(SR5) Hot: Real sketch of the Sony A99 back.

Share

Sometimes I really find crazy stuff in my mailbox. A trusted source sent me a real(!) sketch of the Sony A99 back designed by him. What you see is what you will get with the A99!Basically the almost exactly same back of the Sony A77 (image here). I don’t know how much work he put on this but we all would be glad to receive the sketches from the top and front too…Thanks :)

Stay tuned on SAR: Here is our RSS feed and Twitter stream and the Facebook comunity!

(SR5) NEX-5R and NEX-6 can be controlled in remote via Phone. NEX-6 has a 2359k dot image on viewfinder.

A NEX-6 rendering based on the leaked images by KTFturbo.

Remote control
The NEX-5R and NEX-6 can be controlled in remote via Phone. There should be an APP for Android phones (so for example for these Sony Xperia phones) that will give you full remote control of the NEX cameras.  I don’t know yet if there will be an iPhone app too.

I also have two more news about the NEX-6:
1) the camera has a new 2359k dot image on viewfinder.
2) The Hot shoe is the same of the A99.

Announcement:
There was a bit of a confusion on the announcement date. This depends from the time zone. I know “think” the announcement will be made on August 29th in Japan. Hope to get a reliable hour soon. The NEX-5R only will be announced. The A99, NEX-6 and E-mount FF camcorder will be announced in mid September.
