Patent: A Couple of PowerShot Lens Patents
« on: September 28, 2016, 08:56:48 AM »
A few patents showing optical formula for lenses with 1″ sensors have come to light. We expect to see some PowerShot cameras announced ahead of CES 2017 in January.

We haven’t received word on which PowerShot cameras will see a replacement announced, but we think at least one “G” camera will see an update.

The patents are after the break.

For the 10-30, I bet on a G9X MKII (equiv. 28-82mm).
For the other one, equiv. 35-185mm, I don't know...

EDIT : the other one is 1,5" => equiv. 25 124mm powershhot G1X MKIII

GOOD!

G9X II is something I'd buy in a heartbeat if it stays true to form, i.e. thinner, not thicker than the mk i.  The G9x is such a great pocketable camera.

To achieve better paper spec, len wide end will not cover entire sensor, hope this mechanism will come to DSLR L Lens soon ;)
