According to recently leaked images, Sigma is about to announce three new lenses for Sony E and Leica L mount. We didn’t know much info at first, but thanks to Nokishita, we now know the specs for the 24mm f/3.5 DG DN lens.
According to a Twitter post from Nokishita, Sigma is getting ready to announce three new lenses. They’re DG DN lenses, designed specifically for Sony E and Leica L mirrorless mount cameras. The news comes by way of leaked product photos of each of the three lenses, but other than that, there’s not much info to go on just yet.
The three lenses are the 24mm f/3.5 DG DN, 35mm f/2 DG DN, and 65mm f/2 DG DN – as we can see from the text emblazoned on photos of the three lenses. We can also see that they have filter diameters of 55mm, 58mm and 62mm respectively, have manual aperture rings and lens hoods. That’s pretty much it, really. An official announcement is expected on December 1st.
It looks like Panasonic’s plan for the 85mm f/1.8 is to indeed make a reasonably priced prime lens aimed at attracting lower budget users into the L mount ecosystem. At least, it is if the price tag being reported by Nokishita turns out to be true. They say it’s expected to be the same price as Panasonic’s 20-60mm f/3.5-5.6 L mount lens, which sits at around $599.
They’ve also leaked some photos of the new lens, which shows a compact and clean looking design. There’s just a single switch on the side to flick between Autofocus and Manual Focus with a wide-banded ring for when you want to switch to the latter.
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.
A few days ago, Sony teased A7c, a “new concept” camera scheduled to launch on 15 September. But as it often happens, a few images have leaked a few days ahead of the announcement. So, if you’re curious to see how the Sony A7c will look, you don’t have to wait for Tuesday. Let’s take a look at the images and the specs that have been revealed so far.
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.
