Fuji and Canon interview by Dpreview

Dpreview interviewed managers from Fuji and Canon.

Here are a couple of highlights of the Fuji interview:

  • Looking into 2023, the core users in the market are enthusiasts, so I think the market will remain very stable. I’m quite optimistic, but it depends on whether the industry can develop interesting products that will make a difference. It will be an ordinary year if manufacturers don’t introduce interesting products. We certainly have some introductions coming that we’re very excited about.
  • There is a potential for an X-mount video camera
  • If we made a GFX format with a fixed lens, it might be a similar gateway to our GFX system(like the X100V was), which is interesting for us.

Here are a couple of highlights of the Canon interview:

  • We will continue to “support” DSLR
  • There are customers who wish to have their camera smaller and lighter, and that demand is still strong. As long as these demands persist in the market, we will continue to support and intend to continue the M system.

Sony launches the official ZV-E1 teaser!

Sony Taiwan posted the official teaser for the ZV-E1 launch! Some testers also gave me a first feedback on this camera:

So this is the Summary of the Sony ZV-E1 specs:

  • New ZV-E1 E-mount camera is based on the Sony As7III
  • Same A7sIII 12 Megapixel sensor
  • 4k60 & 4k 120 (no crop). But it appears 120p might be coming later via firmware update
  • no pixel binning
  • 409k ISO
  • AF from a7r V but it has even better detection
  • Body overheats a lot at the moment
  • Lots of new AI features, very innovative
  • Similar body style of the ZV-E10, but in the size of the Sony A7c and with some FX3 elements
  • Price slightly below $2,500
  • Announcement on March 29, 3pm London time

There will be plenty of rumors and also possibly image leaks. So be sure to follow my new Youtube channel, Discord channel, Instagram (with funny AI images to annoy people), Facebook and Twitter to not miss news and rumors.

Shock: DPReview.com to close!

This is an incredible sad news:

Dear readers,

After nearly 25 years of operation, DPReview will be closing in the near future. This difficult decision is part of the annual operating plan review that our parent company shared earlier this year.

The site will remain active until April 10, and the editorial team is still working on reviews and looking forward to delivering some of our best-ever content.

Everyone on our staff was a reader and fan of DPReview before working here, and we’re grateful for the communities that formed around the site.

Thank you for your support over the years, and we hope you’ll join us in the coming weeks as we celebrate this journey.
