    Default Canon announces Powershot G1 X Mark II

    Canon has announced an update to its G1 X camera by introducing the G1 X Mark II.

    The PowerShot G1 X Mark II Enhanced Grip Edition1 is Canon’s flagship professional compact camera, featuring a large 1.5-type Canon CMOS sensor, a super-wide 24mm 5x f/2.0-3.9 zoom, 31-point AiAF, Dual Control Rings and a 7.5cm (3.0”) LCD with touch-screen control plus WiFi with Remote Shooting function and Image Sync. It features the new DIGIC 6 processor and can record Full HD video (1920x1080) at 30p.

    This is a small compact with professional features. One can even use the Wireless connectivity feature which allows users to control the PowerShot G1 X Mark II remotely by installing the Canon CameraWindow app on a smart device. So you can even place the camera near the place where you expect action and shoot wildlife. The smaller size of this camera will make it inconspicuous.
