Mirrorless camera rumors and news from Sony, Canon, Nikon and Samsung

Share

Let’s see what other brands are doing with their present or future mirrorless systems.

Sony:
Our partnerwebsite SonyAlphaRumors is certain Sony will launch the Sony (NEX???) mirrorless cameras in May. Key features: APS-C 14 Megapixel sensor, touchscreen, AVCHD recording, no Built-In IS, No Built-In flash.
The GH1 competitor will be announced in September.
Our bet is that the Sony rumors are correct!

Samsung:
Samsung is planning to release a compact NX model soon. A fake(?) image of such a camera has been spotted on k-rumors.
Our bet is that this Samsung will announce one more NX camera before Photokina!

Canon:
According to our sources Canon will not announce any mirrorless camera soon. In the meanhwile Canon useres are getting frustrated and are building their Canon mirrorless camera on their own :)
Our bet is that Canon will release their system after Photokina! Maybe by early 2011.

Nikon:
There were tons of rumors predicting a mirrorless camera release on PMA. Nothing happened.
Anyway we expect Nikon to unveil their own EVIL system at Photokina (September 2010)
