Gdgt (Click here) already leaked the first picture of the upcoming new Sony A57! As you see it’s pretty much the same camera like the Sony A65. And as I told you before Redcoon Germany is also listing the new product. The camera will be announced on Tuesday 4am London time.
In short the specs are:
16 megapixel Exmor HD sensor
10 fps (12fps in tele zoom mode)
100 up to 16.000 ISO
1,44 million dots EVF
15 point AF with 3 cross sensors
AVCHD 2.0 60p/60i/24p recording
Next Tuesday Sony will announce the new A57 SLT camera with 16 Megapixels. And stores are already preparing the new preorder pages. So it comes that you can now find the void A57 listed at Redcoon Belgium, Redcoon Germany and Redcoon France.
A part of the new 16 megapixel sensor and the 1,44m dot viewfinder the A57 is pretty much the same camera like the A65. I will cover the A57 presentation here on SAR on Tuesday morning (6-7-8am London time). Stay tuned!
Our reader Haija sent us the screenshot you see here on top to confirm that after 154 days delay Amazon US is now shipping the first NEX-7 with 18-55mm kit lens. Right now only third party resellers at Amazon (Click here) are offering that kit (overpriced!).
And here we are again with the SLT versus DSLR discussion Techradar (Click here) had a talk with MR. Paul Genge from Sony UK. Paul once again confirmed that. “We made a clear statement during IFA, our president made a statement that we were going to be looking at full-frame as the next introduction for SLT“.
As you know Sony discontinued the production of the A580, A850 and A900 cameras and doesn’t list those cameras in their Sonystores anymore. Asked about this Paul said: “We have no SLRs in our line-up today, and our intention is to develop the SLT technology and make that a real stand-out in the market.”
I guess this puts an end on all DSLR hopes. SLT is the future! But if you ask me , the only real long term future is NEX and other future FF mirrorless systems. I think that will be the future of Sony!
Another reader sent me this: “Still waiting for my NEX 7, but in the meantime my Hawk’s Factory Close Focus Leica M – Sony E adapter arrived. Lets you mount Leica M lenses, just like any other adapter, but it also has a focusing helicoid built in to let you focus 50-80% closer than usual with any M lens. Here’s my review, though you might be interested as it’s exclusively a Sony E mount product right now: http://jbhildebrand.com/2012/gear/hawks-factory-close-focus-adapter-review/“.
The in Stock status of the NEX-7 is changing every day. So feel free to use these linsk to check if and where it is in Stock:
