Canon Inc, one of the leading camera makers of the world has introduced their new line of premium compact cameras, armed with 1-inch 20.2MP CMOS image sensor that should bring brilliant image results. Compact cameras with 1-inch sensors are usually the best when it comes to quality results. The new cameras include the Canon G5 X, and the other called the Canon G9 X.

Canon has included their best features for these two new shooters, such as their Digic 6 image processor. Although, there are some differences between them. The G5 X has a built in electronic viewfinder with 2.36 million dots, and a 3-inch tilting LCD screen. Whereas, the G9 X doesn’t have an electronic viewfinder, but has a fixed screen. However, both cameras feature NFC, WiFi, and extended ISO up to 25,600.

The Canon G5 X, and the G9 X will have a price tag of $799, and $529, respectively.
