Indonesian agency leaks possible Sony Full Frame E-mount camera?


The Indonesian agency Postel registered the name of a new Sony interchangeable camera having the code “WW024382“. Last time I saw that kind of code the A7s had been announced the 3-4 weeks after. As you see on the screenshot APS-C E-mount cameras are registered with their real name (ILCE-5100 which is also going to be announced soon). I have no reliable info yet about a new FE camera so don’t get too excited for now. Anyway, I hope this will be Sony’s high-end A9 :)

Newly published Sony patents explains how Sony wants to get rid of the Rolling Shutter issue.


The complex sensor design you see on top is part of a newly published Sony patent (http://www.google.com/patents/US20140160334). Sony plans to fix the rolling shutter problem by introducing a new sensor technology which can read entire lines of pixels in batches of 4 simultaneously.
There are also more benefits coming along this tech: Noise is reduced and dynamic range increased.

Here a video from  the rolling shutter problem on the A7s:

New Sony A7s test roundup!


Good news! Super 35mm mode on Sony A7S dramatically reduces rolling shutter

Techradar posted the full A7s review and writes:

Well, it’s an excellent camera, but still it’s one that has limited appeal. The average enthusiast is usually less concerned about low light performance and high sensitivity settings than pros who have to shoot in gloomy conditions. A professional wedding photographer, for example, might like it for its low light capability when shooting in churches and candle-lit receptions, but they are also likely to carry an A7 to enable them to take larger images (and therefore sell more expensive large prints) when shooting outdoors.
