You have to watch this: “Playmemoriescameraapps” website for the NEX-5R (and upcoming NEX-6)

Share

The NEX-5R has been announced and the NEX-6 is coming next week. Booth have Application support and if you want to see how it works check out that well made site made by Sony: www.playmemoriescameraapps.com. Meantime NEX-5R preorders seem to be very low according to Amazon ranking (Click here). As yous ee there is no 5R within the top 100 while the $100 discount on the NEX-5N is selling well at Amazon (Click here) and BHphoto too (Click here).

And here comes the NEX-5R preorder link roundup including a reminder to my new still in very beta phase AlphaCameraDeals.com website:

USA:
Black NEX-5R body links to Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto.
Black NEX-5R with kit lens at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto.
Silver NEX-5R with kit lens at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto.
White NEX-5R with kit lens at Adorama, BHphoto.

Europe:
Black NEX-5R with kit lens Sonystore DE-UK-FR-IT-ES-NL-SE-FI-CH
Silver NEX-5R with kit lens at Sonystore DE-UK-FR-IT-ES-NL-SE-FI-CH
White NEX-5R with kit lens at Sonystore DE-UK-FR-IT-ES-NL-SE-FI-CH
Important personal note: The next months I will create a lot of new features around my parallell AlphaCameraDeals.com website. The idea is to separate Deals news from SonyAlphaRumors. For now I will list all preorder options ont his website (like for the NEX-5R) If you are interested in getting detailed and localized Sony deals info subscribe the RSS feed and join the Facebook page. Thanks!

Gossip time! Carlos Boozer buys the Sony A77 :)

SAR reader Sean sent me this image and message: “Hey! I love your site to death, and I thought some readers might enjoy this. NBA star Carlos Boozer just bought an A77 from my store in Chicago. Viva alpha!

I hope Carlos will not go mad when he will discover that the A99 is coming out soon. He should become a SAR reader too :)

P.S.: Carlos Boozer on Wikipedia.

Zeiss launches new CP.2 E-mount Full Frame lenses..right in time for the FF NEX camcorder!

Last week I reported how Sony will announce an E-Mount Full Frame camcorder on September 12th. It’s the VG900 and will be priced a little bit above 3.000 Euro/Dollars. Today Zeiss announced E-mount lenses that will cover the full Full Frame sensor size! With Full Frame I mean the standard photographic size of 36x24mm!

The two lenses announced are:
The CZ.2 70/200/T2.9 E -> Click here to get a shock on the price :)
The CP.2 25/T2.1 -> more info at Zeiss homepage

The A99, the NEX-6, the VG900, all new Alpha and E-mount lenses will be announced on September 12th afternoon (London time).

Thanks Eddy
