Some Nikon mirrorless tidbits (via Nikonrumors).

Unlike Sony Nikon isn’t leaking any bit fo info about their upcoming mirrorless cameras. Our friends over at Nikonrumors can give us only some bits of info about the camera:
There is a good chance that more than one version/model of the new mirrorless camera wil be announced at the same time
The camera body will be very small, very compact, with a clean industrial design
Built-in high resolution EVF
Many video features
Compatible with F-mount lenses
The sensor will be slightly smaller than Micro Four Thirds (probably 17mm in diameter, 2.6x crop factor)
Four lenses to be released, one of them will be a pancake, the second will be a super zoom
Phase and contrast-detect AF
Camera code/project name: X810

P.S.: My bet is that the camera will be called Nikon Coolpix Pro ;)

Triple leak shows all new NEX lenses coming from Sony!

Sony cannot keep one single secret! Now even full size images of the upcoming three NEX lenses have been leaked! Click on the images to enlarge. As I already told you the Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 will cost around $999, the 55-210mm f/4-6.3 OSS will cost $299 and the 50mm f/1.8 OSS will cost $349.

There is also a nice size comparison (Thanks PaulPI!):


The new LA-EA2 adapter from Sony merges the two world (DSRL and Mirrorless)

Sony probably made the very first big step that will bring the DSLR world closer to the new Mirrorless system. The image here on top shows the upcoming new LA-EA2 adapter with built-in translucent mirror. This will allow you to use all A-mount lenses with fast phase detection autofocus on your NEX camera. Usually autotofucus speed was considered one of the main advantages of the DSRL system over the Mirrorless system. But the recent improvement made by Panasonic (with the ) and Olympus () and the new Sony adapter are closing the gap.

The product roadmap for August/September

Based on the rumors floating around the web this could be the upcoming new mirrorless products. As you can see Sony will announce a huge ammount of cameras and lenses! As usual on the roadmap…Canon is missing!

Samsung NX200 to be announced on September 5th!

According to three of our very trusted sources Samsung will finally announce the new NX200 compact camera on September the 5th! One of the sources said the camera looks a bit like the EX-1 compact camera. Another source told us that Samsung delayed the NX20 announcement from July to September because they wanted to implement a new 20 Megapixel sensor (instead of the rumored 18 Megapixel sensor).

Another source wrote: “It could be release on Android Market and Samsung Apps with the NX200 and would allow the NX camera control through the Android/Bada phones/tabs like the P&S SH100, so it could suggest the NX cameras would come with WiFi connection.

Stay tuned! This is going to be a very hot rumor time (Sony, Nikon, Panasonic and Samsung will annoucne mirrorless “stuff”).
