  1. Olympus released a major firmware update. Most of the updates are related to AF improvement including the use of PDAF for video like the E-M1x. Olympus also added support for OM-LOG400. https://www.olympus-global.com/news/2019/contents/nr01270/nr01270_00001.pdf

    Nikon 8K?

    It was Canon EOS https://m.dpreview.com/news/6880645219/apple-used-an-unreleased-8k-canon-cinema-camera-to-show-off-its-mac-pro-pro-display-xdr
  3. It is also good to see that Apple has added non-destructive video editing with IOS 13 that supports most of the photo editing capabilities including support for 4k60p. It will be interesting to see how Apple continues to develop this.

    Panasonic LUMIX V1

    This image was posted a week ago in the comments at 43rumors by the person who created it. It was just based on his wish list and actually included his signature at the bottom right but that was removed by that rumor site. It is a total fake. https://www.43rumors.com/ft5-panasonic-will-have-a-cine-lumix-announcement-on-may-31/
  5. At little less than expected at $1,798 US. https://photorumors.com/2019/05/27/panasonic-leica-dg-vario-summilux-10-25mm-f-1-7-asph-mft-lens-specifications-leaked-online/
  6. A 100mp X-Tran sensor would require some serious processing power, especially if Samsung also implements low light stacking.
  7. A 1/2.3" sensor https://photorumors.com/2019/05/09/dji-osmo-action-camera-leaked-pictures-and-specifications-12mp-1-2-3″-sensor-4k60p-video/
  8. Below are the leaks specs and along with the leaked side shot of the camera we can see that a headphone jack was added and the Mic moved out of the way of the screen. Along with the additional of V-log L it looks like Panasonic has focused more on video with this release. The only thing missing is 4k/60p. https://www.nokishita-camera.com/2019/04/dc-g99.html LUMIX DC-G90 / G95 / G99 Effective pixel count 20.3M pixel Live MOS sensor, low pass filterless 5-axis Dual IS 2, camera shake correction effect for 5 stages Unlimited 4K30p / Full HD Movies V-log L is pre-installed 2.36 million dots organic EL LVF, finder magnification 0.74 times 3.0 type vari-angle touch panel monitor Dust and drip proof Equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Size: 130.4 x 93.5 x 77.4 mm Weight: about 536 g Domestic release date: May 23, 2019 Kit: Body, high magnification zoom lens kit (overseas standard zoom kit is also available)
  9. Sharp officially joins m4/3. I expect we will see more details at NAB https://www.olympus-global.com/news/2019/contents/nr01198/nr01198_00001.pdf
  10. A Raw converter would need to support this new RYYB configuration, otherwise we are dependent on the huawei's processing.
  11. The 4k mode on the top dial instead of 6k like the G9/GH5 suggests this has an older sensor/processor. I would expect a large crop for 4k.
  12. Some minor changes to the body. https://www.nokishita-camera.com/2019/03/blog-post_26.html

    Sony Xperia 1

    Some interesting comments from Sony on how the Camera upgrade came about. https://www.trustedreviews.com/news/sony-xperia-phones-finally-getting-alpha-style-cameras-3666962 The knock-on effect was that Alpha guru Kimio Maki is now head of product development for Sony Mobile and actually stopped production on what would have been a Sony XZ3. “He said “okay, so we work with Alpha here, let’s take this bit, we work with the CineAlta brand, let’s bring this bit”. He opened up the whole of digital imaging for us.” “Because that imaging team is all together, they can share that experience across Cybershot, Alpha and Xperia”, he added. Which sounds like a spectacularly sensible approach that should bear some tasty fruits for smartphone photographers. Presumably this also means we’ll start to start more Alpha features flooding into Xperia phones? “It’s possible. If it’s software, it could be possible to bring it across. A closer collaboration with Alpha is a definite, thanks to the management change that’s happened in Tokyo with Mobile now belonging to Imaging.” There have also previously been issues with interdepartmental rivalry stifling collaboration, Marsh admitted. “Even though we’re one company, there are still sometimes barriers that Alpha doesn’t want to give Mobile certain things, because all of a sudden you have the same as what a £3,000 camera’s got. “Now that barrier’s gone a little bit. They’re saying “okay, we see that having a smartphone and camera that gives you the same experience is a good thing”, he added.

    Sony Xperia 1

    It looks like RED may have finally awaken the sleeping giant. It has always amazed me why Sony never applied their video and camera division experience to their smartphones.
  15. There is also a 15 minute recording limit for 4k60 and all other high-speed modes.
