NEX-FS700 now shoots 4K with the external HXR-IFR5 unit.


NEX-FS700 Camcorder 4K Update from Sony Professional USA on Vimeo.

That is likely the only bigger A or E-mount related news of the NAB show: The Sony NEX_FS700 E-mount camcorder can shoot 4K with the new external HXRIFR5 unit. Anyway, don’t worry, regular A and E mount rumors are coming soon on SAR and Hasslebald and Zeiss should announce their E-mount stuff soon too!

More info about the 4K news at Blog Sony, Engadget.

New video of the Sony 4K camera (FZ mount, 8 Megapixels, no mirror and coming in 2014).

The video on tops shows you the new 4K Sony prototype. While there are no official specs the camera is “rumored” to have an FZ mount (like the F5 and F55 Cinealta cameras) an 8 Megapixel sensor and definitely no SLT or optical mirror. This is a pure mirrorless camera with Electronic Viewfinder. It’s going to be release sometimes in 2014 and it will compete against the Canon EOS-1D C .

I am not a big fan of videocameras with DSLR shape. Doesn’t really make a lot of sense. I think Blackmagic did a smarter move with the Pocket Cinema Camera ($955 at BHphoto). A compact video only mirrorless camera with CineRAW DNG recording and 220MBs Pro RES. Sony should so a camera like that in E-mount!

Sony patent discloses the new 35mm f/1.8 for Full Frame mirrorless with curved sensor!

Egami spotted the next patent showing a Full Frame lens for the mirrorless NEX or the fixed lens RX system. It is a 35mm f/1.8 lens that has one big characteristic…it has been designed to be ultra compact! A perfect street photography lens! I want that :)

And there is one more particular thing to see on that patent: The lens has been designed for a curved sensor! The main advantage is that the sharpness through the full frame is increased.
