The new Sony A7rIi is finally shipping in Europe. The camera is that highly requested and full of WOW factor that John Wilhelm kicked out his wife from his bed to sleep with the new toy :)

Joke a part a more serious list of user first impressions report can be read at SonyAlphaForum.

Found via SonyAlphaRumors.

A7rII preorder list:
In USA: at Amazon, BHphoto, Adorama, SonyStore US, FocusCamera, Uniquephoto.
In Europe at Sony DE, UK, FR, IT, ES, NL, BE, CH, AT, SE, FI, NO, PT. Wex UK.
In Asia at Digitalrev, CameraPro.

Canon announced the new "ME20F-SH". A Cube form camera with EF mount and no mirror and no EVF. Canon says the camera "delivers exceptionally high sensitivity to capture Full HD video with a minimum subject illumination of less than 0.0005 lux". This means it records in the dark at up to 4 million ISO! Take that Sony A7s :)

The camera main use will be in the surveillance market but also in cinema and tv production where you absolutely need those crazy ISO's.

The camera uses a Full Frame 2,26 MP sensor and will cost $30,000 when it ships in December. Here are the full specs:

    Like surveilling from the air conditioned room across the street? That's the government's favorite flavor of field documentary… fits the price tag, too.

    yes, but in the press release they talk about "field documentary" for night shooting, so stay near the hot areas only....

    $30,000 "field" camera that can't withstand subzero temps and has all sorts of vents and open terminals?… You're misreading the target audience. It's not for the field of nature photography or videography.

    It's for the field agents.

Digicameinfo spotted the first pictures of the very soon to be announced new Olympus E-M10II. There is no info on specs yet but I suppose the camera will sue the current 16MP sensor and just feature some small evolutionary specs.

TheNakedCamera spotted a small plugin called Lightroom Dashboard. It's made by a single person named "Cheyne". The APP analyzes all your pictures and shows you in beautiful stats:

your most common apertures
your most common focal lengths
your photo volumes over the past 2 years
how much usage your lenses get
how much usage your cameras get,

Cheyne promised to develop further the new app to include plenty of more features.

We got a highly reliable information that Olympus will announce the E-M10II in August. Hope to get the exact date soon. Specs so far are unknown but I have been told to not expect anything revolutionary. For that you will have to wait for the E-M1II coming in 2016!

    Seems has grown bigger. The new mode drive is moved to the right side, and on/off from the bottom right to upper left. Both help on usability.
    Images leaked at digicame-info:

Yep Sony did it and the A7rII shutter is really way more silent and proof ready for a wedding shooting! Just hit the play button on the video to hear the difference!

    Original a7. Got 5 and a half hours on one and a half batteries with flash used for about 50 shots (600 total). I think 5 batteries should do the trick to be on the safe side.

    Thanks Taran,

    That helps a lot. Sometimes I see people mention they carry 10 batteries in and that seems a little excessive.

    Sony battery life varies wildly between bodies and settings within E-mount system. A sony NEX-7 with manual focus nikon adapted lens and I get 1000+ shots per charge. Working the same scene wide angle, with say, a Zeiss Touit e-mount 12mm at my ...

    It's probably not worth the research since it's more likely to be used on the GH3 and GH4 for film-making.

    Look at the firmware history and you will see Olympus cameras mentioned. It should work fine on your Oly

    Fine, but why not for Olympus cameras?
