On Friday February 6 Canon will announce also a new G3x camera. It's rumored to have those specs:
CanonWatch leaked an info about a possible Canon-Sony partnership to develop a new 50,6 Megapixel sensor. One to be used for the Canon 5Ds and one to be used for the Sony A7rII. And today the image of the 5Ds leaked out via Digicameinfo along the sensor specs:
50.6MP full-size CMOS sensor
5DS R is a low-pass filter has been canceled
The body is magnesium alloy
Dust and water sealed
Dual processor DIGIC6
Regular sensitivity ISO100-6400
Continuous shooting 5 frames / sec.
High precision 61-point AF
EOS iTR AF
150,000 pixel RGB + IR photometry sensor
Added “fine detail” to the Picture Style
1.3x and 1.6x crop shooting mode

Now we will have to see if the mirrorless Sony A7rII will have similar specs!
Canon will announce the new EOS-M3 next week and those could be the specs according to CanonWatch:
Dual Pixel CMOS AF III
Automatic shooting modes
ISO 100-12,800 range

Fujirumors is again sure that Fuji is developing a new larger than APS-C sensor camera:
Fuji is working on a bigger sensor camera. The source would like to specify, that the release of this bigger sensor size camera is everything else but imminent (so don’t expect it to come anytime soon). We are just in the early stages of its development. But, always according to this source, Fujifilm is already paving the way for its arrival, since some of the recently announced/released Fujinon XF lenses are already designed to cover the bigger sensor.
Would be nice to have a real Sony FE competitor! But for now even if the rumor is correct it doesn't sound like this will come within 2015 :(
Just like the A7 also the A7r will be replaced soon. At least according to a highly trusted source. The new A7rII will have a new High Resolution sensor of around 50 Megapixels!
I don't know yet if the camera will be announced at Cp+ or 1-2 months later in Spring...
We got word from an anonymous source that Sony will announce the new Sony A7000 at CES in early January. And it will cost $699 body only which is only $50 more than the current A6000 price. But I guess A6000 price will drop $50-100 til January...
I got this rumor from a very good Samsung source:
Not sure they'll succeed in doing this, but at nx team they are doing their best to get the nx400 ready for the cp+ show in February.
Confirmed the same sensor and AF system as nx1. No weather sealing, smaller buffer (but much bigger than older models).
Would certainly be nice if it becomes true!
It's a long time we are all waiting to get a proper X-PRO 1 successor. I guess the camera will be finally announced during 2015. Fujirumors is spilling out first rumors about the camera:
- APS-C sensor (TS + ASwN + AS)
– 24MP sensor (ASwN) – More than 16MP (ASwN)
– available early/first half of 2015 (NeS)
– tilt screen (AS)
– WiFi (AS)
– Non organic ASP-C X-Trans sensor (ORS)
– Price about 20% to 30% more expensive than the X-T1 (AS)
(TS= trusted source / NeS =New Source / AS = Anonymous Source / AswN = anonymous source with nick-name / SRP = source who was right in the past, but not yet trusted / ORS = other rumor sites)

That is likely the most exciting new compact camera launched at Photokina. And it's...a smartphone! The Panasonic CM1 has a 1 inch(!) sensor inside and a gorgeous little 28mm f/2.8 Leica lens on it. It's going ot be sold in France and Germany only but I think this could become a real hotseller everywhere! So hurry Panasonic, launch worldwide preorders as soon as it gets!
After many months of work and lot of issues to solve our first beta of the new MirrorlessRumor theme is online.
The first thing you have to know is that this isn't just a redesign. We completely rethinked the way a rumor site should work!
What I learned from these years on MirrorlessRumors is that:
1) There are many mirrorless camera owners that have the knowledge and passion to share interesting news. They can finally do that directly without having to contact the administrators!
2) For me (the admin) it is impossible to be online 24h per day. And with your help I can avoid to miss important news or rumors. This will keep the site always up to date.
From now on this becomes a community where everyone can post directly news and rumors! To do so you are kindly invited to become a member of this site. Check out what you can do by clicking on the Member Panel you see on top right of the site (it shows only after your registration and login).
How it works and what you can do:
1) You can submit articles that will be reviewed by our admins (for now this is just...me). If approved they will get online.
2) You can comment articles
3) You will get votes for approved posts (100 points) and 1 point for every like on your posts or comments (or -1 point if someone dislikes)
4) If you want and I can trust you...than you can ask to become an admin. As admin you can write posts without my moderation and review other members articles.
What do you gain by joining the community?
1) You can promote your work, your sites and let the community know who you are! You are free to write post and link back to your Blog and Portfolios. Use MR to get known!
2) Less trolls. Now only approved members can comment and heavy trolls will be first warned and eventually kicked out if they don't follow the very basic rules of respect.
...and many more "reasons" to join will be online soon!
This is just a very early beta. We need to launch the site as it is to check out if everything works fine before we do keep adding features. So please, join the site, try the features and I hope you will like what we have done so far!
Thanks a lot!
