You have to watch this: “Playmemoriescameraapps” website for the NEX-5R (and upcoming NEX-6)

Share

The NEX-5R has been announced and the NEX-6 is coming next week. Booth have Application support and if you want to see how it works check out that well made site made by Sony: www.playmemoriescameraapps.com. Meantime NEX-5R preorders seem to be very low according to Amazon ranking (Click here). As yous ee there is no 5R within the top 100 while the $100 discount on the NEX-5N is selling well at Amazon (Click here) and BHphoto too (Click here).

And here comes the NEX-5R preorder link roundup including a reminder to my new still in very beta phase AlphaCameraDeals.com website:

USA:

Sony A99 AF points explained at Mobile01.

Picture of the A77 has been used by Mobile01 to show you where the A99 pixels are.

The taiwan site Mobile01 (Translation here) explained how the 102 AF point system of the A99 works. As you know the A99 has a Dual Phase Detection system. There us a 39 point AF sensor that uses the reflected light from the Translucent mirror. And there is a 9×7 pixel phase detection system on the sensor itself. It’s the same 9×7 system used on the Sony NEX-5R. That makes a total of 102 AF points and eleven of them are cross point.

P.S.: Full Sony NEX-5R preorder links at AlphaCameraDeals.
