Canon announces PowerShot G7 X, SX60 HS, and N2

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.
