The Canon EOS 850D (or Rebel T8i or Kiss X10i in other parts of the world) is expected to be announced at some point this month, either before or during CP+ in Japan. After a recent leak showed off some of the specs and a couple of “official” photos of the product, Nokishita has posted some more photos of the actual camera itself, ahead of the upcoming announcement.
The Nikon D780 announcement is expected to arrive in just three days during the opening of CES 2020 in Las Vegas. To add some weight to that announcement rumour, images purporting to be of the new camera have been leaked on Nikon Rumors.
There are no new specs to come with the images, and the photos don’t appear to be exactly like any of Nikon’s other DSLRs, so it’s possible they are legit, although the “D780” lettering looks a little strange compared to Nikon’s prior releases. They also confirm the lack of popup flash.
Canon’s known for being a little strange at times, but this one seems pretty weird, even for Canon. At least one silver and black 1DX Mark III appears to exist according to a low resolution leaked photo on Canon Rumors. They modified the image to remove the photographer, but it’s an odd-looking camera indeed.
Canon has made silver DSLRs before, but it’s usually their low-end entry-level kit, not their $5K+ flagship models. Other than the photo, there isn’t really a lot of information about it, of course, there isn’t really a lot of information out there about the usual black 1DX Mark III, either.
Godox is apparently planning to release an AD1200Pro head and pack strobe. Images have leaked on social media of what appears to be an AD1200Pro strobe, with a fairly substantial-looking pack and a small flash head. There’s been no official announcement from Godox yet, but it looks quite promising for those demanding more power on location.
The Leica Summilux-M 90mm f/1.5 ASPH lens was first rumoured way back in 2017. Since then, 26 have actually been made, according to the Leica Pocket Guide (1953-2018), and the rumours had been hotting up for a 2019 release. There’s still no official announcement from Leica yet, but the first photos have been leaked online, courtesy of Nokishita.
While Nikon’s lens roadmap is pretty clear, their intentions for future bodies isn’t, really. But Nikon has suggested that a lower entry level full frame mirrorless camera to compete with Canon’s recently announced EOS RP would be on the way. Now it looks like we might have the first leaked photo of that body, and it appears to have a name. The Nikon Z1.
A new image has leaked of Sony’s new 24mm f/1.4 GM lens. It’s expected to be officially announced at some point later today. Although this may be all that Sony announces today, so if you were hoping for the rumoured 135mm or high end “Mini A9” APS-C camera, you’ll probably be disappointed.
While Google is one of the biggest software tech giants out there, their adventures with hardware have only been going for a relatively short amount of time. Quickly, though, they’ve established themselves as a pretty serious player in the smartphone market. Although it seems they may want to become more serious about security, too.
9to5Google is reporting that a “large number of possibly stolen Pixel 3 XL” prototype phones have been put up for sale by an alleged Ukranian black market dealer. This has led to a series of leaks about the phone which, according to 9to5Google, the dealer says is basically the same as the final Pixel 3 XL will appear.
Ok, so, we should be judging cameras on how they see the world, not how they appear to the world, but this new Nikon mirrorless camera looks pretty ugly from looking at these leaked photos. I’ll reserve final judgement until I actually get one in my hands and see how it handles, but so far it’s kinda funny looking.
It seems like every lens manufacturer’s pushing hard on the Sony FE mount these days. Sigma have 9 of their lenses coming out in a native FE mount. Zeiss look set to announce a new Batis 40mm f/2.0 soon, and now Samyang. There’s not really anything known about the lens other than what we can see in the pictures. But we do have pictures, thanks to Nokishita.
