Canon PowerShot G16 And PowerShot S120 Set To Be Replaced In October? [CW3]

A new rumor suggests the Canon PowerShot G16 and PowerShot S120 are ready to get replaced. And it may happen soon, in October 2015.

Unfortunately we do not have either the new model names nor a single spec. The rumor suggests the Powershot G16 might feature an electronic viewfinder. The Powershot G16 and S120 were announced in 2013.

That’s all, stay tuned…
