a couple of hours to go…

Share

It’s 04:20 here in Berlin and it’s only 2-3 hours to go until the final Sony announcement. I am still not 100% sure if the announcement will be made at 5am in the morning London time. I expect many reviews, news and preorders to be posted at that time. I would be happy if you can help me to not miss any of these news. Send me the links at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com. There is such a lot of stuff that a full preorder list will be posted at Alphacameradeals. A shorter list will be available on SAR.

I am incredibly tired and will try to sleep a couple of hours before to get back to work on SAR. I really Thanks you all for the help and support you gave me in these weeks. I am sooo tired I am really looking forward to recover the days after Photokina!

See you soon!

P.S.: One particular thanks goes to the amazing facebook SAR comunity that helped me many times to find the leaks on Asian sites.

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

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?
