Canon Kiss X70 and G1 XII Specs Leaked Online

By Anthony Thurston on February 11th 2014

Canon has two new cameras in the works: the Kiss X70 and the G1 XII, which are expected to be announced anytime now. Earlier today, the specs for these two cameras were also leaked online.

The Kiss X70 seems to be a replacement for the EOS 1100D (or Rebel T3) here in North America. It is very much, based on the specs, an entry level DSLR. Just one look at the DIGIC4 processor and 3fps confirms that.


Canon EOS Kiss X70 Specs

  • 18MP APS-C sensor
  • DIGIC4
  • 3 fps
  • ISO100-6400 (12800 extended)

The Powershot G1 X II on the other hand looks to be a pretty impressive little compact camera. The DIGIC6 processor, WiFi/NFC, and 13.2 mp sensor will do well as a travel and vacation camera.

If you had a choice between the two, which one would you get? If you ask me, the G1 XII has the better specs – but being limited to a single mediocre lens is a big drawback, while the Kiss X70 is about as entry level as they come in DSLR land.

    Oh joy. Another Rebel with an 18 MP sensor. This is exactly what the world needs.

    Since the Asian name for Canon EOS 1100D/Rebel T3 is Kiss X50, so this will probably be the new Canon EOS 1200D.

    Video 1980 x 1080 30p… hmm. Quite an interesting aspect ratio. Haha.
