Unsurprisingly, as it’s now becoming a yearly occurrence, another Olympus camera has been leaked ahead of it’s official unveiling. This time, it’s the long-rumored E-P3′s successor, shown above and below – a MILC which seems to have taken many design traits from it’s older Olympus brothers – namely the PEN-F.
Pentax’s newly announced MX-1 has just joined the growing crowed of retro-inspired compact cameras, borrowing many design traits from the camera maker’s 35mm SLR days while incorporating the general modern enhancements you would expect in one distinct package.
Developing Rumor: New Carl Zeiss 50mm F/1.4 to be Announced Alongside a Full-Frame Sony SLT in August
Sony Alpha Rumors is in the midst of collecting more and more information from credible sources which point to a presumably exciting month of August for the Sony camp. While Sony themselves have confirmed that a full-frame successor to the A900 is in the works, the topic of conversation has been a bit stagnant as of late, allowing Canon and Nikon to soak-up the full-frame talk handily. Is now the time in which Sony plans to unleash a true large-sensored contender?
Without question, 2012 has already jumped out to a strong and fast start, with Nikon hitting the proverbial ground running, revealing two highly anticipated full frame DSLRs, including the well-received D800/800E, all while Canon is primed to unleash the long-awaited 5D successor in only a matter of days, setting the stage for battle lines to begin to form and comparisons, rightfully or wrongfully so, to emerge.
Now that the Olympus OM-D E-M5 has been officially announced, giving us time to sit back, take-in, and critique all of the information that has emerged, what are your initial impressions of the camera?
The additional four leaked images can be viewed below with even our first look at the E-M5′s optional battery grip to be announced along side the camera this Wednesday, February 8th. Be sure to share your thoughts and opinions on the camera’s final design in the attached poll after the break, in which we kept short and sweet with a simple “Yes” or “No.” Take a look:
Now that the initial dust has settled on the frenzy of the day that was, lots of opinions have been surfacing on to what the mystery Canon DSLR shown above actually is. At this point, there seems to be more contradictions than apparent answers, with the 7D inspired button layout, but large 5D-esque looking prism indicating a possible full-frame sensor and no built-in flash.
Inspired by a recent Planet5D poll, and due to the fact that the Canon EOS C300′s price seems to be as grey as a clouded winter morning, I thought I would turn the question to The Digital Visual readers and see where the general consensus lies.
With the success and regard of the X100, X10, and the soon to be unveiled LX10, Fuji has revitalized the way we look at compact point and shoots and surely the interchangeable lens mirrorless market as well.
Aside from the blogs and such around the inter-webs touting the X100′s prowess as an amazing point and shoot, television advertising, especially in Japan, is a key way for camera companies to make a lasting impression on potential adopters of their product. While TV-spots in the Japanese market primary stick to the tried and true methods of cutesy, abstract, or incredibly artistic forms, Fuji decided to take the latter to a whole new level in a production one could categorize as X-rated (no pun intended).
