On October 16th Canon officially announced the new PowerShot G1 X Mark III ($1,299 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama) flagship point-and shoot camera with 24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor and DSLR-like autofocus. So, what’s coming next?
The latest rumors suggest Canon will announce at least three new PowerShot cameras for CES 2018 in January, and two of them will be “G” series compact cameras. So, for most Canon folks, that means the Canon PowerShot G3 X Mark II and PowerShot G5 X Mark II are coming for the CES 2018.
As we already reported, besides the G1 X Mark III, the upcoming Canon PowerShot G3 X Mark II and G5 X Mark II will also feature the APS-C sensor. The PowerShot G3 X Mark II is expected to be very similar to the G1 X Mark III without the EVF and the G5 X II will have a smaller sensor.
In addition, I think the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III camera will likely come later at CP+ 2018, not at CES. And currently we are not sure if the smaller Canon PowerShot G9 X and G7 X will move to the APS-C sized sensor.
