But, what are the cameras, which have high possibility to be announced upto 2016-2017. So in order to confirm that, we are making a list that contains the upcoming cameras of Nikon, Canon and Sony. However, you must have read or heard about Kumamoto Earthquake that badly damaged the Sony’s production center an eventually the announcement schedule of the cameras have been disrupted. We know that Sony develops sensors for other camera manufacturers too and the losses of Sony caused by the Earthquake also disturbed the announcement schedule of those camera manufactures.

Nikon D3400/ Nikon D3500–

Photographers have been waiting to keep their hands on this camera for long time, but what specifications should it implement are yet to confirm? According to the rumors so far, the camera would implement 24mp sensor, here are its expected specifications. By the way, Nikon D5500 was announced back in 2015, so most probably the Nikon D5600 will be announced either by the end of 2016 or in the initial months of 2017.

In fact, Photographers do have a lot of expectations with the Nikon D760 because it’s one primary camera of Nikon that everyone is eagerly waiting for. The current Nikon D750 has still been the demanding camera by the photographers because the camera has given the chance to the photographers to create memorable impression infront of their clients under an affordable price tag. Well, what we could expect about Nikon D760 is that the camera may have 24.3MP FX-Format CMOS Sensor (Same as D750) but according to rumors, it will not use the image processor of D750 (Expeed 4), it may use Dual Expeed 4 or Single Expeed 5. Expandable ISO may go upto 102400 and continuous shooting speed may be upto 10fps. Now the rumors started flowing through the pipes related to Nikon D760. But most probably we could see its announcement somewhere in Q4 of 2017.
It will be the successor camera for current Nikon D810. Rumors say that the camera is going to employ powerful 46 mp resolution sensor from Sony A7R II and users may also get the chance to record 4K video with this upcoming Nikon D820. The camera also rumored to have 173AF points, means the users would get a complete new camera from Nikon. By the way, Nikon is making us wait for a longer while and the photographers from different corners of the world want to ask until when they will wait. We hope 2016 is the perfect time and Nikon may show some speedy works in their announcement.
Update – Nikon D820 is the camera expected to be announced in July, 2017 with massive upgrade.
The main question regarding this upcoming camera is if it features 100X zoom or not? So far the rumors and expectations concerned the camera may come with incredible 100x optical zoom range. Check out our expectations on upcoming Nikon P1000. The current Nikon P900 is the camera that earned popularity for its brilliant 83x Zooming capability. Moreover, P1000 may feature 20/24mp resolution etc.
Update- No further or big information we have about this very anticipated camera at the moment, but most probably we could see its announcement in June of this year (2017). We will update you as soon as we get any info.
Nikon Coolpix A II–
It looks like Nikon is not serious about the announcement of Nikon Coolpix A II. No news, no rumors except expectations are circulating online. But still the camera has good chance to get included into the announcement list soon.
Rumor mills stick calm, but we expect the successor of Nikon D7200 will be a great announcement since Nikon D7200 has been around us for more that one and half years. We hope Nikon D7300 will be announced in second half year of 2017. However, CES and CP+ shows are in January and February respectively and probably Nikon would choose any one of these shows to showcase Nikon’s DX-format camera. We also hope some vast changes in this Nikon D7300 over its predecessor.

The 1″ Nikon 1 J6 Mirrorless camera would probably be announced at either Q4 of 2017 or Q1 of 2018. The rumored specifications of the camera, so far are: 4K video and Nikon Snapbridge, the wireless Function.

The camera is going to feature some incredible specifications that we might have not seen before in any other DSLR camera. And for your knowledge and so far it’s highly possible that Canon won’t announce any other DSLR camera before 5D Mark IV.

Canon 6D Mark II–
Looking at the rumors as well as the information we have so far is that Canon 6D Mark II would be probably announced in Q1 or Q2 of 2017.

Anyway, if you remember, Canon 750D was announced back in February, 2015 and until now no rumors, no information are moving around its successor Canon 800D and the reputed sources and tipsters are also unable to pick any information about this Canon upcoming camera.
But we assure you to update as soon as we get any rumor or info.
Canon SX70 HS–
We all know the current Canon SX60 HS for its powerful 65X zooming capability. However, high zoom range is its identifications, but along with 65X zoom capability the camera can also snap the sharp and clear images all due to its 16Mp resolution. Well, Canon SX60 HS was announced back in September 2014, means almost two years is about to over, but there is no appropriate news or rumors about its successor, Canon SX70 HS announcement excluding our expectations. CES as well as CP+ shows, NAB show as well are over still the sources and tipsters are silent. It means we need to expand our waiting from now to get any confirmed information.
Update – Things look better and we do expect its announcement somewhere in August.
Canon 5DS Mark II
Canon 5DS Mark II is not coming in recent time but the chances are much more in Q2 of 2018. It is going to be the replacement camera for current Canon 5DS. So far we have no good information regarding specs or anything else about this upcoming camera.
Canon G1X Mark III
The only rumor we can know about this unannounced camera is that it may come with APS-C sensor. Since the current camera is more than two years old so we do expect its upgrade in quick time. However, nothing reliable information is circulating around. But we assure to pass you as we get any.
Canon Full Frame Mirrorless Camera
Probably Canon would unveil it by the end of this year. However, we have no reliable information to tell you much more about this camera upcoming FF camera but we must sy that this full frame mirrorless fixed lens camera will be announced before any ILC FF mirrorless. According to the trending rumor this camera is under development and we will be lucky to see it very soon.
Now we are entering to the section of Sony cameras that are expected to be announced in the recent times
Sony A9– Kumamoto Earthquake really has disfigured the Sony’s schedule for their upcoming products announcement, Sony had to rework a lot probably from very begin for their products . And now the sound is coming that Sony will quick introduce one after another cameras in a little interval. So far the camera that popping up rapidly is Sony A9. If you have already looked at the Sony’s roadmap for their upcoming cameras then you must have read that A9 is still on the list for 2016 announcement. In other words, Sony A9 maybe the only cameras to be announced by the end of 2016.

Sony A9R directly means the expansion of current or recently announced Sony A9. Yes, you read right, but the problem is that if Sony is really going to give it a name tag of Sony A9R since rumors circulate around the web suggest that it could be A9S also (Name tag) that is going to feature very high resolution of around or more than 70 MP. On the other hand, its maximum features will be borrowed by its Capone Sony A9. But at the same time it looks like Sony A9 will be spitted in two version: First one that is Sony A9R could be announced this year whereas Sony A9S in next year.
Sony A7S III
We already have tossed our expectations with Sony A7S III camera that it may come with atleast around 20MP effective resolutions or etc. A7S III will be the successor of current A7S II camera, which was announced back in September 2015. After looking at the present rumors circulating online, it looks like Sony is not in hurry to make A7S III announcement.
Sony A7 III
It looks like Sony A7 III still under the development stage and unfortunately its announcement time is still not confirmed. If we look at the old rumors, then the camera was set to announce in June 2017. Since the camera is almost three years old and now its most of the specs got traditional, such as it has full HD video and traditional Image processor. So we do greatly expect that this camera would come with massive upgrade, such as 4K video, 8-10fps continuous drive etc.
But, Sony A7000 will be released soon, which will be the successor camera for current and highly popular Sony A6000. However, A6000 came in February, 2014 means two years over but its successor announcement is still pending. As we have already told you that Sony has bunch of cameras to announce but after looking at the rumors one can say that Sony would possibly release this camera in the next year. In the end, Rumors are constantly floating over the web, so let us wait and see which is going to be correct.
Sony A7R III
With Sony A7R II, the photographers reached to the next level. Also, it is Sony’s most popular mirrorless camera that surpassed other mirrorless cameras of these genres. Sony A7R III was expected to come in q1 of 2017. However, it looks like this camera will be announced at any point of 2017 with enhanced specs.
So far the rumor we know about Sony RX5 is that it will have the same sensor, touchscreen and connectivity as of Sony A6500 and it will be APS-C sized fixed lens camera. As we expect when it is going to borrow most of the specs from Sony A6500 then it is fair to believe that it must have the same AF system as of Sony A6500 that is 4D FOCUS with 425 Phase-Detect Points. Moreover, it is rumored to use the RX1R II EVF, body and shutter as well, plus the upcoming camera may also integrate a 23mm f/1.8 lens and Image stabilization. Additionally, According to the rumor, the Sony RX V is very likely to be announced at CP+ show, February next year in Japan with the asking price more than $1000.
