In 2012, Canon unveiled a new camera called the Canon G1 X. That was a little over 2 years ago which means that it’s about time that Canon show us something new! According to the rumors, that camera is rumored to be the Canon G1 X Mark II and will be the successor to the original G1 X. Canon has yet to make any announcements yet but the rumors claim that CP+ could be when the company might reveal the camera (and hopefully more). For those wondering about the specifications of the upcoming camera, like we said Canon has yet to make anything official, so here are its rumored specs which you should take with a grain of salt for now.
The design of the G1 X Mark II is said to be similar to the original G1 X but with sport a slightly longer 24-120mm f/2.8-5.8 lens. It will also pack a 20.2MP 1.5” CMOS sensor, a “real image” optical zoom viewfinder, and a 3” LCD touchscreen display. No word on pricing either but we can only assume it will not deviate too far from the G1 X’s mark. Canon’s G series of cameras have typically hovered between the casual photographer and the hobbyist, packing some pretty decent specs into a small-ish body that can be easily carried around, but with mirrorless cameras starting to make their mark, will such cameras prevail? CP+ will be held in the middle of February so if you’d like to learn more, check back with us then for the details.
