Before the announcement of Canon 5D Mark IV camera we were the only website who told you that few prototypes of Canon 5D Mark IV do have a Canon Log and Wide DR gamut. The Log records an image / video with subdued contrast and sharpness, the camera with log gamma supports preserves a high dynamic range and presupposes color grading in post-production.
After the announcement of the camera there was no C-log support and we thought that the anonymous tipster information was wrong. But, according to the leaked information Canon will soon enable C-log via firmware update scheduled to arrive at NAB 2017.

Nikon registered a new camera (N16D3) at Indonesian agencies and if you look in the past record Nikon generally manufacture compact camera in Indonesia. According to Nokoshita, Nikon may announce successors of either Nikon AW130 compact rugged camera or we can see an new Megazoom compact camera from Nikon, successor of the ultra popular model Nikon P900.
Nikon 16D3 Registration Details
- Indonesia POSTEL
- Company name: Nikon Indonesia PT.
- Equipment: Digital camera
- Model: N16D3
- Country of origin: Indonesia
- Registration date: 20th March 2017
In general Nikon takes approx 2 to 3 months to announce our new product after its registration in wireless certification agencies. So, we can expect some announcements in the month of July or maybe August of 2017.
Since Nikon skipped megazoom update last year, may be due to the absence of any true competitor. So, we are expecting that Nikon will going to announce Nikon P950 or P1000 this year . The Nikon P900 features 83X optical zoom and 16MP sensor available at B&H and Amazon stores.
The current market the scenario is very wired, Canon didn’t announced any mega zoom camera from past 2 years and it’s look like they are completely out from Mega zoom camera race. Sony last Mega zoom camera was HX 400V announced on Feb 2014 and even after 3 years we haven’t seen any Megazoom camera from Sony, now the concentrated their development on 1 inch sensor compacts and left the Megazoom battlefield for others.
Did you Know that Nikon also have 1 Fullframe DSLR and a new compact camera in its announcement funnel. The expected announcement date we have been told was April. More information available here.

On December 2016 one of our forum members have reported that Nikon is not getting the 42 MP sensor from Sony. Now after three months we got confirmation from Sony itself that they have stopped selling their best sensors to Nikon and others commercially. That’s a really sad news for Nikon and its users.
Let’s take an look What Sony representatives said in the interview (some major points)
1. Only Sony Can Use these Sensors
As you know well, our key driver is the image sensor, and we already invested a lot of money for the image sensor development. And the sensor is a custom [design, meaning that] only Sony can use these sensors, and our strength is our in-house technology. So I invested in that and we will keep investing in the in-house technology like image sensors.
2. About Future Fullframe Camera
Now we are focused on three essential factors. One is of course the resolution, and another is the sensitivity, and third is the speed. [For example] 20 frames per second and 30 frames per burst or 100 frames per second, everybody wants to [have] that kind of functionality, but I can’t say yes. Because they don’t know how to use this kind of technology, but if we can show the benefit for that, people [will] enjoy the new technology, I think
3. APS-C vs Fullframe
Yes. Full-frame is our primary area. But as you said, we don’t ignore the APS-C market, and we can also grow the APS-C market.
That’s why Nikon haven’t announced any Serious fullframe sensor based DSLR or mirrorless from past 1 year. Nikon D750 successor is due for an update for a longtime. Nikon also reported Extraordinary Financial Loss a while ago.

Translated from Japanese via dcwatch
Focus studio Co., Ltd. released the middle optics mount adapter “Lens Turbo II N / G-FX” on March 16. The suggested retail price is 21,000 yen by tax.
Mount adapter that mounts Nikon F mount lens to Fuji Film X mount machine. According to the reducer lens in the adapter, the APS – C sensor can record at the original angle of view for 35 mm lens, and the F value gets brighter by one step.
It’s a excellent news that now you can use Nikon FX lenses on your Fuji x series camera while boosting its aperture . We do know that Metabones and Fotodiox already have Nikkor Lenses to Fuji X series camera adapter.
But one of the biggest advantage of the Naka optics is the act as speed booster and it will increases the Maximum aperture upto 1 stop.

Sony A9 / Upcoming flagship Details – According to the tipster
- According to the tipster the upcoming camera is having bit more heavy grip compared to the current A7 series camera.

- Joystick control
- Unable to see the SD card slots of the mirrorless camera, But why looking externally he feels that there is a place for to SD cards
- Source claim that the camera can capture 14 frames per second continuous shooting speed. As he was able to guess that is speed by hearing the continuous burst sound of the camera which is quite unbelievable.
- He also silently confirms the presence of 16-35mm f/2.8 GM and 100-400mm FE lens with the photographer.
