Leica isn’t known for modern styling and innovative design. For the most part, the company sticks with what works, branching out here and there to release a special edition that is sold for an even more outrageous price than the standard version.

But today Leica steps outside of the box with the new Leica T: a APS-C sensor, aluminum unibody camera with surprisingly few physical controls, a large touchscreen and a whole new lens mount. Read more…

Nikon 1 V2: A Serious-Looking Mirrorless for People Who Don’t Want to Think

Just as the rumors predicted, Nikon announced the new V2 mirrorless camera today. Succeeding the Nikon 1 V1, the V2 is a slightly-more-serious mirrorless camera than the recently-launched J2 (think V for “varsity” and J for “junior varsity”). Unlike the J2, the V2 offers more differences from its predecessor than a few minor tweaks.

Canon May Announce Its First Mirrorless Camera Before Summer

There have been a lot of rumors over the last month or two regarding Canon’s imminent entry into the mirrorless world; and it now seems that we won’t have to wait much longer before finding out. According to Canon Rumors, the new camera with its rumored APS-C sensor and 18-45mm kit lens could be announced before summer even starts. Canon’s executive vice president Toshizo Tanaka was also quoted recently as saying,

We will further differentiate and enhance our line-up by launching new cameras offering the image qualities that approaches SLR cameras.

This might seem to fly in the face of recent rumors that an announcement would come in August (just in time for Photokina in September), but the latest word on the street is that that Canon will be announcing its second mirrorless camera at the show in September. Of course, rumors are just that, rumors; but there’s no doubt that a mirrorless camera from Canon is on it’s way, now we just have to wait for a more significant leak to find out when and for how much.

Canon AE-D Mirrorless Camera Concept

Olympus recently rebooted its OM line of film SLRs with the OM-D mirrorless camera, and many photographers are hoping that Canon will follow suit with one of its film bodies. Industrial designer and photographer David Riesenberg is among them, and recently decided turn what he wants to see into a concept drawing. After spending months “learning, debating, modeling, and rendering,” the Canon AE-D was born. Inspired by the AE and AE-P cameras, Riesenberg’s camera features the same 18.1MP full frame sensor found in the 1D X, a new CM-D lens mount that supports EF lenses with an adapter, a 50mm f/1.0L kit lens, and a pentaprism electronic viewfinder that attaches via the hot shoe.

Canon Patent Details 18-45mm Kit Lens for Mirrorless Camera

Looks like Canon has some serious plans to jump into the mirrorless camera market. The company’s G1X camera announced last month has a sensor large enough to compete with existing mirrorless cameras, but lacks an interchangeable lens system. A new patent filed by the company, however, reveals a new 18-45mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens for an APS-C mirrorless camera. It was filed back in 2010, so it seems that the company has been working on a mirrorless camera for quite some time now.
