Canon Powershot G1X

There’s no doubt that this year’s International CES will host a treasure trove of new goodies, and many companies have already begun to announce at least some of their offerings—some inadvertantly. Over the last day, Wells Fargo accidentally let loose a whole slew of press releases for upcoming cameras, including Canon’s new Powershot G1X ($799). When it’s released in February, we expect this compact but powerful prosumer unit to make some big waves. 


G1X is a high-end point and shoot designed to rival many of the mirrorless options out there. It packs an impressive 1/1.5”, 14.3-megapixel sensor that captures significantly more light than most compact cameras. The 4X lens’s maximum aperture is f/2.5, and features a 28-112mm equivalent range, though it’s non-removable. Of course, the camera supports full 1080p digital video, and also now shoots in 14-bit RAW. Expensive but designed specifically to appeal to users who are willing to spend extra dollars to get superior depth of field in low-light conditions, it has a DIGIC 5 processor inside for speedy image processing, face tracking, and more. Start saving up those pennies for the launch next month.
