When it comes to upcoming gear, some interesting images and specs have leaked in the past few days. After a new Canon camera and lenses, there are now some leaked photos and specs of the new Fujifilm X-T30.
Oh yeah, that’s a whole lotta glass! New images have come from Nokishita showing five new Sigma Art, Sport & Contemporary series lenses. Two of these I suggested we may see soon after the recent Sigma Cinema Lens announcement, and one’s a very long-awaited and much-anticipated hunk of glass. But there are also a couple of surprises.
Here is something to get your Saturday night going. nokishita-camera.com, a site that is usually pretty reliable, just shared what they say are the full frame mirrorless Canon EOS R photos and specs:
Leaks happen all the time. Often they’re through anonymous sources, and occasionally a distributor lets something slip. But it’s rarely by the manufacturer themselves. This time, though, it seems that Fujifilm EU has accidentally leaked the complete specs for its upcoming X-T100 camera. The page was quickly taken down, but not before Google managed to snag a copy in its cache.
The leak was spotted by serial leakers Nokishita. They posted a copy of the basic specs, along with a links to cached content. For all intents and purposes, the X-T100 seems to basically be a Fuji X-A5, but with an EVF, 3-way tilting touchscreen and a bigger buffer.
Like most manufacturers, DJI tests its products before they go out the door to ensure as much as possible that they’ll work as intended. They can’t find every fault, but if they do spot an issue, they can remedy it before it’s sold. Unlike most products, most of DJIs can record video. Testing those recording features, and drone gimbals means they have to shoot footage.
Occasionally, some of that footage slips through the cracks and gets shipped out to users. I’ve built drones before, but I think if I had to build them all day long, and only be involved in one small step of the process, I’d probably end up as bored as this guy.
A little more information is coming out on the two new Nikon KeyMission 80 bodycam, and KeyMission 170 action cam. The most obvious one being that the KeyMission 80 appears to be coming in multiple colour options. I’m not quite sure what’s going on with the silver & leather look one, though. Perhaps it’s supposed to be “retro”. You know, to remind you of those old school bodycams from the 60s and 70s.
Still, both Nokishita and Digicame-info are reporting sets of specs, and both have released new images of the cameras. Interestingly, it appears that even though the KeyMission 170 is natively waterproof without an external housing, one is being made. If the image is accurate, the housing increases the depth to 40m (or 132ft).
If I had to take a wild guess, I would say that DJI will uncover their next drone in Photokina in two weeks, but some quadcopter-oriented blogs are already sharing leaked images and info.
According to heliguy the next DJI consumer drone will be called the DJI Mavic. It will also completely change its core design. bye bye X-shaped massive drone and hello foldable, compact, ready to fly design.
Sigma already has a steady collection of ‘Art’ lenses on the market, but it looks like they have a few more up their sleeves for 2016.[Read More…]
Canon shooters have been impatiently waiting for the EOS-1D X replacement, especially since the official announcement of the Nikon D5, and while the company still hasn’t released any official information, we’ve got the first photos and leaks specs of the soon-to-be-released monster of a camera.
The official announcement will likely take place next week, but until then – does it live up to your expectations?
