Photoclub Alpha reports:

INSIDE sources – mainly people who have been invited to press launch events – confirm that Sony is to show its new Advanced Amateur camera, thought to be called the Alpha 300, on Tuesday September 4th. A press conference is being held in Italy, and journalists from European mainland countries have been invited to attend. As yet, I am unaware of any British journalists attending, and have not received an invitation myself.

. . . .

It is almost certainly APS-C format, 12.x megapixels CMOS, 5.5 frames per second, ISO to 3200, improved AF, 3 inch screen or very much improved 2.5 inch, 95 per cent view 90 per cent scale (or vice-versa) optical glass prism viewfinder, AF assist on the body, improved flash, same basic shutter speed range as A100, slightly altered mirror/shutter action, very fast card writing, some water and weatherproofing upgrades, generally better response, altered user interface; much better high ISO noise, further enhancements to SSS. . . .

WoooHooo! As a long time Minolta guy with big money in big Minolta glass, this is music to my ears. I shot a wedding this past weekend on the A-100 and thought my arm was going to break of from the lack of vertical grip. I am really looking forward to seeing where Sony takes the line.
