(SR2) Sony

Share

A dpreview user wrote following text: “I found that the Sony RAW file (ARW and SF2) Exif metadata includes a camera model code, stored as the Sony makernotes tag 0xb001. You can read this tag using applications like ExifTool or PhotoMe. The (decimal) codes are as follows:

2 = DSC-R1
256 = DSLR-A100
257 = DSLR-A900
258 = DSLR-A700
259 = DSLR-A200
260 = DSLR-A350
261 = DSLR-A300
???
263 = DSLR-A380
264 = DSLR-A330
265 = DSLR-A230
???
???
???
269 = DSLR-A850
???
???
[??? = DSLR-A500 Files not examined]
273 = DSLR-A550

The “holes” in the list suggest that six (or seven, depending on the unknown A500 code) additional cameras have at least reached the stage in which they get their own code.”

(SR4) UPDATED -> Sony will launch a new camera on November 18!

SonyAlphaRumors has got an important information from one of our most trusted sources. Sony is ready to launch a new camera on November 18! The camera will have the new (4/3 ?) exmor sensor and Full HD video recording. With the camera Sony wants to compete against the Panasonic GH1.

UPDATE: The only thing we know is that Sony will launch a direct GH1 competitor on mid November. This will be the first Sony camera with Video recording! We do not know if the camera will be the first model of a mirrorless system. We are working to get more infos!

UPDATE2: Most of the mystery is given by the “4/3” sign. We don’t know if it means that:
1) Sony will become a strong competitor of the Panasonic GH1 camera (which has a 4/3 sensor)
2) Sony will use a 4/3 sensor but with a proprietary mount
3) Sony will join the MicroFourThirds system

Option 1 is the more realistic answer.

Keep following us in the next days.

UPDATE: We downgraded the rumor from SR5 to SR4. We heard the source again and he still confirms the rumor. Anyway we thought we should only give SR5 value when we have a real proove (image or whatever).
