FAKE rumor busted: 59MP image from Sakamoto has been shot on the A7II and upsized to 59MP.

Plenty of rumor sites just posted a link to that image on Flickr from Sakamoto Mayu. They claim this could be another A7rII image. As you know EXIF and TXT data can easily be faked. But somewhat fakers forget that there are other parameters in EXIF file and they forget to change them ;)

The EXIF file from Sakamto Mayu shows the following small detail:

That’s the focal resolution of the current A7II !!! Just try to read your A7II Exif info and you will see the focal plane resolution matches.

And the A7r resolution would be
Focal Plane X Resolution        : 2049.067291
Focal Plane Y Resolution        : 2049.067291

So this is a upsized image guys :)

Unlike the Sakamotu image the Zeiss image has no such focal plane resolution image. So that is still somewhat strange (a part of the fact that’s weird Zeiss uploaded a 59MP image). So this doesn’t yet mean there is no 59MP cameras. It just means plenty of guys are taking “inspiration” from the Zeiss image to have some fun :)

Just to be 100% clear about the A7rII: There is yet no single proof (or at least SR5 rumor from trusted sources) saying the new A7x camera coming soon has 50+ Megapixel! All SonyAlphaRumors can tell you with a 90% reliability is that there will be a new A7 camera series announced soon! And as far as I heard from one of my good sources this should be the A7rII.

New Sony X teaser for a product display event on May 15!

The broken mirror teaser

The Sony X Australia group posted that curious teaser of a broken mirror. It’s for a special Sony event scheduled on May 15 (date info shared by a source). There is yet no other info a part of the text saying “stay tuned”. The broken mirror image could refer to a new mirrorless camera launch (rumored to be the A7rII and/or the A6100). But so far there is no 100% guarantee yet this is for the A7rII/A6100 launch. Note: Sony X is an official Sony affiliated group.

But this would fit with previous (SR3) rumors I got about a mid-May announcement. The new A7x and A6xxx camera May-June launch timeframe also got leaked on that Wikileaks document.

So far the A7rII will get the 5 axis IBIS and A7II body form. Not 100% clear if the A7rII will get the same 36MP sensor as the first model or an updated new 59MP sensor (See Zeiss leak). The A6100 will retain the current 24MP sensor and get XAVC-S recording.

Reminder:
Sony FE 28mm for the first time in Stock today at Amazon, Adorama, BHphotoFocusCamera, Sony US.

(SR3) New rumors about the A7rII having 50+MP sensor…

The reflection in the eye of the Zeiss 56MP image may show the photographer holding the new A7rII :)

The following rumor comes from a new source. As with any new source please take the info with a grain of salt and not read too much into it yet:

Sorry to be anonymous, but i think the rumors of the 50mp A7R II are true. we exhibit at NAB, and are good friends with a lot of the vendors including Zeiss, Sony, etc. We were told by one of our sources “three months for the A7R II 50MP sensor” and that was all they mentioned. Could be more stuff, but the guy who told me also works for a related manufacturer.

Thanks again for sharing the info Anonymous source!

So far the A7rII is rumored to be announced between mid May and early June. I have no 100% confirmed info yet but I believe (my speculation and not a rumor!) it will be the third or fourth week of May…

Sony to have a ” Pro Video Presentation” on May 29 in Berlin.

schau2015

Sony will have a “Pro Video Presentation” on May 29 in Berlin. That is what the text says on the official Schau! 2015 homepage. Don’t know what exactly that means but let’s hope this means an E-mount camera with internal 4K recording will be announced on that day :)

P.S.: Other companies like Panasonic and Fuji will show their new cameras (G7 and X-T10) on the same event.
