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?

Canon’s new Flagship compact camera!


The brand new Canon G1 X could  be an ideal camera for Street Photo.

With it’s 14.3 Large CMOS Sensor, 14Mp, and high ISO capabilities, not to mention the 14bit RAW files and fully manual controls.

Other nice features apart from it inconspicous size and stealthy colour, is the Full HD video and built in ND filters.

This camera will be priced around £799 (£699 @ Jessops) and should be due out on February 2012
