(CW3) Canon’s Next Large Sensor Powershot Set to be Announced Next Week
As you probably know Canon is rumored to make a big announcement following Friday February 6. So, it comes to no wonder that we are getting a lot of rumors these days.
I have been told (thanks) that among the Powershot cameras Canon is supposed to announce before CP+ (i.e. next week), there is also the new large sensor Powershot camera that Canon themselves leaked in a few occasions.
The same source also said this camera will feature a Sony sensor, like the Powershot G7 X. No specs so far (anyone?). Since this Powershot is touted as having a big zoom range, I wonder what the figures are. All we know so far is what Canon Hong Kong wrote on their homepage some time ago:
New PowerShot Digital Compact Camera Under Development
Featuring large image sensor, high zoom capability and compact body
Canon is developing a new premium digital compact camera that combines the merits of both large image sensor and high-magnification optical zoom lens in response to the demands from users looking for high quality high zoom performance. Offering both convenience from a compact body and excellent super telephoto performance, this camera is perfect for everyday or travel shooting in high quality.
