DigitalRev Hints at Upcoming Canon Releases

DigitalRev have added a number of product pages to their online shop which hint at the proximity of upcoming Canon releases. So far pages have appeared for the Canon 5D Mark IV, 16-35mm f/2.8 L III Lens and 24-105mm f/4.0 L II Lens. The addition of the pages doesn’t specifically confirm the imminent arrival of these products, but we are expecting them this month, August 25th specifically so it is a positive indication that we have something to look forward too! The pages themselves don’t contain any specific information, but speculation about the 5D Mark IV in particular has...

Is This The Go-Pro Karma Drone?

last month GoPro quietly released a teaser video for the upcoming film ‘The Secret Life of Pets’, the video was well received, and in-fact caused quite a stir, although perhaps not for reasons the film’s producers would be particularly happy about. At around the 25 second mark, just before the bungee jumping Pug takes the plunge, a drone appears, a drone which is carrying a GoPro. The Internet speculation engine of course kicked into overdrive, with claim and counterclaim that this was, and this was not the forthcoming Karma Drone. The drone’s existence is not in question, we know...

Tamrom Patents 10-24mm F3.5-4.5 VC and Tamron 20mm f/2 Di VC Lenses

Two new Tamron DSLR Lens patents have been published this week, the first of which depicts a wide-angle zoom lens, the Tamron 10-24mm F3.5-4.5 VC. Tamron already produces the SP AF 10-24mm f / 3.5-4.5 DI II, so it is quite possible that this is an incremental upgrade of that lens, with the addition of onboard Vibration Control: Patent Publication No. 2016-126280 Published 2016.7.11 Filing date 2015.1.8 Example 1 f 10.303 15.199 23.483 FNO = 3.6 -. 4.1 – 4.6 2ω = 111.70 – 86.59 – 62.07 Patent of Tamron Negative positive and negative positive Anti-vibration (third group) Inner focus (rear group...

Olympus OM-D E-M1 II Registered in Taiwan?

A new Olympus camera has been registered with a government radio agency in Taiwan, along with a new battery, charger and USB cable. The camera is code named Olympus/IM002 and rumored to be the forthcoming replacement of the OM-D E-M1. The same camera was registered with the Indonesian Telecommunication Agency earlier in the month, so Olympus certainly have something on the boil! The inclusion of a new battery, charger and cable in the registration is perhaps an indicator that the new camera will be getting a larger battery, but we will have to wait and see if this turns out...

Could the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Feature a 30 Megapixel Sensor?

More snippets of Canon EOS 5D Mark IV information are coming in, with the latest rumor, supposedly from a camera retail source suggesting that the 5D Mark III successor will feature a 30 megapixel sensor. That brings the total number of rumored resolutions for the MkIV up to three, original rumors having suggested 24.2mp, and subsequent rumors claiming 32mp, and now 30mp. 30mp is a bit of an oddball resolution (6712 x 4472), with 24 (6000 x 4000) and 28 (6480 x 4320) being more commonly seen in digital cameras, so there is a possibility that this figure has...

Hasselblad X1D-50C Shipping Delayed Until August 30th

Shipping of Hasselblad’s new X1D-50c, the world’s first mirrorless medium format camera has reportedly been delayed until the end of August. The X1D-50c was originally expected to ship earlier in August, but retailers have pushed shipping dates back. Speculation on why this has happened suggests that either Hasselblad may have encountered more pre-release bugs than expected, or that the delay is a result of Sony production issues related to the Kumamoto earthquake. Whatever the reason, early adopters are going to have to wait a little longer to get their hands on their beautiful new...
