Earlier Canon officially confirmed the PowerShot G1 X, and here at Pepcom: Digital Experience we were able to get hands-on. It compared to previous models in the G series, the G1 X is a bit larger and has a very decent compact-fixed lens. With its 14.3 megapixel CMOS sensor it would be perfect for any intermediate level photographer.
The folks at Canon are letting loose the hounds this week with a set of no less than SIX new camcorders for your HD flash memory recording pleasure. You've got three in the compact VIXIA HF M-series and three more in a more entry-level side with the R-series. All of these models are able to record directly to MP4 of AVCHD and each with full DLNA compatibility for wireless transfer after you're done capturing. Specifically the Canon VIXIA HF M52, VIXIA HF M50, VIXIA HF R32 and VIXIA HF R30 have the ability to upload directly to social media sites as well, transferring to YouTube and Facebook with great ease and to mobile devices such as, as they say, the iPhone or the iPad, done without effort on a free Movie Uploader app which you can download yourself.
Canon's new G1 X isn't the company's only fresh PowerShot; there are also two new ELPH point-and-shoots, the 520 HS and 110 HS, each with sub-$300 price tags. The ELPH 520 HS totes a 10.1-megapixel high-sensitivity CMOS and a 12x optical zoom, while the ELPH 110 HS has a 16-megapixel sensor and a smaller, 5x optical zoom.
Canon has officially confirmed the PowerShot G1 X, toting a 1.5-inch 14.3-megapixel CMOS sensor that, the company reckons, offers nine times more light sensitivity than rival cameras. The G1 X has a 4x optical zoom with f/2.5 to f/16 aperture, while the wide-angle lens kicks off at 28mm.
Canon's new PowerShot G1X has been prematurely detailed, a 14.3-megapixel flagship set to be unveiled at CES 2012 next week. Leaked, just like the Fujifilm X-Pro 1, by Wells Fargo, the G1X is being targeted at "advanced amateurs" along with point-and-shoot professionals, toting a 4x (28-112mm) optical zoom and an F/2.5-16 aperture.

Canon has announced a significant milestone in the production of the EOS camera series and EF lenses production cycle. Canon has now produced 50 million EOS-series SLR digital cameras and 70 million EL lenses to go with those digital cameras. Production of the EOS SLR cameras started in 1987. That would include some film cameras and some DSLR units as well looking at the dates.
