As expected and as so accurately foreseen by the rumor-mills, Nikon has announced an update to one half of their current mirrorless interchangeable lens camera offerings, revealing subtle, but welcoming enhancements to the 1-series J-line of MILCs.
Nikon Rumors is reporting that Nikon is expected to announce the successor and replacement to one-half of their mirrorless interchangeable lens camera offerings, planning to announce the ‘J2′ (J1 shown above) and a slew of new mirrorless accessories for the 1-series.
The images above and below are the first true leaked shots of Canon’s upcoming mirrorless interchangeable lens offering to be coined the “EOS M.”
Quick News – Canon Rumors is reporting word from a known source, stating that the camera maker’s long-awaited jump into the mirrorless interchangeable lens camera market will come in about one months time henceforth, revealing a highly anticipated new model on July 24th, 2012.
After last week’s private Sony event was proven to be not-so-private due to the vast NEX-F3 and Alpha A37 image leaks which surfaced, it was only a matter of time before each camera’s specification revelations soon followed.
On May 17th, 2012, Sony will officially announce the above-mentioned respective entry-level NEX and Alpha models alongside two zoom lenses – the 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS, and 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 SAM, the latter of which will be priced at or around $500.00.
As expected, just hours after the first image leak of the soon-to-be-announced Sony NEX-F3 emerged, a whole slew more have followed, this time bringing the upcoming Alpha A37 along for the ride as well, revealing a fairly complete look at both cameras ahead of their respective “mid-May” announcement time-frames.
The new leaks, which can be viewed entirety below, come courtesy of Yangcanggih, straight from an apparent off the radar Sony event. Take a look:
Adding a dose of visual confirmation to the initial reports from earlier in the week, the first leaked image of the soon to be announced Sony NEX-F3 has emerged courtesy of the DPReview forum member “bibogue.”
As the image above clearly shows and has been reported to be, the NEX-F3 will boast a same 16.1 MP sensor found in its predecessor, the NEX-C3, while adding built-in flash functionality, and, hopefully, carry the NEX-5N’s 1080/60p video capabilities as the AVCHD branding would suggest. Also visible is what Sony Alpha Rumors is reporting as a Samsung MV800-esque rear LCD, which can be adjusted from 0 to 180 degrees.
When the Pentax K-01 was first announced and unveiled, there was, and continues to be, polarizing opinions regarding its overall look. While some happen to love the unique twist that renowned designer Marc Newson bestowed upon the camera, others, well… can’t seem to warm up to it…
Quick News – Whether by marketing design, or by legitimate cracks in the vow of pre-camera announcement secrecy, Samsung has now experienced their second upcoming mirrorless camera leak in the past two weeks, this time confirming the existence of the NX1000, a camera rumored to be in the Samsung’s pipeline for quite sometime.
