Plenty of Fujifilm gear has leaked over the years: from instant cameras to medium format. Most recently, we saw the now announced GFX 100S appear online – but did it really leak? In this brilliant and hilarious ad, Fuji tells us “the truth” about how the company’s latest medium format camera got to leak days ahead of the announcement.
Fujifilm has announced that their upcoming Fujifilm X Summit is happening on January 27th at 1pm GMT. At the X Summit, Fuji is expected to announce their new 102-megapixel Fujifilm GFX100S camera, along with three new lenses; the GF80mm, XF70mm and XF70-300mm.
There hasn’t been a whole lot of info leaked about any of the upcoming announcements yet, and while I haven’t seen any real photos of the camera leaked, Nokishita has leaked images of the three impending lenses.
It was rumoured way back in January, and expected “soon”, but now it looks like it might finally be on the way very soon. The first photo has leaked of what is expected to be Venus Optics’ new Laowa FF II Argus 35mm f/0.95 lens for both DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. This means we can likely expect it to come in both Nikon F & Z as well as Canon EF & RF mounts. Chances are we’ll see Sony E and Leica L, too.
As to which mounts will come first, though, is anybody’s guess.
We’re basically hours away from the announcement of the Fujifilm X-S10. However, a full press release, specs, and photos have already leaked. If you’re curious about what Fujifilm brings in the latest mirrorless camera, let’s check it out.
A couple of photos of Sigma’s upcoming 105mm f/2.8 DG DN Art series macro lens for Sony E and Leica L mounts. Pictures of the L mount version leaked a week or so ago, but now Nokishita has leaked some new slightly higher quality product images showing it mounted to an actual Sony body. The lens is expected to be officially announced by Sigma later today, but the specs have also already been leaked.
A few weeks ago, we had a chance to see some leaked photos of the upcoming GoPro Hero 9. Rumor has it that it will include some novelties such as a color front screen and 5K video capabilities. Well, if you’re curious to see more of the Hero 9 before it gets announced, take a look at this unboxing video that’s leaked before the official announcement.
Well, it wasn’t much of a surprise, really, was it? Images always seem to leak a couple of days ahead of official announcements these days. This time, it’s the Panasonic S5’s turn. The complete specs for the new camera were leaked a couple of weeks ago, and Panasonic teased us with an S5 trailer in the last few days, stating that it’s aimed at content creators.
Now we know what the whole thing looks like, and it looks like they might’ve gotten it right. At least, it has a flippy out LCD and not the tilting LCD of its S1 cousins. But I don’t think they’re really aiming it at the entry-level with this one.
According to recently leaked images, GoPro is about to get a big change in the Hero 9 model. It looks like the latest action cam will have a selfie screen in full color. In other words, the front display will no longer only show your camera settings, but it might come in handy for vloggers and selfie-takers, too.
One of the biggest complaints about smartphone gimbals, particularly with the size of today’s phones is that they typically attach via a springy “claw” type mechanism. This can be troublesome with huge phones, often pressing the buttons on the side of your phone when you least want them to. You can shift the phone over, of course, but then it’s all out of balance, stressing the motors and battery.
A new leak of what appears to be the DJI Osmo Mobile 4 seems to fix that, though, by using magnets to hold your phone safely onto the gimbal. This should help to make things lighter, as well as avoiding the button-pushing balancing issue.
Well, I think this quashes any idea that Panasonic was looking to compete with the Canon EOS RP, Nikon Z5 and whatever Sony has up their sleeve. Nokishita is reporting that the price for the upcoming Panasonic S5 will be $1,997.99 (or $2,297.99 for the S5 kit that includes a lens – although they haven’t stated which lens).
They’ve also leaked the press text for the announcement, which states that the Panasonic S5 has been “designed especially for content creators”. Let’s hope that means it has the flippy out LCD of Panasonic’s Micro Four Thirds cameras, and not the tilting LCD of the other full-frame L mount bodies.
