Canon Announces PowerShot G1 X Camera

The latest offering in Canon‘s prosumer PowerShot G series is the new G1 X. Announced today—the first official day of CES—the G1 X features a 1.5-inch 14.3-megapixel CMOS sensor (compared to the G12‘s 1/1.7-inch 10MP CCD sensor) as well as Canon’s DIGIC 5 image processor. It also boasts an ISO range of up to 12800 for low-light capture and an f/2.8-f/16 4x optical zoom lens. With a price tag of $800, the G1 X costs as much, if not more, than an entry-level Canon DSLR, which might turn off those photographers who are shopping around for a next level camera to step up their image quality and feature set from a compact point-and-shoot, especially if they’re looking to get into a system with interchangeable lenses. However, the Canon G series has for more than a decade now been a favorite everywhere camera for professional and enthusiast shutterbugs when they need to reach for a more portable option that will still make great images.

The Canon G1 X will be available for $799.99 in February.

Canon Announces Three New PowerShot Digital Cameras

Canon has just announced three new PowerShot digital cameras: the PowerShot SX150 IS, the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS (which Canon says is “the world’s thinnest digital camera with 12x optical zoom and a 28mm wide-angle lens”) and the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS. With these petite digicams, Canon is boasting about the zoom, the low-light capabilities and the high speed burst shooting mode. The 510 HS and 310 HS also record full (1080p) High Definition video, and the SX150 IS features 720p HD video. To combat noise in low-light shots, Canon has introduced the “HS SYSTEM,” which “combines a 12.1-megapixel, high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 Image Processor to enhance image quality in low-light settings. The HS SYSTEM also reduces noise at high ISO speeds and expands the camera’s dynamic range to allow for greater detail and color when shooting in darker settings” in the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS and ELPH 310 HS.

The PowerShot SX150 IS will be available at the beginning of September for an estimated $249.99. The PowerShot ELPH 510 HS will be available at the beginning of October for an estimated $349.99. The PowerShot ELPH 310 HS will be available at the beginning of October for an estimated $259.99. Read the full press release below.

Canon Announces PowerShot G12 and PowerShot SX30 IS

Canon has announced two new leaders in their lineup of professionally-leaning PowerShot compact cameras—the G12 and the SX30 IS. Here at DP, we’re big fans of the PowerShot G-series (G10 reviewed here and G11 reviewed here), so we were excited about the prospect of a new generation. Upgrades to the 10-megapixel G12 include: built-in High Dynamic Range (HDR) scene mode, Canon’s Hybrid IS technology, “a new control dial… [on] the front of the camera…for easy adjusting of camera settings similar to how users operate a Canon Digital SLR camera,” and  a 5x optical zoom lens with wide-angle capabilities starting at 28mm. Let’s hope that the viewfinder offers much more coverage this time around because, really, that has been our biggest complaint with the camera’s predecessors. The G12 will be available in early October for $499.99.

The new PowerShot SX30 IS is being hailed as the “perfect companion for photo enthusiasts capturing memorable images or videos at sporting events or special occasions” because of its super telephoto lens (24mm to 840mm) and a “Zoom Framing Assist button to aid in the tracking and capturing of subjects from a great distance away while keeping the lens in focus.” The 14.1-megapixel SX30 IS will be available in late September for $429.99.
