Chipworks ripped the Nikon D600 to see who made the 24 Megapixel Full Frame sensor. And as you can see from the image on top it’s made by Sony. Of course while the sensor may be similar to the Sony A99 the features of the cameras are completely different. The A99 sensor has phase detection pixels on it, and the camera is weather sealed and is a more advanced hybrid video&still camera. But for now the cheaper price of the D600 made it become a popular hotseller at Amazon (here is the ranking). Sony may need to release a sort of cheap A95 camera that can fight in the same league of the Canon 6D and Nikon D600.
Dxomark tested the Sony NEX-5R sensor which has almost the exact score of the NEX-5n (78 versus 77 points). Of course the NEX-5R has some nice new features compared ot the older NEX-5n, but the price of the NEX-5n is that good now that it is the best selling mirrorless camera on Amazon (ranking here).
Our friends over at The.me (Click here) interviewed Mr.Yosuke Aoki from Sony. Here are just some of the most interesting statements:
– Mr. Aoki says that all Sony RX1 photos we have seen so far don’t yet show off the compact full-frame’s camera full potential.
– He also admitted that “We’re studying the possibility” of doing a Full Frame mirrorless system.
– “Canon and Nikon are traditional camera brands. Sony stands for uniqueness and electronics. Those we’d like to optimize. We plan to use electronics and technology to change camera development.”
An unnamed Sony executive told THEME about SonyAlphaRumors. They don’t want to push to close these website. At that point I only want to say that I know well that many Sony managers do appreciate most of my work (not all of course). And I appreciate the great innovations coming thanks to the hard work of engineer’s and managers. I hope I can be one of the (small) vehicles capable of bringing some excitement and visibility on future Sony products. So dear Sony, send me some anonymous rumors about the next A1 and FF mirrorless please! …just joking
Nigel and the A99: Famous fashion photographer Nigel Barker tested the A99 and writes: “I had assumed the camera would be heavier, but it’s svelte, balanced and very well weighted. With 1080p video and the tilt screen, the A99 isn’t just a force to be reckoned with, it’s the next supermodel.” But to be honest Nigel isn’t really giving us a real clue about the A99 strengths and weaknesses. The best article you can read is from Frank Doorhof. That yes is a worthy to be read!
