NEW Canon Powershot G1X Revealed

Canon skipped their usual yearly update of the G-Series in the Autumn so we knew they were up to something.  Canon Rumors is reporting that a URL briefly displayed a report on this new camera sometime today.  Aimed at being the P&S for the professional , the camera features 14-Bit Raw shooting of a 14MP image processed by a Digic 5 processor with full 1080p video as well.  No images of the camera have yet emerged though.  Shipping in February at a $799 suggested retail.  That’s a steep price for a point and shoot camera in today’s market so it’s going to have to be pretty stellar !
