Poki on SonyAlphaForum.
I shoot with E-mount cameras since the NEX-5 back in 2010. Currently, I’m shooting a NEX-7, with which I’m perfectly happy.

FS7 4K E-mount camcorder review by TheCameraStoreTV.

Share

Even non camcorder fans should look at TheCameraStore’s Sony FS7 4K camcorder review. You really will see  how important that camera is to push the E-mount system as a whole. And Sony really listened to the customers to make a close to perfect camera. Something we hope will happen with future E-mount photo cameras too!

(SR3) New DSLR styled APS-C E-mount camera coming soon.

A3000

The current Sony A3000

An anonymous source told me a DSLR-sized E-mount camera has been spotted “testing in Shanghai“. He says “from the actual size, I would think it is an E mount camera instead of FE mount“. It’s likely that he is talking about the A3000 replacement which is likely to come this Spring.

The Sony A3000 has been announced one and a half-year ago (Aug  2013). It’s main goal is to appeal the mass market by offering a SLR-alike design. I don’t know what you think but I would also like the A9 to have a more DSLR design too. Mainly because it means bigger size with better placed controls and better grip.
