PowerShot GX1 [CR1]

Replacement of the SX1 IS
Received an email saying Canon would be replacing the SX1 IS with a completely different camera. The camera would be modeled around the G11 and use a CMOS based sensor. The “GX1” would also shoot 1080p video with various frame rates. All other features would be on par with the G11.

No word on whether noise would take a step back or not.

The camera would be a niche market product and carry the appropriate price tag (a big one).

Announcement near the end of January or early February.

  1. Hej,
    Would be better to use the SX1 body with a smaller zoom than x20 and a bigger sensor than 1/1.7′.
    Now unless the CMOS sensor has really improved (over the one in the SX1), this would be very bad news.

  2. No information about 60D in last couple of weeks/months… seems like “60D project” is dead. Well… i am going to buy 50D next week :-(
