Earlier this month, we told you that Panasonic was planning to jump onto the retro-style bandwagon sometime in August with the release of its GX7 Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera.

At the time we only had a few illustrations and some preliminary specs, but now that we’re about a month out from the announcement, some official photos and a more comprehensive spec list have both surfaced. Read more…

Images of the Hasselblad Stellar Compact Leaked, Official Announcement in 6 Days

stellar1

At the end of last month, a couple of job listings on Hasselblad’s website revealed that the company was working on two new compacts and a DSLR. Part of their partnership with Sony, the hope was that these upcoming models would do better than the Hasselblad Lunar, which fell flat once people discovered it was basically a rebranded Sony NEX-7 with a much larger price tag.

Well, images of the first of those three cameras have leaked, but it doesn’t look like Hasselblad is breaking the mold. Dubbed the Hasselblad Stellar (in keeping with the space theme), the first of the two rumored compacts looks to be a Sony RX100 made with more exotic camera housing materials. Read more…

About a month ago, we got our first look at what is rumored to be the next big thing from Nokia camera-wise.

Now, we have a couple of leaked low-res product shots to corroborate those IRL images, and a potential release date that has the phone making an official appearance before month’s end. Read more…

So far, the partnership between Hasselblad and Sony hasn’t been as enriching as both companies might have hoped for. Hasselblad’s Lunar mirrorless camera was met with less-than-favorable reviews once people realized it was basically a re-branded Sony NEX-7 with a massive price tag.

But have no fear, the companies haven’t stopped working together yet. In fact, if recent Hasselblad job listings are to be trusted, the company has three new cameras in the works. Read more…

Perhaps Leica isn’t spreading false rumors through a strange marketing campaign after all. Earlier this week, we wrote that Leica may have been leaking fake photos and specs of its upcoming Leica “M Mini” camera in order to make the real thing seem more attractive once it appears. That no longer appears to be the case.

Multiple sites are now reporting that those initial leaks and rumors were indeed true, and that the camera will officially be called the Leica X Vario Type 107.
