And here it is the new “Exmor RS” sensor!

Most of you were right guys! The added “S” letter within the new “Exmor RS” sensor brand stays for “Stacked”. The full description of the new technology is available here at I guess these kind of sensors will find their use in cellulars and compact cameras and not so on larger sensor cameras.

Sony announces the new NEX-EA50! And a new Power Zoom too!!!!

Sony just released a new E-mount camcorder named NEX-EA50. It’s very similar to the NEX-FS100 but has a “more affordable price point than ever before” – about £2,700. The other very interetsing news is that for the first time Sony released an E-mount 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 OSS Power Zoom!!! It has continuous variable iris and Optical Steady Shot image stabilisation with Active Mode, which should give a more stable shot. lens is electronically controlled via either the zoom rocker lever on the camcorder grip or the top handle, offering either a constant zoom speed or smooth, slow zoom.

Features of the NEX-EA50:
– Exmor APS-C/Super35mm HD CMOS sensor is claimed to offer low noise and high sensitivity in low light conditions. It also enables 1080 progressive and interlace recording with 50/60Hz selection at 50p/25p/50i or 60p/30p/24p/60i. It records AVCHD 4:2:0 at up to 28Mbps.
– It will capture 16.1 megapixel still pictures with RAW format support.
– two-channel XLR audio (an ECM-XM1 Shotgun microphone is included with the NEX-EA50H); Linear PCM audio; time code; user bit; and built-in GPS.
– Sony’s HXR-FMU128 (128GB) flash memory unit can dock directly to the camcorder for simultaneous backup recording. The camcorder is also compatible with Sony’s new Mirroring Memory Stick (MS-PX64/32/16), the world’s first memory card with mirroring. This enables the card to deliver higher reliability and data security through a dual recording (mirroring) function. The PX Series cards will be available from September, in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions.

Sony NEX and Alpha Hack Project officially started! Add your wishlist!

More Good news guys!

The NEX and SLT hacking project is getting serious! It has his own forum at and is supported by the well known Panasonic hacker Vitaly Kiselev. He is well known for the “famous” GH2 hacking that made that camera pretty popular under filmmakers. Let’s hope this is a good “Omen” for our SLT and NEX hacks :)

The hacker group around the main leader “Someone 1.00” is now asking you guys for the firmware wish list for SLT cameras (Here is the link) and NEX cameras (Here is the link). Please be precise and concise.

I think we are on the edge of a new incredibly exciting time for SLT and NEX owners. That’s why I ask all Sony forum and blog admins to link to the project! We have to push it! :)
