There is a digital back for 35mm analogue cameras on Kickstarter. I really don’t know why you should do this :)
Canonrumors reports that the new Full Frame mirrorless that could be launched by end 2018 might have a newly developed sensor. This sensor is optimized for that specific camera. Canonwatch summed up the rumors we got so far:
- Dedicated full frame CMOS sensor
- Different sources and sites were reporting that early prototypes exist, at least to be tested inside Canon’s labs. This intel came in 2016 and early 2017.
- Canon is possibly working on a full-frame mirrorless camera with EF mount. There have been rumors saying that Canon is delaying this camera because of issues in implementing the EF mount. There is a lot of talk about this. If Canon manages to engineer a full-frame mirrorless camera with EF mount, thus allowing us to use our beloved EF lenses on a smaller and hopefully performing body, it will be a winner. Imagine what you could do with a MILC that goes along with your EF lenses. There is serious a chance we may see this.
- The latest bit of info I got suggests Canon will announce a full-frame mirrorless camera with a sensor having a resolution of 36-38MP.
- A possible announcement date is around Photokina 2018, which happens in September.
Hasselblad announced that it’s H6D-100c digital back is now available as a “standalone”. This means you can buy this back only to use it any way you want. For example Large format shooters can use it on their cameras.
Yashica confirmed on their Youtube channel that they will launch a new camera on October 10 at 19:00 London time on Kickstarter. It’s unclear what kind of camera we can expect.
