Olympus hasn’t been doing quite well in terms of revenue. This started a rumor that the company is soon closing its camera business within less than a year, but it looks like it will remain just a rumor. No, Olympus cameras aren’t going anywhere, and the company itself has now officially confirmed it.
DSLR vs mirrorless debate aside, the Nikon D750 is a fantastic camera for what it costs (especially now). It’s been one of their most popular models of DSLR since its initial launch, and I still see people buying them regularly today. But the D750 is getting a little long in the tooth now.
The Nikon D750 was announced in 2014, and I was already hearing rumours of a replacement model as early as 2016 at Photokina. In the three years since then, it’s been pretty much radio silence when it came to a D750 replacement, but now Nikon Rumors has posted a list of possible specs, with a release date set for some time in 2020.
Rumor has it that Olympus could shut down its camera business. The latest financial results are not stellar, and some reports say that the company could close its camera division as soon as next year.
It’s being rumoured that DJI is getting ready to announce the Mavic 3 drone in January 2020. Drone DJ reports that they’ve received several rumours that all seem to back each other up in the last week or so. They also say that the recently reported Mavic Mini may be officially announced as soon as the end of this month.
Well, that didn’t seem to take long. According to a report on Canon Rumors, Canon has already added an EOS R Mark II to their internal roadmap, along with an EOS 5D Mark V DSLR. CR didn’t say exactly where the information came from, just that they were not provided with a timeline for the roadmap, although they don’t expect either of them to come along before Q4 of 2020.
Although Samsung isn’t the first to embed their own 108-megapixel sensor inside one of their phones, they may prove to produce the best implementation. That implementation is said to be coming in the Samsung Galaxy S11 flagship phone to be announced next year. And not only that, but it will also see a second camera with a 5x optical periscope-style telephoto lens.
It looks like the rumours of Nikon bringing out a 60-megapixel mirrorless camera might be coming true. With the popularity of the D850, it’s not surprising that Nikon would be looking to beef up their mirrorless lineup with a high-resolution camera. And after the announcement of the Sony A7R IV, and Nikon’s tendency toward Sony sensors, 60-megapixels was not out of the realm of possibility.
According to screenshots obtained by Nikon Rumors, though, it looks like it’s actually coming. The images show an “FX” system with a resolution of 9552 x 6364 pixels (60.07-megapixels). They also show the possibility of 16-bit NEF raw files, too.
Astrophotography-specific versions of cameras aren’t all that uncommon for camera companies to announce. Nikon’s done it in the past with the D810a and a few others, and so has Canon with the EOS 20Da in 2005 and the EOS 60Da in 2010. Now, Canon is looking to update, with an Astrophotography version of the EOS R mirrorless camera, according to a leaked manual.
