New rumors: Sony ZV1 camera, new Fuji X roadmap and new Canon Speedlite

Three new rumors today:

1) Sony is slowly waking up from the winter sleep and on May 26 they plan to make the first of the may announcements to come. The Zv1 selfie camera will be the first (specs on SAR)

2) Fujirumors shared an updated insight on the X lens roadmap:

  • Fujinon XF 50mm f/1.0
  • Fujinon XF 70-300mm f/4-5.6
  • Fujinon X mount prime MK II Lens
  • Fujinon X mount zoom MK II Lens

3) And Canon might soon announce a new Speedlite 600EX II-RT Replacement (Canonwatch via CR).

Sony has two announcements to make: New compact camera by end of May and new FF gear by end of June

As reported on SAR Sony is finally going to announce some new products:

First we will get a new compact camera by end of May

And than we will get a new Full Frame camera and new Full Frame lenses (12-24mm f72.8 GM?) by end of June

Let’s see if Sony is able to get back some of the viral internet hype they have lost with the announcement of the Canon EOS-R5.

Yes, the Panasonic GH6 is coming….but are those the right specs?

Panasonic has been long quiet on the MFT front. But I think the time is now coming closer when we will finally get some GH6 news. And because of this rumors are starting to heat up.

This Spanish Facebook Group posted a first of rumored specs that might as well end up to be total BS:

Rumors …
Announcement of the arrival of the Lumix GH6 at the end of the year. It was planned to be announced at photokina 2020, but for what we are living these days, CP + 2021 is possibly postponed until the release date. Of the new GH6 it is commented that there will be three models, depending on their orientation. These will be GH6, GH6V and GH6X.
Some specifications would be in the absence of official public confirmation:
– Longer battery life.
– New IBIS stabilization system.
– Sensor, Attention !! Of 41 Mpx. Exactly the Sony IMX594CQR.
– Faster new generation AF system.
– It will record in RAW at 4K, 6K and Panasonic will incorporate depending on the 8K model.
It will most likely be announced in August – September 2020, to be released in early 2021.

Would love for the MFT world to see finally a high resolution sensor on a MFT camera!
