Rumored specs for a replacement to the PowerShot G1 X have surfaced on the Xitek forums. The camera will “probably” be announced for CP+ next month in Tokyo. If true, it looks like Canon isn’t straying too far from the original G1 X. Pricing will probably be the biggest thing in this cameras success. It can’t be anywhere near the original $700 price tag.
- 20.2MP 1.5″ CMOS sensor
- 3 inch LCD touch screen
- Similar size and design to the G1 X
- DIGIC 6
- 24-120mm f/2.8-5.8
- New “real image” optical viewfinder.

Replacement to 60D?
We’ve been hearing over the last few days about an announcement coming at the end of March, the exact date is unknown at this time. If I were a betting man, I’d say it’ll be the 19th or 26th of March, 2013.
We’ll see a new DSLR, most likely the replacement for the EOS 60D.
There’s no spec list to speak of yet, but we’re quite confident that the 70D will be a big step up from the 60D in terms of specs. We expect it to return to the level that the EOS 50D was at, especially in the build quality area. No more “super Rebel” for the XXD line. This will then push the 7D Mark II to a higher level as well.
No mention of lenses being announced, though we’ll probably see a few new PowerShots. At this time, no mention of a G1 X replacement.
