Canon PowerShot G1 X Digital Camera Review$799.99
Canon's new G1 X features a giant 1.5-inch CMOS sensor and the same manual control that we loved on the G12.
Canon's new PowerShot G1 X is highly reminiscent of the popular G12, but will not replace this model in the company's lineup. The G1 X represents the start of an entirely new branch of Canon cameras. The star of this show is gigantic new 1.5-inch CMOS sensor, larger than the Four-Thirds standard and much larger than the G12's 1/1.7-inch CCD.
These specifications come at a steep price though. The G12 will retail for $799.99, and is clearly intended as a compact companion camera for intermediate and advanced photographers.
