As CES 2012 gets ready to roll, we've scheduled two Live Q&A sessions tonight that will let readers put their thoughts and questions to the manufacturers directly, on a couple of the most exciting digital cameras announced thus far. (Update: The Q&As are both now over, but you can read the archived sessions in our Canon G1 X preview and Nikon D4 preview pages.)

If you have a question you'd like answered on the Canon G1 X or Nikon D4, now's your chance, so don't wait! We're expecting both sessions to be busy, and we're accepting submissions right now via our Twitter feed. To submit a question about the Canon G1 X, tweet @ir_lab and mention "G1X" in the body of the message. Or if you prefer, ask a question about the Nikon D4, by tweeting @ir_lab and mentioning "D4" in the message text. (Heck, ask questions about both cameras, if you like!) ;-)

We'll be following that up with a Live Q&A session at 6:15 PM PST, January 9th to talk about the just-announced Canon G1 X with Chuck Westfall, Technical Advisor with the Professional Engineering & Solutions Division at Canon U.S.A., Inc. Excited by the possibilities of Canon's first large-sensor fixed-lens camera?

Also, note that we're conducting more traditional interviews with Nikon on Wednesday, as well as interviews with Fuji, Samsung, Sigma, Sony, Panasonic, Pentax and Olympus. @ message IR_Lab any questions you have for these manufacturers. Although these sessions will be transcribed shortly afterwards, rather than being conducted live, they still represent a great opportunity to get your questions answered!
