What is the new NEX-7R “color sensor”?

New York fashion Photographer Clayton Nelson removed all the content where he was talking and showing image samples of the new NEX-7R. But there is one sentence that makes me think quite a bit. Many months ago I heard about completely new kind of Sony sensors. I still think these kind of new tech is due for late 2014 early 2015 only. But this is the sentence that I cannot understand:

“I emailed Sony some of the images I took earlier in the week, explaining how delighted I was with the camera, especially the color sensor.”

He didn’t say he liked the color rendition, he sai he liked the “color sensor” which makes me think he specifically wanted to highlight a new kind of sensor tech. Hope sources can enlighten me about that! (I personally still think he meant color rendition).

To all readers: Keep your eyes open! You should be able to find more and more breadcrumbs of rumors from now on. About NEX-7r, NEX-9, ILCE-7, RX10 and maybe more. it’s going to be a hell of a busy rumor time :)

(SR4) UPDATE: Are these the first image samples taken with the NEX-7r???

On Friday I told you how Sony could start leaking info on the new cameras. And this may be just the start:

New York fashion Photographer Clayton Nelson shared a couple of pictures he has taken “with the Sony NEX-7R, a new prototype APS sensor digital camera” (these are his own words). And he also writes:

“I emailed Sony some of the images I took earlier in the week, explaining how delighted I was with the camera, especially the color sensor.”

and

“These cameras are far beyond playthings. I believe that they can be utilized as substantial tools in an artistic format. They are certainly not toys…”

UPDATE: Clayton now removed the pics and text about the NEX-7r!

 

I really don’t think Clayton Nelsons is lying on the camera he is using. More likely he was allowed by Sony to create some “suspense”. Now imagine what Sony will do when they start to “leak” info on the NEX-FF!

(SR1-2) Xjrumo says NEX-7 successor coming too.

The Chinese rumor site Xjrumo claims to know via their sources that Sony will also announce the new NEX-7 successor in October. I cannot confirm or deny the rumors yet. And I don’t know how much we can trust this site yet.

Sony seems to be very focused on the NEX-FF launch. I really haven’t heard anything about a NEX-7n lately :(
