During an interview with dpreview Canon Managing Director and Chief Executive Masaya Maeda confirmed that recently announced Canon G7X sensor is not made by Canon.
A part of the interview
“Canon released two cameras at Photokina – the EOS 7D Mark II and PowerShot G7X. One thing we’ve learned is that the sensor in the G7X is not made by Canon. Does this represent a new philosophy at Canon?
We select the best sensor, whoever the manufacturer is. That’s our policy.”
Canon G7 X Sensor made by Sony?
We are not confirmed but the specification of Canon G7X sensor matches the specification of Sony RX100 M3 sensor…
Now take a look at the physical specification of Canon G7X and Sony RX100 M3 Sensor

Nikon D750 and Canon 5D Mark III specification comparison review, the Canon 5D Mark III is approx a 2 year old camera and Nikon D750 is few weeks old.. so take a look at the difference below
Nikon is giving you bit more resolution, but I am amazed that Nikon took 2+ years to develop a 5D mark III rival and still the AF system of the recently announced Nikon D750 is inferior to 5D Mark III.
- Nikon D750 -> 51 distinct points available, you get options to use 9, 21, or all 51 points depending on the situation.
- Canon 5D Mark III -> 61-point autofocus system with upto 41 cross-type AF points (with f/4 lens support) and 5 dual diagonal AF points (with f/2.8 sensitivity).
The ISO range of Nikon D750 is also limited to 51200 only on the other hand the 5D Mark III ISO range touches 102400 mark, hence no doubt that the 5D Mark III will perform better in low light condition when compared to Nikon D750.
Nikon is offering a better Full HD Video mode with tilting display system and bit more resolution… and the (only) best part is it is more affordable compared to 5D Mk 3
and finally the verdict, the Canon 5D Mark III gives you advance AF system, more ISO range and based on specification comparison review we recommend you to buy 5D Mk 3.

More confirmation is coming from multiple sources about the NX400 announcement, as we have told you earlier that Samsung will soon announce two version of Samsung NX400 camera one with EVF and one without EVF.

Samsung 16-80mm f/4 OIS
Samsung S 24mm f/1.4 ED

In an interview published few days ago (see here) Nikon representatives told to amateurphotographer.co.uk that Nikon is not in the mood to develop large sensor mirrorless camera, all of our FB fan and website users said that It is one of the worst decision ever made by Nikon.
But today again a new interview surfaced over the web via dpreview.com, in that interview Mr. Toshiaki Akagi – Department Manager in Nikon’s 1st Designing Department of the Development Center in the Imaging Business Unit Nikon said “We don’t want to deny the possibility of future large-sensor mirrorless cameras. So maybe if there is enough demand we may be able to provide another type of mirrorless camera with larger sensors. This is one of the solutions”
Also look at the key points of the interview —
- Introduction of 4K movie function to our DSLR lineup
- Nikon is studying the possible demand of Nikon D300s successor, since many pro-DX format user upgraded to FX format.
- Nikon is also “studying” the possibility / possible demand of a D3X successor D4X
- and finally “You can expect some new DX lenses in the future. We haven’t forgotten about our DX customers”
So it’s nice to see Nikon is atleast not rigid on its decisions and will announce products based on user and market demand.
In an interview with DCWatch Olympus Imaging president Mr.Ogawa Haruo confirms the E-M5 successor is coming soon, the other good news is mirrorless sales are boosting up exponentially …
Few parts of the interview
Increasing demand of the mirrorless camera…
I think this year, interchangeable-lens camera of Olympus has grown and + 140-150%, but part of the lineup OM-D because that uniform is large this.
– (February 14, 2012) OLYMPUS OM-D E-M5 will be the oldest model in the lineup of interchangeable-lens camera, but there is also a model up and down with the E-M1, E-M10 on the other hand. Will there be a successor of the E-M5?
Successor model of the E-M5 we are ready. Between the E-M1 from the E-M5, interface and functionality, such as a device that is used for the viewfinder, and know-how technology has advanced in various aspects. You will not have to provide new products that reflect them. Please keep looking forward to it.
No details about the sucessor of E-M1 is available yet but the camra will sure have advance PDAF sensor, 4k recording capability and retro design same as of its predecessor.

UPDATE: Nikon – We Don’t Want to Deny the Possibility of Large-Sensor Mirrorless
Take a look at the key points of the inter-view
– The market is growing moderately, but that’s on a very small scale [in relation] to the size of the [overall] market.
– In terms of total value and units, it is really small compared to what DSLR is still doing.
– the whole camera market is contracting (due to high end smartphones?) and the Mirrorless sale is not growing by the same amount.
– Nikon already have the Nikon 1 mirrorless system and doesn’t see any reason to announce large sensor based mirrorless camera.
– According to Nikon DSLR offer advantages over CSCs, in terms of AF speed, tracking and ‘reliability of the life cycle’.
An finally, high-end mirrorless system would need to win acceptance from professionals and many loyal enthusiasts
