Reminder: Current E-mount (NEX) can be used with and FF sensor.


Image courtesy: Camerasize.

One question you have is if the current E-mount can be paired with a much larger Full Frame sensor. One of my sources answer was clearly…YES! A reminder: Sony manager Toru Kotsumotu (Source: and David Kilpatrick (Source: Photoclubalpha) said that a FF sensor within an E-mount is possible. And if you look at the image on top (Courtesy: Camerasize) you can see that the E-mount can indeed fit an FF sensor inside the camera. For comparison just look at the M9 mount :)

UDPATE: This is an image made by Alphacorner (Thanks!)

That said I am working on the full details from the new Sony NEX FF strategy. All I can say is that you don’t have to expect a sort of FF NEX-7 to be launched now. If the rumors I am getting are correct there will be a “different” kind of camera first…Stay tuned on SAR!

Something different. A close friend from our rumor websites started a small blog to tell her daily stories in Greece. If you are interested in these kind of stories check it out: (Good Luck!)

NEX-EA50 preorders at BHphoto (and catching up with some news)

The last Full Frame NEX rumor may overshadowed the NEX-EA50 release :) Time to give you some new link to the new camcorder:
1) Preorder, Price and Specs are now up at BHphoto (Click here). Expected availability is Ocotber 15th
2) Link to the full overview at Sony UK.
3) A first video with…le’ts be honest…terrible music is up on Youtube.

What I am still missing is the new 18-200mm Powerzoom price info. Did you find it? Would be nice to know if we NEX (3/5/7) owners can use and buy this lens for our NEX cameras.

(SR5) Sony NEX goes Full Frame!!!!


This is a very short but almost revolutionary rumor…

I just learned via (many) trusted sources that the third revolution from Sony is about to happen. After the SLT and NEX introductions (first two revolutions) Sony is about to change the photographic and video industry with the third revolution… a new Full Frame NEX system!

I am now working on the details of that “revolution”. If all works fine I will have some news to post about it within the next days. I want to be 99% sure about what I am going to post here….so dear sources send me all the info you can at or use the anonymous contact form on the right sidebar…Thanks!

As usual with rumors keep your expectations low and be aware that this is a rumor based on mysterious sources and NON-facts. Keep also in mind that I have been told this is just a “Start” (whatever it means). But this may be the first time I believe Sony could seriously compete against Nikon and Canon and Leica in the Full Frame world. Canon C300? Nikon D800? Leica M9? Hmmm, Sony may (very) slowly catch them all :)

Stay tuned on SAR! Working within all my free time on rumors now! Please write precise questions within the comment system so that sources can read and answer them. I know the first question will be…is it possible to have a Full Frame sensor on a NEX mount? :)

Thank you all, a very tired and overworked Andrea (SAR admin).

Are you interested in "buying into" a Full Frame NEX system?

Sony announces the new NEX-EA50! And a new Power Zoom too!!!!

Sony just released a new E-mount camcorder named NEX-EA50. It’s very similar to the NEX-FS100 but has a “more affordable price point than ever before” – about £2,700. The other very interetsing news is that for the first time Sony released an E-mount 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 OSS Power Zoom!!! It has continuous variable iris and Optical Steady Shot image stabilisation with Active Mode, which should give a more stable shot. lens is electronically controlled via either the zoom rocker lever on the camcorder grip or the top handle, offering either a constant zoom speed or smooth, slow zoom.

Features of the NEX-EA50:
– Exmor APS-C/Super35mm HD CMOS sensor is claimed to offer low noise and high sensitivity in low light conditions. It also enables 1080 progressive and interlace recording with 50/60Hz selection at 50p/25p/50i or 60p/30p/24p/60i. It records AVCHD 4:2:0 at up to 28Mbps.
– It will capture 16.1 megapixel still pictures with RAW format support.
– two-channel XLR audio (an ECM-XM1 Shotgun microphone is included with the NEX-EA50H); Linear PCM audio; time code; user bit; and built-in GPS.
– Sony’s HXR-FMU128 (128GB) flash memory unit can dock directly to the camcorder for simultaneous backup recording. The camcorder is also compatible with Sony’s new Mirroring Memory Stick (MS-PX64/32/16), the world’s first memory card with mirroring. This enables the card to deliver higher reliability and data security through a dual recording (mirroring) function. The PX Series cards will be available from September, in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions.
