Fujifilm just announed a brand new mirrorless camera, the X-T2, which features reportedly faster autofocus performance and 4K video shooting in a rugged, splash-resistant compact camera body. The Fujifilm X-T2 is fitted with an APS-C-sized, 24.3-megapixel X-Trans CMOS III sensor with no low pass filter to help further amp up the camera's resolving power.

Just like the Fujifilm X-Pro1, which was introduced in 2012, the new Fujifilm X-Pro2 mirrorless camera is based on an APS-C sensor, but it uses a completely new version of the “X-Trans CMOS” sensor and now offers 24 megapixels instead of 16MP. The X-Pro2 is the first camera of Fujifilm’s X system that uses this new sensor. (Note: The new X-E2S still uses the 16MP version sensor.)

The big news about the Leica M-D (Typ 262) is what it doesn’t have. It does not have autofocus. It does not provide through-the-lens viewing. And it’s not compatible with any zoom lens.

With a design philosophy that less technology means more creative freedom, the eagerly anticipated Leica M–D camera is now a reality. The 24–megapixel camera harkens back to the limited edition M60 we reviewed a couple years ago and is the first full production model in the digital M line without a rear LCD monitor.

For my photography I prefer small, lightweight, responsive cameras to big, heavy, bulky DSLRs. While small cameras once lagged behind DSLRs in image quality and performance, today’s compact cameras are challenging their dominance with great cameras like the Sony A7S IIPanasonic Lumix DMC-LX100Nikon P900 and the new, elegant retro Olympus Pen-F. These compact, bridge and hybrid cameras can even do things some big, bulky DSLRs can’t.

Judging by its understated model designation it would be easy to conclude that the Sony Alpha A6300 mirrorless camera is simply an upgraded Alpha A6000 with 4K video capture added to its already impressive feature set. After spending the better part of three days shooting with the A6300 during a press trip last week to Miami, FL, I am confident that the new model is a lot more than that. In short, it’s a real game changer that represents a significant technological breakthrough for Sony, and for the entire mirrorless camera category.

The Sony A7S II has a 12MP full-frame sensor. This mirrorless camera could be dubbed an “available light specialist” that offers extremely high sensitivity settings of up to ISO 409,600. According to Sony, the BIONZ X processor in the A7S II features an upgraded image processing algorithm that boosts the sensor’s capabilities overall, particularly at the mid-high end of the ISO scale. This is designed to produce more detailed still images and movies with low noise at high ISOs. Let’s take a closer look at this high sensitivity camera, which has also been called a “low-light monster” and a “master of the dark arts.”

We’ve just come back from a press event today to launch the new Sony A6300. This compact mirrorless camera has a lot going for it, including a new 4D Focus system that can lock focus on a subject in as little as 0.05 seconds, which Sony claims is the world’s fastest autofocus (AF) acquisition time.
