Two Sony sensors compared (on Nikon)

Share

The Sony 36 megapixel sensor used by the Nikon D800 (and D800E).

Peter from Nikonrumors compared the Nikon D600 (with Sony 24MP sensor) and the Nikon D800E (with Sony 36MP) sensor. I thought it would be interesting to link to it because we may have a high end FF model from Sony which sues the same 36MP sensor. TO be honest I don’t see that much difference in noise and resolution between the two cameras. Of course we have tot ake into the account thet the image form the D800E has been downsampled but I would have expected to see more detail on that crop…

P.S.: Sensorgen posted the D800 data.

Sony changes the RX1 specifications (AF-C gone, 1:4000 shutter coming)

Sony Japan just announced some changes on the newly announced RX1 FF camera. As you see from the image on top the AF-C Auto Focus option has been removed. The second change is that the Shutter Speed Priority now goes as fast as 1:4000 (before it was 1:2000).

One more news. I updated the full rpeorder option list fo the new RX1 and other Sony cameras on Alphacameradeals (including more Sonystore, BHphoto and Europe links). The RX1 for example can be preordered at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, and in Europe at Sonystore DE-UK-FR-IT-ES-NL-SE-FI-CH, Wex UK, Wex Germany.

Vote the cameras that Sony should release for 2013!

A week ago I asked SAR readers to send me a list of camera suggestions. I simplified your very long wishlist in a few type of cameras to realize that poll. Please be aware that we are not going to talk about the details of the single camera yet (like price, features and so on). For now the only goal is to understand what type of camera you would need from Sony. Please be honest. Vote the camera you would really buy knowing that some of the options will be very pricey! Thanks!

Select the kind of future Sony camera you would consider to buy (you can select mroe of them):

Ask your friends to participate the poll! More votes we have more Sony will listen….hopefully!

Note: because you can select more than one camera the sum of the percentage will be over 100%. A percentage of lets’ say 43% close to one of the options means that 43% of all single voters that participated selected that specific option.
