(SR5) First image leak of the new Sony 4K actioncamera.

Bildschirmfoto 2015-01-05 um 13.22.02

Dvinfo found images of the new Sony stuff. This is the first image of the Sony 4K Actioncamera. The $500 X100V is a 4K actioncamera with image stabilization which will be in Store by February. It costs $100 more than the GoPRO4 but unlike the GoPro the Sony comes with on lens stabilization. Keep in mind that the GoPRO Hero4 is the most sold overall(!) camera at Amazon US (ranking here). Let’s see if Sony can succeed to dethrone that hotseller!

There is also a new AX33 4K camcorder that will go on sale for $1,100 AX33 in February.

No E or E-mount stuff will be announced today. But we will not have to wait a long time. Only 4 weeks until the next Sony press announcement before CP+ ;)

Thanks Cliff!

I got my hands on a list of products that Sony will announce today in Las Vegas (5pm Las Vegas time):

1) HDR-AS200V: Successor of the current Sony HDR-AS100V POV Action Cam. This is rumored to have 4K recording (Source: ActionCameraRumors).

2) Three (all 4K!) camcorders: FDR-X1000V, FDR-AXP35 and FDR-AX30

So far no new A and E-mount stuff (as expected).

(SR4) A different rumor: 4K ActionCams coming to CES.

Bildschirmfoto 2015-01-04 um 10.29.24

So far trusted sources told me no photo camera (A or E-mount) should come at CES. The big focus will be at CP+. But I got multiple reports that Sony will announce new camcorders and also something else:

“4K ActionCams coming to CES. Very sure of this.  I saw the content go up in the booth…”

You may think this is not an interesting news but did you know the most sold cameras worldwide are not DSLR, not mirrorless, not compacts…but actioncameras? Just check the Amazon digital camera sales ranking (Click here). This will be a big news for Sony. The rumor also got confirmed via ActionCameraRumors.

And Sony launched also a countdown for the live streaming that you can follow on Ustream or directly here on SAR (I will embed the video). The event starts at 5pm Las Vegas time (January 5th). This is…

8pm New York time
01.00 London time (January 6)
02:00 Berlin time (January 6)
10:00 Tokyo time (January 6)

And do not forget that there will be a big A and E-mount announcement in just one month right before the CP+ show that starts on February 12th. Stay tuned!

Zeiss says new Loxia wide and tele primes will come by end 2015!

Zeiss Loxia Lenses — BandPro 2014 from Clint Milby on Vimeo.

Hdslrshooter interviewed the Zeiss US manager and he spilled out some info about the future Loxia lenses (just watch the full video on top). He said a wide and a tele prime lens are very likely to come. And he “believes” those lenses will be on market by end 2015. We don’t know yet if those lenses will be “based” on the ZM line just like it happened with the other two Planar 50mm and Biogon 35mm primes. But let’s take a look at the ZM lens range:

Wide primes:
Distagon T* 2,8/15 ZM (Click here to see images on eBay).
Distagon T* 4/18 ZM (Click here to see images on eBay).
Biogon T* 2,8/21 ZM (Click here to see images on eBay).
C Biogon T* 4,5/21 ZM (Click here to see images on eBay).
Biogon T* 2,8/25 ZM (Click here to see images on eBay).
Biogon T* 2,8/28 ZM (Click here to see images on eBay).

Tele primes:
Sonnar T* 2/85 ZM (Click here to see price on eBay).
Tele-Tessar T* 4/85 ZM (Click here to see price on eBay).

I would really like to see the 21mm f/2.8 and the 85mm f/2.0 :) And you?
