One of the compact cameras Canon is expected to announce in the next time is the replacement of the Powershot G16 (price & specs), supposedly named Powershot G17.
A rumor surfaced on the web stating that Canon will announce the Powershot G17 during May 2014. That means less than a year after the announcement of the Powershot G16. Unusual but not implausible.
A short specification list also came with the rumor. The Powershot G17 could have the following specs:
- A 24-200mm f/1.4-2.0 lens
- A new developed 1″ Sensor
- an all magnesium body with comfortable grip
- DIGIC 6 CPU
At least the f/1.4-2.0 lens is an exciting news.
