(SR3) Some sort of Sony small (videostuff?) announcement on July 26th.


A SAR friend posted a small rumor on our SonyAlphaRumors Facebook page (Click here). He said that Sony will have a small announcement on July 26th that possible has to do with the NEX-FS700. This is a super great NEX camera with a not so super available NEX lens range :)

One more thing: There seems to be a small surprise for the late August Sony announcement. There is not only an A99 and NEX-5F coming. Keep your expectations low, it’s not another FF SLT or a new FF mirrorless. I will share the info as soon as I can confirm it via trusted sources.

Back to facebook. I never really pushed the SAR community on Facebook. I think it’s a great tool to read SAR news and get in contact with me. So feel free to click on the “Like” button ;)

Sony RX100 rules in US. Canon NEX competitor coming…

We haven’t seen that with any other Sony camera before. The RX100 rules the Amazon US sales ranking (Click here) and beats any other digital mirrorless, compact or DSLR camera. You don’t see very often a Sony camera beating a Nikon or Canon :)

Speaking of Canon. They will launch a mirrorless system camera and NEX competitor this Monday. Pictures can be seen at I am still not sure if it will use an APS-C sensor. It looks smaller than any NEX camera…

(SR4) More bits about the A99 from the tester…

There will be no XQD support on the A99!

The anonymous A99 tester that shared the info I posted yesterday read your comments and sent me some short answers:

1) He can’t talk about the Image Quality of the camera yet. Firmware is by far not mature enough to make a serious discussion about it
2) Same for video :)
3) The tester confirms that there is no CF nor XQD support.
4) The new hot shoe and the special connector are there to make older accessories work (like the Sony HVL-F56AM)
5) The camera has built-in GPS

Thanks again for all the info you sent us!!!
