First Nikon Z50 APS-C specs. To be announced on October 10?

Nikon will finally announce their first APS-C Z-mount camera on October 10. Here are the rumored specs:

Nikon Z50 price: €900 in most European countries (around $980)
Nikon Z50 kit price with the new Nikkor Z 16-55mm (or 16-50mm) f/3.5-6.3 VR lens: €1,100 (around $1,200)
The Nikon Z50 will have a rear screen that can be tilted downwards for selfies but it will not work with selfie sticks
4k video
Maximum shutter speed: 1/4000
The Nikon Z50 will be a direct Sony a6400 camera competitor
20MP APS-C sensor (based on the D500 sensor)
Single SD card slot
3″ pivoted LCD
11 fps
No IBIS
Fixed EVF (not removable EVF as described in the latest design patents)
New Nikon EN-EL25 battery
Announcement date: October 10th
The official announcement could be as early as next week
The Z50 will be the equivalent of the D7xxx DSLR cameras
Two new APS-S mirrorless lenses: Z-Nikkor 16-55mm f/3.5-6.3 and Z-Nikkor 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3
The Nikon Z50 will look very similar to the Nikon Z1 prototype camera – it was described to me as a smaller version of the Z6/Z7

This is the first image of the new Olympus E-M5III

43rumors leaked the image of the new E-M5III that will be announced on October 17. The camera will have most of the E-M1X features for a fraction of the price. If that’s really the case I think it will sell well!

E-M5III rumor summary:
Announcement on October 17 (99% certain)
Same 20MP E-M1II sensor with 121 cross-type phase detection pixels
New processing engine
Lighter, more plasticky but still weather sealed body
Same BLS-50 battery of the PEN and E-M10 camera series (60% certain)

 

Fuji officially annunces the development of the X-PRO3. Here are the images!

Today Fuji did announce the development of the new X-PRO3. Fujirumors reports:

Fujifilm says the announcement will be on October 23, with worldwide “Fujifest” events to try it out on October 24.
Along with the Fujifilm X-Pro3, they will introduce the a new Classic Negative film simulation
It will come in three colors, the classic black as well as a DURA black and DURA silver
It will be built out of titanium, which will make it 10 times tougher than steel against scratch, almost level of sapphire.

Fuji also announced that it will make a XF 50mm f/1.0 lens instead of the previously announced 33mm f/1.0 lens. This  will allow them to make the lens 35% smaller! Here you can see the new 50mm lens versus  the much bigger 33mm lens:

Here is the official presentation video:

 

Fuji X-Pro3 will have a Dual LCD Tilt Screen!

Fujirumors leaked the sketches of  the new X-PRO3. These  are the differences with  the previous X-PRO2 model:

  • dual screen (small screen to see film simulations / EXIF data and main LCD screen) – styled like the Fujifilm SP-X here
  • with the screen on the body, you will only see the little screens box showing film simulation/EXIF data
  • open the screen, and it will only tilt down
  • no D-Pad (as we told you here)
  • On ISO dial, “H” has been replaced by “C”
  • Drive button works as Delete button
  • Play Button

Possible specs of the new Canon EOS-R High 83MP camera


Patent describing the Canon 83MP FF sensor

 

There is still no reliable info about the new Canon EOS-R High resolution camera. This is a summary of possible specs (to take with a grain of salt):

  • A slightly larger body and grip than the EOS R
  • 80mp full-frame image sensor
  • A “new style” of joystick
  • Larger LCD than the EOS R
  • Larger viewfinder than the EOS R
  • The “viewfinder” can be tilted up and down
  • Dual SD card slots
  • No video specifications are known

First leaked images of the new Leica SL2 camera with 47 Megapixels!

Nokishita just leaked this image of  the Leica SL camera. It has some small difference from the previous model (see it here). Now it has a near full body texture and a “ring” around  the mount. Also the grip seems to be slightly curved.

More important  are the changes inside:

– New 47  megapixel sensor
– Cine mode video
– 4K video

Code name of the camera seems to be”Vader” because of the low light capabilities :)

Announcement should happen pretty soon…

 

Say hello to this new Sony A9II 36MP camera!

This is the first leaked image of the Sony A9II. The 36 MP flagship camera will be announced sometimes in October. This is the camera sports photographers will use at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. No specs are known yet (a part  of the 36MP sensor).

Somehow I got the feeling the A7IV will be announced soon too. Probably before the A7sIII launch…another way to drive crazy  all those waiting for the new A7s camera :)
