Rumor correction: ILC-3000 has no In Body stabilization.

There is a correction to report:

The ILC-3000 E-mount cameras has no built-in Image Stabilization. It looks like there was an error on the camera specification list (probably while Sony copied the A-mount camera spec table or so).

Still valid: The ILC-3000 has a brand new 20.1 Megapixel sensor. it will be interesting to see how good the new sensor generation is! The camera costs 300 pounds and is aimed to compete against the Canon Rebel series.

Stay tuned on SAR. The chance is good that Sony will announce the new NEX cameras and lenses at 6-7am London time!

(SR5) Sony Germany creates the ILC-category. Announcement tomorrow at 5-6 am London time!

I know some here didn’t believe Sony could call the new DSLR shaped E-mount camera…”ILC-3000“. But as a proof just click over at Sony Germany. They just added the ILC category in their menu. Actually it’s “ILCE”, the “E” stays for E-mount.

Anyway, we now have seen images and specs of all cameras. At that point I kindly invite you to follow the announcement live on SonyAlphaRumors tomorrow (August 27) at 5-6am London time. As usual I will be here to update you with links to all reviews, news, image samples and preorders.

QX, NEX-FF and A-mount rumors to come after the announcement:
The QX “lens-cameras”will be announced on September 4th (along the Honami Z1). And the most exciting time is still ahead of us. Sony is trying to keep it very secret, but I know the NEX-FF is coming. And let’s hope some A-mount news is on the horizon too. That’s going to be intriguing :)

(SR5) One more A3000 picture. Has in body IS.

DukeOfDutch (Click here) posted one more picture of the new A3000 (or ILC-3000) E-mount camera. And another source just told me that the camera has (UPDATE: has not a body stabilization) and metal mount. So now we know it costs 300 pounds (body only), has a new 20.1 Megapixel sensor, 100-16,000 ISO, 230K LCD and 1.44 Million dot EVF.

Sounds like a great little camera! The announcement could be made on Tuesday morning at around 5-6 am London time. Be sure to be online on SAR at that time to follow the announcement live!

The Korean site Dicahub posted a size comparison between the A3000 and other cameras:

Sony Austria lists the new NEX-5T, Zeiss 16-70mm and 18-105 G lens.

All the new Sony NEX stuff got leaked the recent days and now it’s even Sony itself leaking some info through their own websites. Sony Austria (Click here) lists the new 16-70mm f/4.0 OSS Zeiss lens, the new 18-105 G lens (page here) and the NEX-5T (page here). The new info we got here is that the Zeiss lens and the 5T will already ship in September. The G PZ zoom will ship in December only. What you don’t see on the Sony site is the price of the lenses. But the Zeiss should be around 1.000 Euro.

Thanks Winni for finding the links!

(SR5) More images of the A3000 and 16-70mm Zeiss lens!

 

Dyxum forum user DukeOfDucth (Click here) spotted the A3000 (or ILC3000) E-mount camera with the 16-70mm Zeiss lens! You can also read some specs on the card (20 megapixel and ISO 16,000). Have to say the DSLR shaped E-mount camera looks great!

Thanks Tyler for sharing the link!

(SR5) First image of the new ILC-3000 (A3000 in Japan). 230K LCD and 1,44 Million dot EVF.

And this is the first image of the Alpha 3000. As I told you before it has a new 20 Megapixel sensor and a 230k LCD. Price for the body will be around 300 Pounds (converted this could be more or less $300 or 350 Euro).

UPDATE: My source made a mistake when writing the camera specs. The 230K resolution refers to the LCD screen and not to the EVF. The VEF should have a 1,44 Million dot EVF. This looks like a very nice camera after all!

(SR5) More images of the new NEX-5T

Here are two new images of the NEX-5T. As you see there isn’t much difference with the Sony NEX-5R. It also shares the same sensor. Unlike the 5R the 5T has It has NFC, FN-button control like on SLT cameras, new Menu Interface and a couple of more things.

Now all that’s left to leak is the ILC-3000 cheap entry-level E-mount camera. I think we will see it soon…
