CES/PMA 2012: Canon Unveils 14.3MP PowerShot G1 X Compact Camera with Large Sensor

Posted by on Monday January 9, 2012 | Uncategorized

Professional photographers looking for a smaller alternative to their digital SLRs will have a portable new camera option starting in February. Canon announced the new PowerShot G1 X, a compact camera which uses a 1.5-inch (18.7 x 14mm), 14.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, just a step down from what you’d find in a DSLR.

The G1 X will replace Canon’s former flagship PowerShot model: the 10MP Canon PowerShot G12, a popular thrown-in-the-bag camera for pros announced back in 2010.

The G1 X won’t be cheap though: when it ship in February it will sell for $800.

If the Canon G1 X lives up to the promise of its specs though, it should produce some very nice images and help out in a pinch when you don’t want to lug around your big rig.
