2012 A fine year for photographers!

January 15, 2012 § 7 Comments

2012 promises to be a fine year for new and second hand cameras.

We can look forward to:


New Flagship DSLR’s:

Canon 1D X

Nikon D4


New Flagship compact / mirrorless:

Canon G1 X

FujiFilm X Pro 1

Nikon 1

New Fullframe Professional DSLR’s:

Canon 5D Mkiii      To be announced 1st week of March

Nikon D800


New Fullframe Rangefinder:

Leica M10?


As well as all these exciting new camera each with their own strengths and weakness, we can also look forward to a drop in the price of second hand quality cameras. And remember it is never too late to try out Analog film photography to with great cameras of the past, that can still produce stunning photos.

The two cameras I am personally excited about it the Canon 5D Mkii replacement and the FujiFilm X Pro 1.

What are your thoughts and plans in regards to camera bodies, new or second hand in 2012?

Or are you just satisfied with what you have?

The Canon 1DX will be be among us by March 2012.

It’s main features are:
18 MP Fullframe CMOS Sensor
61 point focus system
Dual DIGIC 5 processors
12fps for RAW shots, 14fps for JPEG
ISO 50 – 51,200

While this be Canon’s new flagship Camera, it will be interesting to see what filters down to the rest of the Canon line, especially the Canon 5D MKii and 7D replacements.
