Canon PowerShot G1 X

Canon finally took the wraps off their new compact flagship camera today; the new PowerShot G1 X sports an imaging sensor that’s even larger than that of a Micro Four Thirds camera (ie those interchangeable lens compact cameras made by Olympus and Panasonic), and a whole 6.3 times larger than the old PowerShot G12’s sensor. However, the camera’s lens zoom range has been reduced as well as its aperture range, and the G1 X’s physical size also rivals or is bigger than some interchangeable lens camera in the market.

    (sensor measures 1.5 inches diagonally; much larger than on a typical compact camera; 6.3X bigger than the G12’s sensor)
