Canon PowerShot G1 X First Impressions Review$799.99
Canon's successor to the excellent PowerShot G12 is a compact powerhouse, with improved continuous shooting, video performance, and better controls. Read our early thoughts on one of the most impressive cameras at CES.
Canon recently unveiled their PowerShot G1 X, the new flagship of the PowerShot lineup. This camera will not be a replacement for the G12, the G1 X will kick of an entirely new branch of PowerShots, but the inspiration is obvious at first glance. The G1 X looks and feels like an update to the G12, in both performance and style. But the biggest difference here is the new 1.5-inch sensor, an absolute giant for this class of camera.
Those who already love the G12 will find almost all of their favorite features and design elements retained, along with a decent amount of additions and improvements. Whether or not those improvements justify the extra $300 still remains to be seen.
