The Xjrumo leaked video specs are not from the A99 (but maybe from another camcorder!).

Short update about the video specs leaked by the Chinese website Xjrumo (Translation here) . My sources told me it’s 100% sure that these are not the specs of the A99. But there is a surprise…these specs are pretty damn close to another “camcorder model”. That sounds good too :)

Amazon deal on current NEX (if you don’t want to wait for the new ones)

So, we saw the new NEX-5R and NEX-6 cameras and the E-mount FF cameras will arrive in 2013 only. So if you still want a NEX camera now and don’t have time to wait for the NEX-5R and NEX-6 than you may take the chance to grab the latest $100 bundle offer on Amazon (Click here).

The only bad news is that the Zeiss 24mm for NEX is still not avialable and you can get it only by buying a huge $400 extra via third party resellers on Amazon (Click here).

HOT! Sony NEX-5R and NEX-6 images leaked!!!

And here we have the first real images of the new NEX-5R and NEX-6 cameras. Click on the pictures to see the full size version! These are pictures found by the nice guys from As a reminder. Sony may announce the new cameras and lenses on August 28th. This is the list I got from reliable sources:

NEX-5R: Looks almost exactly like the NEX-5n and has the flip screen from the NEX-F3. It has a completely newly designed 16 Megapixel APS-C sensor with Phase Detection AF pixels. It has WiFi connectivity and APP support. You can surf on Internet with it. Price around $700 with kit lens.
NEX-6: It’s a mini NEX-7 with integrated viewfinder. Compared to the NEX’7 it has an EVF with less resolution and same newly designed 16 Megapixel APS-C sensor. It has WiFi connectivity and APP support. Price between the NEX-5R and NEX-7 (NEX-7 is currently priced at $1200 at Amazon so my guess is around $950 and $1000).
Sony 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6: It is a pancake zoom with OSS and power zoom.
Sony 11-18 f/4.0: Normal (non pancake) zoom.
Sony 35mm f/1.8: Fast non expensive prime lens as big as the Sigma 30mm lens.

Stay tuned on SAR!!! Don’t miss the next big Sony news and follow SARs RSS feed or follow me on Twitter and join the super friendly Facebook comunity!

P.S.: In moment like this I am happy to see again that my rumors were correct :)
