(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.

(SR5) 11-18mm for NEX is not a pancake. NEX-5R and NEX-6 both with APP support and Phase detection AF.

Short update about NEX lenses: It’s confirmed that the 16-50mm lens is a pancake but I just learned that the 11-18mm is not!

Short update about NEX cameras: Both, the NEX-5R and NEX-6 use exactly the same new sensor with Phase Detection Pixels and both have Application support.

Sony NEX-F3 gets tested by Dpreview!

Short message to invite you to read the latest DPreview test of the NEX-F3. It earns a well deserved “Silver Award”: “It has great photo quality, a complete set of features, and snappy performance. The only thing I’d recommend is trying one out in person before you buy, as the user interface leaves much to be desired.

NEX-F3 price check at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
