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.
Well, I had a feeling this one might be coming. With anticipated price drop on the GFX 50S and rumours of slightly more budget-friendly GFX 50R, a new 100MP body was almost certainly on the cards. Now, according to Fuji Rumors, the Fuji GFX 100S will be announced on September 25th during the press briefing at Photokina 2018. Or at least, they’ll be announcing the development of it.
At least, that’s what the latest rumours say. 43Rumors has put up a list of “confirmed” and possible specs for a potential upcoming full frame mirrorless camera from Panasonic. The specs do look very impressive, and quite logical given Panasonic’s reputation amongst filmmakers and video creators.
With all of the mirrorless stuff going on recently, it’s easy to forget about the little GoPro. But it seems that they’re still here, and they’re getting ready to launch the Hero 7. Unlike the past couple of generations, though, it’s not one camera, but three. With Session discontinued, and the Karma completely dead, it looks like GoPro are going back to their old ways.
You can tell Photokina’s coming. The announcement rumours are coming through thick and fast right now. Since the Nikon Z6/Z7 announcement, we’ve seen full frame mirrorlesss announcement rumours for Canon and Panasonic. And we’ve already seen one from Fuji for the impending X-T3.
But it looks like Fuji has another trick up their sleeve. The Fujifilm GFX 50R, a new “affordable” medium format mirrorless camera. Fuji Addict reports that it’s expected to be announced on September 23rd, and the first photo of the new camera has been leaked on Weibo.
Well, this was unexpected. Panasonic is apparently going to announce their first full frame mirrorless camera this month, in only three weeks. Yes, a full frame Panasonic mirrorless camera. At least, that’s according to 4/3 Rumors. Apparently, the camera will be officially announced on September 25th, but if this is indeed true, I’ll bet a certain website will have leaks available before then.
According to serial-leakers Nokishita, Canon’s new mirrorless camera will be announced at some point during the next four weeks. They’ve just posted a list for new product announcements coming in September that includes a new “EOS R” camera, along with four “RF” mount lenses, along with a few EF and EF-M lenses.
It’s not much of a surprise, given that tomorrow’s supposed to be the official announcement, but now we’re seeing more Nikon Z6/7 leaks. This time it’s a photo of one in the real world, and something of a specs list, along with a price for the Z7 (no word on the Z6 yet).
It looks like the Mavic 2 won’t be the only new version of the DJI Mavic being announced by DJI. Droning On reports that a new “Mavic Enterprise” model may be on the way, too, after posting some leaked photos. This drone seems to have various attachments that can be added to add various functionality to the drone.
