We got the chance to spend some time playing around with Canon's newest creation, the G1 X compact camera, on the CES show floor last night. Thanks to a new High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor that measures 18.7 x 14mm -- slightly smaller than APS-C but slightly larger than a Micro Four Thirds Sensor -- the G1 X offers a great deal of photographic fire power, in a compact, yet rugged package.
