Well, here it is. Canon’s reported “ultra-small” DSLR has finally been announced, and it surely does look live up to its rumored moniker – as the camera maker is now classifying it as “The World’s Smallest & Lightest DSLR,” and the start of a new category of cameras for the firm.
Choosing not to skimp on form, encasing their new compact point-and-shoot in brass covers, Pentax seems to have successfully succeeded in pleasantly surprising shooters who are keen to the recent outpouring of retro-inspired cameras. But, of course, the MX-1 is more than just skin deep, with its 12-megapixel backlit-illuminated CMOS sensor, 4X zoom f/1.8-2.5 lens, shift-type image stabilization, and full HD 1080/30p video capture, the MX-1 looks to be a capable performer as well.
Quick News – Not coming as much of a surprise, the full press-releases and detailed X-100s and X-20 specifications have been outed by none other than Fuji themselves just hours before their respective CES 2013 announcements. If you’re the eager type, take a peek at the goods below before hearing and seeing it direct from Fuji later on today.
Quick News – For their last and final DSLR announcement of 2012, Nikon will unveil the D5200 to the world next week, revealing more of an iterative update from its predecessor rather than a full-fledged specification and feature-set shake up.

Right on schedule, and unsurprisingly to those who have been following the D3200′s rumor run these past few months, Nikon has officially announced their 24.2 MP entry level successor to the D3100, bringing with it a slew of improvements over its predecessor, solidifying this update as a release worthy of its new numbered distinction.
