Canon will allegedly announce its superzoom camera with a large sensor in the near future, with the PhotoPlus Expo 2014 as the most likely event for the device’s introduction.
When Canon unveiled the PowerShot G7 X compact camera at Photokina 2014, the company’s Hong Kong branch has confirmed that a similar device is coming and that it will feature a superzoom lens.
No further specifics have been given, other than the fact that Canon representatives have confirmed the existence of the camera in a bunch of interviews. Recently, the shooter has been mentioned in a video posted by the Netherlands-based branch of the manufacturer, but no launch details have been provided.
As usual, the hot tidbits are coming from the rumor mill and it appears that the new Canon PowerShot superzoom camera with a large sensor will be announced in the immediate future.
Canon to announce PowerShot camera with superzoom lens at PhotoPlus Expo 2014
Although Canon has not confirmed a particular timeframe for the launch of this camera, sources are reporting that we should keep an eye out on the PhotoPlus Expo 2014 event.
The show will open its doors on October 29 and it could include the introduction of this compact camera with a large zoom.
It is very likely that the superzoom camera will have very similar specs to the PowerShot G7 X, including the 20.2-megapixel 1-inch-type CMOS sensor made by Sony.
The difference will be given by the lens. The G7 X employs a 24-100mm (35mm equivalent) lens, while the upcoming model will obviously feature a more extended zoom range.
If a large zoom is not appealing to you, then you can get the PowerShot G7 X at Amazon for a price of $699, with shipping beginning as of October 17.
New Canon PowerShot superzoom camera will be a compact, not a bridge-like shooter
The aforementioned video posted by Canon Netherlands reveals the silhouette of the superzoom shooter. Just like the company had already told us, the device will not be based on a bridge-like design.
This is a compact model and it will be aimed at people who take lots of photos during their travels or vacations.
The PhotoPlus Expo 2014 may be most likely event for the camera’s unveiling, but we should not rule out any other possibilities.
The new Canon PowerShot superzoom camera could become official before this event or even a few days after it, so stay tuned in order to grab all the details!
