NIkon will also use the upcoming new A99 24 Megapixel FF sensor?

The exploding Nikon D800 camera with 36 Megapixel Sony manufactured sensor.

For almost a year now I am sharing with you bits of rumors about the next A99 24 megapixel SLT Full Frame camera. Now Nikonrumors reports that also Nikon will use the same sensor (of course sold a “Nikon designed”) for the next D600 FF camera. I have some doubts the rumors is true also because it’s said that the Nikon D600 will cost $1500 only! Or wait, let’s hope this is true and that Sony has to sell the A99 for $1200 in order to compete against Nikon :)

Or, maybe Nikon will help Sony for free by creating another exploding Full Frame camera! Yes, the Nikon D800 explodes as it is reported here at CanonWatch :) And also maybe because of that it’s no more on top of the Amazon ranking (Click here to see).

P.S.: Nikon claims the 24 Megapixel APS-C sensor used for the Nikon D3200 (here at Amazon) is different from the Sony A77 sensor. But I don’t believe in coincidences :)

(SR5) First picture of the NEX-F3!

This is the first leaked picture of the Sony NEX-F3! As you can see it has the same NEX-C3 16 megapixel sensor (with improved image quality due the new BIONZ processor) and it has a new built-in flash and the 180 degree tiltable LCD screen like the Samsung MV800. It will replace the current NEX-C3. Some NEX-C3 kits have been already marked as discontinued at BHphoto (Click here), Digitalrev (Click here) and very low in Stock at Amazon (Click here).

As I told you before it will be announced in mid May along the new A37 and two other new A and E mount zoom lenses!

(SR5) A37 and NEX-F3 with same 16 Megapixel sensor (and improved image quality).

Image of the current Sony A35

Maybe it’s just me but I am no big fan of the Megapixel race. So it’s good to hear from another of my trusted sources that Sony will use a 16 Megapixel sensor within the upcoming new A37 and NEX-F3. It is the same sensor of the current A35 and NEX-C3 but I have been told that there is anew BIONZ processor that improves the image quality. Let’s hope it’s true! That said the A37 will have a similar A35 design and same price of the current model. The NEX-F3 will be completely new and “innovative“.

Two more NEX-FS700 videos!

I think Sony did a great work by releasing the new NEX-FS700. It is getting a lot of positive response on the web and from film makers (I am a film maker!). The video on top is made by Sony with the Sony NEX-FS700. And there is one more video at Studiodaily (Click here). While the camera is great what we are missing are dedicated video lenses with powerzoom, smooth aperture rings and so on. As long as these are missing it will be hard to jump on the E-mount camera :(

All I can say via my sources is that Sony knows that and that they are working on it :)

UPDATE: NEX-FS700 hands-on at Photographybay (Click here).
