(SR3) Three APS-C and two FF A-mount mirrorless cameras to come in 2014.

A source sent me the new Sony roadmap and it looks like five new A-mount cameras will hit the stores in 2014. I still don’t know yet if some of these cameras will be already announced this year (for preorders only). Anyway, according to my source there will be three APS-C A-mount cameras and two new FF A-mount cameras. The specs of the A79 can be read on yesterday’s post. The three APS-C cameras should be the A59, A69 and A79. I don’t know yet the names of the two new FF cameras.

I have been told all five cameras are a major leap forward in terms of tech advancements. Everything is hugely improved. let’s hope that what sounds good on paper is also good in reality :)

I am also working on the new NEX-FF and NEX-APS-C roadmap. NEX-5T will definitely come and so the DSLR shaped NEX. I am almost sure the NEX-FF will also arrive this year and maybe the NEX-7 successor too.

(SR3) Specs of the new A79 prototype camera!

Amazon (Click here) extended the SLT rebate auction until supplies last. Which means that they are clearing the stocks before the new A-mount camera generation will be announced. And finally we got some specs about one of the new cameras:

What you will read here are the data from a A79 prototype camera. I have been told that at this stage almost 90% of the specs should remain the same of the final production version. This is the A-mount mirrorless cameras that will be in Stock in early 2014 (don’t know when it will be announced). Here are the specs:

– 32mpix exmor hd chip (new generation)
– 4 gb buffer
– full mirrorless focus, 480 focus points
– evf 4mpix
– 8-14 fps/sec
– Magnesium body
– There will be a new vertical grip too (compatible also with current SLT cameras).
I have been told that also the look changed a tiny bit and it somehow reminds of the old Minolta 700si (you can find them here on eBay).

.

The 480 focus points are possible because of a new on sensor phase detection technology. I have been told it’s very fast and reliable. Simething that on paper should put into the shadow the new Canon 70D dual hybrid AF performance.

So how does this sound for you?

The i1 smartphone also features a new JPEG engine. This one could be used by future Sony E-A mount cameras too!

(SR5) More info about the “bodyless” Lens-camera. And a good NEX-FF news.

As I told you end of last week Sony will soon release a revolutionary bodyless Lens camera. It’s basically a lens with integrated sensor and built-in WiFi and NFC. This will allow you to control the “Lens-Camera” via any mobile device. We got some more bits on the camera. There will be two of them:

1) One is the already mentioned “Lens-camera” with RX100MII sensor and  Zeiss lens.
2) The second model will feature a 10xzoom lens with 1/2,3 inch 18 megapixel CMOS sensor.

And I have good news for the E-mount folks. One of the trusted sources that shared info on this Lens-Camera confirmed that Sony is ready to launch the NEX-FF. I will post some specs and lens info soon. Stay tuned on SAR. Massive Sony rumors and news coming the next weeks!
