So after the release the Nikon D300 is now completing its 8th (or 80th) birthday, but till date no update from Nikon arrived yet, why? we don’t know… The users always need the up-gradation their machine, Nikon must pay attention towards the arrival of Nikon D400 successor.

Since after more than 8 years, Sony didn’t updated the camera and R1 production is now completely stopped. Earlier there was expectation that Sony DSC R2 will replace it, but we have no further information about its announcement till date. We hope Sony will further take its responsibility to release it.
- Canon G17
Canon G16 was announced in August, 2013. It was the Canon’s newest flagship compact camera at that time.
In general Canon upgrades its compact camera every year, Delay of two years is sufficient for its rivals to completely wipe out its potential customers with a better product.
However, It is expected that Canon PowerShot G17 will come with “ultra bright lens” with maximum aperture of f/1.2-2 depends on selected focal length, it also feature a 1-inch-type image sensor made by Sony (possibly of RX100 M4) and a 7x optical zoom lens that will offer a 35mm focal length equivalent of 24-168mm. The maximum aperture of the lens will come with f/1.2-2 and it depends on the selected focal length. The upcoming compact camera will feature DIGIC 6+ image processor.

It has almost similar specification compare to its predecessor except the newly inclusion of an electronic viewfinder, which has 921,000 dots and covers 100% of the frame.
Since from past few months we are getting lots of rumors related to the replacement of Nikon P7800 with P8000, which is definitely a need for the users who is still attach with Nikon P7800.

At the time of its discontinuity, there was expectation that the company will announce its successor Nikon Coolpix A II very soon. But till date we faced lots of rumors related to its announcement but all are totally baseless.
So, we hope the company will put the upgraded Coolpix A II in the hand of the users so that they will shoot more impressive images with better experience compare to Nikon Coolpix A.
It is expected that Nikon Coolpix A II will come with a 24 MP DX format sensor, built without low-pass filter and new image processor.
