(SR4) What I heard about the A-mount future so far: Going Pro, slow release cycle, lenses.

Share

While E-mount news and rumors are pretty reliable and stable the A-mount future is quite more…unpredictable. The last couple of weeks I got in contact with as many as source as possible to try to gather some reliable info. And this is what I got:

1) A-mount is certain to continue.
2) Sony E-mount success caught Sony a bit “unprepared”. Therefore many A-mount product released have been “delayed” to focus resources and production on E-mount. This because that system needs to be broadened as soon as possible before the competition catches up. Editor’s note: This could be a reason why some of the rumored A-mount lenses planed for 2014 haven’t been released yet
3) Release cycle of A-mount products is getting longer.
4) New A-mount cameras will focus on a more high end market (likely no cheap entry level A-mount camera to come anymore?).

LIke I told you before the next VERY BIG(!) Sony announcement is scheduled for January-February 2015. But none of the sources could yet confirm this is for A-mount. I hope to get mroe about it soon. If you have some “rumor” to share just send me an anonymous messages here:

(SR3) XAVC-S recording coming to the A7-A7r with the next firmware update?

Recently the RX10 got a nice update which added XAVC-S recording. According to a video maker close to Sony also the A7 and A7r could get such an update soon. Would certainly be nice!

(SR4) Sony High (46?)Megapixel camera is coming for real in first quarter 2015!

The great Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8.

A trusted source shared a couple of interesting info. He knows for sure that the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 lens announced at Photokina has been designed for new High megapixel cameras. He says the lens has been tested to resolve enough detail on a Sony 46 Megapixel Full Frame camera. And that camera will be announced the first quarter of 2015! It’s yet not clear if this is an A or E (or both) mount camera.

The source who told me this shared correct info in the past therefore I rank the rumor with an SR4 level (80% chance this is correct). There is a hot rumor time coming by end of this year and very early 2015. To not miss any of the upcoming rumors subscribe here:

High Megapixel rumor war update (Canon coming soon?)

canon50mp

Sony’s close to 50 megapixel camera is likely to come in very early 2015. But before that Canon could launch their 50 Megapixel camera this week already! At least their teaser promises a lot. I am yet not into Canon rumors so I don’t know if the camera is really coming in these days already. Knowing Canon they could also make a big advertsising…for nothing really exciting. Anyway, if this is the High Megapixel camera I will be certainly happy. It will force Sony to price their new cameras in a competitive way.

(SR3) Rumor about a medium format Sony surfaces (again)

Image of a Mamiya 7 (here on eBay) from Roma Nikolaev.

Also Photorumors got word (reliable?) on a Sony medium format camera coming the coming 12 months. Nothing new as this rumor is floating on the web since months now (see article here). My sources once told me the Sony medium Format Camera is a sort of digital Mamiya 7 (here on eBay). But the camera should look better and be smaller. So here are the specs/details rumored so far:

– Fixed lens RX camera
– Zeiss prime (35mm FF equivalent)
– 50 megapixel sensors (same used by new Hasselblad/PhaseOne/Pentax medium formats)
– Built-in EVF
– Smaller and cheaper(!) than any other medium format cameras out there. It’s cheaper than the new Pentax 645

All we know from recent interviews is that Sony said such a camera “is possible” to make for Sony and they also stressed to say that they have unique innovative products to come in 2015. Let’s hope this one is one of them!
