We’re expecting to see the new, full frame Sony NEX mirrorless cameras next week. And it looks like we have our first leak of the cameras – albeit as a tiny portion of the overall display for the unveiling. [Read more...]
The rumored full frame Sony NEX cameras are expected to arrive later this month – on or around October 16. [Read more...]
Another interesting leak situation happened with Sony’s rumored NEX-7R, which is expected to serve as the replacement for the highly-regarded Sony NEX-7.
As noted by Sony Alpha Rumors:
New York fashion Photographer Clayton Nelson shared a couple of pictures he has taken “with the Sony NEX-7R, a new prototype APS sensor digital camera” (these are his own words).
The shared images have sinced been removed from Nelson’s Facebook account; however, there seems to be a lot coming together that makes this sound very legit.
Previous rumors suggested that the NEX-7 replacement would be unveiled in October 2013 (likely prior to PhotoPlus 2013 that occurs at the end of October). This would be a big camera for this rather large show and would give Sony a nice chunk of press for the prosumer crowd leading into the holiday season.
Additionally, the Sony NEX-7 successor (previously referred to as the NEX-7N) has been rumored to stick with a 24MP APS-C sensor instead of pushing its luck with a higher-MP offering.
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...]
Rumored specs of the upcoming A77 successor, which will presumably carry the A79 badge suggest that it will sport a whopping 32MP APS-C sensor. Recall that prior rumors (which are still standing strong) pointed to an A-mount camera that eschewed the current translucent mirror technology in favor of a full-on mirrorless design. [Read more...]
Want to take better photos with your smartphone? How about getting a better camera?
If this allegedly leaked image of a Sony lens attaching to a Xperia smartphone is the real deal, then that’s what Sony has in mind. Take a lens with a built-in sensor, battery, memory, etc. (basically a full-on camera packed into a lens) and make it mountable to your smartphone. Then, you use your camera app on your phone to control the “lens” and wirelessly transfer images to your phone’s camera roll. [Read more...]
