Canon PowerShot G1 X Successor Coming Shortly [CR2]

Canon PowerShot G1 X Successor Coming Shortly [CR2]

The Canon PowerShot G1 X successor should appear some time in the next 2 weeks. We have heard it will be announced at CP+, however another source has said it will be announced the following week on the 18th of February.

Canon considers this segment a “top of the line” product and it will probably be priced as such. You can expect a smaller and lighter body, a big boost in image quality (sensor size is unknown at this time), DIGIC 6, along with the expected GPS and WiFi features. Availability is said to be in late April/early May.

PowerShot Cameras Coming for CES 2014 in January [CR1]

PowerShot Cameras Coming for CES 2014 in January [CR1]

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.

Quick & Dirty Review: Canon PowerShot G1 X

Quick & Dirty Review: Canon PowerShot G1 X

Review!
I have given my initial impressions of Canon’s new PowerShot G1 X in a quick review of the camera.

Spoiler alert…. I like it.

I have enjoyed my first day or so with the camera. I understand some of the critical points about the camera, others I don’t. I don’t understand why it’s knocked for being too big, I think the size is just about perfect.

I know lots of people wanted an APS-C “G” camera for $299. For those people, you’re going to have to wait a little while longer. I will say I don’t feel ripped off at $800, and I definitely wouldn’t when the camera gets down to the $650-$700 range.
