Recent rumors suggest that the Canon 7D Mark II’s release date may have slipped a bit due to manufacturing issues of the Dual Pixel AF sensor for the camera. The excellent Dual Pixel AF we first saw in the Canon 70D and the Canon 7D Mark II is rumored to have a higher performance version of the sensor. [click to continue…]
Canon EOS M2
The Canon’s EOS M remains the only mirrorless camera available for Canon’s US customers even though the EOS M2 was released in December 2013 for Japan and China. That may change, however, if rumors of the EOS M3, due later this year, turn out to be true. [click to continue…]
Now that the Nikon D4S has been officially released, it’s time we start seeing some more rumors on the D800s (and maybe a D400 somewhere down the line?). For now, the latest batch of rumors point to mild upgrades for the D800s similar to those found in the D4S. Check them out below. [click to continue…]
New rumors suggest that the Nikon D800 may be getting a refreshed in a similar manner that we saw with the Nikon D4s. The updated models is rumored to boost the sensor performance using the same 36MP sensor and a boosting in processing power with the new Expeed 4.
No specifics have surfaced in terms of release time frame (Photokina would be a safe bet) or pricing.

A tipster points to CP+ in February as the release timeframe for the rumored Fuji X-T1. Additionally, the X-Pro2 (successor to the popular X-Pro1) is being saved for Photokina in September according to our tipster.
The Photokina release for the X-Pro2 seems quite a stretch to me, since it was rumored to be pushed back from CES earlier this month. Of course, we’ll know soon enough if it doesn’t show up in February at CP+.
If you have additional tips to offer on the Fuji X-T1 or X-Pro2, please pass that along to us via the contact form.
Rumors of a medium format system in the works for Canon continue to churn as we are still a year away from the anticipated release at Photokina 2014. Keith over at Northlight Images has received word that the rumored medium format system from Canon will be part of the EOS system, “since a key aspect of the MF project is how it positions the Canon camera brand ‘as a whole’ in the market in years to come.”
The EOS branding makes lots of sense given the recent addition of the EOS M line. Additional rumors suggested that current EF lenses would be compatible with Canon EOS medium format bodies; however, that doesn’t seem quite right given the image circle and flange distance requirements. It seems more likely that Canon medium format lenses would be compatible with the EF mount for the current DSLR formats.
