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

Share

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 :)

(SR4) Two new Full Frame Sony cameras coming soon!

Small updated about the new big Sony announcement rumor I posted yesterday: I am now 90% sure Sony will very soon announce (at last) two new Full Frame cameras. Definitely one E-mount, not sure yet if the second cam is A-mount or E-mount….fingers crossed and stay tuned on SAR!
Reminder: There is on Sony announcement before the NAB show in early April and one in May. Expect the two new cameras to be announced at one or both these events.

A small tidbit: One of my trusted sources told me these cameras will come with a “soft announcement”. It means almost no reviewer or press will get the camera before the announcement and the little info shared will come directly via Sony Japan. Just like it happened with the Sony A7II.

Right now I am writing my next SR4 rumors. In the meantime help me out to break the 10,000 Twitter followers barrier. Don’t know what will happen once I reach the magic number…Sony will call me and unveil the A9 specs? :) Twitter: https://twitter.com/SonyAlphaRumors

P.S.: A couple of notes:
1) I removed a lot of advertising and will remove some further. I also cleaned the code a bit. Website should load faster. A more serious cleaning is due to happen in 1-2 months. I promise site will be less cluttered by then!
2) I am working to remove all trolls which as usual comment as anonymous guests. Hope comment system will be more enjoyable to follow.
3) Join SonyAlphaForum for more “deep” discussions on Sony cameras and lenses. I am very “active” there if you want to follow me :)

(SR4) Major Sony E-mount camera announcement in May!


Patent of the entry level Sony A5 FF camera.

I know the last 6-7 months have been a bit slow on the rumor front but the main reason was that Sony had “only” one camera announced (The A7II). Sony slowed down the mad product release cycle they had the previous years. But now the time has come again to bring some real big and highly trusted rumor!

In May Sony will announce new E-mount cameras. I am now working with all sources to grab info about those. If all works fine I can at last share some SR4 or even SR5 rumors soon. So far I can tell you I got E-mount camera rumors only but I have high hopes Sony will bring a new FF A-mount camera this year too. I am just not sure that cam is coming in May.

One more thing:
There is also a Sony product announcement on April 12. But I believe there is “only” camcorder (maybe E-mount camcorders) coming.

Stay tuned on SAR. Let’s the comment speculation party begin ;)
