(SR3) Some more “extended” A6100 specs. And a full rumor recap.

Share

Yesterday two anonymous sources sent me two different A6100 specs. I got two updates to report: The first source who said the A6100 has no 4K is plain wrong. And a third new source shared some more specs tonight. But also in that case I am really sceptic about the specs validity:

32mp BSI
5-axis IBIS
Much better ISO
4K
285 PDAF points
New EVF (larger T* viewfinder 0.75x)
14.5fps
Smaller than A6000, less weight too
No weather sealing
Mic-input
Only comes in black

Still, this info is coming from a new source so take it with a grain of salt. All I know from trusted sources is that a new A6xxx is definitely coming in September or early October at max.

Full September 11 announcement rumor recap:

SR5 (two trusted source confirmed this): New Sony PXW-FS5 E-mount camcorder. S35 sensors. 4K internally, but 8 bit XAVC-L (note the L) 100 Mbit max. No HFR as far as I can tell, 30fps max in 4K. Looks like a baby FS7. Price will be between old FS700 and current FS7, likely $5,000-6,500 USD. Differentiation on FS7 is much better CODEC, higher frame rates (incl 60p 4K), option for RAW and ProRes, bigger build.
SR4 (one trusted source heard this): Sony will announce 7 new lenses (some in development and some for real). Among them we have new FE telephoto lens(es), fast portrait prime, 24-70mm GM and maybe some “Updated” A-mount lenses.
SR4 (two trusted source heard about this): A60000 successor to be announced between now and PhotoPlus. Note: The rumor is not SR5 because it happened once that Sony delayed the announcement of that camera. Don’t want to bring bad luck again :)
SR3 (one anonymous source): New A6000 successor to be announced on September 11.

Tomorrow (September 11) Sony will have a press announcement at 9am Berlin time. You can follow the live videostream here on SAR!

Zeiss explains why Milvus lenses are ideal for use on Sony E-mount cameras.

Share

milvussony

Photographyblog posted the Zeiss slideshow of the official Zeiss Milvus presentation. And made it clear why those lenses are made for Sony E-mount owners too:
– The lenses are manual focus anyway. So by using an adapter you don’t lose anything.
– Smooth precise manual focusing system ideal to use with Sony focus peaking.
– All lenses of the range are color matched. Ideal for video post processing.
– 4K ready (high-resolution power edge to edge) and HDR ready (excellent ghost and flare resistance)
– No need of in camera lens correction. The lenses are already top of the notch.

Sounds like this could be a ncie lens for Sony A7s and Sony A7rII photographer and filmmakers!

Zeiss announces the new Milvus lens (4k optimized) line for Canon/Nikon DSLR. Preorder at BH!

Share

Bildschirmfoto 2015-09-10 um 15.59.57

Zeiss just announced a sort of Loxia lens line for Canon/Nikon DSLR. The lens line is called “Milvus”. There is no plan to make those for A-mount but of course you can use those lenses adapted on any E-mount camera. And Zeiss stressed to say that these lenses are made with 4K in mind (it means smooth and noiseless aperture and focus ring). A7s and A7rII owners may be interested in those!
