Leaked: The new Fujifilm X-Pro2

Screen Shot 2015-12-31 at 9.52.22 AM

First released back in 2012, the Fujifilm X-Pro1 has since become a fan favorite revered for its mirrorless functionality. Fast forward to today and the Japanese camera imprint looks like it is set to release an update on its highly-acclaimed flagship unit.

Based on images released by Fuji Rumors, we get a first look at the new model that sports slightly more rounded edges although the camera, in general, still retains clear aesthetic cues from the original. Despite details still being sparse regarding changes with the internal makeup, distinct alterations have been made with the viewfinder and control system. In particular, a joystick seems to have been added.

According to Engadget, Fujifilm is set to launch the X-Pro2 on January 15, 2016. Until then, we hope to receive more information on specification details.

Fujifilm unveils the X-T10 camera

Watch HSN try to sell a Canon Rebel T3i and laugh

The Phoblographer:

We as photographers all know better than the average consumer looking to just have a DSLR, but if you’re looking for a laugh this afternoon, then you should take a look at the video after the jump featuring the Home Shopping Network attempting to sell the Canon Rebel T3i back in 2012.

Some of the best highlights? They call it a flagship camera, say that professionals use it, and say that a Canon lens is being used to film them despite said lens being a multi-thousand dollar video lens. But the overall marketing is just so blatantly forced and fake that you can’t help but crack up and think of the poor helpless folks that they’re targeting.

To be fair, the camera is quite good considering that the camera is one of Flickr’s most popular DSLR and that it still holds up even today when they’ve announced the T6i.

Canon’s 50-Megapixel EOS 5DS is the highest-resolution DSLR ever


Olympus (Japan) OM-D E-5 Mark II

Olympus has announced the OM-D E-5 Mark II, a classic SLR camera that is smaller and lighter, yet packed with technical refinements. Trading in the previously utilized 16MP output for 40MP, images are sharper and more detailed than ever before. Blurry photos are a thing of the past thanks to the built-in stabilizer.

With each click, a burst of eight images are captured, which are then combined to create one incredibly clear snapshot. The shutter speed sees an improvement too with a 1/16000 second close time, which means during burst mode it is possible to capture 10 frames per second. The large viewfinder now operates at a higher resolution of 1024×768 pixels and the camera as a whole is water-resistant and can withstand drops of over 6 feet.

The Olympus OM-D E-5 Mark II is set for a late-February release, starting at $1,250 USD.
