(SR4) Sony “almost ready” to launch a new 50 Megapixel camera Image quality outperforms the Canon 5ds?

FacebookShare

We got rumors about two new Sony Full Frame cameras. The A7rII is rumored to come very soon while the second 50MP camera release timing is yet unclear:

1) The Sony A7rII Full Frame E-mount camera (with the same A7II 5 axis stabilization and improved autofocusing). Shipment in May-June. I am yet not sure about the sensor but so far I “believe” it uses the same or tweaked version of the current 36MP sensor. But that’s just my “feeling” and not a “rumor” coming from sources.

2)
The official Canon 5Ds competitor! A new 50 Megapixel Sony camera using a new Sony sensor (not the Canon 5ds sensor). It is yet unclear if the new 50MP camera is the long time rumored A9 PRO E-mount camera or the new A-mount camera flagship. I actually hope Sony is thinking to release both at the same time…but that’s again just a wish of mine and not a rumor.

The A7rII is rumored to come in a special April (or at last May) announcement. The second 50MP cam release date is yet unconfirmed. For now sources could nor confirm or deny if there will be also some RX and APS-C E-mount camera announcement. I can add that almost certainly we will have new 4K camcorders. More about that soon on SAR.

Some behind the scene rumors: The new Sony 50MP camera is said to “easily OUTPERFORM” the Canon 5ds camera in terms of image quality at low ISO.

Great Stop Motion Trip Video by Ofer Rozenman.

FacebookShare

unnamed

Ofer Rozeman sent me this video of his New stop-motion-road-trip-video which is gone viral on Youtube. He told me:

Last September my wife and I traveled with our friends to Eastern Europe. As designated shooter I’ve tried capturing the 3000km road trip with this stop motion video made of 200GB and 8000 stills.
The idea of a stop-motion travel video came up when I wanted that by the end of my trip I’ll have a high quality video + a stills album, without having to decide what to shoot next while I’m on-scene. I also took into consideration the fact that the RX1s video quality wasn’t that good. Eventually I came into conclusion that shooting a stop-motion has lots of advantages: smooth camera movement, 6K resolution, super-accurate AF, All of those with zero budget (except for the RX1 of course).

I chose the RX1 because of its excellent image quality and compact size – ideal for traveling. It is also very convenient for street photography: the silent shutter and 35mm lens make the objects act natural while being photographed.

Here is the video:

(SR4) Sony A7r successor is coming very soon (already in production)

FacebookShare

At last the wait is over! One trusted sources confirmed Sony will announce the new Sony A7r successor (let’s call it A7rII for now). I have been told it’s already in production with possible shipment scheduled for May-June. The A7rII will also feature the exactly the same 5 axis stabilization of the Sony A7II. This is not the PRO E-mount model I “rumored” months ago. That PRO model is coming but I still don’t know when.

One more SR5 thing: There is also some “More stuff” coming. I hope I can get some reliable specs on the A7rII and also on the “More stuff” soon :)
