Canon significantly redesigns PowerShot G1 X for Mark II update (pictures)

For the most part, the changes should be welcome.

Buh-bye, front dial

The G1 X Mark II has two rings on the lens, one of which is user programmable and the other dedicated to focus. I suppose the programmable ring is supposed to serve the same function as the front adjustment dial.

Tilt, no swivel

Canon swapped the articulated LCD for a tilting touch screen. The redesigned flash can be tilted back for bouncing, a nice improvement.

Selfie tilt

The display can flip up 180 degrees for self-portraits.

No more EV dial

It gives the camera a much flatter top.

So long, OVF

Canon dropped the optical viewfinder in favor of an optional tilting EVF.
