(SR5) First picture of the NEX-F3!

Share

This is the first leaked picture of the Sony NEX-F3! As you can see it has the same NEX-C3 16 megapixel sensor (with improved image quality due the new BIONZ processor) and it has a new built-in flash and the 180 degree tiltable LCD screen like the Samsung MV800. It will replace the current NEX-C3. Some NEX-C3 kits have been already marked as discontinued at BHphoto (Click here), Digitalrev (Click here) and very low in Stock at Amazon (Click here).

As I told you before it will be announced in mid May along the new A37 and two other new A and E mount zoom lenses!

(SR5) A37 and NEX-F3 with same 16 Megapixel sensor (and improved image quality).

Image of the current Sony A35

Maybe it’s just me but I am no big fan of the Megapixel race. So it’s good to hear from another of my trusted sources that Sony will use a 16 Megapixel sensor within the upcoming new A37 and NEX-F3. It is the same sensor of the current A35 and NEX-C3 but I have been told that there is anew BIONZ processor that improves the image quality. Let’s hope it’s true! That said the A37 will have a similar A35 design and same price of the current model. The NEX-F3 will be completely new and “innovative“.

Two more NEX-FS700 videos!

I think Sony did a great work by releasing the new NEX-FS700. It is getting a lot of positive response on the web and from film makers (I am a film maker!). The video on top is made by Sony with the Sony NEX-FS700. And there is one more video at Studiodaily (Click here). While the camera is great what we are missing are dedicated video lenses with powerzoom, smooth aperture rings and so on. As long as these are missing it will be hard to jump on the E-mount camera :(

All I can say via my sources is that Sony knows that and that they are working on it :)

UPDATE: NEX-FS700 hands-on at Photographybay (Click here).

Sony A57 firmare update and new first impression review

If you own the A57 you can now update the firmware for SLT A57 at Sony UK (Click here). This utility updates the SLT-A57 firmware to version 1.02 , and provides the following benefits:

  1. Improved performance of AF in Continuous Advance Priority AE Mode (both Tele-zoom 12fps and10fps) under some specific conditions.

Digitalcamerainfo (Click here) posted the A57 first impression review: “In our time with the camera, though, we were seriously impressed by the A57’s sheer speed. It’s something we’ve come to expect from Sony’s line of SLT interchangeable lens cameras, but you never really get tired of hearing that shutter click more than 10 times every second. That the camera also continuously focuses during shooting (with moderate success) only enhances the feat.

The camera itself is already in Stock at Amazon (Click here), BHphoto (Click here) and in Europa at Amazon UK (Click here), Amazon Germany (Click here) and Amazon France (Click here).
