(SR3) First rumors about the RX200!

Share

Image on top shows a fake(!) RX100 with hot shoe and Silver variation :)

-

I just got a double hint about a possible new RX200 release:
First Sony Service reported to a SonyUseForum.de user that the RX200 is coming this month!
Second an anonymous source told me that the new RX100 MKII has a new CMOS sensor, Wifi and folding LCD screen.

These are two rumors coming from external and new sources. So take it with a grain of salt.

RX100 links roundup:
RX100 price search links: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.
Cases: Official Sony LCJ-RXA case, Gariz case, more leather case.
Batteries: NP-BX1 Battery.
Special stuff: Multi-Coated LENS ARMOR UV. Magfilter at Amazon (Click here). RX100 filter adapter on eBay (Click here)

(SR4) Sony devloping the 5 Axis SSS with Olympus!


The Olympus 5 axis stabilization presentation video.

Great news folks! As you know the next bunch of A-mount cameras is expected to be launched in early 2014. And of the brand new key features will be the 5-Axis SSS developed in partnership with Olympus! As you know the Olympus E-M5 and the brand new E-P5 have that kind of tech. Sony and Olympus engineers are now developing it further to make it work on Sony’s next Full Frame cameras!

You can see the advantage of the 5 axis IS over the regular 2 axis stabilization on that video:

In short, not only will be the new 400mm f/4.0 A-mount lens be designed with Olympus. Also the new A-mount cameras will get some of the best tech from Olympus. I also hope they will use Olympus JPG engine knowledge to make Sony JPG’s look better.
