Sony's new RX100M3 can't stop leaking, and hot on the heels of the full spec list come images showing the camera and its unusual pop-up viewfinder. The compact 20.1-megapixel shooter manages to squeeze an electronic viewfinder (EVF) into its pocketable body, with a 1.4m dot resolution for those times you don't want to use the 3-inch adjustable display.
Sony has taken a scalpel to the a7, chopping open its full-frame mirrorless camera to show off what's going on inside the unusual shooter. The video - which also shows the results of cutting a Vario-Tessar FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS lens in half like a sub - gives an inkling of just how crammed the camera's internals are.
Sony has revealed the new Alpha A77 II DSLR, updating the A77 and A700 with a new autofocus system, BIONZ X processing, and a claimed 20-percent bump in light sensitivity over its predecessor. The new camera now packs a 79-point phase detection AF system and supports up to f/2.8 aperture, while the sensor is 24.3-megapixels as per the old version, albeit with a new structure that Sony claims makes it considerably more precise than the outgoing camera.
Sigma has announced the pricing and availability on a new lens that it first announced during CES 2014 earlier this year.

Sigma notes the lens is aimed at photography and videography.
Nikon is always working on new digital cameras and some rumored specifications for a camera set to launch soon have now surfaced. The camera in question is the Nikon P700 compact ultra zoom. This camera isn’t to be confused with the Coolpix P7000 camera that Nikon launched back in 2010. The biggest feature that the rumored specs highlight is a big 1-inch Aptina made image sensor.
Sony has revealed the Alpha A7S, capable of 4K video and delivering a vast ISO range of 50 to 409,600. Billed the world's first full-frame sensor camera that's capable of full pixel read-out - without any pixel binning process - for movie and 4K HDMI video output, the A7S joins the Alpha A7 and A7S as a compact, interchangeable-lens alternative to bulky DSLRs and video cameras.
