KONICA MINOLTA LEAKS!

See link: http://digitalstar.com/Minoltalover

There are:

-A hot new scanner
-Several ultra-compact digicams with 2.8-3.7 3X zooms (instead of the usual
2.8-4.9)
-4 new SLRs (Is one of them digital? They all appear to be film to me.)
-2 new prosumer models (8 MP "A2" and 4 MP "Z2")
-New Zoom lens
-more on the way!

However... (please add your favorite fanfare here)

What do you think about a 900.000 pixel EVF? I'm willing to bet they are using a full color (same as old D7xx 320x240 EVF), FULL VGA resolution 60 Hz refresh rate micro display module made by CyberDisplay.

The 900k figure could be just marketroid talk. 3x640x480 = 921600, just like the (76800 pixel) QVGA module used in the D7xx was marketed as a 220 000 pixel display.

The days of optical view-finders are numbered.

Contrary to other people I actually like EVFs... I love the WYSIWYG, real-time histogram, and the quick review modes which are notably absent on my 10D. Shooting nightscenes is amazing with an EVF!

BTW CyberDisplay is made by Kopin, are they using the same one? ie 640x480 x 3 sequencing colors (3 x 60 frames per second R, G, and B) 8)
How about using two non-sequencing! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Firstly I haven't looked into the other Cameras on the digitalstar site
but I don't really get the new Konica Monolta Xg
Same Camera Body with differn't logo and lens number on it, just that it still has "3.2 MP" on the side of it, the DiMAGE X series should be going into the realm of 4 MP by now shouldn't they?
the controls look a lil nicer, but the LCD seems to be the same size, thought that might have gotten a bit bigger (though I guess LCD's are in really high deman right now)
