Sony has announced that Alpha A68 SLT camera will be making its way to the US in April 2016. It has been quite a long time since the US market saw an A-mount camera and we’ve wondered whether the A-mount system was dead. [Read more…]
The message is clear. Sony is not messing around.
Sony just released a pair of impressive cameras geared toward consumers and enthusiasts with the RX100 IV and the RX10 II. Rounding out the trio is something for the pro and serious amateur photographer – the Sony Alpha A7R II, which features a whopping 42.4MP back-illuminated full frame sensor. [Read more…]
Sony has taken official wraps off of the A3500, which was leaked last week. The camera seems to simply be a rebadge of the current A3000 model with a lower caliber kit lens.
The 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens in the A3000 kit offers image stabilization, while the 18-50mm f/4-5.6 kitted with the A3500 is slower (at f/4 on the wide end) and is not equipped with optical image stabilization.
The A3500 retails for $499AU only in Australia for the time being. Meanwhile the A3000 (with a better lens) remains a ridiculous bargain at $294 for its current sale price and is on backorder because of it. Even when it’s not on sale the A3000 retails for only $399.
Sony is expected to officially announce the new A6000 mirrorless camera tomorrow; however, we get a sneak peak a little early thanks to this image of the new E-mount mirrorless camera that leaked out.
The A6000 continues the rebranding process of Sony’s E-mount cameras, which were previously branded as NEX models. Since Sony consolidated the Alpha branding, new mirrorless cameras have dropped the NEX moniker in favor of the Alpha moniker and have simply been referred to as an A* series model number.

A newly-leaked spy shot of a Hasselblad SLR looks to be yet another Sony camera with a fancy facelift. However, this time, the camera looks like an Alpha A-mount camera.
Sony has confirmed that future mirrorless cameras and DSLR-style cameras will be branded under the Alpha name, and that there will no longer be any other “NEX” cameras. (see the 3:10 mark in the video from Sony below) [Read more…]
After the recent introduction of the Sony A3000 (an E-mount camera), I have been wondering whether or not Sony would move exclusively to the E-mount and leave the legacy A-mount system in the past. If statements attributed to Sony UK’s head of digital imaging, Frederik Lange, are accurate, then Sony plans to keep on making A-mount cameras. [Read more…]
Sony is due to officially announce the ILC-3000 (aka A3000) this week, which explains why were are not starting to see images of the camera leak out. The ILC-3000 is expected to sport a 20MP APS-C sensor and feature Sony’s E-mount instead of the A-mount found in earlier DSLR-styled Alpha cameras. [Read more…]
