Want a fancier Canon mirrorless camera? Canon might soon satisfy your needs with a Limited Gold Edition of its latest APS-C mirrorless, the Canon EOS M200.
At the time of writing it’s not clear if the golden EOS M200 will be released only in Japan. and if it will ship when the normal EOS M200 starts to ship (that’s on October 10-12, 2019).

It seems Nikon is set to soon announce a new mirrorless camera in the Z lineup, the Z50.
The Nikon Z50 will have an APS-C sensor. That means the Z50 is the first (and so far only) APS-C camera in the Z mirrorless lineup.
- Nikon Z50 price: €900 in most European countries (around $980)
- Nikon Z50 kit price with the new Nikkor Z 16-55mm (or 16-50mm) f/3.5-6.3 VR lens: €1,100 (around $1,200)
- The Nikon Z50 will have a rear screen that can be tilted downwards for selfies but it will not work with selfie sticks
- 4k video
- Maximum shutter speed: 1/4000
- The Nikon Z50 will be a direct Sony a6400 camera competitor
- 20MP APS-C sensor (based on the D500 sensor)
- Single SD card slot
- 3″ pivoted LCD
- 11 fps
- No IBIS
- Fixed EVF (not removable EVF as described in the latest design patents)
- New Nikon EN-EL25 battery
- Announcement date: October 10th
- The official announcement could be as early as next week
- The Z50 will be the equivalent of the D7xxx DSLR cameras
- Two new APS-S mirrorless lenses: Z-Nikkor 16-55mm f/3.5-6.3 and Z-Nikkor 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3
- The Nikon Z50 will look very similar to the Nikon Z1 prototype camera – it was described to me as a smaller version of the Z6/Z7
A few days after the rumor suggesting future Canon cameras featuring an APS-C sensor will have an “all-new” sensor with 24MP, the same source now reports 32MP might be possible.
We expect Canon to replace the EOS 80D and EOS 7D Mark II, possibly with one new camera for both, and one or two models in the EOS M line-up. All latest Canon APS-C cameras already have a 24MP sensor.
Both 24MP and 32MP appear unrealistic in our opinion (both rumors are rated accordingly). At the end of the day a new APS-C sensor with 28MP seems to be the most likely. Take everything with a grain of salt (so far).

It took them a lot of time but eventually Ricoh announced the replacement for their much beloved Ricoh GR II compact camera with APS-C sensor and fixed lens. Guess Leica should have a close look at the design of the Ricoh before touting their overpriced toys for “letting you go unnoticed on the streets“. If I want to be unnoticed on the streets I’d go for Ricoh GR III and not for a ridiculously priced Leica camera.
Ricoh launches RICOH GR III high-end, compact digital camera
Newest model in the popular RICOH GR series delivers exceptional image quality in a smaller, lightweight body, making it ideal for street photography
WEST CALDWELL, NJ, February 21, 2019 – Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation today announced the launch of the highly anticipated RICOH GR III camera. The new camera is the latest model in the RICOH GR series, a lineup of high-end digital cameras providing exceptional image quality in a compact, lightweight body ideal for street photography, travel and capturing candid images.
The RICOH GR III features a newly designed lens, image sensor and imaging engine that further upgrade image quality, enhance functionality and improve usability. The 18.3mm F2.8 lens delivers exceptional imaging performance with a slim design, consisting of six optical elements in four groups, while retaining the 28mm angle of view. It produces the clearest, sharpest images in GR-series history while reducing distortion and chromatic aberration. It also comes equipped with a macro shooting capability with a minimum focusing distance of six centimeters.
Another weird rumor to report.
It’s suggested Canon might use the new Sony IMX571 image sensor in an upcoming APS-C camera system. No hints if it will be a MILC or a DSLR.
The Sony IMX571 sensor is back-illuminated, has a resolution of 26MP and does 16 frame per second.
Despite Canon used Sony sensors in the past for their Powershot cameras, we do not think a Sony sensor will be featured on DSLR or mirrorless camera. We did not get any suggestion pointing in this direction.
