by Brad Soo on March 2

Samsung announced a new NX series concept today; which will be all about interchangeable lens cameras without mirror boxes of traditional digital SLRs (thus a slimmer, smaller design is possible).

So far, this is what Samsung has had to say about this new NX series camera concept:

They will use an APS-C sized sensor (1.5X […]

New Fujifilm cameras
by Brad Soo on February 5

Fujifilm has been strangely quiet over the past month but today they finally announced three compact cameras, including the latest in the F-series high-sensitivity line.

Could this be the start of Fujifilm dropping support for the almost-proprietary xD-card they’ve been using with Olympus for years?
