Photography RUMORS

  • Let’s start with Canon. I didn’t think Canon would make a G12, but there appears to be some life i the G11 still. So, here is the G11 update (G12) apparently scheduled for September like all the others. Back Illuminated Sensor and HD Video. Is anyone surprised?
  • The Cano S100. This should be the minor update to the very good S90. As above.
  • The Canon SX30 with a take the average performing 20x zoom lens they currently have on the SX20 to 24x zoom. Yippee. I hope they stay with the double AA batteries at least, but news is they are moving to lithium.
  • The D10 upgrade I spoke about previously is coming as well. 5x zoom to match the likes of Panasonic and Olympus. The D10 was never a good seller, so we’ll see what they’ll do here. I think it will be more of the same though.
  • Nikon apparently has 3 different models of an interchangeable lens camera in testing and evaluation. Not really surprising, but whether it’s true or not is another story. I’m hoping for a 1″ type sensor. This would be ideal, and leave the high image quality stuff to the SLR’s. I want portability damn it!!!!
