Sony launches new XQD cards. (SR5) Yes future A99 camera will support this!

Sony launched a new generation of flash cards called “XQD”! The same day as the first camera that will support those cards, the Nikon D4 (Click here). When using those cards the D4 can record approximately up to 100 frames in RAW format in continuous shooting mode. The cards are abviousely much faster than any current Compact Flash card. You can read specs and watch the rpesentation video at Sony.net (Click here).

A short SR5 rumor I got from my soruces. Not the NEX but the Sony A99 fullframe will be the first camera to support those cards. w it next week (

Nikon D4 analysis (Sony sensor?)


You certainly have heard about the new Nikon D4 fullframe camera (Click here ot read the press release at BH). It has a new 16.2 effective megapixel, full-frame sensor (16.6MP total) and a super 50 – 204,800 ISO range. While there is no info about who made the sensor it’s easy to guess that it has made by Sony (using a tweaked Nikon design). Some of our readers asked me if such a sensor is going to be used inside a future Sony FF SLT camera and my answer is No!!! It will be more interesting to see the sensor that Nikon will put inside the D800. That 36 Megapixel Sony sensor is almost certainly going to be used by Sony in one of his future SLT cameras.

I will give you some important Sony FF update next week when I am back from my busy family trip. Meanwhile let me know what kind of feature you like from the new Nikon. I will check with my sources if Sony is going to “copy” some of them :)

ijsvogel: 500mm f/4.0 (maybe) coming in April.

The well known Dyxum forum user “ijsvogel” wrote that the new super tele 500mm f/4.0 could finally be announced in April 2012. That lens is floating around different shows since years! I am wondering what’s the reason behind all these delays.

This lens will cost a lot! The Canon 500mm costs $6,799.00 at Amazon (Click here) and the Nikon 500mm costs even more (Click here to check at Amazon). I am certainly not on the waiting list for that lens but I hope there will be other lenses coming along that one.

P.S.: My personal bet. it’s not coming in April…but at Photokina :)
