Samsung teases a new Galaxy launch as a “reimagined camera”

Samsung posted a new teaser for the new Galaxy launch on February 25. There are two interesting hints they gave us:

1) Their text says “The Camera reimagined”

2) The image on their newsletter shows an NX lens

The message of this teaser is clear: highlight the fact that the new Galaxy may have a new class leading camera module. Still, it’s nice to see them reuse a NX lens image. I still hope the day will come they will revive the NX system (just a tiny tiny tiny hope of mine).

RED and Foxconn partnership to create “affordable” 8K cameras

CEO Terry Gou from Foxconn told Nikkei that they partnered with RED:

“We will make cameras that will shoot professional-quality films in 8K resolution but at only a third of current prices and a third of current camera sizes,”

Many companies are planning to launch first 8K mirrorless camera by 2020. Just recently Panasonic announced the development of a new organic sensor with 8K and global shutter (details on 43rumors).
