Canon PowerShot used to be the line of affordable cameras which, in our impression, was extremely to use but at the expense of performance. Not that their image quality up to par, they were never near “up there”, if you know what I mean. In recent years, the PowerShot namesake has matured and the Japanese imaging equipment maker behind it is relentless in breaking new grounds and will continue to do so with the PowerShot G3 X, which the firm will be showing off the prototype at CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2015 from February 12 through to 15 at Pacifico Yokohama Exhibition Hall in, where else? Yokohama, Japan, of course. The new camera will tout a large 1-inch sensor, paired to a 24-600mm (35mm film equivalent) optic with 25x optical zoom capability, and do so while maintaining its compact stature.
Expect it to deliver a wide range of focal lengths, ranging from wide-angle to telephoto. But beyond those piecemeal info, little is known about this what we thought will be the PowerShot flagship shooter. Lights will be shed in a few days time and who knows? Indicative price maybe announced by then too. So PowerShot lovers, or generally, compact camera worshippers, watch out for it. Better yet, stick around this blog and we shall do our best to bring you any updates when available.
