In a short span of time Sony become a Sensor manufacturer giant, in 2014 Sony made 40.2 percent of all image sensors produced globally and its image sensor business increasing day by day.
Sony finally split-off its fastest growing image sensor business under a new name “Sony Semiconductor Solutions”, The sensor the strongest business unit for the electronics maker. The decision taken by the Sony will speed up the growth of the sensor business and will make it more accountable for their profitability.
A part of the press release
In the semiconductor business, where image sensors are a primary area of focus, Sony will establish Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation (“Sony Semiconductor Solutions”) to further reinforce this business, and concentrate on sustained growth. R&D, business control, sales and other operations related to the semiconductor business, which are currently overseen by business groups and R&D units within Sony Corporation, will be transferred to Sony Semiconductor Solutions. The new company will aim to commence operations on April 1, 2016. As part of its mid-term corporate strategy announced in February 2015, Sony outlined its intention to sequentially split out the business units currently within Sony Corporation and operate them alongside existing Sony Group companies. The aim of these measures is to ensure clearly attributable accountability and responsibility from the perspective of shareholders, management policies with an emphasis on sustainable profit generation, and the acceleration of decision-making processes and reinforcement of business competitiveness. The decision to establish Sony Semiconductor Solutions forms part of this strategy.

Take a look at the core specification and major difference between Olympus E-M10 II and E-M5 II camera, take a look at the table below…
Olympus OM-D E-M10 II vs. Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Specification Comparison Table.
Both camera have almost same core specification, the sensor, that clearly means you will get same image quality from from both the camera.
Both camera have ultra-sensitive 5-axis VCM (voice coil motor) 5 axis image stabilization system, the advance 5-axis image stabilization system assisted with updated gyro sensors and it allows you to have full 5 exposure steps of compensation.
No high resolution mode available in E-M10 II camera but Olympus E-M5 II camera we can capture 8 images in a sequence to create a 40MP high resolution composite image.
When we discuss which camera will be better to freeze the action of the fast moving subject confidently then Olympus OM-D E-M5 II is the right answer because the camera trades the 10fps of shooting speed but the compact camera OM-D E-M10 II has manages only 8.5fps.
However, you can easily capture the HD video in both the cameras but the OM-D E-M5 Mark II captures 1080p video at up to a 60p frame rate with up to 77 Mbps high bit-rate recording possible at the 30p setting
10 more shots you can take by using E-M5 II cameras whereas 310 shots only be taken by E-M10 II.

The Canon’s imaging chief Masaya Maeda discussed in an interview which was conducted by Imaging-resource about the recently announced latest Canon products including Canon 120MP Full Frame DSLR camera, 250MP APS-H sensor, 600mm f/4L DO BR IS lens, ME20F-SH.
The chief also added that Canon is planning to announce the Canon EOS M mirrorless camera in coming days. So there is hope that the long-rumored EOS M4 is in the route for its announcement in the last of 2015 or in the early month of 2016.
about EOS M:
Going forward, and this would be a repeat of what I said before, but we will put more effort into mirrorless, and also, naturally, we will continue to expand the EF-M lens group. In the very near future, I think that Canon will come out with a mirrorless camera that you would really like.
We have already posted a update related to Canon EOS M4 rumors on Aug, 22 2015. In the article we have discussed about the possibility of the announcement of Canon EOS M4 and we have also said the the upcoming EOS M4 camera will shift the Canon Mirrorless Line-up to a new level.

Canon 7D Mark II is undoubtedly world best APS-C sensor based DSLR camera, Canon today announced a new firmware update to fix the issue occurring with the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM lens or EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens, take a look at the improvement list below
Canon 7D Mark II first firmware update issued by Canon,
- Improves AF accuracy when used in combination with the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM lens or EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens.
- Fixes a phenomenon in which, in very rare cases, the “Peripheral illumination correction” is applied inconsistently.
- Fixes a phenomenon in which, while performing an EF lens firmware update, the progress bar displayed on the LCD monitor may freeze at 100% even though the update has been completed.
- Fixes a processing error in relation to the leap second for the “Geotag information appended to image” and “Log data” GPS functions.
- Fixes a phenomenon, where at the time of shooting in very rare cases “Err 70” occurs, or the shutter does not release.

Canon 80D core specification tossed over the web via a dpreview forum member MichaelVadon, earlier he also published lot of info realted to 5D Mark III successor you can see it here [Canon 5D Mark IV – The Rumor Saga Continues]
Canon 80D Rumored Specification
- 24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor & Digic 6+ or 7 Image Processor
- 3.0″ Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD Monitor
- Full HD 1080p Video Capture
- 49-Point AF System
- Hybrid CMOS AF III
- Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity with NFC
- Continuous shooting rate of up to 8 fps
We don’t expect Canon will use Hybrid CMOS AF III in the upcoming camera, Canon Dualpixel CMOS AF technology is advance and better compared to Hybrid AF and in Pro camera like 80D Canon will sure implement Dual-pixel AF tech.
However at this moment we don’t have any confirmation.

After waiting for about 4 years, there is lots of expectation that the users will now see the successor of Nikon D300S in the coming month of September, 2015. The latest rumor is surfaced over the FOX2 forum
take a look at test surfaced at the Fox2 forum
The only ‘facts’ I have been told are:
– its on its way, will be called D400, is scheduled for announcement in sept and will have a 24MP sensor.
Everything else is speculation but as it is likely to be the flagship of the cropped sensor range logic tells me that it will be a higher spec (and no doubt price) than the D7200 so would expect it to draw in quite a few of the bells and whistles from the D4s/D810 etc. What would be very desirable (for me) is a fast burst rate, group area AF, high ISO capability, fast write speed and quite a few other things I will think about over the weekend! lol
The only possible reason I think behind the delay of Nikon D400 camera was absence of a true competitor, over the past few months advance APS-C camera like 7D Mark II from Canon and NX1 from Nikon already created a different space in the APS-C cam market. Nikon D7200 specification look inferior in front of the recently announced flagship and Nikon need a flagship DSLR at this moment to continue the APS-C flagship legacy.
It is expected that Nikon D400 should be a very impressive and powerful camera compare to its predecessor Nikon D300S and there will be lots of magnificent features set for sports and wildlife shooters. It will come with 24MP APS-C Sensor comparatively superior to 12.3 MP DX-Format CMOS Sensor of Nikon D300s.
At this moment we don’t have much information till date but we expect that it will have possible 51 points AF system, ISO range upto 51200, and will also supports recording 4K UHD.
We know that Nikon will soon or later will going to announce the Nikon D400 camera. Take a look at the post published on April 11th, 2015 – Nikon D400 Will Arrive in Future
