I have been told (thanks) that Canon will announce new gear on February 12th, one day before CP+ starts. One of the cameras that is going to be announced should be the successor of the Canon Powershot G1 X, the others should be DSLRs. The possible announcement of the G1 X replacement showed up also on other places.
No new specs of the PowerShot G1 X successor have been leaked so far, but we can expect something similar to the specs leaked some time go on the Chinese Xitek forum:
- Same design as the G1X, with a slightly longer lens
- DIGIC 6 Image Processor
- 24 – 120mm f/2.8-5.8 lens
- 20.2MP 1.5″ CMOS sensor
- New optical zoom viewfinder with better image quality
- 3.0″ LCD touch screen with 922,000 dots
Additionally [source: CR], it is now also rumored the G1 X successor could have WiFi and GPS. The camera should be available to the public at the end of April or beginning of May.
No word about the other gear that Canon might announce for CP+. Short time to wait, and then we will know.
