(SR2) Wild rumor: H.265 coming to the A7s to allow internal 4K recording?

A7S

A visitor of the CES show shared me the following info:

Speaking to Sony rep at CES, he indicated H.265 may be coming to A7x platform. In theory, this could allow A7S to output 4K (H.265) to the SD card due to the lower bitrate possibility. Would eliminate the requirement for external HDMI recorder for 4K, as long as you are OK with the H.265 compression.

The Samsung NX1 uses the H.265 codec for 4K recording. But I really don’t know if Sony will do this. There may be overheating issue when recording 4K on the A7s. But if Sony would find a way to add internal 4K recording I would certainly be happy!

Let’s ask our readers:

Is it important for you to have internal 4K recording on the A7s?

(SR3) Sony A7000 first APS-C E-mount camera with on sensor stabilization

A year ago Sony Europe site showed that image of an E-mount APS-C camera with integrated on sensor stabilization. Sony quickly removed the image as it was a fault from their designer team. Well, that “mistake” will soon become a real thing if the rumor I got is correct: The new High End APS-C E-mount camera that will feature the 5 axis on sensor stabilization used by the A7II. I am yet not 100% sure the camera will be named A7000 but what matters is that the source said it’s placed above the current A6000.

Release date is yet not confirmed but we should get it in shop by mid 2015.

New Rokinon teaser for the new 135mm (A and E-mount) lens.

Rokinon/Samyang posted a new teaser for their new tele prime lens. You also see the blurred lens on the background. It’s likely to be a new 135mm f/1.8 (or f/1.4?) lens and knowing the company history we can expect to get an A and an E-mount version of that lens. Finally a “cheaper” version of our Zeiss 135mm f/1.8 lens!

The lens should be announced before the CP+ show that starts on February 12.

(SR2) First rumor about a super cheap FF E-mount camera. Costs 799 Euro with lens?

Low rated SR2 rumors should always taken with a grain of salt. They are sent to me by new anonymous sources and very often are not correct. But sometimes unlikely rumors happen to be true and the following rumor at least has some small real chance to become true. The source told me:

super cheap full frame beginner mirrorless is coming! 799 us for the kit.

Well, it may or may not be true but Sony really patented such a compact and cheaper FF camera design back in October 2013 (SAR article here). And a highly trusted source told me that Sony has such a prototype in their labs for real!

Those of you arguing that such a price is impossible well…the A7 sells for 1.050 Euro on eBay (Click here). Now imagine a more compact camera without EVF…799 is really not that impossible!

So let’s take the chance to let Sony know if SAR reader would like to get such a camera:

Would you consider to buy a super compact FF E-mount camera priced at 799 Euro with kit lens?
