Samsung shows the upcoming new NX lenses!

I was wondering why Samsung didn’t show anything new at CP+. But here they are the upcoming new NX lenses. Form left to right you have the 50-200mm, 18-200mm , 85mm f/1.4, 60mm Macro, 16mm f/2.8 and the Silver 20mm and 20-50mm lenses. You can find more pictures at SLRclub here and here. Those are all nice lenses but my question now is: Will there be third party lenses too? Sony and Micro Four Thirds just got the support from Sigma, Zeiss and Cosina. So will Samsung do everything alone?

Someone else goes mirrorless….Gizmon!

There is a new and unexpected player in the mirrorless market, Gizmon! The name of their camera is Half-D and you can find more about it at gizmon-image.com. The camera has three different apsect ratio, landscape, square and vertical. Ten different color modes (like sepia) and it can take videos. It comes along a macro lens, three fisheye converters and a “tunnel-effect” lens. If google translate didn’t fool us than the camera shoulg have 2 Megapixels, a 1,5 inch LCD, ISO 100-400, VGA video. And look at the image below…it’s so small! And yes, it really looks like a mini copy of the ! Image samples are available here: cameratalk.jp.

What do you think about it?

Nikon sends a new message in a bottle!

Nikon is again dropping short pieces of messages about their upcoming mirrorless launch. In an Interview at ORF (Austrian television) Wolfgang Lutzky from Nikon Austria said that Nikon would enter the mirrorless market and they could give more news about that at the next presentation of financial results in March. P.S.: Nikon’s financial year ends on March 31, 2011.

That statement fits perfectly with what our sources told us. The new mirrorless ystem will be launched in April!
