g1x2 2Just the other day we reported on additional leaked photos of the upcoming Canon G1 X II. The camera is expected to be announced at CP+ which will be taking place later this week and is also expected to be the successor of the Canon G1 X. We’re not sure when exactly will Canon release the camera and put it up for sale, but presumably it could be pretty soon, thanks to a listing on Best Buy’s website. Unfortunately the listing has since been taken down, but we can only assume that someone over at Best Buy might have accidentally put it up a little earlier than expected, but at least we know that the device is for real.

Thanks to the listing, additional photos and specifications of the camera have been revealed, some of which contradicts what we had heard earlier. For example the camera is said to pack a 20.2MP sensor but according to the listing, the camera will instead feature a 13.1MP in the 4:3 format, or 12.8MP in the 3:2 format. It will come with a 1.5-inch CMOS sensor and will be able to shoot at 3fps with AF, or 5fps with focus locked. The accompanying lens will be a 24-120mm f/2.0-3.9 one and we will see Canon’s DIGIC 6 image processor under the hood as well. The G1 X II will also come with a 3-inch LCD touchscreen display that can be tilted, two control rings, WiFi and NFC connectivity, and will be priced at $799. No word on availability but hopefully we will learn more at CP+, so check back with us then for the details.
