There are quite many news on the web about the new Nikon mirrorless cameras. Let’s just pickup some of them. What’s interesting are the size comparisons with other mirrorless cameras. Engadget compared the Sony NEX-C3 and the new Nikon J1 sensor size comparison (Scroll the article to see the image). Huge difference! Quesabesde compared the body size of the Olympus E-PM1 with the size of the Nikon V1.

And now it’s time for some image samples! You can find them on Fotopolis, Imaging Resource and Digitalcamerareview.

One mroe thing: The pictures of the future lenses can be seen at Photographyblog. But there is no info about specs and price, just anonymous mockups :(

Pentax Q reviews

The image on top is from Quesabesde (Click here) which wrote a full Pentax Q test. But here are plenty of more reviews and hands- on at BJPonline, Photography Blog, DPhotographer UK, Amateur Photographer and WhatDigitalCamera.

That little tiny camera is already a hotseller in Japan (See BCNranking) but I cannot imagine that camera to sell well in “western” countries. Anyway, this is up to you. My job here is to give you all latest reviews ;)

First Samsung 16mm image samples and new Samsung NX200 mockup.


The SamsungImaging website (Click here) posted the very first image samples taken with the new 16mm f/2.4 pancake. Anyway, it’s to early to give a final judgment about the optical quality. And DSLRmagazine (Click here) wrote the very first preview with all four new Samsung lenses (16mm, 60mm macro, 85mm portrait lens and 18-200mm zoom). As you know you can already preorder the Samsung pancake at BHphoto (Click here).

And according to Redcrow the NX200 wood mockup you can see at SLRclub (Click here) looks very close to the real NX200!
