Canon PowerShot G1 X compact tipped to get a Mk II upgrade, 20.2-megapixel and DIGIC 6
The two year old camera will get a Mark II version, making a high-end camera option for users who want a small form-factor. The new version is said to be similar in design to the original G1 X, but offering a slightly longer lens. Users will see a 20.2-megapixel 1.5-inch CMOS sensor, coupled with a 24-120mm f/2.8-5.8 lens, and DIGIC 6 image processor to ensure photos come out crystal clear.
The Mark II version is said to be keeping its same 3-inch LCD touch screen with 922,000 dots. Essentially what customers will be getting here is better photos, and who doesn't like that?
Of course, nothing's been confirmed by Canon. If all goes as planned, the company is expected to make a reveal at the CP+ show in Japan next month. No pricing has been mentioned, but the last Powershot G1 X version went for £700, and we suspect Canon won't go too far off for its second version.
