The Evolution of the Powershot G
I received an email that Canon does indeed have an APS-C sized sensor “G” camera being tested/developed.

3x Zoom  (24-70 IS, no speed information)

ISO 100-3200
SD Card

We know a CMOS based G series camera with a larger sensor is coming. The source said we may not see this type of camera until Photokina 2010.

  1. Have you used the G10 viewfinder? It’s almost pointless. All the shooting info is around the LCD anyway. Oh, and it’s 2009.

  2. If it can deliver decent ISO 800 I will buy this camera. Poor mid-high ISO held me back on the G10.

    It doesn’t need interchangable lenses. It’s a compact! Though if it’s much larger than a G10 it will be called the Rebel mini.

  3. The problem is the lens. The compacts usually had 35 or 40 mm lenses with a modest maximum aperture, or normal zooms with a small aperture.

    24-70 viewing angle on APS-C would mean it has to have something like a 15-44 mm lens. It would be at least as large as the Olympus E-P1 kit zoom.

  4. I agree that the G10 VF is no match for a DSLR, but it does help composition in bright sunlight when LCD screens can become washed out. Hell’s teeth, I even use the VF on an Ixus at times.

  5. And if it is f/2.8, probably the size of a Leica M8 somehow coupled with a EF-S 17-55/2.8.
