We know Yashica as a legendary Japanese camera manufacturer. But sadly, the more recent gear launched under this name didn’t exactly live up to its reputation. We probably all remember the Y35 DigiFilm fiasco. However, Yashica didn’t get discouraged and it has just teased a new product.
Well, after a blurry photo of what was claimed to be the Sony A7 IV was apparently posted and then deleted by Sony China over the weekend, now it seems that Sony might be finally ready to announce the Sony A7 III successor – and not a minute too soon. The A7 III is a great camera, but it’s been fraught with shutter problems that Sony seems to have thus far evaded.
Still, Sony has today teased a new camera to be announced on Thursday, October 21st and it’s expected to be the Sony A7 IV. Obviously, Sony hasn’t confirmed what the camera is – because they never do – but all signs seem to point towards it.
As reported a few days ago, Sony has posted to Weibo suggesting that the postponement of today’s announcement is due to the anniversary is due to the Marco Polo Bridge Incident on July 7th, 1937, that led to the Second Sino-Japanese War, which led to large scale invasions of China.
When Sony initially announced the impending July 7th launch date, users on the Chinese social media site Weibo were quick to respond, and not in a positive way. Sony has now published an apology to Weibo, acknowledging those concerns.
Sigma Global has announced an “Online New Product Presentation” set for April 27th. Given some recent Tweets from Nokishita, it looks like it’s going to be the official announcement for the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG DN Art series lens for Panasonic and Sony mirrorless systems. They’ve leaked some of the specs for the new lens, along with a price, stating that it’s been added to some overseas retailers already.
Surprisingly, there don’t appear to be any product photos of the actual lens yet, which is designed for Leica L mount and Sony E mount systems and expected to cost $899, but no doubt they’ll start to pop up in the next few days.
Well, we new something was coming, but we were all a little wrong with the name. Instead of the Z6s and Z7s, they’re actually going to be the Z6II and Z7II and Nikon is planning to official announce them on October 14th – according to a new teaser that’s popped up on the Nikon website.
A couple of successors to the Z6 and Z7 have long been rumoured, hoping to see some features added (like dual card slots) or refined. And while the rumoured names were wrong, if the rumoured specs were close, then they’ll only be incremental updates, but will offer a couple of nice benefits over the existing models.
We’re only days away from the official announcement of Nikon mirrorless camera. And while we wait for 23 August, Nikon is building hype by releasing teaser videos. In the latest one, we get to see a glimpse of the body of the upcoming camera. And judging from the teaser video – Nikon mirrorless camera looks quite a lot like DSLR.
Ok, I get it, I’m a Nikon shooter. A decent Nikon mirrorless camera (finally) is a big deal. But I am starting to get a little sick of the hype already. We’ve had rumours, leaks, a teaser and a sort-of-not-really-an-announcement announcement.
Well, now, we’ve got an official announcement letting us know when there’ll be an official announcement. The rumoured date of August 23rd is now set in stone, according to an email I received from Nikon this morning. At midnight Eastern, 9pm Pacific, or a crazy 5am here in the UK, we’ll finally hear what Nikon have to offer.
It seems that this year is the time for comebacks of the legends. Judging from the latest YouTube video and a website launch, it seems that Yashica is about to make a comeback, too. The legendary Japanese camera brand hasn’t been around for a while, but looks like we can expect a comeback after all.
According to the teaser video available on DJI’s website, they are just about to launch a new model of a drone. They’ve published a teaser video, which suggests that the drone will be smaller from its previous models. The teaser comes along with the time and date of the launch – and it states the drone will be here very soon!
The new Leica M10 is here! The latest addition to the loved M-system lineup is available for preorders, and “Its unique balance of heritage and technical innovation embodies the essence of everything that is truly important for photography.”
This is the thinnest digital M camera of all time, with improved performance and more intuitive handling. It comes with an ISO setting dial on top, along with some other new and interesting features.
