nikond4s_1

One of the most simultaneously exciting and vague photography announcements to come out of CES this year was the official confirmation that Nikon’s new flagship D4S is on the way. And even though very few details were revealed — find out about those here — attendees were given the opportunity to stare longingly at a D4S that the Nikon folks had brought with them to their booth.

Canon Shows Off the Inner Workings of Its Lenses in Cool CES Demos

Unfortunately, what with major changes at the helm and making sure that we hit 2014 running, we weren’t able to make it to Vegas for CES this year. And I say unfortunately because, not only does it mean we’ll have to wait a minute to get hands on with some of the new releases, but it also meant missing cool demonstrations like the ones you see above.

Earlier today, we shared a couple of leaked photographs of the soon-to-arrive Fujifilm X20, which replaces the X10 but looks virtually identical in appearance (except for the fact that it comes in silver in addition to black).

Not to be outdone, the X100s has gotten itself leaked as well. Photos and specs for that camera have emerged, and reveal that, like the X20, the camera is nearly identical in form to its predecessor.

The mirrorless camera market has been bustling with activity as of late. Rumors have already begun circulating that Canon will be releasing a viewfinder-equipped EOS-M sometime in 2013, Polaroid is working on a Nikon J2 lookalike, and CES is just around the corner, which means many camera makers will be taking the wraps off upgrades to their mirrorless lines.
