Canon PowerShot G1 X Successor Leaks Out, Shows Detachable EVF

G1X2

The upcoming replacement for the PowerShot G1 X has leaked out a few days before release. The camera is rumored to have a slimmer body and lighter weight, as well as an external EVF. Most notable, the lens is expected to be improved to a 24-120mm f/2-3.9 lens (compared to the f/2.8-5.8 lens on the original G1 X).

Additionally, the G1 X successor should be equipped with a DIGIC 6 processor and cost around $700 USD.

New Entry-Level Canon DSLR Coming to CP+

Canon Rebel SL1-5

The latest rumors suggest that the next Canon DSLR coming to us will be an entry-level model situated below the Canon Rebel SL1 and will be showcased at CP+ next month.

Recall that the Rebel SL1 was announced in March 2013 and turned out to be a fantastic little camera. I liked it so much that I bought one for myself. It is a great camera to carry when paired with the EF 40mm f/2.8 ST lens.

I look forward to seeing if Canon will continue this new compact line, or if this will be more like an update to the very low-end Rebel T3.
