Bestbuy Leaks The Canon PowerShot G1 X II
It is true! Bestbuy posted the details to the currently unreleased Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II and we are here to keep the information public. The camera is currently for pre-order on their site for only $799, however Canon has not made any announcements for this camera. That’s not too bad of a price considering some of the information we have.
Canon did a great job with their original PowerShot G1 and it is nice to see a new one coming out. The PowerShot G1 Mark II has a nice variety of features that seem to be quite the improvement from the G1 Mark I. This is definitely a camera that can be carried around for almost any situation and I can already see myself using it for some daily photos. Let us know your thoughts on it after reading through the specs!
Here are some of the features the new camera has:
- 12.8 megapixel, 1.5” CMOS sensor
- 5x optical/4x digital/20x total zoom
- 3” capacitive touch-panel LCD
- High-definition movie mode
- DIGIC 6 image processor
- Optical image stabilizer
- Scene modes
- Burst Mode
- White balance modes
- Built-in flash
- High-speed autofocus
- Built-in Wi-Fi
- Built-in NFC (near-field communication)
- Multicard slot
Overall, it is good to see the camera having the wi-fi built in and also the multicard slot. But, one of the main features that seems to be great is hearing about “high-speed autofocus”. There is never a time that I complain about my camera focusing too fast.
The only negative mark I have strictly based on the specs provided and not from personal use, is that I wish there were some more megapixels. I am definitely a fan of having more space to work with but at the same time this is not something that would stop me from making the purchase of this camera.
Take a look at some of the images released of the camera. The LCD display is looking pretty nice. I like the design of the body and do not have much to criticize about it.
Here is a full list of comprehensive specifications that was displayed on Bestbuy’s listing. You can also visit the Bestbuy product listing page for more information on this camera.
