If you have the Fuji X-T1, it comes with a great little hot shoe flash – the Fuji EF-X8. The bad news, however, is that you can’t easily find a replacement to order online should something happen to the little EF-X8 flash. [Read more…]
Remember the class action lawsuit that was stirring a few months back from D600 owners?
Well, it looks like a settlement has been reached and D600 owners who were part of the lawsuit now have the chance to trade in their D600 models for a new D610.
Granted, this would be rather odd timing to release a replacement for the Nikon D3 professional grade DSLR; however, Photo Rumors has info they’re calling reliable that such a replacement will be announced this Fall. The tipster says that the D3 replacement will maintain the 12.3 megapixel sensor found in the current D3, but points to the addition of a dust removal system. I would hope that any replacement to this $4k camera would have more upgrades than a dust removal system.
If there is credence to this rumor, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a feature set matched to the Nikon D300s, which purportedly will feature HD video capture. A refresh of the feature set would make more sense than the full replacement of a pro-level camera that’s 2 years into its product cycle.
Nikon D3s anyone?

I’ve seen two different sources indicate the coming of an updated Nikon 70-200mm VR lens at Photokina. Nikon Rumors published a story yesterday regarding word from a Nikon VP. Additionally, I recently read a quote from Graham Watson (renowned Tour de France photographer and Nikon shooter) as he spoke in a matter of fact way that a replacement 70-200mm lens was coming from Nikon.
The 70-200mm will be replaced in September by a newer version, the ‘N’ series – I can’t wait to get hold of one!
