Sony will keep developing the RX Full Frame line! How should the RX2 be?



Exposure Magazine reports a sentence from Danu Sagoro, Product Marketing Manager, Digital Imaging Group, PT Sony Indonesia. He says: “Sony is now developing full-frame camera families consisting of full-frame Alpha, full-frame handycam and full-frame Cyber-shot families,

He clearly hinted that further new RX models will be developed and I am asking our nice SAR readers how a future RX2 should be….some ideas?

(SR5) New NEX-7n to be announced in April. With new 24 Megapixel sensor!


Image of the current NEX-7 model. There will be no big changes on the NEX-7n camera shape.

Sony just announced the new A58, NEX-3n and the three A-mount lenses but as I told you you will only have to wait one month to see some more exiting new stuff! According to multiple sources (and by the way…Thank you all!) there will be a new announcement in early April. And that time we are certainly going to see the new “Sony NEX-7n“. The shape of the camera will not be that different from the current NEX-7. But I have been told Sony worked a lot to address and improve many if the limits of the current NEX-7 model. First of all it will have a new 24 Megapixel sensor with phase detection pixels on sensor. I repeat, it’s a new sensor and not the same of the current NEX-7. One source told me the new sensor delivers 1/3 of a stop better quality.

Also the internal electornic circuitry has been completely redesigned and I have been told there will be no more over heating issues (Hurray!). And one source just told me the EVF is amazing! I am currently contacting the trusted sources to confirm the specs I got about the camera. I will post them as soon as they confirm them.

For Sources: Again, thanks to all sources for helping me out. I may ask them if they can tell me some more bits about the other new stuff like E-mount lenses and other cameras. Thanks :)

For Readers: Spread the news folks. Exciting time is coming and you may subscribe the RSS feed (Click here) and Twitter (Click here) stream and the Facebook fan page (Click here) in order to not miss any news!


Reminder (SR = Sonyrumor):
SR1=probably fake rumor
SR2=rumor from unknown sources
SR3=50% chance it is correct
SR4=rumor from known sources
SR5=almost certainly correct!

Something else: There is a rumor about a new Full Frame Sony NXcam.

This is neither an A-mount nor an E-mount rumors but some of you might be happy to hear this anyway. So here is the news. One SAR source heard that a new “full frame professional NXCAM” will be announced for the upcoming NAB show in Las Vegas (April).

If some other sources has info about the upcoming camcorders (also E-mount camcorders) than feel free your info anonymously by using the contact form on the right sidebar. Thanks!

(SR5) Sony NEX-7n to be announced in one month!

With the recent price drops the NEX-7 is again back on the top of the most sold mirrorless camera list at Amazon (here is the ranking). So is that the right time to buy the camera? Nope! :)

Trusted sources told us that the new NEX-7n is going to be announced in one month and it will be available in stores by May. The new NEX-7n will look almost the same of the current NEX-7 but feature major changes inside the body. Every aspect has been improved and the main goal from Sony was to outperform the top MFT model like the Panasonic GH3 and Olympus OMD. Sensor, viewfinder and autofocus have been improved. I am working on the specs right now. And there may be some new E-mount lens too (like the Zeiss zoom).

Meantime keep in mind: Next Monday (Feb 25th) Sony will announce the new A58 and NEX-3n and three A-mount lenses (including the Zeiss). You should be online at 6-8am London time to follow my live coverage of the new products with links to reviews and tests. And one month after we will have an even bigger NEX related announcement with the new NEX-7n and probably some new high quality lenses. The A77 successor will come right after the NEX-7n. In short, stay tuned on SAR! Don’t miss any rumor and subscribe the RSS feed (Click here) and Twitter (Click here) stream and the Facebook fan page (Click here)!

P.S.: Thanks to all sources sending me the NEX-7n info. Give me some time to double check them before I post them on SAR. And you may help me out on the new E-mount lens info too? Thanks!

(SR5) Sony A58: new sensor, new autofocus system and also new viewfinder!

I keep getting short updates about the next Sony A58. Not only will it be the first camera using the new generation Sony sensor (with 1 stop improvement) and a new autofocus system. It will also have a completely new OLED viewfinder. Got no info about what’s so new on that EVF. I hope sources can tell me more about this after reading this post! Thanks!

That little A58 sounds every day more interesting! And keep in mind, the announcement is scheduled for Monday February 25. Likely at around 6-8 am in the morning London time. So be sure to be online on SAR by that time! Will make a live coverage of the event!
