Photokina is here and Canon has announced three new point and shoot cameras. The best of the lot by far is the new PowerShot G7 X, which features a new one-inch sensor.
The new 20.2 megapixel CMOS sensor has an ISO range of 125-12800 and is paired with Canon’s new Digic 6 processor. The camera has a new 31 point AF system and a continuous shooting mode of 6.5fps. The lens is a 24-100mm equivalent with an aperture range of f/1.8 to f/2.8. The lens features a nine-blade aperture diaphragm and a built-in ND filter. The G7 X can record videos in 1080p at 60 frames per second.
On the back is a 3.0-inch, 1,040k dot capacitive touchscreen that tilts upwards by 180 degrees to take self portraits. The camera also includes Wi-Fi and NFC to send your photos wirelessly to a smartphone.
The PowerShot G7 X will be available from October for $699.99.
Next is the PowerShot SX60 HS, which is a superzoom camera. The camera has a 21-1365mm equivalent 65x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilization. Inside is a 16.1 megapixel CMOS sensor with 6.4fps continuous shooting mode and 1080p60 video recording.
On the back is a 3.0-inch, 922k dot fully articulating display. There is also Wi-Fi and NFC for quick image transfers.
The PowerShot SX60 HS will be available in October for $549.99.
Lastly, there is the compact PowerShot N2, the successor to last year’s PowerShot N. The N2 has a 16.1 megapixel CMOS sensor with 28-224mm equivalent 8x optical zoom lens. There is a 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen on the back that tilts upwards by 180 degree for you know what and Wi-Fi and NFC for photo sharing.
The PowerShot N2 will be available in December in black or white for $299.99.
