I can now confirm via trusted sources that Sony will announce a new camera TODAY at 4pm London time (17:00 in Berlin and 11am in NYC):

If (I repeat “if”) previous rumor are correct this might be the first real Sony PRO camera (around 20MP, 20fps, dual SD card slot, touchscreen, joystick control, superb AF, no operation lag, unlimited RAW recording…) and/or a new RX camera or soemthing completely unexpected.

An anoymous source said:

This new camera according to my source will bring Sony to the Pro table and challenge both Canon and Nikon. It is very fast and what pro sports photographers have been waiting for.

Press: Sony celebrates triple success at 2017 TIPA Awards

Press text:

The highly renowned Technical Image Press Association has recognised Sony’s innovation and performance in the digital imaging industry with three TIPA awards.

BEST DSLR PROFESSIONAL: α99 II (Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay).

The α99 Mark II has a 42.4MP Exmor R CMOS sensor inside its magnesium alloy body and an enhanced buffer that can handle up to 12 frames per second shooting with AF/AE tracking. ISO range is 100-25,600 expandable to 102,400. The hybrid phase-detection AF system combines a 79-point dedicated sensor with 399-point focal plane sensor, resulting in a 79 hybrid cross AF point array that delivers very impressive high-speed and high accuracy tracking focus. The α99 II records 4K video with full pixel readout (with no pixel binning) in the XAVC S format at 100 Mbps. It also incorporates 5-axis image stabilisation (a 4.5 stop advantage).

BEST EXPERT COMPACT CAMERA: DSC-RX100V (Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay).

The RX100 V has a 20MP 1-inch Exmor RS CMOS sensor and a high resolution OLED EVF as well as a 3.0 inch TFT LCD, all within a camera that fits easily in the pocket. ISO sensitivity ranges from 125 to 12,800 and to 25,600 by overlay burst shooting. Fast Hybrid AF combines 315 focal plane phase detection points with contrast detection AF to yield a very fast AF acquisition speed of 0.05 seconds. Continuous 24fps shooting, with AF/AE tracking, is made possible by the new font end LSI. The (equivalent) 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* zoom lens can focus as close as 0.17 ft (5cm) at the wide focal length setting. The camera offers numerous video modes and frames, including 4K, as well as built-in SteadyShot™ image stabilisation.

BEST ACTIONCAM: FDR-X3000R (Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay).

The 4K-capable FDR-X3000R is built around an 8.2MP Exmor R CMOS sensor and features a ZEISS®Tessar f/2.8 lens with wide angle. The compact unit has a unique Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilisation system that works even in 4K and high speed recording modes. The FDR-X3000R offers built-in Wi-Fi, with a new version of Live-View Remote control, GPS and a stereo microphone, plus a stereo mini jack. Numerous shooting effects include time-lapse capture, high-speed motion, and 120 fps shooting rate. As is, the camera is splash proof, but a housing is available to shoot at depths of up to 60 metres (197 ft).

Note: I certainly do hope this wasn’t the announcement rumored to happen today…

Like I told you yesterday on April 23 at 3pm Las Vegas time we will be able to watch the live stream of the Sony NAB show press event.

But some rumors I got the last 24hours said it may be possible that Sony will already announce “something” today at around 3-4pm London time. But please note that these are not coming through our trusted sources so don’t hold me accountable on that yet. I hope to be able to confirm or deny this soon.

Note: I don’t know yet if the Sony Stolen Truck will have any influence and possibly delay some of the planned product announcements…
