Zeiss Full Frame Lenses in the Works for Sony NEX E-Mount

The next big thing for Sony E-Mount is full frame – particularly so, given that the Sony VG900 and Sony RX1 have been making big waves as full frame cameras. Of course, the VG900 features is a NEX camera with an E-Mount; however, only Alpha-mount full frame lenses can take advantage of that sensor courtesy of an adapter. And then, there’s the RX1, which has a lens affixed to the camera in a rather compact package for a full frame shooter.

As SonyAlphaRumors points out though, full frame NEX options are coming and Zeiss is planning to deliver three new full frame prime lenses for Sony NEX E-Mount cameras.

While these lenses are purportedly on the road map, we won’t see them for over a year when they arrive in June 2014.

Sony 4K Camcorder Unveiled at CES 2013

Sony XAVC 4K Camcorder

At it’s CES 2013 press conference on Monday, Sony unveiled a concept model of an upcoming 4K consumer camcorder. Sony had a mock-up of this 4K camcorder under glass in their booth at CES.

While Sony referred to this camera as a consumer model, it is clear from looking at it that the camera is at least a prosumer model in terms of available features – if not a low-end pro model. [Read more…]
