A Chinese reader sent me that A77MII image he got from Xitek. I asked my sources and this image is legit. And these more detailed specs I got via trusted source:

A-mount SLT camera
Bionz X processor
24 megapixel “Exmor” CMOS sensor with primary color filters
14 Bit RAW
50-51200 ISO
12fps with up to 60 JPEG image buffer
Records video in AVCHD 2.0
79 points (15 points cross type). with center F2.8 sensor and -2EV. Covers 40% of the frame.
1.2 Million dot 3 inch LCD (not touchscreen). 3 way tiltable.
2.3 Million dot OLED viewfinder
Shutter 1/8000 up to 30sec
On sensor stabilization for stills (electronic for movies)
WiFi and NFC
Up to 3 Memory Recall settings. 11 customizable buttons.
Dust and moisture resistant and magnesium body
$1199(1200 Euro for the body and shipment in June

I am surprised the camera doesn’t record XAVC-S! But I have been told the camera is all about delivering the best possible autofocusing experience. And it’s very impressive in that!

UPDATE: More images via The.me. Thanks!

Atomos Shogun for your A7s on preorder at BH. Sony NEX-6 kit now for $524. A6000+Zeiss deal back!

Share

As I reported before you still will have to wait a couple of weeks to learn the price and preorder of the Sony A7s. But if you want to record in 4K you can already preorder the Atomos Shogun at BHphoto (Click here). By the way, ThePhoBlographer posted a hands on with the A7s: “From the JPEG results and prints that we saw, this camera has the absolute cleanest ISO 3200 output that we’ve ever seen.

And here is the next price drop:

The NEX-6 with kit lens now sells for even less at Amazon US (Click here) and BHphoto (with extra SD card). $524 is a real bargain!

And the $300 off on the A6000+16-70mm Zeiss is now back at Amazon US (Click here) and Adorama (Click here).
