Sony’s Revolutionary Pellicle Mirror SLT Technology May Be Going Away

sonya58

Back in August 2010, Sony shook up the camera industry by announcing the first pellicle mirror DSLRs, the A33 and the A55. Rather than being called SLRs, the new cameras were labeled SLT, or “single lens translucent”, cameras.

Now, less than three years later, we may be seeing Sony’s big SLT experiment coming to an end. Sony’s A58 announced back in February may be the company’s last APS-C camera to feature pellicle mirror technology.

Fuji May Announce Entry-Level X-Series Mirrorless Camera with Tiny 2/3 Sensor

Update: It seems that this rumor was off base. The latest word is that there is indeed a 2/3 sensor coming, but it will appear in a new XS2 fixed lens camera. The upcoming entry-level X-Series camera will continue to feature a APS-C-sized sensor. That makes a lot more sense.

We’ve heard that Fujifilm is primed to make some camera announcements this summer, and according to Digicame-Info one of those announcements may be a new entry-level X-mount mirrorless camera. The camera is expected to be announced in the summer (possibly June, according to PhotoRumors) and made available in the fall for anywhere between $550 and $700.

But it’s not the price, release date, or even the existence of a potential entry-level mirrorless ILC from Fujifilm that has people talking. Instead, it’s the rumor that the camera will come to market sporting a tiny 2/3-inch X-Trans CMOS sensor.

Review: Olympus E-PM2 Is Small, Speedy, And Sleek, But Its UI is Not

olympusepm2-1

Olympus first ushered its PEN brand into the digital age back in 2009 with the E-P1. Since then, the lineup has split into three distinct tiers: the E-P line for standard PEN cameras, the E-PL line for smaller “Lite” models, and the E-PM line for even smaller “Mini” models. Goldilockean photographers can therefore choose the size and feature set most appropriate to their needs (and hands).

Unveiled in late 2012, the E-PM2 is the second generation PEN “Mini”, offering pretty much exactly what the E-PL3 does except in an even tinier package, without a tilting screen, and carrying a friendlier price tag.

kodaks1a

Kodak had quite the surprise for the camera world today: the company announced that it will be soon joining the Micro Four Thirds standard with a new mirrorless camera called the S1.
