Could this be the new Nikon 1?

In the wake of the announcement of the Fuji XT-1 and Sigma dp Quattro high-end mirrorless cameras, Nikon appears to be taking a second look at their new generation of 1-Series offerings. After lackluster sales of the original launch of the Nikon mirrorless models, it appears that Nikon might be turning its attention to the prosumer market to compete with Fuji, Olympus, and Panasonic if these concept images are to be believed.

Canon Announces New Entry-Level T5, the Powershot G1X Official

Though you can read more about the Powershot G1X here (since the info was leaked early by Best Buy who shortly thereafter removed the page), the Canon T5 experienced no such leak. The T5 is an entry-level affordable ($550) way for newbies to take ditch a point and shoot for a DSLR.

Fstoppers Reviews - Neewer TT850 Li-Ion Flash

Fstoppers Reviews - Neewer TT850 Li-Ion Flash

No AA's? No problem! Late last year Neewer, a company previously bashed for making fake MB-D11 battery grips, released the TT850 speedlight (you may also find this same flash branded as the Godox Ving V850). While not offered by B&H, they can be found on eBay and Amazon, for around $100. Typically I wouldn't get too excited about a third party product but there is a particular feature that sets the TT850 apart from its competitors and put it at the top of my list.

Panasonic Announces 4K Mirrorless Lumix, the DMC-GH4

I always thought the point of mirrorless was to make things compact, but Panasonic looks like they want to expand my mind and believe it also means raw power, as they have announced the Lumix DMC-GH4, a new camera that features 4K 24p cinematic video (4096x2160), plus 4K 3840x2160 30p/24p with 49 points of autofocus. The build is all metal, and it's obviously aimed at the professional market.

The New Pentax 645D Medium Format Is Coming!

The New Pentax 645D Medium Format Is Coming!

As far as digital products from Pentax go, the 645D Medium Format has always been the king of the hill for the company. Fans of Pentax, such as myself, have been anxiously awaiting an update to the original digital medium format offering from Pentax which was released nearly 4 years ago in 2010. Nipping at the heels of the recent Hasselblad and Phase One CMOS Medium Format announcements it appears Pentax finally has its own Medium Format announcement to make... and a 50MP CMOS no less.
