If you liked what you saw in the Canon G1 X, chances are you might anticipating its successor, the rumored Canon G1 X Mark II which will presumably come with upgraded specs, making the camera more powerful than ever. Well for those wondering when the camera will be announced, word on the street has it that Canon is expected to unveil the G1 X Mark II come 12th February which is a day earlier than CP+ is held, or it could be due to the time difference that the 12th of February in the US would be the 13th of February in Japan where the event will be held, but either way we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more info.
Based on what we know about the camera so far, at least based on rumored specs, the G1 X Mark II is expected to share somewhat similar features to the G1 X, with the main difference being its lens. The lens of the G1 X Mark II is rumored to be slightly longer at 24-120mm and will sport an aperture of f/2.8-5.8. The camera will also come with a 20.2MP 1.5-inch CMOS sensor, a “real image” optical zoom viewfinder, and a 3-inch LCD touchscreen display. Pricing of the camera has not been revealed either but we can only assume that Canon will probably price it close to that of the Canon G1 X. We expect that details such as availability will also be unveiled on the 12th of February, so do check back with us then for the details.
