These are the two next Sony FF sensors that will be sold to all camera manufacturers

SonyAlphaRumors got realiable info about the next two Full Frame sensors that will go on market in 2019:
Sensor 1:
60MP
16 channels (which is crazy, normally it should be 8),
4.6FPS@16bit
12FPS@14bit
8k30P@12bit
8K60p@10bit
4k60p@12bit
FHD300P@10bit
Sensor 2:
36MP
10FPS@16bit
60FPS@10bit
on-chip PDAF
These sensors can be bought by any company. I guess Pentax will use them first and maybe Nikon later. I doubt Canon will use them as this would mean they would have to give up their whole sensor department :)

First Olympus E-M1X specs: 20MP, 18 fps, 7+ EV stabilization and price close to $3,000!

43rumors unveiled the first specs of the new Olympus OMD E-M1X camera:

Name: E-M1X OMD camera
Sensor: 20MP

Frame rate: 18fps
7.5+ EV
Body Size: 144.37 x 146.765 x 75.345mm (body with a built in vertical grip)
High Res: Can shoot handheld High Resolution images (around 80MP)
Photography focus: Sports and Wildlife shooters
Price: close to $3,000

Launch: January 2019

And one source shared some more insights on this camera:

The camera is the perfect working tool. It’s worth the high price of $3,000, I guess from what I’ve seen. Lying in the hand like the legendary E-1 (see picture on top). It’s even better balanced than the MKII. You hardly notice the little extra weight. With the 300 F4 as well as with a 45 F 1.8 the camera sticks in your hand as if glued on.

The sensor exceeds all expectations, as does the stabilizer. The camera has 3 types of high res shoots. What really pleases me is that finally the charging via 15 V USB port works. Then I can finally charge my Powerbanks via solar cells while hiking in Nepal and then connect them to the camera. But the best will be the extremely high data transfer rate when transferring live data to a server over the air.

The charger charges the battery extremely fast, thanks for the investment of an additional $4.80 in development. for those who have waited a long time, the mc-20 also comes. So, look forward to the launch of the camera at the end of january 2019 and 2 more “small cameras” next year. You will smile when you see them.

No doubt Olympus will make a great camera but the E-M1X price is close to the Sony A7rIII and Nikon Z7 Full Frame cameras…will Olympus really sell enough of E-M1X cameras to make some profit?

Yongnuo announces the development of a new mirrorless system camera!

Well what a surprise! A chinese manufacturer is attempting what current “classic” camera makers are NOT doing. Yongnuo is developing a mirrorless system camera running on Android and with integrated 4G capability.

Yongnuo posted the image of this camera with a contest on Facebook. The contest ends in January which means that at CES we are likely to learn all details about it. It’s unclear what mount they will use and I guess the Canon 14mm EF lens is attached with an adapter on the camera.

Nice! What do you think about this concept? And what mount do you hope it has?

Pentax is coming with a “Big surprise” next year!

Well known and very reliable Pentax source “Asahi Man” just shared this on the Dpreview forum:

It’s time to put this senseless speculation to an end…
Nope,Pentax will not going out of photo business…
There is a very, very internal roadmap…. Cameras and lenses…
A nice fullframe line up is in sight, no sign for going out of business.
Next year is the big anniversary,don’t forget this point.
I know,the most forum users here, will be surprised.

My speculation is that also Pentax will launch a new Full Frame Mirrorless next year. I hope they will noin one of the existing FF mirrorless systems. I really cannot see them competiting all alone against the big giants.
