You can follow the Sony CES 2015 press annuncement on January 5th live on SAR!

I will embed the Sony live press announcement on SonyAlphaRumors. The conference starts at 5pm PST time on January 5th. That’s…

8pm New York time
01.00 London time
02:00 Berlin time
10:00 Tokyo time

So far I do not expect any new E or A-mount photo camera announcement. There will be certainly new camcorders and maybe an E-mount camcorder too. But don’t worry, major E (and?) A-mount announcements will be made right before the CP+ show in early February. It’s 100% sure they will officially release the new FE lenses they pre-announced at Photokina. There are also rumors about a new A7000 and higher end FE camera. But I am yet not sure which one will come (or if both will come). And while I got reliable rumors about a new A-mount FF camera the source who gave me the info didn’t tell me when the camera would be released. Just to say there is some hope :)

Toshiba Teli Pregius

 

Image Sensor World spotted that Toshiba slide showing a new generation of Sony sensors named “Pregius“. It has global shutter, high frame rate and a yet not quantified “high sensivity-low noise-high dynamic range”. The sensor size offered by Sony goes up to 1.1 inch. Here are all sensor specs:

Toshiba Teli Pregius-1

It’s not clear yet if that sensor tech will be implemented in future larger APS-C and FF sensors.
