So far there has been absolutely ZERO specs about the video capability of this new camera. There is a dedicated video record button which is good. However I am not holding my breath for 1080 24p. Just going to have to wait until the Panasonic GH3 for a new m43 camera with solid video features.

Canon 7D MKII or 5D MKIII Photos?? (leak/rumor)

It looks like pictures of a possible Canon 5D MKIII or 7D MKII have surfaced on the web. This is probably THE most substantive rumor/leak regarding either of these cameras to date. Something tells me that this feels like a new 7D. I have nothing to back that up but my hunch says 7D. Either way I just hope they put a freakin’ headphone jack in the new 7D and 5D. Also would love to see a 1080p video crop function put into both new models.

Olympus OM-D Mirrorless “retro slr” FEB 5th

source:M43 rumors

M43 rumors is reporting that the new Olympus mirrorless will be called the Olympus OM-D. It will be a retro styled mirrorless camera that will resemble the OM film cameras of old. Hopefully Olympus figures out what 24p is and sticks it in this new camera. This could really give the upcoming Panasonic GH3 a run for its money. The real question is will Panasonic drop the boring industrial design with their new cameras like Fuji and Olympus have?
