Because it is their job to know a company inside and out, investment analysts tend to get "heads up" on products yet to be available to the general public. So on the cusp of The International Consumer Electronics Show, better known as CES, in Las Vegas this month, analysts at Well Fargo Advisors leaked out specification of a new flagship compact digital camera for Canon. Billed as the Canon G1X, the camera is to have a 28-112mm zoom lens with an aperture of f/2.5. Like many top-of-the-line compact cameras today, the G1X will also enable RAW file format and 1080p HD video recording. The most intriguing part though is its image processor, which might be the newest Canon DIGIC 5, and a 1.5-inch 14.3 megapixel sensor, quite large for a compact. But nothing is for certain till the official announcement. CES is to take place starting next Tuesday, January 10th, to Friday, January 13th. via: The Verge
