Now that Nikon is done making their big reveals when it comes to new cameras, it’s time for the other manufacturers to do their thing. Word is that Canon is setting up to reveal an exciting new camera on April 15 at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB). The event is still over a month away, but here’s to hoping we get a glimpse of what’s in store through leaks that might be dropped prior to the launch.

Another player in the industry gearing up for a new camera announcement is Sony.
