Image on top show the HDC2500

I have a non-Alpha rumor I want to share for those of you interested in pro video stuff. A source told me a new HDC camera will be announced soon:

The HDC4300 is a camera unit equipped with a 2/3-inch, 9.8 megapixel, 3-chip CMOS image sensor for super motion video camera systems.
In addition to standard HD and HD high frame rate imaging, it also supports 4K multi-format imaging.

And some more info via another source:

Replaces HDC-2500, shoots 4k up to 60fps & 1080p at 240fps. B4 mount 2/3in HD glass, future of 4k Sports OB

For A or E-mount followers: So fare I have yet no reliable info about a new 4K camera like a Sony A7sII or A-mount 4K cam coming at NAB.

New Sony A7rII is coming: What should be the improvements?

A7r

The Sony A7rII specs are kept secret in Sony Japan headquarters. And while I am trying to get through that secrecy wall let us all know what you hope to get with the new A7rII. That’s my personal improvement list:
– Silent shutter mode
– “uncompressed” RAW
– Phase detection AF
– Same grip and improved button layout of the A7II
– Same 5 axis stabilization as the A7II
– Improved battery life

And you?

(SR4) Sony “almost ready” to launch a new 50 Megapixel camera Image quality outperforms the Canon 5ds?

We got rumors about two new Sony Full Frame cameras. The A7rII is rumored to come very soon while the second 50MP camera release timing is yet unclear:

1) The Sony A7rII Full Frame E-mount camera (with the same A7II 5 axis stabilization and improved autofocusing). Shipment in May-June. I am yet not sure about the sensor but so far I “believe” it uses the same or tweaked version of the current 36MP sensor. But that’s just my “feeling” and not a “rumor” coming from sources.

2)
The official Canon 5Ds competitor! A new 50 Megapixel Sony camera using a new Sony sensor (not the Canon 5ds sensor). It is yet unclear if the new 50MP camera is the long time rumored A9 PRO E-mount camera or the new A-mount camera flagship. I actually hope Sony is thinking to release both at the same time…but that’s again just a wish of mine and not a rumor.

The A7rII is rumored to come in a special April (or at last May) announcement. The second 50MP cam release date is yet unconfirmed. For now sources could nor confirm or deny if there will be also some RX and APS-C E-mount camera announcement. I can add that almost certainly we will have new 4K camcorders. More about that soon on SAR.

Some behind the scene rumors: The new Sony 50MP camera is said to “easily OUTPERFORM” the Canon 5ds camera in terms of image quality at low ISO.

(SR4) Sony A7r successor is coming very soon (already in production)

At last the wait is over! One trusted sources confirmed Sony will announce the new Sony A7r successor (let’s call it A7rII for now). I have been told it’s already in production with possible shipment scheduled for May-June. The A7rII will also feature the exactly the same 5 axis stabilization of the Sony A7II. This is not the PRO E-mount model I “rumored” months ago. That PRO model is coming but I still don’t know when.

One more SR5 thing: There is also some “More stuff” coming. I hope I can get some reliable specs on the A7rII and also on the “More stuff” soon :)
