Question to the top source who shared the correct RX1rII and A99II info

There is one very top source who shared 100% correct info on the RX1rII and A99II. And as he is sharing the info anonymously via our contact form I have to public this post to be sure he read me.

Question to source:

First of all thanks for the info. I know it’s not easy to share Sony information. I have a short question: Can you give us an update about the next High End FF E-mount camera? Like possible release time and sensor info. And is there also a way to contact you via email to avoid chatting through official SAR posts :) Thanks!

And if you have some “rumor” to share just send me an anonymous messages here. Please use an Pseudonym so that I can recognize you in the future:

Your name (not! required)

Email (not required)


Note: If you plan to send more rumors use a Pseudonym to be recognizeable. Thanks!

Sony and Profoto announce Collaboration and first interoperable product for serious photographers

Press text:

At Photokina 2016 in Cologne, Germany, Sony today announceda collaborationwith Profoto with the aim of providingvisionary photographers a platform to bring their creative and ambitious visions to life.

This collaboration allows for optimised compatibility between Profoto flashes and light shaping tools and Sony interchangeable lens cameras (ILC). Sony has licensed the technical specifications forfour of its ILC models to Profoto which enables them to develop product which provides a rich light shaping experience for Sony α camera users.

Yosuke. Aoki, Head of Pan European Product Marketing, Digital Imaging and Vice President of Sony Europe Ltd. commented: “The passion for enabling great photography is one that we share with Profoto and we are excited that Sony α users will be able to broaden their shooting possibilities.”

The first product in the Profoto line-up to benefit from the collaboration is the Profoto Air Remote TTL-S that wirelessly integrates a Profoto AirTTL flash with select Sony αcamerasi. Air Remote TTL-S is a small, wireless radio transmitter that attaches to the Sony camera’s hotshoe. The remote allows TTL metering with any Profoto AirTTL flash. In TTL Mode, the user just points and shoots, and the Air Remote TTL-S will communicate with the flash to automatically give a perfect exposure. The Air Remote TTL-S also comes with patent-pending Profoto High-speed Sync technology – faster, more powerful and more consistent than any other HSS solution on the market.

The Air Remote TTL-S system will be available globally in early 2017, priced at approximately €310. Full technical details can be seen here.

For more information please contact the Sony team at Hope&Glory on / 0203 588 9730

Current compatible cameras are α7 II, α7R II, α7S II and α99 II
