Leica is apparently embracing Facebook more and more these days as is evident from their former status. They announced today that their Facebook fans will be the first to know about the new camera that will come out. According to PhotoRumors, we are to be expecting the new camera tomorrow and it will be the V-LUX 20.
A while ago at the Leica Roadshow in NYC, the S2 was presented to all who attended. The camera, Leica’s main entry into the professional medium format space, is one that surprised all during the seminar. Being a 37.5MP beast of a camera, when one actually holds it they notice that it is actually more elegant that it is a monster. However, it does have a couple of quirks; as do most medium format cameras.
Though only by a hair, the Sony A550 has beat the T2i. However, also look at the low-light ISO readings. The A550 does beat it, if only perhaps for the less megapixels on a slightly larger APS-C sized sensor (Nikon and Sony have a larger one than Canon.) Despite this is not something to jump all over, it is still quite interesting to note.
After spending a long time with the Nikon D3x, the review is finally over. The D3x is an excellent camera with an excellent build. However, it seems a bit too niche for most photographers. More conclusions after the jump.
The Nikon D300s review has been completed for a while now and so I am not taking my time to type up my complete thoughts on the camera along with post all links in the review diary. My conclusions are after the jump.
LeicaRumors has been reporting on the possible release of the V-LUX 20 for a little while now. According to Leica’s Facebook page, there is news to come next week. In addition there is also quite a bit of speculation as to what could be coming.
My bet is the V-LUX 20 for sure. Although keep in mind that Leica did recently confirm their joining of the Micro Four Thirds alliance and that there may have been possible hints dropped in my recent interview with them.

For photographers that still want to get their iPad, know that Apple is putting you first over international orders. According to an Apple media release today, Apple is delaying the international launch of the iPad due to the excessive demand of the product. That means that people outside of the US can expect to see it at the end of May. Here’s the release:
