(SR5) First image of the new ILC-3000 (A3000 in Japan). 230K LCD and 1,44 Million dot EVF.


And this is the first image of the Alpha 3000. As I told you before it has a new 20 Megapixel sensor and a 230k LCD. Price for the body will be around 300 Pounds (converted this could be more or less $300 or 350 Euro).

UPDATE: My source made a mistake when writing the camera specs. The 230K resolution refers to the LCD screen and not to the EVF. The VEF should have a 1,44 Million dot EVF. This looks like a very nice camera after all!

RX1R vs RX1 at DxOmark. R model is sharper but has a tiny bit less dynamic range.

DxOmark (Click here) published the RX1R test and compared it with the RX1 model. The RX1R is indeed sharper but the truth (according to DxO) is that the it comes at a cost. There is a tiny bit less dynamic range on the newer RX1R. But as we discussed here many times before, these tests are certainly to take not too…seriously :)

(SR5) More images of the new NEX-5T

Here are two new images of the NEX-5T. As you see there isn’t much difference with the Sony NEX-5R. It also shares the same sensor. Unlike the 5R the 5T has It has NFC, FN-button control like on SLT cameras, new Menu Interface and a couple of more things.

Now all that’s left to leak is the ILC-3000 cheap entry-level E-mount camera. I think we will see it soon…

It has a filter diameter of 55mm and will cost around $1,000. And than we have an image of the 18-105mm G PZ lens with that huge 72mm filter size diameter. A lens made for filmmakers :)
