Canon focuses on compact snapper spruce-up

PowerShot X1 hits the G spot?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

CES 2012

Canon has snapped into action at CES, introducing the long-awaited next-gen addition to its highly-popular G series of premium compact cameras.

Canon G1 X

The Canon PowerShot G1 X sits alongside its previous top dog, the PowerShot G12, displacing it at the head of the food chain as the company's best point-and-shoot.

The 14.3Mp super-snapper rocks up with a 1.5in, 14.3Mp Cmos sensor, almost matching the size of those found in mirrorless models and full-blown DSLRs. This paves the way for higher quality images in low light settings - it boasts an ISO sensitivity of 12800.

Canon G1 X

The G1 X sports a 4x 28mm lens with a 35mm equivalent of 28mm-112mm and an aperture range of f/2.8-16. It handles 1080p video through a dedicated button, and takes both Raw and Jpeg still images which can all be viewed and previewed on the 3in swivelling LCD panel on the rear.

The Canon PowerShot GX 1 starts shipping late February with an expected retail price of £700-800. ®
