canonphotokina1

It’s shaping up to be quite a year at Photokina in Germany, with Leica, Sigma and now Canon all expected to drop some serious equipment at the expo. The Canon news comes by way of Canon Rumors, who got wind from a known source that both the 7D Mark II (or whatever the replacement will be called) and a new telephoto lens will both officially arrive in September.

Rumor: Sony to Release a Full-Frame RX 1 with a Black & White Sensor in Late 2014

rx1

It seems Sony is intent on capturing that segment of the market that would like a Leica but can’t afford one. First, the company released the A7 and A7r, full-frame mirrorless cameras that were the first in the world with autofocus. And now, if rumors are to be believed, they’re working on a black-and-white only version of the fixed-lens Full Frame RX 1. Read more…

nikond810

In a move some will inevitably say was planned by Nikon, but which certainly looks a lot more like a mistake from our end, UK tech website Expertreviews has published (and quickly removed) their entire Nikon D810 review ahead of the official announcement, which is expected late tonight. Read more…

If you’ve been following the most recent rumors regarding the long-awaited Canon APS-C flagship 7D Mark II, you know that the latest news is that Canon has some fancy new sensor technology in the works, and that it’s supposed to re-establish Canon as an imaging leader.

None of the rumor sites have been able to pin down what this sensor tech actually is, but its existence seems a near certainty; and now, it looks like the 7D won’t be the only release to benefit from it. Canon may be refreshing the 5D and 1D lines as well. Read more…

Rumor: Reliable Source Says the 7D Mark II Will Feature Completely New Sensor Tech

70dsensor

A reliable source earlier today told Canon Rumors to expect some new sensor technology when Canon finally reveals its followup to the 5-year-old 7D. The source didn’t share many details, but this is supposedly “more than an ‘evolutionary’ technology” — something new that will appear in all Canon DSLRs from this point on but is not the Foveon-like tech spotted in some patents.

With the 7D Mark II supposedly being put through its paces at the World Cup, more details about the tech in the forthcoming APS-C flagship are bound to turn up, so keep checking back and go browse our previous coverage to hold you over in the meantime.

A week from Thursday. Mark your calendars, because that’s the day Nikon’s D800/E replacement will arrive in all its allegedly AA filter-less, 36-megapixel, sRAW capable glory. And according to Nikon Rumors, it will be called the D810, not D800s as previously reported.

You can read more about this shooter and what the rumor sites are expecting its spec sheet to look like by checking out our previous coverage. Or, you know, you could just wait a week and two days… there’s always that option, too.

Fuji’s X-T1 already has one of the most impressive electronic viewfinders in the mirrorless world, but if recent rumors are to be believed, that that isn’t good enough for the Japanese company. Read more…

Rumor: Panasonic to Announce a High End Compact with f/2.0-2.8 Lens & 4K Capability

lx7_1

When it comes to high-end compact cameras, Sony doesn’t exactly have a monopoly on the genre, but the RX100M3 is probably the most talked about of the offerings. With its nifty pop-up viewfinder, a 1-inch sensor and a bright 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens, it is quite the point-and-shoot.

But it soon might have some stiff competition, if news out of the Panasonic rumor mill is to be trusted. Read more…

Rumor: Trusted Sources Report that Fuji Will Release Marginally Improved ‘X-T1b’

XT1_Front-Left_56mm_WhiteBK

Usually the strange, out of the ordinary rumors come with an asterisk, a footnote that reads “anonymous source” or “new source” or something along those lines. This one, however, comes straight from two of Fuji Rumors‘ “trusted sources.”

According to these two sources, Fujifilm is planning to release an updated version of the much-lauded X-T1, a move that would be out of the ordinary for the company. Read more…

Nikon D800/E Replacement’s Release Date ‘Confirmed,’ Expect it on June 26th

d800e_2

Here’s a quick but exciting update for Nikon full-frame shooters. According to Nikon Rumors, who reported in May that the D800/E replacement would arrive sometime in June, the so-called D800s will officially make its debut on June 26th.

NR used the word ‘confirmed’ with this rumor, so we’re assuming it’s as accurate as a date gets without actually being announced by Nikon itself. For more info on the camera, which looks to be an incremental but perhaps still worthwhile update to the D800/E duo, check out our previous coverage that includes a full list of rumored specs.
