(SR4) More confirmations about E-mount announcement around May 21.

FacebookShare

May 20-21-22 announcement:
I keep receiving more confirmations that there is a major E-mount camera announcement next week around May 20-21-22! I also got some more info about cameras I will publish soon after I get some confirmations from other sources…

Today Sony’s Australia event:
Sony Australia had a meeting today with journalists and photographers but their touch and try session has been made with the current camera/lenses . Like it happened with the A7II and the recent FE lens announcements it looks like Sony prefers to announce new products in “solo” without any special journalist/photographers meeting like other companies do. Anyway, there are only 5-6 days now we have to wait to see the new E-mount stuff!

Stay tune don SAR and join our newsletter to get the info the moment those new cameras get announced:

Niklas:I saw that you posted some videos and just wanted to share a video I shot entirely on the RX10 compact camera. t’s a great camera and I just wanted to prove that you don’t need an a7s to get a cinematic look. https://vimeo.com/98879187.

(SR3) Two new FE cameras coming?

FacebookShare

Back in March a trusted source told me two things:
1) The A7rII is already in production and will likely ship in June (article here).
2) Sony has also a second 50MP camera model in the works (article here).

And right now I just got that directly from another Sony “insider” anonymous source:

We heard from our rep yesterday that there would be two new ff cameras announced both a7rmkii and a8?! He seemed to think that the a7rii would be as the a7ii, just better erg and is. The a8 is apparently the high MP 50+ body.

First of all thanks to the anonymous source! And damn, let’s hope this one now becomes real just like the SR3 Batis lens rumor we posted in January :)

Some more Sony Australia info…

Sony Alpha – Mirrorless 60″ Commercial

I have been told that tomorrow Sony Australia meeting is a “sneak preview” of Sony products. It’s still unclear if Sony will announce a new camera within the next 24 hours. But if it’s not than we will definitely see them next week. UPDATE: One of the members said:

My feel is that its the RX100M4 and A6xx and not the A7Rii … although I might be wrong.

UPDATE_2: RX100m3 preorder page leads to a blank page now. Doens’t mean anything at all yet. So don’t read too much into it…for now.

Sony lately is known for playing a lot of cat and mouse game on the real announcement date. The new FE lenses example were shown at CP+ but pricing was announced 10 days later. That said it’s pretty clear what Sony want to launch in May-June: New A6100, A7rII and new RX cameras.

A tidbit: The commercial video you see above is running on Australian TV’s this week.
