Things are heating up in the world of camera rumors! Maybe it's the onset of summer in the southern hemisphere, but there is so much chatter about upcoming products and it feels like new cameras are around every corner.

While there are obviously plenty of mirrorless camera rumors – particularly with the official launch of the Nikon Z6 III on June 17, along with the Olympic season that traditionally welcomes new flagship cameras – what's even cooler is that there are so many camera rumors about DSLRs and even film cameras
