Canon Rumor: A Large Sensor PowerShot Camera Coming In 2013

Canon Rumor

A new, interesting rumor came up. Canon may be working on a compact camera with a large sensor. Not a successor of the PowerShot G1 X (price & specs), but a camera like the PowerShot S110 (price & specs), just a bit a larger. The camera should have a fast lens and the new APS-C 18MP sensor featured on the Rebel Sl1/EOS 100D (price & specs), and the DIGIC 6 Image Processing Unit. No viewfinder. Pricing should be less than the PowerShot G1 X when it was released. We expect Canon to announce this camera at the end of SUmmer 2013.

(In AUTO, SCN, or Movie mode, the default function for the control ring is to control the step zoom.)

* Please note that this phenomenon does not always occur with every affected product.

2. Changes the camera's specification in accordance with the specification of iOS 5/6 so that the Wi-Fi connection between the camera and an iOS device will not disconnect after one minute, when the PowerShot S110 is set as an Access Point and an iOS device is connected to that Access Point.

Canon PowerShot S110 Review (best bet for enthusiast photographers)

Canon PowerShot S110 core specs:

  • 12.1MP Resolution 1/1.7″ CMOS Sensor
  • 24-120mm UA Lens (35mm Equivalent)
  • 5x Optical Zoom, f/2.0-5.9 Aperture
  • 3.0″ PureColor Touch Screen LCD Display
  • HS SYSTEM Technology, High Speed AF
  • DIGIC 5 Image Processor, Intelligent IS
  • Full HD 1080p Video with Stereo Sound
  • High-Speed Burst HQ, Manual Control Ring
  • ISO 12800, Multi-Aspect Ratio RAW
  • Smart AUTO, Movie Digest & Wi-Fi

Cameralab’s review of the PowerShot S110 (price & specs), successor of the highly popular PowerShot S100 (price & specs). Foremost: while the S100 had built-in GPS, the S110 comes with built-in WiFi connectivity, and no more GPS. I can’t say if Canon did this for commercial reasons or because of engineering issues. It is not a big issue since you can always geo-tag your pics by connecting to your smart-phone. The other big difference to its successor is the introduction of a touch-screen 3″ display, a welcome addition for all those who are used to smart-phones and similar devices. If the touch interface is as smart and well workingas on the Canon EOS M (price & specs) then Canon did it right. In the same way as on the EOS M, the touch-screen can be used for focusing and subsequent shutter release.

In the conclusion they write:

[...] the PowerShot S110 remains the smallest camera with advanced features like a bright lens, RAW files and manual controls, and the only one with a built-in motorised lens cap. The competition from Panasonic and Olympus meanwhile continues to travel in a different direction, offering brighter lenses, hotshoes and accessory ports, but in a less compact form factor with lens caps. Sony’s RX100 comes closest physically and packs in a bigger sensor too, but again lacks the motorised lens cover and some of the S110′s other features. While you may think having a manual lens cap isn’t a big deal, it does make a camera larger and delays the time to first shot; certanly when shooting with the S110 alongside any of the aforementioned rivals, it’s been noticeably quicker to action and that can mean the difference between capturing or missing a brief opportunity, and that’s worth taking into consideration.

[...] the PowerShot S110 remains the best bet for enthusiast photographers seeking the rare combination of advanced control in a truly compact connected camera. Had Canon made a better job of the connectivity features it would have been Highly Recommended, as it is the PowerShot S110 comes Recommended; if you value genuine take-anywhere portability over the bright lens, hot shoe and accessory optons of larger models it’s hard to beat.

Comprehensive review with sample pictures, noise comparison, and image quality tests.

Canon PowerShot G15 vs G12 vs S110 Comparison (and some reviews)

Canon PowerShot G15 vs G12 vs S110 Comparison

Image credit: Ron Martinsen

Ron Martinsen compares three Canon Powershot cameras: PowerShot G15 ($499) vs Powershot G12 ($379) vs PowerShot S110 ($449). The last one features built-in WiFi. Some excerpts from Martinsen’s review:

  • Functionality-wise [he] found the G12 and G15 to be mostly the same with the biggest feature difference being the Full HD (1920×1080) support added to the G15 and the max ISO jumping from 3200 to 12,800
  • The big WOW feature of the s110 has to be its touch screen which really helps it to overcome its lack of buttons.
  • The addition of integrated Wi-Fi support on s110 was pretty exciting when I first started to review it. Once setup [...] it became even more obvious how this is so much more than Eye-Fi. What you end up with is a device on your network that you can pair with your phone, printer, computer and more for an integrated wireless experience

From the conclusion:

[...] For starters, the s110 is much improved over the s95 that I reviewed back when the G12 came out. The touch screen helps it to overcome some of my past gripes, and the Wi-Fi support plus big rear display really up its value beyond just being compact. As a result, I feel a lot more comfortable recommending the s110 as a nice pocketable point and shoot.

The G15 on the other hand has made good progress getting smaller, but I honestly think it’s lost some of the things that made the G12 so great in the process. While it is smaller and lighter, I still don’t think people will consider it any more pocketable (and truth be told if you can fit a G15 in your pocket, you most likely can a G12 too – both fit in my back jeans pocket). It’s also disappointing to not see some of the s110’s features on the G15 which make it feel a bit dated by comparison.

There are also sample pics shot which each camera. More links for you to check:

  • Photographyblog has another batch of PowerShot G15 sample shots (studio shots inclusive) to check.
  • c|net has a PowerShot S110 review, they write: Nice photo quality, improved autofocus performance, and a very compact design make the Canon PowerShot S110 a solid option if you’re looking for something between a point-and-shoot and an enthusiast compact.
