More Tidbits About What Canon Might Announce In The Next Days

This could be the upcoming Powershot G1 X II (but it possibly is a fake)

There has been some anticipation about what Canon is going to announce on Wednesday, February 12th, ready for CP+ (see list below). Now, some more information leaked, and there are interesting things that may come in the next days. Btw, the image above (showing the G1 X II) may be a fake (and most probably is).

In addition to the previously rumored stuff, these gear may be announced:

  • EVF-DC1 (External Viewfinder)
  • WP-DC53 (Water Proof Housing)
  • PowerShot D30
  • PowerShot SX700 HS

More gear to expect (previously leaked):

  • new DSLR below the Rebel SL1
  • PowerShot G1 X II
  • Canon PowerShot S200
  • Canon PowerShot SX280 IS, a new super-zoom compact camera
  • Possibly more PowerShot cameras

I am particularly thrilled by the electronic view-finder. It would be great if this EVF was not only meant for the G1 X II. In other words: will this EVF also work on the Canon EOS M and EOS M2?

Stay tuned.

Canon Powershot G1 X II Picture Leaked (Update: Image Faked?)

Powershot G1 X II

Update: is the image of the G1 X II faked? That’s what Northlight Images states after having examined the picture. The say the end of the zoom ring is too abrupt. Moreover, the camera body appears to less sharp than the lens. See the (edited) pic below. What do you think, fake or real?

Canon Rumors spotted the first leaked picture of the Canon Powershot G1 X II, the replacement for the PowerShot G1 X. As you can see the G1 X II has an EVF instead of an optical view-finder. The preliminary specs are:

  • Slimmer body, lighter weight
  • External EVF
  • 24-120 f/2-3.9 Lens.
  • DIGIC 6
  • Around $700 USD
