Various sources are reporting Canon’s intent to announce a an “ultra-small” DSLR, breaking ground on a new category of cameras for the firm and possibly fulfilling on the notion Canon themselves had hinted at a few years ago.
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.
The road we have all traveled to get to this point has been a long, grueling, rumor-filled roller coaster ride to say the least. But, as they say, great things come to those who wait. The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is official. This post will serve as a hub for continuously updated information regarding the most anticipated camera in recent memory.
Earlier this month, the folks at Photographic Central received word from a “well informed gentleman” that the Sony A600 was not only on its way, but would also be ditching the translucent mirror and electronic viewfinder and fall in line with the features of a conventional DSLR, as opposed to Sony’s line of SLT’s. This “well informed gentleman,” who is close to Sony, even went as far as to divulge preliminary A600 specifications, which can be found HERE.
If you are one of the many who plan to purchase a brand spanking new Nikon D800 or D800E some time in the foreseeable future from a U.S. retailer, you may want to take a peek at some interesting information uncovered by NikonRumors regarding the expected profit margins resellers are expected to enjoy off your purchase.
While Sony has been enjoying the successes of their mirrorless and SLT cameras as of late, raking in the critic’s acclaim for the recent A65, A77, NEX-5N, and NEX-7 releases, the latest rumors paint the camera maker as returning to their conventional DSLR roots if the latest A600 talk pans out.
Nikon sure isn’t resting on their laurels following the recently announced and well-received D4 and D800 announcements, as the camera maker is anything but satisfied with the huge amount of momentum already generated through the first few weeks of 2012.
As the long and rumor-filled road we all traveled on to get to this point comes to an end, the speculation, uncertainty, and presumptions can now end as well. The Nikon D800 and D800E are real and if you have been following attentively to all the updates over the past four months, you should be pleased to know that nearly all the believed features, specs, and technical information regarding Nikon’s new full-frame 36.3MP DSLR have come to fruition. Here are a reiteration of the concrete details:
