(SR3) Did Zeiss just “leak” the Sony A7rII with 56+ Megapixel sensor?

Share

56Megapixel

Dear SAR readers, take a look at that image: flickr.com/photos/carlzeisslenses/17123880790/in/set-72157651844166820. Zeiss says it has been shot with the Sony A7r and the Batis 85mm lens. But notice two strange things:

1) The resolution of the image is 56 Megapixel (the image ratio is not 3:2. So it may be even slightly cropped form an original 59MP sensor image!).
2) The 56MP image has no camera name exif info (has been removed by Zeiss).

Now we have three possibilities:
1) Zeiss up-sized the images for some weird reason I cannot understand.
2) This is a A7II multishift created image (feature that will may be added in a future update). But it’s unlikely to be used on non-static objects and without tripod use (reflection in the eye shows photographer handholding the cam!).
3) Or they did shoot those images with the A7rII and then removed the EXIF info. What’s your guess?

The new A7rII is rumored to be announced between mid May and early June at last. Stay tuned on SAR!

(SR3) Few Sony A7rII info….has it a new RAW engine?

A7r

An anonymous source sent me this:

“As far as I have understood it, the A7R II is still just 36MP, with IBIS, better ISO and speed. It will come with some other features, we’ve been told :)”

And another source also added that Sony is working on a new RAW engine. It could be implemented on the new A7rII.

The A7rII, A6100 and new RX cameras will be announced within mid May and end of June in (likely) separate announcements.

(SR3) A6100 has no 4K yet?

The rumor comes from an old source who shared correct info in the past. After two-year absence he contacted me back. This doesn’t mean we can be sure the info he shares is correct. As it happened in the past also those kind of source may get wrong info from their contacts. Anyway, this is what he wrote to me:

there’s no A7000 (NEX-7 replacement), but rather an A6000 replacement coming soon. The A6100 has 24.3MP with 1080p XAVCS codec, so looks like no 4K for now. But this is just the info from the importer, so not 100% confirmed :-/

So far the rumors are that new E-mount stuff will come soon: The A7rII will be very likely announced in May. The A6100 may come son the same event or a month later in late June.

First (99% Fake) image and specs of the new A7sII floating on the web!

SonyA7sII

A couple of readers sent me that image that is floating on websites and forums (like Douban, DCfever and so on). I am 99,9% sure it’s fake. Although it’s easy to guess that the real future A7sII will be similar to the current A7II. The specs are also too good to be true. Or will Sony surprises us?

To SAR readers: RX rumor recap!

Bildschirmfoto 2015-04-15 um 07.55.09
RX100m4 may has a larger FT sensor similar to the one of the LX100.

Yesterdays Sony announcement create quite some disappointment. And a lesson I learned is that I have to make it very clear what’s a rumor and what’s a speculation of mine. The rumor I posted about the April 23 event were right (SR5 rumor 1 and SR5 rumor 2). While my speculations (here) that those two “new cameras” could be new RX cameras were wrong. Knowing that there was no E-mount stuff coming on that event I simply deducted that those could be RX cameras. Didn’t expect Sony to display the two 30x cameras to the European press (See for example Fotopolis London report). There was no wrong SR5 rumor but just me having wrong speculations. And I learned that I have to be careful whenever I express my private deductions and hopes! Such a mistake I will not repeat again.

Moving on: Here is the RX camera rumors recap:
(SR5) There will be at least one new RX camera announcement in May-June (SAR article here).
(SR4) It’s rumored that there will be a new RX100m4 camera. Probably with FT size sensor in RX100m3 alike body (SAR article here).
(SR3) RX1X (unclear when it will be released and what kind of camera it is) (SAR article here).

So let’s restart from these three rumors. Please weight the ranking of the rumors and always be aware this is a rumor and not a press release news site :)
