  • Nikon Looking Into Carbon Fiber DSLR Bodies?

    This is an interesting rumor, if not particularly well-sourced. But hey, it’s Friday night. Anything goes! It seems someone working in a workshop specializing in carbon-fiber construction has been working on something for Nikon: a “resin-infused 3D woven CFRP body” of the Pro DSLR persuasion. Current high-end camera bodies often use magnesium alloy for structure, though… Read More

  • Apple May Be Planning A Holiday Release For Next iPad

    Some rumors are swirling, quite unsubstantiated, that Apple may be breaking its own yearly release cycle by pushing for a holiday release for the next iPad. Traditionally, of course, Apple has its products on more or less yearly cycles, spreading the fun out over several events or sometimes furtively updating specs in the night. It’s worked well for them, because though it may be… Read More

  • Video Appears To Show Unreleased Samsung NX-100


    You may remember Samsung’s NX-10, a DSLR released during CES. There have been rumors floating around of a related camera, the NX100, but nobody has ever seen one except in one random shot, taken during what is presumed to be a commercial for the camera. But now, it appears that at the end of this little National Geographic/Samsung ad, there’s an NX-100 sitting there on the right. Read More

  • A Few Likely Canon 60D Specs

    Our usual source for unreleased (and possibly false) Canon info, Canon Rumors, has posted a few specs for the 60D that actually seem perfectly likely. The 60D is supposed to be a video-focused replacement for the 40D, and reports indicate it’s more than a rumor, and possibly hitting in early September. The specs quoted at Canon Rumors are limited but telling. Read More

  • Proof Of Existence Of Canon’s 60D May Have Leaked


    The Canon 60D is one of those ongoing gadget bugaboos that we have seen around for months, yet have no direct confirmation. This listing, found on image testers DxO Labs’ site, seems to indicate a 60D coming out soon. Previous rumors put it out in late August or early September, so this seems to coincide nicely with that.

  • Official Nikon D3100 Announcement Expected August 19th

    We’re expecting to get official word on the D3100 next month; Nikon is currently planning a press event the week of August 16th-20th in Europe, which is pretty typical. It’s expected that there will be two events, one to announce the launch of new Coolpix cameras, and one to announce the launch of the previously rumored D3100, as well as some new lens. More details after the jump. Read More

  • Retailers pulling Nikon D90s to prepare for new model? Update: Confirmed


    The D90, Nikon’s popular and versatile enthusiast DSLR, may be approaching the end of its lifespan. It was leaked in August of 2008 and has been a solid contender ever since, despite having some serious skew on its video. And now, almost two years later, it appears to be being pulled from retail shelves in order to make room for a successor. It is whispered that this successor will… Read More

  • What's Apple going to do with a 3×3-cm touchscreen display? New iPod? New MacBook Pro touchpad?

    We have here what appears to be a new touchscreen interface for a Mac. Exactly what type of Mac, or when it’s due, or whether it’s even real, not sure. The leading candidate, however: a touchpad display for the MacBook Pro. Tenterhooks, people, tenterhooks. Read More

  • PSN Premium rumor has the Internets shaking in its boots

    In my lower moments I can be found browsing various message boards, watching mere children argue over what video game console is superior, the Xbox 360 or the PS3. No, I’m not lying, sad as that may be. Eventually the PS3 supporters whip out this gem: “Yeah, well at least we don’t have to pay to play online,” which is a clever dig at Xbox Live’s $50 price tag.

  • The PSP 2 will be '[expletive] powerful'

    There will be a PSP 2. No, not some sort of halfway sequel, à la the PSP Go, but an actual, holy smokes PSP 2. That’s the rumor, and you’d have to assume that’s the case. But the specifics of the rumor, today’s incarnation of the rumor, that is, is that the device will be “[expletive] powerful.” That’s pretty powerful! Read More

  • Canon 5D mk III rumored to ship in 2011

    It looks like the popularity of Canon’s full-frame DSLR (and powerful, but flawed video camera) is enough to warrant another sequel. While some would say that cheaper, but equally capable cropped-sensor cameras like the 7D represent a better value, the 5D has its own charm and I’m sure Canon will be capitalizing on that — next year, if Vincent Laforet is to be believed.

  • Rumor: new Nikon DSLRs incoming?

    New Nikon DSLRs… that wouldn’t be much of a rumor — of course they’re coming. But this rumor has specs! Things! Being! Rumored! It’s exciting! So what have we here… three new cameras coming? So exciting. Read More

  • New Xbox 360 bundle incoming? Smaller, 250GB HDD, Project Natal built-in.

    Full credit to Microsoft: it’s still got people paying top-dollar for its nearly five-year-old Xbox 360. It’s gonna need to sweeten the deal, though, to keep people a-buyin’. Like, say, a new bundle? Maybe a bundle with a thinner 360 and built-in Project Natal? Sounds about right. Read More

  • WSJ: Verizon iPhone hitting this summer


    The rumor mill is churning today as news of a CDMA iPhone running on Verizon will be manufactured by Pegatron in China while a whole new AT&T model, made by Foxconn, will also drop in the summer/fall timeframe. the Journal notes that the two new devices will be exactly the same except, obviously, the CDMA version will lack a SIM card. We’ve seen weird leaks of an iPhone 4G… Read More

  • Apple set to release 27-inch LED display, 12-core Mac Pro

    12 cores may sound impressive, but as rumored, it’s likely just two of the latest six-core i7s working in tandem. Actually, now that I think about it, that is pretty impressive. I can’t think of who would need such ridiculous power and multi-threading, but I know my friends in ultra-HD video and effects can’t get enough Hz. I don’t know if programs like After Effects… Read More

  • Xbox 360 Slim on the way?

    Some rumors are swirling regarding a possible “slim” version of the Xbox 360. And why not? The console being sold is the same one they were selling… wow, is it more than four years ago now? Of course, the ones they sell now run a little cooler, and don’t have an enormous failure rate, so there’s that. And with the pressure on from the PS3 Slim and… well, a… Read More

  • The Nintendo DS2 is coming! The Nintendo DS2 is coming!

    So here’s a quick rundown on what’s going on with the new Nintendo DS, tentatively called the DS2 but, knowing Nintendo, they’ll probably call it the WiiDSBoard2Screen or something. The first improvement is an almost bezel-less set of two screens, so close together that they can act as one. It will also have an accelerometer and the dev kit is out and folks are currently… Read More

  • Acer looking to launch super thin laptop with ‘touch keyboard’ this year?

    Touchscreen keyboard sentiment can be divided into two camps: those who don’t mind it and those who can’t do without a physical keyboard. If you’re part of the first camp, you may be excited to hear that Acer might just be working on a notebook so thin that it uses a frameless screen and touch keyboard, according to DigiTimes.

  • Nikon teasing an EVIL camera?

    To Canon shooters, all Nikon cameras are evil. But none are truly EVIL (Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens). That may change soon, if the current tease campaign underway in France is any indication. These little cards, counting down to March 5th if we assume one per business day — coincidentally, Nikon has scheduled a press conference in the UK for that very day! So far, the… Read More

  • Rumors a-swirling: Canon to put out revised 1D, L lenses next week?

    Canon appears to have an actual sieve in charge of holding their secrets, since not a day goes by that I don’t hear about this or that new patent or camera just around the corner. Maybe it’s just their canny marketing division seeding leak sites, and if so, bravo. But to business: if you are a millionaire, this is probably a post for you, since everything involved is high-end. I… Read More
