Polaroid Shows Off Instagram Logo Lookalike ‘Socialmatic’ Camera at Photokina

The long-awaited Polaroid 'Socialmatic' -- a square camera that looks like the Instagram app logo (which was, of course, inspired by a Polaroid camera in the first place) -- is one step closer to an official release. And now that Polaroid brought some prototypes with them to Photokina, the unwieldy digital instant camera is starting to look more and more like a potential flop.

Nikon Rumored to Unveil New Full Frame Camera at Photokina

As Photokina draws nearer, the rumor mill seems to be churning out more and more notable updates. The latest of these is a compilation of rumors shared with Nikon Rumors that points at Nikon releasing a new full-frame DSLR.

The Long-Awaited Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II May Show Its Face at Photokina

The Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens first debuted in 1998... 1998! In November that'll be sixteen years on the market without a replacement, and while lenses aren't typically replaced as frequently as camera bodies, hope that Canon would manufacture a 'sequel' to the trusty old lens still runs strong.

Well, those hopeful hearts now have something to rejoice about, because the Canon Rumors has received a concrete tip that the 100-400mm followup will indeed be arriving alongside the 7D Mark II just in time for Photokina in September.

Rumor: Canon 7D Mark II Announcement at Photokina, Prototypes at FIFA World Cup

Almost five years in the making, the followup to Canon's 7D still hasn't become more than a rumor, making many wonder if a Mark II (or any new APS-C flagship) will ever arrive.

New Leica S to be Announced at Photokina, Packs a 40-50MP CMOS Sensor & 4K Video

From some talks with a Leica rep at the 2014 NAB show, it looks like Digipixelpop has found out that the next Leica S will be announced at Photokina in September. Packing a 40-50MP medium format CMOS sensor and 4K video, it's an interesting addition to Leica's current line-up, but one we probably should've seen coming considering PhaseOne, Pentax and Hasselblad have all already hopped on the CMOS medium format train.

Joby Laid the Smackdown on GorillaPod Counterfeiters During Photokina

Joby sent out a press release today warning consumers that there are counterfeit versions of its popular GorillaPod flexible tripod floating around in the wild. While that isn't too newsworthy in itself -- what gear isn't being counterfeited these days? -- it's the juicy details surrounding the release that are quite interesting. Apparently the company directly confronted companies involved in making imitations during Photokina 2012 in Cologne, Germany last month.
