I just received word that the Canon G12 will have a DX sensor. Wow! This could be huge if it’s true.
I’d love to have a G12 size camera with a sensor that is HUGE in comparison to it’s competition. Imagine how great the image quality would be if the G12 kept the megapixels down to the G11 level, stayed at 10 megapixels AND was a DX sensor!
Unfortunately, I can’t say that I put a lot of faith in this rumor. I’d have to rate it a 1, maybe a 2 at best on the RumorToReality scale. But hey… this is a rumors column, and we can still hope!
Now if they brought out a G12 with a DX sensor, imagine if they gave us an S90 successor with the same DX sensor. That would be the most amazing, smallest camera on the market today! I’d be all over one.
Makes you wonder why the big guys haven’t given us a small compact with a DX sensor yet? I think it would be a BIG seller. Hint… hint… Canon, Nikon, Sony…
