At a Sony conference in New York Imaging Resource posted a nice set of slides. The one on top shows you that despite the shrinking worldwide digital camera market sales Sony managed to increase their sales in the interchangeable and premium compact market.

Among the other cools slides we have those (all via Imaging Resource):

Our reader Drasko managed to find and share the single first full size A7rII image sample! You can see it on Draskos Flickr account (Click here). It has been taken with the FE 16-35mm F4 ZA OSS lens at ISO 100.

Download and analyze the picture! I know it’s a way to early to ask this. But my curiosity wins over reason:

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

New Sony A7rII “bigger” size image samples posted!

Share

Bildschirmfoto 2015-06-12 um 09.17.27

Fengniao posted these “bigger” size pictures shot on the A7rII. Still not full size but at least you have some more “pixels” to see on these! Click on the images to open the very big files!

UPDATE: The Fengniao server seems to have hard times loading the images because of the massive visits from SAR. I uploaded the images on WeTransfer (Click here).

Everything you need to know about the new RX10m2.

Share

The new RX10m2 uses the same 1inch stacked sensor as the RX100m4. This means slow motion capability, resolution, 1/32.000 shutter speed and 4K capability are the same. See the full RX100m4 SAR report if you want to know more about those features. So let’s just see the differences between the RX10m2 and RX100m4:

The RX10mw uses a 24-200mm f/2.8 Zeiss lens (same as previous RX10).

AF performance of the RX10 II reaches speeds as fast as 0.09 second. To help you capture momentary shutter opportunities without fail, the adaptable lens also provides the rapid, reliable Direct Drive Super Sonicwave Motor (SSM) for smooth and highly precise focus driving that works together with Fast Intelligent AF.

The RX10m2 records up to 14fps compared to the 16fps of the RX100m4.

RX10m2 image samples can be seen at Sony.net. Videos can be seen here:
RX10 II – High Precision 4K on Youtube.
RX100 IV & RX10 II – Super Slow Motion- Insects on Youtube.
RX100 IV & RX10 II – Super Slow Motion- Children on Youtube.
