Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II

Canon has announced the G1 X Mark II to replace its predecessor, the G1 X. The Mark II features a faster 24-120mm f2-3.9, a wider angle start, longer telephoto end, and closer focus capability. The Mark II is a major overhaul with its new lens, a new sensor, new autofocus system and a pretty major body redesign. The sensor’s still at a 1.5-inch version and the pixel count is actually 12.8 compared to the 14.3 MP the original G1 X was packing. When married with the latest Digic 6 image processor, Canon’s aiming to deliver better low-light performance. They’ve also added in multi-aspect shooting with 3:2 as default and 4:3 added in to preserve filed of view. The old LCD has been swapped out for a tilting touch-screen version that can flip up 180 degrees. The new flash also tilts for bouncing and features dual rings on the lens barrel. The G1 X Mark II also has on-board NFC capabilities and Wi-Fi.

Price is set at $799 with the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II to drop in April.
