NIkon will also use the upcoming new A99 24 Megapixel FF sensor?

The exploding Nikon D800 camera with 36 Megapixel Sony manufactured sensor.

For almost a year now I am sharing with you bits of rumors about the next A99 24 megapixel SLT Full Frame camera. Now Nikonrumors reports that also Nikon will use the same sensor (of course sold a “Nikon designed”) for the next D600 FF camera. I have some doubts the rumors is true also because it’s said that the Nikon D600 will cost $1500 only! Or wait, let’s hope this is true and that Sony has to sell the A99 for $1200 in order to compete against Nikon :)

Or, maybe Nikon will help Sony for free by creating another exploding Full Frame camera! Yes, the Nikon D800 explodes as it is reported here at CanonWatch :) And also maybe because of that it’s no more on top of the Amazon ranking (Click here to see).

P.S.: Nikon claims the 24 Megapixel APS-C sensor used for the Nikon D3200 (here at Amazon) is different from the Sony A77 sensor. But I don’t believe in coincidences :)

(SR5) First picture of the NEX-F3!

This is the first leaked picture of the Sony NEX-F3! As you can see it has the same NEX-C3 16 megapixel sensor (with improved image quality due the new BIONZ processor) and it has a new built-in flash and the 180 degree tiltable LCD screen like the Samsung MV800. It will replace the current NEX-C3. Some NEX-C3 kits have been already marked as discontinued at BHphoto (Click here), Digitalrev (Click here) and very low in Stock at Amazon (Click here).

As I told you before it will be announced in mid May along the new A37 and two other new A and E mount zoom lenses!

(SR5) A37 and NEX-F3 with same 16 Megapixel sensor (and improved image quality).

Image of the current Sony A35

Maybe it’s just me but I am no big fan of the Megapixel race. So it’s good to hear from another of my trusted sources that Sony will use a 16 Megapixel sensor within the upcoming new A37 and NEX-F3. It is the same sensor of the current A35 and NEX-C3 but I have been told that there is anew BIONZ processor that improves the image quality. Let’s hope it’s true! That said the A37 will have a similar A35 design and same price of the current model. The NEX-F3 will be completely new and “innovative“.

(SR5) NEX and Alpha camera and lens announcement in mid May!

According to top sources Sony will have a new product announcement in mid May! There will be a new NEX-F3 (which I have been told is a great camera), a new A37, and two new zoom lenses (one for Alpha and one for NEX). I am particularly curious about that NEX-F3 that I have been told could become a real hotseller. Very small and sexy and a top image quality. Can’t wait to see it!

For those of you (that like me) are waiting for Full Frame news there will be no official Sony info. What Sony is doing is sharing some “unofficial” news with top photographers, dealers and journalists. And I hope reliable specs about the final A99 will spread through the web soon!

Stay tuned on SAR!

(SR5) Sony NEX-F3 with 180 degrees LCD!

Picture on top: The 180 degree LCD from the Samsung MV800.

First NEX-F3 info from trusted sources are coming in! The new NEX-F3 is coming soon and it will replace the current NEX-C3. Some NEX-C3 kits have been already marked as discontinued at BHphoto (Click here), Digitalrev (Click here) and very low in Stock at Amazon (Click here). P.S.: Thanks to the anonymous sources for sending me this.

One of the big new features coming with the new NEX-F3 is a special 180 degree LCD that works almost exactly like the current Samsung MV800 (image on top). Perfect for taking self portraits. I have no image of the camera yet but I hope sources can send me some pics soon. Or maybe you reader can help me to find some leaked image on Sony’s websites? Search for “Sony NEX-F3″ images! Thanks for the help! :)
