(SR5) First picture of the Fulll Frame E-mount VG-900!

Share

This is the first image of the first E-mount Full Frame camera! It’s actually a camcorder to be correct, the new VG-900. Click on the picture to view the full size version. It finally proves that a FF sensor indeed fits into an E-mount. And I was considered as a crazy guy when I told you this was coming… :)
Like the A99 and RX1 the camera uses a new 24 Megapixel sensor. Records video in AVCHD 2.0. Price around $3300 with new Full Frame A-mount adpater included!

P.S.: What if Sony would do some math and resolve the following equation: VG900+RX1= X    -> end of the Leica M series? :)

Many of you would have loved to see this :)


An imaginary RX1 interchangeable camera created by EOS20 (via Redbubble).

I know I shocked you by posting this is FAKE(!) rendering! But in yesterdays RX1 poll only 15% of the readers said they would buy the fixed lens RX1. So my question to you now is. Would you have bought the RX1 with 35mm f/2.0 Zeiss lens if it would have an interchangeable lens mount?

Would you buy a NEX alike RX1 camera with interchangeable E-mount?

And now two link to people I do highly respect. They wrote their thoughts about the RX1:

Kai Wong writes on Digitalrev: “This could quite possible change the world of digital cameras. This is huuuuge. It only takes one company to push the ball over the hill for it to become a huge hit. This could potentially lure some of the bigger companies into doing something similar. This could be mirrorless/compact camera 2.0. This could be the first Sony digital camera I ever buy.

David Kilpatrick writes on Photoclubalpha: “I think, perhaps, that after a long time of ignoring photographers Sony finally listened. They may have listened to the wrong ones. The lens enthusiasts of dPreview represent a tiny minority. Those who will spend nearly $3k on a fixed lens compact – even with full frame – are even fewer.

What do you think?

Short roundup before the storm: New VG30 pic, new K-5II with Sony sensor and Hasselblad-Sony partnership?

 

I have to catch up with some news before to keep talking about the big A99, RX1 VG900 and NEX-6 cameras that are going to be announced tomorrow! So here are three interesting news:

1) We have some new VG-30 pics you can see her eon top. Click on the pictures on top to see the full size version.

2) Pentax announced the new K-5II with 16,3 Sony Exmor sensor without AA filter (Specs and price here at BH).

3) Hasselblad will announce a mirrorless camera with a larger than Full Frame sensor. And it is rumored that the sensor is made by Sony! The camera will be similar to current Hasselblad Xpan cameras (they are here on eBay). I certainly hope that’s a true rumor! More info at MirrorlessRumors.

4) Sony A57 review at Photographic-central.

 

Important: Announcement tomorrow (Wednesday) at 4-5 int he morning London time. And as I told you yesterday I just noticed that I gave you the wrong links to our social network. Here are the correct links to the RSS feed (Click here) and Twitter (Click here) stream and the Facebook fan page (Click here). By joining us you will not miss any rumor about the future NEX-9, A1 and other cameras to come the months after Photokina :)

The real big achievement of the RX1…it is the smallest digital FF camera ever made!

Our super nice readers OG, Ben and Richard sent me some very useful size comparison images. On top you see the comparison with other FF cameras like the Leica M9 ($6500 camera!) and the Canon 5DmarkII ($3400). The RX1 is incredibly small and has the same size of the already tiny Panasonic GX1 (here on Amazon) that uses a much smaller Micro Four Thirds sensor (Click on the image below):

.

And if you compare it with a Nikon D700 with 35mm f/2.0 lens than you get this (again click on pic!):

From an engineering point of view this is an amazing piece of technology. I hope Sony is reading the SonyAlphaRumors readers comments and make an interchangeable lens version of the RX1. Our readers already have their hands on the credit card for this :)
