(SR4) A correction and a confirmation about the Sony 50MP camera.

FacebookShare

I am very busy working on a whole bunch of rumors but let’s start with an important rumor correction. The highly trusted source who shared as first the 50MP camera rumor said that he misunderstood the release timing info he got directly from Sony. The 50MP camera is not going to be announced the next few weeks. But it’s definitely ready to be for sale within 2015. He said sorry to SAR readers for the wrong timing info but there was a miscommunication between Sony and him.  The good news is that another source confirmed the camera will come this year and that indeed the Sony 50MP FF sensor has a very new design and will “easily” outperform the Canon 5ds sensor.

Another good news: Confirmed the A7rII is in production and coming damn soon!

this image shows how the length changes when rotating the adapter.

With that kind of adapter it is possible to shorten the minimum focus distance of M-mount lenses just like the more expensive Voigtlander VM-E close focus adapter. The Shoten adapter costs $199 and is for sale on eBay (Click here).

Image on top show the HDC2500

I have a non-Alpha rumor I want to share for those of you interested in pro video stuff. A source told me a new HDC camera will be announced soon:

The HDC4300 is a camera unit equipped with a 2/3-inch, 9.8 megapixel, 3-chip CMOS image sensor for super motion video camera systems.
In addition to standard HD and HD high frame rate imaging, it also supports 4K multi-format imaging.

And some more info via another source:

Replaces HDC-2500, shoots 4k up to 60fps & 1080p at 240fps. B4 mount 2/3in HD glass, future of 4k Sports OB

For A or E-mount followers: So fare I have yet no reliable info about a new 4K camera like a Sony A7sII or A-mount 4K cam coming at NAB.

Sony Q3/2014 financial results: Sells less cameras but makes more money.

FacebookShare

Bildschirmfoto 2015-03-22 um 08.31.05

First of all let’s start with a good news: Sony is back to profit and is slowly recovering from the deep crisis they went into the last years. Good to know we don’t have to fear anymore that Sony will go bankruptcy :) The full financial report can be downloaded here: sony.net/SonyInfo/IR/financial/fr/14q3_sonypre.pdf

The second news is that while Sony sold less cameras it managed to increase the profit. This is mainly due the fact that Sony is selling much less unprofitable fixed lens small sensor compacts and is focusing on more enthusiast and high-end stuff like RX cameras and E-mount mirrorless. But there is still a lot to do from Sony to growth in terms of market share and customer confidence. How about making a roadmap for A-mount and APS-C E-mount products? About time to give those camera owners something to look forward too!
