Not a G2X
We’re told that a rethink of a large sensor PowerShot is coming in 2013. It won’t be a G2X and will be designed more like a larger PowerShot S110. It will have a fast short zoom lens and the new 18mp APS-C sensor along with a DIGIC 6 processor. It won’t have an OVF or EVF and will be priced less than the G1X was.
We’re told it will be a late summer announcement along with the regular updates to the PowerShot lineup.
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., September 17, 2012 – Designed for photographers of all levels, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announces the addition of three feature-packed digital cameras – the PowerShot G15, PowerShot S110, and PowerShot SX50 HS digital cameras – providing advanced features, greater focusing speed and multiple-shot speed in sophisticated, compact camera bodies. All three models include advancements in auto focus (AF) technology for high-speed responsive AF systems that capture the moment as it happens, with significantly reduced lag timeii. Both the PowerShot G15 and PowerShot S110 models include a newly designed 12.1-megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS image sensor for exceptional light gathering and image quality. In addition to improvements to focusing speed and shooting speeds over their predecessors, each camera offers unique high-end features, such as an f/1.8-2.8 5x optical zoom lens on the PowerShot G15. The PowerShot S110 includes Wi-Fi connectivity for the ultimate in image quality and on-the-spot sharing, while the PowerShot SX50 HS boasts the world’s first 50x optical zoom in a digital camera to date.
Canon will be announcing their Photokina products on September 17, 2012. We’ll be around to cover the new gear that will get announced.
