so if they would fit a sony 1" sensor in a canon camera and offer it for a decent price i would buy it immediately.
Yes, this my first suspicion. And if that would happen, I would get it too. Canon color scheme and ergonomics, and Sony sensor, yes please.

I've been quite tempted by the RX100 series, the menus and controls are typical Sony. I used a PowerShot S95/100, switched to the EOS M for better IQ but I miss true pocket-ability sometimes.

Re: New Large Sensor PowerShot Rumor [CR2]

What is the diagonal size of crop and ff sensor? Is 1" refer to diagonal size. Based on 1" sensor measurement, diagonal size is 15 mm not 25 mm.

<p>We’re told by a very good source that Canon will announce a new PowerShot camera with a 1″ sensor. The camera will be nearly as compact as the S series camera and is intended to compete with Sony’s RX100.</p>
<p>No specs were given.</p>

As important to me as specs are...what matters more is the responsiveness of this rumored large-sensor PowerShot.

My first DSLR was a Rebel XT (it still works and is itself quite small). Put the responsiveness of this...what...ten year old body...into a truly pocketable mirrorless?

I'm there.

It this is true and if it comes with a decent lens at a decent price point I would be very tempted to get one.
I am looking for a new compact for a long time but never was pleased enough to pull the trigger.

If it only had an OVF, but that seems to be impossible at PowerShot S size...

50:50 chance the rumor is wrong and it´s a 2/3 inch sensor.

I think, this is always true with rumors.
It's just the difference between a rumor and a press release...

But it's also true that people like speculating on a rumors forum, isn't it?
