New video of the Sony 4K camera (FZ mount, 8 Megapixels, no mirror and coming in 2014).

The video on tops shows you the new 4K Sony prototype. While there are no official specs the camera is “rumored” to have an FZ mount (like the F5 and F55 Cinealta cameras) an 8 Megapixel sensor and definitely no SLT or optical mirror. This is a pure mirrorless camera with Electronic Viewfinder. It’s going to be release sometimes in 2014 and it will compete against the Canon EOS-1D C .

I am not a big fan of videocameras with DSLR shape. Doesn’t really make a lot of sense. I think Blackmagic did a smarter move with the Pocket Cinema Camera ($955 at BHphoto). A compact video only mirrorless camera with CineRAW DNG recording and 220MBs Pro RES. Sony should so a camera like that in E-mount!

More pictures of the new Sony FF SLT (or mirrorless)

The friends over at Engadget (Click here) posted some nice new pictures of the Sony prototype camera and lenses. As you see from the image on top Sony displayed what looks to be a Full Frame DSLR shaped camera. I am not sure this has SLT may be that this is a pure mirrorless camera with DSLR shape. The camera could be a 4K competitor of the Canon EOS-1D C (here at BHphoto). Engadget reports that “Unfortunately, Sony says that these devices won’t make it to market for quite some time, so photogs will have to make do with this eye candy for now.

So this is not a pure A-mount photographers camera but more of a FZ or PL mount 4K camcorder.
