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.
A few days ago, some photos leaked out of a new strobe claiming to be the Godox AD400Pro. It seems the photos were accurate, as Godox announced the strobe earlier through their Facebook page. Following on from the AD600Pro design, the AD400Pro is about as we expected it to be, but now the details are official.
Ever since Sony announced the Sony A9, people have been quite vocal about their wishlists for A7 series replacements. We’ve seen two of those appear, already. The A7R III with its massive 42.4 megapixel resolution, and the insane (for its price) Sony A7 III, with fantastic low light performance and crazy fast autofocus.
But not much has been said about the Sony A7S III. People have been asking for it, and they know what they want to see in it, too. But what may actually be coming? SAR is reporting some very cool potential specs that have been passed along to them. There aren’t many specs, but it definitely looks promising for Sony’s more video-centric “S” line.
Well, people have been wondering what would replace the Godox AD360II in the Godox flash lineup ever since the AD200 was released last year to replace the AD180. Now it seems we may have an answer, thanks to some photos posted to Facebook by “Rainbow Store-Camera“. The post and photos claim to show a new AD400Pro strobe unit.
If it is a fake, whoever’s made the images has gone to great lengths to trick everybody. so I would imagine that it’s likely real. As to when we’ll hear an official announcement, though, is anybody’s guess.
A spec sheet has been leaked to the folks at Sony Alpha Rumors about a new Sony sensor. Of course, new sensors are released all the time, so what’s so special about this one? Well, it’s a 31MP resolution APS-C sensor with a global shutter that potentially offers 4K video at up to 108 frames per second though SLVS-EC – although much lower is more likely.
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.
It seems that the Canon will finally add 4K video to the G7X line in a Mark III refresh, if a post on Canon Rumors is to be believed. It’s been a long demanded feature and the sole reason why many still choose to go with the Sony RX100 models over the G7X line for things like vlogging.
CR says that they have received some specs, but that they come from an unconfirmed source. But given the specs of the previous model G7X Mark II, the suggested specs for a Mark III incarnation don’t seem too out of line.
It’s being reported by Sony Alpha Rumors that Zeiss are planning to launch the world’s first lens with ALON lens elements. Perhaps a 35mm f/1.8 Sony FE mount pancake lens. ALON is Aluminium Oxynitride, which is essentially “transparent aluminum“. Yes, that’s right Star Trek technology is coming to lenses. Maybe.
It appears that YI Technology are about to finally release a drone. Although it’s not the one we’ve all been waiting over 18 months for. There’s still no word on what’s happening with the YI Erida, but what is coming is a new tiny Spark-like drone. The Pixie. Unlike the DJI Spark, though, this one will shoot 4K video.
While this is technically a rumour, there is a complete user manual online. It seems unlikely to go to all the trouble of creating that if the drone itself weren’t real. According to specs, it’ll shoot 4K, 1080p and 720p video with timelapse and burst mode 15MP photo features. It operates on 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz WiFi, with a suggested range of 100 metres.
Fuji Rumours are reporting that they’ve received what appear to be the first images of the fabled Fujifilm X-H1. A camera that seems to be a little more video oriented than Fuji’s previous cameras, offering even more than the X-Pro2’s new firmware update. There have been rumours of such a camera floating around for a long time now, but this seems to be the first proof that it’s actually going to be a real thing.
