(SR5) NEX-5R and NEX-6 can be controlled in remote via Phone. NEX-6 has a 2359k dot image on viewfinder.

A NEX-6 rendering based on the leaked images by KTFturbo.

Remote control
The NEX-5R and NEX-6 can be controlled in remote via Phone. There should be an APP for Android phones (so for example for these Sony Xperia phones) that will give you full remote control of the NEX cameras.  I don’t know yet if there will be an iPhone app too.

I also have two more news about the NEX-6:
1) the camera has a new 2359k dot image on viewfinder.
2) The Hot shoe is the same of the A99.

Announcement:
There was a bit of a confusion on the announcement date. This depends from the time zone. I know “think” the announcement will be made on August 29th in Japan. Hope to get a reliable hour soon. The NEX-5R only will be announced. The A99, NEX-6 and E-mount FF camcorder will be announced in mid September.

Filmmaker will not believe me on this: NEX-VG900 Full Frame E-mount camera for a tiny bit more than 3.000 Euro!


The image on top shows the just announced Sony NEX-EA50UH Camcorder with 18-200mm Servo Zoom Lens. The Full Frame NEX-VG900 costs less!

I know I am going to be crucifixed for posting this rumor. But I am sure that the rumor will turn out to be true within the next few weeks. So please cheaters…just have a bit of patience before to attack SAR :)

The new NEX VG-900
We just got an unexpected news via trusted sources. Until now I thought Sony is working on a High End and expensive E-mount FF camcorder only but after talking with multiple sources I can unveil this:
Sony will announce the new NEX-VG900 at around mid September. It is a Full Frame E-mount camcorder (Full Frame in photographic terms!). And it costs just a bit over 3.000 Euro! It records 1080p60 in AVCHD format (24Mbps/s). A FF camcorder for 3.xxx Euro is something almost unbelievable. Of course as usual, this alone will not make the camcorder successful. I am working to get the details of the camcorder and hope to post them soon.

E-mount FF
I repeat it again. Current E-mount lenses like the super Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 will work in crop mode only. And you will have a “special adapter” to make Alpha lenses work on the cameras. There will be no E-mount FF lenses yet. For those of you that take more about photography than stills…a “photocamera” with FF E-mount is scheduled for a 2013 release.

Reminder: There is an announcement scheduled for August 29th (NEX-5R) while the E-mount FF camcorder, the NEX-6 and the A99 will be announced two weeks later! Stay tuned on SAR, subscribe our RSS feed and Twitter stream and the Facebook comunity to not miss any hot news!

NEX-5R announcement on August 29th (SLT, E-mount FF and NEX-6 in September)

Quick update about the announcement date. It looks like Sony is going to have an announcement of the NEX-5R only(!) on August 29th in the afternoon (European time). The A99, NEX-6, NEX and Alpha lenses and the E-mount FF surprise are going to be announced in mid September. P.S.: August 29th is next Wednesday.

Something terrific: I am now writing my next rumor. It is a must read rumor for all film makers and it concerns the new E-mount FF camcorder(s). I just got a surprising info (rated SR5)…it is so surprising that I bet that film makers on different forums will write that I invented the rumor. I expect many personal attacks and SAR denigration. I ask all these guys to just wait until mid September before to kill me…ok? :)
