Alongside a number of other announcements, Canon has today revealed the PowerShot G1 Mark II, which is an evolution of the Canon G1 X G-series camera, that is a tad bit more refined, allowing users to use DSLR like functions on a camera that feels like a compact camera, and doesn’t reduce the quality.

Featuring a 1.5 inch type CMOS sensor, with 5x image stabilised zoom lens that offers a 24-120mm focal range, and a DIGIC 6 imaging processor, the G1 Mark II is quite impressive.

And that’s not including the f/2.0 aperture at wide angle, f/3.9 max aperture, 31-point AF system, dual lens control rings that allow the zoom, aperture and shutter speed to be controlled manually, and both NFC and Wi-Fi in-built.

For all that the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II will be priced at £799 when it launches in May.
