Looks like Canon isn’t the only one on fire when it comes to announcing new gear in 2020 (at least judging from the rumors). After a long break, it seems that we’ll see as many as three new drones from DJI this year. And according to the reports, the first one could hit the market in February.
It looks like we might be getting close to an announcement for the Fujifilm X-T4 according to a report on Fuji Rumors. They say they’ve received some good information that they’ve “triple checked”, and the X-T4 is not only coming soon, but it will have in-body-image stabilisation (IBIS).
Nokishita posted a screenshot showing the registration of Fujifilm cameras with the codes FF190005 and FF190004 (expected to be the X-T3 replacement) with China’s MIIT on January 8th. But Fuji Rumors says that an official announcement could come as soon as next month.
Rumours of a Nikon D750 replacement, which won’t be called the D760, but either the D770, D780 or D790 (the current favourite seems to be D780), have been around for a few weeks now, and the camera itself may be officially announced as early as next week, a report suggests.
Nikon Rumours believes we might hear an official announcement and say they have an unconfirmed date for January 7th, 2020. That would be the start of CES. It might be unusual for Nikon to announce a camera at a general consumer electronic show rather than one specific to photography like CP+ or Photokina, but it wouldn’t be unheard of – especially as Nikon isn’t going to Photokina.
According to a Tweet sent out by Nokishita, the upcoming Canon EOS 1DX Mark III along with the WFT-E9 wireless file transmitter have been added to Canon’s latest product list. They believe that they have been added to the list a little ahead of an official announcement in anticipation of the Christmas and New Year holidays.
That they’ve been added to the list, though, suggests that we may hear an official announcement very soon. This may happen in as little as two weeks, when CES kicks off on January 7th.
When images first leaked of a white Leica, I thought it looked absolutely stunning. I knew it was going to be well outside of my budget, but I didn’t expect the price tag it’s been given. The White Edition Leica M10-P has now been officially announced. A US price was not released, but the UK price is £12,750, which works out to around $16,700. Of course, you don’t just get the camera for this price. No, that would be silly. You also get a silver chrome Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH lens.
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.
Cards on the table, I’ve never really seen the appeal of Leica vs the other brands. Or, to put it more accurately, I’ve never really got why they cost so much more than other cameras offering a wider range of features. I’ve never had any desire to even own a Leica, but this kinda makes me want to.
Nokishita has posted some images of a white (except for the little red Leica logo) Leica M10 to Twitter as an “unpublished limited model”. They’ve also posted photos of an M10-P “Ghost” edition they say will also be announced at some point soon.
One of the biggest grips about the original Canon EOS R and the EOS RP mirrorless cameras, along with only one card slot and the 4K crop, was the lack of in-body image stabilisation (IBIS). Canon’s word on the subject was basically that they didn’t feel their IBIS tech was at a point yet where it was worth implementing. They just weren’t happy with it.
Canon promised it was going to be coming at some point in the future to EOS R cameras, though, and now that future seems to be close if Canon Watch is correct. There have been rumours that IBIS is coming to the 1DX Mark III, but now it seems one may be coming to the next EOS R mirrorless camera, too.
Since the initial and somewhat vague “development announcement” in September, Nikon has remained pretty tight-lipped about the impending Nikon D6. They haven’t even said when they’re announcing it, yet, although all indicators pointed towards a date in early 2020, following on from the January 6th announcement dates in 2012 and 2016 for the D4 and D5 respectively.
But it seems the announcement may come in a tad later, according to a report on Nikon Rumors. They say they’ve been hearing February 12th, 2020 as a potential announcement date more than once, although it could be for an internal presentation rather than a public announcement. But they do have an updated list of rumoured specs, too.
Canon’s EOS 5DS and 5DSR have proven quite popular amongst landscape, architecture, product, macro and other photographers who demand high resolutions over speed. But they were released in 2015 and Canon has shown no indication that they’ll be replaced by an upcoming DSLR. A high-resolution EOS R mirrorless model, however, has been rumoured for a while now.
Now it looks like the folks at Canon Rumors have managed to get their hands on some possible specs for the new high-res mirrorless, which they’re dubbing the “EOS Rs”. Their source also claims to have shot with a prototype of the new model, and that we can expect an announcement possibly as soon as February.
