Canon is refreshing its premium line of point-and-shoots with the PowerShot G9 X Mark II, a sleek camera with a decent set of specs. Notably, there's a 1-inch 20.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and Digic 7 image processor, coupled with a 3x optical zoom lens (28-84mm) and a 3-inch LCD. You'll also find an 8.2 frames-per-second continuous shooting mode, as well as WiFi and NFC for controlling the camera remotely. The PowerShot G9 X Mark II is expected to hit stores in February for $530/£450.

In addition to the new point-and-shoot, Canon also introduced three new Vixia HF-R Series camcorders, the R82, R80 and R800. They all sport a 57x zoom, optical-image stabilizer, a 3.28-megapixel (1080p) CMOS sensor and a 3-inch LCD, with the main difference between them being the amount of built-in storage for each. The R82, R80 and R800 are priced at $450, $400 and $300, respectively, and will also arrive next month.

When he wasn't on the pitch scoring hat tricks, he could be found near his SNES or around the house, taking things apart. Edgar's also deeply in love with tacos, sneakers and FIFA, in no particular order. He lives in New York City with his better half.
