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.
Fujifilm made quite a splash in the camera industry when it announced the sleek X100 back in September 2010, but since then the camera’s spotlight has been stolen by newer interchangeable-lens followups, namely the X-Pro1 and the X-E1.
When the X100 was discontinued back in July, many expected to see a followup announced at Photokina in September. It wasn’t. However, it now appears that the camera will be launched in early 2013, equipped with the same X-Trans sensor technology as its interchangeable-lens siblings.
Murmurings of an upcoming Canon 7D Mark II, which we first wrote about back in October, are starting to heat up. It was suggested that the camera, which may mark the merger of the 60D’s and 7D’s lines, was to offer a high continuous shooting rate. More recent reports seem to back up that particular spec, as we as offer some more info on who Canon is targeting with the camera.
There are new rumors floating around that a Canon 7D Mark II might not be too far off. Northlight Images writes that the camera will reportedly be announced early in 2013, in time for the trade shows CP+ in Japan and PMA/CES in the United States. The camera may be a successor to both the 7D and the 60D, offering more advanced features at a reduced price that targets the serious-amateur segment of the market.
The rumors say that Canon is trying to boost the continuous shooting speed of the camera up to 10 frames per second, and that the company won’t be putting more than 25 megapixels of resolution in the sensor. Canon Rumors is predicting that we’ll be seeing a slow down in the APS-C DSLR market, since the new Canon 6D and Nikon D600 are doing a lot to disrupt the standard pricing structure of the consumer DSLR industry.
