Canon G1 X Mark II - sample gallery images posted

Canon's PowerShot G-series has always been a highly popular and stalwart series of compact cameras that cater to the enthusiast crowd and to DSLR owners with pro-level features and controls. With the introduction of the G1 X back in 2012, Canon changed up the game a bit by packing in a larger-than-typical "1.5-inch type" CMOS sensor, which is significantly larger than those found in the typical compact camera. While the original was a little rough around the edges, the new G1 X Mark II aims to polish things up a bit.

Keeping a similar (but different) "1.5-inch type" CMOS sensor, the Mark II actually has a slightly lower megapixel count, plus an upgrade to Canon's latest image processor, the DIGIC 6, which should help not only with overall image quality but also speed and performance (the original G1 X was a bit on the sluggish side). 

The Canon G1 X Mark II has been immensely popular with our readers thus far, and will soon be in the capable hands of one of our top reviewers, so stay tuned! In the meantime, head over to our Canon G1 X Mark II Gallery page to browse through our first batch of real world images.
