There has been talk for a while now about two new full frame cameras expected to be announced by Sony in the coming weeks.
According to the latest set of rumors from Northlight Images the 5D Mark IV will only be released once the 5DS/R is “shipping in reasonable numbers”, but either way it will not be before the fall of 2015.
A rumor from the Far East claims that the 5D Mark IV is due in August or September and will pack a 28 megapixel sensor, offer up to 9fps and pack 4K video.
The 5D Mark III replacement will also include a ‘significant’ advance in Canon’s flash control capabilities, as will the 1D X Mark II. These advanced capabilities will include adapters, controllers and firmware updates for certain models which will also be able to enjoy the new functionality.
There’s no word at the moment regarding built-in WiFi and GPS.
There’s no longer a question whether or not the D7200 exists, the only question is when we will finally see it.
Previous reports expected to see the camera announced just before or at the CP+ show. While that obviously didn’t happen (possibly due to the announcement being delayed), it seems that the rumors weren’t far off.
According to the latest rumors, Nikon’s next mirrorless camera will include 4K video.
The Nikon 1 J5 is expected to be announced in the next few weeks, and if this rumor is true it will be Nikon’s first camera with 4K video recording capabilities.
While Nikon DSLR users will not be getting 4K just yet, this could be good news for them as well.
Will this put pressure on Canon to Release another 4K DSLR?
Canonists have plenty to be excited about with the upcoming release of the EOS 5Ds models and the 11-24mm lens.
As of a few hours ago, and maybe not by chance, Nikonists also have something to look forward to.
Not a minute too soon, the first Nikon D5 rumor is here.
The modified infrared cut filter will allow greater transmittance of hydrogen-alpha, necessary when photographing diffuse nebulae.
Following Canon’s 20Da (2005) and 60Da (2012), this could be the first full frame DSLR optimized for astrophotography.
We have previously reported about Sony’s upcoming high-megapixel sensor. The sensor was said to pack a whopping 46MP, but would still fall behind Canon’s rumored 53MP beast.
Sony Alpha Rumors now reports that according to a “long time source”, the upcoming Sony a7RII will also enter the 50MP club.
Sony Alpha Rumors shared a juicy tidbit this morning when they announced Sony may be developing a new sensor Sony has dubbed the Active Pixel Color Sampling Sensor (APCS). Sony Alpha Rumors gave the rumor a SR4 rating, meaning the rumor came from trusted sources and will most likely be confirmed. It is expected Sony will make an announcement regarding the APCS in 2015, and as promising as the leaked spec sheets makes the sensor tech look, it might be worth the wait.
The spec sheet, below, which Sony Alpha Rumors found on CNBeta, doesn’t reveal any fine details, but it does offer some insightful statistics:
