a zoom ring that stops and fades into the grip

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 ;-)

I've a rollover image showing the issues at:
http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/cameras/mirrorless.html

Not that I wouldn't welcome a decent (big) EVF for an EOS-M one day...

Thanks for pointing that out. Even if it is a fake it's still fun to debate because it shows what people would really like to see in this type of camera. I for one would be very excited if this proved to be real, save the EVF.

$700 with, or without the EVF?
Expensive no matter with or without (especially without).

I would consider SL1/100D with a decent EF-S zoom instead...

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
