Adobe Photoshop turns 20 tomorrow, February 19, 2010. It’s kind of amazing to think that it’s been around for that long. While DSLRs really just began to flourish 5 or 6 years ago, Photoshop has been kicking for four times as long. There is a whole lot of celebrating and special events coinciding with Photoshop’s 20th anniversary. There are plenty of links in the press release below that can point you to ways to connect with the Photoshop community if you’re interested. [click to continue…]
Update #2: As of 1/4/10, the Samsung NX10 has been officially announced. For more details, click here.
Update: After this post was published, Samsung contacted me and requested the addition of the following statement: This information was not supplied by Samsung and does not represent an official announcement of the NX10. Final technical specifications and details regarding the camera system will be made available by authorized Samsung representatives at a later date, with the official launch of the product.
It looks like some images of a production model of the Samsung NX10 have leaked out onto the web via DPR forums. The above image shows the smaller body design with no mirror in between the lens mount and the 14.6-megapixel sensor.
You can also see the video setting on the mode dial in the other images in the DPR forum. It looks like a pretty nice design; however, not quite as small as you might expect from a mirrorless body.
We’ve been waiting a long time to get hands on a production model from the Samsung NX series. It looks like we may be getting close to that actually happening. Hopefully, we’ll see a release by the time CES 2010 rolls around and get to play with this new camera.

Canon has put up a teaser site for the release of their new model, which is all but certain to be the 5D replacement.
I’ll leave the guesswork up to you. Place your questions, comments and derogatory remarks in the comments below.
Update: Another teaser shot from Canon Japan via Engadget:
Muller Photo, a French electronics seller, has posted product pages for the Sony A900 and Canon EOS 7D. While neither page divulges anything regarding the cameras’ specifications, Muller Photo lists prices for both cameras.
- Their price for the Canon EOS 7D is EUR 2990 (Source).
- And, their price for the the Sony A900 is EUR 2490 (Source).
Whether Muller Photo knows something the rest of us don’t remains to be seen. Muller Photo could just be capitalizing on some free press by listing these product pages.
Stay tuned to Photography Bay’s coverage of these cameras for latest as we lead up to Photokina 2008:
