(SR4) Sony devloping the 5 Axis SSS with Olympus!

Share


The Olympus 5 axis stabilization presentation video.

Great news folks! As you know the next bunch of A-mount cameras is expected to be launched in early 2014. And of the brand new key features will be the 5-Axis SSS developed in partnership with Olympus! As you know the Olympus E-M5 and the brand new E-P5 have that kind of tech. Sony and Olympus engineers are now developing it further to make it work on Sony’s next Full Frame cameras!

You can see the advantage of the 5 axis IS over the regular 2 axis stabilization on that video:

In short, not only will be the new 400mm f/4.0 A-mount lens be designed with Olympus. Also the new A-mount cameras will get some of the best tech from Olympus. I also hope they will use Olympus JPG engine knowledge to make Sony JPG’s look better.

(SR3) First possible hints about a NEX-5r successor

The NEX-5r has been announced almost one year ago (on August 29). And for Sony time this means that a replacement is not very far away. A SAR reader wrote me the following message: “Just heard a bit of news when sent my NEX 5R for repairing. Since my cam has serious damage I consider getting a new one but the official repair company representative here in Northern Europe told me, that to get on my hands on Nex 5R I have to be quick, because they are taking it off production in June.

Lately I pushed the A-mount rumors but I will soon post some more E-mount rumors too. Keep in mind that the NEX-7 successor, the 85mm f/1.4 and a fast zoom should be announced by end of August!
