CES 2017 kicks of the start of the year tomorrow with press releases already trickling in. This year, we do not know much of what to expect. Camera makers have either been keeping things well under wraps or are not planning that many product launches. As with previous years, we do not expect that many new camera models.
First off the door this morning was Canon with their announcement of the Canon Powershot G9 X Mark II, a revised and slightly faster version of their smallest G-series cameras. The processor has been changed, allowing up to 8.2 FPS continuous shooting for 38 JPEG images or 21 RAW files. Sensor, lens and body remain the same. The G9 X Mark II is expected to arrive next month for $529 USD.
Nikon is warming up their press-release muscles with the launch of 3 existing digital cameras, plus a new one! The ultra-compact point-and-shoot Nikon Coolpix A300 makes its debut at CES 2017. This is a camera built around a 20 MP 1/2.3″ CCD and 8X wide-angle optical zoom lens with image stabilization.
The Nikon Coolpix A10 and waterproof Nikon Coolpix W100 were announced to the US market too. Also re-announced was the Nikon D5600 entry-level DSLR, replacing the excellent Nikon D5500 reviewed here with a nearly identical mode, adding Bluetooth, NFC and Time-Lapse Video.
