(UPDATED) This is not a new Nikon 3D mirrorless!

For over two years Samsung, Sony and Panasonic pushed the whole 3D technology (tv’s and cameras). At the end of the story the consumer response was quite unexciting. And as you may have noticed there is no more that massive 3D advertising anymore. Nikonrumors posted an image that shows a camera with dual lens system. It’s said to be a mirrorless Nikon camera. UPDATE: But it is NOT a Nikon! It is a cyclopital3d camera :)

Thanks to our readers for being so smarter than me and Nikonrumors :)

Sony launches the NEX-FS700. Panasonic to counterattack on Thursday!


We are getting closer to the NABshow in Las Vegas and Sony is the first company to announce a new mirrorless camcorder! The NEX-FS700 you see here on top looks quite..well…unbalanced with that 18-200mm E-Mount lens on it :) Sony missed it to introduce some new high quality NEX zoom lens for filmmakers. With the 18-200mm that camera is pretty much like a Tiger in prison, or a Ferrari driven by Massa or a Djokovic forced to dance ballet :)
That said here is the full press release including specs: Sony Europe. There is no info about the price yet. But early rumors said it would cost around $8,000.

But good for Sony that also Panasonic seems to not be fully awake from the hibernation. Their new 12-35mm and 35-100mm X zoom lenses have been delayed again and will hit the stores by end of summer only. nevertheless Panasonic will introduce a new AG-AF camcorder on Thursday April 5th (yes that Thursday). Also the GF5 will be announced along the new camcorder. But that is not really a surprise anymore as specs and images leaked a long while ago!

P.S.: Canon si going to introduce a new “mini” C300 camera.

Canon G1X interview at DC.watch


DC.watch (Click here) had a long interview with the team that developed the Canon G1X. Interesting that they said a G1X camera with interchangeable lens would have not been possible to develop. Panasonic proved with the 14-42mm X lens that it is possible. The Four Thirds sensor size has been used for an optimal miniaturization of the body and lenses. And than they got an easy answer about the possibility to make a G1X camera with interchangeable lens mount: “I think it’s technically possible“. Yeah of course, question is only when you will do it! :)

Amazon US will ship the Fuji X PRO 1 on Tuesday!
