(SR2) Possible A-mount roadmap? Two A-mount cameras and SSM weather sealed primes in 2015. A77II replacement in 2016.

FacebookShare

It’s hard to get info about the A-mount future simply because Sony is yet focused to broaden the E-mount lens range and cementing the E-mount success. All I got in these days is a message from an anonymous source which as usual we have to take for what it is. A yet completely unconfirmed but hopefully true rumor:

1) The ICLA-77M2 is the last a-mount with the old Steady Shot system. It could not be held for the new technology and make release in H1 of FY14. We know that a missed release would have caused damage to the a-mount user base, since we are not doing entry-level a-mounts to fill the gaps anymore.

2) FY15 will see two SLTs with 5 axis and the ICLA-77M2 AF module.

3) The replacement for the 77M2 will come in FY16 H1 and it will not be called the 77M3 ;)  This tech changeover is why the 77M2 has been less featured.  We will re-emphasize the line with the 5 axis introduction.

4) SSM primes all with environmental seals FY15 H2

The source also said that “we have fewer cameras coming but we will make them worth waiting for“.

Let’s hope You source are one of the few telling us the truth on the A-mount future :)

Atomos Shogun previews at EosHD and 3Dkraft.

FacebookShare

Atomos Shogun Introduction from Atomos Video on Vimeo.

Note for German readers: You have plenty of new Sony Blitzangebote today (check list at Dealsrunner).

The Atomos Shogun is finally shipping (in Germany at Redcoon in USA at BHphoto). If you own the A7s and want to record 4K this is the way to go. So let’s read the first previews:

EosHD (Click here) writes:

Something which I am very much looking forward to testing is the support for LUTs. When shooting S-LOG 2 on the A7S without the Shogun it is very difficult to get the correct exposure monitoring from the flat image. The Shogun will allow you to record in S-LOG but monitor in Rec 709 or with a LUT applied so you can see the final look of the footage whilst shooting. It’s a high end IPS panel as well so colour should be absolutely stunning on the display. Additionally Atomos offer a tool to calibrate the screen, with their Spyder device. Further useful features include a start / stop trigger so you can trigger recording on the Shogun the normal way with the camera’s video button, along with time code, WIFI remote control and optional CFast card adapter.

3Dkraft (click here) writes:

The hardware ist finished but the new “AtomOS6” video operating system currently supports only a subset of the announced features:

Atomos assures to release the remaining features in a few weeks. The good news is that the most important feature – the 4K ProRes HDMI recording – is available right now in order to enable the full 4K recording performance of the Sony A7S.
