It exists, but will it come to market?
We have confirmed that a test camera with around 80mp is definitely in the wild. A few things to note about the camera. It’s apparently in an EOS-1 body and has a larger than 3.2″ LCD on the back.

5Dmk3 rumours - Collection of info and links about the replacement for the Canon 5D mark2 the 5D mark 3 or 5D X...
20th We've hearing of NDAs expiring on the 2nd of March.
The head of Fujifilm's camera division has suggested the company may make a return to interchangeable lens cameras. In an interview with news agency Reuters, Takeshi Higuchi stressed the importance of launching 'luxury' models to help establish the company as a high-profile brand. In addition he discusses the company's reasoning for looking beyond China for manufacturing. However, his comments about having the in-house capabilities to develop its own cameras may reduce the speculation about the company producing models for pre-existing camera systems.
According to Quesabesde the Nikon D700 replacement is postponed till October 2011 and the Nikon D4 is expected to be announced in early 2012. This delay was caused by the earthquake in Japan.
In the past few weeks I have been receiving conflicting reports on a potential delay for the D800 and I am not convinced that this is the case. I still believe there will be a major Nikon announcement in late August. The Nikon mirrorless solution is probably delayed based on previous statements from Nikon representatives indicating a potential March/April announcement.
Approximately 4 hours ago, a new lens appeared on Nikon Imaging website: Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.8G. I am still not sure if this is a mistake or this lens is really officially announced. No major website has reported this news yet and there is no official press release from Nikon. The lens is not listed on other Nikon websites.
One of the sample images posted on Nikon’s website is from Deborah Sandidge (published online on her blog on March 18th, 2011). The images were removed few minutes after publishing the links online. Blog post is still available on Google cache.
A week ago there was a post on the Chinese forum Xitek that this lens will be announced soon.
- A fast, single-focal-length lens with normal 50mm focal length
- Large maximum aperture of f/1.8
- Newly developed optical system employing an aspherical lens element
- Silent Wave Motor (SWM) realizes quiet AF operation
- Two focus modes are available — M/A (quick switching from AF to MF) and M (manual focus)
Could this new lens rumor be the premise of a cheap FX Nikon DLSR?
I am not sure where those Nikon D5100 images came from – my guess is that they were part of the press release from Nikon Romania.
Here is a more detailed list of the Nikon D5100 specs:
- Full HD video 1920×1080p at 30p
- 16.2MP sensor
- New HDR feature
- New special effects during video (selective colors, miniature effect, etc.)
- The already rumored Night Vision option with ISO up to 102400
- EXPEED 2 processor
- Standard ISO 100-6400
- Stereo mic input
- 4 fps
- Quiet shutter mode
- Side swivel LCD screen
- EN-EL14 battery
"Nikon will soon announce the D3200 DSLR camera which will replace the current D3100 ($549). The expected specs are:
The Nikon D3200 will have some kind of a Wi-Fi connection that is supposed to offer few very interesting new features
"I don't know much about those two images of a Phase One 645DF camera with a Leaf Aptus-II 12 digital back mounted on a video rig with focus pulling and external mic, but I do know that back in 2010 there were some rumors that Phase One is working on a medium format digital back with live view and RAW video recording."
"Those are the first pictures of the upcoming Nikon D800 DSLR camera. The specs so far are exactly the same as reported previously (there are some new updates in this list):
The big announcement in August will be for a new Nikon D4 and D400 DSLR cameras. The Nikon D700 replacement will probably be announced at a later date, maybe even in 2012. I know that this is not the news most of you want to hear, but it actually makes perfect sense because the Nikon D3 was announced together with the D300 back in August of 2007. Nikon is a very methodical company and if the D3 and D300 pro level DSLRs are on a 4 years life cycle, the D700 should be replaced in 2012 since it was announced in 2008. Nikon also likes to announce higher end models before using the same tech in a low end versions (for example 12MP DX sensor in D300->D90, 16.2MP DX sensor in D7000->D5100, 12MP FX sensor D3->D700), so don’t expect the Nikon D700 replacement to come out with a better technology before the D4. The D300s replacement will probably use the new 24MP sensor from Sony which further confirms this rule.
Another question here is: does the “S” update count as a replacement? The D3 and the D300 were “replaced” by the D3s and D300s but for the most part those were just minor updates. The D3s and D300s were announced in 2009, approximately two years after the D3/D300. There was never a D700s. Maybe there is still a possibility for a deviation of the D700 this year (let’s say D700s: D3s sensor + video), but my source was clear that the “real” D700 replacement will come out in 2012.

The czech manual of the NEX-C3 has been leaked…by Sony itself! On Sony czech website you will find username and password to download the NEX-C3 manual at the following link: http://sony.zstudio.cz/PERSONAL_VIDEO_FOTO-VIDEO/NEX-C3.
And the 30mm f/3.5 macro lens for NEX gets leaked to on Sony Service Canada (Check SonyAlphaRumors). And the lens gets a price on Camara.fr (259 Euro). Sounds like a Sony announcement is imminent!

An anonymous source just sent us the following info. We received similar hints form other sources too that’s why we are going to post it here.
According to the source the NX200 and NX20 will be announced in July. Both camera will be in Stock in September. They will share the same new 18 Megapixel sensor that supports 1080p video recording. Samsung will announce the new 2012 lens roadmap in September. There should be a total of 5 new lenses in 2012.
One more thing: Both, the NX20 and NX200 will have a complete new design!
Today I received some information from a reliable source that Nikon indeed will be targeting professional users with their mirrorless solution rather than the consumer market. I was told that the announcement will be in the next few weeks. I already wrote about a potential new product release in late March/early April, so something is definitely coming.
