Canon Announces G1X – Replaces G12

There was plenty of information about Canon replacing the G12 in the last few months, and now it's official with the coming of the G1X. [Update] It appears that the G1X is not a replacement, but a new line of camera.

Sorry for the short post guys, i'm flying out to Las Vegas (CES) today, but you can read more about it over at the B&H Article (click here).

Pricing expected to be around $799 can be found with more technical product specs at the pre-order page already live (click here).

    I have G10 but wished for much better ISO performance, like my 5Dii so hugh kudos to canon for the increase in sensor size and related performance but really wished the styling of the G1x was much Fuji xPro1 and less 80's. for me its a design opportunity missed. But will probably end up buying one anyway!

    Why is I'm flying out as you are flying in each time. Check out the Audi booth, the lighting is something else.

    Built-in 3-stop ND filter - WOW!! (I'm not being sarcastic.)
    I really hope built-in ND filters becomes standard.

    BTW, was that 28mm 35mm equivalent or crop equi.?

  4. No manual video control? Are you kidding me? This might not have interchangeable lenses but this thing could go head to head with the GH2 if the video features were good. The sensor size is fantastic.

    The 1Dx is still fairly new. It's not smart to run out and try to top something that the competition JUST announced.

    I believe this will be sold along side the G12 and not as a replacement. But it does look pretty awesome.

    There's a live discussion going on with Canon and the rep says it has better low light and noise capability than the 7D and 60D because of DIGIC 5. No manual control over video exposure.

    Ohh, me want! A little pricey tho. I guess that's why the guy keeps stressing a camera for professionals.
