Photography RUMORS

  • The biggest rumour we have is the Nikon D400 will be released on the 21st August. Expect the specifications to start coming through soon. This camera and the initial specs I’ve seen will definitely put a jolt through the lineup.
  • Canon 650D looks to be possibly around the corner, possibly mid May 2012.
  • There’s a small chance the excellent Nikkor 200mm f4 micro is going to be updated finally this year. The source of this rumour said they was surprised by this as well when it was mentioned. And that’s all I’m going to say about it.
