As the market for premium compact cameras is showing signs of improvement, Canon is aiming to launch even more models in this category.
The flagship PowerShot, G1 X Mark III will receive a 24MP APS-C sized image sensor, instead of the 1.5″ sensor found in the current version. On the other hand the second model, the leakster has also handed out some possible Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II specs and details. Its specifications list will include a 1-inch-type sensor.
The new sensor is rumored to be 20.2-megapixels in resolution, which is the same resolution of the current camera. The new sensor will be equipped with DPAF.
